Subject:Mackenzie pretends to be smart

Current Mood:awake
I feel like I should be smart and post something intelligent, but unfortunately right now I'm kind of stuck in a OMG SLASH loop, so I'll link to something decidedly more ambitious.

The Problem of Graydon Creed - Genetics of the X-Men

It's an essay that's over a year old, and probably grossly inaccurate, but at least there's a more complex thought process going on.

Icarus : Joshua (Jay) Guthrie

MARY SUE?

Poll #519530 Mary Sue?

Yes!
1(33.3%)
No!
0(0.0%)
Ticky Box!
2(66.7%)


magikfanfic: I don't understand why he's become such a golden child, though.
magikfanfic: I mean, there comes a point where there's too many powers.
teza: I know. Dude. Just stop.
teza: Next thing you know, he'll shit glitter. :D
magikfanfic: Magic, healing glitter. ;-)
teza: Ys. Although, to be fair, his blood doesn't heal like Warren's.
teza: Lots of people bitch about the tribal mutants. I LIKE IT.
teza: I think it makes SENSE.
magikfanfic: Wait. Warren's blood heals, too. I think mutants with the same powers make sense. Mutants with a hella lot of mutations don't.
magikfanfic: Especially when the mutations aren't related.
magikfanfic: Telepathy/telekinesis--sense
magikfanfic: wings/magic blood--no sense
teza: Yah. But Warren's blood heals others. Jay's only heals himself.
magikfanfic: Still. No sense.
teza: Well, we've been TAUGHT that telepathy and telekinesis are related. Why should wings/magic blood be? ;p
teza: Maybe they're on the same gene!
magikfanfic: It just seems a little too perfect. For these mutants to have wings and be able to heal.


Joshua Guthrie: One of the middle children in the hard-to-number Guthrie clan. First, his voice was his power. Then, he had wings. (Secondary Mutation, anyone? You know you like it.)

Then, he had healing blood.

Plus, he's a pretty boy musician.

MARY SUE or LOGICAL?

In order to make our Info look cool, I stole teza's coding from our sister community bpal_sluts. (We're all _sluts together.) I've modified it a little, basically some color and text changes, but I've credited both teza and bpal_sluts. (Besides teza >3's me.)

She or I might be playing with the journal layout, the colors, the links, etc. We both might make some icons. Feel free to make icons as well for the community if you want to. Also, feel free to start a discussion. I realized shortly after creating this community, that I don't have a good beginning discussion topic yet--bad me!--so fire away.

Hello and welcome to comic_sluts. We're one in a growing number of _sluts communities around LJ land. We've moderated, but we're friendly.

The purpose of this _sluts journal is to facilitate the discussion of comic books. For, you see, even though I love scans_daily greatly, there's not a whole lot of comic discussion going on and since one of my goals in life is to become a comic book scholar, I thought I should create a place where I and some like-minded individuals--mostly my close LJ friends--can kick around interesting, complex and even light comic book ideas and theories.

And a little slash.
