at this point though the team has decided to stay here for the forseeable future. so at that point, it really IS thier choice. scott just came to offer it to them.

This seems pretty out of character for Jean, in my opinion. If she wanted Warren to stay, she'd try talking instead of telepathy. It seems more in character for her to get pissed that he doesn't want to stay with them and storm off. Then again, her going all LEEEROY JEEEEANKINS at a group of opponents without thinking first is pretty in character for her.

I don't know how to feel about this.


Also, duh Stepford Cuckoos, you're better than the "The Great Jean Grey," she had her telepathy unlocked, like, a day ago.

but she's not using it well. jean is the most powerful telepath, like ever. but she JUST unlocked it. she's using raw power (much like emma stated Rachel uses) Emma was able to fend her off because she does not know the finer points of it.

it's the way i always saw Princess Leia. In the EU it never surprised me that she was as powerful as she was. she's a skywalker and had luke died, she would have been the last hope. She used her powers subltly while in politics, to influence things slightly. She knows the fine motor controls of her powers. she excelled at being a Jedi knight (and has ben stated to be on the fast track to master) because she learned how to do the harder stuff. force leaping, light saber fighting, telekinesis, all easy once she learned how to do the harder stuff.

another case was i think quentin quire (or maybe Hellion) he was able to punch a hole in the side of a building, but could not lift a paper clip, or thread a needle because that took too much precision.

Jean here, is able to control Angel because it's one of her strongest abilities. but can't beat the cuckoos because she does not have full control.

Psylocke's at the school, but she's working through her own trauma and anger issues and according to Uncanny X-Force her attempts at teaching went very badly. (Like, didn't she assault Quentin IIRC?) I don't think she'd be a good fit for Jean right now. The X-Men are kinda running low on telepaths--there's also Chamber, but I don't know how well that would work out either.

It would be a big shock to work with Rachel, definitely, but Rachel's pretty much the only one at the school who's an Omega Level telepath/teacher/time-traveler. She's gone through most of what young!Jean is going through now. It would be nice if Logan, Kitty, et. all, would acknowledge Rachel's existence, at least.

I don't know about that. I mean, the whole school is basically a big Danger Room, they have combat classes, and in the current story arc Logan took a bunch of the kids on a field trip to the Savage Land. The difference is that Logan is focused on giving the kids a safe place where they can learn how to control their powers and learn to be themselves, whereas with Scott, while that's important to him too, he's focused on actively going out in the world and making things better for Mutants. It's the difference between a colonist and a freedom fighter.

Having her constantly smack talking Jean has also done nothing to elevate my opinion of her, particularly since she keeps making fun of a dead woman to said dead woman's friends.

I don't particularly care how snotty Emma is to the other adults in her orbit. But every time a writer tries to sell me on "No, really, Emma's harsh but she cares about the kids!", it rings false given the moments of disregard or petty cruelty that keep cropping up around the kids.

Generally, I just pretend this is a Skrull and GenX-era Emma is still in a tube somewhere, dreaming her terrible vengeance.

There is a really great story out there--it was posted here, but I can't find it--where Rachel is having an extended mental breakdown and lashes out telepathically at Emma by making her appear hugely obese and bloated in her White Queen costume in front of Cyclops and the other X-Men, accusing her of only getting by on her looks and sniping about plastic surgery and basically being a fed-up furious teenager.

And Emma--still in the hugely-obese form--calmly draws Scott towards her for a kiss and informs Rachel that Scott loves her for her mind, not her looks, and that she does understand what she's going through, and that it's okay. And that moment honestly sold me on Emma Frost: selfish, vain, stuck-up, snotty, and at the same time clever, snarky, and ultimately heroic.

You know, for as many nits as I can pick over Astonishing's pacing, roster, plot choices and occasional overuse of the Idiot Ball, at the end of the day, I can at least say I still like most of the characters. Everything I've seen coming out of Uncanny, ANAD, UA, UXF and WatXM makes me just want to throw up my hands and finish with the just not giving a damn about this franchise.

The silver lining is that at least the X-Fans are kind of spoiled for choice right now. I really hope Brian Wood's X-Men is good. Fingers and toes crossed.

I feel so bad for young Warren. He found out what happened to his future self, he wasn't able to go back to the past like he wanted, and one of his teammates was mind-controlling him to stop him from leaving.

Damn, I feel like giving this kid a hug.

Honestly, I agree completely, and I've never been particularly fond of Warren. The kid seriously needs people to start listening to what he wants and helping him. No wonder he chose Cyclops and Magneto.

This. Warren ended up being the mutant money bag, I'm sorry to say. He's rick and pretty which means they only want his money or his body. Sad situation.

I gotta say, after Teen!Jean's incredibly dickish prior influencing of Teen!Angel I really enjoyed seeing her get just completely outclassed by the Stepford Cuckoos, and Warren getting to go off with some people who actually want to protect him properly.

I also loved that "Logan, please." moment with Magneto, everything I've seen posted of Logan in this series has been completely unlikable, so it was fun to see him thrown around. Though that costume on Magneto still does nothing for me.

Emma gave no fucks, none of her team did, I loved this. Adult Scott was pretty good here too.

So has Logan ever thought about killing teenJean? If he wants to murder someone to prevent Xavier's death, Jean would probably work as well as young Scott. Plus you'd save all the broccoli people Dark Phoenix killed.

Or is Scott just that much less sexy to him?

Well, you wouldn't really be saving those broccoli people because without Jean, then Emperor D'ken would've used the M'Kraan Crystal to destroy the universe. Then everyone would've died.


Because everyone lives in the universe.
