The Day I Talk About "House Of M"

Ok, I just replied the sms. I hope everthing's gonna be ok...

(Ok, I'm going to start blabbing about my comics here, so if you're not interested, you don't have to read it.)

Now, let me talk more about the "House of M" event in the Marvel Universe right now. I've just received a shocking revelation today from issue #7 (there are ony 8-issues cos it's a limited series). The person behind the whole madness is not Magneto. Nor Wanda Maximoff aka Skarlet Witch (Magneto's daughter).

It's Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver (Magneto's son). Don't ask me why he's got so many kids; Maybe he's just a really horny guy. Anyway, Pietro and Wanda are twins. Just for your info, Mags has another daughter, Lorna Dane aka Polaris. She's sorta mad too, but let's not go there today.

The whole "House of M" (HOM) event is about the altering of reality on a really big scale by the combined powers of the Scarlet Witch and Charles Xavier (he was forced into doing it). You see, Wanda has the ability to control "chaos magic", which is part of her secondary mutation. It allows her to alter reality. Her initial mutation only enabled her to change probabilities to her favour, and they came out in the form of "hex bolts". It's pretty hard to explain but you get the idea.

So anyway, the Witch had just gone mad recently, killing a bunch of her former team-mates with her new powers that she couldn't control (she was an Avenger) and was wheeled onto the land of Genosha by her ever-loving papa. Long story short, she went mad again and this time, she altered reality on such a great scale that nobody knew anything about it cos they were brainwashed.

Then in comes Wolverine, and he manages to "awaken" the X-Men and Avengers' inner subconsciousness, waking them up from the "lies" of the new reality. So then there's this really big fight, and in issue #7, all is revealed that the main mastermind was Quicksilver.

My jaw dropped when I saw that page.

Like literally. I could hear it hit the groud.
