Ellie Phimister was a Genoshan teenager and a student of Emma Frost. Her mutant power gave her precognitive nightmares and premonitions. She chose the codename Negasonic Teenage Warhead for herself.[1]

Ellie in Emma Frost's telepathy class


During a telepathy class with Emma Frost, Ellie revealed that the previous night she had the same nightmare fifty times wherein all people in Genosha were exterminated. She also pointed out that she experienced the same vision during the class. At that point, Cassandra Nova's gigantic Wild Sentinels appeared on Genosha and wiped out half the world's mutant population: 16 million people.[1]

Emma Frost carrying Ellie's corpse out of the ruins of Genosha

Ellie's corpse was carried by Emma Frost, who had survived the Genoshan genocide thanks to her secondary mutation, when she was found by Beast and Jean Grey. Emma proclaimed the teenager to be a credit to her family and the mutant race and suffered a mental breakdown when she found out Ellie was dead.[2]

When Emma Frost's subconscious began attacking the X-Men due to a telepathic attack planted by Cassandra Nova, Negasonic Teenage Warhead appeared as a member of the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club with the Black King and Perfection.[3]

She faced off against Kitty Pryde and predicted she'd uncontrollably phase through the ground, which cause her to do so.[4] The telepathic projection of Ellie was "murdered" by Cyclops when he short her with a handgun.[5]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


Ellie was a mutant with psychically based powers. The full extent of her abilities is unknown, but her powers include:

  • Telepathy: Ellie was in Emma Frost's telepathy class suggesting she possess at least limited telepathy.[1]
  • Precognitive: Ellie experiences precognitive nightmares and premonitions. It would appear that her precognition may have been limited to only foreseeing disasters, which may help explain her depressed and angst-ridden personality. She foresaw Genosha being destroyed,[1] Kitty Pryde loosing control of her powers and uncontrollably phasing down,[4] and the defeat of Selene's army.[6]


  • Ellie's real name and codename were revealed by Emma Frost in New X-Men #116.
    • After hearing her codename (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Kitty Pryde remarked, "Wow, we really have run out of names."
    • Ellie's codename was so poorly received, that many fan sites put her name on the Worst Superhero Names category.
