The X-Men teams are split once again and the original founding members take center stage with familiar faces and some fresh takes on classic characters as well.
My Take: While I am unsure about the direction of two separate X-Men teams the real question is whether fans will connect with the founding squad that's getting a fresh coat of paint. What do you guys think of the old school X-Men team being back? Let's hear it!
