Charmed Ones Edit
It says that the Charmed Ones must come together.I guess it means all four.It would be great!!!N.eno95
The websites that offer it to be bought digitally will make this issue available tomorrow, right? If so, what time? Help, please! FANaticyeah 03:40, January 25, 2012 (UTC)
Another delayed issue....???Why is that...??? 188.8.131.52 12:57, January 25, 2012 (UTC)
Zenescope are currently discussing putting it on Graphicly. They must do it issue by issue rather than having a standing arrangement. Fingers crossed though. It was a printing delay, so I can't see why they wouldn't. P3nathan
Scratch that. Doesn't look like we're getting it any early digitally. In response to a fan askingif it would be available digitally like last time, Zenescope said: "the digital copy is supposed to come out the same day and date as the print copy". I can't understand why it is a problem since they did it last time (in fact to be honest, I'm starting to wonder if the issue has actually been finished)... I've asked if we can at least have some previews in the mean time. P3nathan
Ugh, dissapointed. Thanks P3nathan FANaticyeah 20:33, January 25, 2012 (UTC)
I'm reading the previews and I think there's a mistake. Isn't P.J.'s name "Prudence JOHNNA" and not "Johanna?"= mall mistake. And I guess it was meant as a small joke, but Prue and Phoebe overcame their issues long before Prue died, in reference to Prue saying "but you always hated me." Either way, ugh my heart!! The sisters are reunited. That scene with Paige venting to frozen Henry was funny too (though it took me a while to remember he was frozen, I admit it ahaha). I just hope she and Prue have a formal, heartwrenching official meet. And on a short note, I'm glad those people who were trying to say that Melinda's first name was Prudence can finally shut up!! FANaticyeah 20:55, January 25, 2012 (UTC)
I loved the Paige and Henry scene too, rambling to a frozen Henry is totally something I can see Paige doing when she's frantic, love her (and I was the same remembering he was frozen lol). You're right, PJs name was said to be Prudence Johnna in Unnatural Resources (perhaps it's a spelling error). Yeah, I wasn't crazy about the "you always hated me" comment either... I find it hard to think Prue would ever really believe that... maybe she was being jokey. Cool previews though, the fight between Reenek and Leo looks like it will be cool :) P3nathan
Just found out that it was indeed a spelling error. So PJ is still Prudence Johnna P3nathan
Maybe it's just me but i like Johanna better.Kt111 00:32, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
I disagree, Johnna has a purpose, it's derived from Grams' maiden name so I prefer that over Johanna which seems kind of random. FANaticyeah 01:20, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
But gram's surname was Johnson so for a boy John or Jonathan and for a girl Johanna. Johanna is actually the female equivalent of John. The surname Johnson means son of John.Kt111 01:38, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
I have to agree with Kt111, maybe it's an accent thing, but i always end up saying Johanna in my head rather than Johnna anyways. AngelWings 13:47, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
Based on these previes, I feel this issue will be great! I really liked the Paige and Henry scene, wish they had done it on the show. It was sweet and funny at the same time. Johanna always made more sense to me, but if canon says it Johnna, so be it. Prue saying Phoebe hated her is a joke, don't take it seriously, it could also be a reference to Shannen en Alyssa. Charmdozo 16:25, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
Were can I find the previews at?Eric Jenkins 00:30, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
I dont take Prue/Phoebe feud seriously, its just a reference to there feud in real life, which has now ended, given they both follow each other on twitter, and Alyssa congratulated Shannen on her appearance on dancing with the stars a year or so ago. Buffyfan123 02:15, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
Wow, I really don't usually care about what goes on behind the scenes unless it directly affects the show but I'm glad to hear that their nonsense feud is over. It's been over ten years. Now if only Shannen would allow her image to be used (unless it's not her fault)...FANaticyeah 02:41, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
