“But her continued missteps, especially those surrounding the Sparkle Zap, are very damaging”There are no “continued missteps” that I see. Mysta made one emotionally driven mistake, she gave Sparkle a jolt for marrying Junior. Understandable, if regrettable. None of the criminals she zapped on the street were reported to suffer from amnesia, or any other lasting effects. The damage was clearly unintentional.Mysta came to the MCU to report to Tracy that Wheaton is in danger. She now knows that Sparkle is fine and has regained her memory. Her focus is properly on seeing to it that Tracy understands that the Wheatons need his help. This is admirable. She is concerned for others, even in the face of having lost everything dear to her in the aftermath of the attempt on her life. Her compassion outweighs her minor misstep.I continue to believe this is the “real” Mysta. She and Honeymoon are related. Whatever the exact nature of her recovery, and however it may have been aided by her Lunarian physiology and/or advancements in medical procedures, she is behaving like Mysta, not an imposter with plastic surgery. That she is being used by Sail’s superiors seems obvious now, even as their identity and agenda remain unknown to readers. I see her as a very sympathetic and tragic character. Such characters are often found in high caliber stories such as this.
