The 12th Planet, barreling though the Solar System, affects more than just the Earth, as might be imagined. How could it not affect the other planets, particularly those close to the Sun. Where the Earth experiences a pole shift each time, being composed of materials that magnetically align with the giant comet, other planets have wholly different reactions. Venus, for instance, is relatively unaffected, outside of a slight change in orbit toward the path of the comet. Mars also has a pole shift, but this is slight as this planet has cooled and has less fluidity in its core than the Earth. The planets in the outer orbits, depending on their weight, pull slightly inward during the comet's passage, but find their normal route later, the influence of other factors determining their normal orbit weighing in again. And how does the Sun itself react? Imperturbable, not even a flare, as its activity is influenced from within, not without.
