X-Men #1: Are Wolverine and Cyclops Involved in a Ménage à Trois with Jean Grey?

X-Men #1 has arrived and while it has its fair share of action, the explosions arent what got readers talking!

Seriously, what’s happening on the moon, right now? House of X and Powers of X is complete. Jonathan Hickman’s new X-Men title is here.

At first glance, it appeared to be much of the same X-Men shenanigans we’re used to seeing. Watching out favorites rip through an enemy base as efficiently as they’ve ever done. Magneto was Magneto. Cyclops and Storm weren’t acting out of the ordinary as they plowed through gorillas, various robots, and unnamed henchmen. We even got a little bit of Polaris mixed in there for good measure.

The four-man team was able to save a good number of mutant test subjects being held there before they all returned to Krakoa for a warm welcoming. That was quite possibly the most emotionally charged part of the whole book.

But we’re aren’t here to talk about that so much. No, we’re addressing the elephant in the room no one seems to be looking at. Things didn’t really get weird until Cyclops retired back to this private home on the moon…

X-Men #1: What’s Going on in the Summer House...?

Krakoa is more than a single landmass. It’s two. One located in the Atlantic Ocean and another, the mainland, in the Pacific Ocean. Apart from those, there are small habitats located throughout the planet, as well as on Mars and the location we’re talking about today, the Blue Area of the Moon.

Actually, the lunar habitat is located just outside of the former home of the Inhumans. It’s called Summer House. Made evident by the title, it’s the home of the Summer family, as well as a staging ground equipped with two or more spacecraft.

The base itself is a self-contained biome, which is basically a giant Krakoa flower. It has five levels and consists of a Kitchen, Dining Room, Communal living area, Observation Deck, Ops, Gym, and a Hanger Bay.

Below the surface levels is a pool with access to the Krakoa gateway. Currently, it’s inhabited by Rachel, Cable, Havok, Vulcan, Cyclops, Jean and… Wolverine.

With Vulcan’s strangely comedic platitudes, Cable’s youthfulness, Rachel’s more stoic than usual demeanor, or how house-wifey Jean is acting- Wolverine stands out the least. Though I’m still not sure why he’s there, to begin with.

Characteristics aside, what is, or should be causing a stir are the living arrangements. The Central Living space is laid out in a circular fashion with the rooms positioned in three clusters of three.

Vulcan and Havok’s rooms are adjacent, so they share a common wall, with another empty room. Cable and Rachel’s rooms are part of another cluster with another empty room between. Not much to talk about there, however, there’s the last cluster of Wolverine, Jean, and Cyclops.

Cyclops and Jean do not share a room. The status of their marriage is up for debate. The vows were, “til death do us part,” and both have died so… who knows (Hickman)?

What caught my attention is the fact that unlike the other clusters, their three rooms are linked either through open spaces or retractable doorways. Strange. What’s stranger is that Jean’s room is positioned smack dab between Wolverine and Cyclops’!

I want to give them the benefit of the doubt, but with how strangely everyone has been acting since the start of the summer, it’s hard not to imagine some freaky stuff going down on the moon.

X-Men #1: What’s Going on in the Summer House...?

I don’t know what to tell you, folks. I don’t know what’s weirder. The idea that Wolverine and Cyclops are willingly sharing a house when they don’t have to, or that both men’s bedrooms are perma-linked to Jean’s.

What are your thoughts on this? Let us know below, good people.
