Adriene Frost ran her own company Meridian Enterprises, and hadn't spoken to her sister Emma for years. When Frost Enterprises took a major hit in the stock market, Emma was forced to turn to Adrienne for financial backing. Adrienne agreed, but only on the condition that she be made co-headmistress of Emma's Massachusetts Academy, then home of Generation X.
Adrienne convinced her sister to re-open the school to the public to raise the funds necessary to keep the school open. As a result of the new human student body, Generation X was forced to wear school uniforms to hide their identities. At first, Adrienne seemed to be great with the kids, even providing them with new costumes. In the end, though, her true intentions were revealed when she trapped the students' minds in a psychic recreation of the Hellions' deaths, hoping to torture her sister by making her watch her students die again. Fortunately, the team broke the illusion, and Adrienne revealed herself as the new White Queen before teleporting away using a device concealed as a necklace around her neck. Her assumption of the White Queen name was a ruse with which she stole over a million dollars from the London Hellfire Club.
Adrienne fled to America and forced Emma to re-admit her back into the school, threatening to publicly reveal the school as a secret training ground for mutants. Secretly, she was already instigating anti-mutant incidents around the school, so the threat appeared even more real. She then revealed to already concerned parents the fact that the Academy was a school for mutants, and then set a bomb that led to Synch's death. Following that, Emma Frost confronted Adrienne and shot her. Emma then hid Adrienne's death from her students, going so far as to psychically mind-wipe an investigating policeman. Emma then assumed control of her estate.
Adrienne appeared once more-- like that of a mental illusion to her sister Emma, who was having conflicting emotions about having killed her. In the end, however, Emma realized she was not sorry that she had killed Adrienne, only that she didn't kill her before she endangered her students.
