    Default X-Men Monday 9/28

    AIPT: I’m sure Glob himself is upset. Now, speaking of tarot cards, is there a reason the Hellion Tarot is allowed on Krakoa even though she’s a precog? X-Fan Nick wanted to know.

    Jordan: Well, first of all, the use of tarot–the not person–the cards thing, I think is kind of intentional in the sense that it’s working against that. That said, Tini does like to talk about the fact that tarot cards are not the future-telling cards. That’s not like the purpose of them. They are mostly a tool to examine the world and yourself. And you can use them to glean information that can possibly affect the future.

    Now, generally speaking in stories, they are portrayed as 100% magical and they can literally tell the future. And in defense of that, yes, in this story, she literally turns over a card and sees a picture of people who are going to be in this story. So clearly, there’s some magic in these cards. Clearly, they have some foresight into the future. But I think that Tarot, the character, is not the world’s most powerful precog and that’s not the main thrust of her power.

    And also, technically, she was alive before Krakoa started and the not wanting precogs on Krakoa isn’t like a public law. Nobody knows that that’s happening. Because if they did, they would go, “What? Why?” So I think it’s more of a subtle thing. So, my guess would be that they have done what they can to keep her from finding out the important things in some nefarious Xavier-and-Magneto way. And that if she ever did die again, it would be a question of where they would put her in the ranking of the resurrection waiting list.

    Is Lorna carrying Rockslide's head around?

    Yay! More Lorna. Also I'm glad somebody remembered that Proteus is using Xavier's husk to contain himself.

    I'm sure by raising the stakes he means that they'll probably make it very difficult for the mutants to access the resurrection ability

    wouldnt it make more sense for him to use logan's? if there is no effort in providing him a stable body he might as well be using his own body, I don't see the point in proteus wearing Xavier, I know for a fact that Moira did map his genome in the 90's, it was part of an excalibur storyline

    Well the exact wording is "genetic base of Charles Xavier" but I'm sure Hickman wouldn't have slipped that in there if he didn't want people to make a connection between the two. Something about Xavier's DNA probably makes a host created from his genetic base more stable then just your run-of-the-mill husk, for Proteus at least.

    That's how I'm reading it.

    I'm really intrigued and excited to see just how the Otherworld Kingdoms will be incorporated into the Krakoa Era going forward post XoS.
    We are MUTANT...One people. One tribe. One family...Krakoa, FOREVER!!!

    I'd have preferred it if Glob has died instead of Rockslide.

    "I don’t think they are significant enough changes–unless you’re the world’s biggest Glob Herman fan, which I know there are a lot of now."

    Probably for the best. I get it's to sidestep the whole death arc/resurrection arc tropes but it'll be good to have a little narrative tension when a character dies.

    Awww what do you have against Glob Herman?

    If they ever do another animated series and he gets to be in it, I always imagine in my head that he sounds like Alphonse Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist.
