    Default X-Men #6 review *spoilers* - "I want my wife back!"




    VERY GOOD issue!

    It starts in the past with Raven and Irene as Irene beings to tell her something. Then it moves to present day on Orchis where we see Sentinel City growing. Karima is there and later we see Dr. Gregor working on a Nimrod

    We are then taken to the scene of Mystique, Magneto and Xavier during HoX before the mission She is tasked to plant a seed in space. She does so but of course dies but we later see her reborn.

    Magneto reveals that they were died beyond the reach of Cerebro so their backup was right before they left. They go to a Krakoa gate to verify if she in fact planted the seed. She goes through and sneaks her way around Orchis and has a knife to a sleeping Gregor. She informs Xavier and Magneto when she returned that they wre wrong to believe that Nimrod came from Mother Mold bc Gregor is building one herself. Magneto asks her why she didnt take care of it and she says they have laws. Xavier wants more out of her but Mystique refuses bc she wants Irene back. Xavier says only when she has earned it.

    Later Mystique is seen at the Oracle and it flashes back to the earlier scene with Destiny. She tells Mystiquee about what will happen after she dies; she tells her of Krakoa. She tells her that they will lie to her bc they are hiding things. She tells her that she will understand when the time comes. "Bring me back" and if you can not burn that place to the ground



    The star of this issue was by far Destiny. She needs to be brought back ASAP

    This was really really good. Destiny is truly frightening and Mystique is going to go crazy soon. I wonder if she'll go and talk/ally with Orchis instead.

    I wish we had gotten a datapage about what The Oracle is.

    Orchis is still a big threat, bigger than ever.
    Charles and Eric are not helping themselves or their cause in how they handle Mystique.
    I know ‘evil lesbians’ is the oldest cliche in the book, but even so, that was fab (if Hickman resolves Kurt’s parentage and makes them his parents, I will love him forever).

    Precognitives are difficult characters to write in unending serials, but when they are written well holy shit. I want Destiny back too but I don't want her available to just anyone.

    Great issue. Xavier and Magneto egos are gonna be the downfall of Krakoa. But I don’t think it will be a Genosha part 2.

    Mystique is definitely gonna be a major player down the line.

    I like these one shots and I don’t view it as being dropped story.

    Hickman is planting his seeds for an epic endgame imo

    And these first couple of issues gave us plenty of new threats to mutantdom.

    Now we wait and see which one strikes first. Since Xeno already did in X-Force.

    Yeah current Xavier would chain her and telepathically push her to tell them what's going to happen next. Honestly, precogs of this caliber could be a resource as big as Moira.

    So the suspicions were true, Mystique is Irene back up and if they dont comply, well...party time.

    This is going to end with Mystique in the pit or exiled after trying to destroy Krakoa.

    Really enjoyed this issue I would say it was one of the best so far. It makes sense why Mystique got "lost" which was not like Raven at all. Magneto and Xavier will likely be the cause of her about face and their own downfall. You dont f@#* with Mystique. Destiny has been a pleasure to read.

    Burn them, Raven.

    Burn them all.

    And do it slowly, so they don't forget how it feels.

    I thought this was the best of Hickman's X-Men issues yet.

    I like how we are getting more details on small instances that occurred during House of X.

    Mystique's journey to bring back Destiny is so far the most interesting plot point for me.

    An eventual confrontation between Destiny & Moira is mouth watering!

    I have to admit, i would never guessed that Destiny would become this big player in the X-Men mythos, a very minor character that has been death for decades.
