|03:52 pm - Erik and Charles in comics canon, part 5|
We finally get to the last post of the series, and more of less catch up to current comics canon. Doing this has been the most fun I've had in fandom in ages, and I'd like to thank everyone for the wonderfully encouraging comments and interesting discussions that came up along the way. As time-consuming as making these posts was, I'll definitely miss the whole process now that I'm done.
( Where there is much bickering and old married couplenessCollapse )
Current Mood: relieved

After the angst, betrayal and BDSM role-play of the last post comes the perfect antidote in the form of Excalibur V3, a 14-issue series that's a essentially a love letter to all Erik/Charles fans.
( That time Charles and Erik ran away to live togetherCollapse )
Current Mood: giddy

Brace yourselves, everybody, this is the part where it gets unpleasant. Magneto's return to villainy through the 90s and early 00s led to some of the most iconic (and controversial) Magneto storylines. Charles and Erik both end up doing some pretty horrible things to each other, and we move from the “they're so married” dynamic of the 80s to “that abusive boyfriend you just keep coming back to”.
( In which they both come off as assyCollapse )

This is taking longer than expected. Looking at the folder of panels I've gathered, it looks like it might be four posts, but that's a conservative estimate.

Watching First Class only reminded me of Their Very Epic Love in the comic books, and made me want to share some evidence of it for movie fans who are not currently up to going through decades of comics backstory to get to the good stuff.
