X-men Supreme Issue #143: Proactive Regression Part 1
As the conflicts get harder, the X-men must get stronger. The recent X-men comics don’t seem to agree with that idea. For whatever reason, Marvel has decided that as the conflicts get harder for the X-men, they must get weaker. This has led to Charles Xavier, Wolverine, Cyclops, and Jean Grey getting killed off. It has led to the X-men getting exiled from their world, forcing them to the most remote and hostile parts of the Marvel universe. It hardly seems like progress for the X-men. I hope to make more progress in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series.
Make no mistake. The conflicts will get more dire for the X-men in this fanfiction series, but don’t expect their strategy to revolve around moving the Xavier Institute to a demon realm or resorting to time travel to fix their problems. X-men Supreme has the X-men in a different position. They’re actually stronger now than they’ve ever been. After the Outer Limits arc that took them into a cosmic clash with the Shi’ar, they returned to Earth united and intact. Charles Xavier even came back healthier, his various ailments having been healed by Shi’ar medical technology. He can now walk, run, and stand by his X-men.
The X-men may end up needing the world’s most powerful telepath because in the six weeks they were absent, a new round of conflicts emerged. In many respects, the catalyst for these conflicts came at the beginning of the Outer Limits arc when the X-men were transported into deep space by the Phoenix Force. This incident destroyed a Warlock factory on Genosha and left Wanda Maximoff injured. Naturally, the Brotherhood, especially Quicksilver and Havok, became more militant. This has created a standoff between Genosha, President Kelly, and General Grimshaw. The danger of such a standoff is difficult to understate.
In addition to renewed tensions on Genosha, the Mutant Liberation Front has made a comeback. After Toad’s defeat at the hands of the X-men in the Natural Disorder arc, a new leader has emerged in Stryfe. He looks to finish what Toad started, but he intends to do it his way. With help from other former members and a few new allies, he’s preparing an attack that will shatter the foundations of the X-men Supreme fanfiction series in a major way. What he tried during the Inauguration Day arc was just a preview. This will be much worse.
All these conflicts are set to converge in a major way. It’ll set the stage for another major shakeup in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series. Charles Xavier, now healthy and strong, will have to re-evaluate his dream and how to pursue it with his X-men. What happens with him and his team will set the stage for some fresh upheaval in X-men Supreme, but that upheaval won’t involve sterilization or time travel so I think it’s still an upgrade over the X-men comics. It starts here with a new arc and a new conflict.
Logan trailer helped alleviate some of it. I want to alleviate it even more with the X-men Supreme fanfiction series. This is a world of X-men that is not bound to the same grim circumstances that we see in the comics. Clones, time travelers, and sterility plagues are not an issue here. I want X-men Supreme to just explore X-men in their most awesome form. To ensure I maintain such a form, it’s very important that I get feedback for this and every other issue of this fanfiction series. So please take the time to review by contacting me directly or by posting them directly in the issue. Either way is fine and I’m always happy to chat. Until next time, take care and best wishes.
