    One of my favorite Lorna pages ever. Her teasing Crystal was so amusing (although poor Luna, she really didn't need to hear that).

    I love that one. Lorna's not one for subtlety here, unfortunately. I wish we could see more of Lorna interacting with Crystal and Luna--it was one of my favorite things about the space-opera.

    The way Bobby walks away in that second pic is hilarious. It's like he's waddling.

    Polaris looked like a goddess in her classic costume during TAS. It's too bad she couldn't act like one.

    Yes, she was very much in 70s and 80s form in TAS in that she looked great, but she was weak and stupid.

    New fan here. All-New X-Factor got me to notice and like Lorna, and I'm hoping to find and read more things with her in it.

    What is amazing is that in a love triangle where everyone was behaving badly. I managed to have sympathy for both Lorna and Alex in it. Lorna because after the Genoshan genocide and losing her father there as well she felt Alex was all she had left in the world (when that was gone all hell broke lose) and Alex because he was being mentally manipulated by Carter to have a woodie for his mother.



    Marvel had a better 'red wedding' then Game of Thrones ten years later. lol.

    It shows Lorna can do really violent things, lapse into full on power and PTSD induced megalomania and still be sympathetic. Obviously, it helped during the Austen era that Lorna was never more powerful or more skilled at manipulating electromagnetism. One can argue in the space arc she did more powerful things, but it was simple things she could do with her powers in the early 80s just on a larger scale. In the Austen era she was really stretching her abilities to the kind of things someone who manipulates electromagnetism which is one of the four basic forces in the universe should be able to do.

    Oh, and Lorna back then was as smart as hell and finally was developing her own philosophy on mutant rights and using lethal force against genocidal threats.

    Well Alex was being manipulated by both Carter and Austen, who wrote him as his avatar in the comics...oddly enough the scar vanished leaving Lorna to be the luny ex...and I remember Alex and Lorna showing up in the animated series with them being from X-Factor and finding out that Alex was Scott's brother, I'd still love to see a well written Alex stand toe to toe with Scott.

    Dear god, Chuck Austen's run sucked. That was probably the worst portrayal of Alex since his whole "double agent for Dark Beast" phase back in the 90's.

    I actually think he did pretty well for himself, even his affair and break up with Lorna was given an out that he was mentally manipulated into it and he got to be team leader of an x-title. His interaction with Lorna was one hell of a lot better then what came before and after.



    Actual witty lines and their relationship being on equal footing? I would take that any day over relationship to come in the space arc.

    Meh, that still couldn't redeem that story for me. For me, Austen baited Havok and Polaris fans into thinking that the characters could finally grow a little and stop breaking up constantly. Instead, he just throws it on our face and says "screw you".
