Im going to attempt this guys...Help me out.


Polaris' mutant powers, which were originally dormant, enabled her to sense and control magnetism, including manipulating metals which are susceptible to that force. She can also manipulate the Earth's magnetic field to allow herself to fly, generate magnetic energy pulses and create force-fields. She has bright green hair, the first indication of her mutation. At first, she dyed her hair brown to hide this. In recent comics she appears with her characteristic green hair.

Earlier in her history, Polaris lost her magnetism power, but gained the ability to absorb negative emotions from the environment and use it as strength, endurance, invulnerability, and increased size. She also became more violent during this time, presumably because of the negative emotions she was storing within. Those around her also became more volatile and aggressive. Under the Shadow King's influence, the range of this effect was vastly increased, reaching at least from Scotland to Egypt.

Polaris was among the mutants depowered by Scarlet Witch during the House of M storyline, and as such no longer possesses her natural mutant powers. However, due to Apocalypse's recent manipulations, a strange technology was hardwired into her nervous system (as well as her skull and spine) which artificially replicated her natural magnetic abilities. The limits of her new techno-magnetic powers are unknown, but Lorna has said they bear a resemblance of the power she used to possess and they are more dangerous and harder for her to control. In Uncanny X-Men #476, she is referred to as one of the biggest threats of the current team by the opposing Shi'ar Imperial Shockers, cybernetic guards.

As the Horseman Pestilence, Lorna has shown the ability to ingest virulent diseases without harm, absorbing their traits, and according to Apocalypse is able to spread a "meta-plague" that will kill anyone who has not been inoculated with the virus' vaccine, the Blood of Apocalypse.

Polaris uses her powers to manipulate Vulcan's armor, which was made of Shi'ar metals.

She continues to use her powers to hurt Vulcan, who is arguably the most powerful Mutant the X-Men have ever faced.

Just some metal manipulation. Forming a peice to a battery to Jumpstart their Shi'ar Ship.

Pretty cool. Not as strong as Onslaught or anything though.

Polaris is able to generate a forcefield easily able to withstand a blast from Havok (who is fairly strong.)

Here Polaris uses her powers, to slow down the blood flow of everyone in attendance with powers, causing them to faint (Even Jean eek! )

Here is a very impressive feat. Lorna is able to focus on the traces of metal that resides in ice, and use it to shatter the ice, after Iceman attacks her. Then she reverses his blood flow as well, causing him to faint.

Here she uses her powers once again, to flip Havoks blood flow, only this time, she is aiming to kill.

This is an interesting one. She is able to form and reshape silverware, around her body. To look like Magneto's armor. ( Even changes the color of it)

some great Polaris pics

Lorna leads the Genoshan Army and wipes out much of the human resistance.

Magneto and Lorna's power resonates as one.

Lorna kicking the a$$ of the Avengers.

Lorna on Genosha and then punking out Wolverine, Pietro, Wanda, and Xavier.

Lorna willing to kill even when it was much more taboo in the Silver Age

The best Polaris scene from Emperor Vulcan. Lorna killing several thousand Shi'ar by blowing up one of their Destoryers.

bumped, deserves more recognition, and should probably be added too, if anyone's up to it...
