Wolverine and the X-Men #1

Wolverine's overexpusure reaches a new low in "Wolverine and the X-Men", one of the titles spinning off of "Regenesis", the event that split the team in two.  This book is the most evident lack of creativity in the X-Men side of the Marvel house:  not only we are going back to the "Gold" and "Blue" concept, but also looking carefully at this issue, readers will see how this horse has already been beaten before.  I'd like to refer you to Uncanny X-Men #353, an issue pencilled by Chris Bachalo in which an inspector from the Department of Education -or something to that effect- is paying a visit to review code compliance at the school, much to Wolverine's consternation.  It turns out that everything is a hot mess at the mansion and the visit is a total disaster.  Cut to "Wolverine and the X-Men" #1 and you will be reading the same story all over again; but hey... Wolverine is in it!
