    Not that it will matter much as this entire universe is being rebooted anyway.
    I was thinking Selene in “Dark Phoenix” being akin to Arclight (or perhaps Callisto)in “The Last Stand”. Given that Arclight is a much lesser character than Selene.74F42C6E-7C3B-4FD4-9D18-11CAD8C89C41.jpg

    I did some deeper research on the character Kota Eberhardt is playing and since earlier character breakdowns list her as “Luna”, I’m withholding judgement since it seems just as likely that Avalon in “Dark Phoenix” is more like Magnetos Savage Land Acolytes making this supposed Selene more of a Lorelei/Lani Urbana reimagining.
    Or I pray to the Moon Goddess tis so.

    Talking Happy 35th Anniversary 616 Selene Gallio!!! 1984-2019

    Uncanny X-Men #183 Jul 1984
    "He'll Never Make Me Cry" First appearance of Selene.
    Back from his ordeal on Battleworld and Japan, Colossus has come to bring
    the hard news to Kitty Pryde that while he was gone, he fell in love with another.
    The revelation crushes Kitty; however, she hides the hurt from him until she returns to the room she shares with Illyana.
    Both Illyana and Lockheed try to comfort her when she breaks down into tears.

    Meanwhile, Storm checks on Rogue down in the Danger Room and saves her from a potentially lethal training session.
    When Storm attempts to understand what happened between her and Michael Rossi,
    Rogue only says that she is a monster, then she flees the room telling her to leave her alone.
    Upstairs, Colossus returns to the mansion and is confronted by Logan who tells Peter that the two of them
    are going to have a talk about Peter's break-up with Kitty and leave with Nightcrawler for a bar down in Manhattan.

    Upstairs, Kitty confides her feelings to Storm and tells her that she is taking
    some time to visit her parents and is not sure if she will be coming back.
    While in Dallas, Texas, Raven Darkholme and Valerie Cooper are en route to see the mutant inventor named Forge.
    They begin discussion of Senator Kelly's proposed Mutant control bill.
    As they discuss the arguments about mutant registration, Raven secretly muses over what Valerie would think
    if she knew one of the many mutants who she sees as a threat is the very person driving her to Forge.

    At a bar in Manhattan, Wolverine tries to get Colossus to realize that his "romance" with Zsaji on Battleworld was not a relationship,
    and the two come to odds over Peter's true feelings for Kitty. During the conversation, Logan picks up the Juggernaut's scent
    and realizes that their old foe is drinking at the bar. Not wishing for a fight to break out, Logan suggests that they leave.
    When Colossus decides to be difficult, the slightly drunk mutant stumbles and spills his drink on the Juggernaut.


    Spoiling for a fight after his defeat at the hands of Spider-Man, the Juggernaut picks a fight with Colossus.
    As the fight rages, they trash the bar, but ultimately the Juggernaut wins.
    When the fight is over, the Juggernaut asks Wolverine and Nightcrawler if they wish to fight.
    Logan says no, and the Juggernaut departs leaving money to pay for the damages.
    When they confront Colossus, he is angry with his friends for not helping.
    Logan points out that X-Men will help each other out for honor and sacrifice everything,
    like when Kitty was willing to marry Caliban so that the Morlocks would save his life.

    As he walks away Nightcrawler tells Wolverine he is unforgiving.
    However, Logan points out that Colossus needed to be taught a hard lesson about honor.
    As they walk away, they are unaware of a woman high on a rooftop who had managed to suck the life out of a man,

    leaving a burnt out husk. It is Selene, and she is glad to be walking the Earth once more after 2000 years.

    Selene, iconic villainess, was cited in this week's HIstory of the Marvel Universe. Badassly.

    And one of the like, 3 women mentioned lol. Named oldest or one of oldest mutants.

    Uncanny X-Men #184 Aug 1984
    "The Past...of Future Days!" First appearance of Forge.
    Dallas, Texas: Valarie Cooper and Raven Darkholme of the Department of Super-Human Affairs
    have arrived at the high rise home of the mutant inventor Forge.
    They are initially taken aback by the holographic display capabilities of his dwelling.
    They arrive just as Forge's old shaman is leaving; Forge refused to see the signs of some coming mystical danger.
    When his apathy toward his tribe’s plight prompts Naze to leave, Forge gets right down to business to show Val and Raven his latest invention.
    From researching the weapons of ROM the Spaceknight, Forge has been
    able to create a weapon that can neutralize the abilities of a super-human.
    However, he stresses that the weapon is a prototype and he is unsure whether
    the effects are permanent or what psychological effect they will have on its target.
    When Forge shows off his next invention, a mutant detector,
    Raven becomes worried that Forge might out her as a mutant, compromising her position.
    However, Forge tells Val the only mutant it detects is himself, however his jest does nothing more but anger Raven.

