    I loved the variant but I think it goes overboard with the cuteness.

    Fair point. Maybe something more like this.

    Dance games are my divine punishment from the Lord. May my furnace be forever fueled.

    Itís funny how the happiest Magik on that cover is also the one who was by far the most amoral (Wells/Gillen).

    I dunno, New X-men torturing Cebulski Magik was pretty damn amoral.

    Did anyone else briefly get the impression Magik was part of the mission of HoX this week, given a blonde with bangs in a cloak?

    (Everyone over at HoX Spoilers #3 felt strategically that Magik should be on the mission, but given that she's OP even to fight Mother Molds, that it might take away the suspense.)

    Nope, not at all. That blonde was always Paige as she was on the cover that was released weeks ago. Magik isnt there bc she'd make Kurt redundant and Hickman clearly has a story reason why he was used for this role

    As far as we know, Yana is still stomping around in Darkchilde form. Until they show us more pod people... cough... mutants, we can't assume everyone's all safe and tidy in Krakoa right now.

    BTW, got my Magik tattoo this weekend. Once it heals I'll post a pic!

    Magik could never have been part of this mission. The story as is could not work with someone like her around.

    I found myself muttering throughout the whole issue...well if Magik would have been there! Ha. But you are right, bringing her along would have made a quick & boring story.

    Brining Magik along may have made for a quick and boring story, but as I was reading House of X #4 I kept thinking about how silly it was that Magik and some of the other mutants like Magneto weren't there. Magik not being there was so obviously a bad decision that it kind of distracted me from the story, and I lost my ability to suspend disbelief a little bit while I read the comic.
    Still managed to enjoy the story though.

    Maybe Magik didn't feel like going on a suicide mission.

    Well, Magik could probably be cold and pragmatic enough to not go on a mission if she thought that it was suicide and leave the other X-Men to die. But, I don't think that it would be a suicide mission if she were there. And, I think that she is brave and tough enough to go on a mission if she knows that she will likely win.
    Unless my understanding of her is off.

    Hopefully it's not a spoiler to some to say that I think the X-Men as we see them are "pod people" and a clone of the "best" version of that character in X's eyes. So like Jean is the "teenaged" version pre-Phoenix etc (which is why she comes off so feeble)...

    So the Magik we see in New Mutants is actually a younger "pod" version. The fact she is using the old SoulSword (which Rod says wasn't his design choice) and has an outfit that is "less mature" (no boob window) is what makes me think this. She also appears a little more feminine in the pictures we've seen than the battle worn "older" versions of recent years.

    My other theory is that what we're reading in HOXPOX she's still stomping around as Darkchilde and when Moira "Resets" at the end of this 12 issue arch she's a younger version of Yanna (even Rahne looks younger IMO).

    I think you're thinking to much in that.

    If she's a younger Illyana based on his ideals, she wouldn't be wearing her post Xavier outfit. He'd have no frame of reference for it. Cause he was dead.
