The Emma Frost that I remember from my days of comic collecting was an intriguing, alluring, and quite complex individual.  So, I was excited to get my hands on her origin; 3 graphic novels collecting material originally printed in a comic book limited series  I found the first book, collecting issues 1 through 6, to be quite disappointing.  We meet a high school aged Emma and her family.  Emma is discovering that she has some kind of unusual abilities, and she's discovering that the members of her family have assorted quirks and issues and secrets.  Unfortunately, nothing felt SPECIAL about it … I realize that an origin needs to set some background, but the characters feel like cardboard cut-outs; nothing that happens in the first 6 issues really feels surprising.  I expected more – and am glad I did not actually purchase 6 separate comic books to read the story to this point. My hope is that the second and third volumes offer more.  (SPOILER ALERT: They do.) P.S. For the record … a couple of positives: (1) The artist did manage to effectively capture an awkward high school girl lacking self-confidence who the reader knows is destined to be come an alluring self-confident beauty as she gets older.  (2)  This collection of pre-published comics is not simply a reprint of the first/next X books in the series – there is a theme to the comics reprinted here, and a clear conclusion to the story when we hit the end of the last comic in the collection. RATING: 2.5 stars, rounded down to 2 stars where necessary.

Emma Frost was one of my favorite X-Men character, but I like Shadowcat better though. I like this one better than the 'Mind Games' because she learns some things and she regonized that there's somethings wrong, and that she protects her brother, and she learns some things from her teacher, and she starts beoming a women in 'Mind Games' one. And I love the dress she worn. It matches her personality.

Emma Frost, the White Queen has intrigued readers since she first appeared in X-Men. Strong, confident, and beautiful, she used her telepathy to get what she wanted. But it wasn¿t always so. This graphic takes us back to the time Emma was a shy, brown haired, frumpy, flat chested school girl, full of fear and insecurity, with a horribly controlling family. Just how controlling that family is, in particular, her father, is revealed over the course of the graphic. The family bickering, backstabbing, and betrayal is worse than any `80¿s soap opera. As Emma gains her mental powers and confidence, it will be all she can do to survive. Higher Learning collects Emma Frost #1-6 in digest form, and is perfect for teen readers. The writing is solid and the art is pretty decent. Some of the content makes it more suitable for older teens instead of younger ones, however. Because this book isn¿t mired in continuity, it can easily be enjoyed by long time comic readers or newcomers. Recommended.
