Bleeding Cool pointed out that the vampires of Marvel Comics, like the X-Men, will be getting their own nation, based in Chernobyl in Ukraine. A place abandoned by humanity, where radiation does not affect them. We have seen this in The King In Black, Bleeding Cool has teased this will be coming in Avengers – just before the entire vampire population is Thanos-clicked away in Heroes Reborn. And in today's Wolverine, this comes from mutant vampire Omega Red.
Establishing Chernobyl as the new vampire homeland.
And very much being created on the model of Krakoa for the mutants.
While in Children Of The Atom #2, joining Krakoa for the Belles seems an impossible thing. While Storm faces down Captain America…
The Bells talk about their problems with Krakoa, even if they would be accepted without powers. This is written by Vita Ayala, who is writing the upcoming Krakoan X-Men comic, The Trial. Given the content of depowered mutants here, might this underline the Bleeding Cool speculation that The Trial will concern the Pretender, Wanda Maximoff and the way she is deminised by Krakoian mutants, being set up in The Way Of X? Could be.
But it's not a place for the Young X-Men, the Children Of The Atom, as they still appear to be appropriating mutant identities for their own reasons.
Krakoan envy extends beyond the mutant books, with Black Cat #5 dropping knowledge about Krakoan medicine being a thought after thing. Extending lifespan, curing dementia and a universal antibiotic. They aren't miracel cures however.
And Wolverine is continuing his own vampire genocide, using his own double-dicks to quell the flames…

I bought my copy from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, with an extensive back issue collection and online store. With a new store planned for Watford, if you are in the neighbourhood, check them out. Call ahead, they are offering curbside service for the next two weeks until non-essential retail stores open up.
