Noriko Ashida was born in Tokyo but ran away from home when she was thirteen after her powers manifested; she claimed her father didn’t believe in mutants. Afterwards, she lived homeless on the streets of New York until she went up to the Xavier Institute gates, only to be turned away Hellion. Elixir gathered a group to find Nori, seeing her buying drugs&assuming that was what caused her to go out of control. However, it was the other way around; without the pills, Ashida went berzerk, but the gang managed to subdue her long enough for Beast to design gauntlets that could regulate her absorption of ambient electricity. Ashida was assigned to the New Mutants squad led by Mirage&reluctantly shared a room with Dust. Surge is 5’7”, weighs 137 lbs, and is a Beta mutant who can sap electricity at all times ranging from static&outlets, so she must wear specifically-designed gauntlets to regulate it. She had to discharge the energy through lightning blasts from her body; otherwise, the build-up would cause her mind to race. In addition, she could channel energy into bursts of speed, making her [apparently] able to run at several hundred miles per hour for a couple of hours.
