- Marvel's Krakoan saga heats up with Fall Of X and mutant rights protests.

- Ms. Marvel confronts Orchis as Kingpin's ties to mutants and Krakoa deepen.
- Revelations from Realm Of X hint at a complex return for the Vanaheim mutants.
Marvel's Krakoan X-Men story heads towards its final conclusions with Fall Of X in today's X-Men Infinity Unlimited #115, Ms Marvel: The New Mutant #4, Realm Of X #4, X-Men Origins: Blue, while Howard The Duck has its own New Mutant experience. X-Men Origins: Blue gives us a little bit of exposition courtesy of the unidentified Bamf illusion/spirit/interloper from Uncanny Spider-Man as it delves into the new origin of Nightcrawler, Mystique and Destiny…
While in Ms Marvel: The New Mutant #4, Kamala Khan meets the Omega Sentinel who carried out that attack.
Kingpin's participation and facilitation of the X-Men, the remaining mutants, and keeping the assets of Krakoa away from Sebastian Shaw is founded upon his marriage and love for Typhoid Mary, who he believes was either killed by Orchis or is somewhere unknown to him. Today's Realm Of X suggests that when the mutants who went to Vanaheim return…
… it may be a little more complicated. At least Wilson Fisk will have something in common with Peter Parker.
Ms Marvel is fighting Orchis, who are hiding under the Empire State University grounds, without wanting to get the X-Men involved…
Mystique has her own battles with Orchis, who handily put their logo on their big ships which makes it a lot easier to find.
X-Men Infinity Unlimited #115 has people campaigning for mutant rights against Orchis…
…which makes a nice change as to how they are behaving at Empire State.
But it turns out it's all a fake protest for Orchis' own ends, while Nightcrawler…
… is still being hunted.
Orchis may have a setback, as Realm Of X gives a prophesy of what is to come.
Is the white room, the White Hot Room, the foundation of the Phoenix, where most of the mutants – and Krakoa – ended up, courtesy of Mother Righteous? What is the future of the X-Men?
Presumably, this isn't it.
I doubt Mystique has this prophesied from Destiny…
It's all coming to an end…
