Thinking

You know what I miss? Robot duplicates. I love robot duplicates.

Of course, they lose some of their menace now that EMT devices are more easy to obtain, but still, there's something about a robot duplicate that just fills me with a sense of nostalgia.

It's like clones, but without the ick factor. :-P (Because clones inevitably sleep with your boyfriend/girlfriend which makes for genetic awkwardness. Almost no one sleeps with your robot duplicate.)

Unless your name is Hank Pym, it's really hard to convolute your family tree with robots. :-)

    Really? I think Wanda manages it pretty well. Though they were Hank Pym's robots.

    I love clones... I love non-Joseph clones. It's not his fault, though. It just hurt too much every time I tried to read those comics. I'd actually like to see a Joseph revival, because that whole family is just awesome. Nate Grey reconstituted himself, why couldn't Joseph?

    Yep, already covered. :-)

    I love Joseph! He was adorable, and much better with Rogue than Gambit, IMO. :-P

    He seemed really boring, from what I saw, which wasn't much. I've always thought Gambit was reasonably nice to Rogue, and Rogue was a jerk back. I'd prefer a well written Rogue replacement. But a "Good"Erik/Joseph meeting would be so great.

    (did any of those thoughts connect? I'm going to bed)

    Eh, gotta disagree with you there. Joseph may have been bland, but Gambit was outright manipulative and an asshole most of the time.

    Cartoon-Gambit wasn't as bad, but comic one? Rogue deserved a lot better, IMO. :-)
