    I'm calling it now - Armor doesn't like being couped up on Krakoa.
    She's looking for an excuse to get out of there and do some other things, and if that excuse is to "invite" others over, then so be...

    I don't like Armor's hair - The hime cut is pretty much her only distinguishing physical marker, and doing away with it just makes her harder to recognize.
    I definitely don't like Armor's wardrobe -...

    From the look at the last (and future) couple of storylines - Glob and Armor.

    I think you're operating on a potentially flawed premise - you're assuming that said "Sexy" variants would attract a large number of gay people who would otherwise not be into said characters - I'm...

    Smaller - not large enough to offset the likely loss from the straight male demographic.
    It's a numbers decision pure and simple.
  7. I suspect its because portraying male character...

    I suspect its because portraying male character in "sexy" poses is likely to turn away the straight male audience - while not being as likely to actually DRAW new female readers to a franchise and...

    Don't get me wrong - I fully understand what you're saying.
    But the most important thing in any business is to know exactly who your target audience is - and how to market to them.

    Except it makes no sense for Marvel to do so.
    At the end of the day, Marvel is interested in making money first and foremost - same deal every other comic company, or any other company for that...

    Batgirl wasn't a character sold specifically on the premise of her being a sexpot - Black Cat very much is.

    The cold hard fact is it works - I became a big fan of Birds Of Prey after Simone took...

    For that to work, you first have to lure them into reading your comics.
    The Art plays a huge role in that one.

    At the end of the day, a good character design plays a HUGE part in how well a...

    Making a female character overweight is likely to turn away potential male readers - making a female character physically attractive is far less likely to turn away potential female readers.
    It's...

    I suspect the majority of comicbook READERS are also straight men - knowing who your target audience and how to market to them is hardly a bad idea.

    Wing didn't have wings either tho.

    Also, why would anyone assume they even CAN bring back Wing given that he was human when he died.

    Actually, it makes perfect sense.
    1)Mutants are a valuable source of power (basically free super humans if you can force them to work for you).
    2)letting them join Krakoa just makes it more...

    How do you know she didn't kill herself in the knowledge she'd just be brought back ?
    After all, she knew she was going to die - painfully - and probably wanted to avoid THAT.
  17. Actually, the reference that strikes most closely...

    Actually, the reference that strikes most closely in my mind is actually Zionism more then anything else.
    You've got a bunch of people who have been systematically abused by just about every nation...

    why is Armor's hair short ?
    It was only short in Nextgen, and it didn't carry over to the main universe (We've already seen her with long hair).

    Also, why are the creepy twins who both she and...

    You know, it occurs to me that all 4 characters were members of the Ellis incarnation of the Astonishing team.
    I wonder if this has anything to do with it.

    Also, Armor and Storm teaming up is...

    That's kinda true - all Mutant superheroes have a backstory explaining the source of their power.

    "Mutant".

    That's basically it.

    Because they don't actually need to bother explaining the nature of how her powers work - Glowing energy armor works really well as a superpower without also giving it a backstory.

    Ok... That's a positive development - for the character at least.

    I'm only reading Nextgen at this stage - I like anything that revolves around the younger X-men.
