For those who want THE ISSUE, I’ve uploaded it here! I’m only going to upload it once, so please don’t ask me for other links if this one runs out…
….I still hate everything. UGH.
Or if you don’t want to download the whole thing, it’s summed up here on Comics Alliance.
Yeahhh he has been pushed aside often enough for me to notice, too. And I don’t read to many of the comics..so. u__u This makes the whole interview unsurprising but I couldn’t help but feel disappointed and angry anyway because there’s ALWAYS room for Charles Xavier. He has room to grow, too. It’s not Charles Xavier that has lost his purpose, I’m sure he’s got stuff he can do other than wipe Scott’s ass all the time, but that Marvel don’t know what they can do with him. When the answer is really limitless. : (
LE SIGH. I’m just hoping that whatever XMFC2 chooses to be, Charles will remain as a large and central part of it. I know they said they will focus on the relationship between the two, but with Marvel, it’s really hard to rely on them these days. :T
As a snarky postscript to my Professor X post, I might speculate that the writers killed Xavier off because they noticed Scott was dull as dirt and felt they needed to develop him somehow, and he’s too boring to be anything but a dad figure, so they had to give Professor X the chop to let Scott move into the paternalistic papa leader spot. :P
(Apologies to anyone who loves Scott, I’ve just never seen anything interesting done with him. I feel the same way about Jean Grey even though I desperately wanted to love her; Dark Phoenix was the storyline that got me reading X-Men and I imprinted on comic book redheads with my very first comic book purchase of the Mary Wilshire-drawn Red Sonja. But they’ve just never seemed to have much character beyond being the attractive boy-n-girl who default to each other, the X-Men prom king and queen. I’m sure it just depends who’s writing them. Anyway…)
Very much seconding the wish about Charles in XMFC2 (what are we going to call that? XMDOFP? XM:DFP?) And while I’m fantasizing, if it’s Days of Future Past and we see multiple alternate universe timelines, could we have one timeline where Charles and Erik are obviously a couple? COME ON FILMMAKERS. JUST ONE KISS. We know the actors are chafing to do it!
