Synopsis for the 1st StoryEdit
Wolverine and Cyclops announces that mutantkind is “splitting up”, and set about recruiting core X-Men to their sides. Wolverine convinces Iceman to join him, but Psylocke refuses, opting to remain with Cyclops, and only serving on Wolverine’s X-Force team for the jobs that need doing.
Colossus and Shadowcat separate, with Colossus remaining on Utopia, and Shadowcat joining Wolverine in Westchester. Beast gets an email from Wolverine, informing him that he is re-opening the school, and agrees to join him.
Rogue and Magneto say their goodbyes as Magneto decides to remain on Utopia, while Rogue is going to Westchester. Havok and Polaris are on a date when Wolverine approaches them about the organisation called X-Factor Investigations.
Hope is furious when she learns that one of her Lights, Oya, will be going to Westchester. Transonic and Hope argue, with Transonic holding a weapon to Hope’s head, but Transonic succeeds in convincing Hope to let Oya go to Westchester.
Cannonball and his sister Husk decide to change their lives and move to Westchester, while Mirage informs Cannonball that the New Mutants will be remaining on Utopia. The two friends share a drink and kiss.
Dazzler reveals to Cyclops that she is thinking about leaving, but Cyclops convinces her to remain in San Francisco, as he wants a “street team” of X-Men, including Dazzler and the X-kids. The X-kids however are divided amongst themselves about whether to remain on Utopia or go back to Westchester. Hellion warms those who stay behind that they will be meat in the grinder, while Prodigy puts forward reasons for staying on Utopia.
All across Utopia other mutants and associates of the X-Men make their decisions whether to stay or leave. Toad pleads with Wolverine to take him to Westchester, offering to be the school janitor. Storm prepares to leave, but Cyclops begs her to stay, as he needs her to make sure this does not go wrong. When he talks to the White Queen, she tells Cyclops that he simply assumes she will remain with him, and reminds Cyclops that she is a teacher, that she loves children, and has sacrificed so much to be with Cyclops. However, she informs Cyclops that her fortune will have to keep Utopia afloat with Angel away, and agrees to stay on Utopia. With that, the X-Men go their separate ways.
When the dust settles from the X-Men’s Schism, a line has been drawn, and every mutant must choose. Who will they follow — XXXXXX or Wolverine? Either way, with mutantkind cut in two, things will never be the same. Setting the stage for this month’s WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN #1 and November’s all-new UNCANNY X-MEN #1, Kieron Gillen (UNCANNY X-MEN, JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY) and Billy Tan (UNCANNY X-FORCE, NEW AVENGERS) take us through the ranks of the X-Men as they choose their destiny.
- In this issue, the metaphorical caveman version of Cyclops is shown wearing a lion over his head. In the comic's script, writer Kieron Gillen misspelled when he meant for Cyclops to be wearing a "loin cloth."

Ah. Regenesis. I get it. A clever play on 'genesis' always being in X-Men titles. Did they take it too far this time? Idk, but it's a little old either way..
This will be a bit shorter than my normal reviews, as there really isn't a whole lot to say. I'll just sum up what I can in one giant paragraph that should really not be just one paragraph. But oh well..
The world of X-Man fans needed this issue. It (almost) 100% tells who is on what side. That's the entire book. Rogue and Magneto split, Colossus and Kitty split, the 'younger' ones split. Nice to see Glob Herman, Toad, Avalanche, and a couple others even choosing sides. So apparently Agent Brand committed an act of 'beast'iality with Beast-pun intended. Irma (or was it Phoebe? or Celeste? crap..) hates Quentin Quire, so that's really the only reason they're staying on Utopia? lol wow.. I actually am a little surprised with Storm staying on Cyclops' side (you know, not counting when preview artwork already revealed this), that was one case I didn't predict. A little annoying to see Havok and friends already back on Earth. Sorta gives away the end of the Legacy arc. And where's Korvus? Not that I care for him, just curious.. Hurm. Perhaps he gets left in space. Oh no! This issue sets up Havok and Polaris' return to X-Factor, and I did enjoy that. Psylocke turned down Wolverine's offer. But that's not a shocker either.. And she also turns down Cylops' offer of X-Force..or is it X-Force? Anyways, I'll give this book a 4.5 out of 5. It was definitely needed, but the random tribal scenes kinda weren't, plus there were a few other random issues I personally wasn't too happy about. Sorry bout that.--Johnnybravo44 (talk) 03:20, October 20, 2011 (UTC)
