Unscripted Lite: AVENGERS VS X-MEN #0
Hmmmmm......yeah you guys are spot on about issue #0. It doesn't set the stage at all or get you excited about this event. I too was hoping this would shed some light on Wanda's role in this story. "Sigh"....fooled again.
I think a better "issue #0" would include a fine tuned X-Sanction storyline for the Hope side and the other half would introduce/set the stage for Wanda's role in the story. A double sized single issue, maybe a 4 part series, either way it would make for a better quality book and "trailer".
My problem with this "Event" is that what they're selling (Avengers Fighting X-Men) isn't the story they're supposedly telling: the return of the Phoenix & it's impact on Hope, the Scarlet Witch and the future of Mutant kind.
I'm in it for the latter but with all the writers and characters involved, I fear that the fighting and allegiance fluff(?) will get in the way of the meat of the story. But we'll see.
AvsX #0 has assured me that I'll be on the sidelines this time. If they knock this out of the park, I'll get the trades.
I don't know if it was their fault, but ever since Disney bought Marvel, their overall plans have become crap. That isn't to say that there haven't been good self-contained books.
I just wish they would pull their act together. I guess they're getting their money either way.
