Welcome back to the Hero Express, your one-stop sometimes SPOILER filled shop through the news filled world of superhero’s in Film, TV, Video Games and whatever else floats your boat.
Even though I am eagerly awaiting the Schism storyline in the X-men comic books, the first issue of the prelude to it was really nothing special.
The issue starts with some unknown threat about to hit Utopia and Cyclops and his top advisors including Wolverine and Magneto are debating on how to handle it: run or fight. Most have made their position clear and await Cyclops’ decision as he contemplates what to do.
Thankfully after the last chapter of Age of X, the story didn’t nosedive as I predicted it could. It finally revealed in this issue just what in the hell is going on in this strange world and also who is more than likely behind it. I still can’t figure out if everyone in the Age of X world is their counterpart in the real world or if they are entirely new characters, but either way the whole thing will get wrapped up in the next issue of New Mutants. For those of you wanting to spoiled, highlight everything after the word spoiler in the next paragraph.
