Source: January Jones Confirms No Emma Frost In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
In a rare moment of uniformity and class, fans of Fox's X-Men: First Class cheered as they received the news that January Jones would not, I repeat – would not – be reprising her role as Emma Frost in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. January Jones, a nice piece of eye candy, was widely regarded as “the worst part of the movie” by, well, everyone. The outpouring of support for her departure came as quite a shock to industry insiders who had been relying on the belief that comic book fans prefer watching any half-naked female over a half-naked female with actual talent as long as she was attractive.
“What is this?” asked one studio exec who doesn’t exist, “Did all the trolls leave their basements and actually talk to a real life woman? Since when do fanboys care if a hot woman can act?”
For my part, I am proud of the internet comic book community. Recently, we have moved past reliance on tits and ass to keep us engaged in a bad comic book. There is even some sort of online campaign going on right now to get Supergirl some clothes. This shows immense growth on all our parts….oh, sorry I have to go now; I just received an email stating that the Daily Kate Upton picture is up.

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
