Krakoan X-Men Today: Telling Tales Of Storm Before The Hellfire Gala

Welcome to Krakoa Today! The Hellfire Gala is almost upon us, but some mutants and X-Men are prepared than others. In Hellions #11, Mister Sinister may have the look down pat, but he may need to have some face work done first.

Hellfire Gala

If only to deal with the botched job he most recently suffered at the hands of a certain Arcade. And to stop everyone announcing him as Mishter Shinishter. Still, maybe he'll like the whole Sean Connry aspect of the thing.

Hellfire Gala

In X-Men: Curse Of The Man Thing, the Quiet Council are sitting around discussing what Storm can do… with Mister Sinister sporting a decent set of choppers now.

Hellfire Gala

While in Marauders #20, we have a bit of a "bottle episode" as everyone also sits around the table, talking about Storm – but in this case drinking as well.

Hellfire Gala

While Sebastian Shaw, denied a Crucible death-and-resurrection is rocking his own look – and remember Lourdes.

Hellfire Gala

We heard that the next issue of Marauders will reprint her first – and only appearance – from a Classic X-Men back-up strip.

And somehow being resurrrected even though her death preceded the setting up of back-up protocols?

We also noted Kitty Pryde's silver bullet-brooch from the Hellfire Gala designs and its similarity to a certain bullet ship that Kade Pryde was stuck, phased inside for aeons.

Hellfire Gala

It's weirder than Jesus turning up wearing a crucifix, right?

Hellfire Gala

While it seems Krakoan lawyers might want to start working on trademarks. We know they have been creating a variety of fastball specials – well The Union seems have their own British variant on the classic.

We play rugby over baseball, I guess…

8Years ago, DOCTOR TED SALLIS was ready to give up anything to crack the SO-2 serum and deliver success to his growing family. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world…he did. Today, as cities spanning from the U.S. to Krakoa are besieged  by fear-driven blazes, the MAN-THING must reckon with his past deeds if he hopes to emerge renewed and rescue a world on fire. But fighting from his lowest means that Man-Thing can rise to his highest, especially with the unexpected help of the X-MEN'S resident sorceress MAGIK and her debuting team of monstrous mutants known as THE DARK RIDERS!
