New Power is the seventh story arc/saga in the W.I.T.C.H. comic book series/graphic novels.
The Guardians must face an ancient enemy – Dark Mother. She was once Meter the Queen of Spring and made flowers bloom beneath her feet. But when she became corrupted, she transform into Dark Mother and attacked Kandrakar. She was defeated by three of the five Elemental Queens of Water, Fire and Air, and was cast off into the dark void, where she continued to wait patiently chained underground for the moment she would be freed. In silence, Dark Mother sent a seed and planted it in Candracar where it would served as her infiltrator against the Fortress of Light.
Each Guardian received her "New Power,"form bestowing onto them much greater Guardian/elemental magic, sadditions to their costumes, and somewhat different hairstyles to signify their higher evolution . Matt now serves as their new trainer and mentor after being recruited by the Oracle to prepare them for their upcoming battle against Dark Mother. One by one, The Guardians found the root of their elements and obtain control over their new powers.
Meanwhile, Dark Mother escapes (due to unwitting, unintentional aid from Will) and sets off to punish and control the counicl of Candracar. Thanks to the seed which she had planted beforehand, Dark Mother enslaved the wisest of Candracar's council, except for Yan Lin. The Guardians later faced her in one last battle and Dark Mother was sealed in a stone tomb. Oracle Himerish relinquished his place to Yan Lin who was the only councilor who foresaw the coming threat and leaves without even saying goodbye.
