[personal profile] long_silence posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Four pages from New Mutants #23. CBR is doing this X-Communicated thing where they go over practically everything that happens in each chapter with commentary from Mike Carey. They scanned practically all of the pages I wanted to post so I decided to save myself the effort and used their images.

So when we left off Magneto had called off the Moonstar Cadre (the AoX New Mutants) from their pursuit of Legacy. He then proceeded to drop a few tons of metal on to both Legacy as well as Gambit who had been helping her escape.

This course of action isn't sitting well with the rest of the residents of Fortress X. Even the Force Warriors seem to have lost faith in Magneto.

In spite of all of this it's revealed that Magneto didn't actually kill Legacy and Gambit, instead he hid them because he's had his own questions about what's going on.

It's revealed that Magneto was the one who sent Pryde on her mission outside the walls, ordering her to take those pictures on that camera.

Magneto has saved these two to send them on a mission. There's a room at the centre of the Fortress, a room even Magneto has never been in, a room he didn't know existed until recently. And that's weird because Magneto built Fortress X himself. So Magneto sends Gambit and Reaper to find what is there, hoping to find more answers.

Magneto decides to distract everyone else in the Fortress from Reaper and Gambit's search by staging a breakout from the Brig for Katherine Pryde. He causes a lot of destruction and makes a lot of noise.

Magneto and Katherine then search out a comatose Charles Xavier, who Legacy found in the Brig and briefly absorbed earlier in the crossover. Xavier remembers a world that never happened, a world where there were mutant heroes.

Xavier passes out. And the Moonstar Cadre confront Magneto, they believe that he's betrayed them all.

Magneto tries to reason with them. But then the Force Warriors come in and knock out Magneto. They've taken over the Fortress.

Meanwhile Reaper and Gambit have found the secret room, and there's a scientist who seems to have been frozen in time outside of reality reaching for a computer. They find a box in the centre of the room in the centre of the Fortress. Legacy looks inside and freaks out a bit.

I believe the frozen scientist was Doctor Nemesis, thus showing what link Age of X may have to the 616 timeline.

Actually, theories so far are that Age of X is the 616 reality, just Utopia under some kind of illusion. (not sure if this is already known based on your comment, but I thought it was worth to share)

I'm expecting it to be more like a pocket reality of some kind. And the "she" that Xavier refers to may be the creator.

Aww you skipped the pages with Xavier swooning in Magneto's arms.

Goods news, everyone! By placing their own universe in a box, they've made a FUTURAMA reference!

Hopefully they won't sit on it.

There's something about this art, I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's not right.

I'm seeing lines and shadows on faces that don't seem necessary, or in odd places. Also, lulz-photoshop-cut-and-paste universe in a box.

Ok so it doesn't sound like Revenant is Jean or the Phoenix then, just shaped like her. Maybe she's the creature behind it all? Like a Beyonder or something... If the universe thing is to be taken at face value.

Oh and I suppose that if there's nothing outside the Fortress and everyone's memories have been altered that explains why that other Avengers story is being told from Rogues "memories".
