Tuesday, January 05, 2016 - SuperDupperSecretAndTotallyNotMadeUp Outhouses' Staff Skype Chat:

[Writer's note – spelling mistakes (the ones I could find ) have been fixed because, quite frankly, it was embarrassing]

RU: Hey yo

RU: Super[ginraiX], you about?

RU: Has there been a Marvel comic published yet that actually shows / explains why the mists were released?

Gavin: Mists?

RU: It's a word!

Gavin: :D

Super: Wasn't that part of the Terrigen Bomb that Black Bolt unleashed during Infinity?

RU: And its just now doing something?

Jude: It started making new Inhumans right away, no?

RU: When did it start killing mutants?

Jude: Does it kill them? I thought it sterilized them?

Jude: I can't keep up with all this.

Super: It does a lot of things, now.

Super: It has apparently already sterilized all mutants and prevented any future mutants from activating or whatever.

Super: If a mutant is directly exposed, they are either killed straight up or get seriously sick.

RU: When did that part start?

Super: And there's also the whole M-Pox disease that still hasn't been explained but effects mutants and is probably caused by the Terrigen Mists.

RU: The mists happened, then Secret Wars 1 – 8, then the mist hurts mutants ... profit?

Super: In-between Secret Wars #9 and Extraordinary X-Men #1.

RU: and Secret Wars #9 hasn't come out yet?

Super: Nope.

Super: So it's something that happened during the eight month gap.

Super: I don't know when the Terrigen Bomb turned into roving Terrigen clouds.

Super: In Infinity, it seemed like a one-time activator thing. Like: BOOM, all latent Inhumans are activated!

RU: so summarize: between Secret Wars #8 and now, Secret Wars ends, universes merge, some dead Secret Wars characters survive and some don't, the mists mutates, and we still don't know if most of the mutants are even still on earth?

Super: But now it's these crazy clouds that'll activate Inhumans and kill Mutants because F#@$ Fox Studios.

Super: Spoilers, RU?

Super: For the location of X-Haven?

RU: I asked, therefore spoilers are my fault

Super: Because we know where it is.

RU: has that been reveled?

Super: Yes.

RU: go for it

Super: It was revealed in Extraordinary X-Men #2.

Super: It's in Limbo.

RU: I'm turning this whole conversation into an article: "Breaking: Staff of comic book website has no idea what is going on with the mutants"

Super: Which has not worked out great because of course.

Super:

<<RU: I'm turning this whole conversation into an article: "Breaking: Staff of comic book website has no idea what is going on with the mutants">>

:D

RU:

<<Super: It's in Limbo.>>

How in the good fuck is that a good idea?

Super: I'm sad that I know this at all. Damn you, Super Reads!

Super: And damn RU for not reading the comics and already knowing this!

RU:

<<Super: It was revealed in Extraordinary X-Men #2.>>

<<Super: And damn RU for not reading the comics and already knowing this!>>

Ramos is gross

Jude: LOL that you think Secret Wars will end.

RU:

<<< Jude: LOL that you think Secret Wars will end.

That's some Illuminati level shit right there

RU: (real world Illuminati, not fictional like Marvel's group of heroes; The Illuminati)

Super: I thought the final issue was scheduled for next week?

RU: So, Black Bolt blew up a Terrigen Mists bomb that activated a crap ton of Inhumans (example: Ms. Marvel), then Secret Wars happens/ed and now those same mists that already did something are doing something else and no one knows what or why yet because the event that led into the eight month gap hasn't ended yet so we don't know what we are supposed to not know and what is delayed ignorance?

Super: Kind of. I doubt Secret Wars #9 will clear anything up.

Super: I think it's just one of those things that happened that they never have to fully explain. Like how Cyclops because Mutant Hitler between Uncanny X-Men #600 and Extraordinary X-Men #1.

RU: G-d, Uncanny #600 was awful.

Super: It really was.

Super: Because during that eight month gap, Cyclops did something so horrible, so awful, that he's like eight Magnetos and four Sabretooths all rolled into one Über-Hitler.

Super: And it involves some confrontation with the Inhumans.

[two hours later]

sds:

<<Super: It has apparently already sterilized all mutants and prevented any future mutants from activating or whatever.>>

Its full scientific name is Terrigen MacGuffin

We hope this helped to clarify everything.

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
