Madeline Rosalind Prince
Her alias is Aphrodite, although she shares no similarities with the Greek goddess. She uses it more with the "love and beauty" aspect, although both of those are lies when applied to her.
Most of the Legion calls her Aphrodite, because she thinks it makes her sound like a god figure and she doesn't particularly enjoy being called a human name like the common folk.
The only exceptions to this rule are Ava on occasion and Xavier, who knew her prior to her Legion days.
Peter, in addition to calling her Aphrodite, calls her Mistress, but that's not of his own volition. When he's in control of what he's saying, he calls her "manipulative bitch".
long and wavy in the back with ringlets in the front serving as curtain bangs
brown with burgundy bangs
5'4", but around 5'10" with the heels she usually wears
From Q&A: Ok, I've got to ask: do six-inch-heels hurt? At least at first?
A: Of course they fucking hurt, they're supposed to. You know what they say: no pain, no gain. At this point, I'm too used to them, but I used to wish I could use my powers on myself to numb the pain. Lots of nights spent wrapping my ankles in bandages.
She draws a black heart on her face every morning like a beauty mark, but she also has a few scratches on her legs and arms from her own nails.
She has both ears pierced and is debating getting her nipples pierced as well.
tan-ish with pink undertones
Metahuman - mostly human species born with a recessive gene that, when activated, gives them superpowers in their adolescence. People may be carriers of the metahuman gene without it being active, but for this case, Madeline has an active metahuman gene that activated when she was 17.
She's an extremist and a bit of an anarchist, so anyone trying to take control instead of her she's immediately against.
She's one hell of a narcissist and she's mad for power, and even if she'd never tell anyone, she's mildly insecure.
Even when she's not wearing her heels, she walks like she is, on the balls of her feet with her heels never touching the ground. It's odd, which is why she just wears her heels all the time.
She has a habit of grabbing people to get their attention, typically by the hand or wrist.
While she tries her best not to do so in favor of keeping her hair clean and keeping her professional reputation, she does play with her hair, especially the front ringlets.
She has verbal mental manipulation. People around her do whatever she says, unless they can't hear her or she is muted for one reason or another.
She's an abusive madwoman who has sexually assaulted several members of her team. She's also narcissistic and a bit of a sadist, as well as being scarily controlling.
She likes screwing with Peter's mind and hooking up with Xavier, but they don't do much else.
ENTJ & Chaotic Evil
Emma Frost (X-Men), Poison Ivy (DC Comics), Purple Man/Kilgrave (Jessica Jones)
She had an odd childhood. Her father was a doctor and her mother a lawyer, so she grew up relatively wealthy. Because of this, she was also pretty spoiled growing up, although her parents barely paid her any attention. She started acting out in high school, getting in trouble with drugs, underage drinking, and sleeping around just to try and get her parents to pay attention to her.
From Q&A: If your parents had paid you any attention when you were younger, would your life be different now?
A: Jesus Christ, what is this, a therapy appointment? Probably not, I would have just grown up as a rich spoiled brat, which isn't much different than I am now, maybe just without a bit of murder. At my core, I'm simply irredeemable; no way around it.
She was 17 when she discovered her powers, "accidentally" manipulating a jock into sleeping with her. She absolutely fell in love (pun intended) with her powers and used them often.
She has a high-school education and went to college for one year before dropping out to become a supervillain full-time.
She's the team leader & founder of the Legion.
She's now brainwashed two whole dudes to do her bidding against their will, one of which she's forced to marry her. That's pretty villainous if you ask me.
The public has mixed feelings about her. If they've only heard of her, they tend to dislike her immensely, but if they've personally met her, they will love her until the day they die.
She loves dark colors, especially burgundy and black, and tight clothing. She has a great body and she never feels ashamed to show it off with tank tops, short and tight skirts, and extremely high heels.
While she does love tight clothing, whenever she has the option to wear long skirts and flowing fabric, she takes it. Low-cut gowns with high leg slits paired with slightly over-the-top jewelry and fancy heels are what she's comfortable in.
She doesn't keep much contact with her parents, but if they reach out, she does her best to keep up appearances. She'll fake-care about them if they fake-care about her.
Her playlist covers the beginning of her supervillain career to when she finally has a hold on Peter.
Killer Queen and Maneater detail the majority of the rumors that immediately began spreading the second she joined the supervillain scene. She was like nothing they'd ever seen before, especially with how powerful her abilities were.
Once Madeline figured out exactly what she could do, she started building up her persona of using her powers to make people fall hopelessly in love with her and control them that way, since having monotone slaves wasn't all that fun (Lovefool & Animal).
She eventually developed a reputation for sleeping around, especially after meeting Xavier (Like Lovers Do). (Friendly reminder that they're only 18 by this point and Xavier around 800.) After a while, it was a bit hard to find a supervillain who hadn't slept with the infamous Aphrodite (Ex's and Oh's).
She was eventually sick of doing this gig solo and she realized that if she wanted to do something big, she was going to need help (Hit and Run). Of course, the League moniker was already taken, so they named themselves the Legion and sought to take down the ragtag team of heroes that was ruining a perfectly good crime-riddled New York.
Also during this time, she was gaslighting the hell out of a young Logan, who only stuck with her because she had the money to pay for his HRT, plus she'd already ingrained in his brain that no one would love him like she did (Black Sheep & Royalty).
Once Logan and Peter were swapped and Madeline had a new puppet, she immediately started brainwashing him into being Logan 2.0, now being much more evil and knowing exactly all of the terrible things that she was doing to him and not being allowed to care (Choke & The Queen of White Lies).
Gods & Monsters by Lana Del Rey
“You got that medicine I need: fame, liquor, love, give it to me slowly. Put your hands on my waist, do it softly. Me and God, we don't get along, so now I sing. No one's gonna take my soul away.

