Character Highlights

Blink had a short comic which started in the Phalanx Covenant storyline. She was in a techno-organic prison along with Skin, M, Husk and a young man named Gregor. Blink was terrified of the Phalanx, and was consoled by Husk, who her they wouldsoon be rescued by the X-Men. Gregor tells them how the Phalanx cannot assimilate mutants into their collective intelligence, so they are experimenting with the young mutants to learn how they might be able to do it. Their Phalanx captor, Harvest opens a portal to tell them that hope is futile, and that the Phalanx will not rest until all organic life, Human and Mutant, is culled from the face of the Earth. Blink attacks Harvest, forgetting the the first time she used her mutant ability, when she woke up several hours later in a pool of blood and vowed never to use her power against another living being. She uses her "blink" to injure Harvest. Harvest escapes after Blink is distracted by Gregor. They start talking about their options. They all want to escape, secept for Gregor, who thinks they would be safer if they didn't. M, who was in a comatose state, awakens and tells the group that they must escape from "this, the first of many prisons." She reveals that Gregor is a Phalanx spy and while puts out of commission. M creates a way for them to escape from their prison located in the hull of a large ship. As they try to escape, the Phalanx catch up to them and Blink starts being pulled apart by them her. Husk tells her that her only hope is to use her mutant power to free herself. Blink is too terrified and thinks she can't do it and starts to panic and "blinks" the Phalanx to pieces and is saved by M. Harvest returns, saying we will kill them, then every other mutant and human who resists being assimilated into the Phalanx collective. Just then, Sabretooth arrives and slashes several of Harvest's arms off, which doesn't slow Harvest down. Then Banshee and Synch show up to help, and with Synch 'synching' with Banshee, Harvest seems to be defeated. Then Harvest reforms, and seems to be undefeatable. Blink, realizing they cannot escape from the Phalanx, "blinks" her friends into the bay. Then she blinks Harvest and the ship into pieces, becoming trapped in her own displacement field. Having never returned from the "blink", she wass presumed to have died from it. Selene found Blink stuck in another realm and rescues her. Selene then tells Blink that Emma Frost did nothing to rescue her and convinces her to join her new Inner Circle.
