Polaris, real name Lorna Dane, is the illegitimate daughter of the mutant terrorist Magneto. Gifted with the power to manipulate magnetic fields, Lorna is potentially as powerful as her father.
Lorna never knew her father, something her easily frightened mother intended to keep permanent. They moved frequently, with Lorna even dying her hair from time to time. She eventually discovered her mutant powers, and kept them hidden from her mother for fear of being shunned.
One day, she was contacted via phone by Quicksilver, and later came face-to-face with her father, Magneto, who needed her help to salvage a Kree ship and gain possession of its technology. She believed in her father's cause of "mutant liberation" and fought for him until her confrontation with the X-Men, during which Scarlet Witch reprimanded her and explained Magneto's terrible deeds. Lorna tearfully begged her father to deny the charges, but Magneto couldn't, and Lorna quickly changed sides and joined the X-Force, taking the name "Polaris", with her mother's approval.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Polaris posseses similar powers to her father, thus she's capable of generating and manipulating electromagnetic fields. Her powers, however, work somewhat differently as they run both electrical and magnetical forces. A side effect of her powers caused her hair to emit static electricity sparks, which repelled the hair dye she used to cover the green color.
