XsPectre28's forum posts
Good thread! Was asking myself the same questions, but sadly, I have no answers, only additional questions to add :(
@xspectre28: Interesting thoughts about Bishop and how his memories were altered as a response to HOM, but this wasn't really the case for him, he just acted the way he did and his timeline was changed just because, or am I missing something?
idk, thats why i said a back story should have been done to wrap up everything revolving around Hope, if Bishop knew originally about Hope or any of the others that came from his timeline( Shard, Fitzroy, Kane, Greystone, Archer, Fixx) why did none of them other than Bishop make any mention or or reemerged when Hope popped up? (i think Fixx & Archer are still alive). also Cable's future also made reference to bishop's so why didnt cable know about Hope at first until Gambit told him the Phrase that cable used to discover the info about Hope in his own computer. the only excuse i could come up with is that with all the timeline alterations that occured the people that came from the future or have knowledge of the future should have known something because the knowledge should have been altered/overwritten with their old memories... the destiny diaries were targeted as well plus Mystique knew so that meant Destiny knew long before it happened which lead me to believe that destiny can see alternate futures as well.
yes after this happened they basically wrote Elixer off after his involvement with Necrosha. as for Rogue she still has to touch people to gain their powers i think but yes Hope erased the death-touch and all the personalities in her head and to me i think that it was because Rogue's power were stuck in a stagnant state in order to protect her mind from being taken over completely by personalities she absorbed. i feel that that stagnant state is the same with the five lights before Hope touched them and i feel that Hope basically reset her power but it wasnt until Xavier and Danger made contact with & helped fix Rogue's powers during Manifest Destiny that Rogue gained full control of her powers. yes there was no reference to Hope at all before Messiah Complex and i find that funny because if thats the case but you have to take into account that bishop helped to change his future im figuring plus this future timeline was altered around the whole HoM arc as well and when the world was reset he had some new memories to mix with his original ones as what happened when he went to the AoA. when HoM happened he probably knew then that Hope was coming but he was biding his time. (Dont remember but was Bishop targeted as well when the villains were attempting to limit the xmens access to information surrounding Hope???) the five lights were originally the ones who were suppose to take up the Phoenix 5 position and i find that interesting because with their connection to Hope i felt that they (The Lights) wouldn't have been corrupted by the Phoenix the way (Cyclops, Emma, Namor, Colossus, & Magik) were because they were still connected to Hope & Hope would have maintained their Humanity for them. as for the villains, there hasn't a been a X-villain team up like this for a long time. i loved the idea but yes the fact that only Sinister had a run in with Hope after she returned was not fully received i mean we know what Mystique's reasoning was for helping him, to betray him so she could use Hope to save Rogue. but what was Sinister's real reason for acquiring her: for the Phoenix force?? because she was meant to save the mutant race??? or just because she was the first mutant born since M-day.... it was never reveal. as far as Jean grey connection i think Hope is or shall i saw was suppose to be either the portion/shard of the phoenix was in Jean's likeness(Phoenix 1 after she took on Jean's appearance) or that she is the 616 version of Rachel Grey because there has been no resolution on the fact of whether rachel is truly scott&jean's daughter or scott&phoenix(in jean's form's daughter)
i feel that before some of these other arcs since second Coming back stories should have came out on Hope, Rogue, Bishop, & the Lights to tie up the loose ends around them but what we did get is Hope currently in a coma
Synergy- (Everett Thomas "JR"/EJ) clone of Synch weilds synch's powers except they activate differently due to the cloned body developing its own abilities. (Energy manipulation in the form of rainbow energy, synergy can "Synch with other mutants but physical mutations & powers resemble a rainbow energy form, examples: if he synch's with x23 he gains he healing factor and enhanced senses same as before but when he manifests her claws they are made of rainbow energy, when synching with cyclops his optic blast is made of rainbow energy. still can access other mutants abilities at full strength. mutant aura tracking, can harden rainbow aura as well as transform it into forcefields, weapons and travel on top of it like a "Rainbow Slide"
Wiccan- joined the x-ranks and is currently dating Synergy. aside from his former magic abilities he also gains the ability to create Hex Blades: Small energy blades that disrupt energy (Particularly magic), despell magic & illusions, & when effect people in the same manner as a real blade or can just affect the targets lifeforce (instead of physical damage it will weaken a person by draining them of energy)
Phaser- Son of Shadowkat & Namor due to an affair. Phaser is half mutant & half atlantean with the ability to "Swim" thru any form of atmosphere including (water, solid ground, air, lava, metal, & energy). while "Swimming" he is intangible, doesnt require to breath in this form. is trained vastly in most forms of martial arts and weilds a trident that can manipulate water due to the trident head being made of moon mineral & strong magnets created by forge. the trident basically creates a strong gravitational pull that only affects water.... strongest feat with trident is he can create a 15 foot tidal wave if near a sufficient amount of water
Lilly- daughter of Darwin & Blink. has the ability to teleport by transforming into pure energy & instantaneously materializing in another location. can use her teleportation in various forms including teleporting others & objects, deflecting, negating, & redirecting energy. is immortal, if dies in physical form she turns into energy than reanimates... (death time- 5minutes to come back to life after she dies)
Psion- Franklin Richards. even thou one of the most powerful mutants/beings in the universe, Franklin has seperated himself into two beings using his "Dream Walker ability as tattletale". the actual franklin is confined in a containment unit and houses his ever growing powers in an undisclosed location while the "Dream Self" manifest as a physical Psionic form and only has access to telepathy, telekinesis, & heightened senses & awareness
Anole- fully advanced form, not just his arm he has super strength, agility, sense, camouflage
Rockslide- full control, immortal unless head is loss in an area where there is no earth or rock in any form to regenerate himself.... example: his head is knocked off his body then thrown into space, he will remain "dead" as long as his head is drifting thru space but as soon as it comes into contact with the proper minerals he can reform. aside from taking a rock form, he can take on a magma form & can advance or decrease his size & shape.
Dust- Rockslide's girlfriend. dust has full control of her powers and uses in conjunction with rockslide to create powerful combo attacks
I would rather they do something unheard of and release it in two parts within a month or two of each other. Like say May and then in July. The money they would make would be huge. Or even go old school with an intermission and a long Godfather type movie as long as its done right.
Darwin's death was bullsh*t. Of course the only other person of color with cool powers dies first and the other black person betrays her friends and immediately becomes a villain trying to kill her former friends.
yes i dont feel as thou they did enough research on Darwin and how his powers actually work. as far as angel i was good with her betrayel because she did join the new Brotherhood in the New X-men run awhile back but yes her immediate dislike and attack on the others was overdone, i was hoping more for a arguement being thrown back and forth between her and one of the xmen on how she could still follow Shaw after witnessing Darwin's "Death"
its already happened, a few times actually but she always betrayed the xmen then it would turn out her betrayal had an ulterior motive... but i feel its almost time that she will leave her evil doer ways and become a fully dedicated xman
