Heroes fighting villains? That's a new concept, Marvel. Hope it works.

Posted by Squalleon

Wow, this looks worse than I expected :-P

Rogue's alive again?

Posted by bladewolf

I actually had no interest in this event, but it's starting to grow on me. Maybe it's because Red Skull is the villain I despise most (as in, if he was actually real I'd hate him the most as a person)

I think time travel is fixing her.

I just don't care about any of Remender's current Marvel stuff, it all seems really pretentious

not to sound like a$$ but really your surprise by this?

Posted by MixMastaMicah5

This event sounds awesome. Love Remender and the concepts sound cool.

Posted by TheManInTheShoe

Another event, huh?

Edited by Cloudguy

Yay another cross-over....with the exact same concept as all the other ones...this will be different.

Good guys fight normal villains which become more powerful for the cross-over then lose the power at the end.

"Time for the villains to step forward and cause major problems!", who'd a thunk it? The villains actually acting villainous! What's next, the heroes fighting each other? Those guys at Marvel really pulling all the strings at the moment.

Remender's always got his weird ideas that just somehow work and entertain. Definitively checking this out.

The wonders of time travel :)

Edited by RoastedRay

All you people would ever say was that you were tired of hero vs hero and that villains needed to make a big comeback. So they gave it to you and now you won't stop complaining about that.

Posted by Farkam

Magneto vs. Red Skull should be interesting.

lol

Edited by tximinoman

Rick Remender writing it and (for once) heroes fighting villains.

Posted by longbowhunter

As much as I'm currently enjoying Uncanny Avengers, I'm really not looking forward to seeing Red Skull and the S-Men again.

Posted by Hassun

I really hoped Remender had given up on the terrible Red Skull Onslaught story.

Seeing this fills me with great disappointment and sadness.

Posted by MrMazz

Whats with Hobgoblin replacing the Green Goblin ?

Edited by UlquiorraSchiffer

Oh yeah can't wait for Forever Evil! Wait, didn't that just end? Oh... so this isn't the same thing? It's Marvel's turn you say? Are you sure? Huh... what a coincidence.

Posted by iaconpoint

Sure hope Thor is spared this crossover since it's the only marvelnow! book I read because of their endless crossovers.

Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude

Yeah pretty much this...

They go back in time before their deaths to stop what happened. Guess it worked. BTW, scarlet Witch is alive as well :P

Posted by leokearon

Could be interesting though Marvel need to slow down with the events.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

Actually pretty excited for this event.

Posted by obsidian_raindrop1

Heroes fighting villains, I don't know if this is going to work.

Posted by Maddpanda531

I, for one, am definitely looking forward to this.

Posted by kilowog52

So that's why Red Skull is dressed like Onslaught in the pic. But is that Norman Osborn on the left (once you flip the picture upside-down so that the villains are right-side-up) , with the Goblin ears, but no other face covering? That's weird. At first I thought that was Super-Skrull, but once I got a better look, it does look an awful lot like Osborn. It also looks like he's wearing Captain America's shirt with something else over it. And I assume that's Carnage on the other side. But who is that between Loki and Red Skull?

@kilowog52: Sabertooth


Pretty pumped for this; good old fashioned villians doing evil things

It was supposed to be Green Goblin, but they changed it to Hobgoblin at the last minute and recolored it.

Ick.

ok, this made me laugh :p. And Remender is writing it yay :D

Posted by AmazingWebHead

Loki's evil again? And is that Sin or Onslaught in the front?

Heroes fighting villains? That's a new concept, Marvel. Hope it works.

Given how long it's been heroes fighting heroes, yes. Yes it is.

Posted by BrotherEye

@roastedray: yeah, I agree with you. Fans complain when heroes fight villains, they complain when heroes fight heroes. Marvel just can't win with some fans. I'm looking forward to this event. I like Remenders stuff, he's abut too liberal on killing characters and stuff but is a good writer.

Posted by Rubear

Perhaps because Green Goblin is Goblin no more?)

a dc fanboy talking sh*t. also a new concept.

Edited by TheBlackHood

The only problem I have with this is that for an Avengers/X-men team up it seems really really light on actual X-men characters. Of the characters in the picture, only Storm is an X-man. I am glad that they are including Magneto in the crossover, though I am guessing his involvement will likely be on the outskirts when he should really be front and center. I do think this will be a good event, but I really hope Magneto gets to put down Red Skull's Nazi ass as he deserves the kill.

Edited by RedLantern23

Glad all of my Marvel pull list isnt involved in this bs

Edited by GraniteSoldier

@xwraith: She's been alive in the all female X-Men team since it's start, unless she died after like issue 5 which is when I dropped it.

I like Remender work but after Forever Evil and Age of Ultron I'm still burnt out on events.

Posted by Xwraith

@granitesoldier: I dropped it after issue four, but I do know she was removed from the team after her death (and not brought back).

As for Remender, I love Uncanny X-Force, but I've heard his Marvel stuff since then hasn't been so good.

Posted by GraniteSoldier
Posted by Xwraith

@granitesoldier: There was an issue in Uncanny Avengers (number 14 if I remember right) where her and Scarlet Witch both died.

Then they did a time travel story and they're not dead anymore.
