    But this isn't fun at all. And for Duggan work on x-line seems like another fanservice

    Theirs is certainly a unique situation, they could probably see romance on a diferent way.
    It would make sense for them to like the same things on a partner. Not a fan of it being done with Cable but the Cuckoos situation is special.
    They weren't all in love with Quentin. And bendis established very well their differences

    That is true the Cuckoos aren't all equal
    I'm biased
    I have twin brothers and they date very similar girls, at one point ones ex became the other girlfriend. So that can happen. Not sure Cable was the right guy for that but it is happening.

    that doesn't mean wanting same things, it has been long established

    that is weird. But they aren't dating same girl at the same time.

    And in some aspects, they would want the same thing.

    I really didn’t read that much into it. Felt more like a “watch this poor bastard have to juggle five demanding clones at once” comedic take to me. But I’m not very sensitive, admittedly.

    Kind of like in Spurrier’s X-Force when Betsy was just using Cable’s clones for sex, and making sure he took his headband memory recorder off beforehand each time so he’d have no recollection. Not to be taken too seriously or thought about too deeply in terms of what that says about power dynamics between sexes.

    Not that I care that much for the Cuckoos as characters, but on the surface, the concept is a bit eye-roll inducing. It's about as tasteful as making Jean and Emma into lobotomized sister-wives.

    Alas, taste is subjective.

    The three-in-one all dated Hellion. And only one of them had a crush on another mutant. Still not seeing the problem with characterization beyond that bad cover.

    A lot of the poly stuff can devolve into this, especially with so many male writers. It will just depend on the execution.

    This isn't a confidence vote for sure. And throught many years I have seen male writers do their male fantasies throught male chaarcters at the expense of female characters.

    putting teenagers on a poligamy relationship really seems bad taste for me.

    It really leaves a bad taste on the mouth

    That still is very "male problems". poor guy have to juggle the wife and the misstress.
    the cover structure is very "look at this guy getting 5 women".

    I thought that hypersexualized Betsy that was on a asian body. But the situation seems very different here.

    It might be true but not all writers do this for their fantasies or for male audiences. Like, for instance, Gwen and Osborn. Manga has done these things WAY worse than Comic Books on a larger scale(because sales are far more) for both females and males. It can go both ways.

    So what do you guys think their schedule is like? Maybe Jean gets Scott Monday through Thursday and Emma gets him on Friday and the weekend?

    This relaunch has been the most beneficial era for XWomen since the 80s. But lets pretend shipwars=fighting for a greater cause I guess.
