Powers of X (2019) #6

Powers of X (2019) #6

What is Marvel Unlimited?

“And now we build.”

So says Professor Xavier in the series finale to POWERS OF X (2019), the concluding issue to the interconnected, 12-part saga HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X. You can read this seminal arc by Jonathan Hickman, Pepe Larraz, and R.B. Silva here, which will lay the groundwork for the Dawn of X lineup, rolling into the MU library next week.

In last week’s HOUSE OF X #6, the mutants came home to Krakoa, built a government, and threw a rager… but the fate of Moira X and the future X-Men remained up in the air.

The first pages in POWERS OF X #6 directly mirror the opener in POWERS OF X #1, a full circle beat that makes a lot more sense now, given how this series is timeline-driven.

, or the X-Men: Year One Thousand, are in the spotlight here. The Librarian we’ve been following since issue #1 is the architect of a mutant “Preserve,” and Moira X is now an inhabitant. She’s also entering what could be her final life cycle.

Preserve

For those of you who have been following the written guides to the HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X universe, we’re given another infographic that explains the next phase of human evolution, as theorized by the Librarian:

Humanity

While this is just touched upon in the issue, it stands to reason that it will be vital info down the line. Ripped pages from Moira’s journal are important bread crumbs too, although bits and pieces have been redacted…
