  1. Continued from previous post: Why Emma's...

    Continued from previous post:

    Why Emma's appeal to Scott worked, and where Morrison jumped the shark
    I think Emma's appeal when it came to the state Scott was in after 116 is pretty clear. Emma's...
  2. I thought a good bit about how to answer this...

    I thought a good bit about how to answer this question. I went back and read some key chunks of the run. I'd actually forgotten how short it is at just over forty issues. I've come to the conclusion...
  3. Thanks for the clarification. The only element...

    Thanks for the clarification. The only element that remains unclear is the on-panel reason for why they never re-established the rapport following the event of tSfC. I think in retrospect we can...
  4. Exactly the point I was trying to make yesterday....

    Exactly the point I was trying to make yesterday. Tyke and Jeen were still very much in the getting to know you phase when they were pulled into the future, and the years that followed. That just...
  5. I'm a little fuzzy so help me out here but I...

    I'm a little fuzzy so help me out here but I thought it was the rapport that allowed Jean to find Scott in TSFC. Maybe it was just her TP, or Nathan. It's been a while since I read that but IIRC they...
  6. I'm going to assume you took my very tongue in...

    I'm going to assume you took my very tongue in check response as serious. I know Scott was the cold shoulder there.

    Obviously Jott is the poster child for a deep relationship that's primarily...
  7. Well maybe if Morrison had Jean thinking more...

    Well maybe if Morrison had Jean thinking more about f*cking her husband this all could have been avoided...

    Kidding. IIRC Jean was hard up and Scott was awol. Or was that the other way around?
    ...
  8. Right, and the adults just got those feels back...

    Right, and the adults just got those feels back didn't they? That's like remembering how it felt to fall in love with your long term lover all over again. Maybe that's why Scott's such a mess in...

    So cool to see people taking a moment to acknowledge each other. We really do have a great community here. I know a lot of us take the time in the individual threads or PM's to say "thanks" or "I...
  10. I both agree and disagree. I think that Scott...

    I both agree and disagree.

    I think that Scott and Jean never get together in the Silver Age if it was left up to Scott alone. We know from experience that he responds to direct confrontations...

    I'm less concerned about Pak. Endsong was a long time ago and I don't think what he wrote was the worst possible version of that story for Jott. I know other's disagree but I'm sticking to my guns on...

    The X-Books Member Appreciation Thread

    Having been around here off an on a little while now, I've come to appreciate what makes this place so truly special to the X-Men fandom community. That's all of you. I thought I would take the time...
  13. I certainly hope not :p

    I certainly hope not :p
  14. Unless it's Hickman saying it, I don't really...

    Unless it's Hickman saying it, I don't really think it matters too much. Supposedly the guy has a free wheel, at least for now. In other news, Marvel did just marry Rogue and Gambit.
  15. That's a touch pessimistic, and also a completely...

    That's a touch pessimistic, and also a completely untested hypothesis. It's a matter of the plot, cast and execution. It's our own preconceptions that limit our imagination.

    Hell, I bet someone...
  16. We've got to be like trauma surgeons. So long as...

    We've got to be like trauma surgeons. So long as there are signs of life, don't give up. Then if the patient expires, we resuscitate.
  17. If it hadn't have been done so recently I'd...

    If it hadn't have been done so recently I'd prefer giving Charles his own origin movie and start the franchise there. The X-Men wouldn't exist without Charles and I think the MCU is a chance to avoid...
  18. Right so if you only have a few seconds to say...

    Right so if you only have a few seconds to say what you want to say to someone who may be gone forever, do you lie, or do you say what's in your heart? I think the interaction was entirely genuine.
    ...
  19. This has been true before and it didn't stop...

    This has been true before and it didn't stop them. That's why Jean had to push so hard, both in the early UXM and early X-Factor. In X-Factor in particular I'd argue that he was just a self loathing...
  20. Maybe Jean will dye her hair blonde and start...

    Maybe Jean will dye her hair blonde and start stripping? Maybe Scott will become cool? Ok, I'm going over the top. Really read the number of personal development issues either of these characters...
  21. Am I the only one wondering if this is a good...

    Am I the only one wondering if this is a good idea? It's going to be very difficult for these two to replicate their 80's alchemy. I'm also not 9 anymore. Some things are better left to the past. I...
  22. Actually in those circumstances I would expect...

    Actually in those circumstances I would expect the most honest reaction. Neither party had any reason to pretend or deceive because there's no expectation of follow up. Besides, there's no evidence...
  23. What happened in PR #5 is consistent with Scott...

    What happened in PR #5 is consistent with Scott and Jean's overarching history. What you're describing (friends w\ benefits), really isn't. That's the most compelling argument I can make, or rather...
  24. No, I'm very much trying to see Marvel's angle...

    No, I'm very much trying to see Marvel's angle here. The problem is that there's no objective way of quantifying how much these kinds of tactics actually effect sales. I'm not denying that it would...
  25. I'm not really convinced that the "will they or...

    I'm not really convinced that the "will they or won't they" story lines drive sales or readership generally, especially as it relates to this couple. They've had almost none of it in their their...
