So we have had some great Emma's, some okay Emma's and some really bad Emma's...

So in your opinion wrote the best Emma and the worst Emma?

Best: Claremont, Lobdell and Morrison (I think Spurrier could write an awe-inspiring Emma, depending on the context).

Worst: Fraction, Bendis and Bendis.

Best: Morrison, Milligan, and Claremont

Worst: Fraction, Whedon, Yost, and Bendis

The subservient Emma is my least favorite Emma. Without the pseudo-class, sass, and self-confidence she's nothing but typical Frank Cho-esque objectification.

Scott Lobdell was the first writer to make me like Emma when she was in The Uncanny X-Men and Generation X, back in '94, so I guess I think of him as the writer who made her interesting in the first place. I never cared much for Claremont's version of the character.

I like Morrison's version, but I like Whedon's better.

Bendis doesn't use the character much, but I actually generally like it when he does.

I can name a few, but I just want to mention one. Whedon.

The writers that made me really like Emma as a character are Morrison and Whedon. Currently I'm sad she's underused by Bendis. And worst, I'd say Fraction (sad since I generally really like Fraction).

Best are Morrison, Claremont, and then Whedon.Worst are Bendis and then Fraction. Yes, Bendis is worse. Emma at least had some moments under his run.

Whedon. He gave her back alot of the heart she lost under Morrisons pen.

Idk if even Bendis or Fraction did that bad...since idk if a lack of use of a specific character is necessarily a bad use of the character. And considering how Fraction left the majority of the X-men to drown in the background idk if Emma was even that bad in general.

Best : Morrison and Whedon, even though I can't stand Morrison, he did write the best Emma Frost.

Worst : Fraction & Gillian. Emma Frost lived in Cyclops shadows, became nothing more than a sex toy for Cyclops and followed in the same footsteps as Jean Grey.

I actually like Bendis version of Emma, she not his priority, but she had some cool moments.

Probably the only time I've ever seen the words 'best', 'Lobdell' and 'Morrison' on the same line of text :)

Morrison ruined Emma the second he turned her into a walking plastic doll.

K/Y Emma is the one I enjoyed the most.
