|The big celebration on Krakoa when it was established as the new home of Mutants.|
Say what you will about the series, "District X," and how it was sometimes a bit wonky, it presented the story of an area of New York City where a bunch of mutants lived and it felt like a real place. Apartments, stores, and all that were in this place that seemed like a real district where mutants had gathered to live much how in cities you get certain demographics making an area a cultural hotbed. We got a feeling of a mutant culture and life in the city, as viewed through the eyes of mutant and non-mutant police trying to keep crime under control between uniquely mutant-affecting crimes and underground crime rings.

"District X," felt like a real place in a city, Krakoa just feels like a storytelling tool right now. What do mutant residents of Krakoa do for work or fun? Is there a monetary currency, internet or television beyond how it is mentioned in one issue a cable hookup exists now to see what is going on in the outside world? Hopefully, as even more X-Men books keep coming out at least one or two will have a bit more fleshing-out take place of what life is like on Krakoa.
