I guess someone is going to have to explain the Nate Grey reference from ANXM #31 to me.

When Nate Grey crossed over to this reality, he mentally reached out for Jean Grey. He…

Nate created a psychic construct. Think of it as a solid hologram made of telepathic/psychic energies. That Madeline Pryor was not a being of flesh but pure thought made matter. 

Yes.
But.
Is it your contention that this removes the “sex with your mom/aunt” themes, from the story?

It was a psychic construct of Cable’s mom. Nate doesn’t have parents. Like, at all. Unwilling gene donors is as close as he gets. If he started dating 616 Forge, or Mr. Sinister, that would be weirder.

I disagree.

He does not have a mom and dad in the social sense, but he most certainly does have parents. I am on the side that would say the connection between offspring and parent is more primal that just being raised by them.

It would also explain why Nate instinctively reached out to Jean Grey upon reaching the 616, and not Forge.

His want for her, his need, was so strong, he brought the consciousness of a dead woman back to life.

Also, most of the taboo of incest is tied to the fact it creates troglodytes, and people who can’t clot blood, not social connections. As I was reading the these issues as they came out, I was weirded by the notion of Cable’s teenage, alternate reality counterpart becoming intimate with Madelyne. Her status as a psychic construct was not made know until the 25th issue.

Like gpack3, I believe Loeb was consciously playing with this idea, when he first introduced Maddy to Nate. I also think it would have been more worthwhile if the concept was played in order to say something interesting.

This is where art is made, part II

Marc Silvestri - Phil Noto - Chris Weston - John Byrne - Mike Mignola - Frank Cho - JOCK - Michael Lark - Joe Quesada - James Jean

Part I

Really interesting pics here, but no female artists’ spaces?

I save them as I find them, and I have not personally come across any studios of female artists, whose work I am familiar. 

I taught myself how to draw, and I soon found out it was what I really wanted to do. I didn’t think I was going to create any great masterpieces like Rembrandt or Gauguin. I thought comics was a common form of art, and strictly American in my estimation, because America was the home of the common man — and show me the common man that can’t do a comic. So comics is an American form of art that anyone can do with a pencil and paper.
