Operation: Zero Tolerance

A doctor at Our Mother of Mercy Hospital in New York City, Cecilia was brought into the world of the X-Men during the Operation: Zero Tolerance crisis. She had received an offer to join Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters three years prior, but rejected the offer and asked Professor X to keep her status as a mutant secret.[4]

Attacked by Prime Sentinels while working, she was saved by both her defensive shield and through the aid of Iceman. Banding together with Sabra, Marrow, and Charlotte Jones the group faced Bastion until S.H.I.E.L.D. interfered.[5]

Returning to an abandoned X-Mansion, Cecilia used what little tools she had to remove a bomb from Cyclops' chest. Attempting to save her career, she returned to work to have a unique last day. She treated a wounded Daredevil, learning his secret identity in the process, and was tricked by the Legacy Virus-ravaged Pyro into being released. Although reluctant to become an X-Man, she was fired from her job and ended up joining the band of mutants.[6]

Later, she was caught up in the X-Men's battle with the Neo, a villainous group of mutants who claimed to have evolved beyond the level of other mutants. Reyes was trapped in the Neo's fortress below New York City and used a street drug called Rave to make her mutant powers more destructive, ensuring her survival. The X-Men rescued her, and the telepathic Xavier helped her kick her addiction to Rave.[7]


Dr. Reyes was abducted by the Weapon X program and taken to Neverland, the mutant concentration camp.[8] While many mutants perished, including her fellow X-Man Maggott,[9] she was kept alive due to her physician skills.[1]

The camp was eventually abandoned by Weapon X, and Reyes' whereabouts were unknown.[1]


Cecilia's older brother, Colonel Miguel Reyes, was assigned to head Sentinel Squad O*N*E* security on the Xavier School grounds, with the purpose of finding out the fate of his sister, missing since M-Day.[10]

Dr. Reyes eventually resurfaced working as an unlicensed doctor in New York City.[1]

Back to X-Men

She later moved to Utopia with the X-Men and works as a doctor there.[11]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


Cecilia Reyes is a mutant.

Psioplasmic Bio-Field: generates a psioplasmic bio-field, increasing her durability. The field extends six inches from any point on her body. This field constantly surrounds her body at every given moment, completely invisible, and only takes on a glass-like translucency when subconsciously activated by a threat.

The field reacts to kinetic impact, energy signatures, certain psionic forces, temperature changes, etc. The bio-field is an extension of Cecilia's body, and so she feels the attack as its effect is dispersed over the field. Her power is subconscious, meaning it protects her from harm whether she wants it to or not, or is aware of the incoming threat or not.

Eventually Cecilia learned how to manifest the field at will, as a weapon. Surrounding her fists with psioplasmic force can increase the bludgeoning power behind her punches; she formed spikes to kill the Neo known as Jaeger;[12] she could expel the field outward in a hammer-like ram, etc.[13]

Cecilia is a capable medical doctor and surgeon, making her the only member of the X-Men who is a true doctor of medicine.

Strength level

Dr. Reyes possesses the normal human strength of a woman of her age, height and build who engages in moderate regular exercise.


  • Cecilia Reyes first used her powers offensively in X-Men Vol 2 #100 on accident. Part of her "shield" jumped out at Jaeger, killing him.
  • After taking an extremely addictive and illegal drug called "Rave" to temporarily boost her powers,[15] Dr. Reyes became addicted.[16]
  • She hates Trish Tilby,[1] possibly due to their relation to Beast.


  • In the 2006 movie X-Men: The Last Stand, Kavita Rao was played by Iranian-American actress Shohreh Aghdashloo. This is despite claims made by Aghdashloo in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that she would be playing Dr. Cecilia Reyes. Raph Winter, producer of all three movies, subsequently stated that Aghdashloo would be playing Rao.
