Re: Selene and Apocalypse

Has Selene had any kind of contact with Apocalypse ever and, if so, around which titles/issues? For some reason in my head I feel like they might have but I'm also not sure if I'm getting mixed up with something else. BITD there was some effort to shoehorn them both into the Externals with Gideon, ...

Re: Random Thoughts

Thanks for taking the time to explain and share. I’m not Wiccan. Wicca traces its roots to the mid 20th century where it just plucked from whatever it felt like— various ancient faiths and customs and practices, but mostly folklore from the UK. If there are people who find comfort and faith in Wicca...

Re: Powers of X #6 (SPOILERS)

I confess, Xavier’s physical disability has never struck me as particularly significant to the character, even back in Claremont’s run. But Nathan’s comments here and over at house to astonish are thought provoking. I recall how frustrated he was when his Shi’ar cloned body still couldn’t walk. And ...

Re: SPOTLIGHT ON...DR. KAVITA RAO

Ok, in the issue checklist and in the article it says she “deals with a mutant pandemic on Utopia” back in UXM #29-30. Y’know, in 1964. In the issue where Mimic fights the Super Adaptoid.

That’s either a major retcon, or a error.

I know details on this are sparse but I was thinking about the whole premise of this recently. Im wondering if this series is more about the Vision than Wanda. At the end of Infinity War, Vision’s body was destroyed but not before Shuri attempted to remove the mind stone from his head. What if she ...

I still really want to see how Xavier and Magneto sold their plan to the X-Men, especially now that it is known that they don’t know of Moria’s existence/influence. It might explain why we haven’t seen characters like Rogue, Gambit or Kitty who might have a problem with the new status quo. Yes, thi...

Re: Powers of X #6 (SPOILERS)

It's interesting to me that there was really doubt about the nature of Moira's powers. Taking it at face value, it was always meant to be a reset. The entire story hinged on Moira just hitting reset and trying again. Nothing was ever said about reality jumping. I guess there's always speculation, b...

And nothing suggested that they think they don’t need her anymore. They do tell her, literally, to "step aside" though. Yes, they throw some praise her way first, but they dismiss all of her concerns out of hand, seem to have been doing that for many years, and then after telling her to relax and e...

Re: Powers of X #6 (SPOILERS)

I think it is established though...the Librarian says as much that Moira’s death ends a timeline and then it restarts at her birth. That’s a HUGE power set. And using the argument that “another writer can retcon it” is overtly cynical (or optimistic) and imo an easy out. I can, and wholeheartedly b...

As for the retcon to Charles’ and Erik’s motivations, I find Hickman’s solution...unsatisfying but preferable to any of the theories we’ve been batting around. Basically, Charles And Erik just weren’t 100% sold on Moira’s plan, and so they kept on doing their own thing, while gestating the plan in ...

I’m just shocked that a guy who was so into cosmic hierarchy would really give Moira a power that isn’t reality jumping OR even time travel like people believed but is actually reality reset...that’s something that in his Avengers title would have 100% brought the attention of some cosmic entities....

Re: House of X #6 (SPOILERS)

I guess I’m still viewing this as a prelude, and when Hickman starts writing X-Men vol. whatever, there will be character-based stories instead of just scene setting.

But we’ll see. Or maybe you will. I’m planning to go back to buying just trades, after y’all review them for me,

There’s a third way to make more mutants: cloning.

I figure that’s what Kurt was referencing since that’s been at the heart of this whole series.

It is also pretty standard in any ethical justice system to not punish someone for breaking a law when it wasn't made a crime until after the fact. Well, yes and no.

Since the 12th member of the council is the Red King, I wondered if it might be a male character. Kate might be the Red Queen, but not sit in the council.

I’m figuring Bishop leads the Krakoan police, while Scott leads the military.

Re: Excalibur Teaser...

During the first 50+ issues of the original Excalibur run I never considered it an X-Title, any more than New Defenders was an X-Title.

Too many non-X-Men characters and themes.
