Fear. Hatred. Prejudice. For over a decade the X-Men have waged an enduring struggle to see their mentor's dream of peaceful coexistence come to fruition. And yet, despite how they have persevered over the many hurdles thrown at them, they have come no closer to accomplishing their goals then when they first started. With all the heartache, loss, and death. Is such a dream still worth fighting for?
