I don't know what it is about her. She's been on the 'good side' just as long as Gambit has, and I trust him (at least I did until he joined the Marauders again...), but I've never been able to fully trust that Emma won't stab the X-Men in the back someday.
Am I the only one who still doesn't fully trust her?
I prefer White Queen to be neutral... she does what she does as long as it puts her forward than the others. Kinda like Catwoman only more of a b#tch version. But I agree, regardless if she was a villain before, Emma has known to be caring to her students even in a little way possible and do care about mutant affairs.
I don't trust her. I don't think that she's going to go back to being a villain again, but I ... [more]

Maybe I'm just biased against her because she's with Scott. The romance of Scott and Jean was probably 20 years in the making (our time), then they FINALLY get married and they're living a cool married life. Then Scott starts telepathically cheating on Jean with a b!+chy blonde Victoria's Secret model who used to be an enemy of the X-Men. Jean gets really pissed off about it but dies (again...). Just before she dies she gives her blessing to Scott and Emma.
And just like that, Scott and Jean's relationship is obliterated.
I trust her. Marvel's completely changed her character around. I posted some scans in the X-Men thread about the Upcoming "Dark Avengers vs X-Men" crossover. And they have some of Matt Fraction's own views on individual characters. He explains the reason Osborn has targeted the X-Men is because Emma hasn't been living up to her side of the deal in the Cabal (in so many words). Her loyalty is, and has been, to the X-Men for years now. She's come through time and time again. In fact I think she'll always side with them up until they the day they (marvel) bring Jean back. That's the only way she'll turn evil again in my opinion.

They were falling out of love with one another before the Psychic Affair. That's why he sought Emma's help, because she's a licensed [sex] therapist.... In Obliterating the marriage, she just sped up the inevitable.
I don't think they would have fallen out of love with each other if Grant Morrison hadn't been given free reign to shake everything up. The first thing he did? Destroyed their marriage. You can just tell he's living a happily ever after :p
I have to disagree with the Last paragraph, Emma is an X-Man, has been for years, and because of that she's commited to her teammates. While on the surface what she may be doing may seem shady or selfish, there's always more to it, i.e.. Kitty/Cassandra Nova/Emma in Astonishing X-Men. She thought she was protecting Hellion by abandoning him and cutting his ties with the X-Men. I do understand the minor Paranoia bit about whether or not she's using her abilities to influence your thoughts, and i can understand a distrut there, but overall, her heart is in the right place even though we may not agree on the course of action.
One thing that i hate though is how Emma Was portrayed in generation X, to how she is now. Generation X started out as The Former White Queen then turned into a Soccer Mom, and now... well, we know how is Emma is now. But what happened in between?! Surely it wasn't just murdering her sister because she killed Synch.
Most of the X-Men aren't supposed to be trusted.... I mean even Boy scout Scott has done his questionable things.... It's just the fact that Emma tried to kill her temates once in a while makes her even a higher candidate for doing something dumb or not-trustworthy.....
Yeah, I accept she's been with the X-Men for such a long time now. I re-read the Phalanx Covenant the other week, and she was wonderfully bitchy all the way through. But they were forced to rely on her, even though they weren't sure whether they could trust her. That's how I prefer her. As someone who isn't wholly reliable.
i completely understand what you're saying, i'm a tad biased in that i want her to be around with the X-men for centuries and so i'd like you to stop giving Matt Fraction's ideas please. He is a member of CV, i just know it... seriously though, i can accept her to always be calculating something or another, but i don't want her to be cut from the same cloth as Mystique. But she's been reformed for 20 years so to digress her like that back to the, "whose side is she really on" stuff would seem a little Deja Vu at this point. But Idk, i understand your hesitation to trusting her fully now!
I know she's your ice queen, just as I love the bratty explosive types :) And I'm just a bundle of inconsistant thoughts when it comes to Emma. I know she's been reformed, but I preferred her as a villain. That said, I don't want her to suddenly ditch all her years with Gen X & the X-Men to become a villain again... A lot of the X-Men books seem to revovle around her & Cyclops lately... I'd hate for her to become the new "Jeeeeeeeeaaaaaan!" if you know what I mean ;)

I love her, and think she's become a facinating character...and don't trust her for an instant. Their are always schemes and plots spinning behind those eyes. And if Jean comes back, I hope she moves past Scott and gets on with her life. That man's a waste of her time...and Emma's, for that matter...
Maybe something ablut how she's prancing around in black and serving Norman Osbourn like a stuge has something to do with it. Though...it could all be an act. She could finish the Dark X-Men series (books I wont be buying, as I can't afford to add any more books to my list) by betraying Norman and trouncing the Dark Avengers.

She's not doing a very good job, Pix. She could have been at the protest in the opening of Utopia to keep everyone calm. She met with Osborn instead of helping with the riots later in the same issue. As a result, Beast and Scott are incarcerated, and students are needlessly injured on both occasions. These things are not good for mutants. Neither is imprisoning Xavier and stealing his (and others') powers.
" @pixelized said:exactly, he's writing someone elses idea and thinks he's being clever but is failing miserably." what do you expect from Matt Fraction Korgy Pie? "A cheap trade to complete my collection when it's 33% off at Amazon?"
