Tarot was a member of the original Hellions, of French origin. Unlike some of the more mean-spirited Hellions (namely Empath, and Roulette), Tarot was generally good-natured. It was revealed by Mirage's psychic abilities that Tarot was in fact in love with one of the New Mutants, probably Cypher or Sunspot.

She was ostensibly killed by Sentinels under the command of Trevor Fitzroy.[1]

Tarot reappeared later as a member of the second Hellions team. It appears her resurrection was somehow bound to King Bedlam, though this was never fully explained.[2]

Hellions (Earth-616)

Hellions resurrected.

On M-Day she lost her mutant powers along with King Bedlam.[3] Tarot then died again at some point after the Decimation.

Her death was short-lived as she, along with all other deceased Hellions, were resurrected by Selene and Eli Bard using the Transmode virus. She was able to use her powers on that occasion, although other depowered mutants resurrected by Eli Bard could not.[4]

Powers

Pre-resurrection

Precognition: Tarot is able to foresee the events of her's or other's futures with the combination of her mutant powers and the use of her tarot cards.

Postcognition: Tarot was also able to see past event with the combined use of her mutant powers and her tarot cards.

Psionic Will-Based Constructs: Tarot could materialize and animate tangible images of the 2-D avatars/images on her tarot cards. Once materialized they are completely under her mental control and do her bidding. Able to enter battle for her, protect her or even aid her in flight. Not invincible but actually Energy/Will based constructs, if hit with enough force whether physical or psionic they would disperse.

Flight: Through use of her animate tarot cards she would grant flight. This was done by standing atop any of her flying cards and she would be lifted into the air.

Post-resurrection

When Tarot re-emerged from her apparent resurrection she could use her mutant powers more finely. More in tune with her powers she was now able to assume the traits of the images on her tarot cards. Giving her a number of increased attributes of the card she was currently using. Her abilities were only increased when the cards were in use.

Metamorphic/ Power Mimicry: Tarot could physically assume the strengths and characteristics of the avatars on her tarot cards. In effect allowing her to become more effective in physical combat. Additionally she could wield the weapons and armor that her tarot cards were equipped with. Each skill was dependent on the card that she was using at the time

  • Death Touch: The death card could potentially have a death touch and as a result she would too.
  • Flight: Previously she could ride her tarot cards once animated, it's assumed she could flight if the appropriate card was selected and she mimicked the power.
  • Special Abilities: Tarot is skilled and received training in the use of the mystical tarot cards. As such she has finely tune this skill to a pin-point accuracy.
  • Special Equipment: Tarot constantly keeps a deck of tarot cards with her. Most usually the deck her grandmother gave to her.
  • Superhuman Durability: Tarot was more durable able to take more damage before she was.
  • Superhuman Speed: Capable of moving and running faster than the finest athlete.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Tarot can exert herself at peak capacity for several hours before fatigue impairs her.
  • Superhuman Strength: Tarot had increased levels of strength to what level were never measured.

Abilities

Highly skilled in divining through the reading of tarot cards.



Equipment

A pack of tarot cards.

  • The full details of Tarot's living and dying were not disclosed. During her time with the second Hellions, it was implied that Tarot survived Fitzroy's assault due to King Bedlam's brain wave abilities, and a link he previously established with her. It was further implied that Tarot now lived or died at the whim of King Bedlam.
  • If true, this would explain Tarot's behind-the-scenes death after the Decimation. She and King Bedlam both lost their powers on M-Day, so if Bedlam's power was keeping her alive, then Tarot would have perished when he was decimated.
