Magenta as a Teen Titan.


Frances Kane met Wally West when he was seven. They grew up friends, but when she reached adulthood, she started to exhibit strange magnetic powers. Wally tried teaching her how to use them properly, and they fell in love. She never wanted superpowers, as she wanted to lead a normal life. For a short time, she served the Teen Titans as the super-heroine Magenta. She and Wally West were seeing each other for awhile, shortly after Wally had taken up the mantle of the Flash. She helped him battle Vandal Savage. After he won the lottery, he bought a mansion in Middle Hampton, Long Island, and asked her to live with him. However, things were moving too fast for her, and she moved out.


Magenta Former Villain turned Hero.

Central City

She re-surfaced much later, interrupting an important Central City Stars baseball game to get Wally's attention. Because of her powers, she had apparently built a dark personality for herself, complete with twisted memories of her time with Wally. After a battle in the stadium, Wally managed to convince her that he still had feelings for her, restoring her to her normal self. This episode obviously didn't help matters with Wally's current girlfriend, Linda Park. A little talk between her and Frances helped to mend some of the wounds.

Meanwhile, Wally, with the help of old friends Starfire and Nightwing, had been flushing the technomob Combine out of Keystone City. As a going away present, they had randomly transported a bomb somewhere in the city. Wally knew that their transportation system created great electromagnetic fields, fields that he knew Frances would be able to pick up. Once they found the bomb, however, Frances wasn't strong enough to pick it up. Wally was forced to enrage her, like she was at the baseball stadium, to give her the strength to get rid of the bomb. After this event, they came to terms that their relationship was over, and she left.

Keystone City

However, she did return, in a much nastier state of mind, to Keystone City. Wally had heard from the Titans that she had already been bothering them. She used her powers to send a giant rig driving crazily through the city, and constructed a magnetic forcefield to keep Wally out. She grabbed Linda, who was reporting the mayhem, and drew her into the forcefield. Since all Wally could do was remove obstacles in the path of the truck, it was up to Linda to make Frances realize that Wally was not responsible for her decisions, for who she was. In the nick of time, just before the truck was about to fall into a quarry, Frances let down the forcefield and Wally got them to safety. Frances then disappeared.
