Risque[src]

History

Origin

After her Cuban father, and Seminole mother divorced when she was twelve, Gloria Munoz moved out with her mother and lived with her until she was 16. Having discovered her mutant powers, she left to live on her own and spent some time in Miami. During this time, Sledge helped her out of some trouble, and she promised to aid him in the future, a favor which was eventually repaid when she was tasked with bringing him the mutant Warpath.[9]

Adventures with Warpath

Luring Warpath to a meeting with an urgent message, Risque exploded a car near him to get his attention, and he threw a car at her in retaliation, which Risque imploded. She kissed Warpath and then fled, leaving a mysterious first impression.[2] When Warpath was injured in a battle with Selene of the Externals, Risque pulled him away and took him to Florida, where she helped him recuperate and convinced him to stay with her, not even calling his team X-Force, to tell them where he was. The two became romantically involved and spent days mostly relaxing, though they also prevented the anti-mutant Friends of Humanity from harming a burn victim the group thought was a mutant.[10]

With James

When Warpath heard reports of disaster striking New York City, he led Risque back to the X-Mansion, where they found Mister Sinister fighting X-Force and joined in battle against him. Unfortunately, they were all knocked out as Nate Grey launched a powerful psychic attack against Sinister that was reflected on X-Force.[11] While they were all still unconscious, Sledge's mutant servants Blob and Mimic pulled Risque out,[12] leaving Warpath wondering what had happened to her.[13]

Sledge reminded Risque of their deal so she met with him again and took him to a nightclub, where they were attacked by Blob and Mimic. They managed to defeat the duo, but Risque realized she could no longer stall and sedated Warpath with a drugged drink and delivered him to Sledge. Seeking to lay low, Risque then went to Wackyworld, a theme park she loved as a child, but X-Force tracked her there. She evaded them, even using her power to collapse a wall on Caliban, X-Force's monstrous mutant tracker, but when Caliban suffered a nervous system attack, Risque slowed to help him and was captured. X-Force made her take them to Sledge and Warpath, but once they got there the two had already discussed everything, and Warpath was ready to go back to his team. Before leaving, he told Risque he felt betrayed and didn't want to see her again.[9]

Later, Risque teamed with the Vanisher to steal the Heart of Pele, a sacred jewel in Hawaii. The Hawaiian goddess Pele found her and took her form, leaving her in an enchanted sleep on the beach, while she teamed up with X-Force, and fought the Lava Men.[14] When the ethereal Demon Bear rampaged through one of Sledge's holdings, Risque was sent to aid X-Force in stopping it. Risque was reunited with Warpath and the two were briefly transported to an alternate dimension where they battled an alternate Danielle Moonstar, and helped defeat the Bear.[15]

After Warpath

Risque joined the X-Corporation, set up by Charles Xavier to protect the rights of mutants internationally, and was based in Hong Kong with Domino, another former X-Force member. Within a few weeks, Risque learned of mutants being killed for body parts to be transplanted into regular humans and decided to investiagte, but was murdered by John Sublime's U-Men.[6]

Risque, along with many other deceased mutants, was resurrected by Selene and Eli Bard with the Transmode Virus. During this time, she met James once more,[7] but was presumably returned to the after-life after Selene's defeat.[8]

S.W.O.R.D.

Risque returned to life, presumably revived by The Five, and became a citizen of Krakoa. She then joined S.W.O.R.D.'s mutant sub-team The Six, under the command of Abigail Brand.[3]

Powers

Using her powers

Inorganic Implosion: Risque can create localized gravity fields to affect inorganic matter, placing a gravitronic charge within an object to compress it into a small, high-density mass and then maneuver that gravity charge to propel the object at high velocities.[5] Despite the object's change in size, it maintains its mass, allowing Risque to hurl it at opponents, fully or in various pieces.[11]

Abilities

Risque is naturally agile and has excellent endurance, though not at known superhuman levels.[5]

Trivia

  • Gloria Dolores is named after both her grandmothers.[1]
