Explanation of the conversion: Firestar's Multipower represents the various tricks she's pulled with her microwave field, from reheating pizza to knocking out electrical devices. The two extra dice of Energy Blast that are only usable in space are because she's been shown to be able to tap into radiation in space making her own powers increase.
History: After discovering her powers, Angel was sent by her father to the Massachusetts Academy and joined the White Queen's Hellions (Firestar #1).
She was trained in the use of her powers by the White Queen and met Cannonball II of the New Mutants at a dance. She got her first kiss from him (Firestar #2).
She was emotionally manipulated into falling in love with and serving Empath (X-Men #193).
After learning the truth about the intent of the White Queen she left them and returned home (Firestar #4).
The New Warriors then aided Thor in his battle with the Juggernaut (Mighty Thor #411-412).
The New Warriors fought the Mad Thinker and his ally Primus (New Warriors #4).
They fought Star Thief II, and along side Marvel Boy II and Namorita were lunched into space by Stane International. She learned Marvel Boy II's secret identity (New Warriors #5).
In space they met up with the Inhumans. She teamed up with Black Bolt and Star Thief II in stopping the Stane International rocket filled with toxic waste (New Warriors #6).
The Warriors then fought the Force of Nature in a Brazilian Jungle and she rescued Speedball's mother (New Warriors #7-9).
The New Warriors were then attacked by the White Queen and her Hellions, but the Hellions were defeated (New Warriors #10).
Angel teamed up with Strong Guy of X-Factor II during the Infinity Crusade in the heroes assault on Paradise Omega. There she confronted Puck of Alpha Fight who was under control of the Goddess and defeated him (Web of Spider-Man #106).
Angel participated in the assault on the home of the Gamesmaster in the Alps where the Gamesmaster mind controlled her into attacking Cable, Domino II and Night Thrasher. Night Thrasher knocked her out with cayenne spray (New Warriors #46).
Firestar and the other New Warriors teamed up with the Thunderbolts, Heroes For Hire, Spider-Man, Darkhawk, the Swordsman and Magdalene in protecting the city from the Elements of Doom II. She was flattered to learn that the Thunderbolt's newest member, Jolt II, was a fan of hers (Thunderbolts #8).
Firestar and Justice II, formerly Marvel Boy, were among the heroes who were captured by Morgan Le Fay and mind controlled into becoming her personal guard, the Queen's Vengeance. While under her control she went by the name Lady Comet. She was eventually freed and helped defeat her (Avengers III #2-3).
Justice II and Firestar were accepted as members of the Avengers, which had been one of Justice II's long held dreams. Firestar just went along to be with him. Dr. Henry Pym, also known as Giant-Man, did a study of her powers and came up with a special suit that stimulates her natural immunity to radiation so that using her powers wouldn't harm her. In a mistaken attempt to rescue Hawkeye from the Thunderbolts she battled Songbird and with the Avengers and Thunderbolts battled Dominex (Avengers III #12).
Alongside Justice II and the Vision II she unsuccessfully attempted to subdue Wolverine when he was possessed by an alien and went on a rampage (Wolverine #134).
Justice II and Firestar supposedly retired from active Avengers duty to spend quality time together, but were actually sent to spy on the religious organization the Triune Understanding.
She was among the heroes incapacitated by Graviton when he attempted to take over the Earth once again (Thunderbolts #57).
Note: In the alternate time line depicted in New Warriors #11 to #13 Firestar was a member of the mutant underground lead by Magneto.
Trivia: The character of Firestar first appeared in the Saturday morning cartoon Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. The show was originally supposed to have the Human Torch II in it, but they decided to change him to a female character, and Firestar was born.
Powers: Angel has the ability to generate microwave radiation and use it for a number of different purposes. Most commonly she uses it to fire energy blasts, form a protective aura around herself and to fly. She can also use it to disrupt electrical and mental powers. In outer space she has proved to be even more powerful than on Earth.
