It's getting closer. We've been seeing a lot of teasers and preview pages for the upcoming AVENGERS VS. X-MEN event. Regardless of the majority saying they're getting burnt out on crossovers, there is a bit of excitement going on over this. What makes me more interested is all the hype Marvel is putting into this. We know they have a lot of their top talent working on the miniseries and tie-ins. There must be something huge about all this. If they were just randomly hyping it up, I think that could be the final straw for many if it failed. I'm looking forward to it. We'll see how it goes.
