Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Initially, I was thinking that if Moira justifiably believed that each rebirth resulted in erasure of prior timelines, then she’d get a moral “reboot” with every life. After all, if that prior life “never happened,” then the harms done have no moral weight. She could use each timeline as a trial run...

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Yes that's a great explanation why I love this. It's odd I didn't care for Morrison's work as much, but I think that's partially because Morrison's work felt like it had a fairly negative, cynical slant, whereas Hickman's feels more hopeful and positive somehow. But I still recognize Morrison's imp...

I hate advertising. I think it’s an aesthetic blight on the world. I would prefer un-targeted ads just because I won’t want to contribute my information to the further advancement of this dark art.

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Comparisons have been drawn between Hickman's issues so far and Morrison's New X-Men, but I think they're mostly to how fresh it all feels. I think it’s more than that. Hickman, like Morison, is looking at mutants as the basis for a science-fiction story. He’s asking the question, what would a soci...

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Interesting theories above me... I think, since we are putting them out there, that all of this is Moira's 10th life and I think what she learns there will be what her 11th life is and that will be the place that the world of the books takes place after this is all done. Will Moira XI be 616, or a ...

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

I like the idea that PoX is Moira IX and HoX is Moira X on 616 only if Charles and Moira don’t have all this future knowledge available to them the whole time. Retconning all of 616 with future knowledge is too big a leap.

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

After this issue, I'm beginning to doubt Powers of 10 is set in the 616 at all. Apocalypse leading the X-Men and Magneto always knowing what happens and always in league with Charles doesn't fit. Maybe this is Moira's 6th life. Would explain why she immediately went to kill Trasks in her 7th life. ...

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

I think it’s safe to say the life of Moira X, shown in Powers of X, is not the 616 universe. (Assuming branching timelines from Moira’s rebirths). The Moira-Charles-Erik triumvirate cannot retcon effectively into 616, even with the most generous reading of the past issues. I think its still possibl...

Powers of X #6 comes out on my birthday. The greatest gift the world could give me is not needing to read PoX anymore. Wow. That’s strong stuff. I like this title. It’s a bit dry, but I like how it’s building the world. FWIW, HoX/PoX #2 are the first X-Men comics I’ve bought when it was released as...

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,...
