I know, I know. It sounds crazy.
Lately, everyone has been up in arms about the portrayal of women in comic books. It’s been a issue for a long time; but with DC’s New 52 reboot and its downright sexist approach to redesigning popular female leads, the outcry from fans has grown tenfold. Even I took time to discuss it. I’ve been thinking about it from time to time and I realized that comic books need more characters like Emma Frost.
Yeah, I’m talking about this chick:
She’s scantily clad, cold, mean, bitchy, famous for her decision to go into battle practically wearing lingerie, her breasts are fake, and she’s also a home wrecker. But we need more Emma Frost’s in comics.
Just hear me out.

So, you’re a teacher at a school where mutant kids can learn to control their powers. What tricks do you use to keep your powers under control?
I don’t. I have a special pair of glasses that does it for me.
Without them, I am helpless and blind.
Well, designing them must have taken considerable ingenui—
I didn’t design them. The Professor did.
Oh. Well, that was kind of him. He also asked you to lead his team of mutant superheroes, the X-men, from their inception. What qualities led him to trust you to lead at such a young age?
I am a natural leader.
Er, yes. How so?
I am very good at leadership.
But what aspects of leadership?
The part where I am the leader of the team.
