Still waiting until they find out about his X-Force, what a wonderful revelation THAT will be.

Wolverine's secondary mutation must be Super Time Management.  
 
He's part of the X-Men, X-Force, and two Avenger teams. 
 
That kind of stress must be the reason why he's so grumpy most of the time. Poor guy.

I hope kitty is on the team because I love her relationship with Wolverine. They have such a great father and daughter relationship

They lampshade this from time to time:
 
 
 
There's an even better scan of a sequence of scenes as he's in a different uniform fighting a different battle every day and he slowly gets more and more worn down. I can't find it though.

I read an article speculating that Piotr and Kitty will have to split up and will join one of the two new teams. It was argued that Logan and Kitty will end up on the same team.

"Lampshade Hanging" - that's a brilliant way of explaining it. Thanks for the info!  
 
I think I saw that sequence you're referring to. And I also saw that scene you posted from X-Men Schism #1, if I remember correctly. Very good scene that establishes a lot of things. And the humor and the banter between Scott and Logan is always appreciated.
 
I like the Wolverine character, but I'd rather Marvel limit his regular appearances to a couple of books outside of his solo series. Still, "Wolverine and the X-Men" will probably make money so Marvel will keep the Raging Cajun on as many teams as possible, regardless of this humble fan's opinion. :)

Maybe Logan wants to move back to New York so he doesn't have the same commute to the Avengers teams

Errrrrr. I wanna say October? 
 
Nope, it's November.

@Morgaine_de_Bourbon: Cool. I might look into this. Don't wanna get Schism though. I'm kinda full up on books.

I see Kitty phasing out of the ground on the bottom right. Definately see Iceman. Who is the flying chick? I want to say that guy on the left is Havok or Cannonball and Nightcrawler is under him.

I still cringe when I hear the title "Wolverine and the X-Men". I know a lot of the younger fans think Wolverine is the be all and end all of the X-Men but the truth is he has never been a leader of the X-Men, but more like a trusted adviser and enforcer. 
This is a decision I suspect made at a level higher then regular editors (perhaps Disney playing with their new toy). I have said before a shake up in the status quo can be a good think but giving us more Wolverine when we are already overloaded 
with Wolverine is a bad decision, but it seems most of the fan boys have already drank the Kool-aid and are looking forward to this.

Glad they're going back to NY.  (Love all the teams based out of there) Sad it's an over-sized issue because that probably means closer to $5

@djotaku: There's going to be a price reduction.

@AgeofHurricane: awesome.  That's really smart of them.  The crack dealer strategy.  Make all the Oct/Nov titles cheap so people get hooked.  Good for them.  Better make those issues great ones, then.

@djotaku: :D.

Still don't really see this as a positive direction for the X-world.

Just met Aaron. When my bro asked Aaron if the one with the lenses his Cannonball, he said he likes Cannonball but that isnt him. When asked if it was Dark Beast, he said maybe than he LOLed. Hmm... So maybe Cannoball is with the New Mutants???
 
ALso, we asked about ICeman...he said he really likes ICeman and one of his personal favs. Never denied Iceman was on Logans team or not. Actually strrongly hinted he is on Logans team and has a big showing in Novemeber.

met him at the Toronto Fanexpo today. I asked him some questions about his direction for the book. He didn't want to give clean answers but he hinted that Iceman was indeed on his team and that in November (start of Wolverine and The X-Men. Coincidence?) he is set to have big things ahead of him. I can quote him as saying 
 
" I like Iceman a lot. He is one of those characters who has vast potential but never fully realized them. His heart was always in the right place over the years but something always held him back. Iceman fans watch out for him in November." 
 
he also CONFIRMED that guy we think is Cannonball with the googles/glasses (red background pic) is NOT Cannonball. But when asked if he is on the team, he didn't say he is not on the team or on it. When I asked if it was Dark Beast....
 
"That is not C-ball, but I do like him a lot. I can't say if he is on Logan's team or not. Dark Beast? *smiles* Maybe."  
 
He also said he is going to focus on numerous characters (over ten not including cameos) and not just Logan will be in the spotlight.
