Frances Kane met Wally West when he was seven. They grew up friends, but when she reached adulthood, she started to exhibit strange magnetic powers. Wally tried teaching her how to use them properly, and they fell in love. As for her powers, she never really wanted them, wanting just to lead a normal life. For a while, she served with the Teen Titans as the super-heroine Magenta.
Magnetic Manipulation: Using her power of magnetism, Francine can produce a number of magnetic effects. She can manipulate, repel or attract metal objects of varying sizes. Naturally, the more metal is in an object the easier it is for her to affect magnetically. This can range from small things like iron in peoples blood to as big as building structures. The more metal she needs or wants to use the more pressure it is on her.
