"X-Men: Schism" is a 2011 crossover comic book storyline published by Marvel Comics featuring the X-Men, consisting of a five-issue miniseries written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Carlos Pacheco (issue #1), Frank Cho (issue #2), Daniel Acuña (issue #3), Alan Davis (issue #4) and Adam Kubert (issue #5).
The storyline was preceded by a four-issue prologue miniseries by writer Paul Jenkins and artists Roberto De La Torre (issue #1), Andrea Mutti (issue #2), Will Conrad (issue #3) and Clay Mann (issue #4), and two tie-in issues of the Generation Hope comic book, written by Kieron Gillen and illustrated by Tim Seeley. A one-shot comic book, "X-Men: Regenesis", written by Gillen and illustrated by Billy Tan, served as an epilogue to the storyline.
"Schism" was first announced by senior editor Nick Lowe at a press call on March 4, 2011. The event deals with a series of strong disagreements between Cyclops and Wolverine over decisions taken throughout the storyline, leading to a schism between the X-Men. "Schism" brought big repercussions towards the X-Men franchise, including the end (and later relaunching) of long-running Uncanny X-Men comic book and a "definite split" among the X-Men, leading to a new status quo presented in the X-Men: Regenesis storyline, which establishes both sides of the schism.
