Blindspot can selectively remove, restore, or implant memories within the human mind of any experience or timespan, ranging from hours to years, and can psionically access others' memories at will. She herself is immune to any form of memory alteration.
Not much is known of Blindspot as she only recently appeared, in the "Rogue - Forget-Me-Not" saga.
What is known is that she and Sunfire had worked with Rogue and Mystique back when Sunfire was still working with his uncle, Tomo Yoshida, and Rogue was a member of the Brotherhood. Blindspot had the ability to erase and restore memories at will. The four were on a mission to steal Lord Dark Wind's adamantium bonding process. Mystique later cut her ties with Blindspot who she did not trust. Since she always erased her tracks once a contract ended, Blindspot wiped the minds of everyone who was involved so no one would remember her.
Blindspot discovered that Lord Dark Wind wanted all four dead for trying to steal his adamantium process. Realizing how the others would be in danger, as they had no memory of the mission to steal Dark Wind's technology, Blindspot went to Japan to erase his memory of the ordeal. On arrival, she discovered that his daughter, who was now Lady Deathstrike, had already killed him. Blindspot erased Deathstrike's memories as well.
However, the cyborg Deathstrike, who was more machine than woman, was able to restore her memories in the same way one would reboot a hard drive. Deathstrike kidnapped Blindspot, who released a photo of Sunfire, Rogue, and Mystique to attract their attention so they would try to save her. Although, Mystique apparently never came, Rogue met Sunfire (whose reputation was ruined by the photograph) in Tokyo to try to discover who was responsible. They ran into Lady Deathstrike who, in a heated battle, cut off Sunfire's legs, leaving him in a critical condition. Rogue surrendered to Deathstrike, who imprisoned the two. It was there that Rogue met Blindspot, who restored Rogue's memories and explained what was happening.
When Deathstrike discovered that the three were not actually responsible for stealing the adamantium bonding process, she tried to kill them to destroy any evidence of what she had done. A weak Sunfire asked Rogue to absorb his powers so she could properly battle Deathstrike (Rogue had previously lost the powers of Carol Danvers that she had taken). Rogue was hesitant, worried that she would harm Sunfire, but Blindspot pushed her lips onto Sunfire's face, causing her to absorb all his powers and possibly killing him. With these powers, Rogue now also contained Sunfire's personality (as she once had Danver's personality within her). Sunfire's personality controlling her, Rogue went out to get revenge on Deathstrike, severely injuring her. The X-Men arrived in time to intervene, but Blindspot erased Rogue's memories of being an X-Man, causing her to see her teammates as her enemies. After a brief altercation, Rogue's memories were restored and she told the X-Men what had happened to Sunfire. They went to where Rogue last saw Sunfire, but his body was missing; leading some of the X-Men to believe he was somehow still alive. It is unknown if Blindspot retained her mutant powers after M-Day.
