Emma Frost

Emma Grace Frost is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #129 (January 1980), and was created by writer Chris Claremont and artist/co-writer John Byrne.

An urbane, mutant telepath with a well-noted dry wit initially known as the White Queen (complete with revealing white attire for which she is known), Frost has changed from one of the X-Men's most dangerous foes to one of its most central members.

The character was named IGN Comic's "Hottest Comic Book Babe" in 2005, ranked #21 on IGN Comic's "Top 25 X-Men" in 2006, placed #30 as Marvel's highest ranking female on Empire's Top 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters in 2008 and took 69th place on Wizard’s 200 Greatest Characters of All Time List in 2008, ranking ahead of other X-Men with more extensive histories.

Actress Tahyna Tozzi portrays a younger version of Emma Frost in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Actress January Jones will portray the character in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class.
