Druig and the Eternals have started their assault on Krakoa and the X-Men. Thankfully, the mutants aren’t alone in this war.
The war between Eternals and mutants started eons ago. Back in 10 million B.C., Thanos’ great-uncle Uranos found mutants and killed them. He stated that they were nothing but deviants. And, if left unchecked, they could take over the world. Druig, now Eternal Prime, decided to follow in those same footsteps. He declared that mutants are deviants and need to be extinguished.
In the first issue of A.X.E.: Judgment Day, Druig began his assault on the X-Men, mutants, Krakoa, and Arakko. A plan that involved Uranos.
First, Druig went and got his plan voted on, explaining that mutants are deviants that need to be killed. Since the Eternals’ purpose in life is to kill deviants, they voted yes to killing them. Druig sent Uranos to Arrako to kill as many mutants there as possible while other Eternals went to Krakoa. The other Eternals were sent to take away the mutants’ ability to come back from the dead. They succeeded in killing Egg (Egg was smart enough to make a replacement for himself in case he died). Then, the one of them tried to kill Hope and the rest of The Five. Thankfully, Wolverine was there to save Hope from being murdered.
After the first attack, Druig started another assault. This time, it wasn’t physical. He broadcasted a message all over the world. He said that he was going to take care of the mutant problem with giant beings called the Hex. Since humans are back to hating mutants because they’ve conquered death, most people were happy with what Druig was doing.
