Elemental Mimicry & Manipulation:

Mimicking Gold
Mimicking Diamond

When Miranda makes physical contact with a substance (in what ever state - solid, liquid, gad or plasma) she can convert her body into that substance. At first she can control only the converted material aka herself, but if she stays in one form for 2 hours or more she can control the substance no matter its origin. Her abilities depend on the subsistence she turned into. With some substances she can hide her transformation (these substances can only be discover by trial-and-error method and are people specific (Miranda can stay in human form while someone else couldn't)) but it can be detected by a strong physical contact. Miranda can't convert from one substance to another - she has to turn back human first. In all non-human forms she is impervious to poisons and toxins (unless they react to the substance she's made of); mental attacks and mind reading; she doesn't require food, water, air etc; immune to pressure changes.

Diary of Miranda Frost

Entry #P8X-412

I have to say I'm actually quite happy living on a space ship. Even if it is a bit small. I mean The Tempest is only meant for 60 people. The Aurora can support up to 500 people. But honestly I don't mind - I actually like it. I'm think of this place as a test home ... with enough firepower to decimate a small city. Oh, well - can't be that picky. And there are enough good things about it: teleport rings, I installed the beaming tech, an armory filled to the brim, more then a few pieces of equipment the world hasn't seen before and a huge bed. That last part's my favorite. For obvious reasons.

Though I am trying to hold myself back. Corinthos keeps telling me he's fine but it hasn't been that long and I can't help but worry. It would be so much easier if he was human. Well, that's not true, a human couldn't go through all of what he did. And when I think about it, it makes me want to kill people. But then I go down to the maintenance bay and look at that box of green slime. That just happens to be the remains of the man who did this to my love. And the best thing - even as slime he is still alive and suffering more then he could ever produce on his own.

But that's not important. Not really. It's all in the past and I have no intention of looking back. Well, if I do, then only on the good parts. Most of them have to do with Corinthos anyway and he still here and he'll always will be here, next to me. I know that without a shadow of a doubt. But the ring helps of course.

(Next post in a couple of day.)

The Lit-Up Halo - January Jones' Emma Frost moments

I have decided to start a weekly (hopefully) blog about comic-book and not so comic-book related subjects. The first topic, as people can guess from the title, is related to X-Men: First Class. I know that there are quite the number of people who were not happy with the portrayal of Emma Frost by January Jones. I think I don't have to list the reasons. But after watching the movie a couple of more times I have noticed subtle moments that are worth the Diamond Beauty. SPOILERS! I will be giving the context of the moments so if you haven't watched the movie stop reading.
 

Moment nr. 1 - The Stare

This moment happens quite early in the movie. Magneto ( Michael Fassbender) is preparing to attempt to kill Shaw ( Kevin Bacon). He is being all bad-a** in a rubber-suit and everything. And is completely taken off guard by Emma's psychic attack. The camera zooms in on her eyes and there it was - it really gave a new meaning to the phrase stare-down. For me those eyes filled with the slight anger but more with determination. They say "This was your last mistake! Suffer!"
Thanks the the magic of the gif, we can see it in action.
 

Moment nr. 2 - The Smile(s)

This is kinda of a cheat because there are 3 smile moments. But each of the smiles had an Emma Frost quality to them, a kinda "trust me" appeal. I had trouble explaining why I thought these were Emma moments but to me they had that manipulative edge to them. My favorite smile happened in Russia, after the general woke up from his mental sex-dream, he looked at her and Emma's smile was brilliant. I almost laughed in the cinema.  Prepare for the gifs.
 
 

Moment nr. 3 - The Prison

This moments was not only my favorite scene of Emma but also of the entire movie. The scene really showed all the qualities Emma Frost has - playfulness, psychological manipulation, a killer walk and a great line.  

Extra moment - The Curtain

I have no idea how to explain this but her pulling the curtain closed in the club, her face was just so Emma.
 
OK, here were my moments. I hope I gave good explanations and gave something to think about. Comments would be really appreciated as well as ideas for up-coming blogs. And please don't be rude. And thanks for reading!

The Songs of Miranda Frost

For clarity, I've decided to put up a list of songs Miranda sings as a siren and what effects they have.

Siren's Call - Epic Score: Song of Sirens

Lures men towards Miranda no matter what.
  
  

Kati Wolf - What About My Dreams?: Song of Dreams

Shows the hearer their dreams/desires/wishes
  
 
Or the same song only in Hungarian.
  
  

Kelly Rowland - Commander: Song of The Queen

Makes men, who were affected by Siren's Call, follow her commands
  
  
 

Lady Gaga - Judas: Song of Maenad

Causes frenzy in weak minded women.
  
   
 

Sophie Ellis-Bextor feat Junior Caldera - Can't Fight This Feeling: Song of Furies

Removes Miranda from the regular space-time and turns her into a devil-on-the-shoulder, but can only use men, who have heard Siren's Call and can remain undetected for only 10 minutes.
  

Beyonce & Shakira - Beautiful Liar: Song of Doubt

Cause doubt in a single person.
 
  

Theme to Silent Witness: Song of Frost

Creates cold weather, ice, snow, anything cold
  
  
More soon! Thoughts and comments appreciated. If anyone has suggestion for song I'm happy to hear them, but since I'm very picky about my music I won't promise I'll use them
