Despite three chapters in X-Men X of Swords as the all hands on deck event hurls towards a conclusion, the biggest X-Men news this week likely came in the pages of Fantastic Four, over the course of only a few panels featuring Franklin Richards and Professor X.
Today I’ll answer:
+ Why would Marvel make it so Franklin Richards is no longer a mutant?
+ Is this development real or is it a fakeout? + Why accusing Franklin of *faking* his mutant nature is a much bigger deal than some think?
+ Should creators outside Hickman’s X-Office be playing with mutants?
+ Theories and predictions for what’s to come in X-Men!
