Planet Sized X-Men #1

Post by Blackcyclops » 16 Jun 2021, 11:34

So Mercator IS Mr.M! Cool beans…

Also, Magneto really is the coolest…like he might not be my favorite Marvel character of all time but damn, when Magneto is good, he’s f***ing good!

Is this an ongoing series or a one shot?

I wasn’t too far off with the general plot although I am beginning to understand why the rest of the MU is slowly getting wary of the X-Men.

Ahhh ok.

This was basically the X-Men equivalent of your mother-in-law suddenly moving in with you…putting up with her for a few weeks until she drives you nuts…and then finding her a nice place to live somewhere far away so she isn’t getting in your way…

I actually loved how they did it…the great combo of powers and how it was really all Mag’s idea. It makes sense that the guy who made Asteroid M, Avalon and took over Genosha would take the next step…a mutant world.

This was one I really had to reaffirm to myself that this is a comic book. As a geologist the concept of giving Mars a fully functional magnetic core and essentially turning it into a second Earth was a bit hard to chew. It’s not as bad as the film The Core though, which makes my nose bleed when I watch it.

Aside from that I wonder what the endgame is here. I can only see friction start to build between the two planets.

This was really interesting. I kind of hope we’re going to get a book for this, or at least that this is where SWORD goes next. This was really well-written, it was beautifully drawn, and I really loved the Arrako mutants’ powers— the concepts and the visuals were just crazy cool, especially the terra-forming mutant (although admittedly I’m not REALLY sure why Magma didn’t get to make a brief cameo here, but that’s not really important).

This was great, I just hope that such a grand gesture also keeps being followed up on in other titles.

So guessing it was Mars made habitable again was correct.

And I understand Captain America's remark to Cyclops now that this solves one problem (less mutants on earth) but creates a lot of more new ones.

Because for starters this angers the big human country leaders like USA, Russia and China because they wanted be the first to settle on Mars. Now its taken by Mutants.

Hickman is really changeing the whole Marvel Universe, with the X-men front and center in changeing it.

I completeley enjoyed this, but i have two questions regarding "Omega" mutants powers, because we are supposed to make a big deal about only Omega's being involved in this, maybe im beeing too obtuse, but Magma could have helped a lot here instead of Vulcan, and also Iceman could have solved all the need for water, not just putting ice, though i very much preffer that cool mutant with water for blood.

Finnaly, what, if anything, did Exodus do?

My reasoning is that other mutants, besides the Omegas, coulda have been involved in this.

The idea is that Omegas just have more power.

While Magma’s power is great, the implication is that they just aren’t great enough. I don’t know if Magma’s power was great enough? Not saying that as an excuse but a genuine question about if Magma’s powers are that powerful. Vulcan basically blasted down thousands (millions?) of miles to Mars’ core. Pulling up magma isn’t the same since lava isn’t that far down, relatively speaking. Vulcan like basically was able to blast clean through the planet. That’s imo a step above Magma but I could be wrong.

Also, Iceman would have been able to create alot of frozen water and then possibly melt it (he hasn’t shown that level of control on that scale yet) but Arakii like literally gave them a whole ocean and if “ecosystem” means what I think it means, it means it was more than just fresh water but a composite of complex chemicals in the water to help sustain an ecosystem.

I’m starting to wonder if maybe this is the start of the X-Men (or at least those who know of Moira’s knowledge) starting to change things from her previous life— we’ve had it stated previously in HOX/POX that the Khennils for the hound programme were based on Mars (right?)— it seems like making that the Arakki home world would be a move specifically to negate this from happening.

The more I think about this issue, the more I like it. It’s as ballsy as the start of this era for the X-Men and it sends a CLEAR message to the rest of the world, if not the universe, that the X-Men are okay with being apart from the rest of humanity, but what they won’t tolerate being seen as an easy threat any more. That they achieved this, directly under the nose of the rest of the entire human race and their intelligence networks? Nick Fury could NEVER. Tony Stark WISHES he could. Kang the Conqueror WHO?

And the thing that I love more, is that the mutants powers lies in the community.

@BC: I agree with you, and like I said I much prefer the introduction of this water arakki mutant, over Iceman doing everything. This was poetic, along with the one that terrraformed it.

I really loved it as well, very impressive way to terraform Mars and almost scientifically how you would do it in the far future if you were able to do so.

I could always see the Mutants being able to make Mars habitable and the part where Xilo appears to sacrifice himself to terraform Mars reminded me of the Engineers in Alien Prometheus. Magneto states that Mars once supported life? did they actually find any? Personally I don't think Mars was large enough to support the creation of life like Earth and possibly Venus as it's also to far away from the sun. Would they possibly be able to terraform Venus as well in the same manner?

Magma may have been a better choice than Vulcan as she could control the Lava flow and ensure it was stable.

Can see this causing a lot of fear in the Governments of the world and an accelerated arms race.

Venus would be much harder than Mars. They might be better off going for one of Jupiter's moons instead.

So, that female mutant has to be the best andote powerful teleporter we've seen so far, right? She teleported everything in Arrako and Arrako itself.

The problem is scale, could Magma affect an entire planet with her control? Vulcan essentially, as I stated above, punched a hole through to a planet’s core. Like we have nothing on Earth right now that could accomplish such a feat. The amount of energy Vulcan had to be releasing like actually is mind-blowing.

This is the first time I'm learning Franklin isn't a mutant and... I am disappoint. It was nice having a powerful mutant outside of the clutches of Krakoa. It gave interesting story potential.

Anyways! This was cool! I always appreciate it when, outside of a bit of reality warping, things are done with actual science in mind. Mars has been our best potential as a new home for humanity because it's theoretically possible. It's in the right place and it has the necessary bits that just require a bit of a jump start to get things going.

I thought Hope amplified powers? Although, I understand it’s relative to their natural power level, and Magma isn’t an omega level mutant (but shouldn’t she be? Are there any other characters that have a similar powerset to her but scaled up? Hm. I feel an X-Pressions thread on the horizon).
