The birth of Bliss was years before the creation of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. She is at least 8 years older than the girls. Bliss' creation happened when Professor Utonium got into a science-off with a rival scientist, Professor Newtronium, who had just created the Perfect Little Boy solely out of artificial ingredients and can fly so Utonium attempted to do the same thing, with the only difference being the gender and to fly further.
He added sugar, spice, and everything nice into his concoction, but accidentally added in Chemical W, giving his creation superpowers. Thus, "The Perfect Little Girl" was born, which he named "Blisstina Francesca Francia Mariam Alicia Utonium", or "Bliss" for short. Professor Utonium loved Bliss and raised her the same way he'd raised his three future girls, but it was only a matter of time before Bliss' powers started coming into play and proving their danger. Professor Utonium started to realize that whenever Bliss got excited, enraged, terrified, or upset, her feelings would mix with her powers, and would cause destruction. Bliss would blast holes in the walls of the house and endanger the well-being of the Professor and everyone else around her.
This continued for some time, with the Professor and Bliss fearing the worst would come. Soon enough it came to pass when Bliss grew upset about being unable to eat cereal without milk. Growing increasingly upset, her powers merged with her emotions once more and an intense explosion destroyed the entire house. Shocked and ashamed at what she had done, Bliss fled the scene, going to a deserted island where she'd spend her days trying to control her erratic powers. Professor Utonium thought she had died in the explosion. As devastated as he was at the loss, he eventually decided that he needed to move forward from the past, and try again with making another perfect little girl. When he did, he decided to shelter them from any information about their previous sister, and let them enjoy the fact that they were perfectly functional creations, just like he always wanted them to be.
When Bliss ran away, she'd discovered a deserted island called "Bird Poop Island". There, she lived out at least 8 years of her life, not needing to worry about her uncontrolled powers, since the only other people around were animals, including a tiny elephant named MIH, who befriended her and stuck with her for the majority of her time on that island. As she grew older, she'd become consistently reminded of her homesickness. By the time she'd become a teenager, Bliss decided to return to Townsville to see the professor once again.
Bliss was nervous on her road back to her home, thinking more of the destruction she left behind than the potential joy she wished to bring. Her first companion was the now existing Bubbles, who knew nothing of her backstory and just saw her as a basic friend to hang out with. When she told Blossom and Buttercup about Bliss, they assumed Bubbles was just making up another imaginary friend. Bliss would repeatedly cause the same destruction as before, only this time, her disappearances would place the blame on Bubbles. This went on for a while until Bliss overcame her shyness, when it meant saving The Powerpuff Girls from Earth Plow.
When Bliss turned out to be true, she and Professor Utonium explained her backstory and her reasons for coming back. After getting their heads around this, The Powerpuff Girls were ecstatic to have an older sister and they introduced her to their lives. They tried teaching her about fighting crime, using superpowers, and having fun. However, Bliss had developed anxiety due to the erratic nature of her powers and how destructive they could be, and this anxiety came into play, causing her to once again cause destruction around her whenever she felt very nervous and upset. Bliss talked with MIH about her inability to overcome this issue with her powers, and MIH worked to try and convince her that The Professor and the girls hated her, saying that she should team up with him instead. Bliss was on the fence about this, torn between the love of her longtime friend, suspicion of the Professor's motivations and growing companionship between her sisters. However, it was soon revealed that "MIH" was really HIM. Hypnotizing Bliss, HIM fused with her and absorbed her powers, and then unleashed an attack on The City of Townsville.
HIM caused chaos in Townsville, an unwilling Bliss as his weapon, and as The Powerpuff Girls opposed HIM, Bliss managed to break free of HIM. With her freedom, she and her sisters teamed up to take down HIM, once and for all. After this, Bliss had finally learned how to control her powers and become a truly capable and fully functioning member of the team. During the fight, however, HIM had used his sorcery to take the planet Saturn out of orbit and send it flying toward Earth.
Although the planet was stopped in it's tracks, it was still far out of place, sending the cosmos out of whack. The Powerpuff Family welcomed Bliss to stay with them and become their newest advocate, but Bliss declined their approval, for the time being, saying that due to the turmoil of the solar system, she had to become a defender of the galaxy, restoring order to the cosmos, while her sisters took care of the Earth. In a tearful goodbye, just before Bliss left, her sister constructed a headband for her, with three beads on it, each one having their signature colors, so that while she was spending time in space, she'd always have a sentiment to remember them by.
Blisstina has dark skin, a purple dress, and purple eyes similar to Bunny. Unlike the other Powerpuff girls, she is a teenager, having much wider hips and longer legs. Blisstina has long neon light blue hair, with brighter blue highlights, with a darker blue outline. She often wears a blue headband with a pink heart adorned upon it.
Bliss is the same delightful bundle of joy as the other three girls. However, she doesn't quite meet the same standards of the "perfect little girl". Bliss has a chemical instability as a result of Chemical W. Because of this, whenever she feels strongly about something, whether it be positive or negative, her powers combine with her emotions, causing harm and destruction to anyone and anything around her. Despite this, Bliss is a nice girl and she finds herself rather horrified with the result of her explosive powers. Because of this, she tries her best to avoid it. Bliss also suffers from anxiety, as a result of her power imbalance, and since anxiety can cause emotions to be out of whack at times, when she feels a lot of pressure, her anxious emotions combine with her powers and causes an explosion. With the help of her younger sisters, she is able to do just that and become the crime-fighting hero she's always dreamed of being.
Powers & Abilities
Like her younger sisters, Bliss has super strength, durability and the ability to fly.
Electric Generation - When Bliss is emotionally fueled enough, she generates a field of electricity. When released, this unleashes a gigantic, destructive explosion. This is caused by any particularly powerful emotions she may experience.
