You've seen that Dazzler thread. You read through that Chamber thread. You loved that Monet thread. You still go nuts over all those Rogue, Jean, and Cyclops threads. And you might even remember that Cannonball thead. But now, for your viewing and posting pleasure, I give my Top 10 Reasons, why Lorna Dana, aka Polaris, is by far, the fairest X-Man of them all.
10. SHE HAS GREEN HAIR.
Long before Viper, Dr. Samson, and Agent Brand came onto the scene, Lorna was proudly sporting the green do. Editors and writers seem to forget its part of her mutation, but the fact that she still has her green locks proves that she is still technically a mutant.
9. SHE WAS THE SECOND X-WOMAN TO SHOW THE X-BOYS WHATS UP.
Have you heard the phrase, "First is the worst, second is the best"? Well its true. While Jean was busy with Cyke, Lorna was busy getting her flirt on with the other x-boys. And she also showed her feminism in the 60s, before it was even cool.
HAVOK: Lorna and I'll look thru them for info on Karl Lykos!
ICEMAN: Just see that that's all you do, friend! Lorna's MY chick, remember!
LORNA: I'm nobody's property, Bobby, except my own! But this is neither the time nor place to talk about that! [Uncanny X-Men #61]
LORNA: Bobby's fun, Jean- but I'm nobody's girl! [Uncanny X-Men #60]
8. SHE IS ONE EDUCATED WOMAN.
She put her education before her superheroing when she and Havok quit the team to go pursue their degrees in geophysics. Half the X-Men probably didn't even graduate high school, let alone go to college. So props to Lorna for making college the cool thing to do.
7. SHE'S SASSY, FIESTY, AND FUNNY.
Lorna has always been one fiesty, sassy chick. She actually has a personality.
"I'm not one to criticize, but I've been eavesdropping on every one of your dramatic entrances...and you people are in desperate need of new material! Creative you're not." [Lorna lets the Genoshans have it in X-Factor #91]
6. SHE'S BADASS. DO NOT MESS WITH HER!!
Anyone remember that time she wiped out all the X-Men at her wedding without even breaking a sweat? Or that time she almost let Nurse Annie almost have it? Lorna is fierce. Her powers are strong. Do not cross her.
5. SHE'S HALF-JEWISH.
You may hate this retcon, but whether you like it or not, Lorna is Magneto's daughter. That makes her partially-Jewish. That is awesome.
4. SHE GETS POSSESSED, FINDS LONG-LOST RELATIVES, GOES CRAZY, AND GETS TURNED INTO HORSEMEN OF APOCALYPSE LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS.
Writers love having her get possesed and re-possesed over and over again. And when she's not brainwashed, her boyfriend is. Can't these two catch a break? But it's all good, because Lorna always triumphs in the end and shows the villains what's up.
3. HER COSTUME CHOICES WOULD GIVE JOAN RIVERS A HERNIA.
Love them or hate them, Lorna certainly loves having provocative costumes. Whether adorned with headpieces and skulls, bathing suits, or bat wings and a halo, Lorna still manages to pull each outfit off, because she's awesome. Anyone remember this "hormone inducing" outift?
2. HER BOYFRIEND IS HOT.
Whether you like them as a couple or not, Lorna and Alex will forever be a supercouple of the x-men. They've been on-again off-again since the 60s, and I personally think its time for Lorna to get knocked up and marry Alex once and for all. He's absolutely gorgeous, and Alex and Lorna are meant to be. They've been through as many trials and tribulations as Scott and Jean, but one thing has never changed: their eternal, undying love for each other. They're perfect together.
AND THE NUMBER ONE REASON WHY LORNA DANE IS AWESOME.................
I'm gay, but I'll admit it. She's hot. I'd tap that. Her boyfriend's hot. She's hot. They're a match made in comic book heaven.
Well, what do you guys think? Discuss, debate, relate, do it all. Post good Lorna quotes. Tell fun Lorna stories. Post pretty Lorna pictures. This thread took much longer to make then I anticipated, so you better have enjoyed all my hard work. GO TEAM LORNA!!!
