Reviews for The Mother of All Retcons

Thankfully, this is fanfiction because Lorna's tree would definitely be even more complicated than Jean's if it had been canon. Since in the comics, Erik is actually Lorna's father. It would be nice if there were a continuation to this, where they explain things to Pietro and Wanda. Which again in the comics was a lie about Erik and Magda being their parents cooked up by the High Evolutionary. And when thought about, it makes sense since Lorna is the one with magnetic powers and they aren't.

I'm still giggling. Does that mean Lorna is her own grandmother?
Bella Bordeaux chapter 1 . 5/27/2011
Lol, I could totally see Marvel doing this just to mess with our heads! A well written and funny piece :)
Princess613 chapter 1 . 5/3/2011
Please pass the brain bleach... I'll triple Marvel's offer for the rights to this. This would be awful.

At least now we know how Lorna and magneto could be related without her being his daughter...But she is his daughter, isn't she... Oh dear... Poor Magneto. He's his daughter's son... Don't send this idea to marvel please. They'd probably do it...Great work. I was laughing like crazy at the last line. tell Pietro? How about Max?

Hmm... Could I do an out take where they tell him? It could be really funny...

And Scott Summers runs off screaming into the night as he realizes who he's become related to... :)

Hilarious! And well-written too.

It explains so very many things...

...Lorna's her own grandma...

This story was fantastic! The buildup was absolutely superb, and even though I got it a little before the characters did (Because, well, how many other X-characters were born in 1928?), but the sheer obsurdity of the whole premise made me fall off my chair laughing anyway.

I get that this is obviously a jab at Cable (And Rachel. And X-Man. And any other Scott/Jean progeny that I forgot), but I thought it worked pretty well as a sly condemnation of the Magneto is/isn't/is Polaris' father series of retcons.

Lady Saiyajin chapter 1 . 8/11/2002
Whoa... very good! I like how everything connects!
rilo chapter 1 . 9/22/2000
Good. I love it. I'm speachless.
Esrom chapter 1 . 8/11/2000
LOL! A great sendup of the complicated history behind Cable. However, you really shouldn't be giving the X-Men writers any ideas! The X-Universe is convoluted enough as it is...(grin).

Hello! This was a Beautiful Slam on the idea Polaris had in the beginning that she was Magneto's kid, until they guys at marvel decided she wasn't (one of the ealriest retcons){For the uninitiated, that stands for "retroactive Continuiuty change", or changing the past to suit the present.. always to be feared, unless you LIKE the "it was just a dream!" cop-out that invalidated a major nighttime soap's full year before..}
