Born in San Francisco, California to a wealthy, loving, and
caring mother. Jessica and her twin sister, Sara, lived a life of pure
happiness. Their father was never mentioned and seen once in a blue moon. Around Jessica and Sara's eleventh birthday, raging pain filled their bodies as
their mutant powers manifested. Fire molecules began to bond to their molecular
structure as both Sara and Jessica would soon come to realize that they could
conjure fire. Jessica had a strange iron count in her body; it was off the
charts. Jessica would come to realize that she could produce black iron blades.
Her mother feared for their safety and sent them into hiding at the Xavier
Institute. They're last name was changed to their mother's maiden name, Zander.
The girls grew up at the Xavier Institute together, but as they reached their
teenage years Sara became a bit of a problem child. Sara ended up leaving the Xavier
Institute to join the Acolytes,
a subgroup of Magneto's brotherhood of evil mutants. Jessica remained on good speaking terms with her
sister. In her spare time she tried to locate her brother, Brian, but there was
When Jessica was
twenty-five years old,
the X-men were able to locate Brian quite by accident when they freed a group of
mutants from a mutant testing facility. As news broke out that
Jessica was the daughter of Eric Lehnsherr (Magneto), she began finding family
all around her. She already knew
about her half siblings, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff.
the age of twenty-seven, Jessica was residing at the Xavier Institute when tragedy
struck. Her younger brother, Brian Zander, a formidable new X-men, had been
killed on a mission in an attempt to protect his teammates. Following a small
burial ceremony at the Xavier Institute, at which her father, Magneto, and
several half-siblings attended, her sister Sara briefly left the Xavier
Institute to grieve the loss of her brother. Sara had decided to return with her
father and half-siblings to the Savage Lands. Meanwhile, Jessica engulfed
herself in her security personnel work, climbing to the head of security
position alongside Katherine Pryde "Shadowcat."
age of twenty-three, her sister Sara returned to the Xavier Institute. Jessica recognized
that her sister remained cold and distant with the students training to be X-men
and wondered in part if it is due to Brian's death, as he transitioned rather
quickly from a student to an X-men upon graduating high school. Jessica hoped
that her sister would reconcile with her brother's death, having noticed her
sister had taken a particular interest in a student training in the Corsair
squad, Izaak Shaw "Six-Pack."
age of twenty-nine, her father brought her youngest sister, Iris, to the Xavier
Institute for protection from the splintered group the "Acolytes" - later known
as "Exalted X." Sara took an immediate dislike to the spoiled sister, Iris;
however, Jessica was excited to meet and bond with her new sister. While she
knew that Iris could never replace Brian, she still took full advantage of
getting to know her.
thirty-three, Sara discovered that her father, Magneto, had been hiding Brian at
his medical facility in the Savage Lands, keeping him in a induced coma. Sara
asked Izaak Shaw to help her rescue him. The mission was a success. However,
when Brian returned to the mansion, he was changed. He wasn't the same person he
had been prior to his presumed death. When Sara informed Jessica that Brian was
alive, Sara was overjoyed. However, she was incredibly angry to learn that Sara
had not informed her about the rescue mission.
age thirty-three, Jessica is head of the security program at the Xavier Institute,
installing new technology to make the campus safe for its residents.
