Well, it's finally been confirmed in-text (as opposed to just an interview with Jeff Parker) that the new Exiles' Blink is the same one from the old Exiles.
Blink teleported out to find food -- because this Earth's North America has been devastated by neutron bombs -- and returned to discover that her teammates had been captured by the machines now ruling North America.
I won't post the last page -- featuring what's happened to Lorna -- because it's a real doozy and I don't want to spoil the shock. What I will say is...
Since she's on the cover for #6, she's not dead, but she may be wishing she was.
Now, I didn't follow Claremont's bastardization of Exiles...was there anything in there that would account for why Blink's been hiding her past from her new team-mates?
P.S. Anyone recognize all the robots in the crowd scene on the first page? I see Awesome Andy, but I have no clue who the others are.
