Then Austen decided to change things. In the years since, I've gotten used to the idea & am looking forward to Carey writing their reunion. And I really hope future writers develop a good relationship between them.
After looking at the cover art for Legacy 256 and 257 as well as the preview art for Legacy 255 out now I would say the first meeting between the X-Men in space and mind controlled Korvus, Havok and Polaris doesn't go all that well. We don't see Havok and Polaris on the preview page so we can assume that Polaris and Havok are battling Magneto. Though Havok may have already been taken down as he doesn't have much to defend against Magneto's iron/blood and other tricks. I think Frenzy and Gambit lose big from what we have seen so far but it remains to be seen what happens with the likely Havok and Polaris vs Magneto battle. Hopefully at least one of the X-Men in space end up breaking free by the end of next issue, but let's see how Mike Carey plays it.
Hopefully, if the X-Men in space are mind controlled into Five Miles four or five that Marvel finds time for some post mind controlled Lorna/Magneto development, but with everything going on in Schism and after there isn't alot of time for that, perhaps in the Magneto mini series though.
I was watching 90210 (i know) I found a striking resemblance to Silver-Lorna character
Mostly cause the silver went crazy storyline, Silver obsession to Dixon led her to kill her self pretty much as lorna, She was willing to kill Nurse Annie because of havok
there is resemblance Between parent relationship issues despite the pain Silver mother causes to her children silver was there for here same as polaris she is daddy little girl
And if you complain once more
You'lll meet an army of me
I'm hoping that Lorna receiving a Legacy cover first is some sort of indication that she'll be broken free of mind-control first.
By the way have you heard anything new on X-Men Legacy?
Back in June I noticed for the Polaris statue coming out in October brought up her time in X-Factor. Which wouldn't be all that unusual for an early 2000s statue, but was a bit for one today, that said they could have had prior warning of long term plans.
Polaris Statue. A Bowen Designs Sculpt! As the illegitimate daughter of Magneto, Lorna Dane was born with the power to control and manipulate magnetic fields, much like her infamous father. Long an ally of the X-Men, either with the team proper or with one of its associated teams like X-Factor, she went by the codename Polaris and had a long-time on-again/off-again relationship with fellow mutant, Havok. Mike Cusanelli recreates Polaris as a 12 inch statue that captures the magnetic beauty of this powerful mutant.

It seems like this arc would still remain centred on Rogue and te regular cast rather than Polaris, Havok and Rachel.
jmc- That statue is beautiful!
"We can fight all day, Sunfire. But I still won't belong to anyone- but myself. And it's been a while since I've been able to say that."- Polaris, X-Men #187.
I have to reiterate that I'm extremely happy with what I'm getting from Carey's last arc of Legacy so far. I'm honestly considering getting two issues of #255, for the pure and simple reason that I'd want to read one and the other could be left untouched.
Every character has potential. I hate seeing character fanatics scream about how theirs has more than any other. It doesn't justify being used.
I said she has loads of potential, and it's a great shame that for a character that's been around for more than 40 years, that potential hasn't really been used.
They're entirely different statements.
Only two? Three minimum for me and more if it's really good.I have to reiterate that I'm extremely happy with what I'm getting from Carey's last arc of Legacy so far.

Oh and if we are really lucky it sells out at the retail level which means we get a new issue with a different variant cover. A few thousand issues more then expected and it sells out. If it gets that it will be because of the cover which is one of the best if not the best X-Men Legacy has ever had and interest in Lorna's family story going forward.
