Remember “Phoenix Warsong” where Sublime harvested Emma Frost’s eggs to turn them into thousands of Cuckoos? “Phoenix Endsong” seemed like a concerted effort for “Phoenix Warsong”‘s plot because the end left off with the Phoenix visiting the Cuckoos.
Re-reading “New X-Men” #116 (E is for Extinction), I scratched my head at the part when Emma talks to the driver. It sounds oddly familiar!
Warsong’s plot was one of the most bizarre readings I’ve come across, but, perhaps, it was planned out longer than we thought. Let’s not forget when Wolverine, Cyclops and Fantomex visited The World only to find out it hosted the Weapon Plus program (and created Wolverine and Captain America). “Phoenix Warsong” later revealed that the Stepford Cuckoos were Weapon XIV.
While Emma was written well in that series — I’ll say it again — it was seriously one of the most scary and bizarre stories I’ve come across. I remember rushing into the comic store every month for the issue, too. My reaction:
Just something odd that I thought I would share with you all!
