    But Colossus continues to be a love interest for Kitty with four? different writers now and is Kitty's most frequent love interest, and there's a lot of Katyana shippers around here who take up issue with Kiotr on some personal level.

    couples who haven't been a thing for more than ten years should probably not make the list.
    It is very, very odd. One good thing about the shippers for Kitty/Illyana was that they claimed any writer who wrote Peter and Kitty as a couple were inserting themselves as Colossus trying to "get with" their childhood comic book crush, Kitty. So when the tables were turned and it was pointed out to them that by their logic Warren Ellis shipped himself as Pete Wisdom, Jason Aaron "shipped" himself as Iceman, Brian Michael Bendis shipped himself as Spiderman in the Ultimate universe, then as Chris Pratt's version of Starlord, they piped down a little bit.

    When John Byrne created Kitty Pryde, and than ran the character by Claremont, I do not think either shipped themselves as Colossus, the youngest X-Man at the time. Nor do I think their original plan was to have her hook up with Peter's younger sister. A lot of the Kitty/Illyana shippers claim that was the plan all along. Le sigh.

    Finally, I do not think Joss Whedon shipped himself in Astonishing as Colossus. If anything, he may have shipped himself as Scott with Emma, but I highly doubt it. Fan fiction can be strange. Just read any Bendis X-Men comic book.

    Can anyone upload a pic of when husk and angel broke up? Did not even know when they ended their relationship. the relationship was creepy yes but I still sort of found it interesting because Chuck Austen wrote Paige as such a strong domineering person in contrast to Angel who he wrote as quite broody and reserved.

    That's probably the main reason I'm not totally creeped out by a relationship between an original adult X-Man and one of the New Mutants younger siblings, is that Paige was so adult in her demeanor, pretty much running the show in Generation X at times (and standing up to Emma Frost on occasion!). Plus Angel was coming off years of not really being the 'high-flying Angel' party boy, but the broody post-Horseman-of-Death wangster, who, frankly, needed a strong woman (no matter her age) to pull his head out of his butt.

    Plus it's comics. Wanda made babies out of a demon with her robot husband. (No wonder she cracked...) What's a decade's age difference (or two) between lovers? Sersi dated Dane, after all, and she's like, *all* the years old...

    Well in 616 Logan and Jean weren't, but in AoA, Ultimate, that Spider-Man book...they are/were...so guess it all depends on which reality/universe you mean...

    Storm and Wolverine, I never understood why that is so common in fan fiction. Storm has more class than that and I think it was briefly done because of the fanfiction than anything that the two had in common.

    I'm on the same page. I don't know what Claremont was on that made him think that Jean's death was never going to be undone. How hard is it really to anticipate that you are about to create a colossal mess with that setup. Screwed three characters over, to varying degrees, for a very long time. You could say that about Scemma too I suppose, but what happened was at least intended by the writer. Turned Claremont into a sour puss along the way and basically a Scott hater forever.

    Husk and Angel. Because of the Austen. And the cringe. Did I mention the Austen?

    I'm on defensive because of a some character masculinity?

    Bendis and Ellis are the only people that I think did self-inserts. Bendis had Kitty hook up with Kenny Kong in Ultimate Spider-Man, who was obviously meant to be a stand-in for Bendis.

    In the case of Whedon, I don't think there was a self-insert. I think he just happens to like writing witty, strong female leads. Putting her back with Piotr was probably more of a fan service thing? IDK to be honest.

    Well, many writers self inserted as Scott and as male characters. Normal stuff that happens
