Two print X-Men Krakoan comic books out today and one digital-only… this is going to be the way it is going forward, as the third X-Men Unlimited Weekly hits. So what's going down in and around Krakoan territory this week, what common threads can be pulled and conclusions drawn? We start with Hickman and Shalvey in space with Wolverine, tackling an AIM incursion on mutant space.
Looks like MODOK's AIM has no interest in working with pro-human anti-mutant Project Orchis like all the other AIM scientists who defected, along with Hydra, SHIELD, and others.
And kidnapping mutants is their bag. What could they be doing with them… looking for signs of resurrection? In Trial Of Magneto #2, that remains a big secret.
Although not so much of a secret that they won't blurt it out around visiting humanoid aliens looking to blow up bits of Arakko.
Keep it quiet, Sebastian! And if that looks like a hive of scum and villainy, well yes, it does have a Tattooine flavour to it on Arakko.
While in X-Men: The Trial Of Magneto #2, it does look like someone is getting resurrected, even if she's not meant to be…
It's not just the life and death of Scarlet Witch – and Magneto -that are up for grabs. Three members of th Quiet Council may have survived Arakko, but not its departure.
Resurrection awaits. Away from the Xbooks, Last Annihilation: Wakanda reminds us of the Wakandan connection, including an intergalactic one.
Mutants in space, but thankfully not subject to its vacuum right now.
And up in space, or at least in orbit, is where Wolverine has freed another member of the Quiet Council from being blasted into the vacuum too.
And it's time for a digital road trip it seems. Not too far from each other… just three thousand miles.
