This looks like a good read.

Storm is just a massive D!CK!!! Worse Xman ever...
osideous - 5/19/2014, 2:49 AM
@supersomething616 that's just idiotic.
Atumbem - 5/19/2014, 2:56 AM
@supersomething616- yeah I agree, she's a massive tool and douchebag just like Wolverine.

It's just bad writing. The majority of the X-men treat Scott like he was never their friend, like he was never the greatest X-man. All they remember is the ONE thing he did wrong but they choose not to remember he was possessed when he did it. By the Phoenix. Jean killed billions whilst possessed by the same force and they couldn't forgive her quick enough.
pigvalley - 5/19/2014, 3:15 AM
And another thing. Bishop once shot Xavier in the face whilst trying to murder a baby...but Storm welcomes him back with open arms.

I love Terry Dodson's art. That variant is really cool.
SugarYumYum - 5/19/2014, 3:43 AM
Jesus Christ, I am so ready for this Schism shit to end. It's become exhausting hating Logan, Ro, and the rest of their dickish hypocritical selective memory bunch but I can't help it because they're being written like the type of people I can't stand just to keep up this premise. Just a few years ago, I'd been ecstatic to hear Storm is getting a solo series and now I can do is scowl whenever I see a single picture of her.

The Avengers are even worse off as much as I enjoyed the AvX Cap/Cyke special, Steve was behaving like a hostile toolbag for most of it and it frustrated me seeing him that way because he's my favorite Avenger.

I really like cyklops X-men... Cant understand why they put this bad artist on the X-men... Its really bad!!!!!
patrat18 - 5/19/2014, 4:06 AM
I'm lost.
SCURVYDOG619 - 5/19/2014, 4:27 AM
Odds are Quentin Quire is messing with Cyke's team...
PsyGuy - 5/19/2014, 4:29 AM
@SugarYumYum

You should still be excited for the storm solo! It sounds like she'll be separate from all of this Cyclops crap. She's just been written badly the past couple of years. It's CRAZY that this is her first ongoing solo title

@pepe - derp.

Bachalo is bloody brilliant. Think you need to clean your eyes out. With bleach. And turps. And sandpaper.

ManCalledSting - 5/19/2014, 5:45 AM
Meh on the art, and I hate mowhawk storm.
ManCalledSting - 5/19/2014, 5:46 AM
Also, Cyclops was right.
arsonjack - 5/19/2014, 6:00 AM
wolverine is right, cyclops deserves to die
mctrinket - 5/19/2014, 6:02 AM
Cyclops is a douche.
PiggyV - 5/19/2014, 6:06 AM
How is Wolverine right?
shangho - 5/19/2014, 6:20 AM
For once Cyclops isn't written as a leader who questions himself and a crybaby pining after Jean (Dead or Alive).Now if they could just do away with this split he could be the true leader of all mutants as he should be!His approach is just enough Xavier and just enough Magneto to make it work
Bl00dwerK - 5/19/2014, 6:30 AM
@pig You're right, man. Bendis and co. have turned the entire Jean Grey School, like 85% of the X-Men, into complete douchebags. Storm sucks now but, I tell you what, she's not half the bitch Kitty is now. I can't stand Kitty Pryde anymore. I hope, whoever this sentinel builder is, he manages to kill here cranky ass...
ManCalledSting - 5/19/2014, 6:53 AM
Shangho gets it.
NegativeNerd - 5/19/2014, 7:42 AM
Cyclops fans be raging, yo! Lmao
Shadowmaster35 - 5/19/2014, 8:24 AM
I'm still sticking with my hope that with Wolverine biting the dust in the coming months, that Cyclops just digs himself into a deeper hole and it ends up being Wanda and/or Hope who end up being the ones to finally make some real changes into the treatment of mutants. I'm sick of Wolverine and his team of d-bags and I'm reallllllly sick of this Mutant Revolution crap. Sigh....I miss 2004.
ManCalledSting - 5/19/2014, 8:55 AM
Kids these days....
KrazyForKomix - 5/19/2014, 9:27 AM
Two points:

