    Because the government doesn't have Xavier. Also I think later on Shi'ar tech got added into Cerebro. It was a fortuitous circumstance for the X-Men. Of course, there are various mutant tracking tech governments and other organizations have used though, including other mutant abilities themselves.

    I just feel like this is throwing up your hands and giving up as opposed to attempting an explanation. Again, to me saying it's due to her mutation and strong will makes a LOT more sense than "helmet" and I tried to explain why *repeatedly* already. don't like people ignoring everything I say and just acting like "well duh it's comics who cares". Kind of aggravating! Please. I'm not saying YOU have to care about it making sense but no need to like, get a dig in on people who do
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    I brought up Cerebro because of your example of Sentinel Services using them helmets, and thus making them immune to telepathy. Why doesn't the Government have something like Cerebro? There's no way only ONE person could build something like that. So why hasn't the Government? Why haven't they already built a device that can exactly pinpoint the specific Underground Mutants? That way this whole thing can be over with.

    My point is that not everything makes sense in comics. I also don't think they added Shi'ar tech to Cerebro, as I only recall it being added to the Danger Room.

    As for the rest of your comments, I fail to see how I got a "dig in" on you. I think you're overthinking things, and that isn't something rude. I'm sorry if you thought that was a dig, but it was not. Outside of it not making sense to you, you seem to be hung up on the Frosts and Lorna's relationship, and I don't know what else to say about that. Polaris doesn't like them. They might be her teammates, but she doesn't seem to trust them, and I don't think that's paranoia, I think that's just Lorna being smart.

    There is a notion that rather large threads may contribute to server load. As such, we are experimenting with closing existing threads to see if it helps matters.
    Feel free to start a new thread on the same topic.
