It's brought a lot of characters to the forefront as the war rages.....Havok, Vulcan, Polaris, The Fraternity of the Raptors, Blastaar is entering soon!!!!....and oh, man Darkhawk.....Darkhawk, Darkhawk, Darkhawk.......I'm just at a loss for words after the last issue....And I'm still curious as to what happened to Korvus' blade and Rachel's Phoenix power.......:marvelgirl:[/quote] Does the Name Jean Grey ring a bell? Most likely she's calling back the missing pieces of the PF.[/quote] I remember her saying " not now, mom" after it happened, but with happened in Uncanny Xmen #511, I thought that would have been Jean returning...because she Is The Phoenix.....it's a given she's bound to return...but she didn't then....My thing is, those remnants of the Phoenix power were already left with Rachel and in Korvus' blade...even when Jean was alive. I just think that it heavily favored Vulcan that she lost it and in my opinion, helped turn the tide of the War in his favor before Gladiator's defection and the help of the Fraternity of the Raptors in King Blastaar.

      i think i'd like it alot more if vulcan wasn't the third summers brother. i've never liked his backstory, and always thought he posedtoo many questions as to how cyclops reacted to him. xx
