Oopsie! It Was All Beast's Fault Again, In Inhumans Vs X-Men IVX #6 Conclusion (SPOILER)

Hank McCoy. The Beast. It's always down to him isn't it? He's the one who brought the Teen X-Men to the present day, broke time and threatened the existence of all reality. You'd have thought he'd have wised up by now.

But no.

So at the beginning of Inhumans Vs X-Men, the Beast was working with the Inhumans on dealing with the Terrigen Mist, which the Inhumans knew killed mutants. They knew it and he was working on a solution.

Except there wasn't one. And the Beast told Medusa this.

So she is aware that the mist is running around the place making new Inhumans but killing mutants.21

And then the Beast works out that it will be impossible for mutants to avoid the cloud, as it will soon be everywhere.

But he hasn't told the Inhumans.

And now he won't. And the once chance the Beast does get to tell Medusa what's going on…. it's his younger, less talkative self.
15And that doesn't go down well either.

Eventually the younger Inhumans discover what's going on through mental possession of the mutants' bodies.

And then this week? In the final issue? Someone tells Medusa.

And she is perfectly reasonable about things. Basically, the entire war, the entire battle, the entire conflict was for want of a message on Whatsapp from Hank McCoy.
