I hope it's AoA! I have always that the Age of Apocalypse would make the best X-Men movie! I'm holding judgement until I see DOFP, but my inner X-nerd is very excited!

I have been loving the Battle of the Atom story and definitely can't wait to see how the newest twist plays out! I gave Mighty Avengers a try (because I've been enjoying the other Avengers titles) but was very underwhelmed...I usually give books at least an arc to win me over, but I'm probably gonna pass on this one...
This is probably my 2nd favorite book right now. I know a lot of people were not happy (to say the least) with Dan Slott for making SpOck...but I am of the mindset that Peter Parker will be back so I'll just enjoy the ride while he is gone.
TWIST: so maybe Mystique didn't have a kid with Wolverine at all...but with Legion! Thus the "Xavier's grandson" thing. And he has a bunch of physical power sets based off of different personalities. I am on a roll...a highly improbable roll...
Also...check out those eyebrows! Those are totally Xavier eyebrows!
My guess is that the blue guy is "Xavier's grandson". He shape shifted to look like Xavier to gain the trust (and also keep off balance) the X-Men of the present. I know I know...he was shown using telepathic powers to track down young Scott and Jean...but that was only after popping a cerebro pill. I am loving the Battle of the Atom so far so I'll take whatever sneak peek I can get!
Before I start, I just want to say that I am an X-Man fan first and foremost. Now, with that out of the way, I voted for Batman. It's only because most people have wrongly said that Cyclops greatest ability is his optic blasts...WRONG! Cyclops greatest ability has always been his ability to effectively lead others. And in this situation that isn't a factor. Also, the current "in character" Cyclops doesn't even have full control of his own powers anymore. That point aside, even when he has had full control in the past, his effectiveness lessens whenever he has self-doubt (he lost leadership of the X-Men to a powerless Storm...who I'm sure doesn't fight as well as Batman). And he has had plenty of self-doubt since the AvX mess. I love ya Cyke, but Bats is gonna drop ya before you can even blink your ruby peepers.
p.s. prep time or not you don't think Batman is ready to block a concussive blast...really?
I think that I am going to start picking up this title...picked up the Blood Brothers issue because I've been digging The Superior Spider-Man and was very intrigued by Kaine's character. Any pre-Scarlet Spider series stories that I should dig into?
Tony Stark, in an effort to spend more time running his company and hanging out with Pepper, creates an A.I. Ironman that is run by Jarvis...Jarvis gains complete sentience, becomes Ultron, tries to take over the world (yadda yadda yadda) Tony sacrifices himself to stop him...TWIST...but not before transferring is consciousnesses into a newly designed armor and becoming the Vision. (then they can hire someone else to be the Vision for future movies and they won't have to spend so much for RDJ).
@lostlantern13: Finally a thought-out, unbiased, level-headed response! I totally appreciate it. I usually don't actually get a response from anyone when I ask because everyone is re-posting on how everyone else is overreacting to something or other. You are now my favorite lantern!
