    I believe that Emma has always operated on an ends justify the means philosophy. She's made numerous statements to that effect to cover all manner of behavior from insulting teammates to suggesting...

    I said they were opposed. I never said one was a saint and the other the devil. That's interpretation I'd rather avoid for the purposes of this topic.

    Regardless it sounds like we agree on the...

    I don't think focusing on the affair or the DPS or whatever else is important to the question. These two have very fundamentally opposed worldviews and their methods, over the long term, are...

    Let's not be dis-indigenous. Despite how many Jean fans may feel, the most omnipresent and outspoken fan for the longest period of time, when it comes to Scott has been Jean. That's not...

    Inferno gets my node for tying up the events of the DPS and the fallout of X-Factor # 1 as cleanly as could possibly be done. Simonson and Claremont deserve a lot of credit for making a story that...

    That's because how interesting a character is, is usually diametrically opposed to how easily they overcome their opposition.

    My problem with this is how JDW framed the question. He's trying to have us answer something universally that doesn't work when you look at each individual case. Some black marks need fixing, some...

    I don't think so. The crux of the matter for me is that Scott post NXM isn't all that different from Scott pre-NXM. Let's take NXM itself out because I agree that there are inconsistencies there that...

    That's a fair point. We don't know. We're speculating based on the history of the personalities involved but we won't know until the books drop. I think there's a certain logic in suggesting that...

    I haven't seen much evidence of that. What differences exist could be down to a change in writers. The last writer before Rosenberg that did significant work with adult Scott was Bendis after all.

    Read Uncanny and tell me that's true. The fans want to move on. It's the creators that are stuck.



    Scott going back to a more classic depiction is fine with me. I liked him before NXM and I've...

    Remember that when the MM came out, we were only five years away from the X-Books hitting their high water mark for sales. I highly doubt he'd have presided over the 80's story lines or art. The art...

    I can't help but think there's more to it than that. No offense to JDW but he doesn't strike me as an A-Type corporate climber. I think he legitimately believes what he's saying, which makes it all...

    It may be worth pointing out that if a message is broadly misunderstood, thatís likely due to how the message is conveyed rather then how itís decoded.

    Of course you have to balance factors we...

    Or you could see this as a sign of an engaged and invested fan base, at least here at CBR. Dissecting creator statements is hardly unique to comic book fandom.
