    Someone else should analyze this. It gave me a headache after Byrne-Reading it completely.

    Fantomex is one of the worst and X-tremely problematic character creations ever. Hate him. (Ditto his "The World".)

    What was even the flamin' point since we don't know how he is alive after Xavier got Krakloned after getting Fanty's body destroyed that he co-opted sans any evidence Fanty's mind survived - does that mean he is a Krakloned? Was there even a recognizable connection to being in the Weapon X mix? Where's EVA?

    C'mon, OG Hellfire Club 10 years after OG Howling Commandos? Sliding timescale much?

By any stretch (sliding timescales or not), there's just no conceivable way. Even by the original stories, "OG" Hellfire was a brand new creation just before the X-Men fought them. Shaw had just killed his way to the top shortly before the whole Dark Phoenix mess.

Fantomex is not old enough to have done any of this. He's a somewhat recent creation.

Not sure why Fantomex had a Flemish/Dutch/Belgian accent. He usually speaks with a heavy French accent.

    Is AIM allowed on Krakoa? Storm's dying now? Do you want so many more unanswered Fanty questions and added clone character consternation? What the hell kind of NO ENDING was that?!

We've known about Storm being ill for a while now.

Maybe AIM has mutant members? Generally, being a mutant is the only requirement to be on Krakoa. Plus, they've given guest passes to flatscans.

The Howling Commandos scene really throws the rest of the issue off. What a missed opportunity too, since Hickman could have created new characters in a SHIELD team instead that could have fit into the timeline much batter.

I guess Fantomex aged to adulthood in 10 years, but they don't say how.

Not too keen on Weapon 10 being Fantomex's twin, but why not, I guess.
