    I'm still trying to understand what this whole new mutant world means. I don't think this team is going to be based on England. I don't think there will be an England. Guess we'll have a better understanding of this during House of X/ Powers of X.

    Apocalypse is going to betray everybody so hard.
    My opinions are my own

    We're gonna have to wait till October. But I believe Hickman stated that he will be appearing in the later half of HoXPoX. So maybe he sets up something new for Apocalypse. Also there is that one page story in Marvel 1000 or whatever its called. Someone help me out here. That may also explain some things. Hopefully.

    I am just sad that my great dream for Katherine Pryde to be the next horseman of Apocalypse isn't coming to pass. So disappointed.

    Otherwise, I am excited for the new Excalibur, and I love that Betsy gets some time in the spotlight again. I wonder if they are going to be based out of Britain or the new X nation? I see all the forest in the background so I think this Excalibur will mostly be based in the new X nation realm.

    Also I'm really hoping that Brian and Meggan make a few appearances in this new launch.

    I am quite interested in this book too. I'll have to take some time to read other works by Tini Howard, but Hickman apparently spoke highly of her and I've seen other positive comments about her writing record in general terms.

    It's always nice to see Betsy again and, you know, assuming the Captain Britain persona one more time isn't bad at all. Having Rogue and Gambit plus Jubilee on the same roster is a good development too. I don't know much about Rictor. It'll be a completely new incarnation of Excalibur but I hope they will be able to recapture at least part of the same spirit, even if the team's mission and methods are different.

    It would seem plausible that Apocalypse's position in this team might be a combination of the recent events from Age of X-Man and upcoming developments in House of X or Powers of X. I still wouldn't trust him at this point, so the potentially inevitable betrayal angle should remain in every reader's mind.

    For now, I think his presence should add some sense of mystery and tension to the character dynamics. In addition, since Apocalypse is such an ancient being and should have access to unknown sources of knowledge, that also allows the writer to introduce and develop additional lore, whether magical or otherwise. I presume that will tie into the whole "mutant magic" concept that the author has brought up on Twitter.

    Apparently if we read between the lines for PoX/HoX: mutants have basically because a big tent and former enemies like Apocalypse and the Hellfire Club have signed up with the X-Men.

    I feel like the bridge between this new version of Excalibur and the old book will be Captain Britain (now Betsy) and magic. Not England. Not the mission statement.

    The whole "mutant magic" thing is odd. By that tweet, sounds like Tini is treating it like it's something new, exclusive to this new world?

    Be nice to see Sebastian Shaw on a team of X-men.

    Default Excalibur by Tini Howard and Marcus To Appreciation 2019





    Excalibur #1
    A NEW DAWN IS FORGED! The Otherworld is rocked by war! It is a new era for mutantkind as a new Captain Britain holds the amulet, fighting for the Kingdom of Avalon with her Excalibur at her side - Rogue, Gambit, Rictor, Jubilee...and Apocalypse.

    EXCALIBUR #2

    Betsy Braddock is Captain Britain, but a citizen of Krakoa. With Rogue’s condition a mystery, the team heads to the one place that has always been the seat of Excalibur’s power – the Lighthouse.

    He is the rock that their island nation is built upon. And he is still very much a leader of his people, the people of Krakoa know him and what he has done for them over the years, and they look up to him. He is the head of the X-Men. He might not be RULING Krakoa, but he is definitely leading it.