Telekinesis - One of Bliss' unique powers is the ability to move multiple objects through the air without coming in any physical contact with them. She discovered this in "Blisster Sister", when manipulating derby dogs. She later used these powers on The Gnat, moving his limbs, so that he would attack himself. In "Blissfully Unaware", Bliss moved objects around the kitchen, without the Professor's knowledge, so that he'd end up making a pizza instead of a broccoli souffle.
Teleportation - Bliss has the power to teleport from one place to another, either at short distances or very long distances.
Fusion - Bliss has the ability to combine her entity with other beings, be they good or evil. Ideally, she and the three other girls would form into an ultimate, singular Powerpuff Girl named "Sisterhood". She fused with HIM, not knowing he was evil, but she didn't have any control over their larger creation. However, when fusing with her sisters later on, she had equal control over their ultimate entity.
Blossom - Bliss' younger sister. In "Blisster Sister", the girls were trying to help Bliss calm her anxiety when it came to her erratic powers. Blossom offered her tax books to read as it helps her. Bliss kindly declines, as its not something that interests her and Buttercup agrees it's not something a normal person would like.
Bubbles - Bliss' younger sister and the first to know about her existence. In "Find Your Bliss", Bubbles was very friendly with Bliss and spent lots of time with her, long before the other two girls learned she wasn't imaginary. In "Blisster Sister", she too tried to help Bliss with her anxiety by letting her know about Swan boat rides. Bliss seemed a bit interested in this, but Blossom and Buttercup wanted to show her their interests too.
Buttercup - Bliss' younger sister. In "Blisster Sister", Buttercup offered loud rock and roll to help with anxiety, but to Bliss this only would cause her more anxiety.
Professor Utonium - Bliss' creator and father. When Bliss was first created, Professor and Bliss were very happy together. She was his perfect little girl. Sweet, strong and incredibly smart, Professor was very proud of Bliss. However, the time came when her powers began to grow so powerful, that they would merge with her emotions. Whether these emotions were very positive or very negative, it would all happen the same; she'd end up causing an explosion around her. Professor and Bliss grew scared of her powers and how they reacted, and things became tense. One day, Bliss ended up destroying the house after growing upset over not having milk in the house to eat cereal. When Bliss leaves to not cause any more destruction, Professor believes she perished in the explosion. Devastated, Professor mourned Bliss but eventually decided he wanted to try again to make the perfect little girl. When Bliss returned years later, Professor was shocked and placed her in a protective bubble to protect others from her powers until she learned to control them. Things became tense between the two the longer the Professor refused to allow her to go to school or fight crime with her sisters. Bliss was concerned about the Professors handling of her, and more than once grew upset with him. By the end however, when the Professor witnesses Bliss saving Townsville with her sisters, he finally accepts that she is ready and the two reconcile.
HIM - While on Bird Poop Island, HIM befriended Bliss in the form of a tiny elephant named MIH. After years of being her little friend, he got her to return to her sisters, and later turn against them. HIM was ultimately taken down, but his lies and manipulation of her make him her current biggest enemy and threat.
Mojo Jojo - Mojo and Bliss were best friends before she ran away but was a quick enemy of Bliss' in "Bliss Reminisce", when he attempted to break her out of her force field, for the sake of unleashing her destruction upon the world. However, he tried to help her and the Powerpuff girls when they were fighting HIM.
Earth Plow - First villain she fought, when returning to Townsville.
Gnat - One of the most recurring villains she's fought in her debut special.
Tyrannosaurus Tex - A fictional monster she defeated in a holographic simulation.
Chipmunk Commando - One of the minor villains, she defeated in combat.
Sporde - An alien she was tracking down after she destroyed his eggs on every planet in space.
Her last name was also mentioned as "Utonium", in her introduction, making this the first time a Powerpuff Girl has ever explicitly stated her last name. This supports the theory that the last names of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are also "Utonium", being fathered by Professor Utonium.
Bliss's introduction to the team brings a lot of "firsts" to the table. She is the first black Powerpuff girl, the first teenage Powerpuff girl, and also the first Powerpuff girl with an unnatural hair color, hers' being electric blue.
Also similar to Bunny, she is significantly taller and differently shaped than the standard stature of the other three girls, but not to as much of an extent. They are also both unstable in different ways. Bliss with her unstable powers which likely happened due to Chemical W being used to create her rather than X, and Bunny physically due to being made with artificial ingredients with artificial sweetener, dirt, twigs, and random nice items etc.
One difference between Bliss and Bunny is that Bliss was created before her sisters whereas in the original series, Bunny was created by Bliss's sisters' original 1998 counterparts. However, Bunny didn't last long, exploding in a flash of light.
Although there are a lot of differences stated above, fans of the original series thought she was a bad re-hash of her, and as such, kept comparing Bunny to Bliss. This was mostly due to Cartoon Network stating that she was the "4th Powerpuff Girl" in the promos for Power of Four.
She’s likely similiar to Tak from Invader Zim, both are tall, have blue hair (in Tak’s Disguise), both have a little friend of theirs (an elephant and a SIR Unit), both have their signature color, purple, and both are the same kind of the main protagonists.
The character is confirmed to be voiced by numerous 15 actresses in various regional airings. In the North American version, she is confirmed to be voiced by Olivia Olson, who played Marceline in
Adventure Time and Vanessa Doofenshmirtz in Phineas and Ferb, in the American version, South African singer Toya Delazy in the African version who has also covered an extended theme song of Powerpuff Girls in Africa, Australian YouTuber Wendy Ayche in the Australian and New Zealand version,and British singer and Britain's Got Talentjudge Alesha Dixon in the U.K. airings.
