When Legion, the mentally unbalanced mutant son of Professor Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller, travelled back in time in an attempt to kill Magneto, he ended up killing Xavier instead, creating a splinter universe which became known as the Age Of Apocalypse.
In this reality, mutants became the dominant species of the planet. Apocalypse enslaved humanity.
Aurora and her brother Northstar were members of the EMF (Elite Mutant Force); a group of mutants ran by Sinister, a Horseman of Apocalypse.
Their role were effectively prison guards in an area known as The Pen, where human and mutant slaves were kept to be used in experiments by Sinister and his geneticist Henry McCoy, the Dark Beast.
When a traitor began smuggling slaves to freedom, Northstar and Aurora's patrol sectors were reassigned by Prelate Havok (Alex Summers), their superior. He gave them the task of monitoring the mutant Lorna Dane in order to catch the traitor unaware.
The traitor turned out to be Prelate Cyclops (Scott Summers), the leader of the EMF, who, upon discovering he had been found out, fought against the two, attacking Northstar with his mutant energy beam.
This enraged Aurora, who prepared to use her electric concussive powers against Cyclops, until she was knocked out by a large chunk of metal hurled towards her by the mutant powers of Dane.
Both Northstar and Aurora were comatose for many months, during which Apocalypse's empire was destroyed. Apocalypse was himself defeated and seemingly killed.
With the Elite Mutant Force disbanded, Northstar and Aurora went on the run to Canada, where they were eventually hunted down and killed by the man known as Weapon X, the former X-Man Logan Howlett and his daughter Kiara.
Concussive Blasts: Aurora has the ability to send out powerful concussive blasts that have been shown to do considerable damage. She has been shown to send out blasts so powerful that they completly incinerated a human being.
Durability: As a side effect of partially robbing her molecules of their atomic motion, the binding forces within and between the molecules increase. This enhances the sheer toughness of Aurora's entire body. This effect gives her skin enough durability to withstand the ravages of wind, friction and air turbulence.
Flashbang: While in contact with each other, Aurora and her brother Northstar could could combine their mutant abilities to emit bursts of light of a million candles bright.
Lightning: AoA Aurora has the ability to sent out lightning blasts, much like the 616 version. A hint to the source of this power was revealed when she stated, "with every last volt of electricity coursing through my body--I'll make you regret--"
Reflexes: Aurora has heightened reflexes, however, the full extent of her reflexes in this reality were never shown.
Speed: Through an act of concentration, Aurora can channel a portion of the kinetic energy of the atomic motion in her body's molecules in a single direction. This can accelerate her body in a velocity in direct proportion to the amount of kinetic energy she has tapped. She is capable of going 99% of the speed of light, but is limited due to the fact that she would sustain great damage to herself and the environment if she reached that sort of speed. She can safely go Mach 10 without causing any damage. She can also accelerate parts of her body, such as punching a target a hundred times in a less than a second (a feat Northstar can do that has even hurt the Hulk).
