X-Men Alpha: A New world! A New Beginning!
This issue came only a few month after the demise of our Clarice, and
it intoduced us all to the world without Xavier. More importantly to us
Blink fans, however, was the reintroduction of our heroine! Blink is now her
official X-codename, she has a green costume complete with gloves and a

'darts' for lack of a better term, are slender metal needles, pointed at both
ends, which can be used as throwing weapons, or in hand-to-hand. Blink's
costume has a quiver in which she carries the darts.

now cause material to reappear in set places, as well as opening teleportation
portals. In addition to her original ability to destroy objects, Blink can
charge her darts a la Gambit, causing whatever she strikes with them to be

see the violence of her teammates. Her part is small in this issue, but it
will grow in significance later...
