Another fanfic question

Post by Angelique » Tue Dec 27, 2005 9:34 pm

I need to know if any of the X-Men comic books have any courtroom scenes, because I'm about to write some fairly detailed courtroom drama, and before I get too far ahead of myself, I want to know if it will be more or less in touch with canon.

There was a scene in X-Men Evolution like that, though I forget which episode. For best results, though, try movies like "Class Action" and "A Civil Action." Edge of your seat thrillers!

I'm not basing my fic on Evoverse, however. As for legal drama in general, my husband is addicted to those shows.

I think there was a court-type scene with Juggy and She-Hulk towards the end of Austen's run on Uncanny, issue #435 or 436? I believe She-Hulk acted as Cain's attorney. Hope that helps.

umm... *headscratch*

i know that there was a time when Magneto was taken to court (in comic-verse when he was in charge of the New Mutants?) sometime in the eighties to answer for what he did when he was in charge of the brotherhood - i can't remember which though X- Fan may have something about that as they have thousands of issue summaries and character bios and stuff, here's the URL:

Failing that, there's always the She-Hulk series - i think one issue is online at Marvel.com so you could have a look there - plenty of legal-ese in a superheroic vein.

The Trial of Magneto was held in Uncanny X-Men #200 (December 1985)
