House of X # 6 Spoilers
So what happened in the last issue of House of X by Jonathan Hickman and Pepe Larraz? Here are the major House of X # 6 spoilers!
Spoiler alert BTW
So in this issue, we see a flashback before all the events of the book with Charles Xavier, Magneto and Moira McTaggert getting ready to address the world that nation of Krakoa is legit and that the Krakoa drugs are about to be ready for distribution. It’s also the exact moment Professor X wore that weird looking Cerebro helmet he’s been running around in throughout the series.
We then head back to the semi-present where we finally get to meet the council of 12 who make the decisions in Krakoa. These are some of the more influential mutants in the entire X-Men lore; some of them their toughest opponents in the past before Xavier called them in and gave them their own dominion.
And awhile back there was a promotional art that had the 12 council members but it was hard to believe that it was such but now with this House of X # 6 spoilers post, its definitely confirmed. These 12 members are:
Sorry, its actually just 11 out of the 12…
- Charles Xavier
- Mister Sinister
- Jean Grey
- Emma Frost
- Sebastian Shaw
The twelfth and final member would have to be Moira X apparently. Why they opted not to reveal her as a member is still the biggest mystery.
So the council are brought together to decide the fate of Victor Creed aka Sabretooth, who was sprung out of prison by Emma Frost a few issues back. And now he’s back in Krakoa but under lock down thanks to the mutant island.
The council meeting not only deals with Sabretooth but at the same time lay down the actual rules for existing and living in the mutant island nation. Before they pass judgment for Creed, the 12 agree on the rules…
Fighting till the end, Creed threatens the council and their next generation and it involves bloody murder.
And what happens to him? The mutants decide that they cannot bring Creed back to the human society and he’s too dangerous to let back into the rest of the mutant community in the island. So the next best thing they can do is exile him.
They send him to the bottom of Krakoa as an exile. He’ll be alive but won’t be able to do anything. At least they didn’t kill him. There are three or four people in that room who could easily vaporize him.
After the meeting, we get to see the celebration outside the meeting hall where we see various interactions from some of the more important mutant characters. We get to see a happy Wolverine – Jean Grey – Cyclops with beer…
Wolverine giving Gorgon beer (remember these two have bad blood)…
There’s also a few panels with Jean and Cyclops and another with Jean and Emma Frost…
A happy Charles and Magneto…
and a brooding Apocalypse…
Weird thing is there’s nothing that points out to closing out the story. This puts everything squarely on the shoulders of Powers of X # 6. Hopefully Hickman wraps up all the loose point next issue. Maybe Moira wakes up on her sixth or eleventh life after her death at the hands of Wolverine in her ninth life, with the current story which starts under the banner “Dawn of X”.
