Not much is known about Idie at this time, except that she was one of the 5 lights that was discovered a while back, by the X-Men. From what we do know, she's originally from Nigeria, Africa, and she's fourteen years old (Proof: http://www.kierongillen.com/). In the few days that her powers manifested, she was looked upon as a bad omen, by accidentally causing destruction to everything and everywhere she went. As a result, the enraged towns-people in her village acted agressively out of fear and killed her parents, believing they were the cause of all the chaos. Scared and held hostage in her own house, with prayer as her only means of comfort, her powers manifested once again, when she caused the death of two men attempting to abduct her.

Idie's powers seem to be thermal dynamic in nature, in the fact that she projects cold/negative energy, absorbing the ambient heat, and dispersing it externally. Obviously there is far more to her powers and personality that we don't quite yet understand, but one thing is for certain, she's destined to rock the core of the X-Men's elemental line up, and maybe give a few veterans a run for their money.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you our newest, youngest and brightest addition to the X-Men family....

Idie Okonkwo.

Her "Goddess" sent a defective Storm-Bot to save her, the damn thing's cyber brain is so corroded from a crappy body casing that can't protect against her own meager lightning bolts. The damn thing is so twichy it's starts every sentence with "they say" and uses "we" rather than "I."

Someone nail that dumb Stormbot like it was a duck on Duckhunt, PLEASE!


I thought she was older.

So did Oliver Coipel, but then again, he drew that Generation Hope teaser image weeks before this issue hit shelves, so he probably had no clue.


I hate this broad already.

**** Marvel up it's crusty crap filled arse, I don't particularly want to read about 12 year old children. I couldn't even stand reading all of Brian K. Vaughan's Runaways because those little brats generally pissed me off with their damn teen antics and "youth rebellion" crap. Give Gillen the big toys, NOW!!!


Mapplethorpe-splattered exercise gear does not a uniform make.

I though it looked pretty okay, but not "costume" worthy. Now that I know Idie is 12 I feel like a goddamn pedophile just looking at that teaser!


You're just jealous that she might kick Pixie's arse...

No, Agent_Torpor, I assume, and I feel it's creepy and feels way too close to crossing the line into pedophilia, or just being a tacky outfit and inappropriate for a girl her age.

Greg Land makes everything on women small, unless it is women's breasts or men's chests.

First thing I will say is that her hair is awesome.

Second is that I have no interest in reading about a 12 year old. Try me again when she's at least close to adulthood.

Third, she does not look 12.

Lastly.... what is that black oil seeping from her crotch? D: That disturbs me way too much. Yes, I know it's part of the "costume" but it really should not be there.

Too bad it's not a dream sequence or a flashback... That would explain so much. Maybe they could retcon it to where that event actually happened before M-Day, and when Decimation did happen, she was depowered. That would at least add a little more age to her. Maybe not much, but enough to satisfy skeptics like us.

I don't know how much time that is in marvel time. I don't know she could get aged randomly or it could be a flashback who knows maybe the girls been threatened for 12 years and is not twelve. Although the inconsistent art is troublesome because she definitely doesn't look 12 in the preview for Generation Hope 1, there she looks about 15 or 16.

I really don't have a problem with a twelve year old although really I think next gen heroes need to be at least 15-16 on up. But the problem is the uniform and her age that is ridiculous. However, this just proves how much the x-editors fail at during their job. I mean I assume the least they could do is approve covers, they don't even have to open the book.

Judging by that outfit, I'd say she looks 22, not 12... And I'd actually buy that, and be fine with her at that age. It's just a shame that Marvel screwed up a new character like that before she's had any real page time.

Now all that's left is to find out what her personality is like. I'm praying they don't give her an "angry, young black woman" complex. But with that orgin story with her in that hostile environment she grew up in, and obliterated family, it's hard not to give her that stereotype at this point. Thing is, other X-Men have also been in lynch-mob scenarios when they were found by Xavier or the X-Men, and they turned out okay with no anger issues. It's just that "Americanization" that I don't want writers to give her, simply because of her age, how negative some minorities can turn out to be being raised in ghettos, and that it's okay to express anger all the time, like some characters.

