But what about mythical detective Loki?
obviously superior to all of them because he’s a magical boy
mythological Loki > marvel Loki
It’s funny how Loki has thousands who try to justify him committing genocide but Emma Frost can’t even get away with wearing a corset.
I love Loki and I love Emma Frost.
Loki is defended because of the shitty life he’s had - not to mention that he was basically being possessed to do the things he did by Thanos - and Emma Frost isn’t because we don’t know her backstory and therefore there is no justification for her actions. I, personally, love Emma Frost and think she’s a great character.
Emma Frost was born in Boston, Massachusetts, to the wealthy Winston and Hazel Frost; she is the second of three daughters and also had an older brother, Christian Frost. Winston is cold, ruthless, and domineering, often imposing impossibly high standards on his children, while Hazel abuses prescription drugs to cope with the tensions of her household. Thus, Emma obtains no emotional support from her parents or her sisters Adrienne and Cordelia, but gets along with her gay brother Christian.
At her school, she is ruthlessly teased by the other students and has difficulties with her grades. She is supported by her teacher, Ian Kendall. After some time with headaches, her telepathic powers begin to manifest, allowing her to read the minds of other students and get answers to the tests. Because she is able to glean information, Emma becomes a tutor to other students and Ian recommends her to be a teacher, something Emma’s father refuses.
On her way home from school one day, Emma’s car breaks down and Ian gives her a ride home. After reading his thoughts and learning that he thinks she is beautiful and intelligent, Emma kisses him. Her sister Adrienne records it and her father uses the evidence to get Ian fired. Emma begins to fight back by revealing Adrienne’s secret modeling career and taking pictures of her father with a mistress. Her actions intrigue her father, who says that she reminds him of himself at her age. Her father chooses her to carry on his fortune, but after seeing her father betray her trust and commit Christian to a mental institution following a suicide attempt, Emma rejects his offer and decides to make her own way in life.
After a period of homelessness, Emma meets and falls in love with a young man named Troy, who agrees to let Emma live with him. She learns that he owes a large amount of money to a local mobster named Lucien. In order to save Troy’s life, Emma agrees to participate in a fake kidnapping scheme in an attempt to extort the remainder of Troy’s debt from her father. However, Winston refuses to pay the ransom, and Troy is killed while valiantly attempting to save Emma from an enraged Lucien. After disposing of Troy’s corpse, Lucien’s thugs handcuff Emma to a pipe and seal her mouth shut with duct tape, intending to kill her later. Adrienne releases Lucien’s ransom video to the media, forcing Winston to pay for Emma’s safe release. Not content with the money, Lucien still decides to kill her, but by using her powers, Emma turns the thugs against one another and then forces the remaining henchman to free her.
Emma takes the ransom money and enrolls in Empire State University. There, she begins to learn about mutants for the first time. She briefly dates a basketball player; however after their first date, he mysteriously attacks her and is reported. She also meets a fellow telepath named Astrid Bloom, who becomes her friend and mentor. Emma is also shocked to learn that Ian is also working at ESU and is dating her roommate. Emma, who still loves him, begins to date him and is horrified to later learn that he was caught attacking her roommate.
Emma later learns that Astrid was secretly behind both the basketball player and Ian’s attacks. Furious, she attacks Astrid telepathically and leaves her comatose. Though she is able to use her powers to save Ian’s job, he rejects her when she confesses her powers as a mutant to him. She becomes cold towards humans after this, and later auditions as a dancer for the Hellfire Club,an underground elite society. Emma discovers the plans of Edward Buckman and Steven Lang to destroy all mutants. Alongside Sebastian Shaw, Lourdes Chantel, and Harry Leland, Emma battles Lang’s Sentinels. Alongside Shaw, she kills Buckman and the Council of the Chosen, then – along with Shaw – takes control of the Hellfire Club, setting themselves up as Lords Cardinal of the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club.
That is from wikipedia
I would also like to add in that somewhere in between that, her father also had her institutionalized for being psychic and left her there to rot. Assuming they were under his payroll, they kept her sedated at all times and eventually she came to and snapped out of, killing the nurses who kept her there.
She lived on the streets for sometime as she developed her telepathy on her own doing what she had to do for survival. The dark beast even took her in where he lived under the sewers when he some men heckling her.
In short, Emma Frost grew up wealthy in cold home with a disgusting man for a father and not once did she she rely on her money to make her way in her world. She built her own company from the ground up. She didn’t have a Charles Xavier to teach her how to hone in on her telepathy.
I’m glad you think Emma is a great character, BUT SHE HAS A BACKSTORY. SHE DIDN’T HAVE A NICE CHILDHOOD EITHER. AND NO ARGUMENT IS EVER GOING TO JUSTIFY LOKI STANS WHILE EMMA IS SLUT SHAMED.
bless this post, bless emma frost, queen of everything.
