    Hickman claiming Rachel is not Omega is a (minor) misstep IMO. I've read her too long and seen too much of the crazy shit she can do when she so much breaks a nail. Either they've nerfed her a bit over the last 15 years, which is very possible, or Krakoa 3-D printed her with a baseline power set.*

    * - this is pure HoX speculation lol, I have not read anything beyond last week's issues same as anyone else

    Chris Yost is one of at least 15 passable writers who got far too important jobs in the X-office because they had a popular cartoon background and/or kept the trains running on time.

    I would have enjoyed Rachel exploring more than her kiss with Red Lotus. I also would be down for a Danny Rand connection. Or Warpath, as it seemed that was the direction they were going in before she was coerced into mating with spacebird.

    In which book did you read that?

    I can get behind the idea of trying to place Rachel into another book or an Avengers title. It's sensible. I remember the dark days, pre-Remender IIRC, when I was so desperate for more Psylocke exposure I thought she'd make a great choice for Daredevil's next girlfriend. (It was a good idea!)

    Being Matt Murdock's girlfriend is never a good idea.

    Rachel not being Omega is the one Omega thing I greatly disagree with, given what she has done.

    Seconded!
    I honestly feel that Omega list was so reductive.

    I see Rachel, Jean, healthy Cable, X-Man and Quentin as all equals pretty much. All genetically ideal Phoenix hosts.

    edit:

    My biggest disagreement with the Omega list is Xorn not being there. He can do anything Magneto can do, + destroy stuff with a black hole and is a healer too.

    What has Quentin ever done that would qualify him to be an Omega?

    But mention a girl and editorial will think that's going too far.
    It's Rachel who is a problem, it's Rachel who has a problem with writers.

    The way that she and Jimmy were interacting during the first part of RAFTOSE lent readers to think that would be a direction they were going. A few of my friends and I felt that way.

    I don't know what you mean. How would Rachel have a problem with her writers? And no, I don't think Rachel is the problem, just as I don't think any character is a problem given the right motivation and writer.
