Quote1 If you wish me to kill for you, then I will. You need not trick me, or convince me...I will kill for you. I have killed for Magneto, for Exodus, for Sinister, but you...you are different. I can smell the death on you, and I like it. Quote2
-- Senyaka

Synopsis for "Wither"

Selene reminisces on her life, how the Hellfire Club failed her in her path to godhood for being so pathetic. She eventually found Wither and subtly taught him to embrace his powers of death. However, after a month, Wither still held the horrible memory of himself killing Wallflower and was distracted. Selene decided to help get over it by capturing an innocent couple for him to kill. Wither was hesitant to do so, so Selene magically alters the couple's appearance to resemble Wallflower and Elixir kissing. This enrages him so much that he kills them. Glad that he has truly embraced his dark side, Selene tells him that they have a circle that must grow.

Synopsis for "Eliphas"

Eliphas rises out of his grave, turned into a demonic vampire by Selene. He returns to Rome, where he finds another family in his former home. He then then learns that the family is descended from Mascius and his ex-wife Aurelia seven hundred years ago, before angrily massacring them. Seeking Selene, he caused a plague in Rome, to cover for his real purpose -- to reacquire the dagger Selene gave him to reap entire cities of souls. Throughout the ages, Eliphas, changing his name to Eli Bard, had been searching for a means to appease Selene. He first sought to sacrifice the anti-mutant zealots the Purifiers, before he discovered the Technarchy. Using the transmode virus, dug up an Apache tribe and corrupted their animal gods as the Demon Bear, before presenting the virus and the resurrected Caliban to her.

Solicit Synopsis

Selene's Inner Circle stand revealed... Wither, Mortis, Senyaka, Eli Bard and Blink. But what led Selene to gather some of the deadliest mutants in the world? Why would one of the X-Men's students join her? Who is Mortis? How is Blink alive? The stories of the Black Queen's death dealers are told in this anthology one-shot by some of today’s hottest artists!

Notes

  • Blink chronologically last appeared in X-Men Vol 2 #37, where she seemingly died.
  • The bite marks on Wither's neck implies that Selene may have bitten him to transform him into a vampric being as shown in the X-Force comics surrounding Necrosha.
