For those wondering what’s up with Emma Frost’s dialogue in All-New X-Men #3, writer Brian Michael Bendis has a response (Well, kind of):
i have my handle on the character and like those who came before me its going to take her somewhere new. new look, new look on life, new realizations… the woman has been through some gigantic traumatic things. some have happened to her and some she did to herself. she did some awful things last year. all of this will be examined.
As it happens, Tom Brevoort – who isn’t editing the book – has a far funnier reasoning behind it:
Emma? Do you have something to say to Mr. Bendis yourself?
