Re: House of X
I know comics are well known for retconning, but Xavier was in her mind when she died. That's not something that should be easy to fake. And if this is 616, why does Cyclops have both eyes? Hope shot one out. Why is Wolverine asking about the afterlife when he just recently paid it a visit? Why is Xavier getting emotional when the people on the suicide mission are likely pod people? (and where are the regulars?)

But overall I just don't see 616 being life X. Given what Destiny said, I think we're going to see life XI. The only way that happens is if things reset from life X. I just don't see this storyline being the big, universal Marvel reset (which is what each of her deaths is, essentially) that seriously monkeys with continuity. That's why I think basically everything we have seen has been past lives and the other shoe has yet to drop.
