Emma Frost is … “scintillating,” to say the least. This site would be nothing without a collection of Emma Frost quotes!
Without a doubt, Emma was one of my favorite characters to draw all-time because I remembered her from the old x-men comic books I used to love as a kid!
(On the bicker between Kitty and Emma in AXM #2) I kept pushing Joss to have the girls duke it out in a mud hole out back, but he doesn’t like the way I draw mud…
Maybe you're just Jean Grey, gone insane. Or maybe you're the Phoenix. Obeying cosmic laws we'll never understand. All I know for sure is that when you come back...you're going to have to deal with me.
I love the juxtaposition between the voice speaking to Emma and the romantic shot of Kitty and Peter on the lawn. I intentionally tried to tie that shot into the last shot from #4 to sort of tie things together…
There are several factors to it: 1) Awesome writers loved her. When you have Grant Morrison and Joss Whedon really pushing you as a character, chances are you’re going to stick. 2) She’s such a power-house character from X-Men past. She was hugely important as a villain and as a hero in the past. 3) She’s a strong woman and there’s a history of those in X-Men. 4) She’s a perfect foil for Scott. She’s a grey to his black and white. She pushes him and challenges him. 5) You never know 100% if you can trust her, and that’s just so interesting.
And Emma’s just great to write. She’s my favorite to write. But I use her to voice some of my own [female characteristics]. There’s such a great dynamic between them. Chris Claremont was great at that. He has such great takes on these aspects of the characters no one else has thought of. There’s a lot going on with Emma, Scott, and Jean. Emma puts out but Jean’s actually more hardcore than Emma, and Scott’s torn between these two women. It’s a weird, interesting setup. And both women are telepathic. That spells bad news for Scott Summers…
[on the new Astonishing X-Men costumes] …And Emma’s still Emma without being gravity confusing. There’s not as much double-stick tape.
[On Astonishing X-Men #12] Emma and the voice? With whom is she speaking? What has she got planned? And what the hell? Is she good? What’s going on there? Let me tell you, I’m really excited about where I’m going with Emma, and I think it’ll fit very nicely with everything that’s gone before and upset a few things but in a way to make fans say, “He doesn’t give a shit.” I’m very fascinated with her arc and I think I can bring something to it that will change people’s perception without them thinking I wasn’t paying attention. It’s going to be exciting and it’s not going to be pretty. But she will be pretty.
I like Emma because it’s always fun to write a really bitchy character.
[on the new generation of X-Men] Our kids were built by Emma and Cyclops, not Xavier. I think they’d have a tough time listening to words of peace and control when they’ve had to fight so hard just to survive. I hope they don’t listen to him [Professor X]; I think they’re better off without him.
Superpowers, a scintillating wit, and the best body money can buy...and I still rate below a corpse.
Yes, our own little poster child. Isn't it sweet? 'The nonthreatening 'Shadowcat', or 'Sprite', or 'Ariel' or whatever incredibly unimpressive name you're using nowadays.
You feel no pain. You will go straight to a hospital. Remember nothing of this place. And every time you hear the words 'parsley', 'intractable', or 'longitude', you will vomit uncontrollably for forty-eight hours.
This man, this extraordinary, ordinary man is in love. With me.
Why I find such patently idiotic chivalry a turn-on is truly a mystery to me. But you, Danger, you're an open blackberry. You never got over your parent programming. If it's any consolation, no one ever does.
You're so unpleasant even I'm impressed. Do you visit orphanages to explain there's no Santa?
A gold star to the first girl who discovers the awful truth about Tom and Nicole...
I've become the perfect Faberge killing machine for a reason... and that reason is surely not to wave the flag of X-liberalism.
Breeding, darling. Top class breeding.
On second thought. I've just had an epiphany like St. Paul on the Road to Damascus. Stop the car.
I am very cross about this. Very, very, very cross indeed!
I deserve sympathy for the sins of my sordid past, not scorn. Those were difficult days; I was probably very confused and out of my mind on drink or drugs. It's not always about "good" and "evil", Scott dear.
I couldn't sleep after the traumas of the day. Tell me more about the world of chastity, Scott...
Well, that's very civil of you, Jean. Only you would use the word "terrific bunch" to dignify this horde of ghastly illiterates.
...but for now, he is her Dante, she his Beatrice. Think Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde...Tom and bloody Jerry. She'll grow out of it and her diary will be filled with regrets. That's the tragedy behind cupid's twanging, girls.
This will only be the third or so time you've had to bury her. It must be getting rather tedious, Scott dear. These reruns of your grief.
Oh, please. Don't try to blackmail me with genocide. Do you really want to compare notes? Where were the Avengers when Genosha died, Iron Man? Where were you when our babies were burning?
You remember Daredevil's old girlfriend? That psychotic Greek assassin with the very faint mustache?
Of course, "darling". I'm a Frost.
