Inferno #3 Reveals What Doug Ramsey Was Really Up To In House Of X

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.

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.
