From the House of Ideas: “Immoral X-Men #1” Pushes “Sins of Sinister” Forward

Her name is Emma Frost, the White Queen, and she is the baddest, telepathic mutant around.

At least, that’s how I view the character, who has come along way since the Dark Phoenix Saga, becoming one of the most beloved members of the X-Men over the last 20+ years. Frost has jumped right into Xavier’s dream over the years, and has been a key part of the Quiet Council in Krakoa since this era of the X-Men began just a few years ago.

Emma is front and center as part of Immoral X-Men #1, which follows the ongoing Sins of Sinister event series currently running through various X-books. Written by Kieron Gillen and illustrated by Paco Medina, Immoral X-Men #1, like the first issues of Nightcrawlers and Storm & the Brotherhood of Mutants, is set ten years following Mister Sinister taking over the world thanks to his brilliant machinations (I love that word when talking about the character, btw); however, there’s a fly in the ointment as the X-Men that are supposed to be onside with everything Sinister does, have developed wills of their own, wills that don’t necessarily jive with Sinister’s own. For everyone loving the intrigue and character dynamics of the Quiet Council, this book is for you.

They said the mutants were humanity’s future. It’s 10 years later and they were proven to be right. The X-Men exist in a world that adores and respects them…so why are they sworn to crush it?! But while they do, Emma can take a few minutes out to crush Mister Sinister.
