After the destruction of Genosha, Beast and Jean Grey find Emma alive with a secondary mutation that allows her to transform her skin into a diamond. She's also holding the dead body of Ellie Phimister and asks the rescue team to bring her back to life, but the girl has been dead for a while, they say. After having a "Road to Damascus" moment, she joins the X-Men and subdues Nova for the time being by snapping her neck. She claims to Scott that she only returned for her Louis Vuitton, however.
