what is upper it’s mightiest subscribers
00:02
it’s Ernie blur without fear welcome
00:05
back to the channel today’s video we can
00:07
do some a little different we’re in
00:08
trice a little different I’ve decided
00:10
for a very good reason I’m no longer
00:11
gonna cover comics on this channel that
00:13
I don’t enjoy it makes for a less an
00:16
interesting video for the people who are
00:18
watching not to mention as a person who
00:20
is a creative himself and someone who
00:22
does actually have aspirations of being
00:24
in the comics industry I don’t really
00:26
like trashing other creators I don’t
00:29
like saying negative things about other
00:32
writers other artists in this business
00:34
because honestly that kind of stuff will
00:37
come back to bite you and it’s great for
00:39
people who aren’t in the industry but I
00:41
don’t think people who are in the
00:43
industry or want to be in the industry
00:45
should burn more bridges than they have
00:48
to even though I’m a person who believes
00:50
in the same made the bridges I burn like
00:52
the way I don’t want to burn that one
00:53
that’s it we are only gonna be covering
00:56
the X books I’m actively reading and the
00:58
ones I care about if something
01:00
interesting comes up from another comic
01:02
another X comic and I’m not covering and
01:04
those are namely gonna be Excalibur and
01:05
New Mutants and maybe other ones to come
01:08
I’ll bring it up but I’m not gonna do or
01:11
waste time doing full breakdowns of
01:13
comics I just don’t care about so we’re
01:15
gonna be talking about x-men number six
01:17
by Jonathan Hickman and Matteo the Fogg
01:21
knee we are finally going to address a
01:24
couple of questions that were posed
01:25
during house of X and powers of 10
01:28
specifically about how long it’s gonna
01:31
take before mystique finally realizes
01:34
she’s not gonna get what she wants and
01:36
more importantly what dr. Greger is
01:39
doing on the Orcas forge and how it
01:42
actually goes against everything Charles
01:45
Xavier and Magneto thought they knew
01:47
about orcas and the future of mutant
01:50
kind we’re gonna talk about all that and
01:52
more right now
01:53
but first let’s hit that intro for the
01:56
Y’s wrath
01:57
rina when his brother lies gaping chief
01:59
any songs they prefer to lies that’s any
02:02
beautiful a trip then have purple lies
02:04
you can’t see me you Steve be wondering
02:06
how about preach smart ever loses that
02:08
will be before we get started if you
02:11
want to see more awesome comic book
02:12
videos like this ring it only takes two
02:14
clicks to become one of Earth’s
02:15
Mightiest subscribers click quick this
02:20
issue of x-men really really does a good
02:24
job of bringing everything from house of
02:27
X and powers of ten together yes it
02:29
doesn’t a fantastic job because these
02:31
are questions that we originally asked
02:33
these are questions we originally had
02:35
during house of X and powers of 10 where
02:37
we were wondering like dude what is up
02:39
with mystique why wouldn’t mystique do
02:41
some of the things that she’s done like
02:43
case in point the Orcas Forge why was it
02:46
that mystique just seemed lost on the
02:48
Orcas war she seemed very
02:50
uncharacteristically Annette in that
02:52
situation and now we know exactly why
02:55
because this comic actually takes us
02:57
back to a scene from powers of 10 number
03:00
one where mystique is meeting with
03:02
magneto and Charles about another favor
03:05
that they need from her how she went
03:08
into damage control and got the
03:10
information they needed about the Orcas
03:12
fort well now they needed more and of
03:14
course that is for her to go on the
03:16
clandestine mission with Cyclops and
03:17
company to take out the mother mold that
03:20
they had in the Orcas Forge but actually
03:22
went deeper than that
03:23
now remember Cyclops said something very
03:25
specific to his team about not bringing
03:27
crackling flowers on that mission and
03:30
more importantly even kind of
03:32
specifically looked at mystique when he
03:34
said it that said I remember going back
03:37
to that video I specifically pointed out
03:38
that I believe she brought a flower with
03:41
her now we have confirmation that was in
03:44
fact the case and she didn’t do it for
03:47
her own personal ends she did it at the
03:50
order of magneto in Charles Xavier
03:52
this also kind of explains why she
03:55
seemed to have been kind of putzing
03:56
around on the Orcas force it wasn’t
03:58
because
03:59
she got lost she actually took the time
04:01
to go into the greenhouse of the Orcas
04:05
forge and plant the flower that they
04:08
needed they needed to create a gateway
04:10
on the Orcas forge so that if in the
04:12
future they needed to return there for
04:15
whatever reason they could do so but the
04:17
problem is when mystique planted the
04:19
flower on the Orcas porch which she did
04:21
successfully do the trouble lies in the
04:24
fact that because of the resurrection
04:26
protocols and then being so far beyond
04:28
cerebro’s reach Mystique’s memories and
04:31
everything that she knows can only go so
04:33
far she has no memory of actually
04:35
planting the flower in Charles a Magneto
04:37
they’re pretty sure because mystique is
04:39
capable she is more than capable she’s
04:42
proven this throughout the years they
04:44
assume she very likely did it but they
04:46
need to know for sure so they send her
04:49
back through the Kerr culling gateway
04:51
now the thing you’re probably asking is
04:52
well what if she didn’t plant the flower
04:54
will she just fall into space will she
04:56
just die in nothingness is there a trap
04:58
waiting for well the good news is if the
05:00
flower is destroyed then she’ll just
05:03
walk through the gate no different than
05:04
Franklin Richards did in x-men Fantastic
05:07
Four number one even though it’ll be for
05:08
completely different reasons however she
05:11
can also be walking into a trap
05:13
but as it turns out when she goes
05:14
through the gate we learned that yet the
05:17
jig worked the flower has been left
05:19
unbothered now this whole thing begs all
05:21
a lot of questions because I mean the
05:23
main thing for me is that typically the
05:24
four Cohen gateways they usually tend to
05:27
be pretty grandiose you think orcas
05:28
would notice a flower gateway on their
05:30
ship but apparently this was one of
05:32
those stealth flowers so yeah we don’t
05:35
really see the Gateway on the other side
05:36
but we do see the mystique turns herself
05:38
into one of the Orcas techs and when she
05:42
goes through she actually stumbles in
05:44
also very interesting information you
05:46
see because at this particular point in
05:47
time
05:48
director Devo he has put together
05:50
something very special that Gregor needs
05:53
to finish her little pet project and now
05:55
we see this earlier in the book before
05:57
we know this is actually mystique but we
06:00
later on find out yes this is in fact
06:01
mystique who Omega Sentinel hands
06:04
voiceover – that’s supposed to go to dr.
