The information about Generation Hope 6 suggests that the new Light is about to activate already. From the cover of the issue it looks to be a baby still in the womb. This would mean that even if the light comes to live on utopia with the X-Men the Team would still be the Five Lights. From the cover it looks like the Light will have some kind of psychic powers. When searching for the cover for Generation Hope 7, it was "classified" but I did find this cover on one website. This would further suggest that the Baby is psychic and that the baby is controlling the staff an patients of the hospital. From the looks of the staff it appears to be very Anglo and western, so what countries do you think the baby could be from? For some reason I'm think the baby is from the UK or Eastern Europe. My current theory is that the child is from Ireland. This fits into the Anglo idea and the arc title is Ward, this could be a play on the child's name (Ward is a fairly common Irish last name).
THIS STORY WILL BE TALKED ABOUT FOR YEARS! A new light pings into existence on Cerebra. A new mutant life is out there. A new mutant life needing Generation Hope's help, before his nascent power consumes him. Can the newest team of mutants in the world save this newest mutant? If you miss this, you only have yourself to blame.
So What do you think, is it too soon to have another Light activate? Does the fact that it is a baby seem like a cop out? Do you think contact with the mother will make it okay or does Hope have to wait for the child to be born?
