    Default What is the biggest threat to Krakoa/mutants now?

    Humanity - the vast general bulk. As in, their own fears and loathing of "what is different, possibly superior" making them innately hostile and because humanity has the numbers on the planet they as a whole can do enormous damage

    Posthumans - we saw one so far, and clearly in HoX/PoX these are The Big Bad. We'll have to find out how potent they become.

    Sentinels/Nimrod - obvious threats usually, some call them boring because they don't really have their own agenda, but Nimrod has something of a personality at least in the future. And clearly this machine may get restarted. Karima the Omega Sentinel maybe can get put into this category.

    Xeno and groups like that - spooky and intimidating, these guys are vicious and terroristic, but ultimately are they glorified thugs or something more? Maybe just the fear factor they can induce in mutants is a threat by itself.

    Orchi - HIGHLY organized, effective, well resourced, with very intelligent members. An absolute threat tying into several others.

    Villainous mutants - Nuff said. Mr Sinister. Selene. So on and so forth. Right now they're mostly cooperating but it can't last forever can it? Forgot to bring up Madelyne Pryor who surely will return.

    Aliens - We see in New Mutants the Shi'ar and other races are definitely still around and they might get "opinions" about Krakoa and choose to do something about it. (Reviving Jean and other Phoenix Force hosts might not be looked on favorably for example)

    Place your bets or add more
    Forget the old ways - Krakoa is god.

    Coven akkaba and LeFay? I think the issue with the magicians could be solved easily if the Quiet Council orders Apocalyse stop siphoning the magic of Avalon but right now they want their heads. It seems like LeFay will lose the throne soon but I dont think their problems will stop there , if Krakoa steals all the magic of Avalon for themselves every magic creature in the UK would want to take it back.

    Right now its Humans overall. To be clear that doesn't mean every human on the planet but the governments, the organizations, the angry masses that is the largest threat by far. Everyone else either isn't a threat yet or can be defeated by punching and laser beams. Humanity overall cannot be "beaten" its threat has to be blunted, diverted and that only increases its threat.

    I thought Magneto's plan to 'buy everybody out' was gonna take care of that, though?

    In time but for example in the next issue Hank of XForce will go to investigate a new technology that could be better than krakoan , thats the biggest danger of all that humans can make their technology outdated. If someone would find a cure for the cancer or a way to create advanced green technology without Krakoan tech would be horrible for Krakoa.

    Kinda makes me wonder if that is going to happen at some point?...And for extra irony, it winds up working for mutants too, now that'd really be a problem.

    Operative words; Right now. Magneto and Xavier have a plan to address this issue in the future, but we aren't there yet. Right now humans are the biggest threat, also the only threat on that list that you can't beat into submission.

    With "now" being the operative term I voted for Xeno-type groups. They infiltrated the island and shot Professor X in the face, they are actively destroying mutant businesses and are creating living weapons of war that and basically bio-sentinels. If we are talking about the biggest threat overall I would have voted for post-humans based on the revelations from HoX/PoX.
