What’s Happened To The X-Men?

In the wake of Messiah CompleX, there are no more X-Men…but what does this mean for those mutants who once united under Xavier’s dream? X-Men Divided We Stand Book 1 (of 2) sets up the new status quo for mutantkind, with an all star creator lineup including Mike Carey (X-Men: Legacy), Matt Fraction (upcoming Uncanny X-Men, Immortal Iron Fist), Craig Kyle (X-Force), Christopher Yost (X-Force), Skottie Young (New X-Men), Brandon Peterson (Ultimate Vision), Jamie McKelvie (Phonogram) and Sana Takeda (Drain)! Wrapped in a gorgeous cover by Peterson, this can’t-miss X-special follows your favorite mutants as they adapt to this bold new world. What’s happened to Cannonball and Husk? What did Nightcrawler do after Messiah CompleX? How disbanding the X-Men affect Storm, Black Panther and Neznho? And what about your favorite New X-man, Anole? Plus, there’s also an additional, previously unsolicited story starring Hellion and guest-starring Magneto!

“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 urges retailers to check their orders on all X-Men titles, as the Divided We Stand tie-ins continue to sell out at Diamond and generate buzz. After the X-Men end, were does it leave the mutants who fought the good fight? Find out in X-Men Divided We Stand Book 1!
