X-men Supreme Issue 86: Cambrian Explosion Part 3 is LIVE!
Throughout the history of X-men and Marvel Comics, the conflicts that do the most damage aren't always the conflicts that have the greatest impact. The X-men have experienced more than their share of destruction throughout their 50-year history. The X-men Supreme fanfiction series has had them experience plenty of destruction as well. But it's the impact on the characters themselves that make this conflicts resonate. Stories like the Phoenix Saga, Overlord, and Revenge of Weapon X involved many personal elements for many characters. For an event worthy of the X-men's 50th anniversary, the potential for destruction and impact must be fitting.
I feel like I have done just that with X-men Supreme's biggest event to date, the Cambrian Explosion. In the span of only two issues, this event has had a number of events converge from various segments of this fanfiction series. Leading this convergence is Magneto, whose vision has changed very little since the beginning of X-men Supreme. While his methods have evolved, his goal has remained the same. He seeks to ensure the survival and dominance of the mutant race. He believed that the Cambrian had the power to do that. But in his rush to tap that power before humanity attacked again, he unleashed it on the world. Now every human and mutant in the world of X-men Supreme is about to be affected.
This landmark event for the X-men Supreme fanfiction series is about to reach its darkest hour. The X-men didn't just fail to stop Magneto from unleashing the Cambrian. Some of their own teammates consumed by its influence. Their only option now is to retreat. But they can't hide forever. The Cambrian has the power to reach every corner of the planet. The X-men and even the Brotherhood need to find a way to stop it or the destruction to humans and mutants alike will be immeasurable. And in this bleak issue of X-men Supreme, that destruction has already begun.
Cambrian Explosion will deal with both the short-term and long-term consequences of what happens in this event. For that reason, it's very important that people take the time to leave a review. Feedback is very important to the health of X-men Supreme. If I'm doing something wrong, please tell me. Either post your comments directly in the issue or contact me directly. Either way is fine. Thank you all very much for helping me celebrate 50 years of X-men. Until next time, take care and best wishes. Excelsior!
