Oops~ sometimes its magnetism does that *shrug* bawnjawrno new frieend~
Exactly!!!! The amount of L’Oreal jokes that have been made since I fell in love with him have been ridiculous. Every time I’m watching the Animated Series or reading any pre-recent-Uncanny-X-Men (I have to say X-Men sometimes because I don’t want to mentally mix it up with Uncanny Avengers, but that’s a whole ‘nother bag of bitchy worms), The Hair is just so…wow, ~ooh aah~ with little imagined anime sparkles surrounding it. OMG I read Not a Hero and I was just like what the butt is that mane. He should’ve shaved it a la Stormhawk or something crazy. (yes anything is better than John Malkovich looking Baldneto; I like John Malkovich, but…no)
DUDE SHE DOES. I mean, I’m not even gonna really hardcore get into female costumes, but Magik is a close-range fighter in most of what I’ve seen her in, so having her whole belly exposed but with insane shoulder padding is just…dumb. Like, the exposed legs, whatever, but going for the guts is logical! That’s what Emma’s costume reminds me of! Also, the black is just weird, and just…what part of it even…I don’t even. Scott’s the only one who looks any cooler now (even though the “Daddy’s Home” advertisement has destroyed any ability I may have had to take him seriously)
That would be completely justified. Which I’m totally good with because, I mean, Scott killed his husband, I’m glad he’s giving him that bitch slap (which I’m assuming will be an actual thing if the previews for the upcoming issues are anything to go by [but then that may be for the benefit of him pretending to be a traitor, who knows]). I’d like to think this is Charles related and not just “I do the thing because I have the powah
of Grey Skull“(oh gods be good, no, that must be awful @-@) I just…there are certain aspects you can change when doing a redesign, but they become known by certain things in their designs. With Mags, I always associate him with the red/purple and his helmet. Without the helmet, he would pretty much be completely different. I know ,say, Emma gets new outfits all the time, but they tend to have similar elements so you can identify her. If you’re gonna massively change it, justify it, like you said. Exactly. I mean, I’d personally like a touch more than “well, I felt like it” because that would feel like a cop out and not…dramatic enough to be something Mags would say. I need a speech about clean slates and the wiping of color being representative of that and the baldness being in honor of Charles or the white being because he feels empty without him or some shit like that, just something. Also, his hair needs to come back.
Magnetism indeed. Greeterings!
Haha, yes. One of my theories was that I made fun of my BB!Charles too much when I said IC that I was an 82-year-old man with shampoo-commercial worthy hair and his was gone when he was about thirty. So Bendis decided to reap vengeance upon my arrogance by taking the one thing I deemed more important than my power: My hair.
Yes to all of that. Emma’s trademark is her white clothing, because it’s super posh and so is she, even if she’s no longer The White Queen. Magik’s costume is totally clunky where she would need it to be sleek and useful, and Mags apparently got switched to white because ‘The General’ was such a popular look. Which, hot damn, that was an amazing costume. But 1) it was an alternate universe and 2) he was decked out in armor, which was still very, very much Magneto. And then, yeah, that “Daddy’s Home” is what I remember as an iconic line from Ultimates that Magneto used when he got his memory back and started raining hell down upon the people who opposed him, so Scott saying it is really underwhelming, because the X-Men don’t work like that. Which I think is really frustrating for Mags, because Scott’s running his operation like Mags would/did, except he’s doing it all wrong. He can’t inspire the same fear that Mags did, because the world knows he’s still playing by X-Rules, and that’s just dumb.
Ah, see, I’m not a Cherik fan, but I’ll never argue that Charles is the most important person in Erik’s life. They’re my BroTP 5Eva. And considering he’s the one that brought him to Utopia to help him against Scott, there’s probably a TON of survivor’s guilt there, coupled with the fact that Charles was killed right in front of him by a guy they both consider something of a son. I think Mags probably has a lot of mixed feelings about it (because look what Wanda did, and he forgave her [plus I’m pretty sure he knows no one is as upset about it as Scott himself is]), but mostly I feel like it’s frustration that Scott isn’t planning things well, harbored outrage that he murdered Charles, swallowed pride due to being treated like a damn lackey since he got to Utopia to prove he was willing to play by their rules, and huge rage that Scott, willing or not, took his abilities away. Plus whenever they rescue new mutants, they run instead of fight, which is the opposite of what Mags has almost always done.
He’s got a lot of water boiling under his helmet right now, methinks. I’m not sure I like how he’s being written considering all of it. I can’t tell if he’s putting on a smile until he’s got the upperhand, or if he’s legit trying to enjoy himself and be a good member of the team.
Either way, yeah, he needs to grow his hair back.
