* It seems to me that Will holds the Idiot Ball a lot when it comes to using the Heart. She could've used it against Phobos or used it to get Matt out of the book. Aside from not having a plot or cool battle scenes, are there any other reasons why this would be? You'd also think she'd ask the Oracle what powers they each have and what the limits are. In a lot of issues they use powers that aren't explained or introduced and we don't know if all the girls can use them or only a specific Guardian( for example, the other girls use some type of transfiguration at some point or another but Irma is the only one who turns people into animals, and then only into toads. Is that because there's limits to her power or she just never experimented? Can the other girls turn people into animals or only the Water Guardian Can)?

* Is Elyon the Queen of the whole planet of Metamoor? I know all the action takes place in Meridian because it's the capital but no one mentions other cities or going to the other end of the planet or anything. No one mentions governors or mayors or anything of the sort either so does that mean she has to do everything herself?

** What is established clearly (and there's no {{Retcon}} IIRC) is that Elyon was taken away just around the time Phobos ascended to the Throne/their parents ''disappearance''. While I like the theory of the troper above me, I reckon it's simply to have this idea that he probably manipulated his parents and put them against one another, and when they were vulnerable enough be done with them. Also, poison is often a weapon in these types of killings. I wouldn't think much about it tho, the comic's always been inconsistent with Phobos' age. In the first issues it was implied he was as old as a thousand years (but that cannot be, considering Elyon aged like a normal girl), then roughly seemed to be in his late 20s, and then his ascension to the throne seemed to happen either in his late childhood or late teens...

*** It could also be that she's been receiving a lot of new information in relatively short time. She's suddenly the princess of another fantasy medieval world, she has an actual brother who's been missing her for years, her friends are apparently the oppressors of her world, and her parents aren't even her actual parents at all but her evil kidnappers. She doesn't know who to trust, if even her parents aren't who they claim to be. I reckon she was just confused and got closer to Cedric since he was the only one at the time who presented himself as an ally instead of an "enemy". Plus, since it was established that Will and Taranee had just recently arrived to Heatherfield, maybe she didn't trust them and felt they "corrupted" the team that had been established previously. Since all of the weird magic stuff happened just after Will came, it does feel a little coincidental.

* How on Earth did Takeda make a portal to another world using cold? And why would he blame the Guardians for what happened to Mariko, never mind knowing about them and their powers in the first place? And how could Mariko's and Shinobu's minds go to the Fast World while everyone else went with their Physical bodies?

** Actually, since Hallinor and Kadma where expelled from Kandrakar, if she's dead(which is the most likely option) she simple passed on to the in-universe afterlife

** So does that mean that they could've defeated Phobos but the Heart didn't give them enough power? We see it can act by itself when it absorbed the Seal of Phobos in issue 3 and shrunk the scuttler in issue 10, so it could've just shrunk Phobos or something. And I'm sure it could've easily taken out Nerissa and gotten Matt out of the book. Can it see in the future and didn't act because it knew everything would work out or does it only act by itself when the girls are in immediate danger?

** I wrote a fanfiction about this(of course since it is a fanfiction it isn't canon but I believe it's very plausible)and in it Phobos turned his parents into roses then shredded and burned them. Usurping the kingdom was easy because he was the only heir left, but as I'm typing this I'm wondering if any of his parents had relatives that could've made a claim and if they did. I really need the creators to write a special about Phobos's backstory, can someone please make a petition?

*** It really depends on what and how they told her. She is told she is the magical princess of another dimension, but they're trapped by the evil kandrakar, she gets some biased demonstrations, and then she sees her friends transforming and fighting "her" people. She got tricked by using a standard Magical Girl origin story.



** The Aurameres are the "essence" of the elements, and the Heart is merely a way for them to access it. Even Will is only using what the Heart allows(It is a sentient thing).

** That may be true, but it still doesn't explain why she thought her friends were evil just because a man she just met told her so. For example, I reread issue 5 and she says the Guardians are responsible for the people of Meridian's pain because they can't leave due to the Veil. But like I said before, only two people told her that story and she immediately believes it and attacks her friends, never mind the other two times she'd attacked them. You would think she'd ask a few more people or ask her friends for their side of the story. You'd also think she'd wonder why her brother isn't doing more to help the people if he's so powerful.

* Whatever happened to Hallinor in the comics? Things seem to suggest she's dead, but we never really get a confirmation about it, and we don't see her either in Kandrakar or as a ghost of sorts a la Cassidy. Is her spirit just wondering on in the multiverse, not finding a place to rest?