1) Damn his art is gorgeous!
2) SugarYumYum, shangho, Shadowmaster35 are all correct!
All this heroes fighting heroes crap is old. I do so wish Marvel would stop inventing reasons for the good guys to fight each other. Don't misunderstand - they can genuinely disagree, be they Avenger or X-Men, but this conflict between four sides/shake up the rosters/more conflict between sides/more shaking of the rosters has got to stop. It's yawn inducing.
Dunejedi - 5/19/2014, 9:48 AM
Heroes fighting heroes is a long-standing tradition in all comics, not just Marvel. It's not going anywhere.
adamcawa - 5/19/2014, 9:49 AM
I almost would prefer if this team just finally up and became the New Brotherhood. Quite frankly, Emma and Magik are just not nice people. It's clear the Avengers and other X-Men team are going to continually get in Cyclops' way, for whatever reason.

As it stands, it'll probably be his team who are the ones who save Dazzler and stop the "new" brotherhood. I don't mind them as an anti-hero team, especially when it's so apparent they're in the right here, but it'd be much cooler to just make them villains outright. No mind control, not misunderstandings - just... Cyclops wants the mutant race to survive and is willing to do anything to have that happen. Magneto was about mutant superiority, Cyclops is about mutant survival. The best villains are the ones whose motivations you clearly understand and even sympathize with. You can even sometimes root for them even though you know they're wrong. Have Cyclops declare war on humanity. That'd be some epic shit.
SCURVYDOG619 - 5/19/2014, 9:55 AM
Yeah, I just saw a tease of the AXIS event coming up this fall on Bleeding Cool...

SPOILER: Seeing who the X-Men and Avengers have to face...Hoo boy....

How does a team comprised of Loki,Carnage,Doctor Doom, Sabretooth,Green Goblin, and the Red Skull in Onslaught's armor sound to you?
TheDarkKryptonian - 5/19/2014, 9:57 AM
Honestly, I think Cyclops should have died way back in AvX.
DrDoom - 5/19/2014, 10:03 AM
Is that Mysterio?
PunkRockJesus - 5/19/2014, 10:44 AM
I hate how people bash Bachalo's art, it doesn't have to be your "thing" but in no way is he a bad artist. he has a bitchin' style!
RajunRemyLebeau - 5/19/2014, 11:15 AM
I have loved Bachalo's art for 20 years from back in the Gen X days. Haters gonna hate. Read his Sandman stuff if you don't like his more abstract style, or, you know, just bash it and miss out.
SugarYumYum - 5/19/2014, 12:13 PM
@AJS1987: LOL it's mainly because I really do miss liking other characters. I usually save my rage for Tumblr but this preview had me typing away before I could even change tabs. :-P

@Psyboy: I hope so. That and her FINALLY being free from Logan's dick
so she can be awesome again will be the things that likely change my tone about the solo.

@adamcawa and shangho: I agree with both of you actually. To me, it actually makes perfect sense to me for Cyke to eventually go his own way taking parts of what he's learned Xavier, Magneto, and his own experiences as leader of the X-men/mutant population. I just hate the way they've gone about it. I'm glad Kurt somehow escaped the D-bag virus, it's been a joy having him back.

@bl00dwerk: God, don't even remind me of Kitty and Young Jean. I was in on a LONG three-way rant about those two when AXNM #26 dropped.
Bl00dwerK - 5/19/2014, 2:16 PM
@YumYum Cyclops should have told Kitty to go to hell...
Bl00dwerK - 5/19/2014, 2:42 PM
BTW, Uncanny X-Men has been great overall...
case - 5/19/2014, 8:19 PM
I think the artwork's great...
NegativeNerd - 5/20/2014, 12:22 AM
@SugarYumYum: LOL understood bro. Understood :D
