On the eve of the Hellfire Gala, our flagship book (in its penultimate issue) finally decides to advance the main story of this era!

Remember Nimrod?  Remember Orchis?  Remember Mystique threatening to burn everything down?  Well – it’s finally time to start moving these elements forward – and it looks like it’s all headed to INFERNO

… but, ya know… first, a fashion show.

One thought on “X-Lapsed, Episode 210 – X-Men #20 (2021)

  • Damien Drouet-Whiter

    This is the stuff we want. At last Mystique is back and she's going to ignite an Inferno. I know it is referenced that Moira has the Destiny Diaries but surely she must know that Destiny will have warned Mystique about Krakoa. Does Moira's plan require the taking down of Magneto (The Trial) and Xavier (Inferno)? Otherwise treating Mystique so cruelly seems overly careless. It's not like she's never gone rogue and put revenge ahead of every other connection. Xavier and Magneto must know it isn't fun to bait Mystique it's a dangerous game.

    Onto the Orchis Forge. I kind of don't care. Yes, Nimrod has been reintroduced but we know he's not going to follow the logical action of working his way back to Earth to kill all mutants. We know that's got to wait until at least the third act of Hickman's run and will probably mainly focus on unnamed background mutants. I can't get excited about this specific element of the plot. It doesn't get you like Mystique's revenge.

    Anyway, until Marvel launches a robot apocalypse on the X-Lapsed, Make Mine X-Lapsed!
