Anonymous said: Favorite thing about Axl and Jewel Man?
Axl: His appeal, for me anyway, is that he’s got one of the more balanced personalities as far as MMX characters go. Yeah, he’s the newbie Cousin Oliver trope everyone loves to hate, except that he’s supremely competent with laser focus. He’s troubled by his lack of memories from before a certain point - we know next to nothing about him - but he’s not consumed by this. He doesn’t brood. He puts his malaise aside to focus on the present. And like, sure, he adds a kind of cutesy levity to the X series with youth and bravado, but his upbeat personality isn’t jarring; it’s tempered by his share of mystery and tragedy. People like to pretend he’s like this out of control kid, but really, how many times has he actually not taken his work seriously?
Jewel: This is really shallow, but the white, pink, and light blue color combination sums it up. It’s like, “Yooooo check out this Robot Master! It was made for me!”
