Looks great. It may be wrong, but I'm rooting for Colossus.

@TheCheeseStabber: Your right. Issue looks good.

when did it become a year long event? i thought it only lasted six months?!?!?! why are they "Call of Duty-ing" a useless story by extending it?!?!?!

#7 Posted by Pwok21 (2249 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks good. Colossus laying the smackdown on Thor? Yes Please!

I do like the fact that it tells you current situation for both teams e.g. who's injured, captured or has left that roster.

I hate to say this...but it looks like Phoenix Colossus is raping Spiderman......erm maybe the crazed state of the phoenix pulled some Ultimate Colossus in and drove him mad.....

I still don't like this story...

#10 Posted by HackedLife (6 posts) - - Show Bio

Isn't this the first appearance of Archangel since his "re-boot"? Did we know he could still do that? Also, he (and Rachel and Bobby) went back to Wolverine's school and told Kitty he was done fighting in the most recent Wolverine and the X-MEN. I guess this AVX takes place before that?

I read it.. it was pretty good. spiderman saves the day.. kinda

idk I think people are too hard on avx its actually not that bad

@HackedLife: Archangel or Angel?

#22 Posted by Cap10nate (2160 posts) - - Show Bio

I thought this was a fantastic issue. The character interactions were great and this story is really coming on strong. I was disappointed with the first arc but it has turned into a really good read. I am looking forward to the rest of the story.

Screw this series to bloody hell.

@Babs: I just have not seen Archangel since Warren died/resurrected and thought he was gone. Maybe I missed something.

Thor is getting jobbed throughout this entire crossover.

I don't care what anyone says i like it , cause it means at the end of this thing cyclops is gonna lose come to his senses and his gonna realize what he's done and he's gonna get fired from being the mutant race's "leader", HA! ..........i...i don't like him.

also the mutant race or utopia should be a democracy not a cyclosiship

That's how i felt, but looking at what happened with Spiderman, i can't take the character-wanking anymore. It's inane.

WAIT, one minute! What's with Archangel on the cover? Didn't Warren get a big mind wipe and doesn't have blue skin anymore?!?

Oh. Right. This is Marvel, why am I suprised at more inconsistency?

#39 Posted by Mrfuzzynutz (990 posts) - - Show Bio

this would read a lot better as a trade, this isn't one of those, "Oh boy I can't wait" kind of books sadly..but read them in one shot it isn't bad at all

this is almost like a movie tanking in the box-office only to find new life in rentals and international markets lol

@ThanosIsMad:

As he should. There is no way he can go against the power of the Phoenix. Lets be real now LOL

#41 Posted by broo1232 (1520 posts) - - Show Bio

It's better than Fear Itself but it's being stretched to much six months?

#42 Posted by The Incredible Huck (156 posts) - - Show Bio

...and Thor gets his ass kicked once again. Goddamnit I hate this series. Dont the Avengers have any other heavy hitters that the writers can use to show the all powerful might of the Pheonix against? They've been shitting on Thor this entire series.
