Welcome to White Queen Wednesday, gentle reader. This week I discuss Emma Frost’s complicated history with her one-time foe and current X-Men teammate Magneto. Although they both began as X-Men villains, Emma and Magneto originally encountered each other during a period of time when Magneto had reformed and in fact acted as headmaster of Professor Xavier’s school in his absence and instructed the New Mutants, who Emma frequently tried to enroll in her Massachusetts Academy to join her Hellions.

Welcome, gentle reader. Today, in this short and sweet installment of White Queen Wednesday, I would like to spotlight a couple of lovely Emma Frost commissions drawn by Nick Bradshaw. You might recognize his vibrant kinetic art style from previous editions of White Queen Wednesday and Storm Sunday, where he made the seemingly random assortment of mutants currently residing on the X-Men’s island Utopia appear more like a cohesive unit.

It is once again White Queen Wednesday, gentle reader. Today I would like to share with you Emma Frost’s profile from the original Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. We’ve seen what Steve Rogers had to say about the White Queen as a hero in his assessment and follow-up, but these pages offer a less opinionated and more thorough exploration of Emma’s history and powers when she was still a villain with the Hellfire Club.

Hello again, gentle reader. Marvel’s solicitations for April were recently released and they reveal some interesting indications for Emma Frost. Beginning in April’s Uncanny X-Men #534.1, the title will be getting a new regular writer, Kieron Gillen. Judging from these covers, Emma Frost has taken this creative change as an opportunity to get herself a new costume as well. Or perhaps new costumes, plural.

Welcome to White Queen Wednesday, gentle reader. On Sunday, STORM spotlighted some lovely Storm artwork drawn by Stephane Roux. I love the first few issues of Zatanna’s current ongoing series he drew. So I thought I would share with you some equally appealing Stephane Roux drawings of Emma Frost as well. In the above image, Emma is wearing her White Queen outfit from her time with the Hellfire Club, although not for long since she has dropped her cape and is in the process of unlacing her corset. Naughty Emma!
