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.

Where did that Emma go?

Really? Because when I read that scene, I thought Emma was going 'No matter what you do or say, your daddy is with ME and not your mother, ha ha', although admittedly I have not seen that scene in ages.

That scene also came after Emma called Rachel a cow and said she should have been never been born, so it's hard to give her credit there.

Really? Aw man, and I totally (mis)remembered that as one of my favourite moments in comics. :(

Actually, I think you're fine. Here's the scene in question, from Uncanny X-Men #452 (1, 2, 3). I really can't see how it could be read as Emma bragging about being with Scott instead of Jean and no one calls anyone a cow who shouldn't have been born before, during or after the fight (...that happened in Uncanny X-Men #444 - 1, 2). ;)

You're awesome! But your image links pull up a 403 Forbidden error.

Huh, that's weird, they work for me. Try this. Hope that works and if not let me know and I'll try something else. :)
