Winx Comic #131: The First Time Aisha Controlled Water?

I’ve talked about a first in Aisha’s love life that happened in “La Prova di Nex” (Nex’s Test). But she may have hit a personal milestone in this comic, too.

Correct me if I’m wrong. Isn’t this the first time in the series — the comics and the show — that she controlled water?

Note: This is a Winx season six comic. She “waterbent” at least once in season seven and several times in World of Winx. But I think up through season five, the only liquid she bent besides her Morphix was a smoothie.

Also, shooting water out of her hands doesn’t count. That’s creating water out of thin air. It’s not the same as shaping existing water into an ocean wave and sinking an island.

I’m not sure if I’m right about this. Why would Rainbow wait six seasons to have Aisha do something so obvious?

Aisha is the Fairy of Waves — or fluids, oceans and tides, magic shapes and shifting tides, whatever you wanna call her. Let’s just say this: her power source is water. Her symbol is a water droplet. Some of her attack names also include the word “water”.

Bottom line: she’s supposed to be a water fairy.

So why would she never control water? That’d be like if Flora couldn’t grow flowers, or Tecna was bad with technology. Yet Aisha used her Morphix more than anything else. I’ve always thought it was just a training liquid until she was ready for the real thing — i.e., water.

Maybe she wasn’t ready yet. Even in “La Prova di Nex”, the Winx had to lend her some of their magic energy. Was it because she couldn’t “waterbend” or because bending a giant wave was too hard for one fairy?

If “La Prova di Nex” was the first time she controlled water, I’m glad Nex got to be part of that moment. He even tangled with a Melusina barehanded to buy Aisha enough time. In the end, she leveled up. She and Nex grew closer, and Andros was saved from the threat of becoming a desert realm.

I guess this was the best time.

The only time I can think of where she might have waterbended was that episode early in season three when Magix Beach (or whatever beach that was) became dangerous and the Winx all had to save the civilians caught inside it. Even then, I think she might have just made a Morphix surfboard or something – my memories of that episode are hazy.

Layla/Aisha is part of the Water Tribe? I knew it! If she, Flora, Bloom and some fairy controlling air would put their powers together, they’d be like an Avatar.

In all seriousness, she is a badass, especially in this comic. I just wish we had the 45 pages back (does anyone remember those times?) though. 24 per issue are just not enough. Or, if the amount of pages is kept, tell a story in multiple issues and not resolve everything right away (DC/Marvel only have 21 pages per comic and their stories span multiple issues).

It’s kind of difficult, as not every season takes place a year after the other. Sure, it did for the first 4 seasons, but season 5 immediately picks up after season 4 (a few days after its season finale) and the Winx haven’t wasted 12 months defeating the Wizards, so they’re probably still 19 in season 5 (except for Stella and Layla, who are a year older and younger than the other 4, respectively). When does season 6 take place? Few days or weeks after 5, didn’t it? So the girls still are around the same age as they were in season 4.

As for season 7…they all could have aged a year up to that point (taking into account that the events from seasons 4, 5 and 6 all had around 4 months each), making 4 (Bloom, Flora, Musa, Tecna) of them 20, one 21 (Stella) and one 19 (Layla) by now.

World of Winx is different. They do look like they’re in their older teenage years….I guess they’d be 18 at the very least in that universe (and we don’t know if Stella is a year older like in the main Winx universe).

I wish the Winx website put up more information on the characters, but those times are long gone. Remember when there were online drawing contests, this big Alfea game, useful articles, fashion tips (“summer dresses, combat boots” or “ankle boots should be worn with short socks”), comics to read online, etcetera? Good times.


tecna would be 19 and bloom19

yeah if you could choose a day and month for nex’s birthday what would it be and why?
without that info i have to make the assumption that he’s around the same age as Aisha which is probably 24 going 25

the plot was Councilours yerka and givelin trying to oust Saladin, Faragonda and Griffin from their jobs and install people loyal to them in those positions for some reason that we still don’t know

hmm the 2 councillors appeared in comic no.29, 35, 64 and 68

speaking of the comics it seems the Yerka and Givelian trying to take over the schools plotline in the winx comics never went anywhere

was there a problem with the post that you planned today or something?
