First Look: The X-Men Enter CIVIL WAR II

How will the team be divided?

No Caption Provided

As the heroes of the Marvel Universe stand against one another, the Mutants will face their own war. Today, Marvel presents your first look inside CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1 – a new Civil War II series from writer Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men) and artist Andrea Broccardo (Kanan: The Last Padawan)!

Terrigen Mists encircle the globe, igniting the Inhuman race while simultaneously crippling mutantkind. As conflict between the two nations simmers below the surface, a new Inhuman with the ability to profile the future has emerged. As heroes of the Marvel Universe battle over whether to use this Inhuman’s ability or not – one mutant will take matters into his own hands. Fearing this untapped power may tip the scales in the Inhumans’ favor – Magneto is willing to wage war with the Inhumans and even his own kind to prevent that from coming to pass!

No longer sitting on the sidelines, Magneto will use his terrifying and awesome power to take mutantkind’s fate into his own hands! Though he may be surprised who stands with him…and who stands against him! The battle lines are drawn this June in CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1!

CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1 (of 4) (APR160871)

X-Men wasn't big part of the original Civil War. Hopefully they have a bigger role this time.

This actually doesn't seem as bad as people would think that said I think everyone knew a war between mutants and inhumans was inevitable.... I feel in a way death of X will more or less be a contuination of where this mini tie will leave off.

Considering how obsessed the X-men are with changing the future... I would be suprised if any would say '' Yea, lets keep the status quo''...

Logged in just to say how beautiful that cover is by David Yardin.

All the work from the other covers and the interior art is pretty amazing, but that Yardin cover is just something next-level

They should bring back normal Molly! Victor Mancha left the Runaways prior to Avengers AI, Nico has joined A-Force. What happened to the rest of them? They could do something with the whole M-pox storyline, which would affect Molly and Klara Prast.

Sure, but I root for adult Molly Hayes first, normal Molly already had her time.

Question......Do the X-Men HAVE to be apart of Civil War 2????? They were not present in the first one so what makes this Civil War any different than the first? What is it about this Civil War that The X-men MUST choose a side????

@omni_troll: easiest solution for me at least is marvel unlimited I don't think many are aware of it or know about it some people who have tried it aren't too fond of the at times slow loading times and lag it can have depending on your internet connection....

But with that said its easy for me and more cost effective even with trades/volumes/collections into account like it's an all you can read digital streaming service for anything marvel related.

And I am very well aware that for many people digital isn't for everyone they love psychically and holding and owning psychical copies of said title but at least for me and it's really how I started getting into comics and reading marvel comics.

like I always wanted growing to get into and read comics but it always like seemed so expensive and I was so thankful I found this and of its existence because I can actually read comics and it's far more cost effective for only 9:99$ a month and for anyone that wants to buy psychical more power to them it's just for me and probably many people it's more cost effective especially when there's just so much you want to read but you don't want to go broke.

Only downside is they're kinda slightly behind on so many 90's era comics mostly X-men and they wait until like six months after release to add the newest and latest comics.

Why cant the X-Men just be united for once... the X-Men don't have to fight eachother all the time, why can't the X-Men just side with Iron Man against the inhuman pricks...

Funny thing is, in Avengers Alliance's latest Spec Op (which is loosely based on CW2), that's exactly what they did. All mutants except Molly Hayes and Avalanche were on Iron Man's side, all Inhumans except Quake and Ms Marvel were on Carol's team.

@stormphoenix: the first civil war was about non mutant superhumans being registered. Thus one is about changing the future which is something the z-men would definite benefit from

your differing opinion doesn't matter, put aside your feelings and do what is best for your people, which is putting the inhuman menace down, they are alien experiments, homo superior is the genuine path of human evolution, not some kree test tube babies huffing kree streroids

@stormphoenix: the first Civil War was about registration, something the Gov' had been trying to do to mutants for years, they stayed out of that because on the one hand they didnt want to register, and on the other, they didnt want to be seen is some rebel force that would only serve to make normal people fear and hate them. not to mention that they didnt have enough numbers to fight a war. Currently mutants are locked in another war for survival, with dwindling numbers, M-pox, the terrigen clouds killing or turning mutants sterile, etc. Magneto and his squad are stepping up to defend their race. if they take out the prophet then that levels the playing field, if they can turn him... thats a huge asset to have. Storm took her team and hid, Cyclops is dead, the Prof is dead, and Emma is missing(?). someone needs to stand up and fight

"How will the team be divided?" By making loads of cash! Marvel loves money now that thy have "popular" movies. Who cares about X-Men when you got money coming from Hollywood elitist and brainwashed movie goer minions.

@kid_apollo: I took it as their damned if they do and damned if they don't. I mean xmen get shit regardless and even if they did register would that really stop some nutjob who can easily target their school? Didnt the school get attacked during (or before) Civil War killing most their students? If anything I can understand Xmen being "nope" to choosing sides.

@killraven4334: bUT that's just it!!! Certain x-men may have a DIFFERENT OPINION ON WHAT BEST FOR THEIR PEOPLE. Are you even listening to yourself? You're ignoring what the whole war is even about to just hate on the inhumans..

It's not about Mutants vs Inhumans, it's about changing the future or letting it happen.

@sprior93: Storm, Nightcrawler and Iceman aren't good. I like Jean's though. Magik has been questionable for a while. The Uncanny Costumes are fine imo

@kid_apollo: No I get that I understand that, but I guess what i'm trying to say is what does THIS Civil War 2 MEAN to the X-men. I feel it has nothing to do with them it has no meaning to them. What Magneto's opinion about this WHOLE thing is just dumb and reading about what he's been doing makes it more dumb. What Storm did was an act of desperation. What Cyclops did was an act of stupidity. And Emma doesn't Exist if she was her NOBODY would follower nor care what she thinks. With all of this, this makes me believe the X-men don't need to be in this fight. They are dealing with the loss of many mutants as well as teammates. I know why they didn't join the first one Emma had said it plainly clear to Tony. I just don't think this second Civil War has anything to do with them.

That's just me.

Love it..People like to complain about everything these days if its not perfect or if they don't like ,I know people have those opinions but hating on someone's artwork cause there's one little mistake or if you don't like the costumes is little dumb. Other then that I'm excited the X-men weren't sort of the first civil war so I'm excited to see witch role the will have in this one.
