-Crystal's always had a weird place in comics. See, when The Inhumans debuted, they were a mysterious race of outcasts who could NEVER interact with our world, meaning that there was a tragedy to her & Johnny Storm's romance. Not that it really WAS romantic- Stan Lee's idea of them falling in love was more like "Hey! That person is attractive! OMG I'm in LUUUUVVVV I CAN'T BE WITH THEM THO SO WAH!", which is pretty much 100% accurate to how teenagers act- but everyone else acted all sad about it, so we were apparently supposed to take it seriously. Now, this whole "Star Crossed Lovers" thing is a great old trope for a reason (I certainly do love it for Atom Smasher & Stargirl, f'rinstance), so they played off that for a few years. But then The Inhumans permanently got into society. For a bit. Which meant Crystal & Johnny COULD be together... but the whole appeal of their relationship was that they COULDN'T be together, so they really had nothing to do.
-Fast-forward a few years, and she's dumped Johnny for Quicksilver of all people (who had nothing better to do). They have a child (Luna, a normal human daughter of an Inhuman and a Mutant), do some stuff, and she shows up in The Avengers after years of being an FF-alternate. This was the HORRIBLE "Leather Jacket Phase", though, so was kind of a "Dork Age" for comic books in general, and The Avengers specifically. She ended up cheating on Pietro with a normal human. Yeah, just some guy, not even a hero or anything.
-Another bunch of years later, and she was forcibly married to Ronan the Accuser to provide a union between the Kree & The Inhumans who came to rule them, but then it turns out they really did love each other after all, turning Ronan into a big ol' softie. AAAAWWWW... (note that this is a guy who once openly mocked The Vision & Scarlet Witch upon figuring out they were in love, just because it was so unlikely and funny). So Crystal's had a bizarre history (filled with more men than most comic book women's, that's for sure), and who knows where she'll end up? Reign of Kings has given her more to do than at just about any other time in her history (she's gotten twice the characterization of any other Inhuman in that span), so the future just may be bright.
-Crystal stats up funny, having a ridiculous FIFTEEN Alt-Effects based around an Elementalist (all elements) set-up. She's fairly powerful, but not really PL 10 worthy (most of the other Inhumans are far better ass-kickers), and is a PL 9 character that is slightly above her standard PC-level points-cost because she's so insanely VERSATILE. She's a pretty good team player, and has so many options in combat that just about anybody is going to be weak to at least one of her attacks. All those Area Bursts and Control powers are bound to be effective. She's a bit of a Glass Cannon, though- PL 7.5 on Defense is not going to let you take a punch.