As you say, Shaw!
I don't want to hurt you, my dear. I want us to be...friends.
Nothing. You're perfect. Never change.
Dior, darling. Always Dior.
Don't gloat, child. It's a sign of poor upbringing.
Forgive me. Because I know...I never will.
The first thing one learns as a Telepath... hopefully... is to respect another person's boundaries. Even I learned that. Eventually.
Banal, predictable "shock shlock" that was passe in New York ten years ago.
I don't like Emma. She's a husband-stealer!
Yes indeed. And you also need a new uniform with some personal expression in it. Some art, some elan [to Armor].
You stick with Auntie Emma, Hisako. We'll have this planet eating out of your hand in no time at all.
I don't want to start some tedious argument, Ororo. But let's be clear. You miss them. You and I have never seen eye to eye on anything. And I am sick and tired of old team members denouncing me as an evil witch five minutes after they walk in the door, so --
Oh, for God's sake. Drink your tea and shut up, woman.
Emma: What is there to say? Put her down. Spider-Man: Put her down? What is she, a dog?
Why can't you just give up your place on the Olympic suffering team and relax with some wine and adultery?
You must forgive this absolutely appalling cat pee...not my choice, but the bellboy's.
Your pacifist posturing hides a playground bully, Jean Grey!
Shut up, Emma! I promise I won't throw big lightning bolts of psychic electricity at you this time.
She looks pretty dead to me...and quite frankly, good riddance. It's going to be hard narrow this down...nobody liked her.
When I was with Emma, it was like flying. I could say any outrageous thing. There was no pressure. She had no expectations. She just accepted everything about me...
You thought you could write the future, didn't you? You thought you had the magic formula. The secret recipe. But the future doesn't have a formula. It's all ad lib. All desperate improvisation in front of a dying audience in a room where the ceiling is about to fall in.
Being an X-Men means a lot to me. But it doesn't always agree with me.
Tell me, dear Walter, would you like the spend the rest of your life obsessed with the works of Leroy Neiman? I mean, sexually?
I was thirteen. When I think about evil, whenever I think about the concept of evil, yours is the face that I see.
Honestly, since for once you can’t actually interrupt, I have to ask: …Summers? Really? I know you wanted to cement your standing in the group, but if that geek was sharing my bed, I think I’d try not to wake up.
I really like Scott Summers and Emma Frost. I don’t care if she’s not actually British, she should be. She’d be a strict but fair Mum, although it’d be hard for her to tell a teenage daughter that they’re not going out dressed like that. And her strength and interest in happiness are actually far better for Scott than Jean’s investment in his angst. And she kept on dying and coming back, and what kind of absentee parent is that? Scott and Emma would have great kids.Actually, can we arrange to have this happen? In the current Marvel universe, I mean? I’d write that.
I've had quite enough of these painful emotions. I have no telepathic powers in diamond form. And no empathy, no compassion, just a cruel sense of humor and a cold, hard heart.
No, you’re Scott Summers. You like homework and vegetables.
Poor puppy, don't you remember? You don't have any claws.
This, children, is Kitty Pryde, who apparently feels the need to make a grand entrance.
And that brings me to Jean Grey, the most gifted psychic I've ever encountered...although I'd never say it to the cow's face.
'Everybody wants to know about the costume,' [Jones] says. I didn’t really know much about her beforehand, but when I did my research, she’s a very — specifically visually — iconic character. Nobody talks about the fact she’s got the most bad-ass powers.
(The Danger Room scene) also reminded people very visually of what Emma was talking about – that everyone can hate them.
Everyone just remembers the boobs and the outfit and the hair, but (Emma Frost) is not only telepathic, she turns into a diamond and it takes a lot of people to take her down. So people just need to remember that!
Bereavement always fills me with an unforgivable lust, darling.
Right, right. Base defilement. Jean Grey is a sacred cow. At least we agree on half of that.
You hit me pretty good.
You can’t have the Hellfire Club without Emma Frost. She is sexy and scary.
If the lot of you take much longer, I will publicly strip you of your 'genius' cards.
Of course I'm a threat. Why? Did you think for a moment I wasn't?
Dr. Rao, remind me to get you a dictionary for Christmas.
This is the X-Men, Mystique. Not Alcoholics Anonymous.
Hank is a genius, and terribly good with people. Warren looked like a god. And Xavier picks you? To lead. Why? Because you had nothing else.
She was Shaw's partner - in terms of the Hellfire Club; they weren't business associates. They might have had a relationship at some time, but the point was that they were equals; maybe he stood a little higher since he was the Black King. But I think the thing with Emma was that the reason she was the White Queen (and he was the Black King) was that to be the Black Queen would imply she was somehow subservient, a little subordinate to him. Her point was, 'I am not subordinate; I am equal. My White King will not be my superior any more than your good guy.'
