I was disappointed with this issue. The panels did not flow well. It seemed clumsy and forced. The art work was great but made almost no sense at times. As far as the fights, it is as though none of the writers bothered to use any of the vast cannon to see what a real fight would look like.
How I see it (and I may be wrong) is Marvel is going to make sure the Avengers win the battles regardless of the years of Marvel Universe of cannon that would say other wise. They will win and look great winning until May 4th. Because who wants to go see a movie about a bunch of heroes that lose fights? (cough cough Kick-Ass cough) After the big box office opening then the X-men will start winning the fights. In the end neither side will win. No real losers, because something will happen to stop the fighting. Enter Phoenix/Hope.
I was really hoping these fights would be more epic. I am disappoint.
By the way, the "Fun Facts" where painfully annoying. I made the mistake of reading the first couple and just then, a little something in side me died. I had to avert my eyes from reading any more thereafter. WTF, when did comics become VH1 Pop Up hits? They are distracting and makes it impossible to take any thing going on in the panels seriously.