06:07
Greger and we also know for a fact that
06:09
mystique actually does give Gregor the
06:12
device that she was handed thing that we
06:14
find very troubling about this is that
06:15
apparently when mystique walks in on
06:18
Gregor working in her lab what she’s
06:20
working on is a whole last Nimrod and
06:24
this just isn’t me pontificating or
06:27
hypothesizing this this is something
06:28
mystique says herself to Charles a yes
06:31
in fact they were wrong the key to the
06:33
creation of Nimrod was not tied to
06:35
mother mold
06:36
apparently something has happened
06:37
something has changed now either a it
06:40
was true that Nimrod would be created by
06:42
mother mold or be Charles got it wrong
06:45
or C maybe both were right because we
06:48
know in situations like these Tom always
06:50
wants to happen thing is heartbreaking
06:52
here and this is something we learn from
06:53
house of X I believe this came up in
06:55
house of X number six we kind of always
06:58
known that destiny the one thing on
07:01
earth a mystique wanted more than
07:03
anything else is her white back destiny
07:05
the mutant who could see the future the
07:08
same one who killed Maura and kind of
07:10
set Maura straight on what all is going
07:12
on with her life and how she
07:14
reincarnates Charles magneto and Maura
07:18
they all know that if they have someone
07:20
a mutant who can see the future on the
07:22
island someone’s gonna figure out what
07:25
they’re up to and maybe be able to find
07:27
out if everything is not gonna work out
07:29
in the end at all and that’s just
07:30
something that would go against the
07:32
dream it would actually make it harder
07:34
for them to achieve their dream and keep
07:36
all of this going if some mutant who can
07:38
see the future could just look forward
07:40
and say hey this isn’t gonna work out in
07:42
the end which honestly kind of seems
07:44
like maybe you would want that but since
07:46
this is technically Maura’s potentially
07:49
last life this is one of those
07:51
situations where they don’t want to take
07:52
that leap of faith and that’s what
07:54
mystique wants she wants destiny back
07:56
and we now know that apparently destiny
08:00
warned mystique about this we book in
08:03
this issue with destiny sitting mystique
08:06
down and
08:07
pairing her for the future so this
08:10
entire time mystique nuka-cola was
08:12
coming she knew that Charles Xavier
08:14
magneto were going to create this mythic
08:17
mutant Island and everything was gonna
08:19
seem like a paradise but deep down she
08:21
knew because of destiny that it was all
08:24
a lie and that they were going to deny
08:27
her getting the one thing that she wants
08:29
back and mystique right now has been
08:32
biding her time because des is Wonder
08:34
all this is gonna happen and right now
08:37
she is simply sitting back and waiting
08:40
for her moment to strike because she has
08:42
now been told pretty much in no
08:44
uncertain terms that they are not going
08:46
to give her what she wants but because
08:48
every time she jumps through a hoop
08:50
Charles and Magneto
08:52
they change the stakes the second
08:54
mystique starts keeping pace they change
08:56
up the tempo they’re constantly moving
08:58
the goalposts so no matter what she does
09:00
she’s starting to realize they’re not
09:02
gonna give her what she wants and
09:04
destiny has already told her if they
09:06
refuse to give her what she wants to
09:08
remember these words bring me back and
09:12
she is told her that if they will not
09:14
let her if she is not allowed to then
09:17
burn krakoa to the ground now here is
09:21
sometimes he’s very important about this
09:23
and thinking you have to understand
09:23
about Destiny’s powers we do know yes
09:26
she can see the future
09:27
depending on how far into the future she
09:29
is seeing the accuracy of her
09:31
predictions tends to dwindle the further
09:33
ahead so she was able to see far enough
09:36
into the future that she was able to see
09:38
that all of this was going to happen she
09:39
knew all this was gonna be a thing she
09:41
knew they were not gonna let them bring
09:42
her back though once again she didn’t
09:44
really know everything surrounding those
09:46
situation so it does make me wonder if
09:48
there’s a little bit of inaccuracy there
09:50
but so far destiny has been spot-on
09:51
about everything it does make me wonder
09:54
what is Mystique’s next move because if
09:56
mystique is gonna burn core code to the
09:57
ground part of me has a sneaking
09:59
suspicion because we’ve all talked about
10:00
Sabretooth mm you all know mystique
10:02
Sabretooth they have history and even
10:05
though technically she was one of the
10:06
people who voted for him to be exiled
10:08
something tells me which before she
10:10
burns croco it down to cinders I think
10:14
she’s gonna unleash Sabretooth to help
10:15
her get the job done
10:17
anyway there’s a lot of stuff to unpack
10:19
in this issue and that’s really the only
10:20
thing I’m focusing on right now but let
10:22
me know what you think about x-men
10:23
number six by Jonathan Hickman and
10:24
Matteo behind me and do you think
10:27
mystique is gonna pull a Seth Rollins
10:29
and burn it down sound off in the
10:31
