APNewsBreak: X-Men poised to return to Marvel

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Uncanny X-Men are coming back to the world of Marvel Comics, but the fabled team of mutants won't be anything like its former self.

Marvel said Thursday that it will return a reformed and reconstituted lineup of mutants in a pair of new series — "Wolverine & The X-Men" and "Uncanny X-Men" — that aims not to replace the soon-to-end current series, but build on its demise and the fallout from the five-issue mini-series "X-Men: Schism" that goes on sale next month.

The end, says Marvel editor in chief Axel Alonso, will also be a beginning and set the stage for even greater tumult facing both X-Men squads in 2012 in an event the company is calling "X-Men Regenesis."
