The X-Men’s Newest Threat Should Become Their First Villain in the MCU
One of the X-Men's most powerful villains is a key player in their new story – proving that Exodus should be their number one enemy in the MCU.
Marvel's biggest threat to the X-Men is the mutant Exodus — who, in addition to being a villain-turned-anti-hero, is the MCU's first mutant villain.
The X-Men have fought many memorable villains on screen, from Magneto to Apocalypse to Sebastian Shaw and many more.
But just like Immortal X-Men #5, Marvel confirmed that Exodus would be a formidable villain for the next generation of MCU X-Men – for one very important reason.
In the current X-Men continuity, almost all mutants have settled on the island nation of Krakoa: a living, mobile island that provides a safe haven for all mutants.
The island was recognized by the United Nations in exchange for several mutant inventions given to humanity.
Heroes and villains gain a home in Krakoa, and even Professor X and Magneto work together for the good of mutantkind.
Among those on the Silent Council is the mutant Ex0dus, one of the oldest living mutants (and one of the deadliest).
