Everyone's got a role for me... Team leader. Cancer survivor. Cover story. Mutant. And I am all those things and then some. But what about how I define myself? What I want my life to be about? And allowing myself the chance to succeed or fail at it.
~ Firestar
S-sorry I missed your party, Patsy. I...I was finishing with my oncologist, and...and... ... ...I have cancer.
~ Angelica revealing she has cancer to Patsy.

Firestar (real name Angelica "Angel" Jones) is a fictional character and mutant superheroine in the Marvel Comics Universe.

Debuting in 1981 on the NBC animated television series Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends as a member of the X-Men, she has the ability to generate and manipulate microwave radiation, which allows her to generate intense heat and flames, and to fly. In the comics, first appearing in Uncanny X-Men #193, she has acted a solo hero and as a member of the Hellions, the New Warriors, the Avengers, and the X-Men.

She was created by Chris Claremont and John Romita Jr. and first appeared in the Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends animated series, and first comic appearance was in Uncanny X-Men # 193 in May of 1985.


Early Life

Bart Jones was a hard working employee of the nuclear industry, a job that kept him and his family moving around the country. Although he was widowed, he had help from his elderly mother to raise his thirteen-year-old daughter Angelica. The two would often disagree over how to treat Angelica, with her "Nana" trying to raise her spirits and convince her that she was special, and her "Daddy" trying to be more realistic. Moving around the country had been difficult on Nana's health and Angelica's ability to make friends.

After their last move, Angel found it more difficult than ever to make new friends. The local girls were initially spiteful, and became exceptionally jealous when the most popular boy in school began to show a romantic interest in Angel. Their taunting in the school cafeteria caused her to subconsciously over-heat her carton of chocolate milk, which subsequently exploded over a teacher and landed her in detention.

They later destroyed her entry for the school's ice-sculpting competition, the anger and pain of which caused Angel's powers to melt all the other entries. Terrified, she ran to a public telephone to try and speak to her Nana. However, Angel panicked when Nana didn't answer the phone, causing the telephone to melt in her hands. Scared, hurt, and confused, Angelica ran home to discover an ambulance there. It transpired that on the day that Angelica's mutant powers manifested, her Nana had passed away from a heart attack.

Angelica kept her powers a secret, for fear of being further outcast in a society that lived in fear of dangerous mutants. She chose to reveal her secret to her father after her Nana's funeral. In the snow covered cemetery Bart Jones refused to listen to his daughter's claims that she was "special" until she began to glow and the snow around her began to melt. Her father was just a working class man who had nothing to do with the political implications of mutants in society, but he was scared of what his little girl was growing into.

Angelica's mutant powers caused her presence to be detected by Professor X, who used the Cerebro to locate powerful mutants, and Emma Frost, who used the Multivac. Professor X and the X-Men attempted to pinpoint her location to recruit her into Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, but Frost reached Angelica before they could. Emma persuaded Angelica's father to send her to the Massachusetts Academy, so she could receive the special help she needed.


Angelica transferred to the Massachusetts Academy, and made great progress in developing the use of her powers under Frost's guidance. She remained unaware of Frost' allegiance to the Hellfire Club, and that she was the White Queen. Angelica was very grateful to Frost for her kindness, and she was given the code name "Firestar". Angelica was later forced by Empath, a mutant who could control emotions, to fall deeply in love with him so she would do anything he asked. Empath and the Hellions forced Firestar to participate in attacking the X-Men, whom Frost had taught Jones that they were their enemies.

Firestar and the Hellions battled the X-Men at the military base in Colorado, but were defeated and Thunderbird realized that he was wrong to want vengeance on Professor X. Once free of Empath's control, Firestar felt guilt and despair over having helped the Hellions, but was pleased and touched when Professor X offered her to become a member of his school. Despite the offer, Angelica refused out of loyalty to Frost, and returned to the academy.

Eventually, Frost intended to manipulate Firestar to become an assassin against her rival and Hellfire Club member, Selene. The White Queen began using her telepathic powers, an armlet to see into Angelica's dreams, and minions to push the girl into her arms. However, Angelica's bodyguard, Randall Chase, revealed the truth to Firestar before dying from his wounds by Frost's men. In retaliation, Firestar turned against Frost, destroying the academy's secret training center before returning to her father.

The New Warriors

Firestar was later contacted by Night Thrasher to join the New Warriors, a group of teenage superheroes with super powers. She joined them, and later developed a romantic relationship with Vance Astrovik, also known as Marvel Boy. After many months, Firestar learned that her powers were slowly causing her to become sterile, and she started using her powers more sparingly. During her tenure with the team, her father was almost killed by the Poison Memories and Vance had to serve time in prison for involuntary slaying his abusive father. Despite these events, Angelica reunited with Vance, and later proposed to him.

It was breast cancer. They got it out but, you know, just to be sure about everything I get the joy of chemo for a little while longer. It's a heck of a diet plan, let me tell you. Not much of a sleep aid, though. Hehh... I don't know what I'm doing either, Cassie. I really don't.
~ Angelica.
This afternoon, in a lot of ways, I buried my past. That means there's only one way to go now... it's time for Firestar to do the right thing -- it's time to face the future!.
~ Firestar
Adamantium, huh? Tough stuff! Even I can't melt it! But from what I understand, it makes a good -- conductor!
~ Firestar on Adamantium.



  • Her breast cancer was attributed to her powers.
  • She is the first Avenger to debut outside of the comics, appearing in Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends.
