    What I found disagreeable was that she really needed Strange's tutoring. She's the Supreme Sorcerer of Limbo, gosh dernit.

well her training comes from Belasco and alternate version of x-men. Her magic was originally extremely limited when she was outside Limbo. And quite frankly she was messed up by the Phoenix despite the powerup we all thought she had gotten.

She obviously needed help, who else was out there for her to go to? Least she was smart enough to go to a Dr. Strange that didn't know about AVX.

    Hijack's power just seems like a specialized telekinesis (affecting combustion and electrical systems, primarily).

I see where you're going, just the word telekinesis is just wrong. More than movement, I think it's closer to what the little kid from Heroes had.

    I'm probably wrong, but I'm still sticking with the mystery guy being Archer of the XUE. Why? Aside from the blank-looking helmet, everybody from Bishop's timeline needs to be a rat-bastard race-traitor... except the dead one, Shard.

Think I read that the similar appearance was a coincidence. Still, I'd think anyone from Bishop's timeline with a grudge would be after Hope, not trying to increase mutant hatred. I think Archer was assumed dead when Genosha got destroyed. Also there was the other kid whose machine sent Alex to Mutant X world, think they declared him dead too.
