The History Of The Marvel Universe #6 out today, goes up to the present day and then continues into the future. For the present day it gets as far as the House Of X series.
And the resurrection procedure invented by Professor Xavier to bring mutants back from the dead using the skills of five mutants, who also have to keep being revived as well to keep the procedure going.
The five are Goldballs, Elixir, Tempus, Proteus and Hope…
…with the Professor – or Jean Grey – kickstarting the final process.
Bleeding Cool reported how this meant that Goldballs, previously a joke of a character, was now to be taken very seriously indeed. And previously in Excalibur. he had talked about changing his name from Goldballs to Egg.
Well, The History Of The Marvel Universe #6 reveals the new codename seems to have stuck, despite Betsy Braddock's mocking.
To be honest, I'm not sure that's any better. But that is the official record now…

The History Of The Marvel Universe #6 is published today from Marvel Comics. I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store. If you are in the neighbourhood, check them out.
