Marauders #3 confirms an ‘Uncanny X-Men’ twist while things heat up for Emma and Kate Pryde

Marauders #3 ties back to Uncanny X-Men #20.

Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned. For more read our review.

In this issue we learn early on his son Shinobi Shaw was reincarnated thanks to Xavier, Goldballs, Proteus, Elixir, Tempus, and Hope. Last we saw Shinobi, he killed himself by sticking his own hand into his head and phasing it back in Uncanny X-Men #20.

It’s somewhat unclear what the backstory is with mutants these days thanks to the reincarnation tool allowing creators to bring characters back at different times of their tenure (just look at Vulcan).

That’s only part of the story though and I highly recommend you read it all to get the full picture.
