The full extent of her powers are unrevealed (see comments).

History:

(The Phoenix Resurrection: Aftermath (fb) - BTS) - Discovering Earth held the Theta Virus that spawned superhumans but was lethal to their own race, the alien Progeny dispatched a massive armada to raze and destroy the Earth. It arrived almost five decades later, killing billions of humans, including most superhumans ("ultras") with only a handful surviving, including the technomancer Technomantra.

(The Phoenix Resurrection: Aftermath) - The alien-human hybrid Foxfire, considered one of Earth's last hopes and brought back through time, was introduced to the remaining Earth forces under the command of President Glorianna Mundi. Foxfire revealed the treachery of adviser the Entity, who teleported away. A main assault was quickly mounted against Progeny forces in near orbit around the Earth led by Night Man, but met with incredibly high losses, although it was actually a diversion for a smaller assault team. Shortly after the main attack, Technomantra conjured the commando team (including Foxfire) directly onto the mothership. Intense fighting, with Technomantra able to fell an armored Progeny warrior with a single blast, allowed Foxfire to reach the command center and set off detonations. The Progeny threat ended, the surviving Earth forces, including Technomantra, returned to the planet surface, feeling positive about the future.

So is Technomantra a continuation of Mantra (Eden Blake), now merged with technomancy (it looks that way)? If so, does she have any link left to Lukasz or Archimage? The Godwheel included living machines, so perhaps this is a merging of Eden Blake with a machine warrior? (And what's with the early Motley Crue hairstyle? Can these act as cables?) Is this new form an outcome of fighting the Progeny? Could it even have something to do with Tech (Lela Cho) of the Solution, who had wetware enhancements? This was in the closing months of the Ultraverse, with many people involved in a rush to get the books out, so it's a pity her background story was not fleshed out more.
