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.

Marauders #3 heats up the Sebastian Shaw angle as he gets top billing this issue. The focus isn’t just on him, although it’s quite clear his power plays are the main focus of the narrative.

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.

If it’s a war you want, well it’s a war you’ll get! Shaw is clearly gaining his son’s trust to go after Emma and Kate Pryde.

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