    Default Karasu and Sojobo: Phoenixii of Death

    After Hope killed the original Jean Grey when she uncreated the WHR along with everything Phoenix, did a powerful new cosmic bird enter the scene?



    When the Messiah took Phoenix to the meat-grinder and made mutant sausage, she did a pretty bad job. Look at Eye Boy- to extend the metaphor, he would be made up mostly from bits of Jean's intergalactic spleen. When we first saw Hope's abominations, it was pretty dismal. But was there more to the story?



    Look at the soulless husk looking thing in the foreground of this picture. Chisel the glaze from your eyes with something sharp, then look deeper. Birds. Black and White birds- and they just ate that mutant's inner-self. It's clearly the first known appearance of Karasu and Sojobo. Immediately after the cinders of the Phoenix died, out two ash-themed powerhouses arose, massive psionic Raven gestalt in tow. It seems that after hatching, they quickly made their way across Asia for their first meal.

    Surely the Phoenix had better things to do than charge across the galaxy just to make Shark Girl. That's can't have been it's goal. If it's role in the cosmic scheme was vital and the universe abhors a vacuum, perhaps this Deathly Raven has risen to set things right. Remember that Kun lun/phoenix stuff from AVX? Not really right, but there was probably a yin/yang symbol in there somewhere. The Ogun Twins are all about that stuff. Was Sojobo's "death" necessary as part of their continued Yin Yang gimmick? Through the twins the Raven feeds off the Phoenix phailures, but to what end? Who will mourn for Eva Bell?

    Ah, yes... Yet another troll thread riding on Jean Grey's back! Keep 'em coming people! Keep 'em coming -- the more neo-followers the better

    This is about protecting Jean's legacy as much as anything, ZNOP. If Jean was in charge of cranking out new mutants she'd have just given them the power of Home Economics instead of a cosmic insult like Jia.

    My only complaint is that I can't vote for all three poll options. Otherwise, good thread with an interesting premise. You're onto something.

    I felt bad voting against Gillen myself but that's what he gets for dumping Hope from the end of his UXM.

    Atomiq I like the way you think.

    Kieron Gillen. Because justice.

    Jia Jing being an abomination created from pieces of various other mutants makes everything sensible.
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    I like X-Men Legacy just fine, but if any of the current stock of characters are still relevant in a year's time, I'll eat my hat. Legion included.

    The Phoenix wasn't destroyed, it was dispersed across the planet. It has been fragmented before, It will eventually pull Itself back together. And the new crop of mutants is totally lackluster--did evolution really need the likes of Eye-Boy and Mudbug?
    Thus do I write the first chapter of my new scripture. And the first verse is "Let it all burn."

    If anything, they were meant to be Morlocks.

    He probably wasn't allowed to use her.

    Pretty much this. You can't destroy the force of life and evolution.

    Why does everyone keeps saying the phoenix is dead? Did marvel say something? Seems pretty damn stupid.

    I think Tom Brevoort said it was, although he isn't the best with continuity.

    Brevoort's so bad with continuity he probably thinks the Phoenix is what destroyed Superman's home planet, and that Crossbones killed Batman's parents.

    We need to get Bendis on those stories right away!
