A page posted from GOD LOVES MAN KILLS, Kitty Pryde said Nightcrawler had a right to be bitter over his appearance, but isn't. I'm not sure how true that is. Kurt Wagner can be VERY bitter over his appearance, just not all the time.
Five years back, I said some characters have a "more woobie than thou" attitude. They are jerks to characters who act/believe/think in a certain way, when they themselves have more of a right to act/believe/think that way, but don't. Basically, they *should* be sympathetic to the other characters, but aren't.

The origins of this posting came about when I saw this image on e-bay

I thought that this was a lovely sketch-card of Aurora and Northstar by an artist named Sara Richard.



and wanted to see more of her work...

When I saw THESE images I knew I had a new artist to keep an eye on )

were Young Justice and Generation X. And obviously with the PAD rule, YJ is a no-no but I'd like to share some of my favorite moments from Gen X early on in the run [Issues 1-20] as I've noticed there aren't a lot of posts in the tag for it. This series is also the reason I went from hating the character of Jubilee to loving her as a kid.

In looking over why certain male and female characters are the least favorite, I think I see the common link. These characters have a "more woobie than thou" attitude. They are jerks to characters who act/believe/think in a certain way, when they themselves have more of a right to act/believe/think that way, but don't. Basically, they *should* be sympathetic to the other characters, but aren't.
Batman is a prime example. "I saw my parents murdered right in front of me, so shut up with your emo prattle about using your powers to make the world a better place, but said powers always keeping you separate from that world."

Making the pick on my favourite male character was probably a little easier for me than picking a female favourite. There's lots of characters I love, but only one I love and would love to ding round the earhole as well, which elevates this character to a special place in my heart.

I'm talking about Jonothon Evan Starsmore. Or as he's otherwise known, Chamber.

Scans from Generation X issues 1, 4, 10, 11, 41, 42, 44, 50 and Marvel Icons: Chamber #2.

Back in the 1998 Generation X Annual, the Gen X kids came into conflict with the granddaddy of all vampires - Dracula. (Possibly because Dracula was pissed at Chamber for being a descendant of his old enemy, Apocalypse, but that's another story entirely.) Anyway, they didn't fare great - Chamber was plagued by nightmarish visions, Paige gets stalked in her underwear (just so you know it really is a Dracula story, presumably) and Jubilee, well, it wasn't her finest hour...

This might possibly prove to be relevant.

Prompted by [personal profile] darkblade's comments here about Utopia going against the X-men's fundimental beliefs, I was reminded of these scans, which I originally posted on S_D 1.0. In which Chamber nicely summarizes that, while Xavier's dream might be for peaceful co-existence between humans or mutants, the X-men have never actually tried it.

I haven't got a lot of Thanksgiving related scans, but I did dig up this from Generation X #23 which I originally posted back on Scans_Daily 1.0, in which Paige invites Jono back home to the Guthrie's for Thanksgiving.

It carries all the vital ingredients for a Thanksgiving story - namely arguments, angst, fallings out, people (well, okay, Jono) making huge asses of themselves and unnecessary drama.

Perfect!



Isn't young love grand? )

I'm feeling random, so I'm throwing this out there. Why don't we make a theme week of it? We've had One Perfect Moment, so why not the F-YEAH moments - the moments that just make you want punch your fist in the air and shout out a victory yell?

So, I'm declaring it F-YEAH! Week.

If I have a perfect moment, this one be one of them. One of those air punching moments and a "oh hells yes!" It's not anything personal against Warren, a character I rather like, but that this moment seemed a perfect response to Chuck Austen's particular direction in personal relationships and a rebuttal to the whole "X-men as family" ethos, which stopped being true some time in the early nineties. Or maybe it's just the art that makes this so... satisfying.

I was going to repost the scans of Chamber vs Omega Red from Generation X #11 since they were requested, but while I was trawling through the scans I decided to pad the post out some. Some, I present to you the combat stylings of Jonothon Starsmore. Not the world's greatest master tactician, but smart enough to realise that when you're a mutant with powers, there's no reason why that can't be combined with hittting-people-with-blunt-objects-fu.

Under the cut, a selection of scans from Generation X #11, #21, #61, Uncanny X-men Annual 2001, Icons: Chamber #3 and New Warriors #9.
