Pretty, Fizzy Paradise

I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Thursday, May 28, 2009


My computer rebooted and I lost a good chunk of my meme answers. Which means you have one more day to chime in if you want. I'm sad and annoyed. :-(

Oh well, it happens.

As a consolation, I'm posting this image of poor Ororo's bridesmaid dress at Scott and Jean's wedding. (X-Men #30).

I mean, really. That's just a mean thing to do to your best female friend, Jean.

Then again, it could always be worse, consider poor Rachel.

See, if for whatever reason, I was attending my parents' wedding ceremony? I wouldn't forget my dress at home. I'm just sayin'.

Okay, now I feel better. :-)

    Good Lord, I'd forgotten those bridesmaid dresses were so terrible. THREE colors on one dress? Ugh. Jean must be really insecure to make sure they all look so hideous.

    As for Rachel's "dress," the only explanation I can come up with is my sister's long-standing belief that she's got a ridiculously disturbing, cosmic-sized Electra Complex. And we're not talking about sai-wielding ninja ladies here.

    Maybe it's a secondary mutation?

    Well, the way Claremont wrote Rachel in scenes with Emma and Madeleine certainly doesn't help.

    I figure it either has to be a secondary mutation or his subconscious is just that ridiculously sexy. The recent Fraction issue where his brain is nothing but beautiful women in a hotel seems lackluster compared to what has to be actually going on to mesmerize every freakin' telepath he meets. Maybe underneath all the battle strategies and lists of things to do, he's got an inner monologue going on that would make Susannah Breslin blush.

    I really hope it's not a secondary mutation. There's not a lot of evil telepaths in the Marvel U but I imagine being stalker-bait to telepaths would have a significant downside, scorching hotness of female X-Men telepaths aside. Didn't the Shadow King or someone really screw up Scott's head just before Morrison's run? He mentions it but I've got big gaps in my X-Men reading so I've never been too clear on that point.

    I don't know if there was a Shadow King thing (I'd been away from x-comics for a long time and am only starting to catch up.) There was a whole death/possession by Apocalypse thing, for certain.

    I could still see it being a secondary mutation. His primary mutation tends to suck after all. It'd be just his luck to end up with a secondary mutation that's even worse. :-) Man can't catch a break.

    Ooh, I have an idea! A comic book Go Fug Yourself would be so, so awesome.

    Aside from the ghastly fashion choices, does Rachel seem even more anatomically improbable than usual there, or is it just me?

    All I can say is that those bows on Rachel's dress must be made from adamantium...or at least titanium strength starch in order to hold THOSE baby's back.

    As bridesmaids' dresses go, that's downright chic. The sleeves aren't even poofy!
