Cecilia Reyes


Cecilia Reyes is a Marvel Comics character who was briefly a member of the X-Men. Created by writer Scott Lobdell and artist Carlos Pacheco, she first appeared in X-Men (vol. 2) #65 (June 1997).

A Puerto Rican medical doctor, she has the mutant ability to project a force field around her body. Unlike most X-Men, she has no interest in superheroics, and desires only to live an ordinary life, having been forced into the team by circumstance.

Cecilia Reyes decided to become a doctor when her father was gunned down in front of her as a child, and she was unable to do anything to help him. The X-Men tried recruiting her when it was discovered that she was a mutant, but Reyes had no interest in being a superhero. However, when 'Operation: Zero Tolerance, a government-backed anti-mutant task force, targeted her, she was forced to join forces with the X-Man Iceman and other mutants to escape New York City and track down Bastion, Operation Zero Tolerance's leader.

She refused to join the X-Men at first, making an attempt to return to her normal life. However after meeting with problems with racism and both encouragement from Daredevil and an encounter with the villain Pyro, Reyes reluctantly joined the X-Men. She had several adventures with the team, combating the Ru'tai and the Shadow King. She usually did not bother with a costume, wearing either the yellow and blue training uniform or, on one occasion as a joke by Beast, an old costume of Wasp's. It was while wearing Wasp's old uniform that Reyes became involved in a battle with the X-Men's frequent enemy, the N'Garai. Reyes mostly ran away, but was saved (and mocked) by the X-Man rookie Marrow. She was eventually sucked into the N'Garai dimension, to be experimented upon, but her force field saved her from the cutting instruments. She escaped with the rest of the X-Men and the civilians they had saved.

Later, Reyes was tempted by the Shadow King by offers of a new life, but managed to resist the villain's offer. Reyes did not find costumed adventuring suitable for her, and left to set up her own medical practice.

Later, she was caught up in the X-Men's battle with the Neo, a villainous group of mutants who claimed to have evolved beyond the level of other mutants. Reyes was trapped in the Neo's fortress below New York City and used a street drug called Rave to make her mutant powers more destructive, ensuring her survival. The X-Men rescued her, and the telepathic Professor X helped her kick her addiction to Rave during a detox period back at the X-Mansion.

Reyes last appearance with the X-Men was at the time when Beast discovered the cure to the Legacy Virus. She was the one to discover Colossus dead after injecting himself with the cure. Reyes attempted to revive him, but was unsuccessful.

Later, she was seen as a prisoner at a mutant concentration camp run by the Weapon X program, called Neverland. There she attempted to use her medical expertise to help out the other prisoners. She was apparently killed off panel when a brainwashed Agent Zero destroyed the camp, and her death was later confirmed in the letter column of New Excalibur #1. However it seems this was a mistake, as Mike Marts clarified in an interview on, stating that if Cecilia would be dead they would show it on panel, and therefore Cecilia was not yet considered deceased at that time.

In X-Men: The 198 Files, it has been revealed that Cecilia's older non-mutant brother, Colonel Miguel Reyes, had been assigned to head O*N*E security on the Xavier School grounds, with the purpose of finding out the fate of his sister.

In NYX: No Way Home #4, Reyes is shown having survived Neverland, and is running a small medical practice through homeless shelters and her apartment. While not definitively in hiding, she is attempting to remain inconspicuous. It is not known whether or not she retained her powers after M-Day.

Cecilia can generate a force field, described in her first appearance as a "psioplasmic bio-field" around her body which provides resistance to energy and physical attacks, and can shape or expand it to protect those nearby; however, impacts on the force field cause Cecilia pain. She also has shown the ability to wield her forcefield as a blunt force, pushing others out of her way. In X-Men (vol. 2) #100, she created spikes which could punch through a human body. While under the effects of the mutant-enhancing drug Rave, Cecilia is also able to use her force field offensively, forming it into a blade that can be used to attack enemies. The field can be raised consciously, but in her initial appearances, it is triggered by any external force used against it. While effective against external force, her field still leaves her vulnerable to attacks of insufficient force, such as gas, as seen when Colossus rendered her unconscious with a gas weapon.

Cecilia is also a capable medical doctor and surgeon, making her the only member of the X-Men who is a doctor of medicine.

In Days of Future Now, Cecilia survived the death camp Neverland and tried to help Wolverine to change the past to prevent "Days of Future Now" from ever happening. However, while watching over him, she was shot in the back by a Sublime-controlled Fantomex.

