(Especially those in charge of Kitty, FFS!) And the idea of it being a way of culturally separating themselves from humans is also great. So they could make $$$ selling them to humans but I could also see how they’d want to keep them for themselves!
    Yes, that's it! Thank you.

    Seriously, yes! Although I'm starting to think it's a gag in the X-Office to keep Kitty fashionably out of touch.

    I think we're seeing notes from various characters. Like Orchis, Xavier, maybe Moira, Nimrod, Sinister etc.

    Hickman said in an interview that the info comes from multiple sources, it is all just done in a similar style for consistency as the designer put a lot of work into it.

    Thanks.

    ONe more. The reason Orichi's triggers at a certain amount of mutants existing is because once a certain amount of mutants exist, lets say 20million, they become a cosmic level threat which probably puts them on a higher plane as a collective. Someone has this knowledge and has been purposefully using humans to destroy mutants to keep their numbers under control out of fear. If the powers of 10 can do something huge what could Powers of X(an unknown amount) do.

    I at first assumed xavier using Cerbro with Moira...but now i think Sinister and Apocalypse were in on the notes too.
    In the real world i would be BOTH pro registration and Pro mutant rights. Xavier and Trask were both right.

    That makes sense. A collective of notes. But someone must have gathered it into one place for it to be presented to us the way it is being. Or i could just be overthinking that part.

    Lol now i'm fully expecting this thing to end with 10 mutants linking up to bring back the dead mutants and taking a page out of wanda's book. "No more machines." or "No more A.I."

    What we need is "no more shock writers" or to undo what it felt like for years "no more character growth"

    lol true true. look at the x-book previews. every last page we've seen so far with technology has been manned by actual people. Where's all the AI? The x-men preview the unit that snuck up on Storm had a person in it and it Mauraders there is a man in the iron man like armor that one would think was a robot before his helmet got shot off. Humans going to have to do the dirty work themselves.

    Man, I so agree with this! I actually like this Sinister. I think some of this depends on what X-Men are “your” X-Men. Mine is from Byrne to about the beginning of Lee with some spotty issues during “Inferno” I always thought Sinister was contrived.

    I mean, by the 1990s you’re really going’s to name a bad guy Sinister? Like Dr Evil or something?! C’mon. I get Dr Doom; it was the 60s.

    To write the guy as anything other than campy ( the flayed head/neck rest? A red diamond on the forehead?) This is not in any way a scary APPEARING villain considering the utter chaos he’s actually unleashed in the world of X-Men. To make him slightly insane and random makes the genius of his actions a bit more terrifying.

    Also, wasn’t he a character from the Victorian age which suggests all of the oddness of that period? Them working with him was doomed to fail...

    Unless that is what Xavier wanted to happen in the first place.

    Secret #1. Miss Sinister is the real Sinister
    #2 Thunderbird, need to leave Krakoa for space, maybe?
    #3 Madelyn
    #4 Sinister not joining up with the Krakoa thing
    # 5 Logan, Mandy and Scott with both Jean and Emma
    #6 twhat folks have said about this already
    #7 Gambit, Vulcan
    #8 Magneto (survival of the fittest) brotherhood. Mastermind, Wanda, quicksilver coming back
    #9 boom boom and cannonball
    #10 Cyclops

He's simply showing us how we got where we are. So though it feels like the future it's really the past.
    Hickman would be a man of his word even if X^3 is showing us the future. Thatís still not time travel, just a flash forward. The only theories that would make Hickman a liar, I think, are the ones along the lines of ďlife 10 still isnít 616, that will be life 11Ē.. because then pretty much the whole story will have taken place in an alternate reality. Or if characters were traveling between the different POX timelines, maybe thatís what it would take to be more of a time travel story.

    The editors said Kitty wears that old rag because she is the quintessential X-Man and therefore wears the quintessential X-Man uniform. Also that it’s “character growth” that she used to hate the costume but now embraces it. Obviously, both are BS reasons. So is Hickman’s “mutants don’t wear human clothes/they have a full closet of costumes”. All nonsense answers to hide laziness that make Dawn of X look aesthetically identical to the hell we’ve been reading for the last decade when it really shouldn’t.

    I'm thinking that mutants may combine together to form a unified consciousness that is on the level or surpasses what the Phalanx require for ascension and maybe able to overcome their program to acheive another step.With a technopath they could even integrate A.I. to their combined consciousness.
