Re: Otherworlders

Otherworlder humans do not possess any innate powers. Their genes might be unique and relevant to certain obscure facets of Otherworld life, but that is all.

Re: Monolith's Power Descriptions

Warpath has never lost the power to fly, but he has used it significantly less since joining the X-Men (UXM #475). Christopher Yost, writer for X-Force (3rd series), once did an interview where he said Jimmy just wasn't comfortable flying. He is still capable of it though, and flew in X-Force at the...

Re: Monolith's Power Descriptions

He can still fly. He was more discreet in general with his powers when they were overcharged by M-Pox during the Avengers Idea Mechanics era, so power demonstrations were fewer and further between.

1) No, they were never fleshed out. Some telekinesis, but further explanation wasn't provided. 2) Fitzroy was predominantly a teleporter who could move through time as well as space. Only later as the Chronomancer did he develop tricks like freezing people in time or accelerating them to decay. Temp...

Re: Punisher Continuity

Frank's gone for the cheaper, urban warrior chest piece in a number of his recent series. Omega Effect touched on Punisher (9th series), which continued into Punisher War Zone (3rd series) #1-6, also featuring Rachel Cole-Alves and Frank v. the Avengers. He was in Red Hulk's Thunderbolts after that....

Re: Psylocke (Betsy & Kwannon)

IIRC, the "low-level empathy" of Kwannon was mentioned once off-handedly in the 90's. It was flavor added to help explain how Kwannon's body could support Betsy's telepathic powers -- she was already inclined towards psychic abilities. However, I don't think it was ever meant to be like Empath's emp...

Re: Psylocke (Betsy & Kwannon)

Six of one, half dozen of the other. The destruction of Styx's body led to the creation of Betsy's current one. Whether the substance of Betsy's body emerged from the energy of Styx's mind, the matter of her body, or a combination of both, isn't entirely specified. Betsy retains her combat skills. T...

Re: Psylocke (Betsy & Kwannon)

It has not been 100% clear what powers Betsy and Kwannon currently possess, or at what levels. However, both apparently continue to possess both telepathic and telekinetic abilities to some degree. Betsy retains her combat skills and can forge psychic energy into weapons. She is leaning away from he...

Re: Mutant X

The Six's Bloodstorm reappeared in Paradise X, as part of an alternate reality team. As Lavettye mentioned, Evil Havok emerged briefly from our Havok's body in Exiles #28-30. I don't think anyone else from Mutant X has popped up since.

Replace "the mutant plague" with "Hope Summers", and Time Fugitives basically turns into Messiah CompleX. Cable vs. Bishop to control the present based on their different perspectives on the future.

Re: Nightcrawler Questions

It hasn't been mentioned overtly in many years. But then, it wouldn't be unless there was a reason. The depiction of Kurt being transparent instead of just super-shadowy mostly comes from that Excalibur run alone.

The extra-dimensional explanation came from the original OHOTMU in 1982, long before Science of the X-Men was published. That information was not included in the OHOTME Deluxe Edition, published in 1985. Various OHOTMUs since then have or have not stuck with the idea. The reasoning behind the explan...
