avengers vs x-men
After every company-wide crossover, the outcome affects the comic universe. Avengers vs. X-Men is no different: Wakanda is devastated, Professor Xavier is dead, and mutantkind is reborn. With the Marvel NOW campaign about to start, A vs X: Consequences looks into the lives of some major players in the aftermath of the Avengers vs. X-Men crossover.
Following the events of Avengers vs. X-Men, Marvel is releasing a five-issue series called Avengers vs. X-Men: Consequences. The company sent over the cover to the first issue, and if you don’t want any spoilers TURN BACK NOW!
I’ve decided to try not spoiler things for the latest issue of Avengers Vs. X-Men, but you’ve probably already heard about the death of one of the founding fathers of the Marvel Universe. As it always does, the conversational cycle has again come around to the chestnut about comic book deaths being meaningless, nobody ever staying dead, and blah blah blah fishcakes that we’ve all heard dozens of times over. Given that the first hero to die in comics (The Comet, for those keeping score) was resurrected just a few years later, I’m somewhat amused to see the inevitable bewilderment
So the official press release announcing Xavier’s “Ultimate Sacrifice” has landed. AND if you haven’t picked up Avengers vs. X-Men, for gosh-darn sakes Spoilerites, don’t take the jump because those pages are there, after the jump!
It all comes to an end in October with the release of Avengers vs. X-Men #12. Marvel sent out a new teaser image that puts Jean Grey and the Phoenix Force front and center.
Or – “It All Comes Down To Parker, Because It ALWAYS Comes Down To Parker.” The power of the Phoenix has not made Scott Summers more reasonable, and his actions since declaring the Avengers his enemy clearly demonstrate that he is not as in control as he thought. With one of the Phoenix Five down, the others are 20% more powerful, and probably at least 20% bug-&$#@ crazier. Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Transmute To Fiery Phoenix!” What many expected to be a one-sided beatdown by the Avengers has turned into a world-spanning, game-changing succession to power by Cyclops and his lieutenants. Is even Wanda Maximoff’s power enough to turn the tide for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
