Yes, for me too. Before she was revealed as Jean Grey's clone during 'Inferno' she was a supporting character with open possibilities - although human that didn't stop her from being a very interesting character to watch, she was interesting in the same was Claremont's powerless Storm was interesting to follow. Or Sean Cassidy. Or Moira McTaggart. Or any number of Claremont's other supporting cast...

I don't know whether Maddie was sustainable longterm, the idea of a Jean Grey lookalike and Scott's human ex-wife floating around the x-men universe into the 1990s and beyond is a little hard to conceive, the moment Jean came back Maddie was awkward and redundant baggage. But reflecting back to the days before the 'Inferno' reveal sealed her fate, and she subsequently became all-villain, one-dimensional demoness, she was an interesting and likable character. She found her niche briefly in the Outback era and you can see her as potentially being developed as the X-Men's pilot and admin. Base co-ordinator and personal confidante..


I think the X-Men need to associate more with non-powered humans in general. Kind of seems like that fits with the message of mutants and normal humans Coexisting in peace.

But Maddie herself. It was interesting to see her journey. She was a normal woman thrown into all this chaos (we did not she was a clone yet), and it was interesting to see her react to being pushed and pulled with all the craziness around her.

She was abandoned by her husband, faked her death, never really fit with the X-Men, despite making herself useful.

By the time she became the Goblin Queen, you really understood how that could happen to her, it may not have been right, but she had been pushed and pulled so muck it made sense. Her story was a tragedy, and while you didn't agree with what she ultimate did, you could at least sympathize with how she could get to that position.
