So, if you follow me, you may have noticed that this blog has been incredibly inactive as of late. That is in part due to things going on in real life and my free time being spent writing (I RPG on two sites), but the real root of the matter is that it’s actually painful for me to host an Emma blog at this point in time.
I love her so much, she’s the character that was the final pushing point to get me into comics after seeing her in Wolverine and the X-Men. I’d had moderate interest from JL and JLU, but that show (and Emma (xCyke) and X-23 were what specifically pushed me.
Emma was this badass female with a soft heart that was hidden with an ice cold exterior. Her hidden flaws made her perfect, she was HBIC and she didn’t take shit from anybody. If only they had kept that up in the comics.
The Fraction run was bad enough. I thought we’d never escape that hellhole. After being written by the likes of Morrison and especially Whedon only to have the new showrunner come in and essentially shit all over the character, it was heartbreaking. And I wasn’t even reading currently, this was all TPB’s and whatnot.
But lately…AvX specifically, it’s gotten painful to see how they’ve taken her character. She had this great rejuvenation at the hands of Kieron Gillen and then BAM. AvX… just terrible.
I know I said earlier partway through this event that if Marvel killed Emma off I’d drop them. I’ve gotten to the point where I’d rather they do that than wreck her any further.
So for now, the blog’s on hiatus. I may reblog something every now and then, but I can’t bring myself to put my heart and soul and feels into this when it’s so damn painful to see what they’ve done with Emma.
