The Multiple Man Mystery Has Been Solved!
Last July, I set a task to solve a mystery about my favorite comic book character of all time, Multiple Man. Basically, with Multiple Man alive and well again on Krakoa, was he back to the regular, classic Jamie Madrox? Or was he going to operate under the new rules established for dupes while he was dead? When Marvel put out a “Multiple Man” comic starring a dupe, while the real Madrox was dead, they changed the rules so that duplicates could no longer make their own duplicates.
It was a dumb retcon and really grinded my gears.
So I’m very pleased to reveal that the retcon has been done away with in the first issue of X-Corp! Multiple Man is back, and his dupes can make more dupes!
I’ve never been so happy to see Multiple Man get punched in the gun by Monet!
His role in X-Corp is fun and I’m very glad that he’s back in regular ongoing comics again. I very much look forward to his continuing adventures. And I’m very pleased to say that the Multiple Man Mystery I set up for myself has already been solved!
