Why did she use her power to turn him gay?
because 95% comic book writers are ass fucking retards with autism.
prove me wrong.
most stable guys in the business are artist. Most insane and psychotic are writers, followed by inkers and colorist after 1995.
She wanted his D, he didn't want her V. She couldn't fathom why, so she just assumed he liked D better, rather than accept that her snatch is where hopes and dreams go to die.
Just ask Scott.
Because she was tired of reading his mind when he didn't know about it and seeing all the lewd degrading acts he was imagining her doing. She got upset because he's own privet thoughts offended her, and like and sjw she took drastic measures to "fix" him. Jean Grey is killing the mutant race.
You obviously don't understand how telepaths work when they are dirty mutants. Prof X taught everyone that it's wrong to read minds, unless you want to. No mutant telepath is just going to stop reading minds because it's impolite.
Inb4 she can't control her powers.
Because All New Jean has no regard for other people's minds or thoughts.
I hope this evil shit doesn't get forgotten like Hope's mind controlling of everyone who touched her.
well that got forgotten because literally everyone new mutant on that page, including Hope, is completely forgotten. Even Idie who they really wanted to push in the Wolverine and the X-Men run
That's all Bendis. He basically thinks psychics should be in everyone's heads all the time.
He did the same thing with Jean in Ultimate Spider-Man. Kinda wonder why no one thought to ask why the fuck she was reading Peter's mind minutes after meeting him in the first place.
Here's where he comes out:
As a gay dude, nothing makes me angrier than this. Just make a new fucking gay mutant. It's easy!
>Marvel in charge of not being awful when it comes to gay stuff
They should just let it go and admit that DC is much better at handling LGBT characters. This whole retcon is just fucking retarded.
Red hair is a trait in all ethnicity and has always been since the dawn of man. There is a tribe in Africa the has so little genetic diversity that every one in the tribe is a red head.
It's bits like that glance from Laura make it look like what most here are saying: Jean is directly interfering in the minds of other almost constantly. She wants a new gay BFF; ergo Bobby is made to be gay. Laura isn't actually keen on Angel but Angel is interested in her; so she makes Laura fall for Warren.
Not even Robinson could make that good. You'd have been better off bringing up the "no marriages" thing that screwed over Batwoman.
When DC messes up it's because of incompetence. When Marvel messes up it's because they dive head first into a mental pit of money and good PR.
But DC has Midnighter so they win by default.
As opposed to how Marvel has handled stuff like Iceman and Hercules, among other recent fuck ups?
DC's got Midnighter, Constantine, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and that's just characters with their own books, there's plenty of support cast too
>But I think you're more...full gay
"Just start sucking dicks. I think you're full gay. Super gay. You're so flaming it hurts. But it's not because it's easier for the audience to understand black and white terms and for us to make a bigger deal about this, it's because you're REALLY gay. People don't change and their tastes don't fluctuate so future you is clearly in the closet."
You mean an entirely new universe? It's not like they went "Hey you know that old guy, married with kids? Actually super gay"
It's a new universe, so I give them a pass if they want to mix stuff up.
>retroactively make the second biggest x-manwhore gay
That's what gets me, aside from Jean very obviously abusing her powers and making him gay.
No, see, having sex with all those women is the surest sign of being gay.
Because Bendis realized that nobody would care or remember anything about his run so he hastily had to put something together that people would HAVE to remember. Because if they didn't and made him have sex with women after making him full gay, then would be an uproar.
Notice that despite how decompressed his storytelling is, he managed to make Bobby full gay and addressed it in less than ~20 total pages without regard to what Bobby actually thinks.
Can someone post the edits to these pages? An anon edited the preview pages with dialogue and close to these. It's sad how predictable Marvel is.
To be fair, most Marvel Psychics have to struggle to keep other peoples' thoughts at bay, without training (and some even with training).
IIRC, this Jean hasn't had any training in that regard, so leave her the fuck alone, you Christless flatscans.
Let me clue you in on something -- writing comic books was not their first choice.
They all wanted to been novelists or screenwriters or playwrights or poets with grants and a Giller Prize.
Instead they washed out and ended up writing disposable stories about immortal magic people in spandex.
You tell me how your mental health fares when your dreams are crushed and replaced with something trite and juvenile that doesn't even pay very well.
>a close up of Cyclops' eyes
>conveying nothing because he wears a fucking visor that obscures his eyes
The writer on this comic should be shot, there's so many things where the artist has been stuck with the most god damn dumb things to draw and done a wonderful job - would that dumb ass "come on... you know..." conversation even have been as good if the artist wasn't capable of entirely conveying the sheer retarded guppy look someone who might say that would have while saying that?
It was me! I was the one who edited them. And I will never get tired of posting them, so my pleasure.
Also, pages 2 and 3 were uncoloured, inked pages at the time that they were posted online, so I coloured them myself so they'd look a bit more authentic. Perhaps not professional quality, but I think they look okay, and I had fun doing it.
I've had so many people tell me that these edits are their official headcanon now, which I find pretty delightful. I've been toying with doing more edits of Bendis's X-books; I've got a load of ideas I really like, but it's such a lengthy process.
Probably because he was the only one not attracted to her. Hank, Scott, Warren, and even Charles himself wanted her. Bobby wanted someone with a soul I guess.
To Jean, thats unforgivable. Especially teen Jean. She has to be the center of attention because everyone loves her and gets really upset every time she dies.
Except for Johns. I would bet my life that writing comics was his first career choice.
