Definitely, she'd be a perfect meld with the team.

I voted yes, but I wouldn't mind seeing Frenzy either. Or both. Why not both?

Emma Frost, Stepford Cuckoos, Magik.

If you add Frenzy and Monet into the team, Bendis literally just needs to write issues of them bickering about irrelevant matters. Worse still, it would literally be in character.

i for one always thought that Monet would follow Emma a little more closely seeing as in an essence they are kind of similar in the way they carry themselves as far as looking down on others

#12 Posted by HAWK2916 (1916 posts) - - Show Bio

Are we adding Frenzy just as a love interest for Cyclops? And if Monet is on the team would you get rid of Emma?

No and No, Frenzy fits a need and is a unused character that would be great to get some spotlight (a need as in they don't really have a fighter type character) and no not get rid of Emma i would love too see M and Emma interact after all Emma was her head mistress

I assumed their archetype was too similar as bruisers, but then honestly I'm a little unclear on Monet's powerset. She flies, she's tough, she's strong, but is there more there?

I think Emma and M are very similar but M got in touch with her good side much earlier in her life than Emma did. It would be interesting to see interaction between the 2 of them as equals, as M as been kind of on the Marvel sidelines for years while in X-Factor.

Monet is dead. So I dont think she's gonna be joining anytime soon.

I would like Wolfsbane, Moonstar, Toad or Pyro to join instead.

She's also telepathic, and she's supposed to be super intelligent (though, I don't know how much this is remembered by writers). They are both generally in the bruiser role, but they have really different personalities, and that's more what interests me.

Sure then, both sounds fine to me. The new FF has two bruisers and that seems to work there I suppose.

Monet's telepathy is no way near as good as Emma's was.

oh, probably not. Half the time it seemed like writers forgot she even had telepathy because of her other powers.

#21 Posted by Aero_gt (840 posts) - - Show Bio

Monet has Super Strength and the team can't have Emma be their muscle, that's like having Monet be their Telepath. -3+

#22 Edited by Silver_Raven (351 posts) - - Show Bio

Monet is perfect. And is would be such a great addition to that boring team of blondes and lesser beings. I can see her bicker and bond with Emma, be a valuable asset to Cyclops' cause, have cerebral conversations with Magneto, and befriend the Darkchylde and bring her out of her demonic shell.

And if this wish i granted, i hope Monet could bring her twin sisters into the school as well. Emma has her girls, Monet should have her too.

Plus seeing as how M was just brought back to life by the person who killed her, Guido, I'd say the last thing she'd want is to join Cyclops, her former teacher, and other mutants who she really hasn't had any contact with!

#25 Posted by Perfect 10 (1115 posts) - - Show Bio

yes cause uncanny ROCKS and it would be great to have monet and emma reunited but with the cuckoos and emma already members it maybe too many similar personalities to have on the same team (plus they are all telepaths to boot)

Not even that, i'm more surprised at the fact that some people seriously seem to be under the impression that Bendis knows how write and develop dominant women past the typical plot-element tropes.

I think Marvel has the right idea of her now. Killing her.

#29 Posted by Dernman (15264 posts) - - Show Bio

I would rather avoid the whole Muslim joining a debatable revolunary/terrorist terrorist group thing. Someone mentioned Frenzy. I believe she is a better fit personality wise than M anyway.

Exactly.... I know M's personality comes off as a b*tch but there's more to it than that!

Does anyone think Monet would be cool on Storm's team?

I'd like to see her on the same team as Jubilee, and I don't think she'd be wildly out of place there.

ditto. There needs to be more Frenzy.

At this point Im almost about ready for Emma Frost to take a step back and just focus on teaching and running the school. Either that or kill her

#35 Posted by Cyclops4President (587 posts) - - Show Bio

I thought she could be good on Storm's all girl X-Men team, but I think M is a better fit for Uncanny X-Men with Scott. She is more edgy and moody, she would fit in well with his little band of misfits and outlaws.

#36 Posted by Selina_Sublime (160 posts) - - Show Bio

I know that Brian Wood has been pushing for Monet to be in his book and Bachalo has been pushing for a Gen X-er to join Uncanny (although specifically he prefers Chamber), so hopefully she'll get out X-Factor into something new/better.

#37 Posted by HAWK2916 (1916 posts) - - Show Bio

Monet fits uncanny imo. And frenzy should be on Storms team
