Hellfire Gala
In Hellions #11, Mister Sinister may have the look down pat, but he may need to have some face work done first. If only to deal with the botched job he most recently suffered at the hands of a certain Arcade And to stop everyone announcing him as Mishter Shinishter Still, maybe he'll like the whole[...]
Cover image for HELLIONS #11
When we last saw the Hellions, way back in Hellions #10, they weren't having a great time trapped in Arcade's new Mastermind-powered Murder World And yes, they're still trapped there in this preview of Hellions #11, but has it really been 30 years as the solicit implies and as Kwannon's gray hair shows? Probably not[...]
The Demasculation Of Wolverine In X-Men Comics Today
There's only a smattering of Krakoa in today's comic books from Marvel today, with only Hellions #10 as the official X-Men title – but some other interest elsewhere But one way or another, Wolverine does not come out of it well at all. So in Hellions #10 today we get to see the illusions created by[...]
Marvel X-Men Krakoa
And if they can't do that… it's resurrection time. King In Black: Marauders #1 – resurrection plans I'm sure the resurrection protocols will hold, right? Avengers #42 shows that Wolverine is a bit possessive these days. Runaways #33 sees the X-Men take a trip off Krakoa as well, courtesy of Molly. Maybe they should have used a limo, like[...]
Is Professor X A War Criminal? (Hellions, Juggernaut, X-Factor)
Today sees the publication of three X-Men comic books, Hellions #8, X-Factor #6 and Juggernaut #5 – the latter seems a little retrofitted into the Krakoan comic books, but we'll go with it After all, it ends with Professor X and Krakoa taking in a new citizen.

X-Force and New Mutants
And now asking the question – could there be other Fastball Specials yet to be untapped? Credit: Marvel New Mutants #14 doubles down on this and gives us their first explicit such combinations from the New Mutants, teaching a new crowd of young mutants on Krakoa.

The cover to Hellions #7
In Hellions #7, Mister Sinister's schemes don't stop just because he arguably won the X of Swords crossover Plus: the return of a classic villain No discourse this time… just a gif I made from last night's wrestling shows. Now it's recap time! Sworn to sell comics for Marvel executives who feared and hated the fact that[...]
X Of Swords
Today's X Of Swords three issues with X-Force, Hellions and Cable, burn through almost all the remaining battles between Krakoa and Arakko, as held by Saturnyne in Otherworld between them. Even though one X Of Swords issue, Hellions, hasn't got a single battle in it Captain Britain, at odds with Saturnyne, and in X-Force, she brings[...]

Hellions #5 Review: Dazzling Performance of Mr. Sinister
As such, reviewing Hellions #5 (or Cable #5 or New Mutants #13) is not exactly like a regular comic book review, as you don't get a story in any of these, you get a scene from a larger work, interpreted by a creative team This issue, however, had the distinction of the dazzling performance of Mr[...]
