Much has been made of Cyclops being involved in a throuple or threesome on Krakoa with Jean Grey and Wolverine. Mostly by Bleeding Cool, to be fair. But is it possible that someone misheard Scott Summers and what he really, really wanted was a treehouse? In today's X-Men #1 by Gerry Duggan (doing his very best Jonathan Hickman impersonation) and the utter gorgeousness of Marvel's premier artist Pepe Larraz, Scott gets his wish.
The new New York headquarters of the X-Men, on land bought by Emma Frost and grown by Krakoa overnight. Well, if they can terraform a planet in a few hours, a new HQ in Manhattan should be even easier, though they didn't have to deal with local planning laws on Mars.
And Scott Summers is happy to share his giddiness with Ben Urich.
And with Polaris. Of course, this is not actually the first time he's had a treehouse. Remember Uncanny X-Men #495?
Though maybe his treehouse in the Savage Land is not one he'd want to bring up with Jean Grey. Especially since Emma Frost is partially responsible for this one as well. What will she want for the use of her money?
Wolverine over in X-Force has his own issues with vegetation too.
Everyone in Krakoa is obsessed with treehouses today, it seems. And as for that mention of Seneca Gardens? A reference to a parallel of history. And a reminder of what the X-Men comics work as an allegory for.
X-Men #1 is published by Marvel Comics today. There are lots of covers.
