    Thanks for the update, Chris!

    Isn't, like, Krakatoa or whatever, living beneath the new X-School?

    He's not buried in a hole. They just placed him in some container in Beast's reinforced sub basement lab. Beast is still working on a developing a quicker cure.

    Spoilers?













    It sounds like a set up for a future plot...Store him away in a stasis tube beneath their base to be a life-sucking plot point later.

    Its Krakoa...LOL! Krakatoa is the real island that was obliterated by its volcano in the 1880s. Krakoa sucks mutant life force and power similarly to Pointer...The X-Men are storing up all the life-sucking mutants?

    lol. Ooooopz. Yeah, just read that "new X-Men save original X-Men from living island" thing [ "Hi Mik!" ] recently, so I might have gotten my Kraks confused. Any chance it is related to the Kraken in Pirates of the Caribbean?

    Krakoa is living (Mutant) earth, is it not? I recall reading that their (Jean Grey School for Higher Learning) entire grounds are now animated, as they are all part of this "Kraka-kapow!" thingy.

    I'm just guessing, but I am thinking that these two (Krak-man and Whiney-Pants) are gonna be a B-A-D mix in the future somewheres soon.

    Hi!
    I've always figured the X-Men's island was sort of named after the real one you got confused with.
    The Kraken is a genuine mythical creature; been the bane of sailors for centuries.
    Science is starting to catch up, as they're beginning to find evidence that it could be based on something real... there've been creatures washed up on shores, the colossal squid, etc...

    Well, as you would have read, the whole island came to life - it isn't just the earth, but the flora and fauna of that island.

    Sounds familiar, but I don't know.

    Either that or completely forgotten.
    They could build it up as a vampire-like story, with people getting more and more tired all the time, not knowing why...

    Interesting. Haven't read Wolverine & The X-Men so I didn't know Krakoa was currently living underneath the school grounds.

    Unlike a lot of classic comic book works, I thoroughly enjoy it.
    It's a sort of dystopian future Elseworlds, in which Cable Magog has led Superman into retirement, which makes most of the classics retire.
    It's really good.
    Indeed it is really good, but didn't Mark Waid write it? Busiek and Ross did Marvels for, well, Marvel.

    Quite literally, he IS the school grounds. And a very nice defense mechanism when attacked, i might add. Although Wolverine tried to convince him to incorporate a "beer gardens" and was ticked that Krak didn't go for it.

    Knew I'd get that wrong!
    (Checks his GN.) Yep, you're right, it's Waid, and Marvels is Busiek.
    I kind of always think of Kingdom Come as a follow-up to Marvels; Alex Ross going 'I did that for Marvel, let's see what I can do for you, DC' and forget they had writers.
