Cerise is a fictional superhero in the Marvel Comics universe.
Cerise is an extraterrestrial from the planet Shaskofrugnon in the Shi'ar Empire. She was accidentally transported to Earth after deserting the empire's brutal army, the Ghrand Jhar, refusing to fire upon innocents and as a result causing the death of her crew. She became a member of Excalibur upon encountering them, and later became romantically involved with Nightcrawler.
Alongside Excalibur, she battled the Anti-Phoenix's rock creatures. She also fought Necrom alongside Excalibur. She later encountered the Crazy Gang. Alongside Excalibur, she was struck down by Jamie Braddock and Sat-Yr-9. She next aided Excalibur and the X-Men against Troll Associates. Cerise and Nightcrawler then encountered the Knight Errant. She was then attacked by the Sentinels and captured by Nigel Orpington-Smythe. She then met Khaos, and alongside Khaos and Excalibur she battled his foe Ghath on their planet Irth, and invited Khaos to join Excalibur.
During the Warpies Saga, wherein superhuman children were being manipulated, Cerise was baffled with the concept of "children". Shadowcat tried to explain to her how infants are born and grows up to become adults. But Cerise reveals that she "emerged from the source" as she is, hinting that she may have been engineered rather than born. As she has revealed in her first appearance, she is the gene stock of Subruki, Zarstock, and Kuli Ka.
