I know!!! And we also could have had Laura hanging out with the Academy kids in her book! Maybe being friends with the background students, like Anya! Anya and Laura being BFFs!
Yeahhhh. I mean, I still have faith that Laura/her relationship with the AA kids will be explored. I’m 99.99% sure that Laura will side with AA in AvX (especially if Gage decides to go with Liu’s characterization), so I’d imagine we’ll see more bonds with Laura in AA proper. Like, if I’m just guessing, I especially think that Laura and Jeanne will bond with their similar… emotional responses, I guess? And I would love to see Laura be friends with everyone, tbh. Gage might also work on the bond between Laura and Mettle as well since that’s been hinted at as well (I stand by saying it likely won’t even be a romantic one).
I mean, I could be wrong and she could side with her old NXM buddies and that would be fine by me— I love those kids, but idk I just think that going with the theme that Liu put in place of Laura directly making her own choices/friends that Laura will side with the Avengers (where she doesn’t have the sort of baggage she does with the X-Men, and in the case of her going to AA that was firmly her own decision).
Although, I do think that if Laura had her own book we could see these explored even more personally (like the Laura & Jubilee bond, the Gambit & Laura one, etc.) So… yeah.
I just. Miss that book so much. Everything about it and all the potential it had… *sigh*
