One night while playing Truth or Dare with two of his friends in a dorm room on University of Sheffield campus, the trio began discussing mutants and Zee disclosed his fear of becoming a freak for other to gawk at. Almost immediately afterward, Zee's powers activated causing his nose to fall off and his face to begin to melt. One of his friends, Luke, began taking pictures of him to post online and making fun of the situation. Zee quickly became distraught, and grabbing a large knife from the kitchen, he committed suicide alone in the bathroom.
Although Zeeshan's life as a mutant was very short, his impact on the Hope and the Lights was significant.
Powers and Abilities
- Liquid Skin: Zee's powers seem to allow his skin, membranes and cartilage to melt into a liquid form. This reaction seems uncontrollable. Because of his abrupt suicide, it remains unknown if his powers would have progressed to the point of controlling his liquidizing or if he would be able to reform into a solid.
This status of being a post-M-Day activated mutant gave him also the following characteristic:
- Lights Bonding: Zeeshan's suicide affected Hope and the Lights. That situation was witnessed by Kitty Pryde.
- Zee's story was directly inspired by the outbreak of very public gay suicide stories occurring in 2010.
- Zeeshan is most likely of Arabic descent.
