    Also funny that TPTB forgot about MJ when Zendaya is possibly the biggest headturner at the recent Met Galas.

    She is one of the up and coming legendary children, but she is not Rihanna.

    Those pop-celebrities were just fun add-ins, for some publicity and " gala numbers"...they really mean nothing to the story HiX-Man is directing.
    Namor, the Illuminati, the F4, (all characters he's written) have been part of or will be part of his big plans...Peter Parker isn't. Nor is Mary Jane. Or the Inhumans. They're just not relevant.
    And Fenris are the Black Bishops they are Krakoans...no invitation needed.

    How are Conan O'Brien, Scott Adsit and Patton Oswalt helpful for those instead of say, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and BTS? Maybe I shouldn't be offended for MJ then coz apparently she was out of Emma and Marvel's budget looking at some of these "celebs" who did turn up and who retweeted and reshared the (overtly white and male) "VIP" guest list on social media.

    So what did the X-Men say or do to piss off NPR and women's soccer?

    Which issue did Rihanna cameo?
    "The White Queen welcomes you, TO DIE!"

    Emma is a rich, capitalist white woman…

    Nazi’s are not too offbrand for her.

    But she draws the line at people from queens.

    I see it the other way around. These "celebs" are featured for their own publicity, not Krakoa's. Just like in real life with celeb appearances. Agents and managers request invitations for their clients. Emma couldn't care less.
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    Well...non-racist or misogynistically speaking...they're probably not that helpful, which was not really the point of them being there.
    Why is there such interest in the most banal, unimportant aspect of the gala...like the celeb guest list and those not invited?

    Yeah...other than some good PR...Emma doesn't care.

    Yup. Sometimes an event benefits from its celebrity guests, and sometimes it's the celebrity guests who benefit from being seen at the event.
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    It might be that it was easier to use certain likenesses over others.
    Dark does not mean deep.

    I don't care about Peter Parker...

    So...was it actual fireworks, Emma showed to the guests there at the end? Because when Psylocke relayed the mental imagery to the Hellions they didn't "see" any fireworks.

    I think the ‘fireworks’ is just live streaming the Mars terraforming - maybe from Jean’s eyes

    Peter Parker couldn't get acces through the gateway, he is still there waiting hahaha
    I enjoy anything Marvel cosmic, especially Thanos or Dark Phoenix related, loved the original Uncanny Avengers series.

    (Marvel/DC fan for 42+ years)

    That's what I'm thinking as well. It's the vision that has everyone reeling as they leave the gala.