In X-Men: The End, she also had survived Neverland and has married Beast and they have three children (two boys and one girl), Ciaran, Francesca & Miguel McCoy.

In the 2006 movie X-Men: The Last Stand, Kavita Rao was played by Iranian-American actress Shohreh Aghdashloo. This is despite claims made by Aghdashloo in an interview with Entertainment Weekly (August 26, 2005) that she would be playing Dr. Cecilia Reyes. Ralph Winter, producer of all three movies, subsequently stated that Aghdashloo would be playing Rao.

Monica Reyes

Monica Reyes (pronounced Ray-Yez) (b. Mexico City, Mexico) is a fictional character on the TV series The X-Files, played by actress Annabeth Gish. She appeared in the opening credits of Season 9, although her first appearances were in season 8.

Monica Reyes was born and raised in Mexico City, Mexico, where her parents still live (as of 2002). Because of growing up in Mexico, Reyes speaks fluent Spanish. She majored in folklore and mythology at Brown University, and has a Masters degree in Religious Studies. In 1990, Reyes enrolled to the FBI at Quantico, Virginia. Her first assignment in the FBI was serving on a special task force investigating Satanic rituals.

Reyes then served in the New York City field office, where she became romantically involved with Special Agent Brad Follmer despite the FBI's strict anti-fraternization rules. Reyes was the head investigator in the kidnapping of 7 year-old Luke Doggett, son of NYPD officer John Doggett. The boy was eventually found dead, but no suspect was ever apprehended. In 1999, Monica Reyes transferred to the New Orleans field office.

In 2001, Reyes was contacted by John Doggett, now a Special Agent assigned to The X-Files, to assist in on a case involving the disappearances of several individuals who claimed to be alien abductees, as well as the disappearance of Special Agent Fox Mulder. Because of her background, Reyes considered that these believers may have simply formed something of a cult, but did not rule out the possibility of alien intervention. She stayed with the case until after Mulder was returned by his abductors, but returned to her field office soon after.

She later contacted Agent Mulder, who was back to full health at the time, involving a case she suspected had some link to the murder of Doggett's son, who assisted her with the case. However, as before, she soon returned to her own work.

She remained with the New Orleans field office until she was called upon to protect Special Agent Dana Scully in May 2001, driving her out to a remote location in Georgia so that the expectant Scully might deliver her child out of harm's way. Reyes helped deliver the child, and soon after made a permanent move, becoming Doggett's partner on The X-Files.

Doggett and Reyes were last seen in the New Mexico desert in 2002, where they were warning Agents Mulder and Scully of the arrival of Knowle Rohrer, a Supersoldier linked to the conspiracy. They were fleeing the scene as black helicopters destroyed the Anazasi adobes where the Cigarette Smoking Man was living. They are most likely still with the FBI, however The X-Files was closed after Skinner's and Kersh's involvements in Mulder's escape were revealed. As of 2008, The X-Files remained closed, and Reyes's current status is unrevealed.

Reyes is religious and a highly spiritual person, and has little doubt about the paranormal. She is not as obsessed with it as Fox Mulder is, but she is willing to accept explanations involving the paranormal. She is a combination of the different members of The X-Files team: She is not a full believer, like Mulder, nor a scientific mind, like Scully, or a full skeptic, like Doggett, but voices concern and opinions about all three areas. During her tenure on The X-Files, Reyes came to experience and accept first hand, evidence of her own past lives as well as experiences of parallel universes. She was a smoker, preferring Morley Lights, and was often seen trying to quit, and had seemingly quit the habit altogether by the time of the ninth season premiere.

Notably, much of the information in this official biography was never established in episodes and some facts were even changed, but the description provides an insight into how the writers originally perceived the character of Monica Reyes.

Al Reyes

Rafael Alberto "Al" Reyes (born April 10, 1970 in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic) is a free agent Major League Baseball pitcher. A right-handed pitcher and career reliever, he has played for seven teams; debuting on April 27, 1995 with the Milwaukee Brewers and playing for the Baltimore Orioles, Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, and Tampa Bay Devil Rays/Rays, over the years. He was originally drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1988.

He missed the Cardinals 2005 playoff run after tearing a ligament in his right elbow, and required reconstructive surgery.

In 2006, he signed with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and was placed on the Durham Bulls minor league roster, but did not play a game that season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. On December 22, 2006, he re-signed with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, where he became their closer. Reyes finished the 2007 year with 26 saves in 30 chances. Notably, his only blown saves came against the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Boston Red Sox.

