‘A.X.E.: Judgment Day’ #6 features death and transformation

The ‘A.X.E.: Judgment Day’ #6 finale is here, bringing more death and a transformation.

Spoilers ahead for A.X.E.: Judgment Day #6. You’ve been warned. For more on this issue, read our review.

If you were to grade Marvel events on the death toll on Earth, A.X.E.: Judgment Day would likely win. Its taken human lives, superhero lives, and then some, although, as we saw in the last issue, Captain America got a free rebirth thanks to the mutant’s resurrection abilities. Death and rebirth are significant themes in this event, no more apparent than in A.X.E.: Judgment Day #6.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Out today, the finale has our heroes racing to stop the Celestial that has decided to judge us and now kill us before it can wipe everything out. In these final moments, it turns out Eternals can now die, which is important as far as a major death is concerned in the issue.

In a last gasp to save everything, Sersi decides to use her words to convince the Celestial Earthlings can change and be better.

Its response is more than final…

It appears Sersi is dead for good, and while superhero comics tend to bring back heroes left and right, there is no way for this Eternal to be reborn. Her actions most certainly affect the Celestial, though, and inspire Jean Grey and Iron Man to continue to convince the Celestial it must not kill everyone.

That’s what leads to a significant transformation involving Ajak.

After a volley of words, the heroes have brought the Celestial to its knees with the truth that it may not be a worthy god for everyone. Ajak is asked the simple question, and she tells the truth.

It appears the Celestial then transfers its powers to Ajak, asking her to be better than it was.

This leads to a major reveal of Ajak’s new form and new incredible costume designed by Valerio Schiti.

Not only does Ajak Celestia–her new name–confirm Sersi is dead, but that she is the new Eternal god, and her church is born from the martyrdom of Sersi. Heavy stuff.

This is only a snippet of the story, and I highly recommend you read the entire issue. It’s an exciting finale and a unique one for superhero comics that usually involve fight scenes, whereas here, Kieron Gillen uses words.

You can buy it wherever you get your comics or digitally.
