    Yeah and the reason is moira. In x-men #4 you could how for xavier and especially magneto it didn't really make a difference for them if precogs are allowed on the island while moira was very adamant about not resurrecting destiny. I think part of the reason for moira is also because destiny killed her and not just because she'll be able to tell krakoa is just a temporarily safe haven for mutantkind.
    So what does that have to do with jumbo carnation lol

And I am looking forward to seeing the complex machine he has built be taken apart peace by piece like he did in Pax Romana and red mass for mars. I donít get how you people who say you love Hickman donít know anything about his books or works or themes?

And none of what you presented as patterns of anything to do with his story structure which you criticized in your previous post. Bottom line is you've come into this thread with nothing but assumptions and a general dislike of how Hickman is telling his story.
    Thatís not what I said! Ok just said I was not criticizing Hickman at all I like dox I just donít think people get that itís a tragedy

    A few of us have had this exact conversation once already.

    If you are really interested in what folks think, I could try to dig up one of the many many threads that it drug off of course.

    I mean it's really not. Much like his final run in his Avengers run I'm pretty sure the theme of X-Men will be about hope. And just like in those previous runs there were tragic moments within the story ultimately it was about superheroes triumphing over themselves and over the bad guy to continue to uphold their ideals

Either that or he gave one of his swords to someone else, as you state, and is just holding a second sword that has no name.
    He might be getting a pass based on their collective history.

    Can I just throw this out there? I think there are two twilight swords. Cause the split happened forever ago but surtur still has his sword. So there must be two right? And is the “higher power” that annihilation/genesis serving surtur? Holder of the sword of doom destroyer of worlds. Guy who tried to destroy Otherworld a bunch and gave Morgan le fay her powers. Plus I could be wrong but I think ameth might come from journey into mystery

    I’m going to wager exactly no mention will be made of Surtur, or that he obtained/stole the Twilight Sword from the enemy; and that the enemy is probably from the First Iteration of Mutantkind

    I would also say that Poccy might be kicked off the council, but I imagine his blue ass will be borrowed, like Thanos, to help promote the Eternals for a bit

    Well that seems an incredible waste! An Important piece of lore and itís probably only there because itís got the word twilight in its name. Cause do you get it? The dawn is ending itís twilight now! HAVE SURTUR SHOW UP

    Isn't that part of being leader of Otherworld? All of them shown were that powerful. Merlin and his daughter were the other two.

    Great issue and can't wait to read what's next^^

    If existing Marvel lore was an issue, you’d need to account for how the hell Poccy having Four Horsemen and the use of magic prior to his pact with the Celestials (who just happen to have Seeds matching his kids mantles*) works out

    Besides, we already know what/who Hickman’s reset button is (and it ain’t Moira) so setting up a Twilight of X seems premature when there is yet to be a Day/Reign of X (probably to follow Hickman’s contribution to the Reckoning War) before the Twilight/Night of X

    * though it explains why he never used the counterseeds at least
