So that's all Messiah Complex did? Trade one joyless X-Men status quo (a dwindling mutant population forcing all X-Men to live at Xavier Mansion as though it were a reservation) for another? Now all the mutants go their separate ways, with none of them happy. This book tries to tease where all the characters are headed, but most of them don't do a good job setting up their characters, since they are mostly 4-6 page stories with lots of internal monologues.

I do one of three things when I'm finished with a book. 1: If it's a great book, add it to my library, keep it so I can re-read it again. 2: If it's an ok or below average book that I probably won't read again, I sell it or give it away. 3: If it's awful, I'll throw it in the rubbish or chuck it in the fire.

This book definitely falls into the third catagory. Some books like this one, I consider a public service to destroy them so no one else makes the same mistake of reading this drivel. There i

As a bookend to the recent mutant cross-over saga Messiah Complex, this brief volume collects the two-issue Divided We Stand epilogue, which contains just under a dozen short narratives about different players in the X-Men universe after the devastation of Messiah Complex. (Those who know me are well aware that I generally despise these things nowadays; with the except of almost anything penned by Mark Millar and Brian Michael Bendis, like their Civil War and Secret Invasion epics.) Although a f ...more

Was really disappointed by this. The two double-sized issues included here (X-Men: Divided We Stand #1-2) are anthology stories about how the "end" of the X-Men has affected various mutants. It's not a bad concept - an aftermath to the disaster, but only half of it seems to have any form of relevance to Messiah Complex.

All the stories share a common theme: life sucks. I get that. I can see how that's a valid theme after the events of Messiah Complex, but it doesn't really make for interesting s
Ghastly, fucking tedious collection of short stories featuring X-Men nobodies from the back catalogue of X-universe, people that make you go, "Who?" or at best, "Oh yeah". Seriously, who gives a fuck if Cannonball starts a fight in a bar? If Hellion vents in a cafe? Jesus, I could shit better stories than this. Awful epilogues to a ridiculous storyline which will only get worse. Nuke it from space. That's the only way to be sure.

A great selection of short stories, most of which are very well written. Nothing essential or Earth-shaking -- all easily skipped -- but well written? Absolutely.
Short stories.
Cannonball's angry, and can fight. 2 stars
Nehzno returns to Wakanda with Storm. Great art and a good origin. 4 stars.
Anole likes being back home, Talk with Northstar. 3 stars.
Hellion needs guidance. 3 stars.
Scalphunter, Nightcrawler. 5 stars.

Beast sifts thru the wreckage. 1 star.
Magik. X-Infernus prologue. 3 stars.
Havok. Emperor Vulcan epilogue. 3 stars.
Forge. 2 stars.
Surge and Moonstar in a story thats preachy and sounds like its written by Claremont. 2 stars.

this showed up in the mail by mistake and I was happy with it since it turned out to be better than the book I actually ordered. Skottie Young rocked his part in this.

Just a collection of short stories that don't seem to have any real bearing on the overall story being told. These stories follow up on some of the lesser characters in the X-Titles right now, I guess telling why we won't be seeing most of them in the upcoming collections. If you're following the current X-Men stories and skip this collection, I don't think that you'll be missing a thing.

After reading this for the second time I still find it quite disappointing. This volume tells the stories of different mutants and what they do now that Scott has disbanded the X-men. Unfortunately I can't bring myself to feel with the various characters (Hank McCoy is the only exception, that story was quite okay).

Kind of mediocre stories with nice art. The stories aren't very long, so Marvel bulks out the collection with indexes detailing several x-related characters.

Some of the character portraits are nice, particularly for fans of the New X-Men, but there's nothing of substance here.

"How he got started in comics: In 1983, when Fraction was 7 years old and growing up in Kansas City, Mo., he became fascinated by the U.S. invasion of Grenada and created his own newspaper to explain the event. "I've always been story-driven, telling stories with pictures and words," he said.

Education and first job: Fraction never graduated from college. He stopped half a semester short of an art
