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

Out this week, Avengers Vs. X-Men #5, drawn by John Romita, Jr., scripted by Matt Fraction:

The fiery conclusion of Act One is here! Clashing on a lunar battlefield, the tide of the conflict will be turned...

It's a pretty thin comic, to be honest. It's probably wordier than any of the issues thus far, and Hope's narration of the events is pretty compelling.

Here's what bothered me...

I guess it's the character motivations. They just don't make that much sense.

That said, it's an interesting turning point we've reached, and I expect that, several issues from now, at least one or two of the characters will say, shades of Star Trek III, "My god, what have I done?"
