You Can Go Home from Krakoa … X-Men, Hellions and Wolverine Spoilers

Five Krakoa books this week. That's a lot, even for a coronavirus week. So a warning, there are Giant-Size X-Men: Nightcrawler #1, X-Men #9, FF/X-Men #3, Hellions #1, and Wolverine #2 spoilers of differing degrees. We'll go in mild… as Giant-Size X-Men: Nightcrawler returns to a previous dwelling, the Mansion…

…with the familiar stylings of Alan Davis drawing characters that take us right back to the eighties and nineties…

But revisitation seems to be a bit of a theme, as Hellions sees a group of murdering psychopaths sent to Mister Sinster's old pad to deal with what he left there… all those clones that he's not meant to be making anymore. He promised. Not like this anyway.

…and an old face from his Inferno days turning up. One of his very best clones..

Madelyne Pryor, Goblin Queen. Shame Magik is busy in Giant-Size dealing with another face from the dim distant Giant-Size past…

Which also begs the question, why haven't they brought Thunderbird back yet? Properly, I mean. Krakoan style. Like in Wolverine #2 after Logan has stabbed Jean Grey in the gut one more time.

Thankfully everyone gets better now. But man, I wonder if those adjourning doors in the Summer House are going to be locked now? While over in X-Men #9 goes back to Shiar/Kree/Brood space… and back in time to see the origin of the Brood, and how they are repurposed to be a Kree biological weapon-in-waiting.

With a tasty snack for Broo thrown in.

Wonder if this is how they'll handle things over in Decorum? But trust Doctor Doom to break open the Ferrero Roche for diplomatic talks in FF/X-Men #3

I mean, Doom does have a point… not everyone comes back so easily as Jean Grey… and would you trust the Hellions with the Ferrero?
