    It's a strange time when you are less likely to get impaled standing next to Marrow than Rachel Grey.

    A. As international hero he got invited.
    B. Many of the X-men like him.
    C. Many mutants can relate to him.
    D. He is an allround nice guy.

    Seen that question a few times. My guess would be that the winner was allready more or less clear after the first results were revealed (overall a terrible mistake on Marvel's part since it manipulated the voting behaviour for the rest of the time) and nobody really talked about the whole Gala thing anymore outside of maybe forums like this. So they wanted to create some attention again and pre-emptively revealed the resutl of the fan vote.

    I'm not even much of a fan of him, but still think he is underused, considering he is a veteran character and has mostly been dead or used as quick punching bags these past two decades.

    So, Hickman book titled The Losers is confirmed (edit: joke based on reveal strip). That last reveal felt less fun than the rest, which is a bit odd.

    I did think of that but if they cared that much they would have showed it in Dawn of X. I am not predicting an all-white cast, but I do think anyone expecting any great level of diversity will be disappointed.

    None of the candidates are yelling rigged they want recounts? LOL.

    The election and the vote were a good move by Marvel and it managed to get fans online quite motivated and interested in a 'political process'.

    In terms of Lorna I am happy she won of course. I only hope the Lorna that appears ends up being conducive to spicing up the core team interaction.

    Well, like everyone thought, Lorna won. But it looks like both she and Sean will be in Wells' new title.

    The Gala isn't on Krakoa, it's on the island that Magneto acquired in his Giant Size issue.

    That is the best Banshee has been written in over 20 years. Just a few panels, how sad is that for the character?

    Both are bad writers, so it isnt a downgrade.

    I was expecting Hickman to write Polaris, thiis poll felt like fake news

    Considering the green skin and multiple red eyes it's likely a krakoan automaton like those seen in Marauders manning the drug factory.

    Huh, very surprised it's not the Moira book. Guess they're sitting on that a bit longer, unless they're playing on the "Mutants Always Lose" thing?

    Also, just because I forgot: all the members of the team are being voted on by Krakoa right? And just Polaris is the one who's being actually voted on IRL

    Edit nevermind.

    I expected Hickman to write her as well and was very happy at that thought given he seemed to get a big part of the character other writers of late have ignored of her being extremely fearful and distrustful of humanity which would give her something to spice up her relationships with the rest of the team.

    As for Leah she tended to write Lorna as a really self absorbed and emotionally frail Gen Zer mainly focused on daddy and ex issues and that is very self limiting. There were a good moment or two with her in her run, but I was more then ready for her to branch out.

    I can't remember exactly how it was presented in the story, I seem to recall each habitat being able to nominate someone. Presumably there were others who were voted in that we have not been shown, who the story had already decided should win. The strips kind of make it seem like there was only the one vote, or at least one winner. So who knows.

    Sorry, it was a joke based on Sean calling together the rest of the nominees as Losers.

    That's talking about the cartoon. All 5 of the cartoons were written by wells. Nothing in the tweet about who's writing the book.
