History: Ashley Wilkes is a sweet, quiet girl with a very slight build. Some might even call her frail in appearance. However, looks can be deceiving. Although she lacks the strength for competitive gymnastics, she is an accomplished dancer. Most importantly, she was born to mutant parents. Her father has the ability to project energy and her mother can control magnetic forces. Ashley Wilkes inherited both traits, although the magnetic control she received from her mother is the more pronounced ability. The Wilkes warned their daughter that she should keep her mutant heritage a secret. Ashley has obliged them so far.

Wanting to keep her word to her parents, Ashley decided to secretly become Ms. Magnetism, a costumed super-hero. She teamed up with the Protectors as they faced the global threat from the Leader and his orbital space weapon. After the crisis was over, Major Darkstar announced that he was forming a new super-group, Retribution. Ms. Magnetism is currently considering joining Major Darkstar and Retribution.

Known superhuman powers: Ms. Magnetism can manipulate magnetic lines of force, thereby moving and controlling metallic objects. She can easily control hundred of pounds of material and probably close to one ton with extreme effort. Ms. Magnetism can generate and project energy beams from her hands. Despite her somewhat frail appearance, she is quite hardy and can survive in almost any hostile environment for a short period of time (up to one minute or so).
Limitations: Despite the fact that Ms. Magnetism can generate energy, she has an allergy to certain forms generated by other sources. Her parents warned her that she should be careful to avoid any exposure to forms of pure energy. It could prove fatal.
Abilities: Wilkes is an extremely intelligent woman and is currently completing her college studies. She has been studying genetics and is considered a top student. She is very lithe and limber and has received accolades for her acrobatic style in numerous dance competitions. As a personal hobby, she has studied and practiced mesmerism and hypnosis. She has the skills to be a hypnotherapist and has considered that as a fallback career.
