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.

“Before I’m even asked, yes, the stories impact several of the big X-Books, like Uncanny X-Men and Young X-Men,” says X-Editor Nick Lowe. “But 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.”

Marvel Comics has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek at the upcoming X-Men Divided We Stand.

Plus, there’s also an additional, previously unsolicited story starring Hellion and guest-starring Magneto!
