why don't you like new x-men scott? ive heard very mixed things about that comic, including that its what made scott interesting. (im neutral, ive read a bit of it but not enough to say either way, and i also just dont know as much about scott's history as you so i'm very curious what you think!)
what people mean when they say “interesting” is tht scott became the most annoying fucking thing this side of the multiverse. new x-men multiplied every single one of his flaws tenfold in a way that made him unlikeable and unappealing.
like a few examples. pre-2000s scott has some jokes about scott and jean being into bdsm. new x-men makes that into a plot point. scott wants dark, kinky sex his wife apparently can no longer provide. this conflicts with the fact scott also DOESNT want sex because after apocalypse he felt violated and used and sex was too much, this apparently upsets jean and she considers scott “weak” bcs of it. scott cheats on her as a form of “embracing his inner darkness”
pre-2000s scott finds other women attractive sometimes but only in the jokey ‘oh jeez psylocke please stop flashing me your boobs’ sense and he loves his wife more than he could ever be attracted to another woman. psyche! new x-men scott is tired of jean. theyve only been with each other for so long obviously they must be unhappy. true love doesnt exist and soulmates are a lie. jean is a bitch for some reason.
im not saying new x-men isnt entertaining. im not saying it isnt a must on any reading list. im just saying NO ONE IN THIS STUPID COMIC IS REMOTELY LIKEABLE. THIS SHOULD NOT BE MAINVERSE CONTINUITY.
