I agree, I can see Xaviers point of view and how he sees the world but where does the Moira X reveal come into all of this? at the start of HOX/POX we where led to believe Xavier was planning Krakoa all along and was only "playing for time"? it did leave a very bad impression of him and the comics in general.clayford wrote: ↑21 Jan 2023, 02:44Echoing Blackcyclops, as cool as the ending reveal is and as excited as I am for what comes next, Xavier's inner monologue is the most fantastic piece of character work I've seen since PAD had Quicksilver explain how slow the rest of the world is to him. The bit about how it's Xavier's dream and not Xavier's five year plan to me perfectly summed up how Krakoa has not been the fulfillment of what we were led for decades to believe Xavier's dream was. And the bit about CHOOSING who to bring in to the fold and who NOT to bring in, I NEVER thought Charles would acknowledge that.
The inner monologue though greatly improves upon this and is a fantastic insight into Xavier's mind but what is the end goal of Xaviers Dream? in his view. It's interesting in that he acknowledges how bad Magneto could be if he had his powers as in at least two of the movies his powers are used to destroy humanity and Magneto's warning to Storm about Xavier gets more weight here.
The part about choosing who and who not to though do wonder how much this was influenced by Moira X rather than Xavier?
If you think about all that has happened to him since Cassandra exposed his school to the world it does make sense he is trying to save his people and no longer worrying/caring about what humanity thinks, going as far as to threaten them to leave them alone. He does still want to live coexist peacefully but not at the cost of his people, Krakoa was inevitable due to the constant genocides and attacks against Mutants.
I love the idea he prevented a nuclear war so we no longer has to worry about humans trying to nuke there Island out of existence.
