Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion

Out today, AVX Vs. #1:
The Premier Tie-In To Avengers Vs. X-Men!
• All-Out action featuring cover to cover battles, each issue expanding on fights from the main AVX book -- In ways you can’t imagine!
• This Issue: Iron Man Vs. Magneto and Thing Vs. Namor!
I feel dumber for having read this.

Magneto Vs. Iron is written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Adam Kubert. It's not as pretentious as Aaron's work on Avengers Vs. X-Men #2, but it's still stupidly wordly.

And I won't even mention what Iron Man does to deliver a knock-out blow to Magneto, except that it's so scientifically absurd that I felt brain cells die.

The only thing worthwhile is Magneto's realization at the end of the story,

The Thing Vs. Namor is by Kathryn Immonen and Stuart Immonen.

Nothing really to say about it. Given the number of times these two have tangled over the years, I was surprised at how superficial it all was. They wail on each other, there's a giant sea monster, that's about it. Stuart Immonen's artwork is nice.

Pretty pointless book overall.
