Minerva Young is a young girl who recently discovered she could move the very earth beneath her feet.
Minerva is walking away from Ed's with the others, when they come across two men beating up another teenager. Minerva then steps forward and confronts them. One of the men shoots at the group, but Minerva, reacting instinctively, uses her ability to create a shield out of the earth.
Minerva arrives at the dumpsite with Embry, Rosie and Connor in an attempt to retrieve the kidnapped Tamir. They arrive and Connor demands Spiro releases Tamir, however Spiro turns the tables as he reveals that Tamir was just a way to get to them, to gain his revenge and orders them to be shot. Before the four can react, Spiro's entourage open fire.
To the immense suprise of two parties at the dumpsite, the bullets halted in midair before Minerva and her friends. However to their immense relief Ed reveals himself, as he approaches the gang Spiro's entourage begin to fire again, Ed launches the bullets back at them in a brutal reprisal.
As Ed reunites with the gang, Minerva uses her ability to create a wall of earth and prevent Spiro escaping the dumpsite.
Minerva has the ability to control geologic materials such as minerals, dirt and rocks. She has demonstrated this ability in order to create a sheild out of the earth, to protect herself and the others from bullets. (Payback)
