Just in time for the holidays, Diamond Select Toys has announced the four figures that will make their way into the Marvel Minimates Toys R Us line.
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.
Marvel has released a sneak peek to the final issue of Avengers vs. X-Men that arrives in stores on October 03, 2012.
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 about comic death as a sales stunt. My own recent comic book inventory included copies of Captain America 25, Superman 75, Crisis On Infinite Earths 7 & 8 and other such thanotic foolishness, and I’ll go on record right now as stating that this issue will probably be the top seller for the month, thanks to the mainstream press and the speculator mentality.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, for some reason, with an inexplicable British accent) is fire, is life incarnate, is Tuck everlasting with a side of sweet potato fries and a lovely asparagus gastrique, asking: Don’t we, as the consumers, bear just as much responsibility for the proliferation of these kind of stunts as the creators do?
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!
The New York Daily News broke the news that Professor X is going to be killed in Avengers vs. X-Men #11, on sale TODAY!
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.
Marvel has released a sneak peek of Avengers vs. X-Men #11 by Brian Michael Bendis and Olivier Coipel.
Or – “There’s A Guy Here Asking To Be Paid, Said Something About The Children?”
Scott Summers learns the price of hubris, while Hope Summers comes into her own… Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
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!
There were rumors floating that Marvel didn’t reveal several important titles coming out in October that tie into the Avengers vs. X-Men fallout. Marvel has revealed the first hand full of those books, and who is involved.
