    Default Chris Claremont on the ‘red-headed red herring,’ Madelyne Pryor

    http://robot6.comicbookresources.com...adelyne-pryor/

    Madelyne Pryor, the Jean Grey lookalike introduced in Uncanny X-Men #168, was put through the ringer by writers over the years, as she went from being Scott Summers’ wife and Cable’s mother to a clone of Jean Grey and eventually a supervillain. You’ve gotta love any Wikipedia entry that comes with the caveat, “Madelyne’s biography has been rendered particularly complicated because of the many retcons involved in the publication history of both her character and that of Jean Grey.”


    You're superior to pryde in my eyes -tlp

    So basically she was Scott's Jean consolation prize.

    Pretty terrible first plan.

    Claremont "the whole point is Jean's dead. We're going to tease you, but we're not going to bring her back"

    Still influencing the Marvel after all these years. <3

    No kidding. And no one at Marvel has been able to top his Jean derivative. Even after all these years Madelyne is timeless. Look at the 'clones' we have currently. Utter trash.

    Even Tom Brevoort knows it was a bad idea to do that to Madelyne.

    But it all worked out because she turned out to be a horrible demon queen. Yeah, that was maybe not Marvel's finest hour.

    Really wish they would have stuck with the original plan. Even though I don't hate (all) the Phoenix retcon, what the did to Maddie was horrible. I hope Jean stays dead this time, or who knows how many people they'll screw over to bring her back.

    Claremont please come back!!!

    Everyone on earth does have a double.


    If Chris were still writing he would have had killed Scott and had a human double come back and marry Emma.\


    Thanks Teddy.

    this made my day.

    I'd read a Fonji/Maddie buddy book for sure!
