Honestly, I don’t know how X-Men fans keep up on what characters are on what teams (let alone which are wearing white hats this month). It’s exhausting. Civil War II: X-Men #1 offers yet another shakeup to the X-Men universe. With a new team of Psylocke, Sabertooth, and M., led by Magneto working to protect mutants from Inhumans, the group comes into contact with another team of X-Men including Jean Grey, Magik, Iceman, Old Fart Logan, and Nightcrawler led by Storm when unleashed Terrigen Mist threatens the lives of several mutants.
Neither friends nor enemies, at least for this issue, the two groups work together to prevent the slaughter of mutants. With Magneto back in his more familiar role as the leader of a more extreme group of mutants, the question left at the end of this issue is what happens now that one of Marvel’s most powerful characters has become aware of an Inhuman with the ability to tell the future? Likely nothing good. Oh, and Cyclops? Still dead. Sigh. Hit-and-Miss.
