Marvel ComicsUniverse. Her first appearance was in "Generation X #53".
Fictional character biography
Spoilsport was born an advanced generation mutant and is the younger sister to the mutant
Dragonwing. She became a member of the Rising Sons with her brother, Nightwind, Jet-Black, the Sign and Tough Love. The Rising Sun were hired to protect a man named Noy, who had in his possession a sword that was used to kill Adrienne Frost's husband.
Adrienne wanted the sword for herself and sent the
mercenaryPaladin to get it, but the Rising Sons fought him off and left him for dead. Paladin returned alongside Generation X members Jubilee, Skin, Chamber, Synch and Husk.
Even though Spoilsport seemed rather flighty and superficial, she was an avid warrior. She attacked and bested Paladin, but was later defeated by Jubilee and Skin.
mentally ill Scarlet Witchdepowered over 90% of the world's mutant population on M-Day, Spoilsport was among the many who lost her powers. This fact was confirmed in "New Avengers #18".
Powers and abilities
Spoilsport is a mutant with the ability to defy gravity when skating on her inline skates. She can zoom at high speeds up walls and on ceilings without any problem, and frequently uses surprise and her agility to take her opponents down quickly.
