Thanks for sharing those sketches Justin. Would be nice to see the options he didn't go with if he ever decides to upload them. I like how she looks without the coat and gloves as well. Hopefully that version crops up from time to time. The costume's growing on me, but I'd still prefer if the headdress were put away to allow her hair to breathe once more.

I would certainly say so and keep in mind I had almost entirely positive things to say about her depictions in X-Factor 237, 241 and 243. Obviously, as I said at the time there were lines I had some issues with like in X-Factor 237 her basically calling Magneto a super villain, but it was a throwaway line and I felt the good aspects of her depiction vastly outweighed the one or two issues I had.It's not really unheard of for a fan to be upset over a one portrayal of a character or another. Different writers for the same character leads to different sets of fans and just because one set of fans enjoys a current portrayal of the character doesn't mean the entire fanbase does. For example many fans haven't been too keen on the direction Wolverine's character has been taken recently, but they still read the book and are entitled to comment on how they would to see things done rather than the way they are.
If some fans here had certain issues with her depiction in X-Factor 245 its their right. I did because it was at least for me pretty much devoid of the aspects of the character that interested me in her and had aspects that reminded me in a not nice way about Lorna before she came to care about anything other then herself and Havok. Now that might be a one shot deal time will tell. Fans reading the character are all allowed to express their personal views on her characterization in any issue or issues she has been in.

Anyway power wise Magneto and Lorna shouldn't be different (other then times like Genosha where one of their powers is messed up) given they both tap into external EM fields. The main difference is skill and he still has a few decades on her there. I think she closed the gap a couple decades in the 6 months Marvel time she was on Genosha, but there is still a difference there.

I love those sketches...but..is it just me or is something lost between Kirk's pencil work and the inked finishes? (The colours remain outstanding).
And one more thing...what does he have against knee-high, heeled boots that accentuate the lower leg?
Sun and Moon
...you couldn't have stopped me if you tried.
Storm deserves her very own solo ongoing...now!!! Written by BCW and illustrated by Phil Jimenez.
Either way I plan to keep reading X-Factor.

I do, however, take issue with people who don't read the book and would rather live in a fantasy/fan art world whilst shouting about how marvel is killing the character...
