i just want to say real quick for the
00:17

00:20

00:41
lionel francis you
00:42
and in this video we're gonna discuss
00:44
exactly
00:45
what the brood king egg really
00:48
is and the role that brew will play in
00:52
this
00:52
going forward we're gonna talk about all
00:54
that and more
00:55
right now but first let's hit that intro
00:59
word of wise grass only greener when
01:01
it's fertilized gave them truth in these
01:03

[Music]
01:14
if you want to see more awesome comic
01:15
book videos like this one it only takes
01:17
two clicks to become one of earth's
01:19
mightiest subscribers
01:21
click click in this book we've learned
01:24
that since the brood have returned we
01:27
know the reason why they're clashing
01:29
with each other
01:30
in this war to take control of the king
01:33
egg and that reason is the cree you see
01:36
even though the cree
01:37
are currently facing their own
01:39
extinction currently but are also
01:41
kind of going through a resurgence now
01:42
in lieu of everything going on
01:44
with empire right now but in the past
01:47
we learned that supreme or the kree
01:50
supreme intelligence foresaw all of this
01:54
that they would not be around
01:55
to see the fruits of this labor but
01:58
decree
01:59
are the ones who created the king egg
02:02
as a way to take control of what they
02:05
saw
02:06
as a weaponized asset and use it against
02:09
other societies you know
02:11
when the need arose this isn't too
02:13
dissimilar if you're familiar with
02:14
movies like the aliens
02:16
franchise you know you think about the
02:18
company waylon yutani
02:20
that's kind of their whole mo was taking
02:22
the xenomorphs
02:23
and turning them into weapons and that's
02:25
exactly what the cree
02:26
are doing here they were trying to use
02:29
the brood as a weapon against their
02:31
enemies
02:32
matter of fact the brood weren't even
02:34
the first ones they actually tried to
02:36
use this on
02:36
they tried to use this on the talabari
02:39
the sidri who we just recently saw
02:41
in a giant size x-men nightcrawler
02:44
they just recently kind of made a return
02:46
all of a sudden the scatter the phalanx
02:49
the brood was really the first one they
02:50
got any actual success with
02:52
and they planned to use this against all
02:54
of their rivals the skrulls the badoon
02:56
the shiar galador which i know this is
02:59
not the first time galador
03:01
has been brought up since uh you know
03:03
all this has been going on
03:04
galadore was actually brought up during
03:06
cable number one now i didn't talk about
03:08
it in the video because
03:09
well one i'm not the biggest fan of rom
03:12
the space night it was
03:14
never really a thing for me um it was
03:15
one of those situations where i think by
03:17
the time
03:18
that you know i was coming up in rom the
03:20
space night was a thing
03:21
i was already aware of in my humble
03:24
opinion
03:25
better space nights than rom
03:28
uh in the form of the space sheriff
03:31
series which you know like
03:32
gavin scheider spielbaugh
03:35
b fighter cabato you know the shows that
03:37
gave you the vr troopers
03:39
and the big bad beetle borgs
03:41
respectively
03:42
not to mention huge kamen rider fan you
03:43
can kind of see right here i've seen
03:45
better space
03:46
nights than rom sorry so galador just
03:49
really didn't stick out to me as
03:50
anything important but now that i
03:52
you know did a little research a little
03:53
reading i'm now aware of who he is
03:55
and that said this is just another way
03:57
to kind of remind us that this is all
03:59
connected
04:00
we also learned that the accuser who we
04:03
met in the previous issue of x-men
04:04
he was around when the king egg was
04:06
brought into being
04:08
now because of all the things that have
04:10
happened between now and then that the
04:11
cree had fallen on hard times
04:13
that kind of makes sense as to why the
04:15
she are had the king egg in their
04:17
possession
04:18
in new mutants number one and with the
04:19
mutants having it it's kickstarted this
04:21
whole
04:22
damn brewed swarm but in light of all
04:25
that we do learn the cyclops havoc
04:27
vulcan
04:28
marvel girl and company they were all
04:29
able to successfully
04:31
lead the brood away from earth at least
04:34
we assume there are hundreds of
04:37
thousands of millions
04:38
of brood bearing down on them right now
04:42
and they have followed them all the way
04:43
to the station where the accuser
04:45
and corsair and the rest of the star
04:47
jammers are hiding out
04:49
to make matters worse gladiator and his
04:51
son and
04:52
the rest of the the shia imperial guard
04:55
have also pulled
04:56
up so it's just really interesting
04:57
almost like if you ever familiar with
04:59
movies like uh snatch
05:00
or lock stock and two smoking barrels
05:02
it's one of those situations where it's
05:03
like oh wow we got these people
05:05
who are coming from completely different
05:06
sides of things all
05:08
converging on one point and hilarity
05:11
naturally will ensue with the accuser
05:14
and gladiator who at this particular
05:16
point has
05:16
full permission from his son to run that
05:19
fade on this creed dog and i mean
05:23
spacing this guy in the process this all
05:26
leads to cyclops and company
05:28
leading one of these giant cosmic space
05:31
whale things the brood use to pilot
05:34
their way through space
05:35
and crashing into it and sending
05:37
everything down to the planet below
05:39
which supposedly this planet
05:41
seemingly has no life now one of the
05:43
things i found really
05:44
interesting in this is that when the
05:46
that when all parties converge into this
05:48
nearby cavern
05:49
on the planet where they've crash
05:50
crash-landed we get this really
05:52
interesting conversation between cyclops
05:54
and gene about the state of the brood
05:56
and
05:56
why they're doing what they're doing
05:58
because scott wants her to read their
05:59
mind see if she can probe in there
06:01
