@ageofhurricane: Fraction was definitely guilty of misusing the term "omega", but he was the first writer to use the term "Omega telepath", which is so contrived.

I think Fraction was the first writer to use the term "Omega Level Telepath" during his Uncanny run when Emma was calling out mystique on trying to impersonate Xavior (Which just added more fuel to the fire of confusion). I would say that Psy is probably a top tier telepath, but not mutant. I read somewhere that in order to be classified as an omega level mutant, you have to have demonstrated the ability to manipulate matter or alter reality or some extremely earth bending quirk. That might be why most telepaths who have been mentioned as "Omega level mutants" have come into contact and were even able to control the Pheonix force.

@thegreyoutcastx: Honestly, I think Kieron Gillen is the only writer at Marvel right now that could do Nate justice. We know he loves exploring the Summers/Grey orgins and mythos based off of his Uncanny run. Have Nate join Young Avengers!...Actually who do I need to contact to make that happen...?

Something seems very passive aggressive about this, on Fox's part. This movie better be a masterpiece...

It's improved greatly since issue 5 and is starting to head into Remender's UXF epicness territory. It just took a bit of time to warm up and having Coipel and Acuna on art has not hurt.

I don't think it was a horrible film, it could have been whole lot worse, but witht that said...It didn't feel like a natural follow up to the other two films before it, there were a lot of dropped and or underdeveloped plot points, a lot of emotional beats weren't played...And why the hell would they kill off Scott Summers 20mins into the damn movie!!! That is where the movie skidded off the rails, sucks that it pretty much started the film. Overall, it seemed as though the creators threw together a bunch of ideas and tried to make them seamless. I really think it all goes back to the series veering too far from the comics basic groundwork. Singer started the series with his own vision, a bit different from the comics, but it was his. Ratner tried to follow the way he thought Singer's flow was going, but he failed and made an unfocused mess of a movie.

At least they were smart enough to "try" and use Joss Whedon's first Astonishing arc to be the main conflict in the film.

@CerealKiller: Agreed

She is a lot more "conservative" these days then she used to be.

At the end of the day, the way she dresses is part of her character. Emma is one of the few female characters in comics who very consciously dresses and looks the way she does(She got the plastic surgery done, she puts on the clothes, she dyes her hair, she works out.) and justifies it... Now that's not to say that some artist don't have a field day with her "assets" ,but it's all justifiable based on her character.

@JohnnyGat: Agreed. Frenzy and Scott could be interesting, especially since Scott is becoming even more aggressive.

I'm really scared of the way Bendis is writing Emma...Any good writer would relish the chance to give Emma the bitchiest, wittiest, most sophiscated lines they could think of; Bendis would rather have her say "Thanks for the bust out fellas..."? Maybe it was a late night when he was writing her dialogue, I'll try and give him another chance, but I'm worried.
