    You just know that Hordeculture are going to comment on Jean smelling like a corpse and Storm caring for nature being fake and a big show

    Can't wait for that confrontationz especially because Storm is designed to be a foil to these 4

    Shaw thought it was pretty funny. Scott is trying his best to keep a straight face. Emma is offended and embarrassed. She didn’t laugh off their basic shade, her reaction lended credence to accusation. All three reactions did really. It’s all right if Emma has her not so fresh days. She gets fine ass men and they clearly don’t care that her vagina has an odor.

    There was a thread funnily enough for "What would you do different in this direction," but then people who liked the new status quo/were happy enough to see where it goes jumped on it and started trolling people for not liking the direction/those who had criticisms anyway. So...
    Hmm I didn't know that's what happened? I admit to being tempted to click into that thread but didn't because as someone who enjoys the new storylines immensely I figured the responses would just annoy me.

    And vice versa I've seen posters who've clearly have fundamental issues with DoX come into threads simply to tell people about how "displeased" they were.

    At the end if the day though this is a comic book forum where people can freely air their praise or grievance.

    Uff if you are reaching. It was a joke made to offend her and shame her because they are 4 crazy old ladies. Also, the joke was that she dresses like a prostitute and thus she must smell bad because in their minds prostitutes have bad hygiene. It's similar to Emma making a joke about Jean having big feet. It doesn't make it canon that Jean has clown feet. It's a joke.

    If you want to make an argument using logic (even if there is nothing to be logic about since it's a joke) you could say that Emma has been around many people with enhanced sense of smell and not always as friends, and the only thing that came out of that was that she smelled like "Jasmine". Also the distance wouldn't allow the old ladies to smell her body parts unless they're enhanced.

    Well, there could have been something to the "you need to wash yourself" statement, considering both Cyclops and Emma arrived too late to the council meeting at the same time. Would explain Cyclops' embarrassment on being called out and Shaw's amusement (he can read between the lines too).

    Not really.

    It's the "8" following the pattern of "2"/"4"/"6" that had seen those women ripping each other for the entire issue before Emma turned up.

    I think there are two sides to the “I am not happy of this direction” diatribe. Yes people are entitled to an opinion. But when people start posting multiple times in the same thread always repeating themselves they make reading the thread a chore, and they kill the conversation about the story itself. It becomes about the run, the writer or the direction of the line, and necessarily it becomes repetitive: “characters are OOC”, “Hickman dialogue is stiff”, “this book is too plot-driven” repeated ad nauseam.

    I believe thread about the story should be about the story not about voicing distress or unhappiness about an entire line of books or a writer. If people really need to voice their unhappiness with this run, why they don’t make an “Unhappy with the Hickman run” thread for that? Nobody would have a problem with that, ti wouldn’t hijack discussion on episodes or arc, or thread with another intention or topic, looks like it would be the smarter solution.

    Those are valid criticisms on an issue to issue basis, however, especially in a book where you don't necessarily have an over-arching arc. I do want to reiterate: the dialogue did nothing to further the plot or generate investment, especially in this issue. The grannies were grating and the jokes drawn out, to the point where you just wind up confused at what they're actually trying to say.

    Another thing I'd like to add is that Hickman really needs to learn to write combat situations by the look of it: he needs to make use of Scott's ability to strategise, old ladies or not, same with other characters. It's like choreography within writing; don't just have them spouting things. Use script-time for action direction. You can have entire panels dialogue-less if need be just to show Scott dodging a punch or manoeuvring his way around. Have Emma just watch judgementally even! Not everything needs to be a snappy quip that just bogs down what's going on.
