- No, it's how I hide my powers. But where I'm going, I'll never have to do that again. I can finally stop pretending to be something I'm not.

Karolina Dean's origin is the same as that of her Earth-616's counterpart.
Powers and Abilities
Because of her Majesdanian physiology, Karolina has powers common to others of her species including:
- Solar Energy Manipulation: She is able to absorb solar radiation and convert it into a unique energy type which she can manipulate for various uses. Karolina's powers are stronger related to her exposure to sunlight. It is possible this is absorption of some sort of cosmic energy. She is able to store the solar energy in every cell of her body, even her blood.
- Bio-luminescent: In her natural state, Karolina's skin and hair are luminescent with a shimmering, rainbow-colored light of solar radiation. Originally, Karolina was unable to control this vibrant appearance, and required her medical alert bracelet to suppress this ability. With practice, Karolina was able to appear human without her bracelet.
- Light Energy Blasts: Karolina can also project the solar energy in a beam of variable intensity and diameter, from a wide concussive blast to a thin laser-like cutting beam.
- Force Fields: She can control the projected energy to a limited degree forming defensive/protective shields/barriers or to create restraints.
- Heat Manipulation: Karolina can both withstand extremely high temperatures and emit warmth.
- Flight: Karolina is able to propel herself into the air leaving a rainbow-like trail behind. The upper limits of her speed have yet to be determined. She is also able to carry others while flying.
- Enhanced Strength: Karolina also appears to be stronger than an average human.
- Solar Energy Dependent: Excessive use of her powers drain her stored solar energy reserves. In daylight, the depletion is negligible given that she is constantly replacing the used energy. At night, it is possible for her to completely use up her stored energy and not have access to any special abilities until she is again exposed to sunlight.
