    If a character has to be written OUT of character to make the plot work, the problem is not the character. Writers should not be just ignoring a character's established personality or behavior just because they want to do something with them that the character ordinarily wouldn't do.
    This is where the editors should come in. They should be riding herd over the writers to make sure they don't pull stuff like that.

    At least with this, it seems that he may just playing by mutant rules. Maybe he views mutants and their “rebirths” and possible immortality as just part of the natural order of things according to evolution.

    Just one of several reasons why making Xavier an unethical character is a dumb idea. The only reason the X-Men don't win forever is a belief in not forcing their ideals. If Xavier is a dick, it makes no sense that he hasn't just altered the minds of all the world leaders.

    If their minds can be altered for good, they can be altered for bad just as easily. And there's the problem of enforcing a way of thinking. One incident with a bad mutant and you have a cascading effect where things go back to zero. Or worse than that in case people find out what he did the first time.

    Xavier was already playing God the moment he decided to turn five teenagers into child soldiers because his dream was worth fighting for, so it's not like it's anything new. It's just on a different scale.

    Didn't Emma Frost do this in the last Uncanny book? I didn't read it so I'm not sure.

    I don't get the "exploitative" critique. It's just a pose taken from the back which is completely different from an "ass-shot". Her back isn't arched suggestively, her butt isn't emphasised "gratuitously"...her claws are out and she seems ready for "cutting a bitch"...if it seems sexualized in any way that's on the viewer.

    It's from an upward angle, that emphasizes the ass. It might not be deliberate, and just the way the artist has become accustomed to doing this kind of picture, but it's a few degrees off from not being an ass shot.

    Context is king.

    X-23's most basic surface level characteristic that any idiot should grasp: Stoicism.
    I don't demand that her every minor appearance be a nuance in-depth examination of her character, but is it to much to ask she be written in Archetype?! This is storytelling 101! If you want people to stay invested in a character, you need to, at the bare minimum, write them such a way that they can plausibly be believed to be the same character!

    gimme magneto booty, just cut a hole in the cape
    Our main character, a socially awkward outcast, gains newfound confidence and arrogance before committing a string of horrid acts. He then wears a fancy suit and proceeds to dance like a maniac to music that isn't actually there playing around him.