    Meanwhile, in New York City, Rachel Summers has recently arrived from the future and stops at a display window of an electronics shop.
    As she watches news coverage of the X-Men's recent battle in Japan,
    she notes that Storm looks a lot different than she did in her future time.
    When she catches a report about the upcoming Mutant Control Act, the electricity
    blinks out forcing Rachel to risk using her powers to power the television.
    However, the report is over and as Rachel walks out in the night,
    she begins to wonder if this is the past of her reality, or that of an alternate universe.

    Rachel is not alone in the streets however; the evil Selene has detected her massive powers

    and seeks to make Rachel her heir.
    After Rachel is nearly scared to death by a passing fire truck, Selene makes her move.
    However, Rachel manages to fight her off and flee into a nightclub.
    There she is bombarded by all the thoughts of the patrons and collapses on the floor.
    Just before the bouncer can kick her out, Nick Damiano, the club’s owner,
    decides that the girl is in serious trouble and takes her upstairs to his apartment.
    After deflecting Nick's questions, not being able to trust a human, Rachel agrees to take a bath while he prepares a meal for her.
    However, when Rachel comes out to check on Nick she is horrified to find
    that Selene has drained his life force away, leaving him a burned out husk.

    The two women begin to battle,


    and the energies set off Cerebro, prompting Professor X to send Colossus, Nightcrawler and Rogue to investigate the disturbance.
    As the X-Men fight through Selene’s defenses, Rogue gets close enough for hand-to-hand combat.
    Selene grabs Rogue's bare throat, but much to Rogue's surprise, she is the one who is having her power sapped.
    Rogue is saved by a mental attack by Professor X, which sends Selene fleeing.
    Charles orders the X-Men to save Rachel and leave the burning building and to let Selene go because she is too powerful.
    Storm arrives shortly thereafter and uses her powers to put out the fire.

    When Rachel comes around, she is shocked to see that the Professor can walk
    and that Storm looks radically different from her memories and photos.
    Realizing she traveled back in time to the wrong past, Rachel collapses to the group when she realizes that her world is doomed.

    I remember the Black Queen being a little bit on the frightening side when I first saw her in the Uncanny X-Men drawn by John Romita Jr. feeding on a mugger ,and his soon to be target after nearly being killed by Phoenix. Been more a fan of her's since the Necrosha event. Which in part ,due to the nature of the event featuring Selene and her own Inner Circle raising the dead to attain her desired godhood. Not mention the homage covers to vampire flicks of the past always appealed to my horror sensibilities.

    Anywho, once this storyline with Selene runs its course in Captain America, or between the events of the current tale. I've been thinking with the current tale of Conan The Barbarian showing up in modern times. Encountering many of the heroes and villains of the modern Marvel Age, and in Savage Avengers dealing with his enemy from the Hyborian Age, Kulan Gath. Who we learned from the Kulan Gath arc in UXM, Selene was a contemporary, and rival, foe of the wizard. Who played a part in the sorcerer's defeat. With Gath causing trouble again in the modern age, I'm wondering if the Black Queen will be stepping in to put a halt to the wizard's plans. Not too mention Selene also being born, and living through the Hyborian Age, maybe Selene once ran afoul, caused trouble for Conan back in the day. And if they did, to butt heads in modern times.

    Another team-up, hook-up I could see, kind of want to happen. Is Selene to either ally herself, or even hook up with Dracula. The mutant succubus, and the Lord of the Undead came to me after seeing this image from Darkstalkers, featuring the game's resident Vampire Lord, Dimitri Maximoff. And Demon Princess, succubus, Morrigan Ansleid. Wouldn't mind seeing some artwork featuring Drac, and Selene in a similar pose together.

    If nothing else, I especially enjoyed the Shakespearean dialogue between Selene and Black Knight on a story battle in the late and lamented web-browser game "Marvel Avengers Alliance."

    Selene: Prithee, Black Knight. Where goest thou, and wherefore? The City is full of dangers.
    Black Knight: Well I know it, and will take arms against them. Yield, sorceress, and take thy hand from what does not belong to thee.
    Selene: Dost bare thy blade, o warrior? Then a lady must mount what defense she may.
    Black Knight: Right. Enough of that. Put the stone down or I'll shave your fingers from around it.

    IF Lose
    Selene: O good sir knight, your wounds distress me.

    THEN Repeat
    Selene: Hast taken the field yet again?
    Black Knight: And will see you yield it.

    And DAMN RIGHT Selene needs to battle Conan in the present-day Marvel U. They have long made a big deal of her being around and active in the Hyborean Age. Time to see the action!

    I hope one of the writers explore how a mutant vampire like her is able to survive in Krakoa. Humans are off limits but mutants are fair game by law. An island full of mutants to feast on lol. I’d love to see her interact with her former hellfire club teammates and possible take a chance to be Apocalypse’s queen. There’s so much storyline potential for this character.she would fit in the pages of X-Force, Excalibur or Fallen Angels.
