So, who’s the first mutant? That’s Namor, right?
Except Apocalypse, or En Sabah Nur, who’s name literally translates to “The First One” is many thousands of years old…and a mutant.
Oh, but Selene is thousands of years older than him, so is it her?
But, no, there were mutants one million years BC, and one of them was a red haired girl, who became the host of the Phoenix.
Jason Aaron continues to rewrite the ancient history of the Marvel Universe and I am quite happy for him to do so, because he’s really, really good at it.
This issues is illustrated by Dale Keown, so it’s no surprise that the art is really good too.
But coupled with Dan Slott’s revelation that Franklin Richards isn’t a mutant over in Fantastic Four, there are a lot of non-X-office writers messing with mutantdom at the moment, and one can only hope that the editorial teams of all these books are actually communicating and coordinating all of this.
Still, good comic is good.
