AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #1 (JAN120625)
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, JASON AARON, MATT FRACTION, JONATHAN HICKMAN, ED BRUBAKER
Art by JOHN ROMITA JR.
Cover by JIM CHEUNG
FOC – 2/27/12, ON SALE – 4/3/12

For some reason, I can't get the idea of Captain America, Cyclops, Wolverine and Emma having some sort of singing contest out of my head. What I'm really curious is how this is all going to end and what it will mean for the different relationships between members.

They are probably fighting over the one set of restrooms that are rumored to exist at Marvel HQ.

cool cover.

#5 Posted by pspin (892 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think those teasers meant anything other than to get our attention. I can't wait for this, I hope Armor and Warpath get fights that would be cool, they are underrated

Why are beast and wolverine on the avengers side? I know that they're apart of the avengers, but they're x-men. I'm so confused...

So wovly/beast are going to have some kinda revelation half way though this series and rejoin the cy-men .

You Me and Phoenix

@sweetesttoaster: Schism split the mutants into two factions: Wolverine vs. Cyclops. I was curious if it would carryover into this event. Looks like it will.

A good cover should get people interested, and I'll say that I am.

I just hope that the book is nothing but illustrated combat, nothing I love more than superheroes duking it out.

they need to make up their mind with beast and wolverine.

I'm just curious. Is Angel going to have metal wings again? I'm just confused about him since the end of his storyline in X-Force.

#14 Posted by JMLG (135 posts) - - Show Bio

so Wolverine and Beast is with Avengers after all?!

and how Angel still got his metal wings? and how Thor alive? smh!

Probably because they will side with the avengers before they side with Cyclops again? I'm confused because there have been preview covers where wolverine is fighting Captain America. So what is the deal with that? lol

#16 Posted by Malonius (892 posts) - - Show Bio

The X-Men don't have any answer to Thor if he's not jobbing. Shouldn't Thor solo? The X-Men are going to have pull out Legion or X-man or Prof. X w/ Mind Gem to take him on.

#17 Edited by moywar700 (2775 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't understand, is wolverine with the X-Men or against?

It's strange for him to be with the avengers when his students are siding with the x-men(armor)

Insert some whiny comment about how this will be the worst event ever and Marvel are crap.

I'm looking forward to this anyway, but if these apparent match-ups are actually indicators as to who will fight each other in the book proper, I'm even more excited than before. These are far more interesting than the promo fights we were given (except for Magneto vs. Luke Cage, Iron Fist vs. Hope and Psylocke vs. Black Widow).

#23 Posted by NYStreets09e (159 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm guessing this series isn't going to be Canon because Angel wouldn't have metal wings and Thor wouldn't be alive

Angel has kept his metal wings since the conclusion of the dark angel saga.

ARMOR ! :D The only Young X-Man other than Pixie (annoying c*nt) to be having a role or at least, to be feaured in this event.

There's hope for them yet.

They'll realize their differences, brush the dust off, shake hands, and join together to become the X-Avengers, thus uniting every single marvel superhero into one massive team (pretty much like what they've been doing) and they will fight off all evil doers....TOGETHER!!!!!

I can't believe they are actually doing this, there isn't enough words to describe how wrong this is.

Why would Emma Frost side with "The Phoenix" (who will most probably end up being Jean Grey)? Sigh, she has been the victim of bad writing... again.

I bet you she won't show up at all. They just needed another X-Men there...and her powers make her recognizable. same reason Shadowcat isn't there. :P

Ha! This wins the prize for best comment yet. :D
 
I'm usually not one to poopoo something that hasn't been released yet (because unlike many other comic book critics, I understand that I am not clairvoyant) but this cover just has a little too much of the 90's for me. All it needs is gritty crosshatching and strategically placed smoke to cover their feet and I'll feel like a kid with terrible taste again.

I bet you she will, it was stated by Marvel that the Young X-Students would have a role to play in all this (which will be as cannon fodder or cheerer's but still.) Oddly enough, Kitty hasn't been in any of the teasers as of yet. Not sure what difference that would make.

THIS EVENT WILL BE EPIC!!!

& to all the people saying this will suck & cant understand certain things like why thor is alive or angel and certain aspects im gonna make this really clear for ya

UNLESS YOU READ THE INDIVIDUAL COMICS OF EVERYONE OF THESE CHARACTERS YOU WILL NEVER BE UP TO DATE ON THERE STATUS SMH THOR WAS DEAD HE GOT SWALLOWED BY THE DEMOGORGE AND NEXT COMIC HES FIGHTING HIS WAY BACK TO LIFE BUT YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW THAT UNLESS YOU READ THERE INDIVIDUAL COMICS

Marvel's events are usually a mix of everyones stories so unless you keep up with everyones stories you will never be able to properly follow the full story or understand why certain people are around or have different power sets

#44 Posted by HellionVulcan (3867 posts) - - Show Bio

If the x-men lose this comic will have suffered from bad writing colossus Magneto rogue & iceman would be enough to handle that roster of avengers .

#45 Posted by ThomasElliot (364 posts) - - Show Bio

Do you think that Captain America is yelling "Arrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggg" while Cylcops is yelling "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!", or is it vice versa?

Ah well. You all enjoy. I think I'll pass on this.

#46 Edited by ApatheticAvenger (1636 posts) - - Show Bio

So I'm assuming Wolverine and Beast start off on the Avengers side then realize they should probably stick by Cyclops and the rest of mutantkind later.

This is made more likely by the fact that the other members of the Jean Grey School (Armor, Iceman, Gambit) are shown on the X-Men side. It's like how Spidey realized Tony Stark was a d**k during Civil War.
