Madelyne Pryor is the twin sister of Firebird (although her hair and fire powers are red instead of green). She used her metamutant powers to become the Red Queen and then fell in love with Apollo while Firebird was in a coma. Red Queen’s romance was cut short when she was captured by the villainous Alice Arcade and forced to fight the White Queen to the death on a giant chessboard, and lost the battle and her life.
Red Queen is a metamutant with pyrokinetic powers that allow her to create and control fire with her mind. She also possesses the telepathic power to sense a person's most burning desire and then mentally compell them to act on it.
