So, as I have been reading far too much X-men fanfiction recently and I don’t follow X-men at all outside of the movies (of which I’ve only seen three, First Class included) and the second animated series I decided to look at Wikipedia to inform me. Also, I wanted to check whether the fact Nightcrawler’s hair is grounds for a Sandman crossover. (X-men is Marvel, Sandman is DC so er… in-universe is out, BUT IT’S SO CURLY and exactly like Desire’s hair and now I want to read something that involves the two of them.)
Which lead to me looking at Magneto’s timeline and… holy crap. I don’t think I’ve got enough suspension of belief for the comic canon. I’ll just stick to movie/cartoon canon and fanon. It’s er… kind of more believable. Though the House of M storyline does seem kind of cool. Also, Magneto has a case of twins in the family tree. Both his kids and his grandkids have pairs of twins in them. His grandkids seem the coolest out of the lot though, with a fan favourite – Wiccan – and the cutie Luna (whose mother is called Polaris and eee, geeky celestial name love!) being two of them. It almost makes me sad that in my headcanon (which is pretty much hybrid genetics) that they wouldn’t have children. Although… yeah, if there are great-grandkids in a storyline the story’s been going on far too long. Especially if the great-grandparents are still alive. And er… comics shouldn’t HAVE complex family trees.
( And I found out more stuff about Magneto, including how Ian McKellen ALSO wishes that Magneto and Professor X got together )
( I then talk about Moira, beards, history and how I REALLY want a crossover featuring Canton the III )
( Followed by Raven, yet more rambling about how horrible comic book family trees are as well as more wishing for a Doctor Who crossover. )
( Suddenly a distraction! Or a demon named Azazel who has a kid in New Zealand and is played by an actor who did a remake of a British sci-fi pioneer and worked with David Tennant, thus proving that every English actor ever has worked with every other English actor. )
( Also, Mark Gatiss is awesome. And there should be a Doctor Who and Haruhi Suzumiya crossover of a kind. )
And that pretty much sums up my exciting adventure through Wikipedia. If you find such things as interesting. I know I found it interesting, even though I went on tangents galore and isn’t it such a pretty thing to see how my mind works.
