    Subbed. I do miss Illyana's pre-manga appearance, though.

    I love Magik one of my favorite X-characters

    She is mysterious sort of brooding but also sweet

    You can never truly tell where she's "at" up in that head and heart of hers

    The Sapna arc in EXM sort of showed her role as "absorbing the darkness" so that others don't have to
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    I think my single favorite issue Illyana is in is the New Mutants Special Edition #1. We get to see her fun, playful side and also her demonic inner nature. She is both villian and hero in the same book. Plus that Adams art...

    So has Magik ever actually been in a relationship with anyone?

    Question:

    Is she still Phalanx possessed? I never saw how that storyline finished.

    They already reverted her to her pre-Bachalo look.

    It didn’t. Presumably Rosenberg will wrap it up in UXM

    No.

    Yes.

    Also, I would add New Mutants: Dead Souls to the essential reading list. It was basically an Illyana solo disguised as a team book.

    I mean, she's on Cyke's team (along with fellow possessee Dani) so it will probably wrap soon, one would think.

    Not the 616 Magik but the Magik from Earth-10192 (Battleworld) was with Leah of Hel. And then that Leah was sent to earth 616 and she was looking for Illyana but nothing happened bc that Magik wasn't the one that she loved once. It's so dramatic like a Lana del Rey song lol

    I missed that storyline. A shame. They made a nice couple.

    Good. Does she have her proper Soulsword or is it still that Final Fantasy sword?

    Back to normal. But I have to admit, I grew to love the final fantasy version
