Alexis was abandoned by her mother at the age of 2 and brought up in a series of care homes. This upbringing showed her many of the problems with the way society was set up, and how diminished the life chances were of many of the other children she grew up with. She vowed to change this, and fortunately, as powers developed, that looked like a real possibility. Alexis is able to place people into trances, where they are briefly pliable to suggestion. This power comes with a lot of temptations, and in the wrong hands could be a powerful force for evil. This ability brought her attention from the multinational corporation ‘Equilibrium’ as they looked to create a superheroine group to replace the ever-in-turmoil Elite Force. Now part of the ‘Guardian Angels’, run by CEO of Equilibrium ‘Ex-Mayor Killscape’, Alexis has been rebranded as ‘Lady X’, a play on her first name, but also a nod to her mysterious powers and the desires of those who guide her.
