Creators and Appearances
First Appearance


Christian Frost is the only son in the Frost family, with his sisters Emma Frost, Adrienne Frost and Cordelia Frost. Of his family he was closest to Emma.[1]

Christian was the one member of the family who didn't want to have anything to do with the family business. Yet when his father Winston Frost learned Christian was gay he threatened to disown him if he didn't dump his boyfriend, Dante Ortega, and move back home. Christian defied his father and left the family, only remaining in contact with Emma. When Winston retaliated by using his great power and influence to have Christian's boyfriend framed and deported, Christian became deeply depressed and turned to substance abuse.[2]

Emma Frost became very worried for Christian and asked their father to get him help. Winston claimed that he would help Christian but lied and instead sent him to a mental institution for ex-gay conversion treatments.[3] At some point, Winston Frost apparently had Christian released from the institution so he could allegedly take over as the heir to his business empire.[4]

Emma discovered this and went to see him at her father's home, but Winston met her at the door and forced her to retreat using never-before-demonstrated psionic powers. Worried, Emma tried to recruit Iceman to help her rescue her brother, and, despite some initial reluctance, Bobby agreed to accompany Emma back to her father's. When they got there, they found Winton dead and discovered Christian was the one with powers, having created a projection of his father. After using Bobby's mind to calm Christian down, Emma decided to take over Frost Technologies and work with Christian to regain control.[4]

White Bishop

Upon the creation of the new mutant nation of Krakoa, the Hellfire Club was reformed as the Hellfire Trading Company with Emma as its White Queen once again and Christian as her White Bishop.[5]

He has also since entered a relationship with Bobby Drake.[6]

Powers and Abilities


  • Astral Energy Manipulation: Christian is able to draw upon and materialize energy from the astral plane and project it as destructive material energy psychic blasts. These blasts cause both physical and mental damage to the victim. He can also create psionic energy constructs. Thus far he has only created a projection of his father, which usually looks like an orange hologram. But on at least one occasion the projection was lifelike enough to convince Emma Frost that it was her actual father.[4]
  • Familial Power Immunity: Similar to his two sister's, Adrienne and Cordelia, Christian is also immune to his sister's Emma's Telepathic powers and she was unable to completely dive into his mind to help him during his rampage.[4]




  • Christian Frost is a gay man who suffers from major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder due to being severely mentally abused by his father and unwillingly admitted into a mental institution for ex-gay conversion treatments.
  • For a long time, Christian seemed to be the only one of the Frost siblings lacking mutant powers, but they have recently manifested. However, it has not been revealed when exactly they did.
