Although she was at first reluctant, Amanda soon came to accept her new task and she took on the codename Magik II to confuse her many enemies into thinking her to be Illyana Rasputin, a former ruler of the place. As many magical spells need to be cast against a certain person, the confusion about her true identity could be a great advantage.










It was during this time that Amanda was forced to thwart Belasco and the N’Garai’s take over of Limbo, and Earth, where she was forced to conceal her identity from her closest friends, until the end of the battle where those who had not already worked out that she was not Illyana, learned of Amanda’s new role. Following that, Amanda rallied together the rulers of all other various dimensions of Hell to unite them in a common goal – the preservation of Hell.



Amanda has also mastered to magically control the stepping disks of Limbo, just like Belasco did before her, and practiced to wield the Soul Sword. So far she seems to be doing a better job as Limbo’s guardian than her namesake. [X-Men Black Sun 1-5, X-Men Magik 1-4]


After Nightcrawler took the unofficial and unwanted job as the X-Men's resident link to the supernatural, he consulted his former lover, Amanda, several times for her magical advice. [Nightcrawler (3rd series) #2-4, 6] During one of his trips to Limbo, she secretly hid the powerful Soulsword in Kurt’s body, thinking it was safe there since his soul was pure and unpolluted. There was a shift in the cosmic balance, powerful forces at work, and one thing they were after was the Soulsword, and indeed not much later, Amanda was attacked and overpowered by Nightmare. She was rescued by the timely arrival of her mother Margali, and together, mother and daughter found out that Nightmare had been manipulated into attacking them by someone else. Amanda and Margali immediately sought out Nightcrawler to warn him, but upon their arrival the demon Hive revealed himself and took over the body of Nightcrawler’s teammate, Wolverine. Eventually, the demon’s essence was disrupted by the Soulsword, though not before he revealed that there is a major war coming, one that has been brewing for a millennia, and that the entire Szardos family factor very importantly into it. [Nightcrawler (3rd series) #9-11] Obviously, danger still looms on the horizon for Amanda.
