After recent events in Uncanny X-Force, it has become clear that Fantomex (who once possessed three brains in a single body) has now been separated into three selves: One good, one evil, one female. Moreover, his good self and his female self have embarked on what seems to be a romantic relationship, even though their demeanor and dress sense indicates that they’re still pretty much the same person. This particular plot twist freaks me out more than the revelation that ultimate Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch might be partners, for some reason, even though Pietro and Wanda are fraternal twins. Given that Wolverine’s relationship with HIS female clone (and, also, why are there so many opposite-gender clones running about?) is more parental than anything, the whole thing is equal parts sci-fi brilliance and perversity. (Except the brother/sister love affair, that’s 100% the latter.)
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) believes that we may have hit on one of the great science-fiction conundrums, asking: Is it creepy that Fantomex and his female clone are dating? Could you court your own opposite gender clone?
