Emma's Friend Jaye?

#1 Posted by sonic5328 (92 posts) - - Show Bio

In Uncanny X-Men #529 Emma Frost talks about an old friend named Jaye that she used to know. Anyone know who that is?

I don't think it's a character that existed previously. 
In the Emma Frost series she was friends with Astrid Bloom and another girl I don't remember the name though... could be that girl, but I doubt it.

No I already looked into that. It's not. It's weird that they mention a previously unknown mutant considering how few there are.

The reference is to real live person (Jayè Donovynne) who worked under several pen names as a writer and artist. He suffered an aneurism causing him to exit the field. It was a nod to him.

Busted, the release date doesn't line up with Jaye's "Episode" which I can only assume you are him. I am screenshotting this and it's going in the evidence of your bullshit file.

@hopesummersforthefuture: actually quoting the writer from his appearance at Emerald City Con. It was a "nod" to him meaning not factually based of him, just the name. If you have an issue with gender roles being switched, avoid the Thor comics ;).

@anvilquick: I know that it wasn't him that personally wrote it. I am saying his "brain troubles" hadn't happened when that issue released so it wouldn't make sense to give a "nod" to him.

@anvilquick: I'll find a way to contact him and just ask him about it. Should be educational.