This is Heaven, what I truly want.’ It's innocence lost, innocence lost.”

“But I know you’re just a White Witch, putting that spell on me. You know I love the punishment, so girl, keep telling me, la-la-la-lies.”
Billie Eilish (Aphrodite & Lucifer) - Same Album
Definitely intentional. I personally do not like Billie Eilish’s music, it’s just not my vibe, but I can’t deny that so much of her stuff just radiates supervillain energy.
The Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra (Aphrodite & Lucifer)
Less intentional, just because I liked Luci’s song whether or not it was by this artist, but Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra songs also radiate intense psychopath/supervillain energy.
MARINA (Aphrodite & Lunar)
Unintentional but still very welcome! Once again, we have an opposition of songs, with Madeline’s being about her control and gaslighting of her lovers and Ava’s about being on the other side of Xavier’s similar control.
Queen (Aphrodite & Chaos)
Unintentional but I like that it lined up. They both fall at the same time during their arcs, with both of them at the top of their game before James starts falling down and Madeline just keeps getting higher.
Madeline: I don't dress to impress, I dress to depress.
Madeline: i look so good other people hate themselves
Peter: Honestly, I’m just so evil. So full of darkness. I feed off the souls of the living. I strike fear into--
Madeline: You sleep with a stuffed snake.
Peter: he is mY sEcOnD iN COMMAND IN MY ARMY OF DARKNESS
Madeline: Love is in the air!
Ava, spraying a can of Febreze and holding her jacket over her nose: Not anymore.
Peter: I screwed up.
Madeline: Given your daily experiences, you’re gonna need to be a little more specific.
Xavier: If I die, my funeral is going to be the biggest party and you’re all invited
Ava: Great, the only party I’ve ever been invited too and he might not even die.
Logan: (if he had courage) What is your problem? Does watching me suffer somehow make you feel better about your own sad, miserable life?
Madeline: it does, 100%
Peter: What’s that piece of paper?
Madeline: Oh that’s just my to-do list
Peter: It only says my name?
Madeline and Xavier on Vormir
Red skull: here is the soul sto-
Madeline: Thank you
Xavier: Did you get it?
Red skull: I thought you were-
Madeline: sees someone being stupid in the distance
Madeline: Christ, what an idiot.
Madeline: realizes it’s Peter
Madeline: Oh wait, it’s my idiot.
Madeline: My team’s diet is entirely organic.
Simon: That’s cool. My team eats candy off the floor.
Assassin: I can see you.
Madeline: Do I look sexy?
Peter: follows Madeline like a lost dog
Peter: almost kicks out the heel to Madelines heels
Madeline: almost falls on her face I told you! Keep your distance!
3 minutes later
Peter: Kicks out The heel to Madeline heels
Madeline: Falls on her face
Peter: You good?
Madeline: Id offer you a drink but I don’t want you to stay
Peter: Can I get a HELL YEAH?
Madeline: I don’t know, can you?
Peter: sighs May I get a hell yeah?
Madeline: You should have gotten a hell yeah before we left the base.
Peter: groans But I didn’t NEED a hell yeah at the base.
Madeline, referring to James: He’s like a perfect storm of amazing hair and horrible judgement.
Madeline: You, stop that right now
Xavier, an intellectual: No, let him finish
Interviewer: Would you say you’re independent?
Peter: looks at Madeline
Peter: I’d say so, yes
Madeline: at Xavier’s funeral May I have a moment alone with them?
Peter: Of course leaves
Madeline: leaning over Xavier’s coffin now listen, I know you’re not dead
Xavier: Yeah no shit
Simon: I’m never playing sims with you again! especially after you made an underground torture chamber!
Madeline: But what else do you do with them?
Simon: TAKE CARE OF THEM
Madeline to all of her children: What did I say about stabbing your siblings?