I have no idea what paint.net is. I used my trusty old Photoshop version 7 that I've been using for like sixteen years or so now. A reliable old workhorse.
Here's my edit of the first two pages of All-New X-Men #1, which I MAY wind up doing more of if I can find the motivation.
If I, or You, or anyone on this thread, or board even, someday manage to land a comicbook writer job. The comics produced will be among the shittiest pile of crap ever produced.
>mfw that page
Paint.net is a freeware Photoshop clone that doesn't hog your CPU.
Well, that's the benefit of using Photoshop 7; its system requirements are such that I could run it on a machine that's 20 years old, much less a modern computer. And I'm so comfortable with the interface that it's hard to imagine wanting to try to learn something new now!
That is her character. How long did she string Scott and James along?
Its not some freak genetic occurrence; it happened semi-regularly among mongols and their ancestors. With all the raiding and pillaging and conquering into China they and they cousins have done, theirs enough genetics for it to pop up once in a while for the chinese.
More common for the actual mongols, however. Common enough to be known as a family trait.
I can't prove it, obv, but that wasn't me.
Not even sure how that post was reminiscent of me.
Anyway, then answer to this thread is Bendis. He needed some easy controversy because otherwise his run would have ended on an uneventful note in addition to being badly written.
>Not even sure how that post was reminiscent of me.
Really mate? Your more predictable than boco and his self hate.
I know this is beating on a dead horse, but WOW this gay retcon is such fucking bullshit,
Instead of making a new mutant gay character, the writers decided that it's a better idea to just simply make an existing character gay themselves.
And all those women that the existing character hooked up with... Did it really matter and prove that he was really straight? Nope, it was just him trying to simply prove that he's not gay, I guess.
Jesus christ, this was just handled so horribly.
At the very least they could've just made him bi, but instead it had to be "full gay", or whatever the fuck that means. I can't wait until when one of these days they're gonna pull a fucking Bruce Jenner on somebody, maybe it'll be freaking Gambit or Nightcrawler who goes transgender out of nowhere. Just pick a guess at this point since Iceman was probably the least likely to be considered gay.
Oh geez... so they DID make Iceman gay???
You don't understand. Bendis DID create gay characters, 2 at least. But they were completely forgettable and no one cared. He had to make sure his run wasn't forgotten, that years from now people will still talk about his run like they do with Whedon, Gillen, Morrison, and Clearmont. In his early interviews he even said he wanted to be like Clearmont on his run. So what does he do? He pulls something out of his ass last minute to get people to talk about it. No one can undo it, they don't have the balls to and he knows. What's worse is that everyone on Team Bendis will bring it up, so it won't be forgettable either. The best part is Marvel, and Bendis, crushed whatever controversy or butthurt there was with sarcasm and their classic "it's just boys being mad because we are SO progressive" line.
>She hasn't had any training in that regard
There were at least 3 points during All-New X-Men where she was trained with her powers. If you didn't read the book, at least don't make it so obvious
>Randomly murdering anyone who stumbles upon their seemingly completely abandoned ruins
Boy, the mutants sure do make me super sympathetic with the plight of how they're so totally oppressed all the time by damn flatscans, boy howdy!
This is beyond retarded. They have to twist canon around so fucking hard just to maintain the belief that everyone who's gay was born that way and just hid it from everyone including themselves for their entire lives up until the point where they "come out".
They can't dare risk suggesting that it's possible for someone to be straight and then become gay later in life because that's completely impossible and to even suggest it would be horribly offensive.
So Bobby is gay now? For what purpose? He wasn't gay all along, why would they change an already established character to fit their way of thinking when they can make an entirely new character?
He was pulled from an alternate timeline where he was gay. Do you faggots even read comics? These are universes where a 1000 different Spidermen exist and people are taking issue with who or what 616 bobby fucked.
No, he was gay all along.
He was in such deep, intense denial that even he didn't know he was gay and accidentally had sex with several women thinking he was attracted to them when he really wasn't.
>implying that there are any good gay super heroes who aren't midnighter and apollo
Now see that's what really surprised and pissed me off about this whole arc.
Literally hundreds of times before when anybody in the Marvel universe has dealt with time travel bullshit it always turns out that it was just another universe, because you can't actually travel back in time without it affecting the current timeline. The second any change is made that means it's a different timeline.
The fact that NOBODY remembers being brought to the future should indicate that these aren't the original X-Men. I mean for fucks sake Jean has powers that she wouldn't have for years, but they just handwaved all that bullshit away because of reasons.
And like everyone before me, it's soooooooo fucking obvious she's mind controlling people whenever she feels like it.
Also Bobby is so fucking obviously Bi that it hurts. Christ sake why isn't every character in Marvel Bi just so we can stop having people wonder about that shit. Just have Reed Richards make a Bi-The-Way-Ray and boom, no more problems. I can totally imagine Bullseye blowing his load perfectly into a trash can while thinkin' about Daredevil.
They made it a point in the story to show it was the original past versions of the O5. When Teen Scott died, Old Scott blipped out of existence. Everything can literally be hand waved as "they were mind wiped and returned" if they ever plan on returning them. You can even chalk up Old bobby being gay simple to "young bobby came out early so old bobby realized he was gay" side effect bullshit. You can mind wipe teen Bobby and return him to the past, but that won't change old Bobby from not being gay.
The only bullshit is they would be a year older if they went back.
It's fucking Bendis, what he says goes and if he wants something, he will get it.
