Marvel finally enters X-Men sex, babies, and family life


The first law of the X-Men’s current sanctuary island, Cracoa, is to “make more mutants.” But most of the time, Marvel’s X-Men comics focus on a small team of mutants who are using their power to revive all dead mutants. But what about the rest of Krakoa’s mutants?

Perhaps they have to obey the law in the old-fashioned way by getting pregnant and giving birth to a baby. But it raises many other questions. In particular, the ethics of forced reproduction and the unreasonable burden it imposes on birth mutants. And with no babies in every X-Men book, it doesn’t seem like a rule that many of the most famous or powerful mutants think very much.

This may seem like a little bit, but have you ever met a manga fan? The mysteries of Krakoan’s sexy days, pregnancy, childbirth and childcare remained unexplored until this week’s issue. X method # 3 introduced readers to Bauer, a sexy Krakoan playground for mutant couples to wear it with or without contraception.

What else is happening on our favorite manga page? I will tell you. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of books that comic editors enjoyed last week. This is part of the Superhero Life Society page, reading recommendations, and “Look at this cool art.” There may be spoilers. There may not be enough context. But there are great cartoons. (And if you missed the last edition, read this.)

It’s a nursery in many more ways (get it?’Because of the flowers). Mutant babies continue to be unloaded, but fortunately Bauer has many visitors to make sure they are being taken care of.If this seems to be the obvious and nasty consequence of ordering the population to breed without setting up the actual infrastructure for giving birth and raising children, it is a kind of social nightmare. X method Made for exploration.

The old western version of Spawn, Gunslinger, takes out a tall hat with a skull around the brim and wears it all cool, like Spawn's Unvierse # 1 (2021).

Rocket Raccoon continues a small ironic ploy about how to simply compare things in space with things on Earth.

You see, I like how PO-ed Rocket Raccoon understands Earth’s superheroes and their lasting desire to bring things back to Earth’s terminology.

In the first issue, Infinite frontier It delves into an interesting aspect of DC’s recent space restart. Traditionally, most DC restarts are done in such a way that almost no one remembers what happened, in order to maintain at least a minimal sense of the “next universe” to the setting. But this time, I remember that many ordinary people saw evidence of the Multiverse — and it causes a little familiar social conflict.

Speaking of the Multiverse, the conclusion of the Heroes Reborn event at Marvel’s Avengers umbrella leaves us with this fun bullying: 616 alternative universe Mephisto from around the Multiverse teaming up to cause havoc. I will.Even if they are very similar Spider-Ham Space Mephisto..

This week Fantastic Four: Life StoryRetelling all of Fantastic Four’s continuity, as if it had happened in the actual history that happened while it was published, Invisible Woman got her copy. Feminine mysteries Signed by Betty Friedan, and I think it’s neat. Friedan’s original feminist texts have been criticized for ignoring the struggle of poor women, queer women, and women of color-but of course, the white middle class with stunted ambitions. Focusing on the liberation of housewives would have enlivened Sustorm in the 1960s.
