Default Re: The Official JANUARY JONES/Emma Frost Thread - Part 1

No thanks. A movie should stand on it's own. This movie stands on it's own quite well. The limits of her powers simply are not mentioned in the movie, and therefore are either poorly communicated, or (what I think) are just worked around so that comic nerds will notice something deeper than the rest of the movie goers. But for all intents and purposes, the limits do not "exist" in the movie world because there is no way for a viewer to know about it unless they read the X books after she developed that power. It's like if they briefly showed a girl in a yellow coat...comic fans may KNOW FOR A FACT that it is Jubilee walking by...but for the average movie goer...no, Jubilee was not in the film. It was just some chick in a yellow coat.
