Dark X-Men - the Confession #1 - Marvel
Ok, this is it. This is the point where Scott and Emma tell each other all of their dark secrets. This is where everything that they've been keeping from each other comes out into the open. The only bad part about this story is that it actually takes place before the Utopia cross-over. However, it does explain why Scott appeared to be unwavering about his support of Emma even when he saw her leading the Dark X-Men. Yes, they could be lying to each other. They could be leaving something out. But . . I don't really think they did. Scott makes them converse on the psychic plane. First he wants someplace private. But also, I think he wanted to be someplace where they couldn't deceive each other. A place where they would be able to witness all of the lies, and deceptions and dark secrets that they've been withholding from one another. They'd be able to see their feelings and emotions psychically. I think this also takes place before Utopia because in her diamond form, I don't think this would've been possible. Personally, I thought it was a great step for them to take in their relationship. Emma even admits to Scott that she knows that everyone thinks that she's using him . . that she hasn't really changed . . that she's been duping him to some nefarious end. In the end . . they profess the trust and love in each other. It was actually kind of moving. I thought Craig Kyle and Chris Yost did a great job with the story. Bing Cansino does the art. All in all, I thought it was a great step forward for arguably 2 of the most important characters in the X-Men universe right now.
