There might not be a whole lot going on in Prelude to Schism but looking at the images for Schism #2, we're getting more of an idea.

Schism is intended to be the event of the summer for the X-Men. It'll be interesting to see the reception this event will get when Fear Itself is still going on and Spider-Island will be happening as well. Fear Itself is meant to be the giant event involving all the Marvel Universe while this, and others, are meant to be smaller and more self-contained.

Schism will be written by Marvel Architect Jason Aaron and with art by Frank Cho. What we can see in these preview pages is Sentinels are attacking.

Sentinels? Really? This clearly can't be the big threat that is threatening to wipe out all Mutankind. How many times have the X-Men dealt with the Sentinels? There's got to be something else brewing. Wolverine and Cyclops will be banding the mutants on Utopia together to take on the threat head-on. The tension is boiling and one of them will go too far.

Easy money says it's Wolverine but maybe it will actually be Cyclops that causes the Schism. We should be finding out in July. And if all that wasn't enough, check out the last preview page below for the return of a certain character that is bound to cause more problems.

== TEASER ==

Schism #2 is on sale July 27, 2011 and will have a $3.99 price tag.

Yup pretty sure that's Quentin.

I was thinking the same thing. 
 
To add to that, is that an omega symbol on Mr Pink Hair's shirt?

Quentin Quire? He is definitely more interesting than Sentinels.

Yes, his name is Kid Omega after all...


This looks terrible. Bow our heads in a moment of silence for the death of intelligent X-stories.

Obviously Rouge is trying to distract the Sentinels with that much cleavage.

My theory is news of X-Force is released to the public which initiates a sentinel no-holds-barred beat down on mutants. Quentin escapes the basement (he is still in their basement, right? He was there at the end of Endsong and I presume they brought him along to San Fran aswell) and offers to help out. Of course, given his past, there'll be a massive "We can't trust him" "We have no choice!", one thing will lead to another and BOOM Wolverine and Cyclops are no longer bestest buds

I know. 
 
I think a limit needs to be placed on how many books there should be for certain franchises. How many X-Books were there at last count?

I thought Kid Omega was soup? Interesting to see him walking around, alive. Either way, bring it on. I want to read the story.

xforce becoming public and being the main problem makes a lotta sense. this could be it. it would be interesting reading

#17 Posted by goldenkey (2927 posts) - - Show Bio

I have a feeling Cyclops is going to look like the asshole out of this story.  I don't have doubt in my mind somewhere it will revolve around Wolverine continuing X-Force, and the killing of a child.  This just look like a good story. 
#18 Posted by PhoenixoftheTides (3443 posts) - - Show Bio

Ugh, please leave Quentin in the X-gutter. I didn't like the character, unfortunately, and don't see how his addition is going to make the Schism more interesting.

#19 Posted by jubilee042 (1353 posts) - - Show Bio

the sentinels were  attacking  musllims so wrong  would did they do terrorist do wrong thinngs and kill muslims in pakistan each day they suffer each day(public im talking about) so wrong they are clearly muslims as if they arn't suffering enoughthat just made me angry i hope(well demand from marvel) they have a logical explanation for this  poor dust

I have faith that this will be good 
 
I am not going to judge this based on some pictures that have no set up and no dialog, so full steam ahead!

#21 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3815 posts) - - Show Bio

maybe the X-Men are bored with fighting sentinels by now....I would be....but in that pic with Rogue ripping the head off- they all look like they're really phoning it in

the sound effect from Cyke's optic blast should be "BLAHHHH!"

#22 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

is anyone else bothered by the fact that schism was an x-treme x-men story line?

#23 Posted by Chesapeake (2210 posts) - - Show Bio

The sentiles are great but who is behind them. I dislike that Quentin guy.......

I'm glad Cho is doing the art.  Ever since I saw his art In Mighty Avengers I've been a big fan of his.

I agree, I wish they would just leave him behind. Like most of the stuff from the Morrison run.

I just wish things weren't so spoiled in solicits. I firmly believe that if solicits didn't reveal much, people wouldn't be as jaded with comics.
 
See Bullseye Vs Elektra. If that were today, people wouldn't bat an eyelid.

Great, Quentin is back and he has a insane hairdo to go with his insane brain. 
 
Also why bring back the 60's Sentinels, they aren't  a threat anymore, someone should use the prime sentinels again

is that guy in the 2nd picture with the white hair and red sunglasses cannonball?
#33 Posted by PhoenixoftheTides (3443 posts) - - Show Bio
@Tigerstriper: I actually liked the Morrison run, but there were some weird things that he always does in his stories (weird character concepts, making it necessary to read the speech balloons to have any clue what is going on, and the weird prologues to actual storylines) that are just Morrison-isms I've learned to accept. I didn't like the Riot at Xaviers storyline or the platform boots that Jean and Emma wore.

@Iron Apollo: Lol, should we be? not gonna lie, i was at the start but then i got over it =/
@Timandm: I would've liked it if they used No girl as the Morrison's character, it would be nice to see her with a body O.O.
#35 Posted by golvellius (207 posts) - - Show Bio

I really don't know what to think of the X Men nowadays.....just when things were getting interesting after Age of X they pull this one off.  I hope that New Mutants and X Men Legacy wich are the only smart X-titles out there are not affected by this.  Quentin is just plain irrelevant why bring him back.  I'd preffer an good old fashion "I come from the future" story line involving the X-Nation 2099....I mean I know its kinda been there done that with Rachel, Nathan, Bishop....but I'll have to admit it kept things interesting....oh well maybe I am just being nostalgic....Where are the good ol' days when villians were great???? GamesMaster, Mesmero, Mr. Sinister, The Adversary, The Upstarts, Exodus, Sauron....Its time to rise a New Brotherhood....I mean Sentnels...AGAIN????

I feel like No girl is one of those characters that the writers had great plans, but for whatever reason, they never got around to telling her story...  Hmmm, she is the one that stopped Quentin the last time he made of a nuisance of himself.  Wouldn't it be interesting if she some how 'possessed' him?  You know, sort of kicked out his consciousness and took his body and powers...

#39 Posted by labarith (670 posts) - - Show Bio

Come on - we already know the story, right? 
 
1.  Cyclops says "mutants should be seperate - on Utopia" 
2.  Wolverine says "Mutants should mingle with humans." 
 
The big question is WHY do they say that.  And I can't think of a darned reason why.

#40 Edited by Avenging-X-Bolt (12398 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadpool is the reason behind schism, he caused it so that he could join the x-men

Word. The sentinels are a pathetic Joke now. There was a time when a single sentinel required the full, expert tactical assault of the X-Men's heavy hitters to take one down. Now they're made of fiberglass and have the AI of every special ed student you've ever been required to protected in the escort mission of  First Person Shooters.

@AgeofHurricane as far as the story goes, no not at all. Most of that story line in x-treme x-men was inconsequential. But why name a big x-event the same as a little story line, can the x books have an original title for a story line?

Not sure its in character for Quentin to wear pants that baggy. I'm guessing its Cassandra Nova in drag.

Retro Sentinels being a threat? Seriously?

#50 Posted by BransonHuggins (97 posts) - - Show Bio

It is Quintin, it was confirmed quiet awhile ago that he will be a major factor in Schism.  My guess, he turns the Sentinels on the humans, and on the X-Men, in order to bring him down, and stop this, the X-Men have to kill him.  Causing a schism in the team.  Some siding with Wolverine and others siding with Cyclops.  Even though Cyclops has had Logan do these things in the past for him, he will have problem making that decision now, especially with the mutants potentially returning in numbers, and knowing that this was a former student, that they failed.  We'll see though.  Should be good.
