Yeah, Bendis' tie-ins tend to be very dependent on the main event. There are single issues worth reading though. The Civil War issue of New Avengers focusing on Luke Cage was arguably one of the very best things to come out of Civil War.

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

Wolverine and the X-Men 11 was alright. It was dependent on knowing what was going on in the main book, but did actually add a few layers to Wolverine's motivations. It takes place after Hope picked up Logan in the Antarctic, but before they steal the AIM ship to go to the moon. For those who wondered why when in AvX 4, Wolverine had Hope at his mercy and decided not to kill her when that had been his stated goal along, you get your answer. Just simply-- he couldn't do it. He is in the business of saving kids now, and felt that the Avengers are the best hope to do so without killing or exploiting her.

I loved Iceman's fight with Red Hulk. They have said in the past that Iceman is "Omega Class", but this is one of the first times that I've believed it as presented.

X-Men: Legacy 267 was better. It was less dependant on the main story, and got into the head of Rogue as her past conflicts with the Avengers haunt her memories. By the end of the story, any pretense the school may have had about neutrality is gone as the faculty sends the Avengers packing. It seems pretty much that Kitty and Sam are staying at the school, mostly for the kids sake, but more and more teachers are joining the fight.

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

yeah, best part of Wolverine and the X-Men was Iceman vs Red Hulk. Legacy was pretty good too. liked Rogue struggling to get Moon Knight's personality under control.

I haven't read any X-Men titles since Hope got back from bouncing around the Universe with Cable. I feel I have a lot of catching up to do.

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

oh man, this would be absolutely unbelievable if it ever became a movie especially in Whedon's hands again, my only question mark would be the time devoted to each character i.e. would a 2 hour movie be sufficient to give all characters a fair crack of the whip?

Perhaps luckily, we'll never know. The film rights to X-Men and Avengers belong to different studios.

Previews for AvX 5 and tie-ins from Avengers Academy and Uncanny X-Men.

I don't acknowledge that "movie."

Preview pages for what will be the final battle ever between Rogue and Ms. Marvel.

I am, of course, now anxiously awaiting the first ever battle between Rogue and Captain Marvel.

Given the history between these two characters, it seems a given that they would face off against one another during AvX. Looking forward to it.

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...
Well...



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?"

Well. This one has certainly gone off the rails, hasn't it?
