Hepzibah (Marvel)
Real Name:
Search for 'Hepzibah (Marvel)' on Amazon

Hepzibah possesses enhanced agility, speed, and reflexes, retractable claws, hyper-keen senses, and night vision. Mephitisoids also possess the ability to generate mind-altering pheromones.

Hepzibah is a brilliant natural athlete and skilled hand-to-hand combatant. She is also an expert marksman, and is knowledgeable in the operation of a wide variety of ship-sized weaponry.

Hepzibah was born on the planet Tryl'sart, while under Shi'ar Imperial Rule. She had also spent some time in the prison on the planet Alsibar, where she met Corsair (Christopher Summers) for the first time.

While Corsair was imprisoned by the authority of the then Shi'ar Emperor D'Ken, brother of Deathbird and Lilandra of the Royal House of Neramani, Hepzibah, with the help of several other prisoners who would later form the Starjammers (i.e., Raza Longknife and Ch'od), aided Corsair in their mutual escape from Shi'ar prison. Corsair won the respect of the trio (becoming their leader) and eventually the heart of Hepzibah, becoming her lover.

Hepzibah and the Starjammers teamed up with X-Men on multiple occasions. In one such occurrence, Hepzibah and the Starjammers helped the New Mutants neutralize the threat of Magus. Hepzibah also aided the Hulk in rescuing some of the Hulk's people from the alien forces of Troyjan. The Silver Surfer personally saved her life, an incident which led her to believe she simply intimidated the forces threatening her.

Recently, after Corsair reunited with his son Havok and the Starjammers participated in a conflict between Lilandra's and D'Ken's forces, Corsair was killed by his own son Vulcan. Hepzibah raided the X-Men's stolen Shi'ar ship's weapons locker and was ready to take vengeance on Vulcan. However, she was forced to return with the repowered Professor Xavier, Warpath, Darwin, and Nightcrawler when Lilandra, hoping to save her beloved Xavier from death and protect some of the X-Men (believing that the battle was not going well) locked the ship into a jump course for Earth. Consequently, Hepzibah, separated from her fellow Starjammers, is currently residing with the X-Men on Earth, with no foreseeable way to return to Shi'ar space to help the Starjammers and Lilandra continue to fight Vulcan.

Since she is stuck on Earth and has nowhere else to go, Hepzibah has joined Professor X's team of X-Men. She and Warpath have already created a bond of sorts, with Hepzibah remarking that his presence has helped her through her mourning of Corsair. In Uncanny X-Men #488, she is seen in an altered standard X-Uniform and entering the Morlock Tunnels alongide Warpath, Storm, and Caliban.

When S.W.O.R.D. director Henry Gyrich was deporting aliens from Earth, Hepzibah was on the list. However she was saved from that when Abigail Brand gets him removed and rescinds the order.

Hepzibah reunited with Corsair and returned to the Starjammers.

Corsair could not pronounce her real name and named her Hepzibah. Hepzibah means "my delight is in her" in Hebrew. She was a queen and the mother of Manasseh in the Old Testament. A possible source for the character's name is from Walt Kelly's Pogo comic strip. Mam'zelle Hepzibah was a sultry female skunk with a heavy French accent.
