Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Agatha Harkness is a witch and possesses a great mastery of the mystic arts. She derives her powers from manipulation of the forces of magic. She has the ability to manipulate magical forces for a number of effects, including teleportation, energy projection, and the tapping of extra-dimensional energy by invoking entities or objects of power existing in dimensions tangential to Earth's through the recitation of spells. She also has the abilities of mesmerism, thought-casting, and illusion-casting. Agatha Harkness's age reduces her ability to perform strenuous physical tasks. Also, Agatha Harkness has a gifted intellect, and a vast knowledge of magical lore.
Agatha Harkness has some connections to the Salem Witch Trials, during which time she and several of her cohorts (true witches) escaped the Puritan persecution and settled in a protected location somewhere in the Rocky Mountains to the west. Agatha Harkness has extended her life by the use of her magic, and has been instrumental in the teaching of other witches in her Coven. She also became friends with Mystique at one point.
