Marvel Comics and X-Men #16 Spoilers and Review follows.

X Of Swords Fallout, A New Détente and New X-Men Loom For Reign Of X!

The book has a few more variant covers in addition to the above.

Plus the main cover.

The mutant islands of Krakoa and Arakko are destined to reunite as Okkara…

…in a convoluted fashion…


…that is successful in brining Arrako to the Earth plane, but…

…but the reunification with Krakoa does not come to pass mutually it seems.

The two islands commune through their avatars…

…proclaiming that a reunification will not happen.

Arakko also has more mutants than Krakoa which…

…causes complications for the Krakoan mutant government aka the Quiet Council requiring a meeting an Arakko mutant…

…to see if a détente is possible.

We don’t get that answer yet, but we do see Cyclops and Marvel Girl turn down seats on the Quiet Council in order to rebuild the X-Men by way of…

…a Krakoan election that will happen annually beginning with the first one!

The Pulse:

Lots of set-up it feels with this issue, but I am enjoying the politics. Decent art though. 6 out of 10.