Then again on the flip side, some fans like those "angry at the world" type characters, which end up being really popular with most people... Wolverine, X-23, Sabertooth, Mystique, (the old) Emma.

Maybe Storm refers to people's "mutant" age. Or by how long they've had their power? This girl coulda been like 12 when they manifested and she's 24 now so she's still a 12 year old girl to Ro'. Kitty is only like, 11. Prof is in his 30's, and the New X-men are relative toddlers to her and since she can't stand the smell of poopy dipey's- she just steers clear of them.

Makes no sense for Storm to do that besides the girl looks 12 in the previews and this girl is suppose to be a new light so she shouldn't have had powers until Hope activated her.

Does she looked like a developed twelve year old in those preview pictures. Also do you think 12 year old girls should be wearing uniforms that have pants that ride so low, u can see their ass crack. And suggestive splotches around their private area.

That is rather unusual that she'd be able to use her powers like that so freely, at that age, and without the aide of Hope to fully activate her X-gene. I wonder if this also means that she's more powerful than what we're lead to believe... Or, she's an actual mutant that wasn't affected by M-day.

In December's solicits, it mentioned Hope and her team of "lights" being stuck in Japan to go up against the 5th light, without the aide of Cyke, Logan, or the X-Men. I'm guessing these kids will all be put to the test, and we'll get to see all of them in action.

I think its power related, the more powerful ones can use their powers without help. Look at Kenji, he is rampaging through Tokyo of course he is evil so that probably contributes so it would be hard to compare him to Idie but still the more powerful ones will probably get free reign. Otherwise these bag and tag missions would get pretty lame.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind the writer of Generation Hope do a 60%/40% split on action, versus character beats- just to familiarize ourselves with each character. It think it's important for both. Especially for us to get a good understanding of their powers, and limitations if any.

I'd especially be interested in seeing how the "lights" intereact with the New X-Men and other students, seeing they're the real deal. Because right now, we don't know if Hope's mutants are real mutants, or engineered mutants via Hope's powers.

Power Pack had their own book for some time. Same goes for the Runaways, and a number of youth oriented characters. So I don't see how Generation Hope couldn't work.

In terms of who they'll be fighting on a regular basis, I really don't care at this point. They can train for all I care. That'll take care of some of the action sequences. In between that time, we could get to know them.

She looks younger and she is noticeably shorter in Uncanny then she is in the preview so yeah she looks closer to twelve in uncanny then she does to fourteen. By the way, how old is Hope suppose to be these days? 18? 16?

As I understand it, we're all more or less accepting that Storm was misinformed by whomever told her of Idie's dire situation. Which, honestly, adds a tiny touch of realism to the story.
In panicked situations I'd guess that facts would become skewed.
Hell, I exaggerate ages all the time. Anyone under 25 I refer to as 12. Storm and I must have that in common.

The writer for Generation Hope previously stated that the youngest of the lights would be 14.
I believe most readers are now accepting this as confirmation, although it hadn't happened on panel.:smile:

I apologise, Yana, I did not mean to lump you in with that group, that was certainly not my intent. I agree with you on the misinformation part. The person who was misinformed, probably because he did not care to read the "character brief" was the writer.

UGH! LOL...I'm not...that one page was almost enough to make me not want to buy the book. I'm still giving it a shot though...but (and I know this is an appreciation thread) so far I am loathing Idie...so I will take my leave of this thread now, before I am stoned to death...:biggrin:

worship? really?

Sure. New friends are exciting. All I ever do is talk about how awesome they are and tell everyone they need to meet them.

Hope's their cool new friend who's a few years older who will be able to buy for them in a few years. She's the illest.

Good points, I assume Gabriel would be pretty annoyed that Hope has severely reduced his life expectancy.

Actually, I'm really not understanding the physics behind him aging while using his powers, when it should be the other way around. Einstein's rule of physics state that if an object is travelling at the speed of light, everything else will age more rapidly than the object travelling at that speed...

And with that said, why doesn't Northstar age in the same manner. Marvel or Gillem really needs to explain this.

Because they have different powers. They aren't the same character.

No one really "requested" the images. I posted them on my own. But in order to abide by the "rules", I'll just post the link. It just sucks that we can post pictures of the characters we admire and talk about.

