    Default Avengers Vs. X-Men

    Is anyone actually excited about this year's Marvel event?

    I don't know if I can think of an event I would want to read even less than the X-Men and Avengers acting like children with a fight then talk mentality (I'm assuming how that's how this will play out). The only upside I can think of is that this event won't affect all the Marvel titles.

    Here are the confirmed titles involved (copypasta from wikipedia):

    Prologue

    Marvel Point One (one-shot)
    Avengers: X-Sanction #1-4
    Avengers Vs. X-Men #0

    Core miniseries

    Avengers Vs. X-Men #1-12

    Tie-ins

    Avengers Vs. X-Men: Versus #1-6
    Avengers #25-30
    New Avengers #24-?
    Secret Avengers #26-?
    Uncanny X-Men #11-?
    Wolverine and the X-Men #9-?
    Avengers Academy #29-?
    X-Men: Legacy #266-?

    Not in the least, lately anything from Marvel with the Avengers in it has been a let down for me.And I agree, I don't get why they would fight, although the preview offers up some clues.

    But then again I guess I should be a little excited due to the build up having went into this atleast on the X-Men side.And I guess it has me anxious to see which side X-23 takes especially since she has joined Avengers Academy, kind of similar to which side Wolverine will take.

    Beast and Storm are two others that I can think of that have to choose sides

    In all honesty I will probably break down and buy the event's main series just so I can keep up with what's going on in Marvel. I'm already reading Avengers X-Sanction and Avengers Children's Crusade which I think are both pretty much leading up to AvX. I have room in my budget to add more to my pull list, so I might as well read AvX.

    I'll probably break down and buy it, and probably some of the more essential tie ins.

    And I hate that their making the X-Men to look the bad guys during the event.

    Scott Summers has completely lost it, which finally makes him a mildly interesting character.

    Well, who has been reading this?

    I gotta say it's not nearly as retarded as Fear Itself, but damn is this thing dragging on.

    Issue #4 spoiler


    The best thing about this event is that it's confined to Avenger and X-titles.

    I'm going to reserve judgment until the end since Fear Itself started off pretty good and went to shit real fast.

    After the last issue I was upset that I'd have to wait 3 weeks instead of 2 for the next one, so that's a sign that I'm at least liking it so far.

    I like the story so far, it just seems like it's taking a long time to get anything started. I'm more of a fan of condensed, fast-paced story telling.

    It's a 12-issue series, therefore it's going to go on for about 6 months. There will, of course, be fallout tie-ins afterwards as well.

    Guys after buying 12 issues of The Fearless, I will never buy another event aftermath tie-in series again. Goddamn that was the most pointless series ever.

    Yeah, I cancelled it about 4 issues in. Honestly most of the Fear Itself stuff I never even read, and I probably have 1/4 of a longbox with "Fear Itself" covers.

    Last night I pulled my boxes out and began the long task of organizing/alphabetizing my comics. I'm so far behind on some of them and I want to use the summer to catch up on them.

    I haven't read Iron Man or Iron Man 2.0 (Which was cancelled in Dec.) in almost a year, so I'm going to take those series up to my cottage with me this weekend for something to read while I'm not opening the place up for the summer or fishing.

    Yeah, Iron Man 2.0 was a pretty good series, but no one cares about war machine. it seems as though all his upgrades in the series didn't really transition into canon either, so there was no point to it.

    I liked #6 a lot. Issue #7 was ok. Everything is just moving so fucking slow.

    So far the series is ... OK. The Phoenix being split is kind of cool, but now it just feels like a rehash of Cable's perfect world from the beginning of the Cable/Deadpool series. I'm going to be mighty upset if it ends in a similar way.

    How did it end? What are the warning signs?

    I just don't want it to be a rehash of something that's already been done, I guess.

    Also, Cable died. Kind of. They brought him back but he lost half of his powers, eventually replaced them with technological things (a gravimetric field for his telekinesis, and a massive infonet for his telepathy)
