Been looking around for this on the past posts, and I don't see it, so I will post it to talk about.
CraveOnline has the info on the major summer event for 2011 for Marvel's merry mutants.

From the article:

The previously announced X-Men Prelude miniseries written by Paul Jenkins will be renamed X-Men: Prelude to Schism and kick off the event in May, with four issues drawn by different artists that each follow one of the four most influential members of the team, Professor X, Cyclops, Wolverine and Magneto. Robert De La Torre will draw the first issue, with Laurence Campbell coming on for the second issue.

Looks like we will be getting 2 teams again, with different leaders, and Xavier and Magneto on opposite sides again.

"I can't fathom why anyone would bother to listen to Xavier or Magneto anymore"

From the way it's being hinted in that marketing piece, it's not going to be between those two, but between Cyclops and Wolverine.

The way I've read it is that Wolverine will be siding with Magneto in a stance against the other two, with Magneto being the Mastermind of sorts and Wolverine being the Leader.

Either way, that makes even less sense. Wolverine is clearly not qualified to lead anything more sophisticated than a snackbar and is not exactly equipped to be any sort of moral compass for the X-Men either.
He's the best at what he does, but what he does is going snikt snikt on whatever guy the rest of the X-Men are pointing at at any given moment, so someone should realize that siding with the amnesiac killing machine and the supervillain that flip-flops more than Two-Face's favourite coin is a monumentally stupid idea.

Wolverine's currently going morally off the rails in UXF. That probably has something to do with it.

And in Children's Crusade, too.

Wolverine's protogee's do have a tendency to survive though. Both Kitty and Jubilee have been known as "The Last X-man" in separate dystopian alternate futures.

Wolverine siding with Magneto?

I'm really glad I'm not reading X-Men anymore.

because we're watching Cyke be an ass while all of Xavier's assholness is retconned in stuff that doesn't make sense. And Magneto is for people who don't like their philosophy.
