Blink Return It's found that Blink didn't die, but she was trapped in a dimension slightly separate from her own reality. Her screams of pain were heard by Selene. When Selene decided to form her Inner Circle, Blink was one of the first she recruited. Having taken a ship out to sea to the spot where Blink had fought Harvest, Selene reached into the air. Her hand disappeared. She then pulled Blink out of nowhere, still wearing the same clothes that the Phalanx had wrapped her in. She had joined Selene's Inner Circle; a personal army of deadly mutants who had either been raised from the dead or had deathly powers. Alongside Caliban, Eli Bard , Mortis, Senyaka and Wither she had been groomed into a teleporting mutant who uses her powers to kill. Blink transported the attack on Utopia (the X-Men's off-shore base in San Francisco Bay), seemingly with former members of the Hellfire Club as their intended target. Having mastered her teleportational powers she led Cypher & the Hellions, along with dozens of other resurrected heroes & villains. Gently, Selene told Blink that Emma Frost had heard her screams, and let her die. It seemed to connect with Blink's memory of Frost holding Husk back, preventing her from rushing to Blink's aid. Disoriented and frightened, Blink believe Selene. After only a few weeks of being under Selene's tutelage, Blink had begun to use her powers to kill. Her determination and strength had grown incredibly, so she was capable of leading Selene's army to attack the X-Men. Blink and the Inner Circle were dispatched by Selene to look for the mystical Knife in Utopia, in order for Selene to complete her ritual into becoming a goddess. When Blink teleported them to Utopia, she was immediately recognized by Emma Frost. During the fight that was going on, Blink and Senyaha were fighting Angel. Senyaka ensnaring him with his coils and Blink using her spears to obliterate his wings. After successfully finding the knife Blink teleports them to Selen with a captured Warpath. Blink was shown among the other Inner Circle watching Selene kill Eli Brad with the Knife. She and Thunderbird were ordered to keep an eye on Warpath, but failed when Vanisher came and saved him. When Selene finally achieved her goal into becoming a goddess, she orders her Inner Circle to get her more souls to absorb, in which Blink teleports all the zombie mutants and former mutants to Genosha. Blink and Domino fight each other in the final battle Genosha. Domino tries to shoot at Blink, but she easily avoids her shots because of using her teleportation powers. Vanisher plucks Blink out of teleportation and holds her while Angel slashes her with his wings. Blink then flees Genosha with Mortis.

The origins of the young mutant called Blink stretch back to the Victorian era and the vast machinations of the immortal mutant Apocalypse. After leaving Egypt, Apocalypse traveled the world, spawning innumerable offspring. The descendants of Apocalypse called themselves Clan Akkaba and, through the ages, challenged each other in contests to attain the title of “fittest” according to Apocalypse’s beliefs. The fates of this often contentious group were guided by Apocalypse’s servant Ozymandias. After a conflict with Dracula left the Clan Akkaba nearly destroyed, Ozymandias decided to revitalize the Clan himself. He hired a prostitute called Miss Ferguson to have intimate relations with the catatonic Fredrick Slade, one of the only surviving members of Clan Akkaba. Fredrick possessed a form of teleportation which he passed on to his great-great granddaughter, Clarice Ferguson. Clarice Ferguson was a young, inexperienced mutant who was targeted as a member of the next generation of mutants by the Phalanx. The technological alien race couldn't absorb mutants, and had decided to kidnap and experiment on young mutants. They stole Professor Xavier's list of new mutants, which included Clarice. Along with Husk, M, and Skin (who would become founding members of Generation X) she was entombed within the Phalanx as a test subject on the assimilation of mutant tissue. Little has been revealed about Clarice’s early life. Her powers manifested when she was a teenager and did so quite tragically. When she first used her powers, she was knocked unconscious. When she awoke, she found herself in a pool of blood. At the time, she vowed to never use her powers against another living being again.
