Magik (Marvel)(01 - Illyana Rasputin)
Real Name: Illyana Rasputin
Search for 'Magik (Marvel)(01 - Illyana Rasputin)' on Amazon


Powers:
Magik had the mutant power to teleport through time and space by creating portals into the pocket dimension Otherplace. The greater the distance over which she teleported, the greater the possible margin of error in both space and time.

Magik was also a powerful sorceress whose powers were at their peak whilst in Limbo. Whilst in Earth’s dimension, her magical abilities were more limited, to astral projection, sensing mystical presences, and summoning her Soulsword.

Bio:
The younger sister of the X-Man Colossus, Illyana came to live with her brother after being kidnapped by the eccentric assassin Arcade. Months later, the sorcerer Belasco captured Illyana and held her prisoner in the pocket dimension Otherplace, a.k.a. Limbo. Belasco turned a portion of her soul demonic in nature, and in the process conjured a “bloodstone” gem from her soul. When Belasco conjured five such gems, Illyana, who would have transformed into the entirely demonic Darkchilde, would serve as the means by which Belasco’s demon masters, Chthon and the N’Garai, could conquer Earth.


Belasco’s spell gave Illyana considerable magical power, and she nearly killed him, but decided not to give in to her demonic side and drove him from Otherplace, becoming its new leader. Illyana returned to Earth at a point only seconds after the X-Men’s escape from Otherplace. However, whereas only seconds had passed for the X-Men, Illyana had aged seven years in Otherplace and was now 13 years old. She then joined the team of superhuman mutant trainees the New Mutants as Magik.
Belasco’s former servant S’ym later seized control of Otherplace and spearheaded an invasion of Earth. In an effort to defeat him, Illyana retroactively erased her existence as Magik by using her mutant powers to alter time, and as a result the invasion effectively never took place. Illyana emerged from the enchantment as her younger self, possessing no magical abilities and having a pure soul. Ultimately, Illyana contracted the deadly mutant-killing Legacy Virus and died. It was later revealed that her eldest brother Mikhail had actually given her the Virus after the past New Mutants travelled into the future to meet their present-day counterparts.
