Through power of will, light herself ablaze. In this form, Firestar is lighter than air and can fly. She can also hurl flame projectiles.
In the Ultimate Marvel continuity, Liz Allan goes to the same high school with Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson. She is close friends with Mary Jane. In Ultimate Spider-Man #4 (February 2001), a drunk Liz attempts to make out with Peter, who refuses her advances when Mary Jane sees them. They later have a very personal moment when both students are called to talk about The Green Goblin's attack on the school. Otherwise, there is no instance of any relationship between Peter and Liz. Liz had an uncle who was a mutant, and this led to his death, though what exactly happened has not been explained. (The Official Handbook of the Ultimate Marvel Universe suggested that her uncle may have been killed in Magneto's attacks during Ultimate X-Men, but Bendis has never commented on it.) As a result of this, Liz has a phobia of mutants and super-powered beings, and it has been suggested by other characters that she worries that she herself is a mutant. When Johnny Storm joined her school briefly, she became extremely attracted to him and they shared a happy date - until he accidentally lit himself on fire, revealing himself as the Human Torch. Due to her phobia, she refused to see him ever again, and he left the school.
With the arrival of Kitty Pryde, a publicly known mutant & former X-Man, at Midtown High, Liz has been complaining to anyone that will listen that Kitty should be with her "own kind" and even accused Kitty of thinking she was better than everyone else due to her being a former X-Man, at which point Kitty rebutted Liz's accusations. Liz's best friend, Mary Jane, has also told Liz to keep her mutant phobia to herself when she's around MJ, and that she'd prefer it if Liz kept those thoughts to herself in general.
Later it was revealed Liz herself is a mutant with flame powers, and also the secret love child of mutant villain the Blob. In order to learn how to control her powers, Liz decided to attend Xavier's school where she now remains.
The Ultimate version of this character is not an alternate identity of the regular Marvel character as the Ultimate universe is a distinct reality.
