    Rachel - slightly younger by maybe 3-4 years, 23
    Prodigy - 19ish
    Eye-Boy - 17/18
    These ages make my head hurt

    This seems about right for ages!
    There are so many things I love about this book! I like how it didn't take them too long to mesh as a team, they wanted to solve this case to help Northstar out, even Daken for all of his teasing wanted to help find Aurora! As they started seeing what each other could do they genuinely appreciated the help from each other!
    I loved Rachel in this book, it felt like she was moving forward through a lot of her trauma, and actually it seems realistic that someone who has been very badly traumatized would actually become very attached to her pet! There are interesting psychological aspects to Rachel, has she been reluctant to use her chronoskimming for this type of work in the past? Is this what made her a good hound for the Sentinel Regime and Ahab, that she can track people across moments in time! Does she feel an affinity for the baby warwolf because he is a hunter like Rachel is!

    Northstar had a lot of nice moments where his attitude was thrown back at him, and a bit of a big surprise when Lorna made him the team leader! I like that Daken was the one who really showed Northstar that he needed to understand everyone is not his enemy, 1st when Daken held Northstar back from the vehicle so the team could finish their assessment, and then later when Daken took Aurora's body to the morgue for examination! Daken has his issues, but he showed that he also had respect for Northstar's grief and he toned things down when he knew Northstar was struggling with Aurora's death!

    Prodigy, wow, what a wonderful showcase of his powers! I noticed he had icons for everyone in his glasses interface (haha fireball Rachel, too funny)! We only got to see a bit of personality out of him, but he was trying really hard to keep the team focussed and making sure everyone was included!

    Eyeboy, only had a few cute moments, but you can see he is just happy to be hanging out with the cool kids on Krakoa! He was so happy when Rachel and Lorna approved his flier for X-Factor at the end!

    Lorna, this issue really set the tone for her future growth! She isn't sure where she fits, she feels the pressure of being in her Dad's shadow, but then on top of that she feels like her whole past has been defined by who she was in a relationship in, or having her life stolen by Malice! I loved that she confronted her Dad about how he can't even define her personality, and made him acknowledge that she needs to figure things out! I love that Magneto needed to reassured that Lorna was still going to visit him regularly, he wants her to have her space, but he needs her to be in his life, and I like that they acknowledge that Magneto needs and wants Lorna to be a part of his life!

    Lorna's powers, is she more of a geomancer, has she always been a geomancer! A geomancer could manipulate metal the way Magneto does because it's just another mineral, but it appears Lorna can manipulate all minerals regardless of metal content! Even just straight out gemstones! Is this related to why Lorna went into geophysics in university, was she trying to understand how her powers really worked! Lorna isn't just connected to Krakoa because she threw it into space all those years ago, she feels like she is in sync with the earth composition of Krakoa, very similar how Black Tom is in sync with the plant composition of Krakoa! It also appears that Krakoa likes Lorna, just like Lorna feels at home on Krakoa, Krakoa feels at home with Lorna on Krakoa! I thought it was very interesting that Krakoa built her a bed of gemstone to sleep on after she finished building the new headquarters! When Lorna fell asleep on the gemstone bed she felt safe and protected, because she really was, I believe if anyone tried to mess with Lorna that Krakoa would have protected her!

    It's really interesting how this will move forward, but I love the book so much!

    I also love the investigative work, and I loved the quiet council summary of the investigation! I know this kind of makes it feel like mutant CSI, but I am actually ok with a full out detective series on Krakoa! This book lets us visit with more Krakoan citizens as this team will interact with a lot of people! It won't all be fighting an enemy all the time, sometimes it's just finding out and exposing the truth!

    I love how the upcoming covers are all giving the series a noir detective comic series! I am really looking forward to this series upcoming issues!


    Oh, and Rachel and Amazing Baby are so cute together, and I love it!!
    We are MUTANT..Krakoa, FOREVER!!! “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité”

    I feel like this is something new Leah is adding to her bc of her background. To be honest, she was written here, the way Magma should be, but most writers down acknowledge that side of her

    How even did Krakoa survive getting flung into orbit by Lorna? That's got to be a pretty wild story.

    As long as a small piece of Krakoa survives, it can grow back over time.

    I'd love to see Polaris manipulating the earth more often, but I'm not sure if it's something we'll be seeing much outside of Krakoa.

    The creation of the Boneyard was described as a collaboration with Krakoa, I would think that means Lorna was manipulating the metallic elements while Krakoa was controlling the non metallic minerals.

    What happened to the Krakoa from WatXM? Was it reabsorbed into Krakoa proper?

    More proof after Giant Size Magneto that Marvel Universe magnetism also includes engineering, architecture and design skills.

    hahaha. QFT. That's the brilliance of the QC were able to get a ton of great one liners in all the books.

    Also... I love that people think the 05 could be in their 20s. This aging, particularly with Magneto is going to be a problem in the MCU movies.

    Here's how I generally view the ages:
    Xavier/Magneto... 50s/60s
    05/ANAD... 30s
    New Mutants... Late 20s
    Gen X... Early 20s
    NXM... teens
    I'm a fighter. I fight for normal people. But I'll never be one. I'm not a hero. Some people can't handle that.
