Nico and the Witchbreaker Staff.

#1 Posted by AngelFrost (2850 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm like very behind on the Runaways comics, I'm only on like Volume 2 or something.

So whats the deal with the 'Witchbreaker Staff' ?

I know it's like, more powerful or something
But how does she activate it?

does she say 'When Blood is Shed let the Witchbreaker Staff emerge' ? A mouthful....and doesn't flow as good as the original incantation.

and what happend to the Original Staff of One... is someone walking round casting spells or is it just dissapeared?


I miss the Staff of One.

Same! I haven't picked up the series since Brian K. Vaughan left and Whedon took over and I'd like to know exactly what he changed about Nico, 'cause I don't want her to change too drastically!

Info anyone?

Yeah, I loved the Brian K. Vaughan version and the art used to great
But the current art looks too childish and silly.

Yea it hasn't really been discussed. But the witchbreaker, her ancestor, tortured her then gave her the new staff. I think the witchbreaker has the staff of one. And it still comes out of her body but I don't think she's said the whole thing.
I hate the new art too!!

Yes! The current art is horrible.
They all have MASSIVE feet.

I don't know if it's just a typo or they just didn't want any change, but according to my Runaways/Secret Invasion it says Staff of One in the incantation.

@panda21595:  it does?  woww.  It must be a typo, or the writers messed up on that one.  
I didn't think saying  'Staff of One' would work when trying to summon the 'Witchbreaker Staff'

@AngelFrost: What I'm guessing is that they are related somehow (the staffs) and that the incantation can work on both, but i'm not the writer :D

Could the knew staff be like a upgrade?

@panda21595: Yeah, your probably right. :/ but it just seems weird and un-thought of that the incantation would work for a different-named staff.  They could've atleast called it the Staff of Two or somethingg,  lol.
Well Nico got the staff of one from her Great-Grand-Mother. So, I think it is a new staff, but a more upgraded version of her old one.
