    Astra was recruited by Magneto to be in his original Brotherhood of Evil Mutants but when her affections for him were not returned she left the group and swore revenge. She used her powers to travel across the universe and collected many different alien technologies which could aid her in her task. Once Magneto was rendered comatose by Xavier and Asteroid M destroyed, she retrieved him restored his memories and cloned him in order to create Joseph, a more powerful and younger version of Magneto. She commanded Joseph to attack Magneto, but when Magneto was about to lose he used his helmet to hit Joseph´s head leading him to an amnesic state. Joseph escaped from Astra, but was found later by Sister Maria de la Joya, who took care of him.

    Astra appeared again some time later in order to recover his creaton, so she abducted the new renewed Joseph and showed him how he was conceived to be the new Magneto.
