Civil War has reached Professor Xavier's Institute for Gifted Youngsters and the 198 have decided to take up arms against the Sentinels keeping watch over the remaining mutants in Civil War: X-Men #1. Marvel has sent us a five page preview of what to expect.
Civil War: X-Men also sees the reunion of the surviving original X-Men as Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, and Beast try to quell the 198 insurrection.
X-Force fans rejoice as Domino, Caliban, and Shatterstar return to set the 198 revolt into motion. It's up to the X-Men to keep the peace but what happens when Bishop chooses to side with the O*N*E* instead of his teammates?
Will Bishop resort to violence against his friends in order to do what he thinks is in the best interest of the 198?
The X-Men have been spread thin following the Decimation of most of the world's mutants and the tension has finally reached its breaking point in the pages of Civil War: X-Men #1. Witness Civil War from the X-corner of the Marvel Universe as the original X-Men go head-to head with Bishop (and some surprise cohorts) while the 198 and X-Force are caught in the middle.
Civil War: X-Men #1 (of 4), (MAY061962), is written by David Hine with pencils by Yanick Paquette, and cover by Juan Doe. It hits comic stands on July 19th with a retail price of $2.99. Visit the Marvel Comics for more information on this and other available titles.
