    In my defense, I've barely read anything before 2000, and Jean's been dead for most of that time period.
    Lorna is the second female to join the X-men. She joined in the late 60s. They were the first two females to interact and both were attracted to the Summers boys. I bet they had some interesting conversations...

    To be fair, Lorna didn't stay on with the main team very long. I mean, pretty much as soon as she was introduced, she left again. Her and Alex stayed back when the main team went on adventures, and they only reunited in time for that final big mission against the Z'Nox. I guess it could be argued they had further adventures between then and Giant Sized since they were both Jean and Lorna were taken captive by Krakoa, but their on-panel relationship back in the day is verrry sparse.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!

    Lorna never left the team until Claremont took over post-GSX. She didnt join in her first appearance. She became an official X-man after Alex was introduced and was with them for quite some time. The problem is the book was cancelled so her time as an X-man was primarily seen in Hidden Years, appearances the X-men did during that break and off panel.

    They were shown as good friends after the X-men were presumed dead and both were on Muir Island pre-DPS. There wasnt a whole lot after that but their friendship was later acknwoledged in the 90s in an Unlimited issue featuring the two and the Summers brothers. Morrison acknowledged it. Austen acknowledged in his run when Lorna was brought back into the fold and Jean was her maid of honor at her wedding. Brubaker had Lorna lamenting about missing Jean after her death. She didnt have a signficant role but Lorna was one of the few allowed to express emotion in PR when Jean returned. She was visibly shaken up at the return of her friend. I wish more would be done but I think there's been enough evidence throughout the years to establish them as good friends even if it wasnt nearly enough

    February solicitations don't seem very interesting regarding Jean.
    This age of X-man at the moment feels meaningless, I hope i'm wrong.

    Seems like a House of M rehash, down to Wolverine being part of the rescue crew and everything. February solicitations don't really read interesting on ANY level, tbh.

    this is all very boring with no excitement on sight, cant wait to read the next 10 months of comics with Jean fainting and failing to scan her surrounding with tp..... nah!
    It's funny because when I saw her behind on the glass at the end of the show, I thought, "That's where she needs to be. In captivity. Behind a glass in a lab somewhere that she can be studied like the psychotic specimen she is."

    But their closeness was indicated in xmen 125, and didnt they fight in the muir Island d Saga? And inthink fir a short timevtigether wgen Hean had thise tentackes (i know, not a good time). They had interactions when Lorna went ‘mad” as well. In many wats Lorna has been out through the ringer more than many other mainstay characters.

    Im not sure how i feel about all this reality warping stuff. Often there us just acreset at the end with no real lomgterm effects, but that may suit todays way of stiry telling anyway. Im pribsbky one of the few that dudnt dnjoy the original Age if Apocalypse. It was okay, bit insyead of being a lreal” eventbit just gets moved to a oarallel universe, another Earth. If it doesnt affecr mainstram universe krvour cgaracterks im nit reasky invested in the characters or story. They are just ober egged ‘what If” stiories.
