Born in Las Vegas, Nevada, Danielle Forte was selected for her impressive telekinetic abilities to join the Femme Fatales, a group of super-powered, female criminals.[1]

The most notable use of her powers was when Mindblast lifted an airplane that Spider-Man was on, ready to smash it to the ground. Spider-Man dodged her attack, and eventually knocked her out with a piece of the airplane. She went on to serve with the Femme Fatales, also joining Superia's Femizons for a short while.[2]

Mindblast was one of the few mutants left after Decimation and she allied with Hammerhead in his super-villain army.[3]

At some point, Mindblast and fellow Femme Fetale, Bloodlust, were imprisoned in the S.H.I.E.L.D.-run, super-villain prison of Pleasant Hill. When the prisoners staged a takeover, Mindblast and Bloodlust were transformed into copies of Director Maria Hill by the living Cosmic Cube, Kobik, in order to trick the Avengers and Avengers Unity Division into leaving Pleasant Hill. The plan failed, and when the two villains tried to explain themselves, Kobik teleported them away.[4][5]

Mindblast and the Femme Fatales were later joined by Viper and Sapphire Styx in Madripoor to set up the X-Men, Domino, and Psylocke when they traveled to Madripoor to find clues in Wolverine's disappearance. Mindblast mentally disguised herself as Magneto and successfully lured the X-Men and their allies into the trap. She knocked out Storm and fought off Psylocke until she was subdued by Sapphire Styx.[6]

Powers

  • Telekinesis: Danielle has demonstrated telekinetic abilities. She can use them to fly and produce tractor beams that can move over 500 tons; however, her power was limited to a single beam.[1]
  • Technological Enhancements: Mindblast has had cybernetic implants,[7] the full extent of which are presently unknown; however, at the very least they enhance her mental capabilities, allowing for telepathy, as well as protect her from telepathic attacks or intrusions, shield her from other forms of mental influence, grant her the ability to create convincing psychic illusions, and provide for sophisticated mind control.[8]
