Quote1.png When I went to be with the X-Men, I found a new way to use my powers. To me, it was a whole new lease on life. I made men horny for good instead of evil. But you know what that really means? Just a whore in a different wrapper, Miss Floyd... a whore in a different wrapper. Quote2.png
Stacy X[src]

History

Miranda grew up in a Texas trailer park and was popular at school until her mutant powers manifested.[2] With no job skills and no money to support herself, she had to take a route to survive: sex work. She used her mutant abilities for her benefit, first on the streets and later when she was scouted by Madame Drache of the X-Ranch.[citation needed]

Soon the congregates and leaders of the mutant-hating Church of Humanity attacked the mutant brothel and burned it to the ground. The X-Men arrived and rescued her. Stacy joined the X-Men.[citation needed]

Stacy soon had to confront the Church members who eagerly sought her demise. During one of her first missions, Stacy was accidentally teleported by a member of the Church to their cathedral headquarters. The X-Men arrived and rescued her before any harm could be done by the Church and its leader the Supreme Pontiff.[citation needed]

Instead of using her mutant pheromones to ply an illicit trade, she made practical use of them, allowing the X-Men to gain ground on those who would do harm.[citation needed]

During her membership with the X-Men she tried to seduce members Archangel and Nightcrawler.[citation needed] After a few missions she quit the team, and left behind a video of herself jumping rope naked for Archangel.[3]

M-Day and New Warriors

She lost her mutant powers due to M-Day and returned to the streets and sex work. Stacy was very depressed by losing her powers.[4]

As Ripcord

She was recruited into Night Thrasher's newest incarnation of New Warriors. Her skin condition was cleared up and she was given a suit with built-in tentacles, presumably made of steel or a harder metal. She was apparently killed during a confrontation with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Cape Killers.[5]

Vengeance

However, she appeared again at a club with Sugar Kane and the Ultimate Nullifier, alive and apparently repowered.[6]

She was later seen partying in Doomstadt, just before the Young Masters' attack.[7]

Seeking Support

Stacy X attended the first meeting of the Mindfulness of Mutant Appearances, a support group set up by Domino and Nightcrawler for mutants unable to pass as normal humans. After fellow attendee Briquette took issue with the normal-looking Stacy X's presence, Stacy X revealed that her previous appearance as repowered was really her using makeup to imitate her former scaly appearance and that she had been seeking a reason to live since the loss of her powers, hoping that this group would be just that. Briquette apparently reconciled with and embraced Stacy X as the meeting closed.[8]

Krakoa

At some point afterwards, Stacy X joined the mutant nation of Krakoa and regained her powers.[9]

She began operating in the Bower a place where people who don't know how they fit into Krakoa go to find a release for their frustrations. She also runs a daycare for abandoned mutant babies.[9]

Powers

Pheromone Control: Stacy X was sensitive to pheromone emissions. She secreted her own pheromones upon skin-to-skin contact, allowing her to stimulate body functions in others to cause orgasms, vomiting, nausea, rectal malfunctions, etc. This power was seen to work much like Rogue's absorption power, as seen when Radius' forcefield nullified her pheromone control. She is able to heal others by speeding up their healing process, and can increase their stamina so that they won't tire easily, giving her teammates rushes of adrenaline.[citation needed] After regaining her powers, she acquired the ability to launch her pheromones into the air and influence people without making direct contact them.[9]

Scaled-Skin: She had snake-like, scaly skin that gave her an unknown degree of durability.[2]

Abilities

Stacy was an expert fighter with some martial arts abilities,[2] capable of challenging even Wolverine, and defeat him while laughing.[citation needed]

Paraphernalia

Equipment

While a member of the New Warriors, Miranda's costume was based on Slyde's frictionless suit and was equipped with enhanced technology, including Web-Shooters, Frog Springs, and energy whips.[2]

Trivia

  • Stacy X was initially meant to be in the third X-Men movie, X-Men: The Last Stand. Actress Dania Ramirez initially auditioned for the role of Stacy X before landing her part as Callisto.[10] Also, actress Omahyra Mota was said to be playing the character, before being revealed she was actually playing the character Arclight.[11]
  • She was originally called X-Stacy, as she could use her pheromone powers to induce bliss, but after repeated error, she became known as Stacy-X.[citation needed]
