Xavier is dead.
The residents of Xavier’s School for the Gifted have made their peace, for the most part, with their departed headmaster. In his stead, Warren Worthington III has stepped up – not only as the new headmaster, but as leader of the X-Men. The school trudges on and still actively fosters the education of young mutants and as they learn to master themselves, they may yet discover their part in the ever-changing world that wants little to do with them.
Magneto is dead.
In his attempt to wield the Phoenix as a weapon, his only accomplishment was to incite the redheaded mutant to violence. After she awoke from her coma with Lensherr and Xavier at her bedside arguing, the overwhelming force of her telekinetic abilities decimated both men where they stood. The Brotherhood disbanded without a leader, forcing its members to part ways and they eked out new lives for themselves. While some sought independence, others searched for a new family.
The Hellfire Club burns.
With Emma Frost absent, the school and its sister-organization crumbled. Students were left without a teacher and they refused the hand of charity offered by the X-Men. Instead, those few students who remained found a common ally in the remnants of the broken Brotherhood and together they formed a new group: The Exiles. The new group’s founding members wanted little to do with Xavier’s School and its X-Men, and are driven by their collective losses to find other mutants who might join their cause against the Cure and humanity. Though the Queen has gone missing and her pawns have retreated, the Black King steps forward to begin the game anew.
Exiled no more.
The freshman group led by Blink, Pyro and Quicksilver has successfully stolen Cerebro out from under the X-Men and their plan to recruit has just become a great deal more serious.
A new cure.
The public has had access to the Cure for nearly two years and yet mutant-human relations continue to sour, forcing some to develop bolder ways of dealing with the fractured population. Bolivar Trask has stepped forward and the approved Sentinel program has already begun its beta testing of the Mk-I Sentinel units; dozens of mutants country-wide have been captured and placed under quarantine, avowing to the program’s success. Still, there are some who believe that there is a better way to police the mutant population without succumbing to murder and kidnapping.
There may be someone watching.
But who watches the watcher?
