    nothing against the community, but if a writer were writing a team in San Fran, I think Northstar would be the prime target in the book

    I didnt mean for it to be funny, its just fact. Jean Paul will probably rent an apartment in the Twin Peeks area, if he knows the area. You know the writer will bring it up

    Agreed. The move to San Fran in the book probably means they'll use Northstar again, but as a hero? Or as a guy who likes men, and happens to be a mutant.
    Keep your stick on the ice.

    Live it.

    It says earlier in the book that Frost put out a telepathic apb and they responded.

    I'm sure Mike Carey will handle Northstar better than Brubaker and Land handled Karma in Uncanny #501.
    Karma's tagline: "Psionic mind-possession. Likes Girls."
    I say this from the standpoint that the introduction taglines for Pixie and Emma did not say "Likes men" nor did the taglines for Cyclops, Angel, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, say "likes girls."
    And I VERY specifically point out that Colossus' tagline did NOT say "Lovelorn for a woman."
    Why the emphasis on Karma's orientation? It had NOTHING to do with the story at hand.
    And while I'm on the tirade...how necessary was the bed scene with Scott and Emma? I think back to Jim Shooter's edict that every comic is someone's first. How many concerned parents will be getting their kid a future issue of Uncanny X-Men if they glance through the first?
    I am no prude. If there's a story about the orientation of a gay character or anyone else's sex life, bring it on. But I personally find it unnecessary to show anything gratuitious or be leabeling the gay characters. Byrne was always pretty concise about Northstar, but it was never flaunted. We knew Aurora and Sasquatch (and Mac and Heather) were a couple without needing to seeing them post-forn.
    I'm not asking for G-rated stories, but I do think comics should still be appropriate foir kids, even if they are not targeted to them. If Brubaker and Facton are not capable of that, they should be replaced with people who are.

    recent publications in M-Brane Science Fiction and the anthology Things We Are Not.
    Forthcoming stories in Breath and Shadow, Star Dreck anthology and The Aether Age: Helios.

    Have you read punisher MAX? 18+ older comics are way better.
    more in-depth story and feelings.

    Plus, when punisher MAX had to sleep with that hooker like 20 times to get information, that was the best comic ever!
