White Queen

AKA: Emma Frost
Shaw's right hand woman and femme fatale of the Hellfire Club, Emma Frost is a powerful telepath whose psychic abilities rival those of Charles Xavier. When looks and mind games aren't enough though, her skin can take on a diamond-like form that makes her practically indestructible. As cold and calculating as her name suggests, the White Queen is one mutant you do not want as your enemy.

The knife-wielding Azazel can move about by teleporting from one place to another.

Unfortunately for the First Class, heroism seems to have skipped his generation.
