    Lol, Captain Krakoa will be revealed as villain at the end of issue 7 and then defeated in next issue right before soft relaunch of #1 issue of a new arc with Larraz after Wolverine event.

    He did gain about 40 pounds of muscle mass when he was Erik the Red (LOL) so maybe. But, infiltrating your own group seems kind of stupid.

    A third option might be staring us in the face - what if Captain Krakoa is Krakoa? In addition to being the island the mutants are living on, Krakoa is a sentient mutant being - one which Professor X and Cypher have been experimenting, cultivating, and training to expand its consciousness to the point that it has manifested a roughly Groot-like body on several occasions. Krakoa's flowers are known to have special abilities, and Captain Krakoa not-so-coincidentally has flowers around his headpiece - could this be the next stage in Krakoa's existence?

    According to Marvel, Captain Krakoa will debut in December 22's X-Men #6, followed by the just-revealed X-Men #7 on January 19, 2022.

    First of all, the name "Captain Krakoa" doesn't sound good, frankly. It's a terrible name.

    I don't think it's Cyke in disguise, it would be a terrible twist. I guess it's a brand new mutant. Hopefully...

    I just don't buy Cyke stepping away from the X-Men, remember his answer to Exodus, maybe the investigation zeroes in on Scott being a clone and so going forward Krakoan council will clone him with other powers to keep humans guessing after realising CapK can't be Cyclops..

    And how the hell being a brand new mutant arriving and taking over the X-men makes any sense?

    If Cyclops is really replaced, I do wonder where he will turn up next. I don't think Cap K is Cyke, de solicitation text of the issue of the issue before...

    The solicit fits perfectly: Cyclops is against Captain Krakoa because he wants to continue as Cyclops. The alternative makes zero sense

    I can't see the likes of Jean, Lorna, Rogue... well the whole team really, just being okay with letting some new mutant lead. Gotta be some kind of twist with Scott or someone known. But even someone known taking over leadership so quickly feels odd.
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    When I read the thread's title, it made me think that Betsy is going by "Captain Krakoa" now lol.

    Oh well, the name is... Not really sounding catchy.
