Arcanna is a sorceress who can innately control natural forces. For example, she flies and levitates by manipulating wind. Arcanna can make potent illusions, possibly by altering light. Arcanna can also fire bolts of magical energy.

Arcanna originally worked as a medium. After marrying Philip Jones, she decided to support her family by working as a professional crimefighter. Her husband stayed home to raise their children.

Arcanna's success as a crime fighter came to the attention of the Squadron Supreme, who asked her to join. She was present when both the Squadron and Defenders battled Overmind and Null the Living Darkness. Arcanna was pregnant when the Squadron embarked on its Utopia Program. She hid this fact so that the Squadron would not ask her to take on a less active role. As her pregnancy developed, she used her illusion powers to conceal the change in her figure.

When the Squadron battled Nighthawk and his Redeemers, Arcanna suddenly went into labor. the Shape abandoned the battle to rush her to the hospital, where baby Benjamin Thomas Jones was delivered.

While meeting Professor Imam, the aged 'Wizard Supreme' stated that her son Benjamin would succeed him one day. Benjamin's powers emerged when helping the Squadron against the Nth Man.

While the Squadron was exiled to 616, Arcanna began using the Moonglow name.
