I love the way Hickman can make you feel so dumb for not figuring out in advance what he's put right there in front of you.

It makes so much sense.

Also:

- Holy shit, Moira's journal entry re: Magneto actually addressed the thing that stood out to me from the very first issue: "man, X-writers sure have mined the island-as-mutant-sanctuary/mutant-prison metaphor over the years. (See also: Muir, Genosha, Madripoor, Asteroid M... Australia...)"

- They bred Proteus specifically for the reincarnation project. :shock:

wow, it is such a small but dead on detail that after Moria dies in the Powers of X X3 timeline (Moria 6), the next timeline is the one she becomes a black ops assassin to kill the Trasks in hopes of stopping Nimrod. Plus, I imagine imagine after a thousand years, most of it imprisoned, she'd be on the warpathToggle Spoiler

so I might have missed them, but have Rogue or Gambit shown up, like even in a panel? given their prominence in the line before the reboot, I've thought they're absence was strange. Maybe Kelly Thompson is writing a book with them for wave 2. I was really bummed that she wasn't any of the wave 1 booksToggle Spoiler

something I'm still not clear on is if the timeline with rasputin and the cardinal and nimrod and all that was life 9, why does percival as he's dying say the "while you slept, the world changed” speech? isn't that first said by Xavier in life 10?
i was just going to suggest that maybe everybody should cool out maybe

It's the epigraph to HoX #1, right? There's no note indicating which Xavier said it.

It's clearly a message that's crossing through the timelines.

Don't forget that Namor said it in the FF run. Quite possible that it's something imprinted to mutants' unconscious.

:D

This was fantastic. Loved the payoff for the Librarian/Phalanx storyline. Got chills at "so ended the sixth life of Moira X." Moira and Wolverine repeating that dynamic across multiple lives, how it always winds up he's left to kill her.Toggle Spoiler

Seems that way. The callback to Moira 9 and Wolverine's "send me on my way/this is what I do" conversation was touching. Incredible how Hickman and the artists have managed to give all these deaths - Moira 9, Moira 6, Nightcrawler & Wolverine, Jean Grey... - such palpable weight despite the fact that they're openly temporary.

So the Phalanx or the thing it ascends to can go between Moira's various lives/timelines. Maybe Moira has been using this, and during the ascension in her sixth life she planted like a virus that will pay off in her tenth life. Like if the Phalanx shows up in life ten and all seems lost she activates this reset command that she introduced in life 6.

"Not once in all my lives have you changed./Thank you./It's not a compliment."

Moira 10 and Xavier walking into the sunset/Wolverine killing Moira 6 framed the same way

God, so it's just weekly x-titles from here on out? This is already an all-time great X-Men run and we're only a few months in. I'm so excited for what comes next, it would be fun to stay in this status quo for awhile and do some adventures in this setup as opposed to about this setup or existential threats to it. Like the first few arcs of Morrison's Batman & Robin when Bruce Wayne was gone.

Oh shit Wolverine is the virus Moira delivers in her sixth life, he gets absorbed into the Phalanx the day after he kills her. The payoff for that is going to be awesome.Toggle Spoiler

The actual humans / mutants don’t ascend - the Phalanx aren’t interested in organics, the flesh is just energy for the phalanx to absorb. The post-humans are uploading their consciousnesses via robot bodies, which is what actually ascends.Toggle Spoiler
