Lorna Dane A.K.A Polaris A.K.A Magneta

There are no words to describe how fabulous Lorna is. It really has to actually be seen to be believed. When something is so great, call it phenomenal. It’s a solid choice when you want to describe your new favorite thing with more syllables than just “cool.” She’s beyond phenomenal.

Today is not about the douchebag. Today I want to talk about something different. I want to talk a little bit about who Polaris is.

(I’m dedicating this to (Polaris) people from ComicVine such as LordOfAllHumans (and a few others) who say Polaris is not recognizable… sounds funny guys, yes, I know but that’s what the troll said.

So, who’s Polaris? Lorna Dane? Green-hair Mistress of Magnetism? Any relation? Any team affiliations? Any abilities?

Lorna Dane AKA Polaris the green-hair Mistress of Magnetism is an X-Men since day 1. Who also is Magneto’s daughter and has 1 sister, 1 brother, and with 4 cute nephews and nieces. And all have super, cool, awesome powers. Plus they are all mutants (and inhumans).

Is she recognizable? I mean, is that a question to the obvious answer? Check on the images I posted above me and ask yourself if she is. I say FUCK yeah she’s recognizable and very well known. She is the Mistress of Magnetism who can generate magnetic energy pulses, create force fields, manipulate the Earth’s magnetic field, and allow herself to fly. By concentrating, Polaris can perceive the world around her solely as patterns of magnetic and electrical energy. She can perceive the natural magnetic auras surrounding living beings as well (Ain’t this sounds familiar?). She has bright green hair, the first indication of her mutation (which mean……she still a mutant DUH!). 

Briefly in her history, Polaris lost her magnetism power, but gained the ability to absorb negative emotions from the environment and use it as strength, endurance, invulnerability, and the ability to temporarily increase her height and mass.She eventually lost these additional powers and her original magnetic powers returned.

By The Way, Team Affiliations are……………………

1) X-Factor (Serval Industries) (She was a Leader)

2) X-Factor Investigations (She was also a Leader)

3) Starjammers (Second-in-command)

4) X-Men

5) X-Factor (Second-in-command)

6) Defenders for a Day

7) The Twelve

8) Acolytes (as Magneto’s daughter she was prob Second-in-command)

9) Horsemen of Apocalypse

10) Marauders (also lead the team Second-in-command)

11) Hysteries (Fantastic Force)

12) Exiles Vol.2

13) Academy of Tomorrow

14) Shi’ar

15) House of M: Secret Wars (She was the focus of the story)

16) House of M: Civil War (second-in-command and also lead her own team)

17) The Six

18) The Mutant Liberation Front 

19) Islanders (Muir island)

20) Brotherhood of Mutants

And a few others that I can’t recall, but her majority teams was the X-Men and X-Factor……no question.

So, is she recognizable? I guess LordOfAllBullShit failed the trolling.

Hi everyone. It’s good to be back. Today I want to discuss something very interesting and important about a character I love, Lorna Dane. The discussion will focus on Lorna Dane from Deadpool and The Mercs for Money (I only picked this book up for Polaris) therefore, I’m only going to include panels about her. First I want to thank Bunn and Coello who did an excellent job in executing Lorna’s characterization and her beauty. Polaris was really well done both in terms of writing and pencils. I did enjoy it very much :)

Wow. Lorna left many of us speechless because something surprising and crazy happened. Here Marvel once again, made Lorna a badass, menacing and intelligent leader. I like how Lorna and Domino interacted. The debate between them was so perfect that even Lorna uses words precisely like her father. Polaris has vowed to carry on her late father Magneto’s work. Also, I am very pleased with Polaris’ new costume and this is her what……50’s costume? Can’t keep track that’s how many costumes she has. Marvel not only gave her so many costumes, but made her a fierce leader a number of times.

Artwork of the beautiful, strong, confident, badass, and brave Polaris. The depiction tells it all. I really LOVE the Magneto inspiration the artist utilized to create it, from the helmet/tiara, to the overall composition of it, really LOVE IT a lot. @whatadouche-bag  was right about her tiara. It does have a vibe of a warrior helm. Now, let’s take a look on few other panels.

And when the Inhumans showed up, Polaris was the first in battle. She took the first stand on everything just like a true leader. What a ferocious warrior type, I LOVE IT. Those deep shadows on her face remind me so much of her father and no one in this world can deny who is the Queen of Mutants :)

One thing I would like to clarify about this panel here is that the girl with the green Mohawk is not Storm. There were people confusing her with Storm because of her Mohawk, eyes and attitude. Even though I wouldn’t blame them because ironically, in the cover of this issue, it showed her with white hair and not green. I assume this was why they were thinking it was Storm. But what a surprised seeing a green Mohawk when we were expecting to be like the cover depicted. I wonder if Marvel did this on purpose lol. I wonder what Marvel is trying to say about a new girl named Sheath (who might show up sometime soon in the future) with green Mohawk. My only thought would be Marvel’s mocking Storm. “A girl with Storm hair’s style and Polaris’s hair color” Can this be an indication to show how Polaris might look like with a green Mohawk? A Sheath is cover for the blade of a knife or sword (pretty much that’s what she was wearing). She doesn’t show any abilities and/or never shows in description what her ability is. Only that she’s more of a combat/agility who fights with knives and nothing more.

Anyway, the next panel is even more amazing.

