Does this mean Molly is no longer a mutant? Perlmutter strikes again.

On a related note, I added some tags for the other Runaways.

"Put your shoes on, girls!" should totally be the new rallying cry of the Runaways.

On one hand, please get Victor a body again soon.

On the other, please don't because his facial expressions are hilarious.

People with mutated DNA can have mutant children

Like Franklin Richards

But grandma didn't intend for Molly to get super strength. She just called her a miracle.

Molly's parents were both telepaths and somehow their kid has a completely dfferent power. That's a change, a mutation.

There's also the fact that the X-men and Cerebro think Molly is a mutant. They've detected the X-gene in her.

A future version of Molly just appeared in X-men Blue this week and was part of a mutant team.

A retcon for Molly would take a bit more work since most readers and writers still think of her as a mutant, and even then we don't know how long a hypothetical retcon would last, Cebulski may roll back some of the mutant retcons. Cloak and Dagger's mutant status went back and forth for years before they settled on not.

Plus, Disney is buying Fox and getting the Film and TV rights back to the X-Men and FF properties anyway.

While I'm still kind of hesitant on this new Runaways comic, I am glad that the writer is finally tackling the messed up relationship between Karo and Nico. Not because I want it to be a romantic relationship, but rather that during the initial run I never felt Vaughan himself figured out what he wanted that relationship be. Even after the rejection, which was fine, there were these weirds tones between the two and, at least that I can remember, there was never that scene where they re-established the rules of their friendship.

Having written that, I absolutely love that Karo stayed true to Julie there and that they seemed to indicate that Nico always went after Karo when she was unavailable as that would actually work with the character and her loneliness.

Now that we've established Chase is capable of using a time machine to rescue people and bring them back from the dead, I'd love to see him just start going back to rescue other people. Like Juston and Mettle from Avengers Arena. :)

We can hope, right?

He ran out of the fuel that powers the time machine

And before they go plucking even more people from the past they should probably find the last girl they grabbed, Klara. You know the little kid who they rescued from marital abuse and then let get taken away by CPS?

Before THAT, they need to go find Xavin. Although I don't want Karolina and Julie to break up, so maybe leaving Karo's ex out of this is for the best.

Xavin was part of this group, they developed friendships among them outside of their relationship with Karolina.

Xavin deserves better than being reduced to an afterthought who is left to rot in a space gulag because they might be an obstacle to Karolina's new girlfriend.

Honestly, I agree. I liked Xavin, and the more we saw of them as a genuinely genderfluid character (and moreover, a character of color), the more I liked what they brought to the team. I just don't want their return to herald another opportunity for Marvel to move backwards rather than forwards with a character relationship, y'know?
But I'll always consider Xavin to be a true Runaway... moreso than I ever thought of Klara as such. (Maybe if we'd seen more of Klara as part of the group...)

Karolina's still with Julie? Awesome. :)

Apparently we'll get more of Julie in issue 7... she and Karolina are on the cover, according to Rainbow Rowell's Twitter.

That relationship has always seemed pretty shallow, it's never gotten any real development or focus.

The entire extent of it seems to be "these two girls both like girls and fly with rainbows".

It's also only been shown like, a few times since neither character has gotten a whole lot of screen time in -years-. So hopefully, Rowell can do something to make it work for the audience. :)

Wasn't there weirdness with Molly's origins since the beginning? IIRC, it was mentioned that she was tested negative for the X-gene, so her parents were surprised when she manifested powers. And in her very first scene, her dad gets her age wrong significantly but tries to cover up his mistake.

Also, while I'm at it, did anyone else always find the whole incestuous parents angle really weird? It's such a big thing for Vaughan to just throw in there, yet it never has any bearing on his run. So what was even the point? Plus, it goes against the whole original concept of the Pride where, despite being villains, they were just normal parents to their kids.

I recall they were explicitly referenced as such in the issue that showed the Pride's formation, but I don't have the issue on hand to check.
