I like how the Character List has Cameron with a spray painted “Pryde” now. Nice touch!
The Ruins of Centrum. The Great Mutant Haven. New York City. Storm and Rachel are assisting Wolverine, Angel, Colossus and Magneto. Magneto and Angel discuss how the endgame is near.
No one mentions if they found Lockheed, or if he is alive. Hopefully we find out his fate, next issue.
The Last Mutant Internment Camp. The Pryde offspring are trying to free the imprisoned mutants.
Destiny starts wailing into Christina. She sets up Avalanche to kill Christina but Kate saves her daughter and Avalanche, rightfully, dies.
Meanwhile, Cameron kills Pyro, but not until Pryo tells him about the compromise. The Brotherhood of Mutants have been able to walk freely but they have been giving up their fellow mutants. Those poor unfortunate souls, have been tortured. I wouldn’t cry over Pyro’s death but now I really wouldn’t.
Magneto arrives in the Sentinel that was in Centrum, but I thought it was only the head of a Sentinel. I imagine that, after fighting so many Sentinels – this evening – so that is easily explainable. Magneto Sentinel starts punching the troops.
I could have gone for a full page of Wolverine and Cameron’s exchange. Christina is happy to see her Uncle Erik. Would have also been good to have a reunion moment with Storm and Kate.
Wolverine checks in with Christina, who si pretty shaken with all of the death.
Cameron, proving he has his mother’s brain – notices the computer screen. He figures out that Kelly was going to fake an attack on himself but Magneto was going to turn it into a real attack. Magneto was also going to sacrifice Pryde’s Pride.
There is an ad for Secret Wars 2015 7, and at this point, I only still own the first issue. Which is one better than I thought, I would.
Kate is upset, as she naturally signed on for the death of her children. Magneto, to shut her down, steals Destiny’s collar dampener and places it around Kate’s throat. There is also a great moment when Magneto shuts down Wolverine. Which he should just always be doing.
Magneto comes at Christina, like a predator. She has to die for the cause, which is pretty messed up – as he points out that he raised her for this purpose. Also twisted is that Rachel was down with the plan.
Kate tells her son to give chase. Cameron kills both Pyro and Magneto in this issue, that’s quite the kill list.
Christina and Cameron start having an intellectual conversation, but it leads to fisticuffs. Cameron wants the mutant race to end, as clearly nature is trying to undo this evolutionary hiccup. Issue ends with Christina, ready to attack her brother.
I can’t wait to find out how this concludes, if the next issue is even the final issue.
