June 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of Marvel's Mutant Genesis!
The summer of 1991 was a great time to be an X-Fan. Marvel shifted into high gear with the introduction of new titles and creative teams that produced incredible storylines. The House of Ideas made a full-court press with its promotional campaign for Mutant Genesis, including creator appearances on the comic convention circuit, comic and fanzine advertising as well as an amazing set of retail displays and posters.
X-Force #1 - Marvel kicked off Mutant Genesis with X-Force #1 on June 25, 1991 following the finale of the New Mutants four months earlier with issue #100. With plot and art by Rob Liefeld and script by Fabian Nicieza, X-Force #1 hit like a big-budget summer blockbuster with tons of action along with plot twists and teasers for future stories.
X-Men #1 - Mutant Genesis continued on August 13, 1991 with the release of X-Men #1 amid extraordinary anticipation. This new title by Chris Claremont, Jim Lee and Scott Williams divided the X-Men into two separate tactical teams and introduced the Acolytes as new villains that would catalyze the return of Magneto as a villain.
Uncanny X-Men #281 - Plotted by Jim Lee and Whilce Portacio with script by John Byrne and art by Whilce Portacio and Art Thibert, Uncanny X-Men #281 introduces Trevor Fitzroy, a villain from the future who stages a vicious attack against the Hellfire Club in an attempt to win leadership of the Upstarts from Sebastian Shaw’s son Shinobi.
X-Factor #71 - As the original X-Men return to their core teams, Professor Xavier renews his government ties to help the U.S. form a new group under the leadership of Havoc with members Wolfsbane, Madrox, Polaris and Strong Guy in a fun and quirky title written by Peter David with art by Larry Stroman and Al Milgrom.
Excalibur #42 - Co-creator Alan Davis returned to the title as writer and artist alongside inker Mark Farmer with Excalibur #42 in a story that starts with the destruction of the team's lighthouse headquarters and is followed by the return of the bizarre extra-dimensional group called Technet and the introduction of a new hero Kylun.
Mutant Genesis had a seismic effect on the X-Universe and these titles brought together some truly remarkable creators that dazzled readers with amazing art and fantastic stories that channeled the best of the X-Men's history while introducing an incredible new array of characters and plots. These comics definitely stand the test of time and I'm looking forward to exploring them further over the summer.

Marvel & religion
Okay so I was discussing this with a friend and this is by no means a definitive list just the biggest characters (in my opinion) of these few faiths, but I’d love to hear any input you guys have.
Monet St. Croix
Captain America (Steve Rogers)
Scarlet Witch/ Quicksilver (maybe Jewish, never explored)
Punisher (used to be Christian, now atheist)
Hulkling (went to an Episcopal school, though I doubt he’s particularly a big follower)

now why is excalibur on your kin list 😮😮🙏🙏
FOOL 🗣 back in 1613 I served for the royal family as their adviser. We were a close bunch friends you can say but all of a sudden war broke out. Our kingdom was small and we didn’t have a big enough military for a all out battle with our enemies. Not to mention there was a small drought. But the king..although he was my closest friend he was a fool. He was determined to keep going and prove he and his kingdom could defeat the enemy. He was blinded by pride and a sense of superiority. I attempted to advise him not to do that. That the sake of the people were at stake that during everything so far we needed to find peace. That was...that was the first time we had ever fought. He didn’t listen to my advice in fact he threatened my life if I continued to speak my quote unquote foolishness. The king believed I had given up hope in the kingdom. That I was like the rest. Even after all this time? All the plans we had made to better the kingdom? He took his oldest daughter (they weren’t sexist 🙄) and they rode off into battle. Our army was wiped out almost immediately. Most retreated some became prisoners of war including the princess. She however managed to kill five of the soldiers guarding her and helped her fellow comrades escape but she was killed. The idiot king was killed in battle. The queens second oldest son grieved the news since he was so close to his sibling. He took his own life... The queens heart grew evil. She had one more daughter that she raised herself. Under her ruler ship the kingdom flourish. Grew. But it became more of a tyranny. She also blamed me for everything I had to flee
Therefore LISTEN WHEN I TELL YALL TO DO STUFF

Slow burn love triangle that soon turns into an ot3... now thats beautiful
Anon, let me give you the perfect example because I'm a nerd:
Sir Lancelo, Queen Arthur and King Guinevere.
Lancelot was Arthur most loyal knight but he was madly in love with Guinevere.
Guinevere was Arthur's wife but she was also madly in love with Lancelot.
And Arthur was loyal to them both, his right hand man and his wife.
Why having a love triangle when you can have the drama of the three trying to hide their love for each other only to realize they don't know in the middle of a crisis. And they become the ultimate alliance becasue bro, they're deadly together.
I love for those ships.
