Other Relatives: Carrie D’Ancato (paternal aunt)
An ordinary family from the Deep South, Nick and Sharon were high school sweethearts who married upon graduation. They were devestated to find they were unable to have children, and when Irene Adler appeared on their doorstep one day with a toddler she told them they had to adopt, they only hesitated for a short time before taking the little girl in and raising her as their own.
When Marie manifested as a mutant, almost killing her boyfriend Cody Robbins, the D'Ancatos reacted with fear and confusion, but tried to help their daughter as best they could. When she ran away, they were heartbroken, and overjoyed when she made contact with them again after winding up at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.
When the D’Ancatos told Marie she was adopted, she reacted poorly, hurting them deeply by cutting off all contact with them once again. They invited her home for Thanksgiving in 2006 and were very happy when she decided to attend, despite her reluctance.
Their relationship continues to be difficult, partly due to Marie's long absences.
