Why Are Blockbuster Movies About Women Such Clichés?
In Dark Phoenix , J. Law's Mystique quips, "The women are always saving the men around here. You might want to think about changing the name to X-Women" to a hilariously baffled Xavier. This line might have warranted nearly universal eye rolls on the screen due to the film franchise's highly questionable treatment of its female characters overall, but she has a fair point: X-Women really do make the world go 'round, and they do not get the credit they are due.
Rogue has inherited a villa on the Greek island of Kirinos, and invites Storm, Psylocke, Marvel Girl, and Shadowcat to join her on a girls' holiday. While partying at the villa, Marvel Girl is kidnapped, and Psylocke just manages to get the guests out by telekinesis before the villa is blown up. The remaining X-Women trace Rachel from Greece to Madripoor and attempt to bust her out of the villains' temple complex, but Rachel says she cannot leave yet and psychically explains the situation to Kitty. The girls are each hit by some sort of ray as they make their escape by flying over the jungle, and when Baroness Krieg presses a button, they all lose their powers.
