NX tweet on Polaris and Magneto

Something I’ve been meaning to post for a while now and just never got around to it before.

NX is an official Netflix Twitter account. I think it’s the studio behind their original programming, but I’m not certain about that. The first tweet in this string was rating other well-known X-Men characters, and a lot of people asked for their thoughts on other characters.

I’ve seen a lot of Lorna referred to as underrated, and at this point, I don’t think it’s an accurate estimation of how the general public views her. I think it’s an estimation of how Marvel views her. A lot of people take their cues on how they think the general public sees a character based on how Marvel treats them.

Wolverine is overrated because he gets way more emphasis than he should from Marvel. Magneto is overrated for the same reason. Likewise, Lorna gets almost nothing from Marvel, and typically has things stolen from her to benefit other characters. Ergo, she’s underrated, otherwise Marvel would treat her better. Right?

But she’s really not underrated by the general public. You don’t know what you don’t know, so people who don’t realize she exists aren’t able to rate her. And the people who DO know she exists and have put much thought into her, they seem to realize she has way more potential than Marvel’s been willing to acknowledge and use.
