    I saw this piece last year I think on insta, but here it is now. It comes with a recipe for "Magnetic Lemonade."

    1 oz Vodka
    1/2 oz Melon Liqueur
    1/2 oz Limoncello
    6 oz Lemonade
    6 oz Sprite
    1 Lemon wedge for garnish

    Pour the three alcohols and the lemonade into a tall glass
    Stir using a metal spoon and your magnetic powers
    Add the sprite
    Drink through a metal straw!(important)

    By apprenticenanoswarm. Nice to see new fanart of Lorna as a character of color.



    By xmenevo-justcause. Hints of X-Men Evolution version Wanda in the design, and it's tagged with Evo.

    And then there's fluffyviolin looking for help on separating the X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse model of Lorna from the game to get Lorna with the costume into Sims 4.

    I suspect its an article on electromagnetic deep brain stimulation. There have been trials on it in various ways for a decade. When it comes to electromagnetism the real question is more what can't be done with it then what can.

    ^ Hope that works (change 0 to o in stanf0rd)

    And yes it's what jmc said lol.. basically just I think it's ironic or interesting the concept magnetism can possibly treat depression or other mental disorders when in the lore it may end up causing it for Erik and possibly Lorna as well

    Electromagnetism can do a lot of things besides throw metal around, which is why I've emphasized the idea that Lorna could exhibit low-level "psychic" abilities (low-level to be fair to full-fledged psychic characters) through her power set. Here, it's used to treat depression - which can be in-roads to the idea of Lorna affecting moods, including up to mental manipulation. Electromagnetism has also been used to influence memories, indicate directions, etc in the brain. The big issues insofar as where Marvel is concerned are a) acknowledging Lorna has this capability, and b) not sending all of it to Magneto and leaving Lorna to bend spoons.

    Concerning Lorna and Magneto's mental health, we could say the amount has an impact, or that their biology and biological reactions are different from a typical person. Though the study ideas do mesh with how Lorna's been written as deeply depressed during periods of low or no power - inverse to "applying electromagnetism can relieve depression."

    Edit: I tried pasting the link here and it's the board that keeps changing it. Whoever configured CBR has it set to change the URL like this even if you hyperlink text.

    There are certain ideas that are common threads throughout fictional lore and those with unlimited power comes consequences. For reality manipulators such as Legion its a schizophrenic confusing of reality. For Lorna and Magneto their physical bodies as in nervous systems limit how much power they can channel. The idea that was slowly developed since the 80s was going beyond a certain point power wise for too long for them starts doing damage. With godlike power comes a cost is a common thread in fiction.

    I asked if shirtless Rictor could be his new costume moving forward. But they didn't answer.

    But I'm super exciting for Lorna!

    I'm so excited hearing that about Polaris! Very eager to see both Leah and (more of) Hickman's take on Lorna.

    Hate that we're going to have to wait though.

    Yes! It's just so exciting to hear her name being mentioned and talked about at all in regards to excitement from the offices themselves.
