Extensive Definition

Spoilsport is a fictional mutant character in the Marvel Comics Universe. 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 mercenary Paladin 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.
When the mentally ill Scarlet Witch depowered 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.
