Hope Summers, a Better Shot Than Jesus – Immortal X-Men #2 Spoilers

Immortal X-Men is giving Kieron Gillen the chance to play with Mister Sinister again, and Hope summers too. Everyone else, like Exodus, Selene and Emma Frost is just gravy. He gave us a Mister Sinister who has weaponised Moira MacTaggert's power with a chimera of himself, that can reset all reality, the universe over, so he can look better in meetings. And now he has a bunch more patches to add to his own operating system, when it comes to fighting big monsters on the island.

Still, these are mutants, everyone gets resurrected these days. And we also find another use of the mysterious metallic ingredient created by Krakoa and Arakko and now used as currency the galaxy over, Mysterium. It's basically a physical form of bitcoin, and makes slightly more sense.

So kill Selene, so then you can resurrect her again on Krakoa… but this time in a more vulnerable state.

KKKK is up there as a sound effect with this one, I think… subtle, small, but enough to bring much meaning.

Exodus has already told us that Jesus was a mutant. It just means that Hope Summers is better than Jesus Christ –  in Exodus' eyes that is. Also, Hope Summers Vs Abigail Brand. It's going to have to happen at some point, right? After all, she just killed her dad…
