Emma's role in Age of Ultron!

#1 Posted by queenfrost_ (2499 posts) - - Show Bio

So you should all know by now that Emma Frost is

part of the rebel alliance team thingy that survive ultron's attack along with some other cool heroes (apart from wolverine)

But how do you think she will work in to it? She has lot her TP so she can't be the "token telepath" anymore. We all know she is a team player despite her ice cold persona, but she is also a natural leader. How will she cope with her new position? And her new de facto teammates? What do you think will become of Emma? I have a really bad, bad, bad, feeling Bendis will kill her off. And if not, seriously mess up her character. But then again, this could benefit Emma. Make her more of primitive survivalist than a mental survivalist (meaning she uses more brawn and aggression to survive as opposed to previously using her intelligence, confidence and telepathy to survive).

Plus, I guess this kinda justifies why Emma was left out of the all new all female X-Men roster.

Anyway, thoughts?

Her diamond form could still offer some offensive capabilities and is ridiculously and if she gets a strength upgrade at least, awesome. And she does offer natural intelligence and as you put, leadership or some advice. She isn't completely useless here.

She'll talk a lot. Probably share an elevator with Luke Cage, and say a lot of witty and bitchy things. Then Spider-man will make a cool reference to a nineties movie, Moon Knight will say something crazy, then Wolverine will be like all "...." then Cage will say DAMN! Then talk about being a father. Since you know its Bendis? He's great with dialogue! This cast of characters was probably chosen based on how great Bendis is with dialogue and their ability to bounce conversations of each other naturally and organically. Naturally. Of course.

@queenfrost_: I really don't know what's going on with AU. I have clue where this fits in the Marvel time line. Is that Peter Parker or Doc Ock Spider-Man? Is Emma Frost's powers still wonky. Is this taking place before or after She-Hulk joined the F.F.? As for Emma joining Brian Wood's X-Men, Wood's wanted her, but the X-Men editor said no......

This the costumes make me think this is an alt universe thing.

Anyway Bendis has two strikes when it comes to Emma Frost on his list already "The Daredevil fight and All New X-Men" if Uncanny doesn't do her justice then I dread her role in this more than I look forward to it.

Well saying he chucked a club at the side of her face just sounds so depressing.

@Blood1991: I think it was a reasonable feat considering the things Daredevil can do, albeit embarrassing for Emma. Not like he miswrote her or anything in that issue.

Yeah DD has the skills, and Uncanny is coming up fast. We shall see, but I am rather pessimistic at this point :/

@judasnixon: I think it is set up to date. Because the trailer says its within the MARVEL NOW! thingy. The promo also shows Emma in a black costume and the FF off in their adventure thingy they are doing.

@Blood1991: It isn't an alt universe, the trailer says "THIS ISN'T ANOTHER UNIVERSE. THIS ISN'T THE FUTURE. THIS IS NOW."

Which promo? Could you pretty please post the link here? Because, aside from the Trailer video where Emma appears in some terrible art alongside Wolverine, I haven't seen any AU material featuring her.

Anyways, I really hope she gets her TP back by then. One good Telepath would come real in handy for the rebellion team.

@GonnaRain: Actually I could see Emma not having her telepathy in Age of Ultron. It not like she could read Ultron's mind if she had it.......

I don't know about you guys but I think for Age Of Ultron the Heroes will need someone with EXPERIENCE in the field of machines.DONATELLO!!!!!!

#20 Posted by Ceddsong (44 posts) - - Show Bio

@oscar94 you're absolutely right. No one on that team is a technician and while Beast is brilliant I believe his expertise is Biology and other similar sciences. Additionally, while I love Emma Im not sure what she'll bring to the team, despite being near fully indestructible.

#21 Posted by queenfrost_ (2499 posts) - - Show Bio

@GonnaRain: Bendis has clearly stated that she won't get it back any time soon. And I think Marvel wants the survivalist team to be stripped to their bare minimals which is why they don't have a lot of powerhouses on the team

By god... what you wrote is beautiful. I think you captured it to a T.

Hahaha "Damn! ...I change diapers!"

I think she'll get her telepathy back. If anything they'll probably use her like they did in House of M. I mean it wouldn't surprise me, nothing is original anymore!

Emma in AoU

#25 Posted by GonnaRain (752 posts) - - Show Bio

The art in that specific page looks awful.

#26 Posted by PassionFlower (960 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm surprised she is even in it.

#27 Posted by doddy (251 posts) - - Show Bio

I’ve heard that AoU was originally planed released last year as the major event but eventually replaced by AvX. That could explain the weird lineup of the remaining heroes.

I completely agree with your breakdown. You nailed it.

So does as she read his mind does this mean Emma knows Spider-man is Octavius now? Because if she did she didn't show much concern about having a psychopath running around or is this just bad writing lol?
