For a while, the children of fallen heroes started to work in the shadows as the new X-Men. Not all that long ago, the latest incarnation of the X-Men was brought down in flames by Division's efforts. Team members captured, Agents killed, Cosmic fire everywhere... It seems as though the days of the X-Men have come and gone once again. Or have they?

PLOT OF GOTA: RTR
LAST REVISED MARCH 2014
In 2015 the war between humans and mutants became a self-fulfilling prophecy that lasted for thirteen years. It was brutal and bloody and there isn't a mutant or human alive who wasn't directly impacted by it. They now call it World War Three.
People will try to tell you that humans won the war, especially the ones writing the history books. But it doesn't take a genius to know those people are wrong, all you have to do is watch the news. Anyone outside of the 1% is well aware of the glowing dystopia the world has been thrust into. The middle class is virtually gone, there are areas of the world still uninhabitable even now and a good deal of the world's resources being directed towards the major cities and doled out to those who control the ebb and flow of money. When you add in factors like Division International, the Mutant Registration Act and the Mutant Control and Enforcement Agency, well there just doesn't seem to be a whole lot to be hopeful about these days. Especially after M-Day.
Most of yesterday's heroes fell in the battle, leaving behind their legacy with no-one to fill the void they left behind. War changed the course of the world's history and threw off the balance the world had before. No more Avengers, no more SHIELD, no more X-Men. Even the Brotherhood has fallen, leaving the mutants of America with the option of either registering themselves and spending the rest of their lives cataloged and tracked or spend their lives on the run until they either die - or get caught by the MCEA. Penalties for non-compliance vary on a mutant to mutant basis, but compared to some of the less mutant-tolerant countries five years in a mutant prison is a cake walk.
The last few years there's been a rumor that the X-Men might not be quite as gone as the government would have everyone believe. Less matching jumpsuits more vigilante-folk-hero types hiding in plain sight and playing things on the down-low. Not everyone believes but an underground movement has opted to spread the hope to fellow mutants living under the boot of the law by spreading X-Men based graffiti across the nation. Their desire for a change, for equality... well, that little spark of hope could start a fire
Mutants are required by law to register themselves.
