…mutant powers are lost.
She just wants to help mutants, but curing them!

However, Nimrod doesn’t honor their deal and…

…reminding them that now that Moira is human they can’t kill her per the laws of Krakoa.
The future remains not fully clear with three likely paths before them.
In the end, Cypher replaces Moira’s missing arm with some of Warlock’s mutant tech and she goes on the run.
Magneto and Professor X are reborn…
…with Emma Frost revealing their secrets including Moira X to all of Krakoa’s mutants.
The Quiet Council…
…heading into the new Immortal X-Men series as part of…
…Destiny of X.
