A mystery 44 years in the making -not comic book years, but real years- is finally unveiled. Lorna Dane, the green haired mutant later known as Polaris debuted way back in X-Men #49 (1968) and ever since, her origins had been a surrounded in a shroud of secrecy. Her parents had died in a plane crash, but at the same time, Magneto was rumored to be her real father -a fact that writers struggled to maintain valid over the years.

With this issue, Peter David finally puts an end to the speculation and ambiguity regarding Polaris' heritage. Taking story elements that go all the way to 1968, and as recently as 2002 -when Lorna went REALLY crazy after surviving the destruction of Genosha- Mr. David answers the lingering question in a way that respects all the characters involved, avoids retcons, and more important, explains Polaris' erratic behavior in the last decade and potentially primes her for a new start crazy-free. Thank you!
