X-men Supreme Issue 146: Unanswered and Unaccounted is LIVE!
I hope everyone had themselves an awesome Christmas. I hope I can add just a little extra holiday cheer with the X-men Supreme fanfiction series. Given the current situation in this fanfiction series, as well as the situation with the X-men in the comics, that’s going to be difficult. Both are in a tenuous state at the moment, although X-men Supreme’s current state is considerably different. Nobody has been sterilized. Nobody has been time displaced. Nobody has even been cloned. For X-men, that’s a pretty novel concept these days.
Even without those tried and true X-men tactics, this fanfiction series is entering a dangerous and tenuous time. Ever since the end of X-men Supreme Volume 1: Mutant Revolution, the human/mutant conflict had clear and visible lines. It was in the very name of Volume 1. It began a mutant revolution, led by Magneto and upended by Charles Xavier and his X-men before it erupted into something more destructive. That revolution put Magneto, the Brotherhood of Mutants, and a sizable chunk of the mutant race on the island of Genosha.
That island became the unofficial capital for mutants. It became their homeland, a sanctuary to which mutants could turn. That sanctuary became more and more necessary as X-men Supreme unfolded. Communities like District X were constantly under siege. Robert Kelly, once an anti-mutant crusader, was elected President of the United States. General Nathan Grimshaw, a tenuous ally with the potential to become a dangerous enemy, established the Mutant Security Agency. These are all challenges that added new complications to Charles Xavier’s dream of peace and understanding.
Now, in wake of the events of Proactive Regression, Genosha is no more. However, the mutant population that once called it home is far from gone. Decisions by Havok and the Scarlet Witch led to a massive exodus of the island, leaving the X-men and the various governments of the world in a state of grave uncertainty. Charles Xavier doesn’t need telepathy to know that uncertainty breeds fear and fear tends to undermine peace. His X-men know that too. It means that there are some difficult decisions on the horizon for the X-men.
These decisions will reshape and upend the X-men Supreme fanfiction series in ways it has never endured. It’s one thing to fight Magneto and his Brotherhood in an extinction plot. It’s another to fight an entity like the Cambrian. It’s another to fight aliens like the Shi’ar tyrant, D’ken. However, the battle before them has no clear battle lines. It has no clear enemies anymore. The conflict the X-men face is now scattered, hidden, and uniquely dangerous. It puts Charles Xavier in a very difficult position.
That position is about to get an even greater complication as X-men Supreme Volume 6: Liberation Decimation enters its home stretch. I can finally announce that this current stage of the X-men Supreme fanfiction series is about to end. Like the end of other volumes before it, the end of X-men Supreme Volume 6: Liberation Decimation will bring with it immense upheavals. The X-men will be shaken. Charles Xavier’s dream will gain more complications. The very role of the X-men will change in ways that not everyone will be on board with. What does this mean for the X-men and X-men Supreme? This powerful issue of X-men Supreme Volume 6: Liberation Decimation will offer a hints of things to come.
