I am also intrigued as to why Cordelia Frost is still missing giving her active position in the Hellfire Club and being Emma's little sister. The ending and given his connection to Emma as well this would be the perfect moment for Namor to reappear with his mutant brethren.

    I'm still super curious to The Knights of The Hellfire Trading Company , we possibly know White is Callisto but I wanna know who Black and Red will be My first guesses would be Lady Mastermind or Cordelia Frost respectfully for Black Knight and Iceman/Namor or maybe Hellion for Red Knight.
    how was Cordelia part of the Hellfire Club? she has no resources. that's why Shinobi rejected her play for membership. i would more believe Exodus or Gorgon as Knight.

    Is that even a valid contract? Exclusive means nothing if can't be enforced and if Charles and Erik decide to revoke the agreement there is nothing Emma can't do about it. Unless you think she will take them to court.

    Why wouldn't she take them to court and why wouldn't she have them sign a valid contract?

    She was name dropped as being part of the Hellfire Brats mess in Aaron's run.

    Well Krakoa has no courts unless you consider the Quiet Council a defacto court or something. And I highly doubt the council members would care about Emma's exclusive shipping rights. So that leaves human courts and mutants no longer answer to human institutions. So what recourse does Emma really have? Xavier and Magneto are happy to let her handle drug transportation because they along with Moira have more important things to concern themselves with. However if she tries to make a power play using her position as leverage then they will have no problem removing her from said position. Krakoa is stable at the moment, I doubt Emma wants to start rocking the boat.

    Of course, now might be the time for Christian’s submarine to rise up beneath her, lifting Kate and the boat out of the water. And showing that Christian is actually on Emma’s side...

    So why would they even make a deal with her for her seats if it was just words? They even conceded her one extra seat on the table, that's literally proof of her political power.

    And Charles and Erik would give two shits about Shaw if Emma provided a valid substitute to deal with the black markets.

    That would be cool!

    What if, at the end of this, Kate takes Shaw black markets role?

    And I love him for it. Hope Kate stays dead for a few issues to let others shine at least.
    Ok, I'll bite. What did Christian do?

    Finally some support on this hot topic. haha.

    Which Court? is Krakoa part of the WTO or something? The only Krakoan Courts we know of is the Quiet Council..

    I love this book, but that whole page bugged me. I would think Yellowjacket would be above juvenile humor. I don't put it past Pyro, but seems to me YJ would just report the necessary details and keep the commentary to a minimum. Esp the whole "these guys are pretty rad" thing at the end. *rolls eyes*

    The threat of villains winning is what makes stories engaging, imo. That's what runs emotions high. But one-sided stories where damn near all the enemies are fodder, we may as well not even have them. lol
    I don't read comics to see villains winning, but villains have to put a good fight to be entertaining

    I skipped over the last Uncanny run, just read the reviews but wasn't Emma Black King during Shinobi's death? So was Sebastian really lying when he said Emma was involved with his death?