I'm glad its over, it was a decade ago, so I'm glad they settled it, still Shannen and Holly are still best friends and reguarly keep in contact, though they were friends long before Charmed first started. We dont know who's fault it is in her image being used, thats never been revealed. Although Brad Kern admitted he didn't bother asking Shannen to return for the last episode, I guess they didn't want to pay her for using a photo. But yeah, back to fours company, I wonder whats going to happen to Prue, is she going to return to the afterlife at the end of this issue, the next few issues shows a world without magic, so will Prue be invovled in these stories I wonder. 184.108.40.206 04:09, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
Honestly, I doubt the message got to Shannen. When Holly was told that they couldn't use her image in the comics she said something like "Really? That's odd. I can't see why she'd say no". I think a lot of people believe she still feels really bitter against Charmed, but the way she spoke in interviews and stuff, she seemed to get over it a long time a go. Anyway, yes, love these previews and can't wait for the issue :) P3nathan
Then how about we ask Paul to ask Shannen again or ask Shannen directly? She has a twitter right? Maybe getting her likeness is to expensive. I don't really see why bother in the first place, the artists hardly draw the likeness correctly anyway. CharmedAgainAgain 14:04, January 30, 2012 (UTC)
Shannen left twitter, she just didn't close the account. You could ask Paul I guess, but I'm not sure how much he'd know about it... he writes the series, but it's up to Zenescope to sort out all the rights and stuff, you'd probably be better asking them if it hasn't already been done P3nathan
Demons in Mirror Edit
The horns look quite similar, but I think I can make out more of a face that Yama had. Yeah the demon at the front does look quite gremlinish. I think they're probably just supposed to represent the general nasty lookin creatures that are surfacing on Earth during the big freeze P3nathan
- Yeah, I was just thinking that they probably used these two characters for inspiration for art. --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) 17:24, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
- I can see the gremlin yes, but the other looks nothing like Yama, he wore a helmet with three horns. He looks more like the Horned Demon in the comics. Charmdozo 18:43, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
Can anyone upload the issue to thepiratebay.org or any other website for those who can't access it. And I can't seem to buy it on graphicly because the issue is all scrambled for whatever reason. FANaticyeah 22:11, February 1, 2012 (UTC)
Please,tell me that will see Prue again!
I'd say it's very unlikely this issue will be her last appearance P3nathan
Molecular Immobilization Edit
So was it proven is this issue that it really was Molecular Immobilization that froze everything? It still seems weird, as that would mean Piper's power was effect a whole lot more than Phoebe and Paige's. They were able to control their powers despite them acting crazy. Charmdozo 11:32, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
Yes. When Prue drank the potion, is stripped of her powers and thus the amplification of Piper's freezing stops, returning the world to normal. That was Pipers power! She froze everything because is the most powerful and has this power from the beggining i think...Excalibur90 12:06, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah it was Piper's freeze. Phoebe's was still pretty crazy, she tried to levitate and badly injures herself, plus when she flies in Family Shatters, she did it unintentionally and went very far at super speed. Paige seems pretty in control, perhaps her whitelighter side kept her witch powers in check a bit more? I guess Piper's power has more range than her sisters' P3nathan
I dont want to start problems but it could also be that after breaking the "power of four" the world returned to normal. It's another option, it just seems weird the way Piper's power advanced to closely resemble TS. Although one limitation still existed (good witches dont freeze). Also do the powers (AMI and Flight) stay with the sisters or was it a one off.Kt111 18:14, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
I hope/expect it to be a one of a kind deal, same with the power advancements for the children. Charmdozo 19:17, February 3, 2012 (UTC)
I definitely think they were a one off... the advancements were uncontrollable because they weren't meant to happen P3nathan
Does anyone else think Prue's going to be reincarnated as Phoebe's kid? She was talking about her Charmed destiny keeping her from fully moving on, I wonder if that means she'll come back as Phoebe's daughter.