maybe exert some form of control and
06:03
marvel girl reveals that their thoughts
06:05
are too manic and mad to try and control
06:08
to imagine the sheer amount of control
06:10
that the queens of the brood
06:13
have over the rest of the hive the fact
06:16
that the queens pretty much
06:17
do whatever they want whenever they want
06:20
they eat whatever they want whenever
06:21
they want
06:22
they kill whatever they want whenever
06:24
they want and to further iterate this
06:26
the fact that she has
06:28
millions millions
06:32
willing to die just so she can have in
06:35
excess
06:36
of everything she already has everything
06:38
that she you
06:39
could ever want that she doesn't even
06:41
really truly need and then try imagining
06:43
what it feels like when something comes
06:45
along
06:46
that threatens that i don't know man
06:48
that's a lot of really powerful
06:49
commentary
06:50
uh about the state of things when you
06:52
think about the one percent
06:53
uh in this country you know they have
06:55
more money people who have
06:57
billions and billions of dollars
06:58
literally have more money than they
07:00
could ever
07:00
hope to want to attain they have more
07:03
money than they would even know what to
07:04
do with
07:05
they have so much money in fact that
07:07
they never would ever be able to spend
07:09
all of it
07:09
and yet somehow whenever someone comes
07:12
walking along
07:13
saying oh hey we want to tax you you
07:16
on every extra millionth dollar you make
07:18
after this certain number of millions
07:21
suddenly they start screaming and crying
07:23
out in pain as though they've been
07:24
you know struck down by lightning by
07:26
thor the god of thunder himself
07:28
i think that's a very interesting
07:29
commentary that hickman is making there
07:31
i mean i'm kind of drawing it myself but
07:33
i mean
07:33
knowing the type of writer that hickman
07:35
is and his thought processes about this
07:38
it's not really that much of a reach but
07:40
that's not the most
07:41
important part of all this because the
07:43
problem is it's the king
07:44
egg the king egg is the reason all this
07:46
is happening you see originally
07:48
i thought that they wanted the queens
07:51
wanted to hatch this egg because it
07:53
would just increase their power
07:55
that is not actually the case what they
07:58
wanted to do
07:59
was eat it you see whoever can get a
08:01
hold of the king egg will hold
08:03
absolute power over the hive that's why
08:06
all the queens
08:06
are freaking out and doing everything
08:08
they can to kill whatever gets in their
08:10
way so they can get
08:11
to the king egg and as the x-men and the
08:14
star jammers
08:15
and the shia imperial guard are
08:17
literally fighting for their life
08:18
the brood suddenly stop they stop
08:21
attacking
08:22
they stop swarming they just sit and
08:24
wait
08:25
because now a new king
08:29
has stepped forward to control the brew
08:31
you see the brood
08:32
are a matriarchal society there were
08:36
no kings the most you had was an empress
08:39
and an
08:40
empress would bear the firstborn of the
08:43
brood
08:44
and then those would spawn off more
08:46
brood now
08:47
that's where things change because the
08:49
empress
08:50
was destroyed and when she was destroyed
08:53
her firstborn died with her
08:55
and this is what leads to that hierarchy
08:57
falling down to the queens the queens
08:59
right now
09:00
are the only law in brood society
09:03
with dwarf queens under them and then
09:05
drones
09:06
after them but if someone were to say i
09:09
don't know
09:10
eat the king egg i don't know
09:13
maybe someone by the name of i don't
09:16
know
09:16
brew he would possess the power
09:20
of the empress what's inside the king
09:22
egg is
09:23
synthetic pheromones the same pheromones
09:26
the cree use
09:27
to control the brood or at least back
09:29
when they tried
09:30
brew will basically be lord of the brood
09:34
and they will do
09:35
whatever he says for the next five
09:38
to ten cree cycles now i would be remiss
09:42
if i didn't at least mention that all of
09:45
this
09:45
can be undone and disrupted should
09:47
another king
09:48
egg be produced but who
09:51
in all of the known universe would want
09:54
to do that
09:56
that motherfucker did but the problem
09:58
being with that theory is that
09:59
if he could make a new king egg he
10:01
probably just would have done it anyway
10:03
instead of having the star jammer steal
10:04
one but who's to say that maybe he just
10:06
felt that that was the easier path
10:08
but either way something tells me a new
10:10
king egg is going to get introduced
10:12
at some point but i'm even more curious
10:14
now as to what's going to happen with
10:16
the brood now
10:17
that brew is in control of them is brew
10:20
going to bring them back to krakow is he
10:22
going to send them somewhere else
10:23
are you the musical gonna you know
10:26
repurpose the brood in much the same way
10:28
that that supremor
10:29
was going to use them back in the day i
10:32
mean you know
10:33
the x-men do need an army they are a
10:35
nation they are no longer this is
10:36
something i think people keep forgetting
10:37
yes they are
10:38
no longer heroes they are a nation and
10:40
that's kind of pardon parcels the reason
10:42
why black panther
10:43
just doesn't go do things willy-nilly
10:45
he's a king and that's always the point
10:48
of contention with his characters that
10:49
he's a king he's not supposed to go do
10:52
all the things that he's doing
10:53
but he does them anyway sometimes and
10:56
sometimes he doesn't because he knows
10:58
when to pick
10:58
and chooses battles that's what's going
11:01
on here so part of me wonders
11:02
are they going to bring the brood into
11:04
the fold and use them
11:06
in some sort of way and maybe that will
11:08
come back to bite them in the ass in the
11:09
long run because
11:10
you know you got to tell a story i don't
11:12
know but i'm very curious to see where
11:14
it goes
11:16
now before we get out of here are you
