    It is less Marvel I trust and more Leah Williams who is a very, very vocal trans (and LGBTQ folks in general) ally and has talked about speaking with trans folks to handle issues correctly in the past

    Additionally, every trans person has their own views on the issue. That twitter person may have phrased it wrong but if, like, I was given the choice of trading in my current body for one I feel comfortable in from the jump versus having to take daily hormones and maybe surgery to feel more at home in my own skin

    I would not hesitate for a moment.

    I think it is a fair angle to explore, especially given how basically non-existent trans stories are in superhero books

    I also think it's important to let creators tell these kinds of stories too, even knowing they might occasionally fuck something up.

    Honestly with Ilyana being confirmed to be queer, Kate and Emma having an EXTREMELY gay scene in the latest Marauders and the very heavy hints at the Logan/Scott/Jean poly thing

    I am really hoping this is just the Queerest X-Era ever

    Also, specifically, give me Kate and Ilyana GODDAMMIT

    Speaking of Emma I saw a thing recently that pointed out that Emma is from Boston and mused on the idea of writing her lines phonetically and also what if she was just a huge sports nerd like and it was special.

    I believe in her ancient solo origin story books she actually purposefully ironed out all the masshole on top of plastic surgery.

    IIRC Emma doesn't like where she came from and that motivated her to become who she is

    So if anything, she'd be a Yankees fan and/or stan for Eli Manning

    I feel like that would be the case until like, the second Red Sox World Series.

    Patriots fan during the 18-1 season(for one season), getting off, until the Atlanta Superbowl. After which she has a prolific collection of hoodies and Tom Brady alternate jerseys.

    Nah, Emma dancing in her Manning jersey around a dumbfounded Cyke watching the replay of the helmet catch is my new favorite Emma Frost moment

    Emma ain't from Boston, she's from like Newton or something. Not the sort of place you get a Boston accent from.

    FFF oh no the Yankees/Giants thing checks out then.

    I still think there is a universe where Emma super leans into everything Bawston even though she’s tangentially from there.

    I see "Emma Frost, the White Queen" as very much a person of her own creation. She's made a deliberate break from her origins, whatever they are.

    I

    Wouldn't say it is a complete break from her origins, more from some of her family

    She comes from a rich, snobby family of jerks and was classically educated

    She is very much a product of that upbringing. Plus, her brother is an active part of her life again

    I’m not entirely sure they’re broken up anymore, Emma said something to Scott recently post-krakoa like “that’s why I love you” plus the Scott-jean-logan polycule makes me think it’s actually four-person

    New X-Factor series by Leah Williams and David Baldeon

    DxfWnRjl.jpg

    https://www.polygon.com/platform/amp/2020/1/13/21060674/marvel-comics-new-x-men-series-x-factor-leah-williams
    The next wrinkle in the unfolding story of the X-Men is all about the newest mutant power: unlimited resurrection. Polygon can exclusively announce the next book to join Marvel’s expanding X-Men slate is X-Factor, and partly about the Five, a group of characters whose powers combine to create the miracle of mutant immortality.

    But it’s mostly about a new team of Krakoan operatives, comprised of the speedy Northstar, one of Marvel’s earliest openly queer characters; the all-seeing Eye Boy; the telepathic Rachel Grey; the polymath Prodigy; the magnetic Polaris; and Daken, Wolverine’s disaster son. They are X-Factor, and their job is to investigate and confirm mutant deaths — but not to avenge them.

    That’s because the Five resurrect a mutant by creating a new body for them, and telepathically implanting a backup of their mind and personality. In the new series, X-Factor will hunt down missing mutants to confirm their deaths, so that the Five never run the risk of creating a duplicate of a living mutant — because that’s a big no no.

    FUCK

    YES

    I LOVE THIS LINEUP

    The Celestial Madonna was supposed to give birth to the Celestial Messiah; a being that destined to change the universe. This wound up being Mantis mating with a tree-man (who had taken the form of then deceased Avenger Swordsman) and producing Sequoia, who so far hasn't really lived up to his title.

    EDIT: IIRC, the Treeman was a Cotati, who were the species who evolved on Hala alongside the Kree, so that might play into the Kree/Skrull stuff of Empyre.

    The "doctor strange 2 is being destroyed by diversity" 4chan rumor going around is pretty funny

    It claims derrickson wanted to open the movie with christine, wong, and the cape all being murdered but feige wouldn't allow it because of political corectness and they got into a screaming match over how much wanda should be in the film

    Taskmaster by Jed McKay and Alessandro Vitti. Taskmaster has been framed for the murder of Maria Hill and is now the most wanted man on the planet, on the run to clear his name.

    Widowmakers: Yelena Belova and Red Guardian, by Devin Grayson and Michele Bandini, which had the two forgotten Russian heroes returning onto the global espionage scene to find their place in a world that has left them behind.

    I wonder if the Task Master mini will follow up on the whole "former shield agent who forgot he went undercover" thing from his mini years ago.

    I don't think it's been touched since then?

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    That mini is

    Frustrating

    Because it is super fuckin fun and hilarious and just a good time

    But that retcon just doesn't work for Taskmaster at all and it is good that it's been largely ignored

    so apparently Teen Cable is going to be dating the Stepford Cuckoos.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it? Here’s what Cable writer Gerry Duggan had to say about the image:

    “Here we have a fantastic Noto portrait of a young man that has bitten off more than he can chew. When you date one Cuckoo, you date them all. Come to Krakoa! It makes Hawaii feel like Hoboken.“