Makes sense to me. I'm guessing Phoebe's daughters are going to be the ones that inherit the Power of Three. This is all pure speculation of course.220.127.116.11 04:06, February 6, 2012 (UTC)Steve
I doubt that Prue will be reincarnated as the daughter Phoebe's currently pregnant with because she's already been made, she's already there just not born yet. Perhaps the third one? And as of now Prue is staying on Earth as Patience so we don't know if she's staying or leaving though anything could happen. FANaticyeah 04:25, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
But doesn't it seem kind of suspicious given the circumstances. Who the hell knows when the baby gets a soul; it may not have one yet. The timing just seems a bit strange is all.18.104.22.168 05:08, February 9, 2012 (UTC)Steve
Prue won't reincarnate as one of her daughters. That was already discussed in issue 12 and all sisters were clearly freaked out by the idea. Charmdozo 12:12, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Temporary Powers Edit
The sisters lost their haywire powers when Prue stripped her powers, so i think it's safe to assume the children lost them as well, meaning tamora's powers are once again bound and we should remove the additional powers. After all, they were affected by Prue's return as well. Charmdozo 23:04, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Finally Read ItEdit
There's always assumptions when it comes to le comics, and like I thought, there's no evidence of Prue immediately leaving after everything is said and done. I know its trivial but it was really bothering me that people were saying that Prue was saying her goodbyes and was getting ready to leave at the end of the issue when she really wasn't. Piper was just saying how she wishes she could stay longer than she already is while they were fixing the door. When Prue goes to close the door she is absolutely not leaving the house, she's still inside and showed no evidence of walking out at all. when Piper tells her to leave it open. Well there's my nitpicky rant now to the actual story.
It was great. It felt everything was much much more rushed when I was just reading other fans' reviews and summaries but by reading the issue at its pace, I loved it. Prue stripping her powers was right and justified, Paige felt out of place like we all thought she would but didn't do anything crazy and Paige-haters should respect her for being willing to rid herself of everything she's become (we all know that magic has been Paige's # 1 since day 1) so Prue, Piper, and Pheobe could reunite.
Rennek plans keep unfolding and its not as stupid and segway-ish as I thought it was going to be. It also keeps in track with how the Billie and Christy fight was the sisters' last destined battle because Rennek's not after them, he's ultimately after Leo and the magical secrets deep in his subconscious and is only using the sisters as ends to justify the means.
Cole and Phoebe finally reconciling was great, absolutely great! That's pretty much all I can say about that situation. Phoebe being pregnant ALREADY?! She and Coop must do it like bunnies!
Though I desired for more emotional scenes, especially with Prue and Piper but we all know that ultimately this can't happen in comic book form, but this issue was just pure gold. I'm itching to see how this arc unfolds!FANaticyeah 09:06, February 7, 2012 (UTC)
I dont like the importance given to Leo. The show was about the sisters not their husbands. I'm not saying they should remove them from the plot but i think they should take a supportive role. Also in the beggining he barely knew more about magic than the sisters and had to consult with the elders and now he's all knowledgable. Kt111 17:18, February 9, 2012 (UTC)
Leo has been in the show since the first season though, I think he desearves his own storylines now and again. Plus his story with Rennek ties in with the reunion P3nathan
Yeah, and I think it's going a bit too far saying he barely knew more about magic than the sisters, that's not really true, he just simply went to the Elders when he didn't know something specific or big. And the whole point of Rennek's plan is because Leo has gained knowledge from being a whitelighter, then an elder, then an avatar, and also the knowledge is burried deep within his subconscious so he didn't even know it was there. FANaticyeah 22:47, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
During several season 2 and 3 episodes Prue and to some degree her sisters knew more about magic and ordered Leo to consult with the Elders. Maybe that says more about the sisters bossiness than Leo's knowledge. Maybe it's because of the importance they gave Leo sometimes above Phoebe and Paige in the later seasons but I have always considered the show to be about the sisters. Also I hated the contrast between how the sisters treated Cole to how they treated Leo in regards of caring for their safety. Cole risked his life for the sisters to the point of losing his newfound humanity and they treated him like crap. Sorry if i'm going off topic but maybe that's why sometimes i dislike Leo related storylines and their level of importance to the main plotline.Kt111 23:12, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
I dont see anything wrong with a Leo story, but perhaps they could have some issues where its just has the sisters appear and no Leo, Henry etc. or a focus like in season 1 of charmed which focused primary on the sisters in episodes. Buffyfan123 12:33, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
Can someone please upload the part where Cole and Pheobe make up because I am dying to se that part and the comic release has been deleayed in my areas because of Snow.
