    Seriously? He is going to be running things for a while. This kind of attitude makes this place depressing. The next thing is NEVER going to be what som of you want.

    I can understand that any writer loves Emma. She is a type of character like Doom, Thor, Superior Spider-man, Stark or Namor in which their dialogue is satisfying and easy to write thanks to their awesome egos.

    Add to the cocktail that she is practically the only X-Woman with that attitude and you have a winning recipe. Any dialogue can be entertaining with her.

    you mean writers are lazy?

    Good Doctor Doom dialog is nothing but very complex. He talks like a old king

    Maybe in some of these waves there will be some Polaris. But with Hickman navigating the x-ship, he will let the meaty stuff for his faves

    I imagine your reaction if they had a Scott/Emma book like this.

    And that's fun to write. You can be as exaggerated and bombastic as you want. Magneto, Sinister, Emma, Monet and Sunspot have all incredible egos. Of course Hickman knows that not all the characters in a story can be like that, so for example in New Avengers also had much importance more discreet characters like Black Panther or Reed Richards.

    I'm most interested because this feels like the first pitch for introducing the X-Men into the MCU.

    Even though I thought Hickman's Avengers stuff was boring and more tell than show, the line needs a visionary with clout and commitment and he clearly has both. It's exciting.

    Seems more like a lack of skills of writers than anything about these characters

    Where's that Doflamingo spread where he says the victors will define what justice is? Serves us well right now.

    Yes, obviously every writer who likes Emma must also be bad at their job. I'm sure they would be delighted to hear that.

    Your attitude of "I don't like X character therefore any writer who does and enjoy writing her has no skill" is a mix between funny and sad.

    So far I really been liking what I have been reading for about House of X and Powers of X. They both sound fun. Also it seems like Emma is going to get some love here, so I'm excited for that. I've haven't read anything made by Hickman yet but from the interviews it sounds like his era of X-books should be fun. Can't wait to start reading the series.
    My pull list: Sonic the Hedgehog, TMNT, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
