When Magma was vacationing in South America, she met Antonio, a mutant-pyrokinetic like her. They were together for two weeks until Magma's vacation was over. She tried to convince Antonio to go with her to the Xavier Institute, but he refused, and convinced her to spend an extra week together. Four days later, they both leapt from a helicopter into the La Cumbre volcano, deep into the lava flow, and just at that moment the Decimation occurred. Antonio lost his powers and was consumed alive by the extreme heat, dying almost immediately. Magma went crazy and blew up the volcano.
Former Powers: He is believed to have similar powers to Magma:
- Geokinesis: He could psionically control the movement of the tectonic plates within the Earth's crust within limited areas, probably no less than a radius of a few city blocks. Within this area he can create small or large earthquakes by psionically affecting the Earth's crust.
- Pyrokinesis: He could create flames and project blasts of heat that do not contain any molten rock. However, he apparently prefers to fire magma blasts rather than simple heat blasts, perhaps because the magma blasts have a solid impact that can knock down a target. The highest level of heat that Antonio can generate is not yet known, but it is believed that he can reach at least 850° Fahrenheit or higher.
- Geo-thermokinesis: He could psionically cause magma, or molten rock, from far beneath Earth's surface to rise to and break through the surface, forming miniature volcanoes. He could also telekinetically project fiery blasts of magma at targets. Apparently he does so by turning nearby rock molten and then telekinetically hurling it at his target.
- Magma Form: When using his powers Antonio's body shines with intense light and gives off tremendous heat. His hair seems to be a fiery mohawk. Neither his own heat nor heat from any other known source can burn or otherwise harm Antonio. Although Antonio has triggered small earth tremors without taking on his glowing form, he has never been seen to use his power to fire lava blasts while in his ordinary human appearance. Antonio is not blinded by the light he gives off in his shining form and is immune to the dangerous effects of flame and heat while in it. This ability can also be called geo-thermokinesis.
- Antonio's surname is unknown, but comicvine states that his surname is Argent.
