Schism Teaser Reveals Long-Awaited Cyclops vs Wolverine Brawl

The leaders of the X-Men and X-Force will go head-to-head as the team is divided this summer.

The last two issues of Prelude to Schism haven't revealed much to X-Men fans about the big changes headed to Utopia. So, what is going to cause this "schism" and will it permanently divide the team? Marvel recently released a teaser image showing Cyclops and Wolverine in an all out brawl- so could this have to do with X-Force? We know that Cyclops initially set up X-Force to be the team that would do all of the X-Men's dirty work- but what Scott Summers doesn't know is that Wolverine has been secretly leading a new X-Force team behind Scott's back. Could this lead to a permanent division between the two mutant leaders? What do you think 'Schism' will be about? What will divide the team?

The first issue of Schism, written by Jason Aaron with pencils by Carlos Pacheco and Frank Cho, hits on July 13th, 2011. Will you be picking it up?

Looks cool.

from the outside this seems like a stupid and obvious idea, but Jason Aaron is writing it so I imagine this will rock, and rock hard.

Wouldn't it be funny if Jean Grey came back and took Wolverines side.

Please for the love of god have Logan end Cyke for awhile. Xforce is awesome and the rest of the current xteams  have been sub par in comparision.

Poor Cyke.Poor Child.Nobody loves this guy lmao

@TheThe:  Hes the second best Summers brotherbehind Havok in my eyes. Vulcan was ok till they made him a whinny little B*tch still Cyke edges him due to Vulcans  " superboy prime impression"

I rather hope Cyclops blasts the face off that pointlessly over-hyped character that is Wolverine. I am sick of him appearing in everything, being the reason for everything and involved in everything. Honestly, did the new Avengers have to pour their abilites into F*&%ing Wolverine of all characters when Doctor Voodoo, Strange and Hellstorm were all there? Does he need to be in the Avengers, the X-Men, X-Force and everything else? I honestly hate the character and think that Cyclops has gone from strength to strength in his characterisation and ability since Morrison's New X-Men cast him in a positive light away from the "I AM SCOTT SUMMERS INEFFECTUAL LEADER AND BY THE BOOKS MAN. LOOK AT MY EYES I MISS MY WIFE" He's a proper character now.


Thank God.

I can't believe people are saying Cyclops is an ineffectual leader. He pretty much protected and united all of mutant kind with Utopia. Wolverine would never be able to achieve that. Also, I want Shadowcat as leader of the X-Men.

I honestly don't care, this just feels like a crappy "Fear Itself" style event that pretty much just needs to be over fast.

I've read both Preludes so far, and I kind of like the story direction. Seems more like a classic X-Men piece than a modern.
As for Wolverine and Cyclops having any kind of cognitive dissonance over the issue...that seems kind of silly but I'm sweeping
that notion under the rug.
For them fighting, I've seen this character vs character cover too many times over the past few years, and seen it never pan out 99%
of those times, so I won't get myself hyped for it (though FYI, and I like Logan, Cyclops has dropped him in nearly every match they have
ever had on panel, just saying).

This is like the X-Men's version of Hulk vs Thor!
Sidenote: can't wait to see The Avengers 2012!

That would be cool. Also agree with your points about Cyke.

Anyway, prelude to schism has started well and I think this story has lot's of potential. Can't wait. :]

Bingo, powered, powerless. Cyke's is the better fighter, hands down. The best lick Logan's ever gotten in was when he stabbed him in the head...and that was in an alternate reality lol

And am I the only one that remembers when Cyclops and Logan buried the hatchet and chose to act like the grown ass men they are and should be. Hell they even acknowledged a mutual respect for one another and Wolverine assured Scott that he'd stand behind him. Guess it doesn't matter, continuity, character development, maturation flush that. We's wants ta see a slobber knocker, pa!!! I like Jason Aaron, but the premise of this story is so contrived and hackneyed that I really can't bear to watch it play out again. Aaron should stick to writing Wolverine and leave my X-Men alone. Dammit haven't Brubaker/Fraction done enough during their reign of mediocrity?

Please, please, PLEASE, let this event change how the books work

Cyclops will kick Wolverine a...s in a second...

Posted by Xenozoic Shaman

Wolverine is amazing, fighting Cyclops while also doing his thing in the Age of Apocalypse, and aiding the Avengers.  ...and women say that men can't multi-task!

Posted by DEGRAAF

i hope this either help Cyclops evolve his powers to where they should have been moved a while ago or i hope Wolverine stabs him and Cyclop's body explode from the energy inside of him

Hurray for Cyclops, boo wolverine...

I like to think of Cyclops as like, president/prime minister of this new world for mutants. He provides a necessary role as leader, but no-one particularly likes him. You can either be a hero or be the guy who saves the world, and they aren't always the same guy.
Posted by Zjd106

I prefer Wolverine, but summers wins it.


Reasoning, in the teenage mutant ninja turtles, the turtle with the sword can't use his weapon because its a childrens show.. You can't have a character getting stabbed with a sword and dying or something... You can't have cyclops getting stabbed. (You can however have WOlverine getting shot by eye beams)

Cyclops >>>>>>> Wolverine.

Posted by The Sadhu


Scott is badass and could take Logan in this battle!

 

Go Cyclops!

Posted by Darkmount1

Maybe this whole thing'll end with probably the biggest surprise--Jean Grey returns FOR GOOD.

Aarrghh...you guys are so funny !  #Youjustkilledme#comebackfromthedead#deadagain lmao Since when ScottyBoy is a bad ass ? For more than Fourty years now,writers are trying to built him as "the ultimate" X-man,leader or whatever.

But it doesnt work.Nore his bandmates or readers care about him. 
Cyke is a total failure.They better move on already,it's a new decade.

They need to bring or choose someone born to lead,with charisma,intelligence and influent,like Storm ,BP ,Magneto etc.Even Emma is more respected than Scott.The guy just doesnt have the "it" thing.He doesnt have it.that's all.

If he happen to die this time,i can assure you  the majority will be happy.

Wolverine will end up killing him if they fight, which is a shame. Wolverine sucks. :P

Please explain when did he exactly save the world ?Do you really think Cyke is irreplaceable ?

am rooting for wolverine.

Posted by Burnstar1230

I don't really know about the physical fights between Cyclops and Wolverine, isn't it always a one-sided fight between the two since Cyclops is the tactical fighter and Wolverine is the tactical killer. It has never been to the point that they wanted to kill each other, which may be the reason why Cyclops has supposedly beaten Wolverine in the past. I like Cyclops (despite being a general asshole) and Wolverine (despite being in every other marvel comic book team right now). Despite that picture, I doubt there would be a fight to the point that they're gushing blood like Cyke is right now.

Posted by Midnight Monk


Wow lots of Cyke haters on ComicVine and lot of these reason you guys are posting as he's an ineffective leader is utter BS. Cyclops has been the best leader for the X-Men and Mutantkind in general, he always thinking several moves ahead of his enemies and has shown that he willing to make the tough decision even if their sometimes unpopular.

 

Wolverine is certainly not someone you want representing your entire species especially since he prone to murder and has a laundry list of enemies plus he couldn't think of half the stuff Scott does, Wolverine's idea of good plan is too pop the claws and see what happens.

 

He the reason why Wolverine and the X-Mwn got cancelled after 1 season =P

either wolverine doesn't stand a chance or cyclopse doesn't stand a chance................ depends whos faster................
