    I preordered X-Men Legends 2, and it came with a comic book that shows how Polaris and Xavier get kidnapped. It was super short, but Holocaust shows up at some kind of speech Xavier was giving, and Polaris tries to defend him by throwing chairs at him, and then gets taken out somehow. I remember I was so excited to get the comic, but was disappointed at how short it was lol. I don't know if I still have it or not, but at least they remembered Lorna existed.

    I still have it after all these years, but yes it was good that she finally in that era built up a level of prominence they couldn't completely ignore her the way they had in the past.





    They did ignore Lorna's family connections in the main game, but that was part and partial to the primordial scream of the old time fanboys in that era who couldn't accept the change because it wasn't that way in their era of nostalgic comic book buying. I wish Lorna's 90s writers had pulled the trigger on the topic (well Makie did AU at least in Mutant X). Austen and Morrison were really the last era's writers who I believe could have done it before IP protection against giving Fox great ideas started going up as 2002-2003 was really before Marvel Studios was even a dream.

    Future Fight right now are leaving off Lorna's parentage while playing up Wanda and Pietro's. I will say in terms of hard core comic book buying online fans they aren't as active or organized as they were in 2003-2005, but she has many more casual fans today thanks to The Gifted.

    Hopefully, after Marvel trashed Polaris fandom with her regression to the girl behind Havok in space and her rise in popularity thanks to The Gifted that Polaris fans can start to push back again to get her in games and her parentage respected, because right now its hit and miss. It was respected in X-Men Days of Future Past, but not many other games. If its a pure X-Men game or comic it tends to be respected these days, if its general Marvel universe be it a comic or game its much more iffy.



    Lorna's rising popularity overall will slowly mean more respect for the character, but there are alot of 80s to 90s fanboys still active who see her as an unimportant B/C lister so it will take time.

    Any thoughts, guesses, predictions on Lorna's comics future post BLUE?
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    I loved the rendering of Polaris for the XML2 cutscenes.

    The DoFP game was very fun. In my opinion, she was the most useful character in the game because she could attack characters that were off screen.
