Daughter of Scott Summers & Jean Grey from an Alternate Timeline. One time host of the Phoenix Force.


Rachel Summers is pretty much known only to the X-Men. She seems to have some weird family connection to Scott Summers and Jean Grey and knows most of the X-Men even if they do not know her; alternate reality stuff.


Rachel Anne 'Ray' Grey-Summers is the daughter of Jean Grey and Scott Summers from an alternate timeline that mirrored the prime reality before diverging drastically. In her reality, Senator Robert Kelly was assassinated causing a widespread fear and paranoia against mutants, causing an anti-mutant candidate to win the next election. The X-Men were declared fugitives and one by one she saw those she had loved and admired killed or imprisoned as the Sentinels began a purge of all mutant-life. Finally the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters was attacked and destroyed by Federal Troops; the only survivor of the attack was Rachel who had been found at the side of Professor's Xavier's body.

She would be tortured and brainwashed after her capture by sadistic scientists who turned her into a mutant 'hound', being forced to use her psionic powers to hunt down other mutants for the authorities including people she loved and was forced to kill. It was during one particularly sadistic torture session that Rachel broke free of her brainwashing, the emotional intensity of her grief and anguish over the things she had done combined with the pain allowing her to regain her former self; she attacked her captors and was rendered useless as a hound.

Rachel was imprisoned with other surviving mutants for experimentation at a Containment Facility where she managed to re-join surviving members of the X-Men she had long thought dead. The group of them would hatch a plan to save the world from this horrible fate by changing the past in a desperate attempt that could cost all of them their lives. Their first attempt was unsuccessful and they had found that the past could not be changed as they had attempted to. In the intervening time, Rachel found herself the only survivor of the X-Men along with another when the rest of the team had perished in an assault on the Sentinel's Headquarters.

The other survivor and Rachel attempted once more to find a way to correct the mistakes of the past, with Rachel sending her astral projected-self back in time, where she would first encounter the Phoenix Force. Rachel passed out upon her encounter with the Phoenix Force as well as the strain of her time travel and it was then that her friend made a deal with the Phoenix Force. Rachel's powers were boosted and she was sent back in time physically, instead of being sent back to her own time period she arrived in the mainstream reality.

The young mutant and survivor of an entire reality found herself returned to a time when the X-Men had all lived once more and there was no assassination to prevent. She found some of the horrors she had lived through hard to remember, her memory fragmented and disjointed through time travel but she felt that she was home; at least for a time.

Not long after her arrival at the Xavier Institute of her reality, Rachel had seemingly disappeared again as mysteriously as she had arrived. The Sentinel Nimrod had pursued her from her own Timeline and attempted to eliminate her, it was the Phoenix Force within her that saved her life after several journeys through different timelines. After the destruction of pursuer and the apparent elimination of her own timeline Rachel would become lost within two separate streams of time.

One Rachel would become stranded in the future and become Mother Askani; founder of the Clan Askani. The other Rachel would be sent to the end of time itself where she was captured and depowered, the Phoenix Force within her being enslaved. It was her brother Nathan, the man known as Cable who would manage to save her and return her to the prime reality.

For most of the X-Men, Rachel had only been gone for a few months since her initial appearance and disappearance. Her travels had taken her what seemed like years through the time stream, her brother keeping the secret about her return while she recovered from the ordeals she had been through. Taking on the codename Marvel Girl, just like her mother once did Rachel is happy to be home and among her family once more.

Character Details

Rachel on the surface is a nice person who can be spirited and determined. However she is haunted by the days of her future past when she lost everyone she cared about. She's gotten past the emotional volatility that came with those losses but it doesn't mean she is over everything she has been through. Most of the time she feels like an outsider but it's caused her to be loyal to her family, the X-Men above all else.
