Re: Random Thoughts

It‘s indeed an interesting question. From a psychological point of view, a profile pic (unless it‘s a random pre-set avatar) says something about the poster who chose it. It doesn‘t neccesarily have to be in tune with their current personality, it could just be their favorite character, or maybe it ...

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Moira’s choices in her last, permanent life have no different moral dimensions than our own choices in our real, last permanent lives. We learn what we can from our past experiences, and make the best moral choice we can, accepting that there are unseen costs and collateral consequences. Moira also...

Re: Ramifications of [House of X #2 SPOILERS]

Nathan, you're not the only one to voice that theory about Moira's ninth life. I think Majestic brought it up first, and it's since been talked about a lot in the thread about Powers of X #2: https://unstablemolecules.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9194 Also, could you please not turn this into yet another...

X-Men Unlimited #9 in a Belasco related story. In the end, the island was destroyed and its remains were sucked into the N'Garai dimension.

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

The island was raised from the ocean ground in #147. Lee and Scott are stranded on a deserted island and fall asleep, the next morning, there's this second island just one mile off the shore and Lee clearly says that it wasn't there the day before. It's also further established in UXM #148 that the ...

Checking Magneto's spotlight entry I found that he indeed returned to the isalnd in New Mutants #24 with Lee Forrester. I had forgotten about that. By that time, Xavier was fully walking again, though.

I love how these Hickman issues keep me thinking, trying to figure out the meaning of all the little details and guessing the overall picture. I flipped through the four issues once more and again noted something I hadn't given much thought about before. When Moira sought out Magneto in her eighth l...

Could mean maybe were seeing multiple Moira timelines in PoX, wich makes it even more confusing to pinpoint everything.

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

By the way, the next issue blurbs translate as
Spoiler: show
"This is what you do" and "Once more unto the breach". Both seem Moira related, the first being her in talks with someone about their plan, the second is possibly the step from life 9 to life 10.

Yes, that's the one. That building in the front by the coastline with the huge statue in front of it was also shown in the opening pages of UXM #148.

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Overall, this issue didn't excite me as the three before, but I guess it would have been really hard to compete with last week's shocker. The useage of the Bermuda Island is intriguing. It sort of narrows the time frame for that meeting of Moira, Mags and Xavier to have occured namely somewhen betwe...

True, but either way, her actions have consequence for someone, either for the people in those timelines if they continue to move on even after her death, or for the people in that one timeline she keeps rebooting time and again, once Moira's lived her final life and history settles on the version o...

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

What's more, while Moira has had many lifetimes, her existence is still totally linear. From her perspective, any suffering caused in any iteration before her final loop will never occur, and therefore has no moral weight. But if that erased suffering improves life on Earth in/after the final loop,...

FlatscAnnie had a Mutant son, IIRC, so her's weren't entirely altruistic motives. Val Cooper is most times pro, but sometimes con, depending on her status with the government. Other than Kavita Rao and Stevie Hunter, I can hardly think of anyone who wasn't either a girlfriend of a member (Trish Tilb...

Funny thing, I read somewhere else in a review that the "lost decade" comment might just be an outside of the story joke, with Hickmann refering to everything from Morrison's run till now, which is slightly more than a decade's worth of X-Men runs (Austen, Claremon, Bendis, Rosenberg, to name a few)...

Re: Ramifications of [House of X #2 SPOILERS]

I don't think that Ugly John works as a comparison. His power is always "on", same as everyone else's with a physcal mutation, like Archangel. At least in the early days, mutants needed to be manifesting or using their powers for Cerebro to register them, like Kitty Pryde and Dazzler in UXM #129 and...

So here's something else I thought about: - According to the chart, the tenth Moira faked her death with a Shi'Ar golem, whatever that is. Apparently something that will seem very much like the real deal. It might actually be similar to that artificial Stuff creature who was part of the Imperial Gua...

Re: Ramifications of [House of X #2 SPOILERS]

Oh, and as Moira helped build Cerebro, she just might have made sure that it wouldn't detect her. Then again, that wouldn't explain why she never was registered by a Sentinel, so I guess the never-activated power explanation is the better one.

Re: Ramifications of [House of X #2 SPOILERS]

IIRC, Cerebro reads mutants when their powers activate. Moira's power acivates upon her death, so until then the machine has nothing to detect.

The bit about the "passive particpant" is from the text page right before the scene I quoted above.

She recalled spe...

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

If she's actually not creating alternate timelines, that means Moira un-created her entire family--three children and eight grandchildren--and has made no moves to bring them back. It's a chilling prospect to think about. But she did try, it's just that it didn't work. It's mentioned in her second ...
