Element Superhero- Magnesium
Ashley O'Connor pd.4

Isotope in Nature
One magnesium found in nature has a mass number of 26. (25.9825937). This isotope is used to study the absorption and metabolism of Mg in the human body.
This isotope has 14 neutrons.
Neutral Atoms
1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2
Location on the Periodic Table
Fun Facts
1.) Our bodies need a certain amount of magnesium in order for us to sleep properly. Too much or too little of it can cause sleep disturbances.
2.) Magnesium is the 8th most abundant element in the earths crust.
3.) About 80% of the worlds magnesium production is controlled by China.
Fun Facts Con...
4.) Foods like dark greens(kale, baby spinach etc.), nuts and seeds, fish, soybeans, avocado, banana, dark chocolate, and yogurt are high in magnesium. They can cut your risk of heart attack and diabetes down, as well as ward off depression and migraines.
5.) Magnesium can produce very bright white lights that are dangerous to the eye. However it is used for things like fireworks, flares, and even camera flashes.
Magnesium has 12 protons
Atomic Radius
1.) Magnesium has 2 valence electrons.
2.) It has 3 rings, or energy shells.
3.) Magnesium is an alkaline earth metal.
4.) Magnesium is in the second group, or family.
5.) It is also in the 3rd period.
6.) In order to reach a full octet, it loses 2 electrons.
Atomic Mass
The atomic mass is 24.305 amu

Orbital Diagram:
An ion of Magnesium loses 2 electrons.
Protons:12; Electrons:10; Neutrons:12
Charge: +2, making it cation
Electron Configuration: 1s2 2s2 2p6
Orbital Diagram:
Bohr Model:
Comparing Mg and Mg+2, Mg has the larger radius. It has the largest radius because it has more electrons that are further away from the nucleus. It also has more energy levels than an ion of Magnesium.
Lightnesium Man
Max N. Sium, once just an average electrician working in Cincinnati Ohio, became Lightnesium Man. Max was hard at work one night in his apartment, trying to make the brightest lightbulb known to man in an attempt to impress his boss and get a big promotion. Max was working with magnesium, as he learned it made very bright lights. Suddenly the light from the magnesium flashed right in Max's eyes, leading him to fall unconscious knocking over magnesium as he fell backwards. All the magnesium laid on him for hours before he woke up, seeping through his pores. When at last he woke up he was no longer his undercover identity and regular human, Max N. Sium, he was Lightnesium Man.
Lightnesium Man has the ability to light up with an incredible glow that temporarily blinds the enemy, giving him enough time to escape. He also has the power to create fire with his bare hands. He can throw the fire he created at his enemies. The light weight, low density of magnesium also allows Lightnesium Man to run with incredible speed.
Lightnesium Man's arch nemisis is, The Water Boy. The Water Boy is known for blasting his enemies with strong bursts of water. Water is the ultimate weakness for Lightnesium Man, it causes his fire powers to be basically useless, and too much water weakens the brightness of his light.
Superhero Suit
Lightnesium Man is known for his signature silver suit and white cape. His suit is made of a mixture of magnesium and aluminum, and a mix of magnesium hydroxide and plastic. The mixture of aluminum is light weight, and is also used to make things like cars and planes, so it is incredibly sturdy. The Magnesium hydroxide and plastic makes the suit fire retardant, so he can not injure himself with his fire powers.
Family and Friends
Lightnesium Man is friends with Ultimate Aluminum, because together they can create a shield of strong material, like the outside of a plane or car, for protection. He is also friends with Super Sulfur, because they are able to combine their powers of magnesium and sulfur to make Epsom salts, which can be used to help heal injured heroes. His third friend is Oxygen. Together Oxygen and Magnesium can do anything together and create many different forces and cures to defeat the enemies.
Family and Friends Cont...
Three members of Lightnesium Man's family are Sir. Calcium, Mr. Beryllium, and Strontium Man. They all share the family gene of 2 valence electrons
