Nixon's father, a policeman, was killed in a drive-by shooting. Now a teenager, she acted out by stealing, using drugs, and associating with criminals. She discovered her temporal stasis ability during a confrontation with a gang member, Hector, who was beating her friend. Time seemed to stop, but when she simply touched Hector's arm, time started again and he had a broken arm. Again Hector tried to get revenge of Kiden, this time using a gun. Freezing time Kiden avoided the bullet, sadly Cameron Palmer, a school worker at her school, was shot instead. Afterward, she ran away to protect herself and her family.
While on the streets, Nixon experimented with her powers while living with a group of homeless. She was visited by the ghost of her late father, telling her to save Cameron Palmer from committing suicide. After saving her former teacher Kiden tried to explain she was a mutant and that she never meant for Cameron to get her. The woman ignored Kiden thinking it was a joke.
Kiden's father visited Nixon yet again, telling the two they needed to save X-23, who had fled from her pimp, Zebra Daddy. While on the run with X-23, the trio also came across a young woman by the name of Catiana who was also fleeing for her life; only she was running from a mutant-hating mob. Zebra Daddy asked Felon, a lackey of his, to retrieve X-23. After searching for the girls however he began to have a change of heart and helped the girls instead.
A confrontation brought them all together and it was then that they eventually learn that it was Zebra Daddy himself who had shot Nick Nixon; Kiden's father. wasn't until Felon returned home that it was discovered Kiden's father's ghost who had been appearing to not only Kiden, but also Felon himself, was actually a mental projection of Felon's Younger brother.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Temporal Stasis: (aka Chronokinesis) Nixon can realign herself into a faster time-stream, shifting herself into a state in which time moves so slowly relative to her perception that it appears to stop, although she continues to operate normally. When she moves to this faster time-stream, seconds to everyone else are minutes to her. While in this state she does not need food or rest.
Relative to the rest of the world, however, she moves at impossible speeds. Because of that, when in this state she unwillingly applies an extreme amount of force to whatever she touches. A simple touch, therefore, has the same impact as a punch from a much stronger person. Ironically and unfortunately, she was initially only able to leave the faster time-stream when touching a person's skin, though she seems to have learned how to leave voluntarily, but touching a person's skin will still return her to the normal time-stream. Usually the shift is voluntary, but Nixon may unconsciously shift in stressful circumstances.
