What’s on Ronnie’s Calendars 2011, chapter 2

We’ve got two newcomers to the calendar scene this week, which is always exciting. Even more exciting is who one of them is.

Hawkeye

Omigod. I am so shocked and happy to find Hawkeye finally getting his own month that I’m not even going to complain that it’s the shortest, most miserable month of the year.

If you’ve been paying any attention at all while you’ve been visiting you know who Hawkeye is, so I shouldn’t need to say anymore. If not, refer to Question 14 on the F.A.Q. on the ABOUT page.

The image in question comes from the “Hawkeye: Blindshot” mini-series that I believe launches this month. Coincidence? Go out and buy it so I don’t have to write another post about it.

Polaris

The “Women of Marvel” calendar gives us another character that I never would have thought would rate her own month. Lorna Dane was one of the first new recruits to join the X-Men, first appearing in “X-Men” 49 way back in the swingin’ sixties.

Lorna’s mutant power was control over magnetism, which early on led speculation that she was the daughter of Magneto. I’m pretty sure she’s not, but the way things change at Marvel it could be that she is. To the best of my knowledge, it’s never been explained why she has green hair.

Lorna’s been kicked around a lot, never making it to the A-List of X-Women. She’s been in a long relationship with Cyclops’ brother Alex Summers (Havok) but I couldn’t tell you if they’re currently a couple. She was a key player in “X-Factor” for a few years. For the past few years she’s been off it outer space with Havok and some other X-Men in comics that I don’t read.

The X-Men don’t belong in outer space.

  1. You would think Lorna would be the March hottie. She is green, which fits perfectly with St. Patty’s Day!

  2. I love Lorna but I think the artist that did the cover got the place in the calender not her. It’s a stunning image.

    p.s They just said her hair was part of her mutation like Storm’s white hair and she damn well better be Magneto’s daughter.
