    This really doesn't have anything to do with X-Men. So why did you post it here?


Even though she is no mutant, she instantly reminded me Iceman & Dazzler (I could have thought about Lila Cheney too).

I am sincerely sorry. I didn't want to post an OT message. \:\-\(

    "Different powers" generally means boring. It's always best to stick with the iconic powers.


Yes but I think that cryokinesis is very generic. With fire & electricity, it is one of the most overused superpowers ever.

    Making her a pop star doesn't make her Dazzler any more than a reporter character being Superman.


No but I think that it is cliche & superficial to immediately associate Korea with K-Pop, idols & lolitas.
(thus, my comment about no headache during the brainstorming session)

Couldn't they have gathered information about Korean classic mythology, for example, and tried to make a character based upon it ?

I think that it was a good idea to create a female Korean superhero for the Marvel Future game (maybe, she could have become a character of the Marvel Universe, after that ? It already happened to Firestar ... who, granted, had a generic heat-based power. Still, in the comics, they made her power more original by explaining that, actually, it is based on microwave).

Still, sometimes, I'd like the writers to be more imaginative.
