* AscendedExtra: Before this story, Illyana Rasputin was just Colossus' sister who was playing in the farm, just about to be crushed by a runaway tractor, and then saved by the mutant who can turn his body into steel. She came to live with the X-Men when Ms. Locke, TheDragon to villain Arcade, kidnapped the X-Men's loved ones to blackmail them into rescuing her boss from Doctor Doom. After all that was dealt with, the political climate in Russia would have made things awkward if they returned to drop her back off.

''Magik'' was a 1984 limited series of 4 comic books, featuring the AscendedExtra Illyana Rasputin (sister of the X-Man Colossus). During ''X-Men'' 160, the team was trapped in AnotherDimension ruled by the dark lord Belasco. When the team managed to escape at the end of the story, Belasco and Kitty waged a tug-of-war over Illyana. Kitty lost her for a second but got her back and pulled her through, only to be faced with a teenager. For the X-Men it was a moment, for Illyana it was seven years.

Some time later, Illyana's mutant power awakens: she can control the teleporting discs that are all around limbo. But, initially, she can not control the destination, which could be anywhere and anytime. She falls into limbo's past and saw and old battle of Belasco and Storm: she killed him, and became a demon like him. It was not actually him, but a figure of him, and by his murder she became a demon (it would take her several years, up to her old age, to be good again). Another disc, and Illyana returns to the castle. There, Storm fights again against Belasco, but Cat kills her from the back. Illyana kills Cat, and foils Belasco's plan with the dying Storm. This time she could summon a teleporting disc at will, and take Storm's corpse to her garden, to bury her. But then, it becomes cold and the plants begin to die: it was a magic garden, and without Storm to mantain it, it is left to become one with the rest of Limbo. To punish her, Belasco removed Illyana's power over the discs, and left her in the wild, alone. She tries, on her own, to repeat Storm's magcal feats, but failed each time. Then, she changes her mind: rather than life, she tries to create a weapon. She returns to Belasco's castle and began to fight him; during the fight she became red, with horns and a demoniac tail, while Belasco gets human again.
