Usually when the two leading ladies of the X-Men, Emma Frost and Jean Grey, are pitted against each other, the White Queen is quickly labeled as the villain. It's understandable since she was once a villain and she did terrible stuff against the team of mutants she now calls home. Still, people forget that although Jean was once the sweet and innocent Marvel Girl, the first X-Woman has done her share of damage to the X-Men as Phoenix.
Both ladies have been on both sides of the battle field and both ladies seem to hold a rivalry that will hold for a very long time. Even now that one of them is "gone" the other still fights for trust and attention. Cyclops and Wolverine have both put their trust on Emma like they once did on Jean and the rest of the X-Men have allowed to be led by this queen, even if they are not too keen on her presence. Anyways, it always seems like between Emma and Jean, Jean is always the victim but what about Emma? I know I shouldn't be defending the cold woman since I was one of the many people who "boo-ed her off the stage" when she and Scott began dating. Yet she has been able to grow on me.
If we think about it, Emma is the one who suffers more hardship because she lives under the shadow of a great woman. Which is why I came up with the drawing below:
Tell me what you think! Is it strange to see Emma be the vulnerable one while Jean takes the credit for the villain?
