In the Iceman mini-series #1 in 1984, he said he was half-Catholic, half-Jewish, but he didn't specify which parent was which. That's all I've got for information.
That's interesting... In normal familial traditional, the child takes on the religion/preference of the mother while that child takes on the last name of the father. So in a traditional sense, depending on what religion his mother is, so makes him that as well. Like my father is Greek Orthodox while my mother is Jewish, so all my life I was raised Jewish.
It wasn't in 2009, it was in the 1990's. This is some washed-up thirtysomething douchebag trying to get paid.......scapegoating Singer because of his sexual preference. Really? You gonna wait 20 years to say something? Oh, wait, COINCIDENTALLY, Singer is directing probably the biggest superpowered movie, EVER......I'm sure that has Nothing to do with it.
The guy is thirty something, it happened in the 90s, and he's suing for money not the crime... It's a scam!
@papad1992: its hardly fair to Jamie, or even accurate, to even say that Polaris led X-Factor investigations. She and Havok may have tried to horn in and take over, but they had no success. This was Madrox's team, and tho she took the lead with powers... she was not the leader of the team in any respect... except perhaps when Jamie was absent.
Polaris is an awful character. She suffers from "Magneto-Spawn Syndrome" they're all batshit crazy and none of them are remotely interesting because of that. Wanda and Lorna have awe-inspiring powers... thats about it... except for the crazy. Pietro is one of the worst characters in marveldom...
Ok... guess you're not a fan of the spawns of Mags. And "when Jaime was absent" was the period in which I was describing. Your opinion about Polaris is you opinion, I was speaking in general to the subject of the thread. I'm a fan of PAD's X-Factor (since the beginning) and I wasn't pleased with the reintroduction of Polaris and Havok in this team but I was merely describing her recent actions and position to exclude her from the "demise" title.
Just what I was thinking, especially for a threat about 'the demise of the X-ladies' :p.
I agree... totally the wrong image for what was trying to be conveyed here.
I think certain characters have had their moments and have had their falls. But in terms of the "demise" of the X-Ladies... I'd think about that statement.
Rogue has had X-Men Legacy for quite awhile, Storm had X-Men (vol 3) for a bit and was redesigned, Dazzler had the X-treme X-Men, Pixie was the poster child for student turned X-Man, Polaris was brought back from space and led X-Factor (both the previous and the newest incarnations), Psylocke had Uncanny X-Force, Frenzy (of all characters) was brought back into the light for awhile, Emma Frost had the role of "leading lady" in many of the X-titles, Kitty Pryde, after returning from space, became a teacher, than headmistress of the school, Magik was brought back from limbo, literally, and has become a major player, Marrow has now just been brought back from obscurity, Omega Sentinel has been recreated in terms of characterization, X-23 is... well... X-23, no explanation needed... should I go on?
"Demise" is not the correct term here: Characterization is. It is the writer's intent/license on whether or not they see fit any number of characters into their stories/plots. And if you think about it... women, as a whole in any sort of cultured medium, have come a long way since their inception in any form of media. Think about it.
I've been away from comics for quite awhile now because of the lack of interest... But seeing as how Kyle and Yost (the masterminds behind New X-Men) are coming on board, I'm hoping for them to bring in the students from the New X-Men series! Take out some of these heavy hitters and fill the spots in with some younger X-Men-to-be's. G-d knows there having so much fun being backdrops and fillers...
