We have seen previous issues of Inferno take earlier scenes from Powers Of X and House Of X that kicked off the Krakoan age of X-Men mutants, and reframe them with new information. In today's Inferno #3, we take a look back at those early issues again, such as this scene from Powers of X #4.
In Inferno #4, out today, we get to see it again, redrawn, reformatted, rephrased.
This is how it played out in Powers of X #4.
Now in Inferno #4, we get to see the House Of X from Doug Ramsey's perspective, and everything Charles Xavier showed him.
A bit more of a power play than just the initial House Of X Krakoan plans. Emphasis on "ascendance".
But with Doug Ramsey building in some safety features to Krakoa's way of working, because, yes, "ascendance" did sound a little House Of X fascisty.
He used Warlock to bug the entire island while giving the Quiet Council and Moira Mactaggert some fake security. Reminds me of the fake ANOM app created by Australian authorities and the FBI to catch scores of criminals. And he caught a big one, regarding the dead precognitive mutant Destiny.
Not the only dodginess he comes across on Krakoa either, of course, just some is stated openly.
Doug Ramsey, champion of liberty. You know, by spying on everyone. Even if it ends in everything burning down around him.
