    I think the X-Men need to associate more with non-powered humans in general. Kind of seems like that fits with the message of mutants and normal humans Coexisting in peace.


It is strange that though there are quite a number of relationships between mutants and non-mutant/non-powered persons, they rarely seem to last. Some writers seem to like nothing better than break up couples and/or kill off the non-mutant partner (vide also Mariko Yashida). And this even includes writers who want to get rid of one non-mutant character to replace them with another, such as when Chris Claremont had Scott dump Lee Forrester just before he first met Madelyne, or when Louise Simonson killed off Candy Southern not long before she had Warren meet Charlotte Jones. Speaking of Candy, it just struck me how similar her death was to that of Gwen Stacy (Gwen was basically killed because she was Spider-Man's girlfriend, at least before "Sins Past", and the same happened to Candy because she was the Angel's life-partner). And yet I don't really recall any stories - except in the immediate aftermath of her death - where Warren reflects to a notable extent on the love

    But Maddie herself. It was interesting to see her journey. She was a normal woman thrown into all this chaos (we did not she was a clone yet), and it was interesting to see her react to being pushed and pulled with all the craziness around her.

    She was abandoned by her husband, faked her death, never really fit with the X-Men, despite making herself useful.

    By the time she became the Goblin Queen, you really understood how that could happen to her, it may not have been right, but she had been pushed and pulled so muck it made sense. Her story was a tragedy, and while you didn't agree with what she ultimate did, you could at least sympathize with how she could get to that position.
