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.
