Cyclops or Havok....lol she probably won't, but Emma could reignite her character if she had a moment like this.

Yeah! It would be interesting if Emma took this pose!

The problem with the X-Men, at least from the perspective of the lazy creative staff that get assigned to come up with new issues is that most of them do not to be burdened with continuing a relationship that they did not create themselves. We see this over and over again, 2 characters will have a connection develop during a particular creators run and then as titles end and new creators come onto titles and they might not like a particular relationship and kill it off so their own ideas can come to the forefront. Personally I think there should be more relationships in the pages of X-Men titles. People seem to forget that one of the main strengths of the X-Men is that some of the time when things are quiet the interplay between characters can lead to great material. Now its all event, story arc, event with little time taken for the character building moments aside from those that come out in conflict.

I definitely agree with this! The problem with this is that too many different creative teams want to do something different with the characters, despite ignoring what was previously established in the continuity. I feel like we might never get a relationship that lasts long in the X-Men comics as long as the creative teams keep ignoring established continuity to write the characters the way they want them to (which there is nothing wrong with doing something different with the characters as long as they don't take it too far).

A very interesting point. The fact is Scott and Jean (love em or hate em) are classic. Throughout multiple creative teams and editors they existed as a couple to the point that it is still considered to be status quo for a fresh X-Men series. But there will never be another Scott and Jean because there will never be a long term relationship between characters allowed to thrive for as long as they did to where it is significant. And it looks bad considering how many relationships the characters end up in with people in their immediate vicinity as a result, which combined with the X-Men's "family" outlook almost seems incestuous at times.

A problem that also slides into other aspects of X-Men characterizations. Aside from Psylocke and Cyclops there aren't any characters who have had character arcs that have lasted from one pen to another in recent years. Everything is short sighted and very few people take the time to look at where the character came from or where their going and seem to just care about what will look good for the 3 months before the next event.

Rachel Grey/Sublime could've been a big deal (for better or worse) considering her parental issues but even that didn't get very far because the implications of it weren't looked at until the end.

I agree with all this. It seems like there are very few X-Men characters who could sustain titles beyond the main titles (with the possible exceptions of Mystique, Rogue, if you include the X-Men Legacy series and Gambit) and I would like to see all of these X-Men characters stand as their own characters under the right creative team.

This was fun and emotional . Three years after Kitty passed and the team is still feeling it. I loved it because I can relate and it is a realistic take on mourning . Thought about something naughty during Scott and Hank's conversation about Emma being a dictator. Oh and LOL at Logan beating up teenagers. Same ol' Logan giving 0 effs about child endangerment. Great chemistry and characterization.

Thank you so much!!! I just love writing the relationships between these characters!

I prefer the pre-Joe Q douche brigade. They restarted comics and did the anniversary thing but nowhere near as bad as they do now. I grew up with Marvel but wouldn't touch their books with a 39 and a half foot pole now.

I really don't like the fact that Marvel keeps relaunching their titles without letting them run a while longer. That's probably what annoys me about the Marvel NOW titles (although this all started way before Marvel NOW).

My favorite Marvel Couples are:

Spider Man and Mary Jane

Reed and Sue

Kitty and Colossus

Gambit and Rogue

Just like similar to whether or not you prefer DC's pre New 52 universe to their New 52, do you prefer the Marvel Universe before Marvel NOW?

For me, even though I have been enjoying the Hawkeye comics in Marvel NOW, I do prefer some characters before Marvel NOW, like the X-Men. There are some changes in Marvel NOW that I don't care for such as the constant breaking up of fan favorite couples.

I think that Wonder Woman can carry her own film, but as everyone has pointed out, it would all depend on who's writing the character and what actress they hired to play her character.

This does sound silly, unless they make it into a human adaptation, which wouldn't really fly over very well since the movie has animals as the main characters.
