    We may get some of that in the next episode in flashback. From interviews was orphaned early we don’t know how early nor how close they will follow the comics and the parentage issue will be answered soon by most interviews, but how they plan to do it is an open question.

    I have some ideas on how to come up with an ad for the ep that would raise the ratings Mojo style. The ads have been too focused on the Strucker family drama which was supposed to be the hook, but it’s been a bit unwisely focused as this is in the end a genre show and the audience knows it so running from it doesn’t help.

    It sounds like an interesting way of approaching her background in that Magneto being her father hasn't totally been covered up?

    The show does have alot of competition now! Always more that could be done to help it stand out. Early days still.

I'm really digging this punk rock/Gothic look they gave her. I think it fits her overall attitude, and makes her stand out even more.

    Well Magneto is gone along with the X-Men seemingly in the wake of the July 15th incident.

    Emma has said Lorna doesn’t know Magneto, the implication is she only has heard rumors and conjecture about him. Though we just don’t yet.

    The SS must have his DNA so one would think if this is based on the DoFP timeline it could be made into a rather big issue soon as they check it out.

    They need to focus on what is working and what isn’t in terms of the promotion. I personally think the ads need to embrace more of the genre and edgy political side and less of the family friendly entertainment with superpowers.

    If I were doing an ad I would do a video montage a few scenes like of DoFP Magneto flashback followed by a really nasty SS interrogation of Lorna about him. You do that you bring back quite a few genre fans and a good episode even if he doesn’t show up would probably add a half million to a million viewers.

    Yes some of the audience might feel baited into unrealistic expectations, but that is part of promotion and a great episode would make up for that.

    For a street level incipient revolutionary Lorna I can’t think of any other look that would fit.

    I choose this avatar because it was Lorna helping lead a much more developed revolution against an oppressive anti-mutant state. She fought without powers with only her wits and gun for weeks. Sometimes the greatest strength comes from within and she really showed that then.



    The Gifted Lorna is showing that as well as her powers are low so much so she is being mocked on a bunch of boards by fanboys for getting beat by cops and getting savagely beat down by prisoners. But, she has a real inner strength that means ones she builds up her skills watch out.

    I'd only really have a problem with Lorna being "weak" like this if it was in the comics or a direct representation of her 616 self in her current state. I see nothing wrong with it happening to Gifted version Polaris because it's clear she's young and just really starting to grasp her potential, which I think is intentional. Start her from a place where she has a lot of growth so viewers can follow her on that journey. Given everything Gifted is trying to do, where she's at is already great for her. She's not just learning how to lift a pin, or how to turn on a light bulb. She's stopping bullets, throwing cop cars around, and redirecting electricity, which is almost where Magneto was in the first X-Men film.

    Polaris has been a major part of the X-Men’s world for decades. We’ve seen her as Havok’s partner, Magneto’s daughter (you can always flip a coin to see if this has been retconned again lately), and as both a supervillain and a superhero across multiple teams. Her powerful magnetic abilities make her an intimidating foe, and the character is even enjoying some smallscreen spotlight now on the TV show The Gifted.

    In Marvel Comics, though, the character is being really underutilized. She has popped up in what amounts to cameo appearances in X-Men Blue, but the truth is that she should be working alongside the X-Men or even headlining her own book. She’s got a rich history with multiple mutants, has worked alongside heroes and villains, and is an ultra-powerful mutant…what’s not to love?
