    I always thought Karma was sidelined because she was from that FF Annual and Claremont didnít want her, but he bloody wrote that too. Guess it was really that her power is problematic to write, but that team just got whiter and blonder as it went.

    It just takes me the fuck out of the "New Direction" mandate when I see the same old faces getting used across multiple books.

    Like, fuck off Emma, Logan, Scott, Jean, Kitty, Psylocke, et al.

    Like I certainly DO NOT want some sappy ass fan service book cheaply pandered together where a writer just ends up trolling POC characters because there's a clamor for them. I had enough of that bullshit in the 2000's and it was so fuckin trite that I stopped not only buying, but supporting the industry as a cultural medium in general- especially the big 2.

    But when you've got the opportunity to actually radically put your whole ass into a new direction, a new world, with characters who represent a spectrum of readership and who may be templates for a kind of character that perhaps you've always wanted to experiment with, then NOWS THE TIME to do that! And there are just far too many POC characters going to waste quite frankly.

    This new direction is about Mutants, not just X-men. So let's see it.

    Karma is boring, thats why she never had anything to do in the original series except look after her two siblings. Plus she was too old and never quite fit in with the group. They felt like kids and she felt like a grown single mother of two

    Costumes nowadays seem to do away with ethnic identifiers more often than not, as with the yin-yang on Karma's chest there. Aero and Sword-Master on "Agents of Atlas" don't.

    Well get siblings were never around not sure how she coulda been read as a single mother. I'd say Karma is more interesting than boom boom who's poor Lil white trash girl doesn't fit when you're living in a Mansion

    Errr karma is Vietnamese ying yang symbol is Chinese. But that's what I'm talking about her name....the sigil on her costume you'd think they woulda grown her powers in a way that.... the worst a person is...the more damage 'Karma' can do

    I mean I kind of agree with the with the spirit of what you're saying is.

    But realistically no one would read those books and they would Crash and Burn sales-wise. Thus endeth the new direction.

    excuse me why are we pinning women against each other ??? Nah im jk people just think Karma’s boring because she’s consistently sidelined and not omega lol. boom boom’s interesting bc she doesn’t “fit” imo at least

    the fact that she stands out like that makes her interesting to me lol. Nobody writing her is interested enough in her as a character to try anything new or fresh and that’s why she’s gets the rep she has
