The X-Men Regenerate This Fall

We don’t talk a lot of X-Men on this site. It’s a darn shame considering this was the team that got me into comics in the late 80’s and early 90’s. It had glimmers of hope in 2007 with Messiah Complex and last year’s Second Coming, but inconsistency in the storytelling and art kept driving me away.

I then heard rumblings as of late that the book was getting back on track with Kieron Gillen taking the writing helm on Uncanny X-Men. Then there was the announcement of a summer X-event called Schism written by fan-favorite Jason Aaron that is touting a break-up of the team because of some drastic event that destroys Cyclops’ and Wolverine’s relationship. What once was considered a franchise on its own island to play in for the last decade seems to be pushing its way back up to prominence.

And that brings us to the Schism aftermath set for this fall:

Marvel has put it out there that Schism will break up the Uncanny series into two books – October’s Wolverine and the X-Men #1 and November’s Uncanny X-Men #1. Yes, that’s right – the long-running Uncanny series is getting a re-launch. Where have we seen that before as of late?

All we know is the two groups will grow out of Schism with different ideals and agendas. We don’t really fully know what Schism is bringing to the table, though you have to imagine it will have something to do with Cyclops finding out that Wolverine didn’t really disband X-Force the first time around. And Sentinels…lots and lots of Sentinels.

Say what you will about X-Men’s relevance in the recent past, but with the First Class movie getting rave reviews, Uncanny X-Force continually a top-notch book, and Uncanny X-Men getting momentum, it’s a good time to jump back on the X-Men bandwagon.
