Krakoa Takes Another Step Towards Creating Chimera – (X-Men #7, Giant-Sized X-Men #1, New Mutants #8, X-Force #8, X-Men/Fantastic Four #2 Spoilers)

In House Of X, as part of the ninth timeline, we learnt about Chimera.


Mister Sinister, a chimera created using the body of Thunderbird? In the House Of X/Power Of X series, we learn that Mister Sinister creates the chimera, combining DNA of mutants to create new individuals.

Sinister Plans

And we get a break down of one future chimera's DNA sources, Rasputin.

Sinister Plans

A combination of Quentin Quire, Nightcrawler, Kate Pryde, X-23 and Unus The Untouchable. And giving us her in Power Of X…

With the Krakoan system of resurrecting mutants, with the five creating new bodies and Charles Xavier bringing back their souls, there have been questions and suggestions as to what would happen if mutant minds were put into other bodies, or what if the process was carried out when a mutant was alive, creating duplicates. But it seems that Xavier has thought of this… and has forbidden Sinister from making copies of mutants, as he did creating Madelyne Pryor from Jean Grey.

Incoming #1

So he's not allowed to make copies, what can he do?

Incoming #1

Making something new from something old. Chimeras on Krakoa now, not a hundred years hence. And what materials does he need?

Incoming #1He's on the wat, Mister Sinister. Still on Doom's own mutant island right now…

Oh yes, Doctor Doom has his very own mutant island, away from Latveria. Krakoa has competition. But in X-Men #7, the concept that will feed into chimera are beginning. As mutants leave wills before they die -and are then resurrected, requesting such chimera possibilities.

Why not indeed, Nightcrawler.

Colossus is already talking about coming back… better in -Force #8.

And Domino encounters the results of, well, a very crude version of a chimera as well…

And if they need a little hands-on action, why not ask Armor do to her impression of The Sentry and Ares, God Of War, in today's New Mutants?
