Where exactly do the X-Men stand after the Messiah CompleX? Some are missing, some are out on an extended walk-about, but we know one thing – there are no more new mutants.
â€œBefore Iâ€™m even asked, yes, the stories impact several of the big X-Books, like Uncanny X-Men and Young X-Men,â€ says X-Editor Nick Lowe. â€œBut the best part is that these stories peel back the curtain on some of your favorite X-Characters. The writers and artists REALLY rose to the challenge of their 8-pagers.â€
Marvel Comics has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek at the upcoming X-Men Divided We Stand.
