    Default I Appreciate Sage! (National Secretary Day), starring.... ?



    For those of you who live outside of the United States of America, I should explain:

    Today is National Secretary Day and this entire week is National Secretary/Administrative Assistant Week.

    I brought a box of chocolates to the offices for our secretary, and in that same spirit, it's about time that CBR honors Tessa/Sage for all her years of special, personalized, service to Professor Xavier, the X-Men, The Hellfire Club, Excalibur and the Exiles.



    As you may not know, Tessa sacrificed her youth in administrative slavery to Sebastian Shaw on behalf of Charles Xavier. Unlike Jean (ugh!) Grey who hung around the mansion to get nookie from all the boys and give Charles his afternoon shoulder rub, Tessa was forced to wear a bustier and high heels 24/7 in service to her creepy Eighteenth Century-fetishist bosses. Not only did she use her computerized mind and the power of water-cooler gossip to stave off power-plays from Selene and Emma Frost, but she also catered to the whims of such luminaries and executards as Harry Leland and Shinobi Shaw.



    Topics of Discussion.

    Who would you cast as Sage in a movie? For your consideration, I offer the following choices.

    Julia Louise-Dreyfus
    Catherine Zeta-Jones
    Victoria Abril
    Chus Lampraeve
    Dita Von Teese
    Lena Heady

    What computer languages would Sage know in addition to Fortran, Pascal, Visual Basic, HTML and Japanese?

    Does Sage have good reason to hate Charles Xavier?

    Are you tired of Sage being mind-controlled?

    How would you like Diana Fox to perish?

    Sage's new costume -- love it or hate it?

    Who does Sage's hair?

    Who other than CC would you like to see write Sage?

    I consider this a safe-haven for Tessa/Sage fans on CBR. Make your spammy retro-con-deus-ex-machina (Jean Grey defensive) comments in binary code elsewhere. This is a place to post Sage fan-art, poetry, well-wishes, commentary... basically, this is the place to store your Sage thoughts and to honor her for all the entertainment she has provided you.

    She should, in fact be played by ultimate bondage secretary, Maggie Gyllenhal.

    I mean, she worked for Sebastian Shaw at the Hellfire Club. Stuff like this totally happened.

    I was actually a big fan of Sage when she was Tessa. She should change her name back. This new one is lame.

    This thread accepts Sage's TOTAL BEING (except for the Diana Fox malware).

    What a great scene! It presages (pun intended) Tessa's deception: "I merely observe ... and relate what I have seen." Take that you retcon "theorists."

    I hope some loser extra plays Sage and she blows up in the background and nobody would flinch.

    We'll see how it long it lasts. LOL! Anyway, this is a haven for Sage fans. Please take your spammy commentary back to your in-depth dissections of which is the more important Stuart twin, Alistaire or Alysande.

    Seriously, though, I did use to have an interest in Sage. I just think the character has never had the chance to stake her claim in the X-Books since leaving the HFC. Largely because she's been a Claremont only character. I actually wished that she'd been allowed to stay with Excalibur onto CB&MI:13. A book based around a government approved superteam, with a smattering of espionage, aseems a far more suitable place to develop her.
