And as the clear loser, Jubilee.

    These are all just opinions, though.
    Yeah, Wolverine's design isn't that different. They got rid of the underoos, but they didn't really do anything to make up for it so now there's just a lot of yellow dead space.

    This is the only full view of Gambit's costume I've seen so far. It's pretty different. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but they definitely should have kept the cowl. (Sorry, I know this is a Jean thread!)

    I feel the same and thought about saying something earlier. I didn't always agree with her, but it is worrisome when mainstay members just vanish. We will assume the best! Sometimes it is good to take breaks from the internet and online forums.

    Things have been quiet lately and there hasn't been a ton of stuff to discuss. Hopefully we'll have some things to chew on this week and in the weeks to come.
    I can't wait for Giant Size Storm, and for the X of Swords preludes.

    Don't know if anyone collects figures but this'll be offered on Hasbro Pulse the 24th and 25th of this month. Hasbro Pulse members will be offered the box set a day early (24th) and then it'll be open to everyone on Friday.

    I love that Hasbro is so good with interchangeable heads! Jean/Black Queen/Selene is so much bang for your buck. Pierce to White King/Magneto! And that one figure that could be Moonstar/Karma/Wolfsbane!

    Which reminds me of the sad passing of the woman who is perhaps Claremont's physical model for Jean - Dame Diana Rigg. The Hellfire Club mindwhammy snake dance seems to have been lifted almost verbatim for Black Queen Jean.
    Dark does not mean deep.

    I was just about to say that.

    They could have gone with a softer shoulder design reminiscent of shoulder guards but not so bulky and pointy.

    The way Dauterman draws Jean’s shoulder pads is ideal. He makes them look sleek.

    The shoulders don't bother me too much for some reason. Jean definitely has the best redesign. Hopefully all this promotion for this new look is leading to something. I imagine its a cartoon.

    I think hers is the best primarily bc her original was so terrible. I liked the costume in the books but TAS made it ugly. The colors and that ponytail worked against her

    Great find! Jean definitely got the best redesign.

    But having said that, I really hope these are just for merch and not an animated series. It reminds me of that Fox Kids Avengers animated series from 1999-2000, with their original designs that were too fussy and trying to be cool/hip/modern. Whenever they don't use comic book accurate costumes in an animated series, that to me is a sign that they're targeting younger audiences and people that don't know anything about the source material.

    You mean you didn't like this "amazing" design for her!?


    What about when they redesigned it and made it worse?


    Between the terrible costume design and the character portrayal, 90's TAS Jean never had a chance.
