    Review of the X-Men book Lorna is in School of X in December.

    "Left on their own while the teachers attend a meeting, the students have the worst party ever in the Danger Room which is interrupted by the arrival of unexpected guests who have a plan to fix the catastrophe of M-Day when many mutants lost their powers. Soon, however, an outside threat forces the students to finally bond as a team. This is a cracking story, with blistering action and strong character moments.

    The unexpected guests are Danielle Moonstar and Lorna if the Marvel.com summary is any indication.

    I wish it was official, but someone designed a bunch of them custom. It does blow away the two official Polaris statues with her classic outfit by playing up the sleek deadly beauty of it. The last official statue was if anything afraid of accentuating the darker aspects to the outfit like the skull.

    For the head the designer made several different versions. Headgear, helmet, nothing.



    They used graphics to plan out what they were going to make.

    Yep. I'll never understand why they didn't just use the classic version in the Brubaker X-Men run -- or why Marvel Legends went with the inferior design over the superior classic.

    Anyway, a designer's Polaris custom and graphical rendering.





    This is beyond terrific! Thanks for sharing!

    Hey guys, been awhile since Ive been on here. I checked out TOM 3 and I have to say that this is turning out to be another Scarlet Witch mini series. I do not dislike Wanda, its just Im tired of the potential of spotlighting Lorna wasted on a character like Wanda who has been fully explored character wise over the years. This could have been a major turning point examining Lornas core personality as well as her relationship with her father. Yet here we are. Just another Wanda story. Again, I dont hate Wanda, Im disappointed yet again. I also have a feeling that Polaris will be overshadowed by her step sister. It could very well end up that way. I sure hope it doesnt go that way. Maybe Lorna will get more story time next issue. Just frustrated!

    This was supposed to be Wanda’s story and is supposed to be about the healing between her and the mutant community. Not a Lorna Dane story.

    Psst. Fathers have relationships with more than one child.

    I barely hope for some damage control after horrible character development for Lorna so far in TOM.

    The story is literally about Wanda's death. She has every right to "overshadow" every single character in there. She barely has agency in most of her major stories like Disassembled, House of M, Empyre, and you're here wishing she had even less in one that it's about her dying, as if it was ok for her to just be totally fridged in favor of other characters? Wow.

    (This has nothing to do with how Lorna has been portrayed, or me trying to say that she shouldn't get good stories and specifically good stories with Magneto. But the way you're going about this is just not it...)

    I agree that Wanda should have her time on a story about her death, the problem is that this story was not shown to be about her, I think "The Death of the Scarlet Witch" would have been a better title and fans would not expect other members of the family, like Lorna, Pietro, Billy and Tommy who were shown on art and covers, to be central or have a part on the story. I personally would have prefered that over the "Trial of Magneto" title since hes supposed to be a protagonist and he could easily be replaced by a punching bag especially since hes also on inferno , on the exact post he had before ToM, basically spoiling part of the story.Death of the Scarlet Witch would also have a greater syncrony with Death of Dr Strange and show a link between both characters now that they are going to appear on MCU.

    True that the story was promoted as being more about Magneto. But it was still about him killing Wanda, and complaining that "Lorna is getting overshadowed by her step-sister (Wanda)" in a story about him possibly killing Wanda makes no sense.

    Trial of Magneto has been horrible for Lorna. Its effectively smashed her relationship with Magneto to bits for the cheapest of drama points and for padding of the mini in a way they are going to pretend never happened. I would imagine a number of fans out there believe the garbage out of her mouth in ToM #1 is the basis of their relationship. And lets not get into her declaring her father guilty of murdering someone she knows he cares about a ton more then she does on the flimsiest of evidence.

    Given from the beggining Magneto was the only one who wanted her to be brough back to life in the QC and the only one who tought about invinting her and Pietro to the Gala it didnt hold much water the accusation that he killed her in the first place, its plain stupid how the characters are reacting as if that was a real possibility in an island full of people who have hated her since M-Day and yes given Lorna is magnetos daughter there, it makes sense for a story about his trial to involve her in some way and not just because the writer wants to show how much Magneto and Lorna hate each other despite living together for a while on Krakoa while Magneto seems to only care for Wanda, the same one, hes accused of killing.

    The story is just silly and not even well done drama, the only good part so far has been Wandas inner struggles on the magical realm this is why I said "Death of the Scarlet Witch" would have been a way better title and yes I would have liked if it didnt involve Magneto and Lorna if they were going to be so badly written.

    This story is about healing Wanda’s relationship with the mutant community in general.

    I know, I expected to be about that, I am just saying it should have been publicited that way as well.

    It was always publicized that way.
