Read full description of the books X-Men: Schism:This review was revisited after reading Fear Itself: Avengers Academy.
What’s more entertaining than a tween Hellfire Club?
Well, lots, but in this tale Jason Aaron makes the most of it. After reading Aaron’s lackluster (I'm being kind) attempt at an Incredible Hulk storyline, this is a good one. The ruthless kiddies attempt to not only take out some mutants, but also make some big bucks at the same time. Enterprising little bastards, no? And it is this attempt that’s the lynch pin for the titled “schism”.
Cyclops and Wolverine have divergent opinions on just how to use the younger X-men. Cyclops feels that the kids shouldn’t be coddled and if danger rears its head then they should be in the front lines. Wolverine, that old softie, believes that kids should have somewhat of a kid’s life, even if they are mutants who wield destructive powers.
Rant: Now hold your horses and for the love of Stan Lee, didn't I just read this plot trope in Fear Itself: Avengers Academy? Why, yes, Jeff, you sure did. What's the point of having a tired theme, if you can't just re-use it over and over again? It's like corn, no matter what you do with it (canned, on the cob, crushed), it still comes out looking the same. End rant.
Despite the fact that there’s a huge Sentinel about 50 feet away from Utopia Island, it’s the mention (in anger, of course) of Jean Grey that pushes the boys to have a go at each other.
Suckers! You're in the Marvel universe. Jean's not dead, she's just resting.
Ultimately, the X-men are forced to take sides and split into opposing camps. A decent and familiar (and breeding contempt) X-men story capably illustrated by Carlos Pacheco.
Read information about the authorJason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama. His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi-autobiographical novel The Short-Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron. Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase books from spinner racks, some of which he still owns today.
Aaron's career in comics began in 2001 when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight-page Wolverine back-up story script. The story, which was published in Wolverine #175 (June 2002), gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors.
In 2006, Aaron made a blind submission to DC/Vertigo, who published his first major work, the Vietnam War story The Other Side which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Miniseries, and which Aaron regards as the "second time" he broke into the industry.
Following this, Vertigo asked him to pitch other ideas, which led to the series Scalped, a creator-owned series set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation and published by DC/Vertigo.
In 2007, Aaron wrote Ripclaw: Pilot Season for Top Cow Productions. Later that year, Marvel editor Axel Alonso, who was impressed by The Other Side and Scalped, hired Aaron to write issues of Wolverine, Black Panther and eventually, an extended run on Ghost Rider that began in April 2008. His continued work on Black Panther also included a tie-in to the company-wide crossover storyline along with a "Secret Invasion" with David Lapham in 2009.
In January 2008, he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped. Later that July, he wrote the Penguin issue of The Joker's Asylum.
After a 4-issue stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine: Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Aaron commented, "With Wolverine: Weapon X we'll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre," In 2010, the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine. He followed this with his current run on Thor: God of Thunder.
