There are rules. Rules are meant to be broken, or at least bent out of shape. Bend them yoo much however and you’ll be in The Pit, Welcome to Krakoa Shore, the new reality TV show set on the mutant paradise of Karkoa and it’s neighbouring planets, pocket dimensions, dimensional divergences and hell domains that border it via a series of well placed Krakoan gates. When they aren’t being turned into Kaiju that is. So how have things been changing today? Well the big difference between pre and post-Krakoa on mutants is that they can not get resurrected after they die. Properly, officially, courtesy of Professort X, Cerebro and the mutants known as The Five. But… there have been complications.
When you die in Hell, where do you go? Apparently, just like Otherworld, you might resurrect wrong, so wait till you get home to die if you can…
Quentin Quite, Kid Omega, has been experimenting with The Five, esurrecting mutants without brains (no, not Toad) for Quentin Quire to then control.
And he has quite the collection of meat puppets with a certain colour coded theme.
The Krakoan equivalent to a garage full of sports cars, I guess. But even Quentin can see things are not what they were.
Danger is creating lots and lots of robot Wolverines rather than going the fleshy route.
While Mister Sinister is also creating new bodies through his own genetic experiments, no Five required.
While some mutants deaths are even planned for, safe in the knowledge that resurrection will be fast and automatic.
Or even used as a way to extract information from an unwilling mutant.
Is everyone taking notes? There will be a quiz…
But the resurrection protocol have courted the attention of folks you didn;t want to court. Defined as excessive deviancy, the Eternals are coming to commit genocide…
It looks like the Five might be about to be on overtime…
Are thh days of Krakoan resurrection numbered?
