Magma believed that she was the daughter of Lucius Antonius Aquilla, First Senator of Nova Roma, a hidden city in the Amazon jungles of Brazil. She also believed that as a child she had studied that in the First Century, BC a large number of the citizens of ancient Rome foresaw that its republican government would be supplanted by an imperial one. Therefore, they fled Rome and sailed to the New World, eventually founding Nova Roma in the Amazon Jungles. The people of Nova Roma intermarried with the Incas, many of whom fled there after the Spanish conquered their land. The Incan civilization had been an absolute monarchy and in recent years a faction arose in Nova Roma that wanted to transform it into a monarchy in the style of Incan government.
Senator Lucius Aquilla was the leader of the opposition to this faction that wished to turn Nova Roma into an imperial state. Senator Aquilla sent his daughter Amara to live in the jungles outside Nova Roma, disguised as an Indian, to save her from the Black Priestess and her Fire Cult, who dealt in human sacrifice. Later, the senator discovered that the Black Priestess was actually the immortal mutant Selene, wife of Senator Marcus Domitius Gallio, the leader of the Imperial faction.
Amara remained in hiding for years until she was captured by the New Mutants, who were on an expedition in the Amazon jungle (see New Mutants). They learned of her disguise, but then both Amara and the New Mutants were captured by soldiers of Nova Roma and imprisoned. Now held prisoner by Selene, Amara was to be sacrificed. Selene used her mutant powers to drain Amara’s life energy into her own body. The New Mutant named Mirage attacked Selene. This distraction caused Selene to release Amara from her control, but Selene knocked Amara into the pit of lava.
Somehow, rather than harming Amara, her immersion in the lava awakened her latent mutant powers. Together, Amara, with her new-found powers, and the New Mutants defeated Selene and helped thwart Senator Gallio’s attempt to kill Senator Aquilla and seize power. Amara was instructed to go to the United States with the New Mutants and there learn about modern civilization. Amara did so and became a member of the New Mutants under the code-name Magma.
Amara later left the New Mutants and joined the Hellions, and then returned to South America with the Hellion member called Empath. Amara sensed something was different about her homeland and its people but could not discern what was worrying her.
Later, all of the remaining members of the Hellions were killed by Trevor Fitzroy. Warpath, joined by Firestar and Cannonball, who were all once members of the Hellions, went to South America to tell Amara and Empath of the death of their former teammates. While there, they discovered that Amara and all the people of this city had been living a lie. The city had not been founded by ancient Roman settlers. Instead, it was populated by the kidnapped and mind-wiped victims of the mutant sorceress Selene. She had created the city as a testament to the times she loved most and desperately wanted to relive. The people of Nova Roma started to regain their memories and Amara was told that her name was Allison Crestmere and that she was a mutant of British descent.
Empath is now in the process of returning all the people of Nova Roma back to their lives. As for Allison, she has since returned to her true family and it is unknown if she will ever return as the mutant hero known as Magma.
