Krakoa’s Hidden History
Read the next issue of ‘Powers of X,’ now in Marvel Unlimited. See what other titles are on our digital pull list this week.
POWERS OF X #4, the next chapter in writer Jonathan Hickman’s HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X saga, joins our digital comics mega-library, and with it, the knowledge of how exactly Charles Xavier and Magneto established the sovereign nation of Krakoa.
With the help of a few friends…
A visit to Bar Sinister sees Magneto and Xavier enter a truce-like agreement with one of their oldest foes… but when you need a genetic catalogue of the entire mutant race’s DNA, there’s really no better option.
A mutant polyglot who can interpret any written or spoken language in this galaxy or the next, Doug Ramsey alone understands the depth of history Krakoa carries in its roots. An eerie conversation with the sentient island informs Cypher that Krakoa is actually halved, a portion of a land body that was once an ancient site of war called Okkara, or “One Land.” And you may recognize the “warrior-god in blue” that Krakoa credits as its savior.
Cypher also gets orders to develop a national mutant language. And while he’ll be its originator, Krakoa is its gatekeeper. Through some sort of bio-download, Cypher’s plan is that, Krakoan, the mutant language, will be embedded into the mainframe of the island’s ecosystem. It all sounds terribly complex, but thankfully we’re given a helpful infographic of Cypher’s plan and Krakoa’s current capabilities.

PICKS OF THE WEEK
Meet far future Thor, All-Father of a dying universe and a broken realm. Superstar creators Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic continue their “God Butcher” arc from THOR: GOD OF THUNDER (2012), continuing a much-older Thor’s quest to slay the immortal-killing Gorr. And, making matters worse, the wielder of All-Black the Necrosword has allowed his blade to fall into a trickster god’s hands.
