In the year 2018 Blink rescues mutants from Trask Industries mutant holding facility Camp X-Ray.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Blink met up with fellow survivors Lucas Bishop, Warpath, Iceman, Kitty Pryde, Colossus and Sunspot. They devised a way for them to survive; Warpath detected the Sentinels and alerted Kitty and Bishop. While the mutants fought the Sentinels, Kitty sent Bishop's consciousness back a few days ago to warn them of the attack. This continued as the group travelled the world. They eventually met up with Charles Xavier, Erik Lehnsherr, Wolverine and Storm in China. As Kitty sent Logan back in time, she and the other X-Men prepared for the Sentinel invasion. Warpath detected twelve Sentinel ships coming and they prepared to fight. Storm and Magneto destroyed most of them but dozens still remained. After Magneto secured the vault, Blink teleported him inside it. The Sentinels shot at her but she created portals to redirect the blasts at other Sentinels. However, she was overwhelmed and stabbed multiple times.

The Gifted Timeline

The Gifted

Clarice spent her early teenage years in a foster home for mutant kids who couldn't pass as humans. The couple who ran the home, Carl and Denise, kept the kids safe by hiding them. She was there for a couple years until she was 15, when she finally grew tired of hiding and decided to leave.

Two years prior to the beginning of the series, Clarice was living in Athens, Georgia working as a waitress. One day, while she was on a date, she and her partner were approached by a group of Purifiers bearing giant white crosses on their clothes. The Purifiers vandalized her car with the word "mutie" on and harassed her. Her date did nothing to help and just told her to run as the Purifiers burned the car. Clarice ran and escaped through a portal she opened.


Blink was on the run from the Atlanta police after successfully escaping the mutant detention facility. After being cornered in an alley, she was able to use her mutant ability to create a portal and transport herself to safety. ThunderbirdEclipse, and Polaris having heard of her escape track her down through Thunderbird's ability of foresight. While he has mild difficulty finding due to her "moving strangely", through her teleporting abilities he soon finds her taking refuge in an abandoned workshop. Lorna and Marcos approach her and attempt to introduce themselves to her. Panicking, she throws whatever is in front of her - a coffee maker followed by a cup - but Marcos manages to eventually calm her down. They attempt to gain her trust by explaining that they were mutants just like her with Polaris demonstrating her control over magnetism by yanking the steel stapler out of Blink's hand, proving their mutant abilities. Eclipse and Polaris then introduced themselves. Marcos tried to assure her that they had been in the same place as her and if she went with them, they will get her a place to stay. However, their introductory meeting was disrupted as the police surrounded the abandoned workshop they were hiding in. Blink, Polaris and Eclipse joined Thunderbird at the main room.

After killing the lights, Polaris and Thunderbird took cover on the wall, observing the police as they pulled up. Polaris stepped out and sent out a wave of energy so powerful that it took out the police cruisers. When the police started firing Blink hid behind a wall and Polaris took cover behind the wall, as she instructed Thunderbird to find them a way out while she held off law enforcement. Polaris used her abilities once more to disable the cops and halt the firing bullets. With the police applying pressure, Eclipse came to Polaris' rescue, emitting a blinding light from his hands, which in return both stunned the police and provided Polaris with the opportunity to escape as well as Blink. As Polaris, Eclipse, Thunderbird, and Blink exited the building and made their way back to the getaway vehicle, despite their efforts to take down the police by using their mutant abilities, a cop appeared behind them and shot Eclipse in the arm. Blink managed to get inside the getaway vehicle, soon followed by Thunderbird who was dragging Eclipse inside the car so he wouldn't run after a captured Polaris.

Later on, Clarice arrived at the Mutant Underground Headquarters, where she sat down with Sage. Sage welcomed her to the mutant facility, and then asked her if she should contact anyone, perhaps family, to which Clarice said it was complicated. Sage then informed her that she would stay with them at the headquarters until they figured out where they would relocate her. After getting settled in, Clarice went to thank Marcos for saving her, especially that he lost his girlfriend in the process. Marcos was trying to find a way to rescue Lorna, and though he thought Blink’s ability to create portals could help, she explained that in order to teleport herself, she would've had to have been in the place before. Marcos didn't understand, so Blink illustrated it by using a toy to teleport it through the roof, a place she hadn't seen before. When it came out of the roof, it was cut in half.

The conversation was interrupted when Marcos received a call from Reed Strucker. Clarice overheard Marcos meeting someone about helping a family. She kept her mouth shut, but after an hour had passed and he hadn't returned, trusting her judgment to do right by Lorna, she informed John about the meeting he attended alone. However, Clarice didn't know how they would track him down, but John reassured her that he managed to track her down, so he could also track down Marcos.

