    I wish they changed the artist for this one. I can see he is really hardworking, but I still don't like it.

    But there's the case where many think nudity = sexualization are connected. In general, X-Tracts kinda seems like a hippie era. 70's, and I think that was a period where many people streaked & thought nothing of it. lol

    Then there's just more earthy people who feel nudity is natural, and there's nothing dirty or sexual about it.

    And again, far as sexualization goes, Emma is at the top of that list. lol I'm not seeing it with Unveil right now. A possible earthy girl or flower-child, maybe.

    The problem with the nudity =/= sexualization idea is that it ignores a long history of the sexualization and objectification of women's bodies, particularly in media. Context-less nudity, which is very much how the character has been designed and presented, is needless sexualization. There is no point here being made about cultural disparities like with Storm back in the day.

    Obviously, a real woman should be permitted to dress herself however she wishes, but this is not a real woman capable of making decisions for herself. It is a character that was created and designed by two (presumably straight) men. The psychedelic '60s vibe they are clearly going for could easily be accomplished with clothing. The '60s was the decade of the bikini and mini skirts, there are other options available for the theme they are trying to convey.

    In the description says she is half biological half gaseous, so I think clothes wouldn't make a lot of sense. And I really think her design is great. It just pops, mostly because of the colors.

    But there is a very good point to be made about you almost never seeing a male character like this. I think it is more a thing to just make male characters be naked, not prohibiting female characters to be naked. Well, the industry is going in baby steps in the right direction (it could be better though), but I don't think it is the case to think the creators were bad for making these choices with this character.

    It ain't art, but we finally know where Sabretooth ends up next.

    She's Bajan?! I love this! Can't wait to see Rihanna play her in a movie.

    I remember we got misty Vincente in AoA then he very briefly appeared in the 616. I also hope Unveil makes the jump but becomes more permanent. Of course, I hope she'll be a cool character and not just a cool visual and nationality.

    I know where you stand, but I personally prefer Creed as an antagonist, and I feel like some time spent away from the X-Books might be good for him anyhow. Also, that sounds like a solid Black Widow book with a great selection of villains (Baron Zemo, Taskmaster & Madam Masque)

    Many share that idea. I am still hoping he's not since Jen does interject that he's a good guy now. Maybe they didn't read Pak's Weapon X. In which case, Hallelujah. lol According to them, this is an old idea they pitched a while back, but just now got the green-light to do.

    Either way, I sworn off reading anything with him until I know he's not crapped on, then smeared in a toilet. That may keep me inactive on him for a while. lol

    Not to derail the thread too much here, but I'm not sure there's room for a heroic Creed right now. Especially since every other Wolverine derivative and adjacent character are still in action.

    I guess we'll see what happens with this Black Widow series and whether or not they can do him justice

    DC got into trouble because they gave batman a penis, so it'll be awhile before we see male flesh....there's a HUGE double standard with male and female nudity in comics. Mostly because men are still the ones in charge in these companies. You can fill the ranks of artists/writers with women all you want, but if men are still 97% of these companies you're not seeing the correct change in the industry.

    It's not derailing too much. lol I agree fans would have to wait & see. I am not familiar with the sisters doing the series, so I don't know their writing style. MAYBE they'll be like Jolley, Tierri, Bunn or Brisson and write an actual good Sabretooth. Then again, they may be another Pak, Bendis, Austen.Loeb, or Rucka, and write the stupid, jobbing, incompetent one.

    Far the last decade, the record has been in favorite of jobbing moronic Creed, so naturally, Creed fans have to be cautious when he's in anything, because usually he's a comedy villain.

    Ramirez is the third artist on UXM #11, probably to add more pages of Cyclops and Wolverine eating at Arby's and to further punish the fans by distracting him from drawing the destined Boom-Boom solo that we all need and would definitely buy.

    Would Cyclops have recruited Boom Boom if she wasn’t sleeping through her X-Force assignments?

    He should be the main artist. I feel robbed for not having him or Coello on Uncanny instead of Larroca.
