Warning: this article contains spoilers for House of X #2 and Absolute Carnage #1!
One X-Men Character Just Completely Changed Marvel History
House of X #2 is the first of several issues with major, game-changing plot twists for the X-Men franchise. This chapter reveals the truth about Moira MacTaggert. It turns out that this longtime X-men ally is actually a mutant herself. Her power causes her to be reincarnated in the womb and relive her life over and over again. Moira is now on her tenth life cycle, having spent many lives trying to help the mutant race prosper, only to watch them be wiped out by Sentinels again and again.
This time around, Moira is changing the game by opening up her mind to a young Charles Xavier and showing him her past lives. This one act promises to have sweeping ramifications for the Marvel Universe, as there’s no telling how much this act has changed the past ten years of X-Men history.

Carnage Recruits an Unexpected Ally
Absolute Carnage #1 officially kicks off Marvel’s latest crossover event. And while we knew coming in that Spider-Man and Venom would be recruiting a lot of help for their battle against a turbo-charged Carnage, we didn’t realize Carnage himself would be recruiting allies. This first issue culminates with Spidey and Venom trying to rescue an incarcerated Norman Osborn (who was recently driven mad after bonding with the Carnage symbiote) before Carnage can devour him. They’re too late, though, as Carnage uses the other asylum inmates to create an army of symbiote drones. And rather than kill Osborn, Carnage transforms him into an ally. Osborn believes himself to be Carnage, and he now has the powers and the costume to prove it. That means Spidey and friends now have two Carnages to worry about.
Is Marvel Setting Up X-Men vs. Fantastic Four?
“Between the Marvel Comics relaunch of the X-Men line and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirming at San Diego Comic Con that new movies featuring the merry mutants are on the way, it’s clear that big things are in store for the X-Men. But what remains to be seen is how these new iterations of the X-Men will take shape. If the events of House of X #1 from writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Pepe Larraz, the issue that just kicked off Marvel’s new era of X-Men comics, are any indicator, then the X-Men are heading for a showdown with that other superhero property that just came back under Marvel Studios control, the Fantastic Four.” -Joshua