I have no clue how to upload it but I can't transcribe it for you, if you want? Also, I don't know if this pertains to you but you can buy it digitally at comixology.com or graphicly.com FANaticyeah 23:46, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
Phoebe is frustrated becuase she can't find anything in the Book so she's laying her head on her arm ontop of it and then Cole comes in
Cole: Must be difficult to read like that.
Phoebe: Oh great, just what I need. I thought I asked you to leave.
Cole: Told me was more like it.
Phoebe: You were never good at listening to me.
Cole: I always tried.
Phoebe (slams the book shut): Well hear this.
Cole: No, Phoebe. Wait. I've had a lot of time to think about what I'd say if I ever saw you again. If you could see me. I have to get this out. I apologized a lot when we were together. Most of the time, I even meant it. But I kept slipping back into my old ways. I used my demon half as an excuse too many times. Evil influence was always my crutch. My go-to reason for not being a better man. I've had a lot of time to think about who I am, who I want to be. Clearly, I'm past becoming a better person in life, but I'll never get pat wishing you'd think beter of me. I want you to know how sorry I am for everything I did. And more importantly for all that I didn't do. I genuinely loved you. I always will. But I understand that I was never right for you.
Phoebe:Our relationship wasn't perfect but I'd be lying if I said I didn't make my share of mistakes. (They grasp hands) I accept your apology.
LATER, Phoebe and Cole are talking in the foyer.
Phoebe: Really? You and Prue?
Cole: I need to make up for my past, I can't think of a better way than by guiding new witches, and it will keep me far away from you.
Phoebe: If both of us are truly going to move on, we're going to need to learn to coexist. Besides, I plan to visit Prue as much as I can.
Cole (puts his hand on her belly): I doubt we've seen the last of each other. I'm fairly certain Prue will want to see you and your cupid about eight or so months from now.
Prue shouldn't of stripped her powers. Edit
Im sorry but I felt like Prue shouldn't of stripped her powers. Paige should just be a whitelighter and leave the witches duties to the orginial power of three. The only reason why Paige is part of the power of the three is because of prue's death and now that she's back i think that Paige should be a whitelighter and use her whitelighter powers to help her older sisters like orbing and stuff. But thats my opinion. What do you guys think?
I know you're a big Prue fan, but I personally think giving up her powers was the type of incredibly selfless and heroic act that Prue would do, I thought it was very much in character for her. Paige may not have been part of the original power of three, but it could be argued that Paige did a heck of a lot more than Prue ever got to: vanquishing Zankou, the Source mulitiple times and many other threats to the world... I think it would be unfair to bring Paige into the fold in order to save the power of three (which Prue helped happen) and then to strip her of her witchcraft now that Prue has returned. Anyway, I suspect Prue will find a way to get her magic back, I guess we'll see P3nathan
I would have liked that they all kept their powers but i think Prue did the right thing. It was very according to her personality and role as the big sister. Besides if Paige had to give up her powers it's like saying she really was a replacement. What i dont know is if she kept the basic powers of a witch. Kt111 23:21, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Atlease she can still cast spells and stuff she just got strip of her active powers so that they telekinesis wont effect each other.
