Isn't Amara rich, too? She's a princess.
Not one of these New Mutants is a college graduate. It's safe to assume that, being 17 when she joined, Dani has some college level education from Xaviers, but that's about it. Bobby was 13 when he joined. At most, he's got a highschool degree. Let's also not forget that, after Fall of the Mutants, their education was spotty at best. Magneto took over and was doing a piss poor job. Then, Cable came in and the only school any of them went to was the school of hard knocks.Using his (presumable) college education
1. Where would the fun be then? Heroes who have everything come to them so easily are boring. Comics feed off of stuff that's hard. It builds drama and character. Peter Parker has made a helluva comic career of having bad luck and a small bank account.connections to get himself a high paying job instead of slumming through want ads for jobs
Bobby's skin color is always up for debate, as it changes from issue to issue. His dad's dark, but his mom is white - both are Brazilian. Either way.... I'm pretty sure that he'd find a job in the want ads as well as the next guy. It's not 1950. People of color do work. Bobby's biggest "defect" is his big mouth, which can get him into trouble.that would probably refuse to hire him because of his skin colour doesn't seem very nice or reasonable.
That's overstating it. Could she be getting a kick out of keeping Bobby on a tight leash? Sure. then again, being older than him, maybe she sees him as being more of a littler brother type who needs to be taught a thing or two about control and self-restraint. Bobby has impulse control issues. He's very much the Johnny Storm of the team. Dani's just doing her job as their Sue. Her getting a kick out of watching him be normal is just an added bonus. Trust me. I grew up around guys like Bobby, who couldn't find their way around life without their trust funds. A little reality check isn's such a bad thing.I think she's getting some sort of cheap sexual thrill from trying to force Bobby to "slum it up" or take jobs where he is subservient to others.
Realty check #2. Bobby hits on anything in a skirt. Dani probably sees that as Bobby being Bobby. I doubt that she has much interest in him anyway. She's had her hands full with Sam and Nate these past few years. Bobby isn't even on her radar.Or perhaps it's punishment for him lusting after Amara instead of her?
"Um, blah, blah, blah. And, Girl Power. Feminism, d'you know what I mean?"
Emma frost also pulled alot of strings in the board of education for everyone.
It's a shame we didn't get any human teachers since seeing the reactions to the "interesting" aspects of mutant culture could be fun.
