She grew with an abusive father and disfunctional family, so this lead her to find her own way when she discovered her powers, that at the time were only telepathy. She came across Sebastian Shaw and joined the Hellfire Club ahe also used her powers to manipulate people and gain a giant fortune. Years later she was training a group of young mutants called Hellions, sadly they were all killed. This tragic event made her rethink her life and decided to change sides, she quit the Hellfire Club and began a new group of mutants in training to redeem for all her past mistakes, so she trained Generation X alongside Banshee. When the team disbanded she went to Genosha to continue her role as a teacher, the island was a haven for mutants and millions lived there, but the island was attacked by Sentinels sent by Cassandra Nova, most of the population died, Emma managed to survive thanks to the manifestation of her secondary power, that is turning into a living diamond. After that, she decided to join the X-Men and stay with them at the mansion. Not many of the X-Men trusted her, but eventually she gained the trust of the team. After Jean Grey was killed she began a relationship with Cyclops, and now she serves as one of the leaders and most important members.

Define "strong".  Emma Frost is a very skilled telepath. She is almost as good as Charles Xavier. She was able to telepathically stalemate Exodus, as depicted in X-Men: Messiah Complex. She also managed to defeat a relatively inexperienced Rachel and Nate Grey.  However, she is not powerful enough to take down the Shadow King. I would like to see her go up against Mr. Sinister.  
 
Now, in her diamond form, she has some substantial strength, but certainly wouldn't be able to compete with Colossus.  She grew up with a strict family (her father was very strict) in Massachusetts, and she began to work for Sebastian Shaw with the Hellfire Club. It is also interesting to note that Xavier offered her to come to the X-Mansion to be a student of his, but her father did not allow that.  Then, Emma proceeded to gather a group called the Hellions, whom she taught how to use their powers. 
 
Her abilities: She is a telepath and can turn her body into organic diamond form.
 
I personally think that her "good-lookingness" depends on who the artist is. LOL 
 
I think that she is neither good, nor bad. She simply has her own way of doing things. She is often untrustworthy, especially in the beginning, but seems to have no obvious malicious intentions.

Jean Grey has always been good. Now, Dark Phoenix is a whole other story. And yes, she is dead right now, has been since 2004. And Gambit would beat Emma hand to hand no doubt, but she can easily take him down with a telepathic blast, also in her diamond form it would be very difficult for Gambit to hurt her. So I have to say that probably Emma would be the winner.

I don't think she could beat him. I'm surprised you know about New Son. xD

@ownsin: Technically Jean Grey isn't really dead, her soul? i think whatever it is, is completely one with the phoenix right now. And she is searching around the universe for the rest of the pieces of the Phoenix Force. Which explains why the Stepford Cuckoos (clones of Emma Frost) and Rachel Grey have lost their pieces of the Force. So she'll be returning soon.

@xxCellPhoneGirlxx: @The Dark Huntress: LOL I know. I was just playing on the rumor that Hope Summers was actually Jean Grey. 
 
There was also that image showing Hope saying "Prepare." to Emma Frost at the end of X-Men: Second Coming. I don't know if that is indicative of something.

@Edamame: That was her repeating what Jean said to her during Sisterhood, which was indicative of the PF, IMO, as well as the return of Jean, since she's collecting pieces of the PF.

Ugh, really? I hate Jean, she really needs to stay dead. Stupid Marvel >_> 
 
As for the thread, Emma Frost is the best X-Woman by far.

I have respect for Emma . 
Back when Rogue couldn't touch anybody, she tried helping her and Gambit have a telepathic relationship . 
I also think Emma and Scott make a good couple :)

LOL As long as the Phoenix Force is still around, Jean Grey will never "stay dead".

How did Hope Summers know what Jean said though? I agree with your assumptions/opinions toward the end of your post.

She didn't. My theory is that it was the Phoenix Force speaking through her.

Some people regard Emma Frost as un-killable, I didn't use immortal because she will die of old age eventually. When Emma enters her diamond form, she is still sentient. Even when "some one" shot her and shattered her to bits, a competent telepath can still sense her "presence". A skilled telekinetic can reform her shattered diamond body leaving no trace that her body was completely destroyed.

She's not un-killable by any means. Get her while she's in her regular form with a sniper bullet through the forehead and you're all set. That's only one out of numerous ways to do it.

@The Dark Huntress: During "Astonishing X-men", When Emma asked Danger to kill her, it took a "while" because Em's diamond body kept popping up unconsciously. It might be her sub-conscious telling her that there's danger for her and changes automatically. Btw, how could a person possibly sneak up on a telepath? (rhetorical)

@Justinit4theforums: It is possible, when Betsy first changed into Kwannons body a few peole snuck up on her and she is one of the best telepaths,  no i know Emma is a much more skilled telepath but it could still happen.
