Early Life

Christine Palmer (Earth-616) from Nightcrawler Vol 3 1

Christine Palmer left her home in "an exclusive Midwestern suburb" against her father's wishes, intending to "make a new life without her father's money". She trained as a Nurse and accepted a position at Metro-General Hospital.[1]

Night Nurse

Her father later to New York City to try and convince her to return to her life as a debutante, threatening "if you don't come home by Thanksgiving, then don't come home at all!" Though she considers his offer, she elects to stay in New York and becomes a surgical nurse for Dr. William Sutton.[1] When Dr. Sutton's career ends in disaster she is forced to leave.[2]

Christine leaves New York to get away from memories of betrayal and ends up at the northeastern Sea-Cliff Manor as the private nurse for the physical rehabilitation of wheelchair-bound Derek Porter. The house has a creepy atmosphere and at night Chris can see lights signalling from the long-abandoned lighthouse to a mysterious person stalking the manor grounds. After numerous near-fatal accidents that seem to point to sabotage by the butler, Chris eventually forces Derek to reveal that he is responsible he was faking paralysis and taking advantage of his aunt's goodwill to use the location as a connection in a drug smuggling operation. He tries to push her over the cliff to silence her, but the butler comes to the rescue by pushing the abandoned wheelchair at Derek, knocking him off the cliff to his death in Christine's stead.[3]

Return to Metro-General

Christine ended up returning to Metropolitan General Hospital, where she first encountered Storm and Nightcrawler of the X-Men. It has recently been revealed in that her mother lives in Tucson, Arizona. [4]
