Is Schisms the worst X-Men story, ever. Looking back at X-Men history, can anyone think of a story that more poorly written than Schisms?

@time: Onslaught, and the entire X-men run of Chuck Austin.

I'm inclined to agree.

Does the Ultimatum event count as the X-men were apart of it?

Most of everything involving Madelyne Pryor was fairly ridiculous

I liked the premise of the first Onslaught story but not the execution, particularly the final showdown.

I think the first AvX was actually better than this newer one but we'll see.

*Cringes* We shall not speak of such horrors.

I didn't really see the point to Schism. I suppose now Marvel is happy they now have another major selling book.

AvX...no words...

Schism is the most rushed x-men story ever written. Just four issues and one tie-in for the so-called biggest X-plit? Give me a break.

My goodness no... there have been plenty of awful X-men stories... Schism just seems to have that reputation because of how recent it is... if anything, it is most in jeopardy of simply being forgotten in time, rather than remembered as being particularly awful... even in the most glorious of glory days, there is always some form of bad X-Men story being written...

(And I like the Chuck Austen run! Albeit from a semi-giggly standpoint...)

Now that I was going through my collection Quarantine belongs on the list as one of the worst stories.

No, AvX definitely takes the cake for that one