Prue was really good at casting spells. Not as good as Phoebe but better than Paige and Piper. She had the same skills as Phoebe and Paige when it came to potions too.Kt111 01:38, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
I agree with everything you guys have said. FANaticyeah 01:53, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
Yah but its kinda like saying to Prue that we found a replacement and we don't need you anymore. You know what I'm sayin. I just feel like bringing Paige into the show was a bad idea because killing Prue wasn't really a good idea since Prue never returned and the people who are fans with Prue didn't have that closure. And now she returning makes us Prue fans want her to be including back into the Charmed Ones. But if she is including that means Paige needs to leave which what Kt 111 said it won't be right taking out Paige because then she will be know as the replacement, then you guys know how I feel if they take out Prue, and then if we keep both Prue and Paige then it won't be the power of three it will be the power of four which go against what the show is about (but then again, its a comic so it doesn't have to be based entirely on the show.) I just think the show should of just recast Prue.
(22.214.171.124 20:08, June 19, 2012 (UTC))
You really would've wanted someone other than Shannen starring in the show as the same character? I honestly don't think that would've been very well received. I know that's near enough what has happened in season 9, but I think giving it so much time after her death has made the transition a lot easier to accept. I loved Prue, then I grew to love Paige. Unfortunately, I can't see Prue sticking around forever. We've already seen what a "power of 4" will do and whether she's highjacked a body or not, she's still technically dead. My theory is that Prue will fulfill her destiny by fighting in the battle at the end of season 9, allowing her to move on properly... but we'll just have to wait and see :) P3nathan
Could Paige have stripped her witch magic and retained her whitelighter magic? Or was it just an all around magic stripping potion? They never really said much about that on the show, I think. Can they brew a potion that only strips/binds a certain source of magic and leaves another, or does a magic stripping/binding potion cover all sources of magic. Would the binding potion Piper made for Tyler work for a witch? Well, anyway, back to Paige; I know she retained her whitelighter powers in the season 6 episode, "The Power of Three Blondes," and it would make sense that she could retain her whitelighter powers given it's a different source of magic than her witch powers.
It would make sense that a being's magic can only be bound/stripped if it's specifically accounted for; like maybe Grams/Patty bound only Paige's witch powers as a baby, since they weren't aware she inherited w-lighter powers from Sam. It would explain why she was only able to orb and didn't possess an active power like Prue, Piper, and Phoebe, only activating it until there was a vacancy in the Po3 and she became charmed. A little off-topic, but that's what I always thought. I don't think she would've received the missing sister's power; she wouldn't conform to fit in the Po3, but was able to do so naturally, given the fact she and Prue shared the same power. Just a coincidence, I guess; I mean, she could've easily inherited Phoebe's power, or Piper's, but then she wouldn't be able to reconstitute the Po3, since it called for three sister witches with three specific individual powers.
Of course, this is all speculation. Just what I think on the matter. If there is a potion that just strips/binds one of an individual's sources of magic and leaves another, then I couldn't see why Paige couldn't still be a whitelighter, help witches and future whitelighters, and leave the Charmed-stuff to Prue, Piper, and Phoebe. It does seem a bit unnatural to me, though. Prue's dead and inhabiting another witch's body; where's the Angel of Death? Does he not care?126.96.36.199 03:56, January 10, 2013 (UTC)Logan
You are right, it doesn't seem a bit unnatural to me either, and it was said by The Angels of Destiny that she was allowed to move on. MysticalNut 15:33 January 10 2013
I think Prue's final fate is pretty horrible, guarding the nexus of the all never being able to leave and only Cole being able to visit her. She would have been better off in the afterlife with Andy and her family. Charmdozo (talk) 14:44, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
This is just all speculation. But Paul maybe just doesn't like the character Prue, as it's kind of common that a specific character either gets a horrified destiny or is dead or vanquished for example Billie's older sister is still much dead and vanquished in fictional series or comics, it depends on who is writing the storyline. MysticalNut 16:21 January 10 2013
Empyreal sword Edit
Is the Empyreal Sword a power. Its a weapon, ain't it? How can it be listed as powers used? I think calling or summoning should be the one to be used.188.8.131.52 09:08, December 13, 2012 (UTC)
