There are a few things Pixie can do, but I’d argue the one thing which actually put her on the map was this one moment, from Craig Kyle/Chris Yost/Skottie Young/Christina Strain. During her first proper storyline, she finds herself in a combat situation and throws ‘Pixie dust’ over some of her attackers. This stops them — why?
Because obviously it makes them hallucinate wildly. However, it seems that whenever she throws dust at somebody – it comes off her wings, like a moth – they’re affected based on whatever her mindset is at the time. The reason that the attackers sees bubbles and cuddly bears is because that’s what’s in Pixie’s head. She’s light and childish, so therefore she makes them see childish, silly things.
