A leading member of an old Boston mercantile family, which arrived from England in the 1600s, Emma Frost inherited a good deal of wealth, but most of her large fortune is the result of her business successes.

Frost rose rapidly in the world of business thanks to her intelligence, drive, personal charm, and secret use of her psionic abilities. Eventually she became the majority stockholder of the multi-billion dollar conglomerate, renaming it Frost International.

Despite her youth Frost became chair of the board of trustees of the Massachusetts Academy, a college preparatory school located in the Berkshire Mountains in Snow Valley, Massachusetts, where Frost served as the academy's headmistress.

Frost's beauty and talents gained her an invitation to join the Hellfire Club, an elite social organization of the world's wealthy and powerful figures. She allied with fellow mutant Sebastian Shaw, a member of the Club's Council of the Chosen, which secretly conspires to achieve world domination through economic and political means.

The Leaders of the Club and Council, its foremost Lords Cardinal, were the White King - Edward Buckman and the White Queen - Paris Seville. Buckman encouraged the Council's support for "Project Armageddon," a program to build Sentinel robots to hunt down superhuman mutants. Knowing Shaw was himself a mutant Buckman told him the project was intended to capture superhuman mutants to be exploited by the council. However, Frost using her psionic powers, learned that the Project Armageddon was actually intended as a means of destroying all superhuman mutants. Together Shaw and Frost staged a coup that gave them control of the Council of the Chosen, which they renamed the Inner Circle. Shaw took the title of Black King and Frost became the new White Queen.
