Sunfire was great in AoA. I feel like he showed up in one of the weird late 90s early 00 teams for half a year or so too. Also maybe there was a second sunfire at some point?

There was a second Thunderbird but I don't think there was a second Sunfire.

You're probably thinking of Mariko Yashida, who was Sunfire in Exiles

This is a great lineup but did Hickman ever reveal the super secret awesome insider secret Hickman reason why Jean is still wearing her high school clothes or did that just...go nowhere?

He has a sister with the same powers but her codename was Sunpyre, I think? And then Exiles had a version of Wolverine's ex Mariko that was queer and also Sunfire.

I hadn't thought about that. Have Rogue and Synch been in a book together before?

synch was in generation x from his introduction in phalanx covenant until his death. he stayed dead until krakoa, so he was never a formal x-man or on any other teams. i just think it is wild that they have someone who copies powers on the same team as someone who borrows them.

Yeah, I knew he was mostly Generation X, I was just wondering if maybe Rogue guested in the book ever.

did he ever imply there would be a super secret awesome insider secret Hickman reason for Jean to wear the Marvel Girl outfit other than "he thinks its a good costume" which is what he said when it was first shown

I always hated the old Marvel Girl costume, but it's honestly grown on me since HoX/Pox.

Do not attempt to interact with the hogs.


I do enjoy Sunfire’s gimmick of leaving, because he doesn’t want to be here

If he likes it, cool, but it does read to me as a grown-rear end woman wearing a sundress she used to wear in 10th grade.

Between resurrections and sliding time scale Jean Grey is in her late 20's at most. If she just aged normally she's about the same age as Spider-Man and Marvel refuses to let him turn 30 in the main continuity. She's died and come back to life multiple times.

If a woman of 30 was dressing like she did when she was 16, it would seem a little out of place in most cases.

Mask aside, I knew a bunch of women that would wear a green dress when they were 27-32 years old.

I know plenty of people who would love to have the figure they had when they were younger. Jean is living the dream, no shut up Magneto the dream isn't dead I can still fit into those pants I know I can

Also when did the Green Dress Yellow mask costume first appear? It wasn't Uncanny #1 in 1963.

I think somewhere near the end of the first uncanny run, maybe early 70s?

Uncanny X-Men 39/40. 1968. So about 5 years into the run, where the X-Men have sort of graduated. I believe that everyone except Bobby are supposed to be in their 20's around this time.

Also I guess discussing what age the X-Men are now is kinda pointless. Their bodies are aged to whatever they want with resurrection protocols.

Billy-Vell (@williamaximoff) asked: Marvel Girl going back to her old ’60s costume is probably the most controversial wardrobe change in a while, can you talk about why she’s wearing it again, and if there’s any chance she might get a new one(or even go back to another old one)?

Jonathan: I’m not going to lie, this one has been disappointing.

I was pretty sure everyone would figure this out as soon as House of X #1 hit the stands. And while I’m not going to spoil the story for you, I will say go back and look at the most famous time she put this costume back on. That should help.

The most famous time she put the costume back on is probably the moon battle with the Shi'ar over her being Phoenix.

Right, and nothing of the sort has happened in Hickman's book, which is why I'm wondering if he's ever going to actually elaborate on this...what, deep-dive rationale for Jean wearing her old things that he's disappointed at everyone for not figuring out.

Especially with this whole "I'm not going to spoil the story for you" bit. That implies that there's actually, y'know, a story behind this. But we never got it, so....thanks for playing coy about what turned out to be nothing at all, I guess? vv
