Subj: What about Dani Moonstar? (Yes, this is on-topic. Mostly)

So I'm pretty sure most of you are familiar with the whole thing in New Mutants were Dani Moonstar got Valkyrie powers. Which went away for a while, I think.

Over at CBR's X-Men board, a lot of people apparently want Dani to get her Valkyrie powers back, especially since Asgard is back. This would make sense, seeing as she was depowered during M-Day, but she has the 'easy out' of having a second set of powers.

However, I don't think the fact that Asgard's "returned" would be any reason for her to get her powers again. After all, Asgard was destroyed and Odin kicked the bucket and Bill didn't lose his powers, neither did Tarene (though with her, I'm not sure what the hell is going on) for that matter.

Plus I wonder just how many of these X-Men/Dani fans have read the main Thor book. I wouldn't say that now is a "great" time for her to get her Valkyrie powers back by any means. I think it'd be smart to wait until this whole Thor in exile-Balder being a dunce-Loki just being Loki (in grossly simplified terms) morass is solved.

Though I could potentially see a story where Loki hoodwinks her and gives her some Valkyrie powers back... with a typical Loki twist.
