Yes, and I dropped the comic shortly after that chapter.

Are you seriously not seeing how that'sa horrible thing to say to your actual daughter? That's the same shit, Norman Osborn would say to Peter Parker, because he'd wishes Peter was his son instead of Harry.
Also, you're tellingly leaving out the full context of the scene. They said that as they called for a "family hug" and intentionally leaving out Naomi, that speaks volumes. And of course Gabrielle rubs salt on that would, giving Naomi a raspberry as they hug Gabrielle.
A blind man can see their being horrible to their own daughter.

This gives me slight hope for the Soon-ish™ swift return of my favourite EC-verse comic... Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?
brasca wrote:I'm not sure why Tandy thinks there is some sexual tension between Gabrielle and Naomi, but she's an expert observer so she probably sees something she doesn't. Considering what she just said about the pictures of Teddy and her dates she may be bisexual, but seeing as how Tandy was in the belly of the beast and not enthralled I think it's safe to say Tandy is heterosexual.
None taken. But I don't need to be an authority on DC to be familiar with Gabrielle's character, since she's from MC which I've re-read several times.
The Norman/Harry/Peter analogy doesn't work, because we have context with their situation. We've been given story arcs and two films that've shown us how eff'd up the Osborne family is.
With Naomi and her family, all we got was one scene, which you're jumping to conclusions about. We only have Naomi's side of the story, we have yet to hear her parents' side of things.
But who's fault is that really? What if they said that about Prudence who would do nothing to undermine Naomi's standing with her family. Would you blame her too? While Gabrielle probably turned on the charm to win over her foster parents the fact that they would call her the daughter they wish they had is really more a deficiency of their own than hers. That being said I don't think Gabrielle is a good person since she delights in interrogating people through torture so she probably enjoys bullying Naomi without provocation too.

Cortez wrote:But that's MC, not DC. So it's pretty much irrelevant, especially since Gabrielle ends up getting more focus here.

And here is said page, as a reference:
Which is beside the point, unless her character has changed drastically in DC, which she hasn't. Her personality's still the same here as it was in MC.
Yes, I've seen it. Several times.