On April 10, 2008, Reyes got into a fight at a bar in South Tampa and was tasered twice by a police officer. This had little affect on his ability to throw, as the very next night he got the win for the Rays against the Orioles.

Reyes was designated for assignment on August 9, 2008, and became a free agent on August 18 after refusing an assignment to the minors. He signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets two days later, and was called up to the team when rosters expanded in September. He was released on September 18, 2008, without making any appearances.

Anthony Reyes

DSC00562 Anthony Reyes.jpg

Anthony Loza Reyes (born October 16, 1981 in Whittier, California) is a right-handed pitcher for the Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball. Reyes is known to be superstitious, often wearing a flat-billed cap and long baseball socks. Contrary to popular belief, Reyes does not iron the bill of his hat, rather, he cuts out some of the inner lining of the hat, which allows for the bill to lie flatter due to the way the hat fits his head.

Reyes has a younger brother, Erik, who pitched for Concordia University Irvine in 2007.

Reyes spent his college years at the University of Southern California from 2000–2003, and though he was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 13th round of the 2002 amateur draft, he elected to return to school for his senior year. He was on several USC teams with San Diego Padres pitcher Mark Prior. In four seasons with the Trojans, Reyes compiled a 17-16 record and earned Pac-10 honors three times. He was drafted in the 15th round by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2003.

Reyes was eventually considered the top pitching prospect in the St. Louis farm system. He spent the 2004 season initially with the Palm Beach Cardinals, where he compiled a 3-0 record with a 4.66 ERA, and then later with the Tennessee Smokies, where he achieved a 6-2 record with a 2.91 ERA.

After a solid 2005 season with the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds, Reyes was given a chance to prove himself in the major leagues. On August 9, at Miller Park, Reyes threw 6 1/3 innings in his debut start against the Milwaukee Brewers, earning the win and giving up just two runs on two hits. He was demoted immediately after the game, having fulfilled his role of giving the regular rotation an extra day's rest by manager Tony La Russa.

Reyes opened the 2006 season with Memphis. He was recalled to St. Louis June 23 when Mark Mulder was placed on the disabled list. As a result, Reyes was asked to start the final game of a three game series against the Chicago White Sox. In the previous two games, the White Sox scored 33 runs against the Cardinals. In the third game Reyes threw 90 pitches, 67 for strikes, had six strikeouts and no walks, and carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning. The only White Sox hit was a home run by Jim Thome. The Cardinals offense could not respond in kind and the White Sox won 1-0. Reyes pitched an eight inning complete game and took the loss despite giving up only the one hit (albeit a home run) to Thome. He also struck out six and walked none.

During the Cardinals' 2006 playoff run, Reyes was left off the roster for the National League Division Series against the San Diego Padres. However, after advancing to the National League Championship Series against the New York Mets, the Cardinals added him to the roster in place of starting pitcher Jason Marquis. Reyes started Game 4 of the series and pitched four innings, taking a no-decision. He pitched the first game of the 2006 World Series and earned the win, pitching eight innings and retiring 17 consecutive batters from the first through the sixth inning, a World Series record for a rookie. Reyes gave up two runs and earned player of the game honors. The Cardinals went on to win the series, defeating the Detroit Tigers four games to one.

After starting the 2007 season 0-8 with a 6.08 ERA (although he had the worst run support in the majors), the Cardinals optioned him to Memphis on May 27. Todd Wellemeyer replaced him in the Cardinals starting rotation. He made three strong starts for the Redbirds and was recalled to St. Louis June 16, but was optioned back to Memphis again on July 2. Reyes was called up again from Memphis to make a spot start in a doubleheader against Milwaukee. He pitched well allowing 2 runs on two hits.

Reyes began the 2008 season in St. Louis' bullpen, going 2-1 with a 4.91 ERA before being demoted to Triple-A Memphis. He went 2-3 with a 3.25 ERA in 11 starts at Memphis.

On July 26, 2008, Reyes was traded to the Cleveland Indians for right-handed reliever Luis Perdomo and cash. The trade was made because of Reyes' dwindling relationship with Cardinal manager Tony LaRussa and pitching coach Dave Duncan. He had disagreements with Duncan over what kind of pitcher he was going to be at the Major League level. Reyes wanted to be a power pitcher, utilizing his low-to-mid 90s fastball, while Duncan preferred him to become a ground ball pitcher and develop his sinker.

On August 8, 2008, the Indians promoted Reyes from Triple-A Buffalo. That same day, he made his first start for Cleveland, going 6 1/3 innings, allowing just 1 run, and picked up the win.
