Magnetic Manipulation: Using her power of magnetism, Magenta can produce a number of magnetic effects. She can manipulate, repel or attract metal objects of varying sizes. Naturally, the more metal is in an object the easier it is for her to affect magnetically. This can range from small things like iron in peoples blood to as big as building structures. The more metal she needs or wants to use the more pressure it is on her.
Frances "Frankie" Kane grew up in Blue Valley, Nebraska and became a close friend of Wally West, the third Flash. Kane's power emerged one night while she, her father and brother were driving on a narrow mountain road. When her powers went out of control, the car fell off a cliff, and Kane's father and brother were killed. Frances' superstitious mother believed her daughter was possessed by the devil and spurned her. With the help of Wally and the Teen Titans, Frances was able to gain some control over her powers, and the two became lovers in college.
Whenever Kane's powers emerged, however, she would "split" into a second, evil identity known as Magenta. Despite having helped the Teen Titans and the Flash in their fight against villainy, Magenta has fought the Flash as an enemy on more than one occasion.
