Kitty Pryde Is Not The Red Queen Of The Hellfire Club As Reported (Spoilers)

Last week saw the publication of Powers Of X #5, which laid out a redacted version of the members of the Quiet Council of Krakoa. Including the members from the Hellfire Club, three as requested by Emma Frost.

Herself, the White Queen, Sebastian Shaw, the Red King and… one other.

Some sites such as Comics Beat were sent digital versions of the comic book in advance by Marvel Comics (Bleeding Cool does not get such advance copies) and were able to use that to redact the redactions, posting the following:

SPRING

  1. Black King Sebastian Shaw
  2. White Queen Emma Frost
  3. Red Queen Kate Pryde

With Marauders writer Gerry Duggan seemingly tweeting confirmation of this.

And Marvel e-mailing out the following (which we did get), with Kitty Pryde meeting Emma Frost and getting ‘An Offer You Can’t Refuse’.

We know that she is the Captain of the Hellfire Trading Company in Marauders. But was this also to be the Red Queen of the Hellfire Club and their third member on the council?

Well, with the release of House Of X‘s final issue #6 today we have an answer. No. Because while the list is only partially redacted and does not name the third member, we have a different title.

If she is the third member of the Hellfire Club that is part of the Krakoan Quiet Council, it’s not as the Red Queen. But as the Red King.

House Of X by Jonathan Hickman and Pepe Larraz concludes today. Powers Of X #6 is published next week.
