salinea: Magneto going *?* (wtf)

(About 3 pages in all from X-Men regenesis)

While I still find that whole caveman metaphor thingy to be one of the most painfully stupid thing I've ever seen - that was a nice issue finally seeing everyone try to decide what to chose.

LOL Hank. (if only you didn't go to the side that resurrected the X-Force right after Scott disbanded it, y'know. You'd be better starting a third side, just saying >_>)

Much as I do not like those two together, I thought that was a pretty cute sequence. :)

Well, I dunno, but anything with the X-kids has my attention! Speaking of which:

(There was also a nice sequence between Laurie & Hope, dealing with the aftermath of Schism, but it's a bit too long for me to post).

was it ever revealed what he did with the rogue/gambit sex tape? someone should retcon that shit asap.

to me, it's more about magneto (whom i like whenever he's interacting with anyone not rogue - because when he's interacting with rogue, i can't forget what came prior) than the pairing. it's imbuing the character with a creepy factor he could do without.

so it will always be an ew, no for me until they at least retcon the sex tape, disgraceful as the bashing is. it just really affects the way i see magneto.

i am in disadvantage because i did a lot of back reading in the past 6 months, so everything is fresh and recent in my mind, sweet oblivion is kinda far away unless someone pulls a xorn and is ALL NO, LOOK, IT WAS ALL LIES, FORGET.

xavier mentioning he had feelings for jean haunts him to this day, this sort of stuff sticks. lucky for mags he's hotter and rogue isn't a teen/his pupil.

Does it?

you mean among fans? from my personal fandom experience (so ymmv)? yes. it's always listed somewhere when people talk about the character's shady-ness. (same for the danger room, even though that was already retconned).

there's a should-quentin-be-revealed-as-jean's-son thread over at the CBR forums right now and most of the paternity guesses are logan and xavier. it's just a joke, ofc, but yeah. no forgetting any time soon.

Perhaps there are a lot of Xorn brothers out there *nods wisely*

i like the theory that current mags is a new and improved mags brought back by wanda, personally. pure as driven snow.

aw i find them hilarious, tbh, but i see exactly where you're coming from and don't blame you.

(Can't remember - did Carey bring it up in all those Xavier focussed issues of Legacy?)

no, thank the almighty lord. he was already being made a mockery of at the time with that whole thing where scott basically told him to sit down and and shut up, no need to pile on imo!!

lol yeah, having a tape of a young lady of your acquaintance having sex is nothing. not creepy at all.

They were at his abandoned base, he has cameras there or something, he sees that they're there, he goes and leaves (and BTW, all they're doing at the moment Mags looks at them is hugging with their clothes on).

What's the creepy part? That he has cameras at his base so he can know what's going on? It's not like he knew they were going to be there and installed them so he could catch some nookie.

What's the creepy part?

that he still has it on tape when he knew what was going on because he saw it starting. it's not like rogue is a complete stranger to him.

i would probably not find it as creepy if i had no prior knowledge of magneto's interest in her, but context makes it uncomfortable to me, and it's really hard to shake it off.

everything that happened while he was erik the red was a pile of do-not-want, tbqh. i regret having read it all. to think i only went into it because of joseph, blah.

What do you mean he still has it on tape? It was probably a live recording.

And he's not even looking at it; the panel where we see the screen he's focusing on the Erik helmet.

somehow i didn't interpret it like it was a live recording in my first (and only) reading, but if that's the case and i got it wrong, then i'm very pleased and relieved tbh.

After Genosha was trashed three times and his family crippled and scattered, I really can't see that tape being one of his priorities.

when was there a sex tape?

when magneto was wearing that red devil costume. trial of gambit, i think?

he watched rogue sexing gambit in a cave, they were all chained and stuff, then he's seen watching it on tv.

he was horrible in many other ways in those issues, it's just that this one stuck with me as very sexual-predator-creepy and it grosses me out.

Are you referring to this scene?

I think it's a real reach to think he was doing anything sexual with the tape. He's surprised the X-Men are there, realizes he can use the information he has against Gambit, puts the helmet on, and leaves.

i'm not, tho. it just makes me incredibly uncomfortable that he has it at all.

What got me was the laughing scene. Are they supposed to be laughing? Talking really quietly? Can they show any actual emotion?

But I guess that's an art thing more than a character thing.

the art is really not my cuppa, but i didn't see real humor in the exchange, at least not "deadpanning then laughing out loud for two wordless panels"-worthy humor, so it fell flat for me.

i think subtle chuckling would have been better.

Yea the laughing thing fell flat for me. The expressions and actions needed to be more exaggerated. Cause at this point it doesn't really look like "bursting out laughing".

But this artist really needs to work on expressions and movement, there's no energy or movement in this art.

Magneto has previously destroyed video images of his own wife during a funk. I seriously doubt a sex tape would last very long before being erased.