I mean really, what's the difference when an advance preview comes out and someone uses that image for their avatar? Isn't that spoilery too? Kind of like when Bobby slept with Mystique, and I used it as my avatar... Pissed off a lot of people, but it still goes on around here.

LoLo the Blue Wonder is nineteen though, so she's older than Hope.

Profezzor, should Idie take Hope's place as Gen H's leader and fulfill her destiny as NuStorm? Or, should Idie take a short cut and go straight for THE ARENA?

It's quite clear that Idie's a powerful mutant with a lot of potential. That's something Storm should have relayed to Scott immediately, so he could have Magma and Iceman train her back on Utopia. That would have made the most sense, rather than send these kids on a possible suicide mission to somewhere they're not familiar with, let alone not even familiar with their own powers... This issue has Giant Sized written all over it. Only with less experienced and younger characters... It's just a matter of which one will die first.

The better thing to do is for Storm to take Idie under her wing, and groom her as the next queen of Africa. Both her and BP have their own problems as it is, managing their nation... Time for some new blood.

Will the hijacker that edited this thread's title please step forward and provide proof or a link that states "She's 14"... After all, if I get banned a couple of hours AFTER I took down the pictures, the least the person that tweaked this thread title while I was away can step forward and say who they are, and how they came to this conclusion... And I can change the information in my original post to reflect this new information (and proof) :mad:

That's great hopefully she will be drawn that way. And I still hate that ugly whore costume on the cover of Generation Hope which is now slightly more appropriate but her Hope worship is now more disturbing.

Yeah Idie was raised in what can be assumed is a war torn African nation whose parents are out of the picture from the get go. Her kissing the ass of this little red Mutant Dracula makes little sense.

She didn't display that behavior before, so I wonder what happened to her. I wonder if it was Hope's touch that did it. It's just a bit disturbing that the X-Men or Hope don't seem to care, or be concerned why these 5 lights are mesmerized by her, now that she's touched them. I'm sure they'll get to the bottom of it at some point, but right now it just seems like Hope is using their vulnerability and mental servitude as her puppets... And everyone is okay with this.

Exactly, also Hope should be having a much more HBIC kickass attitude then she does in the preview. Also Nigeria is not exactly war torn, yor fine as long as your not in the heavy oil producing areas.

Scott probably loves it and wishes he had troops like that. He probably thinks it great that Hope has troops that will take attacks for her. Still yeah the X-men should be more concerned, Hope is basically starting to look like a cult leader with a touch ritual that starts instant indoctrination.

He had Emma turn Bobby's powers back on once, as well as use her as a mental megaphone to every mutant on the planet... It wouldn't go past me if he's used her to manipulate someone else for his own selfish needs.

You're correct about her being on Logan's side, but this decision was made by both him & Cyclops (with Hope's reluntance).

And you can see Idie over within the WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN Series.

I had to bump this thread to talk about how great Idie's tweets (https://twitter.com/#!/idie_okonkwo) are today. I realise it'll no doubt end up being annoying and one-note, but for now this is hilarious:


#unforgettablefeelings Burning the flesh from a murderous anti-mutant captor while freezing his fellow solid.

#NoMatterWhatImGonna be a monster, so I might as well accept it. :)

I am hoping that by putting a "smile" at the end of my "tweets" people will see that I am comfortable being an abomination. :)

She does seem a bit light hearted these days for such a dark and brooding character. I think they crossed the line when they had her put on that Black Queen costume and thought it was appropriate for a 14 year old to dress that way.

True. It also doesn't help that they frequently just have her muttering in the background about being a monster. Like with Warbird where about all you see her do is make unwanted advances on Iceman. Issue after issue where all you get of a character is that, people lose interest. Warbird at least got better treatment and development in Astonishing, Oya's been stuck in W&tXM. I think some people were hoping for a romance with Broo, but instead they seem to be putting her with Quire, who's not only age-inappropriate, but mostly an ass.

She reminds me a bit of Rahne from early in her New Mutants days, when she was kind of self-hatting and seeing her mutation as making her a monster. The difference was Claremont made Rahne a three-dimensional person, and Aaron has sadly mostly made Oya into a caricature. Actually, it would probably be a good idea to put her and Rahne together at some point, help her with some of that self-hatred. Maybe with the new writer...
