Maybe a Marvel fan can help me out here, I find myself in a unique position of needing help with a character.
I recently got interested in learning more about the character of Hope Summers, the so-called Mutant Messiah. I'm considering using her as part of an upcoming project, but I wanted to do a little more about her.
From what I've read her history is that she was the first mutant born after M-Day, the day Wanda Maximoff said "No More Mutants". She was apparently some prophesied child meant to "light their darkest hour" or some such, and as a result, different factions were interested in her. Eventually, Cable took her to his own future to raise her as his own daughter and prepare her for her life. We saw her twice after, once as a 10 year old kid being trained by Cable, and once more in the present where she's in her mid-to-late teens.
She gets involved in some weird shenanigans with people trying to kill her (the whole "messiah" bit), something weird called the "Five Lights", and ultimately has her biggest role in Avengers vs X-Men, when the Phoenix Force comes to Earth, and instead of acting like a bunch of heroes, Cyclops basically picks a fight with the Avengers and they start brawling over Hope's fate, never really asking her what she wants. Eventually she gets some training from people like Iron Fist and Spider-Man, and is able to draw the Phoenix Force to her, using it to not only undo most of the damage of the last few days, but to restart the mutant population, fulfilling her "messiah" destiny by bringing about the return of mutants worldwide.
Since then she's done . . . not much, aside from a few token appearances.
She's displayed a few one-off abilities, but her primary power appears to be power duplication. From what I can tell, she can copy the powers of any mutant within a certain range of her, though if she tries to use too many powers at once, she experiences some kind of power burnout. Beyond that, she's trained in survival, tracking, and various types of combat. Like her adoptive father Cable, she carries guns with her "just in case". It's unknown right now if she can copy non-mutant superpowers.
All of this I was able to find out with a little searching on the web.
What I HAVEN'T been able to find out is what her personality was suppose to be. Plenty of write-ups about her history and her abilities, but her personality is something no one apparently wanted to write down on paper. Does she have one?
