Blink (Marvel)(Age of Apocalypse)
Real Name: Clarice Ferguson
Search for 'Blink (Marvel)(Age of Apocalypse)' on Amazon

Teleportation, disruption via partial teleportation.

In the Age of Apocalypse storyline, Professor X was killed years before he ever formed the X-Men. An alternate reality unfolded into which the 5,000-year old super mutant Apocalypse gained control of North America and implemented a genocide campaign against regular humans.

Clarise Ferguson was born in Cartusia, Bahamas. Her purple skin complexion revealed her to be a mutant at birth. Her parents accepted this fact but feared their daughter would not be accepted by the local population. When Clarice was four, the Fergusons moved to Miami, Florida, United States. They hoped Miami would be home to a mutant population where an older Clarice would be able to socialize.

Clarice was a child when Apocalypse took over Miami. Blink was discovered by one of Apocalypse's scientists, Dark Beast, who experimented on her, refining her powers (thus explaining the differences in the abilities of the regular Marvel Universe Blink and her Age of Apocalypse counterpart).

However, Sabretooth and Weapon X, of the resistance force, the X-Men, raided Beast's laboratories and rescued Blink. She then became the adopted daughter of Sabretooth (This relationship may explain why the Age of Apocalypse version of Sabretooth is much less villainous than the regular Marvel Universe version).

Blink grew into adulthood with the X-Men. She was impulsive and not always willing to follow orders, but became an important X-Man.

Eventually, the X-Men encountered the time traveling X-Man Bishop, who set a course of events that prevented the death of Professor X, eliminating the Age of Apocalypse reality.

Before it ended, however, Blink was mysteriously transported to a strange desert plateau, where she met a group of other mutants from various realities who had been unstuck in time. A cosmic monitor called the Timebroker explained that each had become "unstuck" in reality and their new mission was to visit various parallel worlds and "correct wrongs."

Blink became the leader of this group of Exiles and has formed a relationship with her teammate Mimic. They went to many worlds, fighting the Hulk, Galactus, Weapon X, Mojo, and the Vi-Locks. On the world where the Legacy Virus was taking over, Blink was infected by it. She was later cured, however. They were celebrating when the Timebroker appeared, saying that Blink was going home. She was replaced by Magik. She landed in Sabretooth’s reality and helped him destroy Sentinels. but then, David Richards hijacked her teleporting ability and made her kill dozens of humans. Blink was scarred by the experience, and would have kept going had Sabretooth not saved her. She then came back to the exiles after Sunfire died. For the next mission, they fought Hyperion and Weapon X. While fighting Hyperion, Blink teleported Hyperion's laser attack back at him. Then, Gambit blew himself and Hyperion up, thus completing the mission. Then, she was replaced by Mystique on one of the next missions, but she escaped. When the Exiles raided Panoptichron to rebel against the Timebroker, she helped defeat the resurrected Hyperion by teleporting a lot of sand into him. She recently lost Mimic when his body withered away due to possession by Proteus.

Originally a throwaway character; now a star heroine. From Earth-295 (the Age of Apocalypse earth).
