Welcome to the latest (belated) installment of your breath of snark free air!

All X-MEN EDITION!!

Enjoy!

SNARK FREE DEBATE

Cyclops and Emma Frost – Good idea or bad idea?

Since the conclusion of Grant Morrison’s New X-Men run, a good deal of the situations he set up are no longer in play – but one of the more striking examples that IS still in play is the relationship between Cyclops and Emma Frost, and in fact, later writers have decided to play this relationship up even MORE than Morrison did.

So the question is, do you think this pairing is a good idea?

On the one hand, Emma has certainly opened up different sides to Scott Summers’ personality that had been left untapped in the past.

On the other hand, Emma has tried to kill him in the past, and has done some pretty messed up stuff to the X-Men over the years.

On the one hand, Jean Grey gave this relationship her telepathic blessing, by pushing Scott to Emma after Jean’s death, when Scott was probably going to let Emma go, as he was so torn over his wife’s death.

On the other hand, Jean DID just die – so that’s a bit icky.

That’s your topic!

Pick your sides, people!!!

And remember, snark free corner here!

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

Good luck!

NOTE: Dying and coming back is a skill possessed by every X-Men character, so it is not a theme!

Good luck!
