I have been going crazy over Husk as of last month, drawing her, following her connections to other marvel characters. Thinking about her potential, her brothers, her drive and heart and everything she puts into being a mutant. Cannonball did the same thing, which is great that they will be in the new Wolverine and the X-men monthly:
The Guthries stick together, unlike many other marvel families, besides the FF... examples:
Summers: Scott & Alex fight all the time, Vulcan killed their father, in the end they are not on speaking terms.
Frosts: One was gay and went crazy, then Emma Shot the one while the other tried to get one over on her.
St Croix: Lets just say M and Emplate and the twins never sway eye to eye on anything.
Magneto, Quicksliver, Polaris and Scarlet Witch: CRAZY!
Prof X: His son has a shattered mind and his step brother wants him dead.
Besides Colossus and Magik, no other mutant families keep it together like the Guthries. The X-Men are known for their family ties but they have not been showing us anything hopeful at all. Paige and Sam have history since 1983 and can both handle being full time X-Men. Why I think Husk and Cannonball must stay in the spotlight as long as possible:
-finally show us how they react to one another in a fight. bickering and all.
-Dive into how Husk's powers work now.
-Will Sam become more of a leader?
-Show us why we care for the whole Guthrie family, having Jeb and Aero visit/ join the new school.
-Some Icarus closer would be nice.
-Paige and Sam are the all American varsity players on the X-Men, they have trained and want to do the best. We need to see this.
-Keeping Husk around means bringing back lots of Gen-X history should return. :-)
- Along with some Chamber and Cannonball headbutting.
-Beast and Husk are both very smart quick witted people and should have great conversations.
-Husk and Iceman both have awesome powers to combined in some great art and flirting.
-Bobby's flirting with Husk can drive Cannonball and Chamber INSANE.
- And if they planned on having a student/ teacher relationship I only see it working between Omega Kid and Husk. Which then would have Sam freaking out about there being a line not to cross. Those stories only ever play out well if the teacher is female. If Cannonball hooked up with Cipher, Logan would bring the pain.
-Show how Cannonball and Husk wade through it all and still love one another and keep their family and the X-Men together.
I know I have some crazy ideas, and I am going to up load some crappy art of Husk I did last night just for fun. :-)
