An OK story with very good art. I found it interesting that they chose to use Wolverine as the advocate for peace and going-back-to-the-roots, and Cyclops as the here-we-make-our-stand type of leader, instead of the other way around. However I haven't followed the X-Men titles for years so this may be in line with the current character development.

A remarkable, underrated, emotional, and heartbreaking story about the apparent end of a decades long friendship and a parting of the ways between the two men who perhaps embody the X Men the most. This is worth having in your collection.

The breaking point of the X-Men comes here, and strangely enough, Wolverine is the voice of reason. Over several years, Cyclops has become an increasingly militant, dictatorial character at Marvel, something of a cultist zealot in the decisions he's made and the leadership role he has taken among mutants. The story here sets up the shattering of that role, as during a crisis, Wolverine takes a stand based on principle instead of following blindly the orders of a man who has clearly lost his integrity. Jason Aaron has a good sense of characterization and history, and he's backed up in each issue with different artists who nonetheless capture the story well as it unfolds. One glaring issue: in an early sequence set in Switzerland, the security team, which should be Swiss, talk an awful lot like Americans.
