Full X-Men: Regenesis Teasers Revealed

X-Men: Regenesis Teasers Revealed

I used the full extent of my X-Men knowledge and deductive prowess to identify the shadows in the X-Men: Regenesis teasers. Now that all the shadows have been eliminated, let’s break down who’s on whose side of the fence after X-Men: Schism. Let’s also see which of my educated guesses were right and which of them were absolutely wrong. Let’s start with Team Cyclops.

X-Men: Regenesis Guessing Game

While everybody else is freaking out about the thought of the DC universe (as we know it) ending this week, I’m meticulously poring over the X-Men: Regenesis teasers. It looks like we’re getting 8 X-Men team books after Schism with Team Cyclops and Team Wolverine getting 4 books each.

You say “WTF, that’s a lot of mutant books!” but I say “YES!” Also, I’m having way too much fun identifying the shadows in these teasers. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

There’s a great mix of characterization and action here. Everything feels fresh thanks to this odd and highly volatile grouping.

Secret Six #1, Secret Invasion, and Other Face-Rocking Comics

Looks like I’m on a one-post-per-three-weeks schedule with these reviews. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing, and I don’t want to spend a whole paragraph on figuring it out. So let’s get right on to the reviews.

Secret Six #1: I enjoyed The Six’s guest appearance in Birds of Prey so much back when Gail Simone was still writing that series, I decided to check out their first ever ongoing. It’s now on my pull list. I guess I just got to have a Gail Simone book in there at all times (I dropped Wonder Woman because it just wasn’t working out for me).
