    I am a fan of Spiral (Mostly because she's weird and I like her powers.), but I'm a little bit confused by her background. In the original Longshot series/mini series (Which I didn't care for all that much.), weren't her and Ricochet Rita separate entities? Didn't we see her and Spiral at the same time and place? I know that Ann Nocenti (Who created Longshot, Spiral and Mojo.) said that she didn't want Spiral to be Ricochet Rita, but that's how it turned out. I did a Wiki and everything, but I'm not sure if/how it makes sense.

    I know that Shatterstar has a convoluted origin, and I haven't read the X-Force storyline/issues that go over it (And I don't intend to, either.), but how are him and Spiral connected? What does Longshot have to do with it? I really don't care for Longshot all that much, but that's mostly because he has a lame power (Luck. Wow!). I did find him and Dazzler's relationship/romance interesting, though. Did that ever got followed up upon?


I think the writing was so bad at the time during that storyline in X-Force about Shatterstar, Spiral and Benjamin Russell there isn't a workable theory.

I think Peter David's X-Factor explained that Longshot and Shatterstar are somehow both father and son and son and father due to a timeloop. But that didn't take any of the Benjamin Russell stuff into account.
