The Return of Havok, Polaris & Marvel Girl: Spoiler Warning!!


This has been touched upon in other forums, but not in a topic of it's own.  I'm surprised at the fairly quiet response it's received so far.

 

Following on from the Age of X, it transpired that he being known as Revenant was in fact the consciousness of Rachel Summers who had been trying to telepathically reach someone back on Utopia at the moment that 'Moira'/X struck.  In an effort to reunite Rachel's disembodied psyche with her body, we're finally going to see the return of the three missing X-Men: Havok, Polaris & Marvel Girl.

 

The three space displaced X-Men have been mising for years, with the occasional appearance during cosmic cross-overs.  However, fans have been demanding their return ever since they were stranded in space, and it looks like Marvel has finally decided to respond.

 

How will they be saved?  Where are they at the moment?  How will they react to a relatively quiet existence back on Earth?  Will they make it back to Earth?  Will Magneto & Polaris be able to co-exist with the knowledge that Magneto chose to save Kitty Pryde, but not bother searching for his own daughter?  Will they remain with Rogue's new ensembled team?  Will Havok & Polaris remain a couple... or will he fall for another PiS-created stripper/nurse?

 

We don't know the exact details yet, but here's a popular taster that's been flying around the internet:

X-Men: Legacy

This looks very interesting.
But as far as Magneto and Polaris goes I thought that they never reconciled although the last story that i had read about the two of the interacting with each other was WAY back when the U.N had given Magneto Genosha. (I know ages ago right?)
Did they reconcile after that?

Magneto came upon Kitty by accident in space. If one doesn't know space a very very large place and even if he knew she was out there which there was no on pannel proof of at the time, especially given this was early after him joining the X-Men he would have had no idea where she might be or if she is in trouble or not. Even Mike Carey said its only going to be with the help of Rachel that they are going to have any idea where they are. The storyline is titled Five Miles South of the Universe, so my guess is they are a long long ways away. And Carey all but said even with Rachel's info they are going to have some trouble finding them.

 

There are bigger issues that Polaris and Magneto have to deal with like the fact they haven't interacted in over a decade and alot of stuff since then has gone on that they need to talk about. When they get home they will also have to deal will the backstory of Lorna's mother. They also should deal with the fact that Magneto and Polaris were repowered using celestial tech (the tech that created mutants) and answer the question for fans if they are currently mutants or not.

That pic is awesome! I missed these X-men and I am more than glad to see their imminent return! ^^

About time! So looking forward to this!

Also, that cover looks weird. Havok, Frenzy, Gambit and Rachel look horrible, but Polaris and Rogue look beautiful.

I think Magneto's saving of Kitty is understandable. She was travelling in a metal space bullet. Moreover, Magneto has mentioned the abnormal properties of the metal, something he could have noticed, not to mention the speed at which it was travelling.

Rachel Summers.

So Rachel Summers isn't hiding her facial tattoos anymore? That's weird.

Posted by Jake Fury

That is weird that they depicted her with her old hound markings.

I do enjoy the idea of a team with Rogue, Havok, Rachel, Polaris and Gambit.....I guess I'll take Magneto and Frenzy in there too. I think the ones lost in space are gonna have a lot of questions about what the hell has been going on on Earth.

Posted by madrid_san

Marvel Girl, aka Rachel Summers.

About dang time! 

Posted by FadeToBlackBolt

Yikes, I cannot stand that team. Almost as though it was created specifically to be awful (for me, I'm positive others love it).

Posted by papad1992


Frenzy getting some lime light... YAY (hopefully she realizes that all these years she's looked like a hooker and decide to switch to her Age of X outfit!!)

 

What I want to see is:

 

A reunion between Rachel and Kitty

A reunion between Cyclops and Havok

Reconcilation between Magneto and Polaris (or at least a conversation... gosh that whole family is so strange to each other!)

Havok and Polaris' relationship...

Their expressions to the news that Nightcrawler is dead!

The response to see that Magneto is on the side of good (for now...)

Annie Ghazikhanian's Return!! (with her son Carter!)

Do you think that he used it as a play to make the X-Men trust him a bit more, or do you believe that he was genuine in wanting to save Kitty, or perhaps a mix of both?

I'm not sure, to be honest. I'm not even sure why he's with the X-Men, in all honesty, it doesn't really make sense.

@The Dark Huntress

Well if he did try to obtain the X-Men's trust... he's gained it to an extant!! But the question is why?? Maybe he's doing this performance of this disguise of a "reformed" and hurt villain to secretly gain the approval of all of the villains that sit dormant on Utopia!! The "ex" villains aren't doing anyhting but sit there!! (With the exception of Frenzy now). Toad used to be Magneto's follower slash right hand man... I haven't even seen a conversation/interaction between the two... even though they live together on the same island within arms reach!! It would be cool to see if this upcoming event Schism will bring out Magneto's true colors as a villain with the aid of his new Brotherhood army!! The villains are all there waiting for direction... all they need is a leader since their supposed mutant leader Cyclops is doing anything to help them!!

