    I've never saw this before. What awful story was this and now I'm curious about who wrote it.

    I didn't want to say too much and I noticed it was an unpopular view on twitter but my problem with Emma using her chest to distract the men in the recent Marauders issue was because I can't help but be uncomfortable with straight men writing these scenes. It wasn't a critique on Emma the character but more on the fantasy aspect of the straight writers who come up with this stuff. Just my personal opinion.

    I still love Emma in Marauders and like that she gets so much attention and uses her powers in smart ways (as opposed to psychic blasts and the like).

    I'm not against "hornyness" but it should be balanced, Bishop or Bobby should be the next to do something like that.

    No as that would be out of character of them. That seems more on brand for some like Daken

    ...and then you have to further ask: How does portraying the character in that "horny" light, serve the character and more importantly, serve the story?

    That's why I had absolutely no issue with Emma unbuttoning her coat in Marauders 10. In that moment her actions served her character while simultaneously serving the story.

    I'm not saying they do it on purpose, I'm just saying a little eyecandy for the reader. Personally, I'm not attracted to men, but I'm sure there are people who want to see Bishop in scant clothes.

    Emma has been portrayed as not having pronlems with nudity before. And she gets creative and as someone posted earlier, extra, when she's on the field. The moment was very Emma to me. And what's funny is that if she could see people having reactions to it online, positive or negative, she would see it as a win anyway.

    And in fairness, Bobby was wearing flip flops and underwear at the beginning of the book, so I say that is not just a female character thing and more that Duggan just has a certain thing with catching characters in these situations.

    I can count 4 I really dislike but that story is particularly bad. Its in the bottom two. And that writer has a history of garbage like that. And well known for misogyny.

    I think I'd place it as the absolute worst.

    As for the unbuttoning of her top, I found it funny, it didn't really serve much of a purpose as its not something that Frost hasn't done without it. But it was funny I'll give him that.

    Its very different to that A+X story which was pure garbage

    Was it so horrible of Emma to mind condition the Russian bigots?

    The only unthinkable action on that issue was that Emma needed Esme, Mindee, Celeste and Phoebe to do the brainwashing, something she could have done alone.

    Unthinkable? CBR is so damn dramatic. Jean pretty much did something similar to Cassandra Nova and Psylocke did to Mystique to a lesser extent

    CBR articles were always bad but they really took a nosedive because of the lack of content to talk about during the quarentine.

    I think she was more likely lecturing/training them in how to do it... :-)

    Just because a character can "do it alone"...technically, every character can "do it alone"...does not mean that they can't/shouldn't ask for/require help.
    In a team book, two characters sharing the effort does not demean either.
