Does Namor actually have the mutant gene?
Sold in the salesman sense. Sold 2 people on picking it up, not my personal copies, which would be difficult since they are digital lol
Every time I've gone to my local shop to pick up either Power of X or House of X they ONLY have variants, very odd. Even the shop owner mentioned how weird it was that he always had leftover variants but not the original cover.
Maybe because he charges more for the variants?
Nah. In regards to continuity Hickman is very much like Slott or Morrison. He wants to make it all important ans remembered.is it at all possible that Hickman is intending to retcon whole swaths of X-Men history as separate Moira lives? Marvel's sliding timeline just compresses an impossible amount of near-extinction level events for mutants in such a small amount of time, and I wonder if effectively creating 10 X-Men timelines here is a workaround meant to accommodate all that history and/or all the many alternate futures presented over the years?
This is true- for all the hype about the marvel universe "ending" and "everything dies" Time Runs Out and Secret Wars left 99.9999999% of it in place. You don't do that unless you love continuity and understand what makes it valuable.
I'll direct you to a post I made earlier - if you have a Marvel Unlimited free trial, you can read nearly all of this: https://www.resetera.com/threads/jonathan-hickmans-x-men-ot-adaptation-or-dominance-open-spoilers-gambit-is-the-witness.128998/#post-22759208
Grand Design is probably the only thing I'd say is a good idea. That will catch you up on the "gist" of everything that's happened on the Xmen timeline.
I don't really know a ton about X-Men history, it always seemed very daunting to get in to because it's been going on forever and there's like time travel and stuff. That's why I'm jumping in now.
Yeah, Hickmans done it perfectly where there's stuff for old time readers but newbies can pick it up and don't need prior knowledge.
as much as I actually hate the art and think some of the Rewritten narrative is a bit mean spirited to the original stories, it is the fastest way to catch up.
It also plays fast and loose with the facts and totally rewrites the proteus incident which considering the prominence of Moira in this story and Hickman’s love of continuity could still leave people confused if they only read grand design.
Yeah I'm generally ignorant of xmen in comics (outside of a couple events I read way back) so I'm coming at this fresh and it's pretty good. Liking it a lot and I plan on keeping up with it.
I'll probably dip my toe into this, see if it's up my alley.
I would think it would remain in his best interest to never become completely tied down. He'll run with this idea as long as its creatively and financially successfully and then have open opportunity to do whatever he wants, be it another creator owned book or DC or reboot another dead Marvel property. He's in a great position.
She wasn't in any of the movies.So watching some random reviews and reaction vids of HOX #2 on YouTube, it's weird to me how many of them are like "Oh and some chick named Destiny", "Destiny, a new mutant I think", "Who is Destiny?"
I'd have thought her associations with Mystique, Rogue, the Brotherhood, Days of Future Past, the lead up to Legion Quest and Age of Apocalypse (included it's conclusion inside the M'Kraan crystal) would have made her more known
From his FF run.
When it comes to CB reviews on YT, it's a very small crapshoot imo. You'll find a decent channel but they'll have a myriad of issues that no one really cares for such as either an over abundance of content and a very dull creator to name a few.
