Escapade, who’ll make her debut when Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1, written by Charlie Jane Anders, arrives June 22.Escapade, aka Shela Sexton, is a trans mutant who is “a total goofball” according to Anders. “She is, a cool weirdo who has a super strong sense of justice and a profound loyalty to her friends.” She also boasts a very unique power.

While she’s only able to maintain it for a few hours at a time, Escapade “can instantaneously switch physical locations with another person or trade any specific physical or abstract attributes such as possessions, organizational status, skills, superhuman powers, and even situations!” according to Marvel.

There’s one wrinkle though: To pull off the switch, she has to be within seven feet of her target, and the chances for mishaps increase depending on the complexity of the situation.Fortunately, Escapade isn’t, well, escapading alone.
