X-Men Schism #4 (Spoilers) DiscussionMarvel Comics X-Men Schism #4 by Jason Aaron and Alan Davis hit the stands on Wednesday. Read what your fellow comic fans are saying about this issue and join our forums to contribute to the discussion.




Outhouser Pat started off the discussion:

Jason Aaron is writing the shit out of this mini. Alan Davis drew the shit out of this issue.

I’ve never really flipped through a fight scene and said "holy crap that was well done" until today.

actual spoilers (invisitext):

Cyke realizes he's pretty much screwed with the super-8-spaceship sentinel coming at Utopia and decides to make a stand. the x-kids all gather behind him and decide to stand with him, as Logan washes up and is like "no way bitch, not with these kids." He goes to his room to pout, talks to Quire for a second while arming a bomb big enough to take out the island. he goes back to Scott with the detonator, informs everyone of his plans, the kids leave, and the Scott vs. Logan brawl begins just as the Sentinel reaches the island.

Jean. They both pretty much brought up what jean would think of each other, which led to the fight.

I didn't think he could do it, but Aaron is really pulling this together after waiting until half-way through the miniseries to show what the Schism is over. Man, this was a great issue. One of the best of the week, hands down.

In answer to Wolverine's question, I would assume she would be frightened of the person who killed his children, repeatedly threw himself off a cliff in regret over said children, oh, and rigged an entire island to explode.

actually who knows if the "killing his children" has HAPPENED before or after schism... and he's rigged the island to explode to STOP the sentinel... if after he warned them to leave they don't its not his fault.

and on the matter of killing his children, he didn't know they were his children until after they were dead. all he saw them as was people hired to kill him, so he killed them before they could kill him. when he found out about them being his kids he was clearly distraught. Which is why he threw himself off the mountain, punishing himself for what he himself did.

Honestly with how far away from who Cyclops was when Jean was alive, if she saw who he was today, and how similar he is to Magneto, i could see her being frightened. Wolverine hasn't really changed character wise, he's still the man she knew, he still will do ANYTHING to get the job done, which he always did.

Sorry, I knew I should have worded that differently. While I am definitely more on Scott's side, I am getting a little tired of both of them fingering pointing at the other. At this point, neither of them really have any moral high ground to stand on.

If Jean had a brain, she'll get with someone other than those two.

i don't understand how anyone is on scott's side.... he's become a villain. How can you argue against using young children as pawns and weapons with little to no remorse?

... because none of the "children" shown there have not seen combat. Every single one of them has either been involved in a battle or has had a direct hand in killing another human being.

And because when there are less than two hundred of your entire species left and most of your A and B Teams are elsewhere, you have to make the hard decisions.

But she doesn't because what's left of her brain after Xorn gave her an aneurism is being munched on by worms.

Sorry, I just couldn't resist it. It was just sitting there and I thought, "Hey, just go for it."

Again, sorry.
