Alejandro Bruzzese relaunches YEAR X

Alejandro says: Thrill-seeker Trevor Fitzroy's natural ability to step in and out of the time stream has both given him unique perspective and the opportunity to exploit his knowledge of history for personal gain. His story begins in 2104, as he uses his abilities and influence to gain a spot in the X-Men, which have long surpassed the Avengers as the world's most effective and respected protectors from extraordinary threats. He soon finds out that, in reality, the X-Men have become a corrupt militaristic political movement whose representatives govern most of the Americas.

Upon this discovery Fitzroy immediately realizes when things went wrong: The day, nearly a century before, when Cyclops and Wolverine decided to split the X-Men into factions. Fitzroy decides that, even though he's never taken a life, he must travel to 2012 to assassinate Cyclops in order to ensure that the X-Men remain a force for good.
