Gin Genie (Rebecca "Beckah" Parker) is a fictional mutant superhero in the Marvel Universe. She was created by Peter Milligan and Mike Allred, and her first appearance was in X-Force #116 (July 2001).
Gin Genie is already a well-established superhero when she first appears in the pages of X-Force with her teammates. There is tension, as U-Go Girl states that 'being a fan' of Gin Genie is similar to posting one's Alcoholics Anonymous records on the internet.
Her first shown mission with the group is to North Africa. They battle drug-addled tribesmen who are attempting to overthrow the local government. During the mission, Genie's teammate Sluk dies in a tank explosion. Genie herself gets a low performance rating, as her alcohol mixing produces dangerous tremors.
Later at home, she gets performance anxiety. Plazm uses her powers to help calm her down. She is also shown worrying about her skin and how it would look for TV.
X-Force's main leader, Coach arranges for a mission that would gain lots of publicity, easily. Or so he says. The manufactured boy band 'Boys R Us' has been taken hostage in the Sonic TV studios, set deep in the city. Already, one of them has been killed. The terrorists, who just want money, are deemed perfect adversaries.
The team teleports in and all is going as planned until a helicopter gunship opens fire. Genie, the terrorists, the hostages and most of X-Force all die. The only survivors are Anarchist and U-Go Girl. The latter sends the copter crew plunging to their deaths.
Beckah could project energy to create tremors within the ground. There was some indication that alcohol helped or increased her powers.
