Exclusive: Avengers VS X-Men: Round 1 Teaser [Update]

The pairing ups continue and this time it's going to more than just Clobberin' Time.

We'be been seeing a lot of match ups for the upcoming AVENGERS VS X-MEN event beginning in April. Marvel has been release several teasers showing us the potential fights we will be seeing. The first batch of teasers we saw had Magneto vs. Iron Man and Psylocke vs. Black Widow. The next day we had Spider-Man vs. Iceman and Storm vs. Thor. Yesterday we saw Hulk vs. Emma Frost, Luke Cage vs. Beast as well as Ms. Marvel vs. Rogue.

Today Marvel has given us an exclusive look at one of today's teasers drawn by Dale Keown.

Colossus Vs. Thing. Benjamin J. Grimm is used to going toe to toe with the likes of Hulk but Colossus now possesses the power of the Juggernaut since becoming the avatar of Cyttorak. In other words, he's doing a lot more smashing these days. Hopefully Ben will be prepared and won't assume this is the regular old Colossus he's seen before.

== TEASER ==

Who would win this match up?

The biggest superhero brawl in the history of the Marvel Universe begins this April in Avengers Vs. X-Men #1!

There will be some more teasers released later today. Stay tuned.


Marvel has released more teasers for today.

Daredevil vs. Archangel? I'm a little confused. I thought Archangel was "gone" and now we just have Angel. Well, it should be interesting if this actually happens.

The other teaser released today features Spider-Woman vs. Gambit.

With the way these too can charm the pants off the opposite sex, what do you think are the chances they actually fight each other?

Chances are we'll be seeing more match ups tomorrow.

Colossus doesn't need Cytorak to beat Grim.

By the way, they did say Namor was to fight Thing? hmm...

has thing ever fought juggernaut? hulk a million times and i bet colossus a few times but what about the original juggernaut?

Posted by cobra88king8

So the Thing gets 2 fights? Lucky

Hey there in Russia 

Posted by CapFanboy



Yay! I don't know whether to get it or not.

Posted by ShadowX

Yeah, I don't think half of these fights are going to happen, or at least not one on one fights. Most of these are just teasers for the sake of teasing I think.

X-Men vs FF....

Posted by Decept-O

Oh man, Dale Keown is only doing the cover? I would LOVE to see a complete issue by him. The "big gun" characters are really his forte' and if he drew The Thing and Colossus inside and out that would really sweeten the deal. Although J.R. JR. ain't no slouch either!

Colossus for the win... no battle here!! All Pete's gotta do is flick Ben in the head and he's a goner!!!

Posted by Fetts

Thing gets raped.

Posted by 1fearless1

Wow JIM CHEUNG's art work is AMAZINGLY beautiful, very similar to Dale Keown's hmmm...Now give us some Asian male superhero Jim! Oh NO! How disappointing, they go Romita the SUPER WORST artist to draw? He and George Perez should leave permanently! They both SUCK I don't know why they're still around.

What's the deal with Colossus? When did he intertwined with Juggernaut to look like this? Were they both FAGs? How did I miss that?

I sincerely hope these are just teasers to help promote the event and not the actual matches.

Posted by Arevish

@k4tzm4n: I agree...

Posted by pspin

Maybe Namor will fight Thor like he should. But this looks like a good fight

I really don't see how the avengers can beat the x-men, like the only thing the avengers have going for them is thor, or tanerus or whatever asgardian is on the team now.. and Im sure the combined might of the x-men could take em out

Posted by GothamRed

I hope the Thing wins, just so that people will complain and I'll be happy that the Thing one, EVERYBODY WINS!!!!!! I also wish more fights were revealed today, but what're you gonna do.

Colossus stomps

not fair

Posted by Or35ti

I thought Namor was supposed to fight the Thing... My money's on Colossus, a lot of these battles are severely unbalanced

Posted by LordRequiem

Hopefully Colossus will batter thing. Ben Grimm's a royal loser.

Pretty cool cover

anyone seen this?

Posted by Rasarima

the thing should win.......the character is in need of this kind of victory to get up with his fans

Posted by BatClaw89

Marvel is desperate 

Posted by Mutant God

maybe Namor is Fighting Wolverine or Hope vs Franklin that would be something

Posted by Tempest55

This match up is so boring...

Hey! Another fail matchup. Man, these guys suck at making matchups.

How is Archangel is even... Never mind, Marvel's just making worthless pictures now. There's also a Spider-Woman vs. Gambit one that's popped up.

Bah. I sincerely hope they are. Maybe this way the event flops.

i must be constipated...cause i just can't seem to give a sh*t

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

This is becoming more and more cliche by the minute with each little reveal given.

Posted by rouder

@Or35ti: He is. Namor vs The Thing by Kathryn &Stuart Immonen is the second fight in the first issue of AvX: Versus title. These are just teasers for the main mini.

Posted by Bestostero

Based on the previews, i think the X-Men are edging the Avengers out... Storm and Thor is the only one that I find in Avengers favor so far. looking forward to this lol

So uh, when is this comic series coming out?

Posted by TheWitchingHour

Man I really hope they don't short sell Colossusnaught. He seems to have been getting the shaft ever since Fear Itself. On the other hand this could be a great showing for Ben Grimm. I always wanted him to be moved up a peg or two.

Posted by Atari_Graphics

I thought Ben was on the FF? I didn't read Fear Itself. X-Men don't have anybody for Hulk and Thor except maybe Namor on his best day and even then it would be tough to call.

Posted by Thor's hammmer

Colssus would be a possibility to beat ben without cyttorak's powers.

Posted by HellionVulcan

Colossus now should one shot Ben to deaths door step i got a feeling he'll fight as normal colossus instead of Juggernauting up .

Posted by Teerack

Why the hell are they in Russia lol 
Why the hell isn't the red hulk matched with colossus o.o 
Thank god Thor is alive for this, i hated his absence in civil war.

Posted by G-Man

The other two from today have been added to the original post. Now time to start debating over them.

Posted by Backflip

Spiderwoman should take Gambit, and Archangel should slaughter Daredevil.. But again, what is up with continuity in these teasers?

Edited by Mutant God

so is every fight gonna be in a different city?
