Details Behind the Upcoming X-Men Schism Storyline Revealed!


As part of Marvel’s MMXI X-Men event, there is set to be a schism in the X-Men, leading to the X-Men seperating into two teams, one headed by Cyclops, and one headed by Wolverine.

Marvel were set to reveal the events that lead to said schism, this weekend at C2E2, but according to Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool, sources have informed him that:

“the split will be as a result of Scott Summers continuing to want to unite all mutants separately from the human population. He started doing this on the Utopia island, but this will be a, for want of a better word, permanent solution.

Logan will finally kick off against this, insisting that mutants should integrate into the rest of humanity. And will lead the X-Men team that leaves to promote just that.

This is reminiscent of the Xavier/Magneto split but directly reflects the age old problem of population management. Do you isolate or integrate? At extremes you have South Africa and Israel. But even in the melting pots of New York and to a lesser extent London, you have ghettos andareas of ethnic concentration, poth physically and mentally as cultures split and segregate.”

Sounds like an interesting story line!
