      Um. How can anyone in the world not know who Juggernaut is?

    Possibly 3rd Worldish country, hick level news agencies, etc?

I don't think such places should exist in Europe in 2019.

      Given the circumstances, Pyro isn't surprising. At best, he's only ever been a fair weather good guy. Random has usually been sorta bad. Sure, he helped defend Utopia when he lived there, but before that, he was attacking the mansion with Exodus' Brotherhood/Acolytes.

    What about his superhero tenure on X-Factor? That established a lasting core personality trait in many readers mind?

He only ever served his own ends with X-Factor, although he seemed to have true feelings for Polaris. Immediately after he broke with them, he was joining the Acolytes and other baddies. And he's been a baddy ever since.

      Cold shmold. If they've got Dark Beast working with them, there's no resaon not to include Hope. Lovely to see New Mutants defending Dark Beast. [/sarcasm] They know he almost killed Sam's brother, right?

    But it's not "two wrongs make a right".

Eh. Hope is still not a fuzzy Dr. Mengele like Dark Beast. I still don't trust his "cure" of the New Mutants kids. There has to be a horrible downside looming.

      Banshee was hanging with them since last issue. He was partnered with Hope.

    Just wish they showed some of his down time. Even on the Dazzler's X-Team before he was an enigma wrapped in a riddle but blindly okay by his fellow mutants.

Since his return, I don't think there would be much of his down time suitable for panel space. He seems to be little more than a zombie. It's sad, and it certainly doesn't need to be this way, but writers seem to want him to be like this. It sucks have a great character like Banshee like this while Daken and Sentry escaped the same situation without a scratch.

      Joseph was put in the X-Brig on Utopia after he attacked the team in Magneto: Not A Hero. When the island sank, Danger let all of the inmates go. Before this, he had sacrificed himself to fix the polar damage Our Lord Magneto caused during the Magneto War. I'm sure Astra is out there pulling his strings somewhere and already has a plan to restore him.

    THANK YOU! So, this is 'clearly' Joe be a subsequent clone - maybe thanks to Astra? Ugh, clones. And when you say let go, d'ya mean 'to the wind'?

Yeah. He was always Astra's clone of Magneto. Danger didn't want them all to drown in the sinking island (as much as they deserved it), so she released them all. Handing them over to SHIELD might have been nice, but I don't think there was time nor was she in a position to do so.
