This morning, Marvel Comics announced that the X-Men franchise will experience a "regenesis" (not a
The Spring of 2011 is going to be an especially eventful one for Marvel Comics fans, particularly those fond of writers Matt Fraction and Kieron Gillen and their work with the X-Men and Thor franchises.
