Magnetism is a strong force that attracts or repels certain types of metals, such as steel. Magnets, such as the Shamon U, are conductors of magnetism. The super power in which one can control magnetism is called magnetic manipulation.
Kolbar's solar robot used magnetism to move the Earth closer to the sun. But when the SDI recruit a scientist named Von Knowalot to discover what is happening, that is, why the Earth is getting hot he learns its' being pulled closer to the sun by magnetism. He finds a way to create a repelling wave of magnetism by having Flash run around the world at super speed with a coil of copper wire. Because of this, Kolbar activates the solar robot's quadratronic nth-degree charge.