Madeline: I’ve invited you here because I crave the deadliest game.
Peter: nods Knife Monopoly.
Madeline: I was actually going to hunt you for sport, but now I’m really interested in whatever Knife Monopoly is.
Madeline: Oh dear, some fool tried fighting a squid at the aquarium.
Peter, covered in ink: Yeah, well maybe the squid was being a dick.
Madeline: Okay codenames.
Madeline: I’m Eagle One.
Madeline: James is “Been There Done That”
Madeline: Peter is “Currently Doing That”
Madeline: Payton is “It Happened Once in a Dream”
Madeline: Xavier is “If I Had to Screw a Demon”
Madeline: And Ava is...Eagle Two
Ava: Oh thank god.
Ava: Is there a word that’s a mix of angry and sad?
Madeline: Malcontented, disgruntled, miserable, desolated.
Madeline: I just want boys to say cute things to me.
Peter: Suck my dick.
Madeline: Cute things
Peter: Suck my dick in the rain.
Madeline: I’ve molded Peter into perfection. He’s the perfect mix of weapon and servant.
Peter: throwing up in the corner
Peter: walks into the living room slightly disheveled Sorry I’m late I was doing stuff…
Madeline: walks past on her phone I’m stuff
Madeline: Bless you.
Xavier: You can’t bless me, I’m a demon.
Madeline: Alright then.
Madeline: Fuck you.
Madeline: Compliment me.
Peter: You have eyes!
Xavier: I did a bad thing
Madeline: Does it affect me
Madeline: Then suffer in silence
Simon: That’s it. It’s over. We won.
Madeline: standing up slowly behind them
Simon: nope that’s it we won I’m not turning around
Madeline: if I die, I want luci to lower me into my grave… Looks at Xavier so you can let me down one last time.
Madeline: Staring deadpan into the camera with a microphone in hand And here, you can see the endangered Luci in his natural habitat.
Xavier: Falls down the stairs, spilling his cereal everywhere
Madeline: Natural selection is coming for this specimen
Madeline’s phone rings
James;: reading it You still call your dad ‘daddy’? sips coffee
Madeline: keeping eye contact with James as she answers it Hey Luci
James: spits out coffee
Madeline: Babe can you help me with the zipper on my costume?
Madeline: ...up, babe.
CJ: This is my boyfriend Henry, he’s so strong and lovely and I love him so much
Simon: This is my spectacular boyfriend Dean, he’s my rock, and he keeps me going through the day
Madeline: This is Peter and he has rabies
Madeline: Luci would you stop that, this is serious
Xavier: party favor noise
Madeline: Isn’t fall a great season?
Xavier: Because you slowly start to wear more clothes
Simon: You deserve a reward for putting up with me
Dean: You are my reward
Peter: You deserve a reward for putting up with me
Madeline: Hell yeah I do, you’re a real bitch sometimes
Peter: Can I sit here?
Madeline: That’s my lap
Peter: Is that a yes?

Peter: but you love me
Madeline: It doesn’t make you less annoying
Madeline: Peter do you even know where Europe is?
Peter: I know its a place… I’m pretty sure
Peter, throwing his head into Madeline’s lap: Darling tell me i’m pretty
Madeline, stroking his hair: You’re pretty fucking annoying, that’s what you are
Peter: it’s going to be expensive isn’t it?
Peter: You don’t like anything cheap do you?

Peter: My heart is beating really loudly right now
Madeline, smiles: Why
Peter: There’s a cockroach near your feet
Madeline: Jumps to mid-air
Madeline: Are you straight?
Xavier: Straight from hell
Peter: What’s the word for horny but not in a sexual way? Like I’m horny for Halloween, but I don’t want to fuck a pumpkin, you feel?
Madeline: You mean excited?
Peter: Well what if I don’t want to get a tattoo?
Madeline: What happened to the bland, spineless boy I fell in love with?
Madeline: Do you think I’m too confident?

She is the leader of the supervillain team "The Legion", where she leads 13 villains in an endless fight against "The League".
