Cold As Tits!

(Cover by Karl Moline, Marvel Comics)

We have great comics coming to us this week, as usual, but there is one issue above all the others that I’m dying to pick up. Valerie D’Orazio’s second major entry as a comic book author comes to us in the form of X-Men Origins: Emma Frost. Naturally, it tells the tale of Emma Frost’s early rise to power in the Marvel U. From a meek, New England beginning to running one of the deadliest secret cabals in history and finally to a more tempered role as a mentor and member of the X-Men, she’s done it all. Such a varied and mega-powerful woman is sure to be in safe hands with D’Orazio and with Karl Moline on visuals it’s going to be gorgeous as well.

We talk about it often but we love seeing complex women take the forefront in entertainment and I think it makes the world a better place to encourage that. In the Marvel U, I don’t think any other character represents power as much as the original White Queen does, in her unique way. While Jean Grey was unadulterated psychic force, perhaps, Emma Frost is pure psychic power that takes pleasure in the power. What’s more feminist than a woman who’s unafraid of her own capabilities and loves to exercise them? She has a deep-seated thing for being at the top and she’s more than happy to make you aware of it. That’s the basic attitude we should be instilling in young women. You are powerful and you are capable of anything.

Maybe Emma Frost has done some real harm in her world but at the end of the day, she fights for what she believes in. All good reasons why I’m excited for Wednesday and why you should be too!
