Uncanny X-men #2 PREVIEW - Beautiful Women Freaking The Fuck Out

As someone who is often attracted, for better or worse (mostly worse), to beautiful women, there's a certain range of emotions to seeing them freak the fuck out. If they happen to be a woman who just agreed to dress up like Starfire and claim she's sad about not being able to sunbathe nude, you feel sympathy. If they happen to be a woman that boned your best friend and took it up the ass for a guy that paid her cable bill, you feel positively gleeful. The same happens in a comic book.

Enter Emma Frost, the bearer of Marvel's ultimate set of tits and someone who can bust balls in the best and worst possible ways. She recently suffered the kind of downfall usually reserved for athletes that followed OJ Simpson's career path. She went from second-in-command at the X-men and fuck buddy to Cyclops to a wanted fugitive who had broken up with Cyclops AND fucked her powers up. It's more than just a lousy day at the office. It's the kind of shit that drives most people crazy. So if anyone is entitled to freak the fuck out, it's her. And wouldn't you know it? That's just what she does in the latest preview of Uncanny X-men #2, which was released by Newsarama earlier today!


It's a beautiful moment and not just because Emma hasn't lost her fondness of showing off her rack. She actually takes some time to reflect on what she's done recently. She also is the first to actually point out that it was Tony fucking Stark who was responsible for the Phoenix Five. Yet his ass never got thrown in jail. Charles Xavier never blamed him for the shit that happened. So for once the hot blond is the smart one and I say fuck yeah! In addition, she reflects on her relationship with Cyclops and how it actually did involve love for more than just the power of Cyclops's penis. That's something that has been lost since the Matt Fraction era of Uncanny X-men. Yet she also acknowledges that he never truly got over Jean Grey. So maybe that will open the door to some nice moments with All New X-men. Who knows? Either way, I intend to be as prepared as I am drunk when this comes out to craft my review! Nuff said!

  1. I'm excited to see how this pans out. Never been a Scott/Emma fan but this seems like it's going to be deep. It feels like this book is catering specifically to those fans that were scorned because of AvX, showing that Cyclops was right, and that Tony Stark was wrong, I like it.

    1. Speaking as one of the fans scorned by AvX, I can't say this book is catering to much. It's basically taking on a loose end in the Cyclops/Emma relationship, which Bendis said outright is done. If Emma Frost is the only one who sees that Tony Stark was responsible for the Phoenix going crazy, then Marvel is more fucked than she'll ever be.

    Me too #1 was amazing and this preview is awesome. I like how we are beginning to see the true aftermath of AVX concerning Cyclops and Emma and what they went through being possessed by the Pheonix and how it changed them

    1. Thanks for the comment! I too am eager to see how Cyclops and Emma function now that they won't be seeing each other naked on a regular basis. It's sure to be awkward, but that's part of the fun!
