In X-Statix #13, Peter Milligan had planned to use Diana, Princess of Wales in a storyline which featured her returning from the dead as a mutant superhero. News of this leaked out to the media and there followed a series of objections, most notably from the BritishtabloidnewspaperThe Daily Mail. Quesada and Marvel announced that they would alter the character of Princess Diana, replacing her with a fictional pop star, Henrietta Hunter (still physically resembling Diana, but with black hair and a different hairdo).
She was a mutant with empathic powers, the ability to read and feel the emotions of others. She could sense the pain of others. After the first time she returned from the dead, she not only regained her empathic abilities, but also increased athletic prowess and the ability to communicate with ghostly spirits. Following her second death, Henrietta once again returned in a zombie-like form. In this form, she, like other zombies, did not appear to require food or oxygen to survive. She also appeared to be able to cause unlikely events to happen that would cause death to those who sung her song. It is unknown whether she retained any of her previous powers, as she did not display any as a corpse.
