It's why some people need to have a right or wrong, because it becomes about them, and they can't possibly be in the wrong.
The story is kind of incongruent with how Scott was portrayed in Consequences. He's not above having a pity party here and there but he isn't one to shirk responsibility.
Or he could just be having a moment of weakness and Emma calling him out caused him to get more defensive/dismissive, although I can't recall him ever doing that before, even when Jean did it to him.
And I think you have a point "...let them have a relationship..." the Emma/Namor relationship in a lot of ways began mid-stride. It began with the presumption that there was something "going on" as opposed to growing organically. Emma and Namor's interactions with each other were predicated on a love triangle than never existed. I'm not a huge Namor fan, but I'd much rather see them just talk than to hint that they really understand each other the best. If there is hope for an Emma/Namor meeting in NA, I'll be more than happy to give them a chance. I'm kinda just starting over, relaxing a bit. I'm gonna try and give everyone a chance.
In dog days, all we need is Frost.
The reason she had her telepathy taken away is so she can't read his mind and see how sincere he is.
Maybe it's because I'm sort of enjoying it, but I'm going to give some benifit of the doubt to Bendis in term of the conversation.
First, I don't think Cykes is trying to take off his responsibility, he just wants people not to forget he wasn't just himself and simply got defensive. He probably didn't expect that much anger from Emma and his powers were going wonky, which is a huge deal to him, since this is a guy who has got to be careful with opening his eyes every morning so he doesn't destroy anything and any one. That lost of control has got to be mortifying. Besides, he only got defensive about the Emma thing, which is understandable and the Xavier thing, which Emma is like what? The 10th person to bring it up in the span of a week? I totally understand the reaction.
The dialogue wasn't that bad. Was it very Frost? No, but Emma has been confide to a cell for some undetermine amount of weeks, maybe even a month. She was aware her TP was gone (Which explain somewhat how she got captured, I guess) and probably dealing with that (Lends more credit to when she said she lost everything. You know Telepaths think they're better than others and go crazy when they lose this power in some way cause it doesn't make them so special). And again, she was angry and probably waiting to tell him off since the moment she was defeated in 11. And then he comes with the it wasn't me defense. I got to say, as someone who's yelled a bunch of stupid things that don't make sense while angry, Emma was far more articulate than she had any right to be. I guess as Emma fans we expect a little more, but at the same time we need to realize some of the context allows the exchange to make sense. That said, there's definetely room for improvement, but it's not nearly a trainwreck.
As for the plot itself, as some others, I'm confused as to how Emma can help Eva in 1, unless she just gave her a peptalk, if she lost her TP. I also want them to clarify if she lost her TP completely or if she can still do other things psy. Magneto merely got downgraded some after all, with training she might able go back to norm. I kinda hate the idea she lost it though, since that just makes her like her Ultimate counterpart, just diamond girl, which just leaves her as the team's tank. I hope they at least consider given her some upgrades to her Diamon Form then. As for the state of their relationship? This was just part 1. Emma got her stuff out. Scott as usual, didn't really get fully into it cause he was distracted by other things, so we'll see if Bendis allows them to have a conversation once things cool down.
Too bad we have to wait till the 05 make the remaining issues of this arc about them.
Over all, I'm still fairly interested where they're taking Emma here.
I also have been enjoying ANX overall. As ironic as it seems it actually feels rather fresh. It's been fun seeing the 05 operating as something of a cohesive unit as opposed to a ragtag team of mental cases that's been the X-Men's schtick since time out of mind it feels like to me. I'm beginning to feel that may be why the 05 are really here, to let all of the X-Men know that sometimes they really just need to get the *deleted* over themselves.
