My name is Quentin Quire, mutant freedom fighter and future leader of the X-Men! I have come here today not to bury humankind but to merely make them wish that they were dead.
No more will we, your superiors in every conceivable way, allow you and your pathetic politicians to wallow in lies like pigs in excrement.
This time around, the revolution will not be televised. The revolution will be telepathic.
I won't lie to you, ladies and gentlemen, this is going to hurt.The truth always does.
I want him to care. Because everything that’s wrong with Jason Aaron’s Quentin is based in the fact that Aaron makes Q this apathetic slacker and he was never ever that before. I want more of his passion to shine through! He was a mutant terrorist because he was passionate about making the world safer for mutants and preventing any more hate crimes. He staged the attack on the UN because he was passionate about exposing anti-mutant politicians for who they really were. He became the person he is because was sick of being lied to.
Quentin’s passion and intelligence is what makes him different than the people who only say “fuck the police” because they want to smoke weed in public. Jason Aaron doesn’t seem to understand the difference between someone legitimately interested in making the world a better place and someone just trying to start shit for the sake of starting shit. And that’s really fucking insulting.
There are so many real people in this world who understand the nature of oppression and are pissed off. There are so many kids who are shut as being inexperienced and not knowing the truth even though they do and I want them to have a voice in Marvel comics. Why shouldn’t that voice belong to Quentin Quire?
The Phoenix found him the first time because of his passionate feelings for Sophie. The Phoenix comes for passionate people first and foremost. Quentin’s drive and pragmatism combined with how deeply he felt things were what really marked him as the kind of person who could do amazing things with the Phoenix. It was also what made him an interesting character.
So we have Jason Aaron giving us pseudo-punk slacker sk8r-boi Quentin and we’re supposed to believe that we’re looking at a potential Phoenix host?
I want Quentin to fight for what’s important to him and I want him to be taken seriously, at any cost. If he’s going to become a teacher, I want him to do whatever it takes to protect his students. I want him to teach them things they actually need to know to survive and I want him to pass along his passion to them and be the person he always needed but didn’t have. I want him to take his students seriously and actually believe that they can change the world.
I want the world to know that just because you’re older doesn’t mean your passion has to die. I want Quentin’s perspective that comes with aging to make him more passionate, not a sellout. People always say “if you’re not a socialist at 16, you have no heart but if you’re still a socialist at 60, you have no brain.” I want Quentin to prove them wrong.
On a note that doesn’t relate to my personal life, I want more from Quentin Quire as a character.
Like I want the fact that he used to be a terrorist and a murderer and a really fucked up kid to come bite him in the ass.
Like, if he’s going to be a secret goody-two-shoes now, (which I don’t really want, I wish they would drop the fake anarchist act and use him to call out ACTUAL issues) I at least want him to have to face the repercussions of who he used to be.
I want the other kids at the school to find out about the Omega Gang, or Quentin’s time in lock-up. I want Quentin’s fuckin’ parents to be brought up again, like what the fuck, did they not alert them that their son is NO LONGER DEAD? I want Quentin to be a real threat again. He’s an omega level telepath who’s on the track to being Phoenix!! I want him to smoke cigarettes and make homemade smoke bombs and molotov cocktails in his bedroom.

…..Shut up, it’s totally one word….maybe it should be hyphenated—I-D-K.
I’ll have to see it to believe it.
No idea. I lost track of him when my father came to visit. I think he went somewhere? I’m not sure though.
How is Daddiator, by the way?
Hm, well, be on the look-out for him.
