In a couple of months, the X-Men will be split into two factions in a mini-event called 'X-Men: Regenesis'. It's a great time to be an X-fan and it's also a good time for people who want to read the X-books to jump on. If you're one of those people, you'll need a handy guide to get you up to speed with the current state of Marvel's merry mutants. If you only know the X-Men from the '90s animated series or the film franchise, or if you stopped reading X-Men comics 10 years ago for some reason or another, you definitely need to be reintroduced to the world of homo superiors before you dive into Regenesis. Luckily for you, this is that handy guide.
Let's start with the head honcho of the X-Men. No, it's no longer that bald dude in a wheelchair. The X-Men -- all of mutantkind, actually -- is now led by Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops.
I can tell you several instances of Cyclops' awesomeness but I don't want to take too much of your time. So I'm just going to tell you that Cyclops is the Jack Bauer of the X-Men. He does whatever needs to be done to protect mutantkind -- all 200 of them, more or less.
