Althought she was evil in the comics, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe she is a heroine, using her magical powers to protect the innocent and fight the forces of evil. She is an expert witch/sorceress, her mastery of magic allowing to cast several different spells.
The MCU version of the character is a composite with Clea, a benevolent witch/sorceress in the comics who was a recurring ally of Doctor Strange. MCU Tina is also a composite with her own daughter, Nico Minoru, who was a benevolent witch/sorceress in the comics and who led the superhero team known as the Runaways.
