(Power Line#1 (fb) - BTS) - As one of the Shadows, Christina lived for an undisclosed time period (multiple periods of their lives together are pictured in Michael's paintings), unaging, until she and his husband, Michael, had children, starting with Barbara, at which point they began to age anew.

(Power Line#1 (fb) - BTS) - Barbara's young son, Victor, always ran to the forest to play. 

(Power Line#1 (fb)) - Michael explained to Victor that immortality was nothing balanced against the joy Victor and Barbara had given him and Christina. 

    After Michael noted that Victor's weak force field at least was not bothered by mosquitoes, Christina told Michael to stop teasing their son, after which she gave Victor the World Wrestling Association magazine featuring his uncle, Ripley "Ripper" Weaver, which had arrived in the mail. Christina then informed Michael that Emmanuel (apparently in charge of security) was at the front gate, and Emmanuel advised Michael that he (Tyler Ravenscore) was there. guillermos-christina-88194-death

    After Tyler advised that their discussion was between them, man to man, Michael countered that this was a family matter and that his family would stay. Tyler accepted this before noting that Dirk, Tyler's son and the leader of the Ravenscore family, had decided that the Ravenscore-Guillermos feud had gone on centuries too long and that he was there because they wanted to see all the hatred and bitterness done away with. 

    Tyler subsequently clarified that this would be accomplished "By doing away with your family, of course" as he opened a portal allowing numerous powered and/or armed members of the Ravenscore family to enter the Guillermos villa.

    Hitting the alarm on a panel, Michael alerted Emmanuel of the intruders and then blasted a desk back over on top of Tyler, wiping the grin off of his face, but it was too late. Christina, Barbara, and Emmanuel all fell before the Ravenscores. 
(Power Line#1 (fb) - BTS) - Michael apparently sacrificed himself getting Victor to safety.

    In case you're not familiar with the Shadowline, here's your primer.

    Victor's weak field complimented the powers of Lenore Castle, with whom he partnered in Powerline.