Every single one of them were matching their perfect combat. Polaris went to the powerhouse guy called, Lash. I guess she knew he was the hard one but Look at Lorna with her magnificent beauty and very Magneta. Reasons to believe Lash is the strongest (aside from karnak) was because of this

There was nothing negative that I can point out. Of course, some might find something trivial as usual but here you can’t deny the awesomeness of Lorna Dane. Nothing minor in either both issues #7 and #8 of Deadpool. The story is pretty solid, which is what I’ve come to expect from Cullen Bunn on anything he writes. I like the fact that Marvel’s Splash Page is proudly introducing the powered Lorna Dane in both issues :) Marvel left Bunn to depict Lorna as her father’s image to let everyone knows that whether we like it or not, she’s Magneto’s daughter. Also so new readers get to know the Powerful mutants that’s about to become something much bigger in the future. It’s one of the reason why Lorna was dragged in to one of the most popular comics. Marvel is giving us a hint of what a future Polaris might look like. Who took the opportunity to stand up for mutant rights.

Even though Negasonic went back and made sure the fight in the sewers, which would prove lethal to Deadpool (is that even possible), never happened, this issue still gives us a glimpse into a possible future for Lorna. Strong, confident, taking up her father’s mantle. She will pick up where her father left off, continue his wishes, and more than likely come into her own as a leader. Even though she has already led on several occasions.

Future Brotherhood Polaris X-Men: Battle of the Atom (Game,2014)

The daughter of Magneto, Lorna Dane is a mutant with the ability to manipulate magnetic fields, similar to her father. As a superhero with a very complicated history, she has long felt torn between her own principles and those of her father.

STATUS: Polaris’ alignment finally tipped when Magneto died in the future fighting anti-mutant forces. Despite their conflicted relationship, she’d always admired and respected him – and so when he died, she carried his torch, joining the Brotherhood and wearing his original costume as homage.

Emma Dumont to Play Polaris in Fox's X-Men TV Series
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Emma Dumont and Percy Hynes White have also joined the cast [...]

Lorna better gain more respect from those of you who like to talk rubbish. She’s finally made it to the screen to only sooner or later be dragged to the big screen.

This is one of the most exciting moments and feelings to hear the beauty Lorna is going to be on screen. Played by the beauty Emma Dumont. I found out through my cell phone while working and couldn’t wait to get home to post it. It’s very late (so I won’t be commenting much) but I didn’t want to go to bed without commenting how happy I am. I can only imagine how many of your jaws dropped lol :)

Lorna in the animated series Wolverine and The X-Men. Polaris is a part of Magneto’s family known as House of Magnus. She’s daddy’s little girl. When Genosha was destroyed by the Phoenix, Magneto arrived at a tough decision, and sacrifice his life for his daughter. Before he perished, he gave her his helmet and cape to Lorna as a symbol of a legacy passed on. Here she’s using her powers, which were as powerful as her father’s by now, enough to scare Sentinels away, and be named Badlands for the sake of it. She was so powerful that no one couldn’t match her powers. She precisely created a HUGE sentinel from scraps of metal to use for combat. She has shown such fine tuned skills for her age and was pretty much on her father’s level.

Wolverine and The X-Men was very good. Adult storytelling, good use of hero and villain characters, and nice plot twists.

Starjammers 

Latest commission I’ve done. This team is (here is a quote from the original client’s pitch) “basically the Summers Family sitcom, with Scott and co. ” and they are going off the planet after the events of Secret Wars. 

Corsair and Hope Summers redesigns are ones I am most satisfied with so I decided to post them apart.

(and Scott with his moustache oh man hands-down winner right there) 

anonymous asked:

I kind of noticed how some people are just negative and say things that can only support there arguments in order to make a character look down and not really saying all the positive things Marvel has done for Lorna. I think I know what you mean about "people" They just want Magneto to be the only one who's good enough.

I’m glad people are beginning to wake the fuck up (please excuse my language). One thing for sure is that Polaris is more than an alluring personality. I always get the impression that the people here (and few other sites) who hate Polaris hate it solely because it’s Magneto’s only daughter and the only Mistress. My guess would be people fear that Polaris is slowly going to acquire Magneto’s place and we are seeing this right now. I don’t see why “hate” or better yet, envy because she actually does have her moments. She has a fun personality. She is considered quite beautiful with green eyes and emerald, cascading hair. People are so mean that someone even offered Marvel $1 for the rights to Polaris and her abilities (And this person is considered a “valuable fan” of this particular character so called, Lorna Dane. People who act like they’re “fans” but then you see them downgrading her all the time and everywhere they go) lol.

Polaris was Created by Arnold Drake, Don Heck, Werner Roth and Jim Steranko, 4 awesome writer and artists Marvel legends. Polaris first appeared in The X-Men #49 (October, 1968). So I’m sure Polaris is extremely more valuable than just a $1 especially that she’s Magneto’s daughter. Marvel wouldn’t give her away. Marvel wouldn’t even kill this character for god’s sake. There are reasons to be impressed that Lorna is still in comic books today. Marvel knows she’s a powerfully and mysteriously attractive female. No one can deny that Lorna is fascinating, seductive, and, of course, often extremely GORGEOUS. She’s a very valuable character and she cost more than what we think. She was one of the first X-Men to be introduced as the Queen of Mutants and still is. And don’t forget one of Polaris’s most iconic images, the cover of X-Men #50, which also happened to be the first time that famous X-Men logo was ever used :)

So yeah, I can see the hate.

I gathered all those best images of Polaris around tumblr and made a grid. Credit goes to those who posted them. I gathered 3 images from @dechra and the rest of them are from @genoshan (all manipulated by him also). I want to thanks them for giving me this opportunity of enjoyment (next grid will be Medusa).
