omg i love you frank cho

and not just for the abundance of sexy i actualy love how he draws female Bodys like look at the witches legs they are realisticly muscular and semi thick but not unattractivly so. he finds that perfect balance. and he rarely makes Anatomy mistakes and unrealism like starfires spine in that pic of starfire drawn by Kennith Rockafort

Gotta say I'm glad to see MODOK's in it! I always thought he was an awesome character.

Well I'll miss it. I'll miss the hell out of it.

I'm in love with Frank Cho's art.

@movieartman: That doesn't have to be unrealism, Starfire is an alien, it could be how she is.

My first proper marvel event :) I've only read a trade of civil war and i read schism but i don't really count that... All the pump

Posted by The Stegman

don't know about M.O.D.O.K but my guess is Wanda's gonna try and undue the destruction of the mutant race by bringing back the mutant's powers using Hope as a catalyst, which will also coincidentally lead to the return of the Phoenix Force/Jean Grey

Posted by Outside_85

Have a feeling that MODOK vs SW is just an opener to get things going, not really related to the event.


Well her species are more related to cats than they are to monkeys.

Posted by ARMIV2

Frank Cho? Nice!

And that's what M.O.D.O.K is looking like now, eh? Neat-o.

Posted by Ganthetsward20

wouldn't it be crazy if SW and MODOK were secret lovers??!?! O.o as well as sorta gross

Edited by Gordo789

Is Frank Cho drawing this whole event? If so, my interest is piqued.


I see that he is clearly not. Interest un-piqued.

Edited by AgeofHurricane

And Modok is somewhat relevant to this event, how exactly ?

Posted by Technicolorville


Yeah that's kind of gross. I read "Avengers: Children's Crusade" and thought that Dr. Doom and Scarlet Witch made a decent couple. I'm a big fan of Dr. Doom, Scarlet Witch, and Magneto, which is why I read the series, which was mediocre. Too bad that Dr. Doom has an ego and is too power hungry the relationship was interesting but didn't work out.

Posted by MyraMyraMyra

Anyone else think that Scarlet Withc is in desperate need of a costume update? Her current look is so dated.

I'm still on the fence about whether I'm mildly interested in this crossover event, or just fantastically bored by the mere thought of it. So far, this first look isn't really increasing my excitement. The art is pretty, though.

Posted by KidSupreme

They should just call it (AVENGERS WINS AGAINST X-MEN) ... Come on we all know the AVENGERS would win hands down!

@Morgaine_de_Bourbon: Who does not love Frank Cho's work ... The dude is amazing! LoL :D

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@KidSupreme: They shouldn't win because the X-Men are a lot more powerful with mind readers and omega level mutants...but the Avengers will win because Marvel wants to promote the movie.

Posted by Decept-O

I know this is getting some hate already but I am enjoying the art I've seen thus far. No guarantee the story will be any good but I don't know, doesn't seem like a bad thing to me. Could be fun.

I don't want to care, I don't want to care, I don't want to care.....GAH!

,,,,,,looking forward to it....kinda....maybe....hmm

Frank Cho's art looks awesome. I wonder what else he's done. Never really see him in anything

Posted by punkpuppy3

I thought Dr. Doom took her powers? I am really confused

Looking good.

@punkpuppy3: that changed in the latest comic she got them back from doom

Posted by zabrewolf

wanda is back <3

and yes, she need a new costume.

Posted by zackattack529

so this is a preview to avengers vs xmen and yet i see two characters i really dont like fighting it out with no dialouge. *sigh. why do i bother trying to get into marvel stuff.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Marvel would have to pay me $1,000 to be barely interested, and another $2,000 to even look at the comic. YAWN!

Posted by Miss_Garrick

@The Stegman: That sound like Marvel. Have a story arc they declare will change everything and be world shattering, THEN press a big undo button 5 minutes later.

Posted by Abattoir_Noises

Frank Cho? Scarlet Witch vs. M.O.D.O.K. to start things off? I'm in.

Posted by Solarflare32

The two teams will unite against a threat hoping to use the pheonix force for their own ends such as mr sinister i'm betting

LOL i was wondering the same thing. Completely random villain.. well unless if they find a way to fit him in. lol

I do really love the artwork.

"Crab people, crab people...they taste like crab but they look like people!" (That's all I could think about when I saw the second page)

Posted by zabrewolf

Now my toughts:

- rachel summers is the new host for the phoenix force, more powerful than ever

- wanda use her powers to bring back jean grey(with the phoenix force)

- jean fight against rachel in tne most incredible marvel fight

- a lot of avengers and xmen die

- finally, jean grey is back with wanda as the host for the fenix force

Posted by Teerack

I wonder what MODOK is up to.

Posted by sora_thekey

Not a fan of Frank Cho's art but then again I would take Cho over John Romita Jr.'s art any day!

Which means that I should enjoy the art on issue zero because throughout the rest of the AvX series I'm going to complain continuously about it.

Posted by WizardShazam

Scarlet Witch and MODOK in the same scene, drawn by Frank Cho? Alright, Marvel, you have some of my attention.

Posted by KidSupreme

@Cafeterialoca: WRONG!

Posted by Danial79

How can one comic be written by 5 people? Is it going to have 5 different segments?

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@KidSupreme: Please, if the Avengers spent less time eating and more time saving the world, then they could credibly beat the X-Men.

But now? They got the movie bias and the "Cyclops is 'evil'" bias so they're going to win even though they aren't the strongest.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

MODOK on big gangly robotic legs facing down one who summons hex magics. Amazing.

Edited by sparty-dbq

I don't get why or how this is issue "zero." Just call it issue 1. It's almost as bad as this point-one crap.

@Danial79 said:

No, what happens is when you buy the book there will be a button on the cover that activates a recording of all 5 people reading in a united monotone :p

Posted by KidSupreme

@Cafeterialoca: WRONG! Again ... Two words... Luke Cage! That's all it take to beat the X-men. I don't even need to explain myself, that alone is explanation enough.

That's impressive tech :)

Edited by lorex

There has been alot of speculation reguarding the Phoenix Force in this upcoming event. What iIf MODOK will becoms host of the Phoenix and hot Hope, Jean, Scarlet Witch or any of the others that have been speculated about. Also the art work does look good.

Posted by maverickhunter41

hmm.. would love to be hugged by scarlet witch.. hehe. :P

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@KidSupreme: ...Luke Cage? Against the Collosus with Juggernaut powers? I'm sorry, but being a brick won't get you too far. He loses almost ever fight he's in.
