TFW you check out Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men Omnibus and it's $170. Anything over a hundred is bull**** afaic. Do I look like Bill Gates?

Well I guess it makes sense to separate her powers from Jean Grey since back in the day she was just a villainous Jean, and Emma's personality lends itself to just straight up harming people more than Jean's does. But it's still kinda stupid and forced.
Dude. She can become a living piece of bling, walk straight through gunfire, and crush your windpipe. That's, like, the greatest thing ever, unlike Jean Grey and Xavier, who are both rendered hilariously useless whenever a psychic-resistant bad guy appears (I swear, every five seconds it's "MY MIIIIIND!" with those losers).

Yeah, its $91 on Amazon.. Saving nearly $20 is totally worth the 2 week wait, but I'm not going to pick it up anytime soon, I just have too much other stuff to get through atm. I'll be sure to grab it if I find out it's going out of print.

I'm a little confused though, I watched a couple reviews and they said it starts at issue #114. Do they just totally drop the story from whatever was prior and be like yeah so this is XMen now? I've never understand how they weave different arcs into superhero comics.

Maybe I just need to reread the series and see the idea implemented, but it really is a random power for a psychic.

Amazon can be surprising with meeting other site's deals, but it never beats InStockTrades. You'll probably be fine. I'm sure the reason I ordered off that site was because I got the same price and that was a year ago. You probably don't need to worry about ordering it right the **** now... of course I did provide that link to an online browser version. Eh? Eh?

Yes that's exactly what happened. That **** happens a lot. Just deal with it. Companies like their #1 issues and new series names. It's just a thing to boost sales and means nothing. I think that it took off from X-Men, which was a series started in the early 90s apart from Uncanny X-Men because X-Men was hot **** and the speculator boom was in full swing and X-Men was being drawn by Jim Lee who was one of the 90s god artists. You don't even need to know what happened in the issue before. In effect it's an entirely new series.

But competing against Emma Frost is a losing proposition for... like, everyone? She dealt with an anti-mutant mob by giving them all orgasms. How do you top that? And I'm not sure if that was in Grant Morrison's series but I highly suspect it was because Grant Morrison.

God damn it I'm reading Berserk but now I want to reread New X-Men. Why do they both have to be so long.
I knew Hawk was right about your dick!

Yeah, I saw the link, but the pages don't fit on one screen and it's ANNOYING.

Also, thanks for explaining, I don't really mind that I guess, it's just confusing as hell when trying to start a series.

I mean you get what you paid for, which is nothing. It's still a valuable tool for checking out a series.

Play as her in X-Men Legends, and you'll see how well it works.
