    I would certainly feel threatened by the concept of having a clone, but my anger, my sense of being betrayed would focus clearly on my wife.

    What if you were the clone and knew it?

    Jean is TOTALLY the other woman but who gives an F? Girl saw what she wanted and took it. It's even less of an issue now that we know that Madelyn is just one of many identical clones Sinister has sitting in a test tube. Candy Southern deserved better though. I mean she had the guts to pull of a perm, maroon skirtsuit with shoulder pads in a way that hasn't been done since. I blame Angel for that though.

    Candy looked great under John Byrne in Hidden Years too. I loved her constant corner smile and all white thing she had going.

    edit after some research it seems her corner smile was a feature she had since the early X-Men issues she appeared in.

    you know what they say about opinions right?

    wrong! it just means you like emma more while others like Jean more. Controversial =/= Interesting. The comics have space for both women but sadly your comment make you appear kinda threatened by any character that does not conforms to your "personal" standards.

    Wasn't that the PF while jean was still in the cocoon?

    Candy looked AWESOME under Johny Byrne always. I loved the issue during the Dark Phoenix saga (132 I think?) where they go to Angel's house in Colorado, Candy looks truly amazing with straightened hair and a sexy sun dress.

    Edit: Where incidentally, I believe she caught Angel giving Jean a "hello smooch" - thus reinforcing Jean's status as the other woman

    no, I'm talking about X-Factor, i think it was after the urine matress fight.

    The PF kissing Angel didn't seem to bother much of anyone, oddly.

    I agree, Candy was a great member of the extended cast and I was pretty bummed out when she was killed off by Cameron Hodge - seemed like such a waste.

    This is a forum for discussing fictional comic books. As taste is subjective, virtually everything posted will be opinions and should not have to be qualified as such as it should be self-evident that that is what they are.

    Don't know who you're trying to convert by policing threads on Jean Grey, Father Riptide, but I assure you the effort is in vain.

    You can tell he would actually use a classy magazine for inspiration/swiping clothes at least.

    Louise Simonson practically killed off all of the powerful x-related women. I used to think she limited herself to New Mutants, now I realize she was doing it in XF too!

    You did a bit more than share an opinion, you accused him of being threatened by the character. Let's not be disingenuous, RiptideX. j'accuse!
