Maxima

Do you want to move metal, manipulate metal, manipulate iron?

Today, we talk about an interesting power. Called ferrokinesis.

Ferrokinesis is the ability to manipulate metal. It is different from magnetism which is the super power to manipulate magnetic fields. Dr. Polaris from DC comics has the power of manipulating magnetic fields.

User can create, shape and manipulate metal, a solid material (an element, compound, or alloy) that is typically hard, shiny, and features good electrical and thermal conductivity. Metals are generally malleable—they can be hammered or pressed permanently out of shape without breaking or cracking—as well as fusible (able to be fused or melted) and ductile (able to be drawn out into a thin wire).

Maxima, is a case of a character with the super power of ferrokinesis. Maxima was an imperial ruler on Almerac who sought to continue of the Almeracian tradition of inter-racial breeding with other worlds.

When Sazu, her handmaiden, intercepted a “subspace transmission” of the gladiatoral feats of Superman on Mongul’s Warworld, Maxima sought him as his mate. Superman resisted her advances and Maxima became his enemy. (Maxima)

As the peak of Almeracian gene pool, Maxima possesses various super powers such as super strength, flight, super speed, optical force beams, ferrokinesis, matter manipulation, illusion casting, force field projection, teleportation, mind bolts, enhanced empathy.

Maxima has exhibited immense telekinetic control over metals at the molecular level. She can cause metal to melt with a thought, or rearrange the molecules of scraps into anything she chooses, such as weapons or armor.

In Justice League America No. 73, Dr. Destiny was responsible for making several Justice League members act very much out of character. The rogue heroes were capturing, torturing, and maiming super-villains. When one of the prison ships that they were using to capture super-villains attacked Maxima, she focused her ferrokinesis into a beam, and disassembled the ship into its separate components without incinerating the men inside. Later, in the same story-arc told in Justice League America No. 75, Maxima directed this ability on the Red Tornado, easily pulling him apart.

Super powers are the new thing! We must be willing to develop our super powers and believe that we all have the super power of moving metal, or at least, that we can affect metal with technology. We simply have to work at it! And apply our God-given talents!

      1. Hi Lucie,

        Thank you for the comment. Yes, I think that the comic book is a fantastic medium. I am trying to revamp the website to make it more interactive and allow for more fan participation. There are some directions I am trying to go with. It should take me a couple of weeks!

        Have a good day!

    • Hi gambling,

      HTML and CSS coding do help. So does JavaScript knowledge to write scripts. But for the most part, all the site functionality, design and layout is already in WordPress. You do not really need any coding experience. Thanks for your question and comment.

      Thank you and have a great weekend!

  2. Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few
    of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why
    but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers
    and both show the same outcome.
