    Putting in Viper and not Polaris = fail. Somewhat expected though. I’d place the blame on Marvel as usual, but I was informed that Warner Brothers owns the Lego games and Marvel may not have had much input, so they’re off the hook this time.

    This is looking better and better all the time!

    Two things…

    There are, I think, something like 250~ characters in total, and they’ve revealed about 30~ of them so far? So… yeah.

    And to be honest, I’m glad that Polaris isn’t there. She’s a poster girl for comic book over-sexualisation and pervy writer-abuse (she was so clingy with Samson it was sickening). I can’t understand your obsession with her. :I

    I can understand geeking out over some characters, definitely. Jen Walters, for example, who had the only truly meaningful thing to say throughout the Civil War arc. Plus, she’s the Marvel Universe’s best lawyer, and absolutely brilliant in the social sciences. Now I can understand geeking out about her.

    I can also understand geeking out about Sue Richards, who’s never really been sexualised, and has always been represented as a strong, intelligent lady. She’s had her moments of weakness, all heroes have, but she’s never been in a constant chain of fail and frail like some superheroines are locked into. (I swear some writers are virgins.) So I can understand geeking out about her, too.

    But Polaris?

    Why Polaris?

    Is it because “sexy?”

    And this is a LEGO game, so “sexy” is out, anyway.

    I don’t understand.

    @2: Yeah, and I guarantee Lorna won’t be among that 250 characters. Because she never is. The only appearances they’ve ever allowed for her in video games were in the background as an unnamed extra.

    Based on your attitude toward Lorna, it seems you either have never seen the good depictions of Lorna, or you have but you are set on keeping those depictions in mind as the only ones that count.

    While many people look to Lorna’s first run of X-Factor as her best depiction, and to be fair it WAS a big improvement from how Claremont was writing her (as a pathetic weakling afraid of characters she could in reality trounce with ease), where she really picked up was in the early 00s.

    First, she was part of Magneto’s Genosha, set up as next in line for the country. Genosha got demolished, and she had to suffer through reliving the horror of the genocide of millions of mutants that looked up to her as one of their protectors and saviors. This led to her insanity, because you’d expect a lot of mental damage after major trauma. During this, Alex left her at the altar, which allowed her to give a big show as a pissed off bride on a path of vengeance, pushed too far too many times. She got to be powerful, and darkly snarky, a very powerful badass.

    Then she lost her powers on M-Day. And had an identity crisis over it. Drama over what that meant for her identity as a person to no longer be a mutant and no longer have her powers. Unfortunately, she was later written acting really bizarre, and she had a very bad spell of being depicted mostly poorly once again. Because “nostalgia” from people that never cared about what happened to Lorna until she started being awesome enough to garner attention that their favorites weren’t getting.

    Lately, she’s finally been confirmed to be Magneto’s daughter and a mutant again, and FINALLY got an (awesome) origin story after existing for 45 years without one for no legitimate reason, and she’s going to interact with Pietro (her brother) soon. Also, despite most of the past half a decade sucking for depiction of Lorna, she WAS allowed to interact with two other family characters (Crystal and Luna, out in space) where she got to troll them in a playful, friendly way.

    In addition, we got some VERY awesome depictions of Lorna interacting with her sister Wanda in Exiles, Fantastic Force, and the Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon. You can look them up yourself, but suffice to say, she was awesome in all three.

    … Meanwhile, you claim that Sue Storm has never been sexualized and has always been represented as a strong and intelligent lady. Which is false on both counts. On the sexualization front, Sue was given the costume with the 4 boob window not long after the birth of her first child, and it caused such an uproar that they had to explain it as “lol she was controlled by Malice.” On the “strong and intelligent lady” front… read some of the original Fantastic Four comics. Seriously, read them. I don’t think Sue needing to be saved and getting ordered and slapped around by Reed makes for depicting a strong and intelligent lady.

    Hell, I’ll link a couple bad cases now.

    The point of these links isn’t to claim that Sue Storm is currently weak, or stupid. The point is to show that all characters have points where they’re depicted like shit. It’s happened to Lorna, it’s happened to Sue, it’s happened to just about all characters. Claiming a character sucks just because the depiction you know them for was a shitty one is short-sighted, in the same way that it would be asinine of me to say Sue Storm has always been a weak, stupid insult to women based entirely on the treatment of her shown in those links. Sue’s treatment has improved. So has Lorna’s.

    Nobody cares about Lorna. She hasn’t had a relevant storyline in years and isn’t in any of the movies. The last time she was an X-Man she went absolutely bat-shot crazy. She’s one character amongst potentially hundreds.

    Her few good moments are vastly outweighed by her constant screw ups to the point where “being batshit crazy” is practically a bulletpoint in her character description.

    She’s been barely relevant to the lore for the last decade, bar the whole short lived Starjammers thing, which is one of the very fee stories she’s ever had that painted her in any sort of positive light. She barely has any actual identity or personality.

    Viper is in the game because she was in a recent movie. There’s nothing more to it than that.

    You get caught up on the most semantical shit sometimes.

    “… Meanwhile, you claim that Sue Storm has never been sexualized and has always been represented as a strong and intelligent lady.”

    That isn’t even remotely what he said. He said she never really been sexualised as in, it’s not a *common* thing. Obviously there are going to be a few idiot writers and artist who are the exception to the rule, but it’s not what you think about when it comes to the character.

    Lorna on the other hand, is 3 times out of 4 fucking up, emotionally unbalanced, and making everyone else suffer for it. She’s one of the franchises worst characters.
