CBR Review: X-Men: Schism #5

I recently reviewed X-Men: Schism #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "X-Men: Schism was both about the end point and not. The entire premise of the story was the end point of Cyclops and Wolverine each leading two separate groups of X-Men. That was the selling point, so it’s no surprise how this issue ends and that it leads into two dueling X-books: the relaunched Uncanny X-Men and the new Wolverine and the X-Men. Since the conclusion of Schism was known before the first issue shipped, what was the point? What was left for this finale except to pull the trigger on the eponymous schism everyone knew was coming? Like so many things, it’s not the ‘what’ that matters, it’s the ‘how.’ That’s where X-Men: Schism #5 stumbles."
