Greetings True Believers!

I have a response to Avengers: Children's Crusade #6 which came out today.

You'll want to check out Colonel Green's post if you haven't been following the series.


CG's post.

Well, Wanda. What about these folks?

Scans are from New X-Men and Decimation: Generation M.

Is Wanda going to wiggle her nose and bring them back? Is Iron Lad going to pop into the time-stream and bring them back?

Somehow I doubt it.

Let Logan gut her or put her in a little power-controlling box where she can re-power mutants one by one. Other then that, she never gets to use her powers again.

But that's not going to happen. I know and understand why but I wanted to voice a feeling that came up after reading CC #6 today.

I think that that was pretty straight up an Evil Emma situation. Taking advantage of the fact that a man you like and his wife are drifting apart as an opportunity to sleep with him isn't really a morally gray area. Even given the fact that Scott was, to degree, reciprocating the affection doesn't change the fact that, when the chips were down, she tried to sleep with him while he was married, without his wife's knowledge or consent. Just because he said no doesn't change that.

You know, I'm really sick of a culture that we live in where the mistress is blamed for the affair. It takes TWO PEOPLE to cheat. Men are not weakling, they do not lose control of their bodies when around sexy women. Scott had a relationship with Emma out of his OWN VOLITION. She didn't trick him, she didn't use her mind powers on him.
If a husband has it in him to cheat in the first place, what makes you think that he would not eventually cheat anyways?

I'm just really sick of people blaming the women when marriages go bad.

I wasn't talking about the psychic affair. I was talking about the real life attempt by Emma to sleep with Scott in Toyko. She tried to sleep with him on the physical plane and he said no.

The man definitely shares equal blame for the psychic affair, yeah. There's no disputing that. Scott cheated on Jean. Arguably, he's in a worse position because he directly betrayed someone he loved. I was arguing that Emma's attempt to sleep with him was definitely not a morally reprehensible act, not matter how much he and his wife were drifting. I wasn't trying absolve Scott of his guilt, I was attempting to implicate Emma for hers.

What made it a lot worse from Emma's side of the affair was that she was supposed to be helping Scott FIX his marriage and then took advantage of her position, her powers, and Scott's doubt and vulnarability (though he is still partially to blame). Why is she still practicing psychiatry again?

IIRC the married Jean also made a pass at Wolverine (within sight of Scott) in an attempt to make Scott jealous because Jean knew they were drifting apart. Logan sensed this and turned her down.

Exactly why they needed couples therapy conducted by someone who wasn't a supervillain.