I was under the impression the whole point of Magneto as a character was that he wants to protect his race from a Holocaust like the one he experienced as a child and is willing to go to certain extremes that Xavier wouldn't to do that, not that Magneto is evil and Xavier and Scott are good.

 

Lately Scott has been using alot of Magneto's views to protect the mutant race including mutant separatism and killing threats to mutants. Basically, Scott has taken on enough of Magneto's views that he is willing to support him and help guide him in his efforts to protect the mutant race.

Or... Magneto is manipulating Cyclops through innocent suggestions and thus Cyclops becoming more and more militaristic and tense... in comes the next event "Schism" where Cyclops' more strict rules oppose Wolverine's views!!
Posted by lorex

I am looking forward to seeing them return as Havok and Rachel as among my favorite X-Men characters. I am wondering why Rachel's facial markings are visible now after being covered up for so long. I am sure when they get back for a while things will be good, but
Alex has a history of chafing under his brothers leadership, so I can only wonder how long he will be able to stand Scott as the central leader of all mutants for very long. Just a thought.

He was like that before Mags. He's been on this road for a long while. 
Posted by ChrisAngel

Well if you as me, Perhap's rachel has been out there so long there's really no reason to hide thos hound scars any longer....or she simply hasn't felt the need to, perhaps she's come to grips with what  she is and what was done to her, to the point that it's no longer a sore spot to her. In the case of Cyclops however, I will agree that from what I've read in recent times, he has become a bit more of a hardliner, To the point in some ways if you put him up against his younger self, you'd might find the man unrecognizablr in his stance.

Cyclops isn't an impressionable young girl, he's a man! Cyclops had embarked on his current path of action before Magneto came along and joined the X-Men.

I like Magneto but the more I think about it, the more ridiculous it seems he'd be on the X-Men. The master of magnetism doesn't need to low-level of security the X-Men can provide for him. Moreover, if we wanted to, he could rally up a massive following. He must have some massive ulterior motive ( along with the High Evolutionary, I'm betting).

@Halle Romanova: 

I know he's been on that path since Hose of M concluded!! Cyclops feels like the fate of mutantkind is on his shoulders and he doesn't want to lose anyone!! I'm just saying Magneto is acting like the angel/devil shoulder consciousness... he's appearing innocent but I feel his true colors will appear throughout the remainder of the year!!

Read Prelude to Scism #2 out this week, it gets into Magneto's mind about his view of Scott and other things.

I'm looking forward to seeing that conflict/resolution as well. And just having favourite characters like Havok and Rachel back will be awesome. 

I'm frankly not sure why people are so confused by Magneto's presence with the X-Men. It's not like this is the first time he has sided with them and tried to make it work. He was a member of the X-Men in the 80's. Before that he helped mentor/form the New Mutants team. He has come and gone from the team a number of times when he felt it served the interests of mutant-kind, and has shown a willingness to reform and/or give Xavier's view a chance. It just doesn't always last as he obviously tends to take a much more hard-line view.

Mags has gotten old maybe he needs the X-men to feel protected XD

Posted by papad1992

I think Rachel will feel more comfortable with her markings showing because other mutants (Loa and Gentle) have tattoos/markings on their faces and bodies as well!!
Posted by HexThis

I'm excited about this, I love X-men Legacy! It's focuses on all the right characters!

Posted by CellphoneGirl

I'm starting to like X-Men legacy more and more.

YES ABOUT TIME!!<3

Finally! Also, Havok should get his own team. He deserves it!

when was annie a stripper xerox

@ChrisAngel: Rachel may not possess either the raw power or skill to conceal her tattoos on a minute-by-minute basis after the events of Messiah Complex
Posted by jmc247

It will be an interesting reunion in space given as far as Lorna knows Magneto is dead.
Posted by jordama

Nice, knew it was a matter of time
Posted by papad1992

So, now that Havok, Polaris, and Rachel are returning... I'm just gonna wait until Lifeguard, Thunderbird III, and Slipstream do the same!!!
Posted by Baddamdog
@papad1992: think you may be waiting a while dude
Posted by papad1992

@Baddamdog
:(

 

I'm sad... So asking for Sage to return also is pointless too!?

Posted by x_lover1

Finally! I loved these characters for like ever! I think Havok might side with Wolvs considering that by now, Havok might be VERY upset because Scott's the Big Man now, Cable's dead, Nightcrawler's dead, and now instead of mourning them, they focused on the Messiah. Lorna will follow Havok for obvious reasons! and Rachel might side with Wolvs because her bro's dead! 


I wonder what'll be the reaction to Hope...
Posted by danhimself

I think I'm more concerned with what the message was that Rachel was trying to pass along to Emma or the Professor

Posted by riri4life

Very excited.....but still kinda bummed it turned out to be Rachel and not Jean. *Kanye shrug*

Posted by Aheld92

My favorite sisters are coming back at the same time!! Polaris and Scarlet Witch!!
