It wasn't. That happened in issue #1 of AVX Vs. Iron Man channeled Jupiter's magnetic field (thanks to satellites Stark Enterprises had placed there for exactly that purpose) to overload Magneto and fry him.

I did like that Magneto recognized Jupiter, as if he's spent some time just cruising about the Solar System.

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

The Iron Man/Magneto confrontation was much better and funnier in the first issue of Magneto: I Am Not A Hero mini-series. Tony is wearing plastic armour basically, which Erik notes right away, and then proceeds to dress Stark down by making him feel extremely insignificant. It was a pretty great moment. The fight book as stated before is absolutely pointless and doesn't even seem fun.

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

Just a few thoughts on this weeks crossovers--

Avengers Academy 33 finishes this books direct connection to AvX and I will be glad to see the book return to its own story. The conclusion of the Sentinel story was cliched and mostly "meh". I usually love AA, but this arc fell flat. "Final Exam" begins next issue.

In Uncanny X-Men 16, the Phoenix Five take on Mr. Sinister... and get their asses handed to them. So then, why didn't the Phoenix abandon them? Especially since Sinister fashioned a half-dozen Jean Grey clones (or "Madelyne's") that the Phoenix could have easily migrated to.

Fantastic Four 608 isn't an AvX crossover as such, but it did have a direct link to this week's issue. The Panther God Bast gve T'Challa a vision of Wakanda's future-- including the Phoenix force and the flood Namor brought. All well and good, except for the fact that T'Challa was a voice of moderation regarding the Phoenix Five. Given T'Challa had been given this vision, you would think that he would have been more in favor of action. *sigh* Just yet characterization another discrepancy, I guess.

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

I enjoyed Avengers Academy 33 (it's my favorite title) and liked Gage's take on Phoenix Emma although I didn't buy for a second that Quicksilver could pull a fast one on her.

I enjoyed Uncanny as well but you brought up a great point about why the Phoenix didn't abandon the Five who Sinister had beaten.

I thought Avengers vs X-Men #8 was a piece of shit. Leave it to Bendis to completely drag down an event and make the issue worse than the first five were.

Thor has been completely humiuliated and bitched out during this entire event.

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

Out today, Avengers Vs. X-Men #9 from Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert:

• Their numbers dwindling, the Avengers stage a daring raid on the X-Men’s prison to rescue their captive members — and you won’t believe where it is!
• Alliances begin to change as the nature of the Phoenix becomes apparent!
• And in the end, it all comes down to Spider-Man!
In two words, Good stuff!

Aaron's script captures the human cost of the struggle well. Spider-Man's natural cheer comes up against the horror of the X-Men's post-Phoenix world. (And you'll see exactly how horrific that world is.) And there's a shocking scene of divine retribution against an ordinary person.

There are some really nice touches in the story. Spidey bonding with Hope, Storm's decision, the conversation between Scott and Emma, and Spidey's ultimate decision in the X-Men's prison.

Definite upswing in quality from the earlier issues.

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

Is Ms. Marvel in it at all?

I'm trying to figure out the timeline of this whole thing, since I just picked up Captain Marvel last week. And that issue had Carol fighting alongside Captain America(!) who you think would be too busy with the X-Men to go after Absorbing Man with Carol, lol.

That way lies madness, from what I understand. AVX isn't consistent with its own tie-ins, so it's unlikely that it's going to mesh with books that aren't connected the the event.

So they actually followed up on one of their tie-in issues? Wow. LOL Have been looking forward to this issue for sometime now.

^ The dynamic between Hope and Spidey was established in New Avengers, so there is that as well.

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

In the first Secret War, Spier-Man took on all the X-men Single handed, and won.

Did not know who they were fucking with.

In Amazing 270 something he took down a herald of Galactus just with the power of Punching, and he wasn't winded or bloody or desperate enough to drop a building on him or nothing, Firelord vs Spider-Man and Pete won just by getting hit in the face 10 thousand times less than the other guy.

That's smart.

He should do that all the time.

Recently, he used his molecular adhesive powers to pull Iron Mans face plate off with his finger tips and then punch Stark in his naked face.

but this?

Woah!

The Yoko Factor?

Wow, that's some poisonous shit to unload on even crazy gods with a doomsday fetish, even crazy RUSSIAN gods with a doomsday fetish.

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

Just Spectacular (pun intended). Jason Aaron writes Peter with the perfect balance, and gives him his Avenger moment. I'm guessing that it is going to come down to Scott and Emma in the finale. Emma questioning herself now, and Scott still not really caring about anything except his own agenda (good or bad). The art was great. This has got better since Hickman's issue. I guess that it is it for Ororo and T'Challa who never really got a chance to be married after their much publicized marriage. Oh well.

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

The unit of measurement for an embarrassing failed celebrity marriage is the Kardashian.

72 days.

September 2006 to November 2012

2160(ish) days

Which is 30 Kardashians.

Of course real life time compared to comicbook time are inpropotional, and could bring that number down to 3 or less kardashians considering they got married during the preamble of the Civil War.

I still believe that George Bush has brass ones for going to that wedding when he knew that Cap would be there.

LMD?
