In the aftermath of SCHISM, the five issue limited series which literally split the X-MEN into two opposing factions, each with their own ideology, X-MEN REGENESIS kicks off this Wednesday in the X-MEN: REGENESIS #1 one-shot.
This is it, folks, with Wolverine heading up his faction of X-MEN, and Cyclops heading up his team of X-MEN. Really, what we’ve seen is Cyclops take on a more MAGNETO-esque role, whereas Wolverine and his team seem more in line with the principles of Charles Xavier.
In a nutshell: Cyclops is pretty much on his way to crazy bad guy city. And, we’re loving it. It’s actually a really cool parallel to the Magneto/Xavier situation, as we’re seeing two long-time comrades-in-arms finally reach a breaking point where their ideologies and principles cause them to split.
This week’s REGENESIS one-shot provides a fantastic jumping on point for the new X-MEN titles that’ll be launching in the wake of X-MEN: SCHISM, so whether you’re pumped to follow Cyclops and his team in UNCANNY X-MEN (which renumbers at #1), or WOLVERINE and his crew in the new WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN ongoing series, this is a great place to start.
Want more background on REGENESIS and the rift in the X-MEN? We’ve got issues 1-5 of SCHISM in stock, and that should get you caught up on everything that’s gone down to lead to this. However, Regenesis does serve as a pretty easy entry point if you haven’t yet read SCHISM.
