X-men Supreme Issue 131: Double Threat is LIVE and (Overdue) Pic Update!
There’s a major conflict brewing in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series and it’s about to get even more volatile. While the X-men have faced their share of conflicts throughout this fanfiction series, they’ve never faced anything like the Mutant Liberation Front. They are not like Magneto and his Brotherhood of Mutants. They are not the kind of team that will overthrow a government on an island, direct a killer asteroid towards Earth, or crash a Dazzler concert. The Mutant Liberation Front isn’t as interested in destruction as it is in ensuring their dominance.
The X-men aren’t the only ones standing in the Mutant Liberation’s path to dominance. They’ve made plenty of enemies all over the world, including President Kelly’s constantly-changing inner circle and an increasingly beleaguered General Nathan Grimshaw. They all suffered a crippling defeat in X-men Supreme Issue 127: Terror Sell. The nations of the world, including the Mutant Security Agency, are still recovering from the damage wrought by the Legacy Virus in Dark Legacy. But it’s only a matter of time before the X-men and their allies regroup.
Toad and the Mutant Liberation Front know this. Yes, Toad is still leading this team and he’s leading it well. He’s been a very different character since his transformation after the Cambrian arc. He’s already inspired fierce loyalty among his team, as well as other mutants. But he understands that if he’s going to subdue the X-men, the Mutant Security Agency, and everyone in between, he has to make his move. That’s the next big clash in this fanfiction series.
In order for the Mutant Liberation Front to deliver the finishing blow, they need the willing or unwilling assistance of Madison Jefferies. That’s a name that some particularly hardcore X-men fans should recognize. As a character, he’s a fairly recent creation in the grand scheme of the X-men mythos. He’s also another one of those X-men characters that hasn’t really been fleshed out in the X-men comics. I intend to change that in X-men Supreme.
It all starts with Madison Jefferies. His introduction to this fanfiction series will have some major implications for the coming conflict, as well as conflicts in the future. The X-men are already under pressure to stop the declining state of mutant affairs. They scored a badly needed victory in the Impossible Odds arc, but they need a victory on a much larger scale this time. And they’ll have to achieve it without Professor Charles Xavier. Are they up to the task? We begin to find out today.
pics section section. I know I've been negating it. The holidays, as well as various side-projects, have kept me from doing so. I'd like to get back on track. And for all you artists out there, please remember that I'm always open for submissions and comissions. Please contact me if you're interested.
Rogue’s pending return, there are a lot of shifting tides within X-men Supreme. Constant change is a big part of what makes the X-men mythos so strong, but this can be overdone it at times. I want to avoid that, which is why it’s so important that X-men fans of all types continue to send me feedback. Either post it directly in the issue or contact me directly. I’m always happy to chat X-men, whether it’s this fanfiction series or some other X-men related topic. So either way is fine. Until next time, take care and best wishes. Excelsior!
