    Default Krakoa locations: Come see the sights!

    Issue 1 of House of X gave us a map of Krakoa (Pacific) and 12 points on it:

    1. House of X
    2. House of M
    3. Arbor Magna
    4. Arena
    5. Akademos Habitat
    6. Transit
    7. The Oracle
    8. The Grove
    9. The Cradle
    10. The Reservoir
    11. The Wild Hunt
    12. Carousel

    All a complete mystery. House of X issue 6 has now expanded even further on this, with a new Atlantic region, 9 more places of interest and expansion on some of the previous locations:

    13. Bar Sinister
    14. Hellfire Bay
    15. The Red Keep
    16. Blackstone
    17. The White Palace
    18. -------------------------------
    19. Transit [Atlantic/Pacific]
    20. The Pointe
    21 Danger Island [Training]

    Arbor Magna (3) is now revealed as Resurrection and Tranist (6) is revealed as the main one.

    Let's speculate on each location and what is there!
    15-17 seem to be the colours of the hellfire club and are located right on Hellfire Bay.

    No, it will get lost amongst all the nonsense in those appreciation threads. This is to specifically speculate about the locations.

    I want to know where on the planet they are... The middle of the ocean is a open territory.

    I just want to know which one is Storm's garden. I'm thinking the Grove.
    Don't let anyone else hold the candle that lights the way to your future because only you can sustain the flame.

    Well, it gave the exact location in the data pages in the comic. They had exact read marks where both islands were.

    they are going to need a big and capable policing force to deal with a nation of this side and to ensure certain individuals stay in line.

    Marauders seemingly deals with other issues as does X-Force. New Mutants are going to be off planet.

    who lives in what area? Akademos is probably the school ?

    I wonder if Danger Island is the place Danger annexed at the end of X-Club.

    Default KRAKOA: Come See the SIGHTS!




    Race For The Iron Throne — Thoughts on House of X #6
    Krakoa Infographic:

    • With Krakoa now extant as a nation-state, we get one more infographic…that shows us that there is a Krakoa Atlantic to go along with Krakoa Pacific. This points to an important truth about this new polity - it would be a mistake to see Krakoa as an island nation like Genosha or Utopia, because the nation of Krakoa exists wherever the physical entity of Krakoa exists. It’s in the Pacific and the Atlantic, it’s on the moon, it’s on Mars, it’s everywhere a Krakoan flower has been planted. Which makes it a post-geographic power.

    • So what’s on Krakoa Atlantic?

    • The Pointe is one of Xavier’s Cerebro back-up locations, so that an attack on Krakoa Pacific won’t destroy the database.
    Danger Island is the X-Men’s new and expanded training facility.
    Transit allows for instant transportation between Pacific and Atlantic to allow the X-Men to respond to a threat to either island or cradle, and possibly a final keep to fall back to if everything else is lost.


    • And finally we get one last map of Krakoa (All), and there’s a lot we don’t know about these locations:

    • The House of X and the House of M are Xavier and Magneto’s residences, and the location of one of the Cerebro “cradles.”
    • The Arbor Magna is the big tree where the Resurrection system is located in/on.
    • The Arena we don’t know anything about, but from the name it suggests that it’s a combat-oriented location, either for training or for entertainment purposes.
    • The Akademos Habitat is almost certainly Krakoa’s educational facility that Jean mentions back in House of X #1, but the fact that it’s a Habitat is interesting, because a Krakoan Habitat is a ”self-sustained environment” of its own that is “part of the interconnected consciousness of Krakoa,” and I had thought that having a Habitat on Krakoa itself, as opposed to one out on the moon or Mars would be redundant. My guess is that this is meant to provide an additional layer of safety to the next generation of mutants.
    • We saw Transit back in House of X #1, this Transit location is the Grand Central Station for Greater Krakoa, linking all gateway locations together. Yet another sign that, for Krakoa, their nation has a different conception of distance.
    • The Oracle is, I would guess, probably one of the Krakoan Systems, most likely either Sage’s or Beast’s part of the system.
    • I don’t know what the Grove is supposed to be, but given its proximity to the Akademos Habitat, I think it’s supposed to be a living space, possibly just for the young and possibly not.
    • The Cradle, it turns out, is just a cradle.
    • The Reservoir could be that lagoon we saw back in House of X #1, which would make sense if the Wild Hunt is a nature preserve, because animals love to congregate at watering holes.
    • The Carousel’s name suggests it’s an entertainment facility.
    • We know what Bar Sinister is from its last appearance; it turns out that Sinister recreated his little island Edwardian eugenics nightclub on Krakoa. Interesting that it’s located so close to Transit; maybe Sinister wants to be able to make a quick getaway.
    • Speaking of the fruits of faustian bargains, it turns out that the quid-pro-quo for becoming the economic engine of a nation is that the Hellfire Trading Company gets a whole Hellfire Bay to itself as its headquarters.
    Red Keep is almost certainly Kate Pryde’s new pad, which is conveniently ocean-ajacent for our newest mutant pirate privateer queen.
    Blackstone is Sebastian Shaw’s Gilded Age “gentleman’s” club.
    The White Palace is naturally Emma’s boudoir, complete with buzzsaws and spikes.
    • The unnamed location 18 is clearly Moira’s No-Space.

    House of X and Powers of X - Wikipedia
    … Starting five months ago, members of the X-Men began taking flowers from the island of Krakoa to various locations, notably Westchester County, New York, the Blue Area of the Moon, the Green Area on Mars, the Savage Land, Washington D.C., and the Jerusalem Habitat. Since then, they have grown into large bio-masses of plant life. ...
    Jerusalem Habitat | Marvel Database | FANDOM powered by ...
    Habitat(s), a diplomatic biome interconnected to Krakoa's collective consciousness, as well as a Krakoan Gateway, a pathway leading directly to the island of Krakoa in the South Pacific.

    I'm ABSOLUTELY FASCINATED with it ALL! What places have we been shown so far*, and which ones have we yet to see?!

    *RESERVED empty space in the following posts, for images+ related to this.
