X-Men Civil War? Marvel Announces X-Men: Prelude

Press Release

THE X-MEN WILL FALL

This May, leading up to the biggest decision of the X-Men’s lives, Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Jenkins and rising star artists Robert De La Torre and Laurence Campbell sow seeds of this discontent amongst the ranks of the mutant nation in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)! There is a calm before every storm and in the months to come, the Children of the Atom will be faced with a decisive turning point. One that threatens to pit brother against brother, lover against lover, and mutant against mutant.

“To understand what is coming in the X-Men, you need to understand what has already transpired” says X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “The history of the X-Men is a huge tapestry and what we’re trying to do here is sum up the necessary info, while filling in blanks and adding new twists that will set fanboys a-Twittering. In this series, Paul lays out the complexities for the fans so they can see the foundation that is beginning to crack.”

The dream that Charles Xavier built – crumbles and what you knew about the X-Men changes here. It all begins in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)!

This goes in line with something Bleeding Cool said the other day, that the X-Men would be broken down into Cyclops’s team against Wolverine’s team. I guess living on an island all military like, with Logan secretly running X-Force, and Scott stretching himself too thin, this isn’t too out there of an idea. But at the same time, we just had a Civil War a few years ago, so let’s hope that this brings enough originality to the table to make it must buy!
