the girl appearing in NM 34, is she the AOA version? she is using the lavender darts though. i have moved to a new country and i am thinking of subscribing for new mutants for blink and legacy...
Rogue, Thor, Blink, M, Penance, Karma, Namora (RIP ).
Thor will smash puny humans with big hammer
this is 616 blink. and she has no immunity to her powers.

I've been thinking of late about who Scott Lobdell might have intended Blink’s parents to be, as I imagine many were dissatisfied with her being an ancestor of Apocalypse.
There are some potential candidates, such as:
>Aurora: Jeanne-Marie Beaubier was born in Montreal, Quebec and in UXM 316, the first part of the Phalanx Covenant, Blink’s hometown seems to be placed in Quebec, Canada (Lobdell did write Alpha Flight after all so may have intended a link here);
>Gambit (the energy darts) and Lila Cheney (interstellar teleportation);
>Given her “Blink” powers, was she going to be connected to the M’Kraan Crystal (interesting that her skin was the same colour as Jahf and she had “crystalline” facial tattoos). We never did find out who the race were that lived in the city within the Crystal (at least not back then).
Then there’s the similarity of appearance between Blink and Marrow (the two could perhaps be siblings since both throw darts they draw from their own bodies, one from their mutant energy, the other from bone).
Does anyone have any cool theories of their own?
Has anybody seen her appearance in the preview for next week's New Mutants #41? She is really stealing the show! I liked her in the NM arc a few months ago, but can't get enough of her new personality in this issue, can't wait!
Why pick one theory when you can combine them all?
So...Clarice appeared in New Mutants for a few issues...disappears...comes back for one issue...disappears again? Was anything explained after her "happy-go-lucky" episode in NM?
I picked up one of the NM issues that looked like it was dealing with Asgardian gods, and quickly put it down when I didn't see Blink. Was really hoping to get to see her consistently.
