Fictional biography

The Elementals are four extradimensional humanoids who became immortals with power over natural forces and ruled a kingdom on Earth before the rise of the original Atlantis. They are Hydron, lord of the waters; Magnum, master of the earth; Hellfire, wielder of flame; and Zephyr, mistress of the winds. The Elementals used N'Kantu, the Living Mummy as a pawn against the Living Monolith to obtain the Ruby Scarab from them. However, Zephyr betrayed the other Elementals and allied with N'Kantu. The Elementals attacked Zephyr, the Living Mummy, and their allies and gained the Scarab from them. When the Elementals tried to release their energies through the Scarab, they were blasted off Earth.[1]

The Elementals were later returned to Earth and pursued Zephyr and the Scarab, coming into conflict with the entity Hecate. Taking Zephyr hostage, Hellfire and Hydron forced her allies to recover the Scarab. Ms. Marvel arrived and together with Hecate, fought the Elementals, defeating them one by one.[2]

During the 2008 — 2009 "Dark Reign" storyline, Quasimodo researched the Elementals alongside other villains for Norman Osborn. He speculated that they could be aliens from the Axi-Tun or the Horusians.[3]

The Elementals were later captured by the Collector, save for Zephyr.[4]
