Jonathan Darque was a legend in engineering circles who ran his own mining company using innovative methods and machinery to gather the earth's treasures more abundantly and efficiently than ever before. Darque saw himself as being essential to helping the USA meet its energy demands, but he found himself the subject of increasing numbers of protestors who opposed the scorched, barren earth he left in his wake. Darque ignored the protestors and continued his work until his wife, who meant more to him than even progress was killed in a car wreck while swerving to avoid demonstrators at one of his excavation sites. Soon after, a class action suit was filed against his company. Darque lost and was ordered to permanently close down all operations. Darque swore to use his greatest remaining resource, his mind, to gain vengeance on the ignorant society that had done this to him. Darque designed a costume and special weaponry to become Magma and recruited a number of agents to assist him.
