    That's all.
    You're the first person who explained this point. I always thought she would be reborn in the future as reincarnation is a real thing in life. See Edgar Cayce.

    But then when she is reborn again in 1960, does that mean all other humans/mutants are also reset to that point? That's why I am really confused.

    How could she meet Charles in almost every lifetime since Charles would not be reincarnated back to the same point in time as Moira's mutant ability.

    I agree but maybe he will advise whoever writes it? But yeah it would be odd for someone else to develop all the details of Hick's own concept

    When in House of X/Powers of X did you ever see her reborn in the future? Hickman laid it out very straightforward and there was a graphic which shows all her lives and she being reborn at the same exact point in time

    Yes everything is reset when she is reborn. She met Charles in most of her timelines bc she sought him out. She didnt meet him by chance. That was very deliberate on her part

    Just watch the movie Groundhog Day basically. It's like the exact same concept

    Not much activity in this thread but I just wanted to say I really appreciate you posting the links to those articles myownlittleusername! It's been fun to go through all of Moira's history to see how much doesn't quite fit with HoXPoX's retcons and how much is actually enriched by it. I have a feeling it can all conclude only with Moira's "final" death, but I'm certainly happy to see the good doctor back as arguably the single most important character in the franchise!

    I love that this woman is the scheming mastermind behind Krakoa

    Agreed. It robs the X-Men of their longest human ally, introduces a long line of WTF-ness to the entire run and will likely run roughshod over associated characters (Banshee, Wolfsbane, Excalibur etc, their reactions are unlikely to be fleshed out)
