Fictional character biography[edit]

Tildie's strong mutant abilities first manifested as she was asleep in her mother's bed. She was having a nightmare that came to life. She killed her mother who was sleeping beside her. Her father rushed in and was also killed. The cops were called and came to her house to see what was happening. Officer Hoyt was killed in the same way as her parents. Tildie was apprehended and taken to Benetech Labs, where she was used as a guinea pig for the "Cure" by Dr. Kavita Rao. Tildie lost her abilities and stayed at the labs with Kavita.[volume & issue needed]

One night, Ord of the Breakworld stole her and used her as a hostage.[volume & issue needed] She was successfully taken by the X-Men and returned to Benetech.[volume & issue needed]


Her nightmares can manifest into gigantic real monsters. At the same time, Tildie is inside the monster when asleep. She can unleash intensely powerful blasts of red-colored energy.

Other media[edit]


Tildie Soames appears in the Wolverine and the X-Men episode "Battle Lines" voiced by Danielle Judovits. She is shown locked up in a sealed box that was watched over by Kavita Rao at the Mutant Response Division's Central Facility. When Mystique reported the problem, Magneto sent Juggernaut to break the box open and implant her with a device to make her lose control over her mutant abilities. A dark red gigantically huge monster manifested from Tildie's nightmares, knocked Juggernaut into the city and then went on a rampage. During battle, Wolverine discovered her in the monster and Emma Frost was able to infiltrate her mind. Rogue absorbs the abilities of Shadowcat and Juggernaut and uses them to enter the monster. Once Rogue got into the monster, she removed the device as Tildie tells her that she can't stop the monster. Rogue then uses her absorption ability on Tildie which stops the monster. Tildie is currently living with the X-Men to learn how to better control her abilities. In "Backlash," Shadowcat looked after Tildie so that she wouldn't go monster while the X-Men are away. She managed to keep the girl calm and hidden while she took care of an MRD raid. In "Foresight, Part 3", Tildie appeared with the rest of the X-Men and met up with Professor X for the first time.
