Age of X-Man.... mutant Jesus is coming, just in time for the holidays!

This looks... interesting. As I've never been a huge fan of the extended Summers-Grey clan other than Rachel, I don't know a lot about Nate Grey. Guess we're going to learn?

The good news is that it looks like a lot of characters will be getting special attention in limited series - including Nightcrawler! - the bad news is more limited series to keep track of!

I've been somewhat keeping up with it, mostly to see if any of my faves show up (ofc they didn't so far).

Also can't say that I know a whole lot about Nate other than that he exists, but he seems to take the mutant Jesus role seriously. Erasing human religions in the upcoming issue certainly is going to stir things up a bit: https://www.cbr.com/uncanny-x-men-previ ... on-erased/

Oh, that's a terrible idea. That should be... interesting.

It kind of makes sense to give Kurt a limited series in there, considering his almost-priest phase and long standing role as the moral compass and religious member of the team.

I bet he has some opinions on erasure of Vatican City...

Did anyone else think 'Oh no, all that lovely masonry?' XD I'm sure Kurt wouldn't be the only one with opinions on that subject I hope Marvel are prepared for the backlash this sort of thing can generate ><

Speaking of backlash: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/12/16 ... y-x-men-5/

While it's obvious any of these actions will be undone by the end of the event, maybe next time Apocalypse should stick to less controversial plans, like trying to wipe out all of humanity, in order to avoid offense. ;)
