Pink Pearl[src]


Pink Pearl worked as an international terrorist under the disguise of side show attraction at circuses. She invaded and took over the circus of Clementine D'arbanville, a friend of Northstar's. When Northstar and Jeanne-Marie came to D'arbanville's aid, they faced Pink Pearl and her band of terrorists. Despite their super-powers the twins were captured by Pearl. Once captured, Pearl revealed her plan to set off an explosion which would kill the Prime Minister of Canada as well as the President of the United States. She would then frame D'arbanville, a former Quebec sovereign for the explosion. Aurora came into control over Jeanne-Marie and was able to free herself. Northstar, Aurora and D'arbanville then stopped Pearl and her group. During the battle, Pearl appeared to die when a knife was embedded in her chest. However, she had simply passed out from shock, but was permanently scarred by the knife blade.[1]

After some prison time, Pearl apparently became a legitimate businesswoman, opening 'Cloisters', an exotic male dancing establishment. When Aurora arranged for Diamond Lil's bachelorette party to be held there, she was unaware that Pearl ran the club. When Aurora got up and danced with one of the male dancers, Pink Pearl attacked her, demanding she leave. After a brief skirmish, the three Alphans were arrested for disturbing the peace, as Pearl, while she may have used excessive force, was ejecting a disturbance from her business. [2]

Pearl later turned up as a member of Superia's all-female supervillainess army the Femizons. [3]

Pink Pearl later on became a member of the Shadow Council's incarnation of the Masters of Evil.[4]

Powers and Abilities


Pearl is surprisingly strong and nimble for someone her size. Although not superhumanly durable, her body fat has enabled her to survive a knife being embedded in her chest.


Pink Pearl speaks in third-person.
