X-Men: 2nd Coming (SAY WHAAAA)

Hope's powers are that she can whine, comb her hair, and jump on beds, which is remarkable considering she's a football, not a person. Think about it. All she's ever done is be rushed or passed back and forth and intersepted. That's been true. She has been a football. But keep in mind that her char...

X-Men: 2nd Coming (SAY WHAAAA)

-sigh- At lest his death scene was cool. And I do want to see how Logan will take this. (It better not be overly-angsty though. We've got enough of that in MarvelU.) I really wish they'd have Hope's powers friggin' manifest already! Right now it just looks like she's got some mid pre-cog powers or s...

Spider-Man 4.... yeah it's happening.

D: Also why wouldn't they just use Black Cat rather than making up some knock off. Shifting gears I am really excited to see Hathaway will/may be in it. I don't get that either. I mean, the fans all obviously wanted Black Cat, so why did they feel the need to change her? The new name also implies t...

Ew. Ewewewewew. For a second I was all happy about Anne Hathaway being in it. But, what the hell are they thinking? I'm really not to bumed out about them not doing Lizard, but couldn't they have come up with -anything- else?

Well, there is another big X-event comming up this summer. (X-men: Second Comming) But It'll mainly focus on Cable. (I love Cable, so I'm totaly phyched for it) But we might get to see Kurt do -something- interesting. Maybe.

Mary Sue Test

There is a very good Litmus test right here: http://www.katfeete.net/writing/marysue.html

It's the best one I've seen and it's totally universal. And it's not too harsh unlike other tests.

Q: Do they have powers that are considerably more advanced/dangerous than the other characters?

You don't think a chick with gigantic knockers also "fills out" a costume better than a flat one? I hardly find it sexual, maybe some men do but I don't think they're the majority. It's just the way superheroes look. Sometimes the artist goes a little crazy with it, but overall I don't even notice ...

I agree about costumes (Emma Frost makes an olympic sport out of unreasonable clothing) and overly sexualized poses (Greg Land actually uses porn for photo references). But men in comics aren't exactly realistically proportioned either, and they never have been. Maybe body-image is a bigger issue f...

Cool article! I don't think Twilight is as responsible for the increase of female fans as the article says is it though. (I'm not just saying that because I don't personaly like Twilight.)

Gail Simone about female friendships in comics

From the beginning of time, females have been the "damsels in distress" for comics. Unless you're a villainess or Wonder Woman. And even she looks like she's got two soccer balls connected to her upper body. Acctually, Wonder Woman is one of the characters that gets female fans pretty pissed off. W...
