Oooh, Hope just burned Scarlet Witch.

Anyway, I love everyone's reaction to Stark's latest plan.

Because you are a jerk, Hope Summers.

Also, words cannot explain how exultant i am to see this 'event' come to an end.

Nice!

I love the angle on the first page, center panel. Very unique. I can only imagine what it took to draw that!

I did overlook the "Seventy-Two Hours Ago", which made the Wanda/Hope conversation strange, but now it all makes sense. ;) - too bad things don't go as planned... "Seventy-Two Hours from Now..."

As always, thanks for sharing! :D

I think Storm is the only character who has been written well throughout this entire event.

Finally!

Marvel's secret keeping tactics are great!

I can't read anything from the first half of that preview!

Haven't really been keen on AVX, anyone know what's happening to that "This is War" event that's meant to be starting next month, considering that's the month Marvel NOW! starts?

"Plus! Join the Marvel ReEvolution as Marvel brings fans a new comic reading experience! Every issue ofAvengers VS. X-Men comes packaged with a code for a FREE digital copy on the Marvel Comics app."

LOL, translation: "We are charging you extra and forcing you to buy a print copy AND a digital copy even if you don't want both. We could charge you $2.99 like DC does and make a combo pack that is $3.99 so it's optional, but, we don't want to. Oh, and if you buy your comics late then forget about using the digital promo code. They expire a couple of days after the comic goes on sale."

Posted by Lvenger

Oh come on Hope this situation is your fault as well. Scarlet Witch can't take all the blame. Hopefully AvX spells the end for Hope.

@htb106: it's a Punisher even in which Frank tries to kill the Avengers, gets arrested and ends up on the Thunderbolts

she wasn't written well.

* head bang on the wall *

Edited by SolthesunGod

@jhazzroucher: Compartively speaking she has. She hasn't been written like a David Koresh write off or a nympho.

Posted by x_29

God I hope Hope dies.

Edited by The_Grey_Queen

why is that the x-men always have to look like the bad guys, lose, be hated by humans, and have almost destroyed the world. please quote me on this.

Posted by hyenascar

hey look, I'm like everyone else one in here, I'm too good for this book, but i sit around and comment about how shitty it is. Remember no one is innocent and I like Hope. even though she is written very much like a whiny teen at times.

Posted by Tellumo

Why is Scarlet Witches' eye wonky in the second last panel?

Posted by pijuyo

Im really looking forward to this. I enjoyed this event a lot, but I think it's finally time it comes to an end.

Posted by warpgirl

Oh give me a break with the pouty lip. That's almost as bad as Power Girl's pouty lip when she explained why she just had a big hole over her boobs instead of "hero symbol". Where do artists come up with this crap?

Yep!

Posted by fodigg

The writing has been atrocious throughout this entire event. Even compared to other sub-par Marvel events.

Posted by Pwok21

"I call it 'Faith'."

...I call it the cop-out that everyone saw coming!

Posted by blur1528

The fisheye lens choice for that panel is very bold. I like it!

Posted by acomicbooklook

First off, this didn't need to be 12 issue's but at least it's over so we can get to the next thing. I mean, talk about talking forever to get through an Event. We talk about AvX in dept in this issue of A Comic Book Look and it's not pretty.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

At least we are getting to see some Hope and Scarlet Witch with this issue

Posted by JamDamage

I was so excited for this. It had so much potential. Then it just fell flat. I thought each issue was going to be fighting between certain characters, but instead we got this crap. The shitty part is that for 6 months I'm forced to read the garbage tie-ins. I don't want to read these stories anymore. I want to read my Avengers and X-Men books. Same thing happened with The Siege, and Fear Itself. I keep losing my books for almost half a year sometimes. It's crap.

A long time ago Cyclops said: "We are X-Men, being the loser is part of the way" (or something like that).

