Why is Thor fighting Noh Varr?

Avengers vs X-men . why is Noh-Varr fighting Thor?

What is Marvel thinking having Walter Simonson involved in any of their series? That cover of his is ugly

#5 Edited by Donovan Montgomery (5435 posts) - - Show Bio

@SoA: @spiderbat87:Noh Varr is for the Phoenix and Thor is against it?

@TheCheeseStabber: It's wrong because he should not look like he's exerting that much energy fighting Spider-Man.

That New Avengers cover is my favorite. Love the noir-ish feel of it.

Surge, Dust, Teon and Pixie under Sentinel supervision makes me sad. The fan in me wants the Avengers dead.

@Donovan Montgomery: I was thinking more cause his lips look like their in a wind tunnel but i agree about the New Avengers cover I love Noir stuff but it reminds of seeing old cover scans that show him with Phoniex powers

I like the crazy character mash-ups. Never thought I'd see Iron Fist and Hope sharing a cover.

And Gambit is about to get SMASHED by Cap. 8 )

Anyone get the feeling bishops future is destined to happen Also teon looks more and more like a young sabretooth and this story should be used to justify a new group of acoyltes to fight the U.S government under exodus/josephs leadership

#12 Edited by pspin (891 posts) - - Show Bio

According to these covers X-23 is on the Avengers team and sells out her friends and Iron Fist is on the X-Men's team or on his own. Even though in Avengers Academy X-23 is still kind of like how she was in the solo series, if this event ignores it I will be angry. Shaw vs. Mettle would be interesting, especially if Hazmat showed up.

I realize covers don't really mean anything but still this X-23 possibility is disturbing

Wonder what they'd do to prodigy keep him with the others or stick him in a regular prison since he's depowered.

Nope. The most likely scenario is worst extinction considering in this reality there are only less than 200 mutants and since Marvel won't do that to the Xmen.

On the plus side more New X-men X-posure is X-cellent, get's me all X-tremely X-cited. And yes I needed an excuse to put X in words :P

I think Joseph is just a fleeting persona. I am of the mind that he will not make any major impact. The thing is out of all the comics the Xmen has been the ones to constantly been shown to be affected by alternate timelines. This puts me on the thought that Bishops future isn't going to happen simply because it ruins excitement of not knowing what to expect, which is what everyone writing tries to do.

Well While I happy a B-lister like Iron Fist is getting some focus. I have to wonder if any nonwhite male besides Hope and maybe Wanda will do anything of note in this event.

#29 Posted by Cafeterialoca (1504 posts) - - Show Bio

@Skaddix: You know they're setting up an Iron Fist ongoing.

#30 Posted by Cafeterialoca (1504 posts) - - Show Bio

Apparently, the New X-Men go to Avengers Academy so they don't get involved in the fight. They're not in trouble, but they can't leave the campus.

And really, this just leads to the AA kids to side with the New X-Men.

#31 Posted by Fantasgasmic (1071 posts) - - Show Bio

My actual reacations

"Holy sh*t, Juggerlosus' roid rage face."
"X-23 is outside the fence with Avengers Academy, despite being an X-Man? WTF?!"
"Sabastian Shaw's mutton chops look more like a scraggly hobo beard."
"Hope looks too old, like Jean Grey age, not like a teenager."
"Holy F*ck! It's Thor with Hulk's face and MacGyver's mullet."

and then my eyes threw-up.

#32 Posted by MrMiracle77 (1659 posts) - - Show Bio

If there's anything we can learn from these covers, it's that absolutely nothing portrayed in these images will actually happen in the comic.

That makes sense certainly I am expecting some new ongoings and a relauch after this event. I am just saying the last female who got a push is Hope, the last nonwhite male is Miles Morales. Hope's started years ago, so when was the last nonwhite male to get a serious push an event? Marvel likes to talk about diversity but their events never show it.

colossus looks like he needs to take a laxative.

and why is it marvel wont just say they are going to make every marvel book tie in with this useless event? it is as if every week they add another book! JUST SAY IT ALREADY!

Yikes, is it possible the Phoenix Force will go to Iron Fist? Seriously! These covers are nice. Spidey vs. Colossus makes me smile.

I think they should involve the young avengers... I know they're in Children's Crusade right now, but that's pretty much over... they need more love...

Yes Iron Fist protect my Hope..FROM THESE CROSSOVERS! Oy..how the hell am I gonna track this event?

#39 Posted by WildStyle (331 posts) - - Show Bio

Seems to me that Marvel is launching an Iron Fist ongoing after this. He's slowly being used more and more in the Marvel universe and he seems to have an important role in this. Hope this happens.

This event is stupid. There's no good reason for it and I know all of you complaining are going to buy the book anyway.

I get that the covers aren't meant to be literal, but why is X-23 not imprisoned in the mutant camp, but instead outside with her new Avengers Academy buddies? ;) Heh.

#43 Posted by Skaddix (3114 posts) - - Show Bio

@cmaprice:They are imprisoning Scott's Mutants not all Mutants.

This event seems dumb to me but I especially pissed they have no plans to Bring Bishop back seriously he started this war and Marvel railroaded him with some crappy retcons and they have no plans to do anything with him? BS.

#44 Posted by goldenkey (2927 posts) - - Show Bio

I wonder if any non-mutants from the Avengers will trade sides and hang with the X-Men. This is actually an event Im looking forward too. Never thought I'd see Gambit fight Captain America, but it sounds like a good idea to me. The both of them having the agility they do. Sounds cool. Plus some of the other covers look interesting. Im so sick of events because it takes away from everything else for so long but this looks good to me for some reason. Also wondering why Protector and Thor are duking it out since both are Avengers. I have a weird feeling, as a way to get Protector a some more recognition, he's going to beat Thor. Just watch, you'll see.

Is X-23 siding with the Avengers then?

It had the same affect on me too. What the hell did Laura do this time ?

#48 Posted by saoakden (1047 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the New Avengers cover says something. The cover for the previous New Avengers suggest either Iron Fist gets the Phoneix Force or it can some how affect his powers. I think he's with hope to get some answers. I think the Avengers cover is weird. It can be Thor ir Nor-Varr fighting each other or it could be Mystique. The Mettle guy from Avengers Academy looks like Luke Cage to me. Avengers Academy doesn't really appeal to me. I just heard that X-Men Legacy is going to be involved is that true? All the current Avengers and Uncanny X-men and Wolverine and the X-men involved. Plus with one of the Secret Avengers covers is Thor going to Join Secret Avengers?

Thor is leading the Secret Avengers (Beast, Valkyrie and Cap B) plus War Machine, Ms. Marvel, Vision and the Protector on a space mission against The Phoenix Force.

I think pretty much all the X-men Books are in and All the Avengers Books are in.
