Amara Juliana Olivia Aquilla (Magma)
Amara is super sweet, but sometimes a little naive, due to her sheltered upbringing. But she always tries, and is a fan of trying new things, and very open to what America has to offer. She has a somewhat haughty, "royal" attitude at times, and is easily discouraged when she does not live up to her own expectations.
She also gets along with her best friend Boom Boom.
Amara is an African-American teenager with long chocolate brown hair and a tanned skin complexion.
When she is not training she wears a purple shirt under a white jean jacket, purple pants and white shoes.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Amara is a mutant with geothermal powers. These grant her the ability to control the movement of the earth and tectonic plates, even to the extent of causing seismic upheaval. She can also call fourth molten rock from the earth's core, producing projectiles composed of lava or miniature volcanoes. Amara can generate intense heat and flame capable of melting steel. Her powers also render her immune to intense heat as seen in the episode Cruise Control when she actually jumped into the lava of an active volcano taking control of it and preventing it from exploding. She then swam out of the lava with no harm or discomfort at all. When using her powers, Magma typically assumes an energized form that emits intense light and heat.
Her weakness, however, is a physical need to always remain in touch with the ground. Without being in touch with the earth after a time, it causes her to loose her powers as well as suffer nausea and headaches.
Amara's entire adolescent life was spent on an island (Nova Roma) that was completely hidden from the rest of the world. As time and technology moved forward, her homeland did not. She is still learning to understand present-day technology (i.e. electricity, cars, computers, etc...).
She was the only daughter to the King of Nova Roma, and at times acts like a little princess. Amara will often cover her lack of understanding with a "better than you" attitude, but she is truly a very good person. Amara is able to generate huge amounts of heat. When powered up she takes on a fire like appearance. She is also able to control lava and volcanoes. At some point, Amara went to the Xavier Mansion to be part of the New Mutants, a younger generation of mutants who were to eventually help and possibly replace the X-Men.
