    Yeah it's superhuman strength, not superhuman muscle mass. It's not that I dislike buff characters, it's that it doesn't fit here.

    There's definitely room for both. Frenzy can be buff. Monet can be svelte.

    Bunn's Uncanny X-men such an underrated gem, and I didn't appreciate Monet's melanin enough!

    Agreed. Lashley does a better Monet, the one credit I can give him. But Monet was nicely brown and I overall enjoyed the series despite getting bogged down with mandate (while Rosenberg's mess was free reign).

    This STILL remains the last X-book I actually enjoyed. And nothing has come close. Thus far, Hickman hasn't done anything for me to like, but enough to piss me off lol, Bunn was the last writer doing anything with Monet beyond cameos and token background character-ism. lol

    So I have been hanging on by a thread & coming back to see if anything is being done or coming up. Despite Monet being in some books, she's STILL hardly ever in any upcoming art and if she's on covers, it's as Penance who I don't wanna see. Seems like another way of not having to show her as black / brown.

    I realize it’s not a popular idea. I just see it as a way to comic-bookly explain how all her varied powers actually stem from the same, main function.
    I like the idea that super strong/invulnerable types have greater cell density or even a stronger energetic field about their atoms/molecules/cells that grants them greater cohesion and tensile strength. They don't have to have bigger muscles, they just have to have more efficient muscles. I mean, even normal people are way stronger than they behave most of the time. You know, when a car is going to run over a baby and a mom picks up the car kinda stuff. You muscles are actually strong enough to break your bones, but you hold back. If you augment human physiology slightly at the physical level[with the X-gene], you could indeed attain vast feats of strength in a slender form. Similarly, by augmenting the brain/nervous system, that stronger energetic field could allow for electrostatic repulsion(flying) and the telepathic stuff.

    Similarity, by augmenting the brain/nervous system, that stronger energetic field could give one tactile telekinesis.

    Just disagreeing that one explanation is more contrived than the other. ::shrug::

    Intriguing. You're the second person I've come across with this ship. Care to elaborate?

    Jimmy is a beef cake. IRL men like Jimmy are hard to find, handsome ass mountains of muscle who are nice, intelligent, and dependable. Also he is the correct age, a little older but not much( she dont need no nasty old men), he is another POC( interracial is not just a white person and a poc-Black,Idigenous, Asian, Latinx, persons of color should also date other persons of color,those are the interracial relationships I want to see), and I think their different backgrounds would yield some interesting conversations( rich vs growing on up on a reservation) . Also during the baby hope saga, they had a few scenes together which made me start thinking about them as a pairing.

    All great points. I'm on board! I'm a big Proudstar fan, and I think he is grounded in a way that would appeal to Monet. He's a bit serious though, and I've envisioned her being with someone more...silly or light-hearted. Like a Sunspot, or the recent contender Maggott

    Also, if you are interested in more M Fanart, I made a collection on Deviantart)

    Filler, non-canon, and unlikely to come back up.

    Her last canon involvement
    is probably her tryst with Darwin, yuck. Lol

    Something new or Synch will be good.

    Wait, do we really collectively get to pretend that didn't happen? Because that whole relationship with Sabretooth made me queasy and I'd rather not acknowledge it, ever again. Ever

    Maybe it was one of her sisters-pretending-to-be-Monet-pretending-to-be-Xorn?

    Or a Skrull imposter. Darn those Skrulls! Almost as good as Doombots for explaining away OOC behavior.
