Dr. Cecilia Reyes was a character created by Scott Lobdell and Carlos Pacheco. She is a medical doctor in New York who has the mutant ability to project a bio-field around herself in order to protect her physically, but also enhance her durability.

According to the story, Reyes will serve as a mentor to the group of young mutants. Early rumors suggested that there would be appearances from James McAvoy reprising his role of Professor Xavier and Alexandra Shipp as Storm, but those rumors have yet to be confirmed.
