    Default Will the Crucible be scrapped or continued?

    Without Apocalypse, who'll be doing the Crucible? Will there be a Crucible?
    Will a new killer... er... officiator be making the cuts? Exodus? He's fanatic enough. One of the mutants who needs to feed on other mutants/humans: Selene, Emplate, or Krakoa itself?

    Will it be scrapped and another way to decide who should be resurrected with their powers be conceived? I hope that barbarity gets scrapped in favour of whatever faith Nightcrawler is pulling out of his blue furred butt.

    What do you think?

    I don't know, but I think there's good conflict in the decision making process. Would be interesting to see who spoke up for each side.

    Just do it with Exodus, he's ruthless enough, he's connected to Apocalypse and he's old enough.

    I'm guessing Kurt's new religion will address this, yeah. My guess is something about even if you have infinite lives the one you're living still matters etc

    It will be continued but under protest is my guess.
    You brought back Wolverine

    They should do a Battle Royal or King of The Ring Tournament.

    That or Thunderdome between viable contestants who want to be resurrected. Two mutants enter, one mutant leaves.

    But if they're trying to get their powers back they'd both want to lose.

    I thinks theres a couple of people who could do the Crucible: Magik, Bishop, Psylocke, Nightcrawler, Azazel, Orphan Maker, Outlaw, Frenzy, Calisto, Marrow

    Isn't the last one considered a joke of a fighter by writers, who even depowered New X-men could beat? Callisto isn't the deadliest fighter around either to test someone's mettle.

    How about reverse Bene Gesserit test? With the people who pass putting their hands in the box getting poked by the Gom Jabber.

    Or if all else fails, just have someone watch the Star Wars Holiday Special (or the trilogy of specials which Mojo got his hands on) multiple times without screaming.

    As much as I think it should go, all bets are that it continues and Exodus is my prime candidate as head butcher. I suppose it depends on who fills what Counsel spots, but assuming any go to any Arrakoans it will clearly continue. My expectation is that Krakoa continues to be ethically dubious until we reach a breaking point causing Fall of X (FoX) or whatever to end this status quo.

    If Sabertooth wasn't in the hole, he would make a great combatant.

    He can heal and he is a good enough fighter to keep Logan on his toes.

    It should be someone a powerless mutant couldn't defeat, no matter how good a fighter they are. So probably someone really good in combat and with enhanced physical capacity.

    Isca will do it. They can’t win against her without powers and she comes from the survival of the fittest philosophy.

    Exodus is practically as invincible as Apocalypse but perhaps there is a change in how the Crucible is made.
