    Default Thanos, the Black Order, and the Cabal vs. Krakoa

    So Thanos decides to invade and conquer the island. Since Thanos wants the island, there'll be no full-blown island. Do the mutants survive the invasion?

    Team Thanos (616 versions):
    - The Black Order
    - The Cabal: Namor, Terrax, Maximus, Black Swan

    Vs.

    - Krakoa itself
    - Every known citizen* of Krakoa, except for spoilers:
    Franklin Richards
    end of spoilers

    *Therefore, not counting mutants who primarily live elsewhere, such as Kitty Pride (seafaring nomad), Pete Wisdom (UK), and Cannonball (Chandilar)

    Not sure whether Kid Gladiator is on Krakoa, but if he is, he should be able to distract Terrax and Thanos long enough, and I think there’s plenty of telepaths powerful enough to protect the likes of Legion, Proteus etc. until reality becomes like a damp rag in a stiff breeze.

    Which will basically leave Thanos, who can essentially lolnope that stuff.

    At that point, it probably gets real.

    Does the Summer House count as part of Krakoa? So do Gabe, Jean, Rachel, Cable, Hope etc. get involved? Y’know, the everyone in Scott’s family more powerful than him except his Dad.

    To the latter question, yes, the Summer House is also involved. I also count Havok as someone more powerful than Scott, and the fact that he defeated Hulk twice and fought one on one with Vulcan (who's a match for Black Bolt) points that way.

    But it'd be interesting to see Maximus and Gabe trade tips on fighting Blackagar.

    Oh, I’d absolutely agree that Alex is more powerful. Likewise Nate Grey.

    And even Madelyne Pryor, his ex-wife-who-was-a-clone-of-his-girlfriend-and-who-was-the-mother-to-his-son-an-alternate-reality-version-of-whom-recreated-her-with-his-mind-after-her-death-just-to-be-his-own-foster-mother-and-conscience-despite-this-‘conscience’-having-previously-raised-a-literal-hell-on-Earth-in-a-fit-of-pique.

    Anyone in mainstream comics have a more messed up family than Scott Summers?

    And that’s without his psychotic youngest brother who took over an intergalactic empire for shits and giggles, and his daughter who was never even born in this reality and who at some point after retiring from being a mutant hunter and possessing the Phoenix Force, travelled to the future to be a god-priestess of a religion for her own brother, and who may at some point in this reality give birth to Hyperstorm after having a relationship with Franklin Richards who is kinda very underage.

    The Summers are pretty messed up gene pool/blood ties. Saw a family tree branch thing where they are related to Magneto and the Rasputins ( Funny choice Marvel, your x men heroes with that name. Given it’s a nick name meaning Debaunched One.)

    I haven't followed CLAMP in over a decade, but maybe the Kinomotos from Card Captor Sakura? IIRC, its a family line which involves a cosmically powerful wizard who reincarnated as two different people simultaneously (in order to weaken his power so that he isn't held prisoner by uncontrollable precognition), the universe creating a clone of her son to take said son's place when he jumps into another universe (though said clone technically doesn't actually exist), and involved causing the universe to reboot because things got too weird. And I don't mean that the authors decided to start over, I mean that things happened which caused reality itself to basically undo itself.

    Oh, and maybe also the Joestars from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. The current arc of the manga takes place a couple of arcs after one of their villains rebooted the universe in a failed attempt to erase the Joestar bloodline and involves spoilers:
    one character of the Joestar bloodline (who is kinda-sorta either this iteration's version of Jotaro Kujo going by his place on the family tree or Yoshikage Kira going by his name/personality/stand) being fused with another person who is apparently also a member of the Joestar bloodline somehow (he seems to at least partially be this iteration's equivalent of Josuke Higashikata, which is the name that the fusion is given), and that's not even getting into all the Joestar blowbys caused by a certain villain hijacking the corpse of a previous arc's hero.
    end of spoilers The least weird part of the whole thing is probably how the original version of Josuke is technically the uncle of the original version of Jotaro, despite Jotaro being older than him, because that's just due to Joseph Joestar not being able to keep it in his pants.
