I honestly don’t ship Raven and Erik at all.
I think Erik is pretty good at giving people what they need to be strong - that’s one of the big reasons people follow him - and that’s what the kiss was about.
He’s meeting Raven on her own terms, because physicality is extremely important to her (a fact which is related to her mutation) so words simply wouldn’t have been enough.
I really like this idea. It also explains why Mystique seems to circle back to Magneto any time she’s not actively with someone else — for validation and companionship, not because either of them have any delusions that they’re each other’s One True Love.
I haven’t heard this before about physicality and her mutation, that I recall. I can see the physicality now that I think about it (snuggling against Charles on the couch, sitting on Hank’s lap, the nudity thing could be a way of increasing contact with her surroundings, etc.) but why is it related to her mutation? Other than her mutation being, of course, a very physical one, rather than an invisible/mental one like Charles’s or Erik’s.
