The X-Men event of the decade starts here! It’s never been a more dangerous time to be a mutant. Even with their numbers at a record low, the world refuses to trust mutantkind…and after a mutant-triggered international incident, anti-mutant hatred hits new heights. Of course it’s at this moment, when the mutant race needs most to stand together, that a split begins that will tear apart the very foundation of the X-Men. From superstar writer and Marvel Architect Jason Aaron and a full roster of comics’ top artists, this is an X-tale that will reverberate for years to come! Come October, the X-Men landscape will be irreparably changed.

Neither X-Men nor Schism appeals to me. I'll keep UXF and UXF: Fear Itself on my pull list though. I just hope that Psylocke gets that wack hairdo fixed.

I'm interested in Schism, although I think Psylocke won't play a big part in it (but I hope she will, of course). Yost's arc in X-Men looks interesting as well (he should be the regular writer in X-Men instead of Gischler).

UXF looks OUTSTANDING! Too bad the solicit spoiled the secret regarding the risk involving Archangel in the Dark Angel Saga arc, but the premise is still great, and it looks like a very threatening fight in two fronts. The Fear Itself tie-in doesn't make me too excited, however, since Remender is not writing it and big event tie-ins are usually either bad or insignificant (or sometimes both).

@whitephoenix - I think that's not her hairdo, it's just the wind/explosion effect lifting her hair a little bit. Like, one second later it would probably be straight again.

of course it´s not her hairdo...can´t u see or "feel" movement in 2D or what?

They have said Schism is heavily wolverine/cyclops so everyone else will likely fall in line.
