    Default Madelyne Pryor: Red Queen Appreciation 2019

    Madelyne is an interesting character. Originally brought into the books as more or less a way for Scott Summers to finally "move on with his life" following the demise of his beloved Jean Grey, her precise identity and relationship with Jean was teased. Was she a clone? A reincarnation? Just an uncanny resemblance?

    Maddy and Scott even went as far as producing a child together, all part of Scott basically giving up his role with the X-Men and wanting to just be happy finally.

    But... heroes can never be gone for long it seems, and when the decision was made to bring back the original Jean, Scott also was pushed into active service again. This left Maddy (and their son Nate) in the lurch.

    She was bitter and the two broke up but she tried to work with the Australian-era X-Men team regardless.

    Ultimately the events of the Inferno crossover turned her into her "true form" as the Goblin Queen.

    She also had some later roles appearing alongside her son Nathan/"X-Man". In a somewhat "more than motherly" capacity as well.

    More recently she was brought back to be part of a new "Sisterhood of mutants" alongside Lady Mastermind, Selene, Spiral, and others.

    Since then her whereabouts and activities remain an enigma.

    Loathed by some as a "Jean knock off", loved by others as basically "Jean's id", she remains.... the Red Queen.

    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    She is the most tragic character on the X-men

    I really wish someone would take the main Maddie out of limbo, and that she and Jean could interact. I imagine them as having a sort of Thor/Loki dynamic.

    I would like to see Madelyne make a name for herself outside the X-Men. That way she doesn't have to clash with Jean and she can be her own person or not be confused as Grey all the time.
    I come when there's something to take but I never give anything back.
    I know what you want. But it is not here. It's gone and it will never ever come again...

    I tend to agree. She's my favorite X-villian, for sure.

    Now would be the time to make some history about her knowing that Cable is dead. Well, the one she knows is. After all, she is the mother, not Jean.

    I first saw Madelyne Pryor in Excalibur during the Inferno era. I was so confused as I have no idea what's happening.

    I thought it was Jean because Rachel called her mother, but then maybe it's not Jean? I was still trying to adjust to the fact that Jean died and there's a daughter Phoenix from the future, because I jumped on this without finishing the Phoenix saga. Rachel's Jean's daughter right, because she has Phoenix power?

    Then the event was over and I saw her with a baby, that's her right because Jean's dead? Rachel flew up to where they live because she wanted to see her baby brother, the future Cable, was it?

    Gosh, dang X-Men continuity. Not only you have retcon in the past, but you also have a clone in the present and multiple Nate Summers in the future too.

    A little something to hang in the foyer. I call it "Seduction of the Sun". If anyone can charm the sun from the heavens, it's Maddy. (And you thought it was night out.)

    I was always astounded how she never fell out of the costume. But then thinking back to the late 80’s, early 90’s most x-women seemed to have magical levitating boobs that defied gravity. Lol

    She was using her goblin queen magic to keep everything in place...I never viewed Maddy as the evil witch that Marvel seems to want to portray her as to whitewash Scott's actions...I wonder how things would go if Maddy came back with another kid that was at least a teen since he/she would be Cable's sibling and all...and Maddy and the kid wouldn't be evil...

    Kind of always seen Maddy as a sexier Jean, more open to it all...

    She had a great rack. Either that or it was girl magic.
