Plague (Earth-616) from Uncanny X-Men Vol 1 170

Plague

Plague was a mutant who had the ability to magnify and spread disease. As a Morlock, she served Callisto loyally. Plague's touch was potent enough to make Kitty Pryde fatally ill even in her intangible state.[1]

Plague was present during the massacre of the Morlocks by the Marauders and was terrorized by Sabretooth, who was unaware of her ablilites. One touch and Creed was weakened and might have died if not for his healing factor. Apocalypse arrived and saved Plague from the massacre, stating that he had plans for her to serve him as the Horseman Pestilence.[2]

After being transformed into Pestilence, Plague, War, and Famine battled X-Factor in Central Park and were defeated by Iceman.[3] After the fourth Horseman, Death, was revealed, Apocalypse had the Horsemen battle each other, to find the leader and Death beat them all.[4]

After Apocalypse teleported X-Factor on his Celestial Ship, they battled the Horsemen again and, after their defeat, the Horsemen were sent into Manhattan to incite chaos. X-Factor and the Power Pack battled the Horsemen and Lightspeed knocked Plague off her flying steed, whereupon she fell to her death.[5]

Powers

Virus Touch: Plague can produce a bio-hazardous agent from her body that acts as a crippling virus in the bodies of other people. The virus is incredibly potent -- even glancing contact with her skin or a few molecules of the virus clinging to Kitty Pryde's intangible form were enough to cause infection. The virus causes physical weakness, fainting, nausea, fever, and delirium. It can be treated, but will otherwise be lethal to anyone infected.[6][7]
