X-men Supreme Issue #109: Civilization No Longer Lost Part 4
There are moments in every major X-men story that act as turning points of sorts. These moments, such as the death of Jean Grey in the Phoenix Saga or the death of the Morlocks in the Morlock Massacre, change the fundamental nature of how the X-men operate and how they go about their mission. Their goals don't change. Their desire to be heroes and protect a world that hates and fears them don't change either. However, a major aspect of how they conduct themselves does change. It's not always obvious at first, but it leads to some very big moments down the line. The final issue of the Civilization No Longer Lost arc in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series will lead to just such a moment.
Part of my desire to keep X-men Supreme engaging and interesting involve putting the X-men in a position where they have to make hard choices that affect how they function as a team. A lot of those choices have involved difficult moments amongst allies and potential enemies. I look at moments like Charles Xavier convincing the Scarlet Witch to end the Genosha uprising or Wolverine choosing to go after the Yashida Clan as moments in X-men Supreme that act as turning points for stories and characters alike. The impact of those decisions doesn't hit all at once. The aftermath often acts as a foundation of sorts from which I continue to build this fanfiction series. What happens in these events turns into other, more powerful moments that further reshape the course of X-men Supreme. For that reason, the moment in this final issue of Civilization No Longer Lost is a moment from which many changes will stem.
It's not just about the conflicts that the X-men face within this arc. There's no question that Selene and Sinister are daunting foes. And in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series, their romantic entanglement along with their alliance with Vulcan and the Goblin Queen make them even more menacing. It's not just about Nova Roma and the mystical sub-plot that has been unfolding along with the plot surrounding Sinister and Selene. What will make this arc such a major turning point is what the X-men will have to do in order to end this conflict. The implications will not be obvious. But as the events of X-men Supreme Volume 5: Dark Truths unfold, the biggest moments in this fanfiction series will be traced to the decision made in this arc. So for those seeking a defining moment in X-men Supreme, this issue and this arc is one you won't want to miss.
