Does anybody remember about one of the last X-positions where Cullen Bunn said the team would have new members soon including Polaris and Rachel? Well here they are. Polaris and Rachel in the cover of Deadpool & The Mercs for Money #7.
I came across a few people asking me what I think about “Inhumans vs X-men” and also if this Polaris is the “real” Lorna Dane or it she’s “dead”.
So what do I think about Inhmans vs X-men? Oh boy. I don’t really know. Felt an unspecific dread. IMO, It just another story where we will see the X-men losing once again. Be prepared that this is the event where we’re going to see Magneto getting beaten, Cyclops getting killed (again) and Storm getting hauled away probably by Medusa, the Queen of Attilan (inhumans). There is a reason why Marvel put Storm in charge and it’s not that she’s going to “save the day”. She’s probably going down with the rest of the X-men unless there is a miracle. But seeing many covers out there of IvX are depicting the contrary. Do you think X-men are going to win? Do you think Storm can beat the Queen? Again, the thought of those covers filled me with dread. Let’s just not worry about that now, right? It’s too early to speculate and criticize something that is not on the table yet. Additionally, same goes with the assumption of Polaris.
Now, What do I think about Polaris AKA Lorna Dane? It she dead? Is that the real Green-haired? The real daughter of Magneto? Well, the question is why would she be dead? Why might she not be the real Polaris? Future, Past, present it’s still Polaris. Let me put it this way. Descriptions remain unclear, period. Whether Deadpool and his crew caught themselves going to the future and predicted a war that is about to happen which this can indicate, she’s damn well alive. If memory serves, Polaris was last seen with Magneto and his right hand, Briar Raleigh, who is still a mystery. I noticed people are not questioning whether if that’s the “real” Magneto or Briar (or the rest of the X-men) and obviously they are. Same with Polaris who was with Briar when the universe merged and everything remained unspecifically blank. I’m sure Bunn can’t mislay them from that point on. Although I was comparing Polaris with the second cover Deadpool & The Mercs for Money #8 and for some reason her headdress certainly appeared different from the cover #7.
Not only does the headdress appear more like a warrior, but she looks amazing. doesn’t she? In this cover, Xorn is participating and to me it’s the same Xorn who joined Magneto. The Xorn who’s teaching Elixir how to control his power. This is the same Xorn no hesitation. I’m positive Polaris is alive and well but let’s not worry about that now Let’s worry about Storm. I mean, WTF is Storm doing with the Inhumans? I’m pretty sure that’s Storm even though she might be from the “future” but W.T.F? Is this a traitor Storm? It she with the Inhumans instead of the X-Men? Is that her destiny? I have noticed Marvel is undermining Storm on many levels lately. I mean, Did you see how badly she was treated in Extraordinary? She was getting her ass whooped by a team from another dimension (nothing new really she was depicted like crap and getting beaten many times before where I see many of you don’t even want to talk about it, but I will soon and will also post some scans). Ever wonder how she’s going to be treated in the upcoming IvX event? You should be filled with dread, lol. Anyway, who I’m I to criticize, right? Clearly the motive for Cullen Bunn STILL remains unclear but most important is that the Mistress of Magnetism is back. So be happy that she didn’t vanish.
What do I think about this? I think somehow Marvel is protecting Polaris from those crappy stories (from being treated as such) and from Fox. I don’t think Marvel wants Fox to see her prospective. There’s a massive reason why Marvel didn’t kill the green-haired. She deserves all the prosperity
and deep inside Marvel knows they ain’t done with her. How exciting!
Discussion of today and since no one post it I will. X-Men ‘92 #10 and the last issue that Marvel is giving us. Not only being disappointed to see this end but how Marvel treated Storm at the very end. Let me post a scan since this can prove my motivation against Marvel. Also, this is Storm-heavy, because I’m a Storm fan. Sorry to anyone disappointed by that.
Still wonder why I have so little faith in Marvel and complain so much about them trying to screw Storm over, especially when they do stuff like this…..
And here I thought Storm was a top notch fighter.
I identify so strongly with Storm, like you would not believe.
Allow me to highlight something I’ve said briefly before. They are trying to damage the reputation of storm. It was the basis behind my repeated complaints about Marvel undermining and segregating Storm. Out of so many characters in this issue, Storm is the only one who gets beat down badly. Heh, even Polaris ended up being the bad-ass in this issue. You wanna see the next page after Storm got defeated by Domino?
But that’s not it. Marvel was making Polaris such a really bad-ass while undermining Storm.
So who Marvel undermining who? Unlike Wolverine, Polaris or Cyclops, Storm is at great risk of losing her respect. Marvel has so little respect for her that there’s a good chance Marvel would keep putting Storm at the bottom if necessary just to fuck with Fox. Not that in the Fox universe she’s doing any better since she’s treated so poorly in those films. People see her so lowly that they think Storm is not as popular as people from CV, CBR and even here on Tumblr are declaring. I also hate how the drew Storm throughout all the issues.
I repeat… Lorna’s proportions seem perfect
and love how
Firmansyah drew her hair.
But just one look at Storm, she looks like a played-out
old hippie with that wild hair. Storm lookalike a hag, period. What Alti was thinking? I don’t know. And yes, I’m so mad for what Marvel has been doing to Storm.
Marvel is giving Storm an incredibly poorly depicted role whereas Lorna seems to be the bad-ass without getting her ass (or any other asses) kicked, Storm gets her ass kicked so easily by Domino, UGH. This is so evident that Marvel is treating all the X-men like crap and putting Storm in the worst line to be treated poorly. I’m trusting the evidence because evidently we have Extraordinary X-Men where Storm is being written as incompetent. The implication here is obvious. Marvel has respect for Havok, Wolverine, Polaris, Emma Frost, etc, but not for Storm. They care so little about Storm and the X-Men right now. All they do care about are the Inhumans since Fox doesn’t own them.
This is why I KNOW, for a fact, that Marvel is trying to undermine and ruin the X-Men franchise (not just Storm). Heh, they already cancelled Fantastic Four and that’s their future plan, to cancel the X-Men as a whole.
