I started reading the X-Men in the mid 90's, just before Gen X was launched. So I voted for that Emma. I liked her because she was a self-made higly driven woman who lived by her own terms. While she certainly had values, she wasn't above getting her hands dirty if circumstances called for it. She's smart, feminine, pragmatic and unsentimental. She had demons and definetly not a people person but she still tried to do the write thing. She had a razzor sharp tongue which she used normally a) to keep people at bay and from getting hurt or b) to bring order.
