The point of the Crucible is that the mutant, depowered by the Scarlet Witch on M-Day, sacrifices their life in order to be resurrected into a clone body with their powers back.

Now one might wonder why the mutants don't just create some Krakoan flower drug that causes a mutant to painlessly drift away so they can be reborn instead of literally beating them to death in an arena.

It's a barbaric practice, which makes it more suited to a comic like Conan the Barbarian. And coincidentally, The Crucible is happening in that comic right now as well.

Will we see Conan crawling out of an egg on Krakoa in the coming months? It would be a good way for Marvel to get him to even more comics if he were revealed to be a mutant. Conan the Barbarian #14 is in stores on Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
