Wolverine and the X-Men - Hindsight, Part One & Two

Hindsight, Part One
A year after a mysterious explosion destroyed the Xavier Institute and broke up the weary X-Men, an embittered Wolverine has lost himself on the open road, haunted by the unexplained fate of the missing Professor X and Jean Grey. But his efforts to keep a low profile end when he's brought back into the crosshairs of the Mutant Registration Division (MRD) after rescuing a family from a fiery train derailment. When the family shows kindness to Wolverine, however, they're arrested by the MRD, character with haboring a fugitive mutant. Galvanized into action, Wolverine enlists the help of Beast and together they infiltrate the enemy's lair, successfully liberating not only the innocent family, but a dozen captured mutants as well. But Wolverine knows these kinds of problems won't be going away, and so he's left with one option: bring back the X-Men.

Hindsight, Part Two
As the Brotherhood stokes the fires of mutant hysteria, Sen. Kelly tries to gather support for his Mutant Registration Act. Meanwhile, Wolverine is finding it difficult to get the X-Men back together. Most of the team is still unaccounted for, and those that Wolverine can find refuse to join the new team. The disillusioned Rogue has even taken up with the Brotherhood. But when the Brotherhood plans to go after Sen. Kelly at a press conference, the conflicted Rogue must decide where her loyalties really lie.

This is the one-hour series premiere of the highly acclaimed series. Hindsight, Part Three.
