Magneto had to bring her to Genosha to break her out of it and give her life purpose again.
Yes and it makes me sick. Ever since she was created they have ALWAYS had her lean on a man. Whether its Bobby, Alex or Magneto, she cant stand on her own two feet without falling apart without a man by her side. Late X-factor seemed to be one of the few times she was single and actually doing well for herself. I really wish they wouldnt write her so weak. She's arguably one of the strongest mutants out there and its ironic how weak her character is in spite of that

I guess overall one thing Ive disliked about the way Lorna has been handled over the years is how inconsistent she's been. Its hard to get a feel for her and her character when they are always changing her up. For the most part, you know who Storm, Rogue, Emma, Jean, etc... are bc their personalities tend to stay consistent based on different writing but not Lorna as she's all over the place. Since returning she's been written by Morrison, Austen, Milligan, Brubaker and Yost. Each of their versions of Lorna was different. Milligan and Brubakers probably being the most similiar but then again they wrote her so generic that the character they called Lorna could have been anyone. I wish someone would see something in her and really take an interest in her and write the definitive version of Lorna.
