History: Ariel is an extraterrestrial native to the world known as the Coconut Grove, home of a culture devoted to the pursuit of pleasure. William Shakespeare based the character Ariel in his play The Tempest on one of her relatives, who was also named Ariel.

Ariel's race had reached an evolutionary stand still: no mutations had occurred in her race for millions of years. Seeking a means to advance the race's evolution, the leaders of the Coconut Grove assigned Ariel to go to Earth, a world on which superhuman mutants were appearing in great abundance, and bring a number of them back to her home planet in the hope that the factor in their bodies enabling them to mutate could be extracted.

On Earth, Ariel encountered the mutant criminal known as the Vanisher and joined his group of adolescents who worked for him as thieves. Eventually this group became the team of young superhumans known as the Fallen Angels. Using her ability to bend space. Ariel transported the Fallen Angels to a distant world, where they encountered Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy. Again through the use of Ariel's powers, the Fallen Angels returned to Earth, joined by Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy as new recruits to the team.

Finally, Ariel transported the Fallen Angels to her home planet, where they were captured. Ariel was upset, however, that one of the Fallen Angels, Chance, who had become her friend, was also made a prisoner. Then Ariel was taken captive as well after being identified as a mutant with a power that, within her race, only she possesses. This was the power to influence minds to compel others to do what she told them. After the Fallen Angels escaped captivity, Ariel used her power to compel Unipar, the leader of the Coconut Grove, to let them return to Earth.

Having changed her loyalties, Ariel accompanied the Fallen Angels to Earth and continues to be a member of the team

Strength Level: Ariel possesses the equivalent of the normal human strength of an Earth woman of her physical age, height, and build who engages in no regular exercise.

Known Superhuman Powers: Like all members of her extraterrestrial race, Ariel can bend space so that she can create a space warp connecting two points that may otherwise lie great distances apart. There are no known limits on the range that Ariel's space warps may cover; she has created warps that enabled her to travel over interstellar distance from one planet to another in distant solar system. However, Ariel needs an actual doorway that can be opened and closed to serve as a focal point for her power. In addition, there must be another doorway at the receiving end of the warp. By stepping through the doorway, one journeys through the space warp that she has created.

In addition, Ariel is the sole mutant member of her race, possessing the mutant ability to cause others through psionic means to believe what she says or to do what she tells them, whether they would otherwise voluntarily wish to do so or not.