Blink and Thunderbird successfully tracked them all down, Eclipse and the Struckers took their cue from Thunderbird to run. The seven of them sprinted through the warehouse, as Sentinel Services unleashed their mutant-hunting robots, the sentinels. Eclipse and Lauren were able to keep them behind using their mutant abilities while Blink created a portal for them all to retreat through. Everyone, except Andy and Reed, went through the portal. With Andy hyper-focused on destroying the sentinels, he telepathically forced them to explode before joining the others through the portal. Blink couldn't hold the portal open for much longer, but while Reed was waiting for his son to enter the portal, he is shot in the leg before he can enter the portal after Andy, as Blink had to shut the portal because it was too for much her to bear. Reed was left for capture on the other side, as Blink collapsed on the other side.


As Clarice started to regain consciousness, Marcos held up her head as he tried to get her to respond. Having seemingly overstretched her powers combined with the bullet wound Clarice appeared to be suffering from some kind of reaction to holding her portal open for such an extensive amount of time and traveling as far as they did. Marcos placed Clarice on a bench by the stairs as the Struckers began panicking about going back for Reed Andy in particular urges them to go back Marcos tells Andy that his father was planning to help him get his girlfriend, Lorna, out of jail, but as much as he wanted Reed there, they can't think of that right now as saving Clarice was top priority at the moment.

Clarice's condition however wasn’t improving and in fact growing increasingly unstable. Lauren called Marcos and John back down. Caitlin, being a nurse, diagnosed Clarice as being in respiratory distress and her temperature spiking, which means she needed medical attention that only a hospital can provide. The Long-distance leap took a lot of energy out of her. Upon further examination, Clarice noted that Clarice's heart rate was faster than normal. Clarice then began convulsing causing her powers to become unstable. Caitlin explained that without the right medication, Clarice ran the risk of dying. As Clarice went into shock, her powers started to uncontrollably manifest, causing her to involuntarily open a portal to stretch of road where a truck headed straight for them. As the truck tried to avoid them, it skid out of control, resulting in the truck being sliced in half. The back half unfortunately made its way through the portal, prompting everyone to take cover.

After helping the others, John carried Clarice to a table in the back of the room by the vault. Marcos asked Caitlin how Clarice is she able to create a portals if she over overexerted herself. Caitlin admitted however that she wasn’t an expert in the field of mutant physiology. Clarice suddenly then started convulsing again as a new portal emergeed to the same road as before. Howver this time civilians with loaded rifles sat on the other side of the portal looking in. Seeing this, Marcos prepareed for a fight. However, John grabbed his wrist and urged him to show restraint as they aren't to hurt innocent bystanders. Lauren then walked in front of them and managed to close the portal using her shields, thus preventing any possible altercation. This also shut down Clarice's powers as she fell unconscious again. Marcos and Caitlin then set forth a plan to raid the hospital for the medication to treat Clarice while Lauren agreed to stay behind and close any other future potential portals.

With Marcos and Caitlin out to recover the medicine from a nearby hospital, John stays behind to watch over Clarice, as well as Andy and Lauren. During the time John explained Clarice history and the difficulty she had due to her physical mutations keeping her from getting a job and forcing her to resort to crime. At that moment Clarice became uneasy, as sweat coated her face as her powers began to manifest yet again to the same road. John ordered Sonya to get everyone to safety as he ran to the portal. This time, numerous civilians and officers stand on the other side prepared to confront the mutants. Lauren struggled to get the portal to close, as Clarice was getting restless on the table but eventually managed to close it which caused Clarice to become stabilized for the moment again.

John, Sonya, Lauren and Andy gathered around Clarice as her condition worsened. John wanted told Sonya he wanted to begin evacuation as Clarice open portals became more sporadic however Sonya objected to the notion of abandoning the Underground as she would rather move Clarice. John called out to Clarice as another portal opened but on a larger scale. With S.W.A.T closing in, the Underground was left with no other choice but to fend them off. As one of the officers enter the portal with his weapon drawn, John disarmed him of his firearm and then tossed him back into the other side of the portal. Just as the rest of the S.W.A.T team prepared to open fire, Andy ran out in front and in a great display of power, sent the officers flying backward into the air, as well as Clarice, who was knocked to the floor and fell unconscious, causing the portal to close. However, after the closing of that single portal, many more portals emerged in its wake, that scattered throughout Headquarters, prompting all the mutants to evacuate while John remained at her side.

Fortunately at this time Caitlin and Marcos finally returnsed with the medicine and raceed inside Headquarters to treat Clarice. Caitlin entered to find the building in complete chaos. Near her a portal which led o Clarice and John opened up which she jumped through. Caitlin then injected Clarice with the medication they had stolen from the hospital to stabilize her potassium levels. Fortunately, it seemed all of their efforts paid off as the portals desisted and the Underground was left intact. Clarice woke up later that night to find the Underground in disarray. She asked if everyone was okay with John informing her that despite some destroyed furniture, everyone was safe with Clarice joking about HQ needing a remodeling anyways. John then asksed her about the road that Clarice kept portaling to questioning if it held any significance to her, but Clarice claimed that she didnt remember. Skeptical of her response, John only replied that they would talk about it later.
