New in Marvel Unlimited…
In the series finale to HOUSE OF X by Jonathan Hickman, Pepe Larraz, Marte Gracia, and David Curiel, the mutant’s sovereign homeland is established, and, as covered in last week’s POWERS OF X (2019) #5, all past scuffles between mutants are absolved. New allies like Sebastian Shaw, Apocalypse, and Exodus are welcomed on Krakoa… even in positions of power.
More seats are filled on the “Quiet Council” too, Krakoa’s ruling body. Comprised of 14 seats, including one for Krakoa itself, the Council aims to represent diverse interests in the mutant world. We’re given a handy guide to see who sits where:
With most of its positions fleshed out by issue’s end, the court can swing into session. And its first recipient of justice has a loaded case based on his actions in HOUSE OF X #1...
Going off Sabretooth’s trial, it’s fair to say that the Quiet Council is mutantkind’s unanimous voice. The judges and juries of Krakoa, they are also responsible for the laws borne of this mutant state. The first 3 are laid out here—pretty cut and dry:
But after some long deliberation ‘round the table, it’s time to party. The ‘future X-Men’ storyline will be wrapped in next week’s POWERS OF X #6, and will conclude this entire 12-part saga. But for the present, everyone can kick back and enjoy Dazzler’s lightshow.
Keep up weekly with our HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X Reading List, and see what other Unlimited titles we’ll be reading this week!
