The Queue: Nate Grey

In the 90’s X-Men storyline Age of Apocalypse, the son of Charles Xavier, David Charles Haller (a psionic mutant with multiple personalities who went by the name of Legion) traveled back in time to before his father and Eric Lehnsherr, the mutant known as Magneto, had their falling out. Legion intended to kill Magneto before he could become the super villain who fought his father so many times, but instead he accidentally killed his father, altering the timeline and removing himself from existence in the process.

In the altered timeline that resulted, the mad geneticist Nathaniel Essex took the DNA of Jean Grey and Scott Summers and used it to create a perfect mutant, one with psionic powers so great he could kill En Sabah Nur, the mutant madman who ruled that alternate Earth as Apocalypse. When the timeline was reset, Nate escaped that timeline and ended up in the 616 Marvel timeline, where he made friends with Peter Parker and Franklin Richards and even got into a fight with Cable, who was also a mutant bred by Nathaniel Essex (also known as Mister Sinister) by tricking Scott Summers into marrying and having a son with Madelyn Pryor, the clone of Jean Grey.

This is relevant to today’s Queue, I promise.


The Queue: What a week, huh.

This is The Queue, where you ask the questions and we answer as best as we can. After the extremely long weeks between Halloween and Christmas, that ‘best as we can’ bit does quite a bit of heavy lifting.

If only there were a few extra hours in every day for sleeping. Like, a dozen would do it. Let’s Queue this thing so I can take a quick nap.


The Queue: Are we there yet

Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!

Realistically, I know we’ve got some time to wait before 8.3. But guys, I’m dying to go to Ny’alotha. I’ve been wanting to go there for a very, very long time now. And it’s right over there, just on the horizon, which makes the waiting even worse. Can we go already? Please? No? Okay, we’ll settle for answering your questions.


The Queue: I have a case of alt-itis

I’m torn. I know I’m going to level a Vulpera. I mean, if you know me even a little, you know that’s happening. However, now that Shadowlands was announced, I really want to go back through and do all that content dating back to Cataclysm, when Sylvanas may-or-may-not have first made her deal with The Jailer. The catch is, Vulpera will likely start at a higher level, and I’d really like to go through all the Silverpine quests. Also, I have to wait for them to be released, and waiting is hard.

While I wrestle with this conundrum, we have some Queuein’ to get to…in.


The Queue: Twitterpated

Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!

Do you think Azuregos knew about the whole Shadowlands thing when he fell in love with a spirit healer? Like did he know where she came from, did she tell him stories about the Shadowlands and what went on there? Do you think we’ll find him somewhere in the next expansion hanging out with her, maybe even having actually taken some kind of mortal-looking form? I wouldn’t mind seeing our blue dragon buddy again, you know? But enough of my questions — let’s get to yours!
