    She needs to be on an Avenger team as their Elementalist.

    Orange is one of my favorite hair colors. Here's hoping 2021 will be a good year for Crystal

    I always loved her. My first exposure to her was in FF 332. FF332.jpg
    Don't know anything about her but to see her beat Sue, I was like wow. As the second most powerful Inhuman and that she's got the most human connection, she should defiantly be seen on the regular.

    On a lighter note, did you know instantly that black band on her hair was the natural pattern of her hair or a hairband that could be removed? I thought it was a hairband at first. I can't remember which artist drew it as a pattern of her hair, tho.

    I think it depended on the artist because when she first appeared she didn't have it, and when her hair was short, it stayed the same even though it was shaved in the back.

    Always loved this version of her second uniform. Not sure why they had her switch to the basic one I after this.

    I think it started out to be a head=band for a few reasons. First, Crystal did not have it in the pic you posted above, but she was not adventuring at that moment and I believe she was in a peasant dress. Once she wore her yellow costume, the head-band appeared and likewise for her blue FF costumes. Also, it does seem to be drawn as holding back her thick hair (at least the vast majority of times) from obscuring her vision as she would want to be very cautious when using her powers. (I think likewise why Wanda first had her wimple, when a merest gesture could unleash her hex powers, then as her control increased, even ever-so-slightly, she turned to more of a headdress to keep her hair back).

    Since we know she will show up in the F4 Doom Bride story thought to get her appreciation up as a reminder it is here. It starts in May. I do wonder with Doom joining the GotG and who they will be fighting soon will she play a role in this.

    As a very old fan of the FF, Crystal is my favorite secondary character. Her story with Johnny is always my biggest regret, that she had to marry Pietro. Others say it better, but her and Torch's lovestory is a unique version of the Romeo and Juliet story.
    My first exposure to her had to be around the mid # 60s of volume 1, back around '67 or so. She was already involved in many of their adventures.

    You'll get your wish sooner then you think.
