    Default Should Xi'an and Tran seperate?

    Should Tran return as a major character? Villian? Hero?

    I don't think the guy that once turned women into sex slaves for his drug lord uncle would make a good hero.

    It would be fitting with the Yin-Yang symmetry of the twins if he came back and Tran lost his right leg to go with Xian's cyborg left leg.

    Also, if he could be made a gay man since she's a gay woman, or if that's too unPC (he's a homicidal egomaniac, and it seems that aside from MachineSmith, LGBT can't be bad guys at Marvel), instead he could just be asexual (well he's a villain so he either hates everything or at least has no love for either women or other men) and she's actually bisexual (she's a heroine after all so she has love for both men and other women).

    Or if you want to go the "Gray" route like Sabretooth after-Inverse, have it revealed that all his time in her mind has taught him restraint so that he now refrains from hurting innocents (in contrast she has learned to go berserk when the situation requires it).

    You know, before they made her lose her leg, I was hoping that somebody would do the Rick Jones-Captain Marvel trick on the twins, with her uncontrollably switching places with him when she least expected it or desired it for the drama (like a reverse-Ranma 1/2 situation for those who know what I'm referencing) and he could be the troublemaker on the New Mutants (at that time, during the SanFran Utopia era before the Schism and AvX).

    Or maybe Johnny Woo could recruit him to become a member of the faculty at his PAN-ASIAN SUPER SCHOOL (hey, if the latest Horseman of Death could be apparently resurrected and reformed, even after as shown in Infinity:The Hunt, then why not LOL) .

    But Marvel really needs a new mutant psychic/psionic villain/anti-hero antagonist. They killed Exodus and it looks like everybody forgot Stryfe is reback alive again in the 21st century tsk tsk tsk.

    If Tran ever get loose I see him focusing on taking over the criminal underworld and destroying Karma's life, making him an antagonist for both the New Mutants and street level heroes like Daredevil and the Punisher. Side note anyone find it strange that the Shadow King never messes with non X-men heroes.

    None of what I'm about to say is on-topic, but it bugs me so much and I want to rant.

    Chris Claremont knows F**k-all about Vietnamese the language.

    Here are the known members of Karma's family:

    - Xi'an Coy Manh
    - Tran Coy Manh
    - Nguyen Ngoc Coy
    - Leong Coy Manh
    - Nga Coy Manh

    Here are the problems wih those names:

    - Vietnamese naming conventions put the family name first, then middle name, then given name. But cultural differences, so I'll let that one slide.
    - Vietnamese doesn't use apostrophes.
    - Xian, Coy and Leong are all invalid words.
    - Manh is a male's given name.
    - Nguyen and Tran are family names, and the most popular ones in Vietnam at that.

    It's minor and most likely petty, but it has prevented me from ever taking Karma seriously as a character.

    It would be nice to actually have some villains right now. So I would be all for it. I think the one that had even more potential as a villain was the half sister, I think her name was Dao but she went by Susan Hatchi
