SPOILERS! if you havent already heard.. MARVEL NOW! after avx will have the Avengers & the X men merging to join one team...
there are upsides.. & some serious down sides.. I'll start with the pro's
PRO 1) THE MUTANTS ARE IN GOOD HANDS
For years the x men & mutant kind in general have been bullied by sentential's & anti mutant groups such as the purifiers but now by merging with the avengers these anti mutant organizations have to now deal with an army of powerful mutants + famous superhumans, Gods, Hulks & Sorcerers. its going to be ALOT harder to kill mutants now
PRO 2) LESS CRIME
there arent to many individuals that can handle the combined strength of both the X men & Avengers there like a gaint super army backed by S.H.E.I.L.D
PRO 3) THE MARVEL UNIVERSE IS MORE UNITED THAN EVER
With the Avengers ever growing it seems like all the hero's are working together Fantastic 4 , Avengers, solo heros & the x men kinda reminds me of the days when they all teamed up on onslaught
now lets talk about the Cons...
CON #1 THE X MEN WILL SOME HOW FADE INTO THE BACKGROUND
Its an unspoken rule but a very true one.. if you aren't Spiderman, Captain America, Iron man, Hulk, Thor or Wolverine .. you will eventually be a bench warmer when the big games come around. I love them all except cap but lets be honest.. why do you think the Avengers are the MAIN team? these 6 superhero's
yes yes storm has a huge fan base, cyclops, x factor ect.. but these 6 have fans that dont even read or know anything about comics but know & love them completely if the x men join with the avengers. many of the already over looked characters in both of the teams will be HEAVILY overlooked
CON #2 WE ARE SERIOUSLY RUNNING OUT OF VILLAINS HERE
The number of hero's grow every day.. there are 2 giant army's of them called the avengers & the X men.. but where are the villains?
High evolutionary is off exploring the cosmos, stryfe is dead & Apocalypse is in his body somewhere in the future, venom is being worn by a good guy, magneto is good, emma frost is good, exodus is locked up, Shaw is good, Doom isnt on earth, Loki is good, Ares is dead, Osborn is in a coma, Graviton is dead, Doc ock is jailed & currently dieing, the neo are dead, Bastion is dead, mastermold dead sentential's disassembled... what is this giant team of superhero's suppose to fight if almost every top bad guy is dead?
CON #3 TO MUCH UNITY IS NOT A GOOD THING
in older comics everything was less joined together but that seems to be a trend now a days.. its good but there are barley any solo fights events & major arcs are filled with giant team superhero fighting which is epic but still.. everyone is becoming an avenger or has connections to them The X men are merging with them soon the Future foundation, FF, X Factor , Defenders, Thunderbolts might do the same thing.. its getting old..
