I feel like it might be time to modernize these boards... A switch to the latest version of PHPbb message board software ( it's free and open source) would do this place good. Then conversations and threads wouldn't be buried, they would instead bounce right back to the front-page again. ^^

Aaanyways... back on topic.

"Most of the medallions were destroyed, and Jubilee doesn't have one anymore."

Are you certain? I don't recall seeing this mentioned anywhere, except stuff like where Northstar stole medallions off of vamps, and then Dazzler incinerates them.

In her last appearance as a full-blown vamp under Xarus control, lying on the floor after a beating, when the X-men burst in, she clearly still has her medallion.

Add to that, the light in her cell on Utopia looked very similar to daylight in the first VampU-Wolvie issue. Doesn't seem impossible that Dr Nemesis analyzed the medallions and created the habitat in her cell by determining how it works, and precisely which wave-lengths are non-harmful to vamps.

She's also seen standing and having a look at the sunset, which I think technically shouldn't actually be very fun if you're Vamp.

Of course, the no-prize for you, is that the UV-rads are simply to low to be dangerous after a certain time-stamp during sunset...

I suppose I've also got some confusion stemming from the tesseract-access medallion that VampU got from the female vamp. At first it wasn't clear what it was for, since Rockslide destroyed it in the first issue, leading me to think it was a day-walk medallion.

On the other hand, even more confusion ensues from issue #3, when the packaged box Wolvie opens up, that appears to be the actual tesseract's visible dimensions, spurts out more medallions, to boot.

Is the female vamp after more day-walk medallions..? Is she involved in a smuggling-ring for such medallions, now a hot comodity among vamps..?

Eh, you seem to have some points, but there's still a possibility for me to be at the very least slightly right, and I'll keep holding on to it, until I can get my hands on the last issue.

It would be utterly stupid not to destroy the amulets, even and especially in Jubilee's case.

The light in her cells definitely did not look like sunlight. It looks like typical fluorescent lighting. And she clearly was not wearing any medallion at this point, and it would be foolish to give her one.

Comics have words for reasons. If you read that scene, the narration states that the sun had already set, the light was not direct sunlight, and that's the most she can handle. It's always direct sunlight that is harmful. Sunsets/rises are never a problem.

eugenio abraham: the ex exposed guy




I did not read the Mutants vs Vampire story, but I did read the OS where Dracula was killed and the medallions were created by a clan of.. techological vampires (or something like that), so I wonder...

the xmen destroyed all of the medallions rigth? but is not posible for the vampires to just made more of those?

I'm sure they could make more.

Guardian, you were right. I've read Wolv'/Jubes #4 now, and it worked out pretty much exactly as you figured it.
