    I wouldn’t use his creation of Dust as a plus. He piled stereotype on stereotype.

    Maybe, but the fact that she exists at all is important.

    Dust’s creation was steeped in post-9/11 orientalism.

    Plus, he wanted Storm to be a regular in the team originally.

    Claremont already wrote female characters well and I hardly find anything so breaking about Morrison. women destroying the other over jealous is 90s mexican soap opera. Interracial relationship?


    Yes. Which Hank also got called out for. It wasn't played for laughs.
    it was a bad joke. ANd I remember on a interview Morrison considering Hank gay because he was sophisticateed

    Bishop was on one issue. I don't remember Storm in this run. Angel Salvadore was sexist and a stereotype, Dust power is sand like what a joke.. I really don't remember neal shaara, feral, sabra or monet on the run.
    Also none of these are on the main players

    This is why I'm glad we got the individual threads cause it always comes back to this " I hate Morrison" BS.

    Angel and Xorn are 100% main players. Go reread the book.

    Neal, Sabra and Storm were all in the same issue. Feral and Dust as well.

    How the hell was Angel Salvadore sexist? She's one of the most real characters from any run. She was a child who was (probably sexually) abused, and when she had her own kids her life became about them, but she never lost her personality - even in her appearances in New Warriors. Dust's powers are only racist if you make them racist.

    Except he wrote Cyclops saying it was a stupid idea, and also Emma saying he never had a gay thought in his life.

    I have very biased opinions and i like to voice for the things i like but I'm not trying to deppreciate other things. The line is thin and blur sometimes.

    I'm loving the battle between Marauders and Excalibur for the #2 spot on the poll. I honestly would have figured that X-Force would've had that locked up.

    Having unprotected sex because latinas have big sexual hunger.
    Xorn was a damn mess

    Neal, Sabra and Storm were all in the same issue. Feral and Dust as well.
    One issue? help me help you

    Latina being sexually abused. Then all morrison do is sexualized her with Beak

    that is not a good argument

    Some people read it as Scott and Emma putting Hank inside the closet. Not a win in anyway
