Analyzing Religion in Jonathan Hickman’s House of X #6

Once again, I am happy to present another post from our friends over at Sequart from David Canham‘s ongoing blog series analyzing religion in Jonathan Hickman’s House of X/Powers of X.

Here is an excerpt:

“But, Krakoa is supposed to be a mutant paradise, a perfect society as first introduced in Chapter 1: House of X #1. Does a perfect society need laws? If everyone behaved with absolute moral righteousness, then theoretically the need for rules and commandments would disappear.  But alas, as stated in the Bible, ‘there is no one who does good, not even one’ (Psalm 14:3). We are all flawed and fallen beings (another recurring theme in this series), morally lacking and in need of guidelines. Consequently, even on Krakoa commandments and laws must be made. However, Magneto firmly declares, ‘But not the old laws of man – the new ones of mutants.’ Xavier shared this same sentiment earlier, telling the whole world telepathically, ‘From this day forward, mutants will be judged by mutant law, not man’s.'”
