Powers of X (2019) #3

Powers of X (2019) #3

What is Marvel Unlimited?

As opposed to covering multiple timelines, this week’s POWERS OF X #3 focuses on the Sol colony’s surviving mutants in X², the X-Men: Year One Hundred. 100 years have passed since the inception of Charles Xavier’s dream, and now, a small band of rebel upstarts is all that remains of the mutant population.

Mutants

Cardinal and Rasputin’s ties to Apocalypse are laid out here, and the presence of their “mother” is teased too, a being that is, or belongs to the Akkaba, the primeval clan that’s safeguarded En Sabah Nur since ancient Egypt.

Akkaba

In an attack against the Man-Machine Supremacy, Cardinal and Rasputin, alongside Xorn and a chimera, North, set ablaze the Church of the Ascendancy, a religious institution that has now begun injecting humans with a tech virus that transforms organic life into half-machines.

Absolute Carnage Vs. Deadpool (2019) #1

Absolute Carnage Vs. Deadpool (2019) #1

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Deadpool gets a taste of his own medicine when he checks into the Ravencroft Institute in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE VS. DEADPOOL #1. Greeting him at reception? A whole army of Carnage-ized foot soldiers, all converted worshippers to the Cult of Carnage! And since Deadpool has hosted 5(!) separate symbiotes, he becomes a prime target for these codex hunters.

Terrific

Dark Carnage has put a massive target on Deadpool’s back, and not even Spider-Man can protect Wade Wilson from some of the Marvel Universe’s most dangerous forces.

Too busy not dying.

Plus, we have an exciting addition to the back catalog with Sabretooth’s 1993 series! Wolverine’s most bitter enemy is in the cross-katana of the Hand, and this savage showdown pushes Victor Creed to his outermost limits, physically and mentally.

This series is also noteworthy for establishing key moments in Creed’s origin, from a horrifying childhood in chains…

Origin

To his deep and involved history with ex-lover Mystique and “ol’ buddy” Wolverine.
