Uncanny X-Men v2 #4-FB

Post by Frans » Sun Sep 09, 2012 4:47 pm

Has anyone already determined when the flashback, as depicted in Uncanny X-Men #4. Mr Sinister capturing a Phalanx and probing it. It's not seen before. I thought it could happen around the Phalanx Convenant storyline, but do not know for sure if Sinister was around then?

Also I'm not certain when the second flashback? happens when Sinister (in new costume) returns from an X-Men fight and disposes of all test subjects. The Phalanx later surfaces from the ground, due to assimilating worms, and then assimilates a girl and later a whole town. It seems like it happens over a long period of time.

I wondered about this when I first read it - it seems like the Extinction team appears here out-of-sequence:

1) New-Sinister appears directly after UX2 3 (the previous issue)
2) There is, as you say, a long gap after the New-Sinister scene while the Phalanx rebuilds itself
3) The Extinction Team show up with Psylocke in place of Frost. The scene where she's asked to fill in is at the start of the next arc and in response to the appearance of Tabula Rasa. And that arc ends with Frost's arm still being reattached.

I suspect the order goes:

UX2 1-3 [Sinisters arc]
UX2 4 (4) [Sinister disposes of lab]
UX2 5-8 [Tabula Rasa arc] ~ UX2 4 (5) [Phalanx rebuilds itself]
UX2 4 (6-20) [Extinction Team destroy Phalanx]
