A lot of people are talking about this week’s release of X-Men First Class, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t experiencing feelings of flurried anxiety in anticipation of what could be the best release by Marvel to date. I love the X-Men and everything related to the X-Men (comic books) so I get really protective when people fuck up my favourite story lines. I grew up watching the X-Men cartoon in the 90s and the first few movies were awesome, but the Wolverine Movie was such a terrible movie that I think we all lost a bit of faith in humanity and its ability to bring comic books to life (deep sigh). So I’m preparing myself for the worst, but in a sea of possible darkness and shitty plotlines, we can all look forward to the beacon of light that is January Jones.
Jan had recently become my most hated character in Mad Men (as I’m sure many of you have experienced), so her role as the Ice Queen, Emma Frost, is actually quite fitting. She’s proven, as Betty, that she can go from soft-spoken housewife to caniving bitch before you can say “apple pie” a trait fitting of the Hellfire Club’s first later. Enjoy our 60 reasons January Jones will make First Class a better place and watch the featurette that has restored my faith in the genre.
