And now let’s think about something supernatural including 7 female and 7 male characters – and of course including some love story, so we can add it to OpenBookSociety Valentine-month theme.
What did I choose? The ‘X-Men’ series, of course. There are lots of supernatural beings and there is also a lot of love – and of course also lots of jealousy. The love-triangle between Wolverine, Phoenix and Cyclops, the love that Rogue has to Wolverine and last, but not least, the love Professor Charles Xavier has to all of his ‘kids’.
