    Default Gwenpool on Krakoa questions...

    Has it been stated anywhere what her purpose is on Krakoa? Any writers express having a plan for her? Her mutation is localized reality manipulation? Is her code/chosen name just her name without the ‘e’ at the end?

    Um doesn't KraKoa have enough female derivatives of male heros on its shores?

    No, but I don’t think she has one besides living there.

    Any writers express having a plan for her?

    None so far. Apparently KT, who's writing Deadpool #6 where he goes to Krakoa, hasn’t been keeping up with Gwenpool so she probably won’t even be in that.

    Her mutation is localized reality manipulation?

    I think that may be the best way to define it, in-universe. She’s a 4th wall-breaker like Deadpool and She-Hulk but in a far more abstract way. She can remove characters from reality*, reach outside of panels, observe the comic book from her Gutter Space, and morph characters into other incarnations*

    *These aren’t permanent-basis powers and, if they aren’t reversed on their own, can simply be reversed if a writer wants to use that characters again.

    Is her code/chosen name just her name without the ‘e’ at the end?

    Yes.

    She is inevitably going to be a guest star/team member in X-Factor.

    Or maybe Apoccy will sacrifice her to open a portal to somewhere?

    She was Gwen Stacy variant cover turned into actual character, called Gwen Poole with not relationship to Stacy. She comes (came now?) from the "real world" and could alter the comic book world because of it. During Young Avengers she mentioned she felt her history have been retconned and now she was confirmed to be a mutant so I guess her origin doesn't really apply, but I haven't read that comic so I don't know how that was reconciled.

    In her conception, Gwen is a human from the "real world" and that is the origin of her powers.

    In her latest comic, Kamala exposes the theory that perhaps Gwen is simply a confused mutant with reality warping powers that she could not control and therefore believes that she comes from the "real world", it would be a defense mechanism.

    So you can believe either of the two theories, it is not clear that either one is truer than the other.

    1) Gwen may be a reality warping human from another reality that is using her powers to be a mutant and live in Krakoa (because Gwen needs to be in popular comic books that are sold to survive and Krakoa is the most popular right now).

    2) Gwen is really a mutant with reality warping powers that she couldn't control and the first theory is simply her subconscious altering reality for one that she can understand.

    Correct! Some others get whammied away to the Fortnite world, and Gwen is left behind and says it's a tie-in.

    I’m sure it pleases Gwen to be hanging around a-listers like that.

    I hope this is one day proven to be 100% canon because every other theory/origin story is totes ridiculous. But, in her defense, she is essentially a Deadpool derived character so ridiculous comes with the territory.

    Other then the meta elements, she's not really a Deadpool derivative; that's part of the joke, her name just happens to be Gwen Poole.
    Context is king.

    X-23's most basic surface level characteristic that any idiot should grasp: Stoicism.
    I don't demand that her every minor appearance be a nuance in-depth examination of her character, but is it to much to ask she be written in Archetype?! This is storytelling 101! If you want people to stay invested in a character, you need to, at the bare minimum, write them such a way that they can plausibly be believed to be the same character!

    I get that, but if Deadpool wasn't created as the wisecracking 4th wall breaking lunatic we all love then there would be no joke for Gwenpool's existence to be based on.