I think it was in that crossover with Alpha Flight where Loki was the main villain

Posted by JamDamage

@Lvenger: this all comes back to House of M. Actually before it. If Scarlet Witch let Dr. Strange teach her, none of this would have happened. You can't blame Hope for any of it. These are the situations that have surround her. What choices has she made?

Posted by Novemberx2

just heard marvel have announced a new event each marvel now book will have a banner for the next event due in may

Posted by ruler

i hope we will see catfight between scarlet witch and hope

LOL, seriously? That sounds like the lamest thing Cyclops has ever said.

An armor charmed by Hope and Scarlet Witch? lol

This series has proved to be much less boring than i expected!

There was an episode of House where a kid's eyes rolled around in his head. He had worms.

The Scarlet Witch has worms.

Posted by zackattack529

this event was Trash lol

i must admit, it was little bit better than Fear Itself, but at least Fear Itself was shorted..but it had way too many unnecessary tie-ins. But ya i give this event 3/5, only because i enjoyed the Uncanny X-men and the WatX tie ins.

yup..i was on the X-mens side...typical that they would portray them as the bad guys. *sigh Sometimes i wonder if the Marvel staff hold their meetings in a bar while watching sports games getting drunk, saying "Hey dudes, who would win in a fight Avengers or Xmen? mm good one dude, idk..you guys down to make an event of it?" ALL RIGHT!!" "now whos going to drive me home im hammered" -___-

Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan

I have enjoyed this event to be honest and issue 11 was the best issue so far. I am looking forward to it's conclusion.

Posted by HexThis

Hope, don't you dare!

Wanda ftw.

Posted by lykopis

This even has been like a deep sliver stuck in my palm...it broke into twelve pieces and FINALLY --- the last piece is being pulled out.

On with it.

Posted by divingfalcon713

If Hope actually thought this was Wanda's fault, then why is she still palling around with Wanda and the Avengers? Or is she just being a brat and looking for someone to blame now because stuff is actually getting crazy (what with Scott being Dark Phoenix now and the Xavier thing).

Edited by DATNIGGA

@Lvenger: how is this hopes fault? seriously what did she do?

everyone has been trying to capture her, they deflected the Phoenix from her & then they captured her & then she beats cyclops.. she has done nothing wrong the entire event. mean while wanda wipes almost all of her race due to a power up & a mental break down & had she have trained with dr strange this wouldnt have happened in the first place.

we talk about how bad cyclops is (even though he provoked through out this entire event)

we talk bad about hope (even though she did nothing wrong)

but... wanda is literally the entire problem but she gets a pass due to the fact that shes an avenger

@divingfalcon713: the way they write the younger x men makes no sense really.. when utopia was attacked the x men are determined to stop the avengers & get hope back.. but what are the young x men doing? playing games at avenger academy. younger hero's are often written with lack of direction & motive. one minute there solders the next there little kids. hope has the same problem one minute shes this war hardened solder raised by cable. the next.. shes a clueless kid who cant figure out which side to take or what to do.. smh the younger x men should be grown competent BY NOW at least

Posted by adrianjfm

I think Wanda should answer " don't go there girl!!" and snap her fingers, that would be awesome.

Sirusly, i like the event, its is not in the secret invasion or civil war level, but it's have been fun, I think the best wrotten is scott, everytime he talks he establish that all that he wants is to save the mutants, and that is what Xavier taught him; but sadly he is influenced by the phenix force and we all know what that bit...ch makes good people does.

It have been an unnecessary long way to here, but lets hope for a good ending.

Posted by Bestostero

this story has gotten so convoluted ill be glad when its over

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Looks good.

Posted by venomoushatred1001

Hope just burned Scarlet Witch... badly.

Posted by RedX9

If anything, Hope has the right to burn Scarlet Witch for what she's done. All of this is her fault with pushing mutants into desperation and putting Scott in the position he's in. ITS ALL HER FAULT and yet the Avengers forgive her and allow her to be on her team like she did nothing at all? B.S.!!

Posted by Tony_Shark

I'm one of those few people who actually like this event.
