Who writes her worst? Badly written moments?

Emma is a character you either love or love to hate, but there is no denying Emma has had some of the best darn writing within the last 10 years that has made her one of the most intriguing of the X-Men. She's a flawed, complex character, that can be insecure, caring, vain, callous etc. So you get my point? She's a woman of many dimensions.

In the hands of Morrison, Whedon and currently Gillen, Emma is a cunning, intelligent woman whose wit can crack you like a whip, yet at the same time her flaws and insecurities are present.

The lovely, morally ambiguous Emma Frost can be a brilliantly written character. With "can be" being the operative words.

Often she can be Regina George pre-bus-accident, other times she's just Scott's girlfriend rather than his partner and equal or she could just be the token eye candy.

What I wish to know is whether if there is a writer or perhaps even moments that you don't think she is "Emma Frost" but reduced to something else.

Going by stuff maybe within the last few years I think it was during the Curse of the Mutants, X-Men volume 3 1-6. Emma was just written as Scott's girlfriend. She was there, made a snappy 1 liner and then stood there like eye candy. Nothing really good and I think she is more vocal of a character. However, in the next arc after, Gischler did focus the arc on Emma and wrote her pretty well IMO. She was her sarcastic, witty b*tchy self but also was able to hold her own like fighting some lizard creatures without powers and eventually went diamond and fought a lizard Gambit, Wolverine and Storm for a few panels by herself before Spider-Man showed up.

So I think Gischler can write her well, nothing that's like extraordinarily amazing, but enough to where he gets the character or he can write her as just eyecandy.

Also, I could go on about Fraction's run but that has been heard so many times on here. However, to give him props he did have a few good Emma and Cyke moments.

I'd like to see Wood take a shot at her.

Fraction definitely wrote her worse than any other writer that had her on their book.

From what I can tell, Fraction's characterization of her is universally despised.

LMFAO.
 
I literally thought, before entering this thread "bet someone is going to rage about Fraction".
 
Oh, DH, how I love thee.

Anytime she says "darling" is a bad moment ~
