Heidi Franklin was an exotic dancer before being used by Genetech for their research in creating superhuman beings. Given powers and the name of Pretty Persuasions, she became a member of Psionex. The group's early early activities included battling the young heroes of the New Warriors. When Psionex eventually escaped Genetech, Pretty Persuasions returned to exotic dancing.
She later worked at a gentleman’s club frequented by Speed Demon.
When the Commission on Superhuman Activities persuaded the Thunderbolts to track down super-villains and recruit them to join the pro-registration side of the Superhuman Registration Act, Pretty Persuasions was among those who accepted the offer.
Psychic Pleasure Stimulation: Pretty Persuasions can psionically stimulate the pleasure centers in a person's brain. She can increase the erotic urges/sexual desires of others. With her power she can seduce and control other people, usually men. She can also render her targets effectively paralyzed.
Sexually-Charged Psionic Weapons: She can also create a variety of tangible psionic energy weapons from her own sexual urges, usually bondage themed weapons like whips or chains.
Heidi has a history of returning to her career as a dancer whenever Psionex has disbanded; thus she has above-average (though not superhuman) levels of agility and athletic ability maintained by such constant "exercise".
The experiments which gave Pretty Persuasions her powers damaged her mental health.
Pretty Persuasions is a disturbed woman who enjoys using her powers to cause others pain. She constantly curses in vile street language, and she has a nasty temper.
