Mystique – Death And A Fate Worse Than That (Avengers/X-Men Spoilers)
Today sees the publication of Immoral X-Men #2 and Avengers Forever #15 and neither go well for Mystique, Raven Darkholme.
Today sees the publication of Immoral X-Men #2 showing a Mister Sinister version of events in a hundred years time, and the final issue of Avengers Forever #15, showing a Multiversal Masters of Evil from down the probability axis. And neither go well for Mystique, Raven Darkholme, mother of Nightcrawler and wife of Destiny. Spoilers of course, because…
…in Avengers Forever it is revealed that Mystique is the Dark Phoenix of that particular timeline, even though she wears Destiny's mask and resembled the Kitty Pryde of the Nazi Excalibur timeline. Oh, and also Raven from Teen Titans. Naughty Marvel. What happened to Destiny we don't know. In previous Sins Of Sinister, we learned that Destiny was keeping the Sins Of Sinister timeline going because it was one in which Mystique lived. But in a hundred years time, that may not be the case, as the 120 year old Commander Hope revealed…
…might Destiny have something new to say about this timeline now? Because in Mystique's timeline from Avengers Forever, it appears that she has moved on to another partner who wears a mask.
No kink-shaming now here, okay? Everyone has got a thing… even if Mystique's thing happens to be a human leather-bound disfigured Doctor Doom. Each to their own, I guess. Love is love, or the closest approximation of that, anyway.
