    2) What would be happening exactly? Are Jean and Scott together but on an open relationship where they can do Logan/Emma on the side? Or is it like a full-on throuple or... Idk what with 4 is called? Or are neither of them on an official relationship just doing whatever?

    3) Do you think Marvel would ever allow, even imply same-sex stuff to it? Aka Scott/Logan or even Jean/Emma?
    1) I think it will never be called on panel, but it will be all but spelled like he's doing;

    2) Scott & Jean and Scott & Emma will actually be relationships, and I imagine Logan will be with Jean, but having side pieces in his solo.

    3) No. Specially anything that might involve Logan being gay or bi.

For all we know, this could just be Hickman trolling readers and leaving it ambiguous for others to fill in the blanks. He has done that before in previous works and he's done it well...Considering how toxic love triangles tend to be, I think this is a positive. But in terms of a polyamorous relationship, this is uncharted territory.
    Sorry if I stole your thunder.

    I’m a fan! Your early more irreverent reviews are a lot of fun to read.
    Your post brings up a good point about subtext in the X-books.

    So I’d like to add a question to Wiccan’s post:

    4) Should these polyamorous relationships be relegated to subtext and innuendo?

    I think everything needs to happen and be shown.

    I'd also like to see them combine their powers and show their intimacy has allowed their powers to grow stronger as a team

    I hope the Lazarus 5 have a similar relationship

    I don't agree with every point the OP makes and I feel dirty linking to reddit but this brings up some interesting elements:

    Some relevant corrections and counterpoints in the replies too.

    It's not that I'm against polyamory. I don't like it myself, but if it works for a group of consenting adults, then who am I to judge?

    So it took me a while to figure out why I found this arrangement creepy, but I realized that the issue I was having was that it treated Jean as a prize, not as a real person. Everything is perfect now, so we don't have to fight, we'll just share Jean!

    Never mind that the Summers family now has a freaking compound on the moon. It's like Scott has built his own little independent kingdom in the middle of paradise.

    It occurs to me that folks who are all about the polyamorous relationships that Hickman is laying down at need a place to show their appreciation.
    So here is a place to discuss our favorite throuple/foursome!

    And remember, the hate can't reach us here.

    For real?

    Why?
    I wasn’t trolling. That was just me being lazy.

    But if trolling did occur, then it’s a happy little coincidence.

    Except theres nothing in the book supporting this view. If anything Jean is the one who gets to have her a cake and eat it too.
