I can’t believe that’s the same character. She was so cool in Morrison’s run. That is some bullshit.

It really is disappointing when comic creators limit the variety of what is shown on the pages. It is something you see more often with female characters, but they also did the same thing with Beak, changing him from a lanky kid, into a line backer of a dude.

That whole storyline was so stupid and misguided.

It really was. I don’t often think back and get bothered about comics I did not like, but this is one of them. 

Like I understand that characters are essentially toys that are shared between creators but when you completely disrespect and stomp over what the previous creators did….. The point of these characters was they were able to be great X-Men and compelling heroes without being traditionally beautiful. It was more about their personality and with Beak in particular part of his storyline was everyone shit on him because of how he looked and his lack of an offensive mutation.

In what may be the most egregious example of double standards in sports, the NFL is planning to ban Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon for an entire season after he tested positive for marijuana within nanograms of the league limit.

Meanwhile, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice will reportedly face just a two game suspension after he was caught on tape knocking his wife unconscious and dragging her out of an elevator.
How exactly does that work? (via micdotcom)
