    Exactly. I mean I love reading everyone's theories, but everything we say (me included) could be wrong. It's hard enough to wrap my brain around each issue, let alone try and solve the puzzle and take home the prize.

    They said that’s Krakoa itself. Sounds like it’s inhabiting Cypher’s body.

    >As cool as all this Kardashev future stuff is, I honestly have no emotional investment. There are no characters in that time period unless you count cute Lil Nimrod. I can get excited about a cool sci-fi concept [and I am] but that's about it. I'm sure it'll tie back into mutants/humans/machines but I'm a bit bored with it right now.

    The digital issue needs a link to an X-men wiki. I love the Phalanx and their group-speak, but I haven't seen them in a comic since 1997 and had to do a side-google while reading. This will read really well in tpb but is kind of frustrating to follow week-by-week.

    It feels very much like Powers of X is showing us various parts of Moira's previous lives. Specifically it seems as if Hickman is showing us key pieces that inform Moira's decision making in 616. It would also explain how she's managed to convince so many big players (Xavier, Magneto, Apocalypse) to work together. I definitely don't think the future show in Powers of X is 616. I think it's a "we tried this and it failed so in this next life lets try something different" scenario, as are most of the scenes from Powers of X. But who knows with Hickman.

    Then I'm gonna dip lol. More story telling. Less world building. I want to care about what's happening.

    A lot of these presumptions about when the scene with Magneto on Island M takes place are predicted on it having to be an alternate Moira timeline, not the current one/616. I don't buy that, personally. Further, Magneto is fully armored up in that sequence and knows who Moira is and that she is a renowned mutant researcher - these are things he would know during the UXM 100s-200s, not likely at the very beginning of X-Men history. I still believe that sequence takes place somewhere mid-UXM, pre-200.

    Also:

    Brilliant recap, Mr. Cochese!

    We also need to remember *possible spoiler if you don’t know*

    Phalanx and technarchy can’t assimilate mutants.

    Its why I find him to be so relatable.
    Besides, Ultron already had his shot with the Phalanx back in Annihilation: Conquest a decade ago.
    The spider is always on the hunt.
