Blech. I can't believe I read the whole thing.The underlying plot was a good idea, but it turned into a really goofy slug-fest. Hope is the first mutant born since Wanda's 'No More Mutants' thing, and the Phoenix is on the way to use her for something. Is that a good thing, or is it an End-Of-The-World thing?600 pages laterd I don't care.This could have perhaps been a better read if the VS stuff hadn't been displayed so prominently. It's a comic, so of course I wanna see some fighting, but this? [...]
Phoenix - the fiery and all-powerful being that possessed Jean Grey in the “Dark Phoenix Saga” - is returning to Earth because the “creative” directors at Marvel have run out of ideas and are desperately ransacking past, greater storylines for their new books. The vessel Phoenix is going to choose, everyone thinks, will be Hope, the first and only mutant born after Scarlet Witch’s “No More Mutants” curse. Captain America and co. remember the devastation brought about by Phoenix the [...]
The Phoenix is coming again. It has burnt a fiery path of destruction on its way to Earth. The Avengers and X-Men know where it's heading or rather who it's heading to, Hope Summers. Cyclops believes the Phoenix through Hope will bring back mutant kind from the brink of extinction, but the Avengers fear for the Earth. Cyclops along with the X-Men are adamant that Hope stays with them even if it means war against the Avengers.These are mutantsThese are mutants on Phoenix.I know it looks cool, but [...]
Like many comic book fans, I’m suffering from acute crossover fatigue, and this one didn’t do anything to cure me of it.I was moderately interested because it seemed like it would address the fact that it’s starting to feel like the mutants and the other Marvel characters inhabit completely separate universes. (Except for when crossover time rolled around.) It’s got a decent set-up for a conflict between the two teams. The Phoenix force is on its way to Earth to bond with Hope, the only [...]

This was HORRIBLE.I never really liked Cyclops, but I sure loathe him now. What a douchecanoe.And I know there are different people doing the art, but Hope goes from being a pre-teen to a young woman from issue to issue. Where's the consistency? The art is not very nice overall and the story? Oh my gosh, trainwreck. Get over yourselves, X-Men and Avengers.I'm giving an extra half star purely because of Spiderman's banter. What a drainer. 1.5 lets-fight-for-no-reason-at-all Stars
Another year, another disappointing Marvel crossover event. The premise is right there in the title. Unfortunately, building the crossover meant jettisoning a much better plot. Before I begin, full disclosure: I'm not entirely up to date on what's going on with Marvel. I haven't really read much since House of M (I know, I know). So when (say) Illyana shows up, I don't say, "hey, Magik, cool," I say, "wait, when did she come back?" Also, I came through comics (not just Marvel, all comics) throug [...]
Marvel's big event for 2012 was Avengers Versus X-Men (AvX) and I must say they pretty much accomplished what it set to do. It gave the fans a battle royale of its top two properties, it was able to move a lot of books during the duration of the event, and it gave the new readers who came in AvX a chance to stay and buy more comics after the story with its new Marvel NOW! initiative.The title says it all, the Avengers lead by Captain America up against the X-Men of Cyclops. Marvel's top two supe [...]
The only real reason anyone should read Avengers vs X-Men is because of the fact that the 'repercussions of the storyline resulted in the new status quo of the Marvel Universe presented in the company's Marvel NOW! relaunch initiative'. It birthed a new line-up of X-titles based on the aftermath of said major event. Heck, I'm currently reading one now (Uncanny Avengers) which is shitty, by the way, and almost rivals X-Men Volume IV which I quit halfway through. I'm quitting Rick Remeder's UA soo [...]
My review will be spotty as I'm reading this interleaved with the rest of the Avengers vs. X-Men event books. Nice setup - finally we see Hope's Phoenix power really threaten, and we get some genuine-seeming interactions between the key characters.However, once the fighting begins, the ridiculous narration as each pair of fighters punch each other is brutal. It's like an amateur boxing announcer, trying to generate gravitas and meaning from what are generally meaningless events. "Wow, looks like [...]
At first it seemed this was an excuse to have the two groups go at each other similar to opposed groups in the Civil War series.But, very good to higher character motivations fused with the long going legend of the Phoenix amped up the quality for me.The vibrant artwork helped, too. OVERALL GRADE: A minus
This is far removed from how shit I thought this was going to be. Marvel events are normally something I avoid like the plague, but this was on sale offer online so I needed something easy to read on holiday with a lot of pages. It's a terrible name for a comic for starters, but if you're a marvel geek like me it's not so bad. You get to see loads of different characters and they all get time to shine and seeing them pair up like Dr. Strange and the punisher was pretty cool. It's about the Phoen [...]
As advertised, a very exciting story. Although exciting, this was not at all memorable, a lot of 'phoenix' crap and superhero fights. Glad that the story is self contained so that we won't have to see it referenced endlessly in future comics.
This book provides some insight into the reasoning (or total lack of reasoning) that goes on in the minds of self entitled Elitist Oligarchical decision making for the general population, as two groups of 'Good Guys' go to war over who will direct the future of mankind, while destroying the lives of those they say they are doing it all for, who do not have any voice at all in the narative.
Why the heck would two superhero teams that fight for good and justice pit themselves head to head in an ultimate showdown of epic proportions? Why Hope and the Phoenix of course!What I love about this book is how they take all your favorite superheroes and you get a taste of them all. You get Spider-man's antics, Cyclops's angst, Iceman's shirtless body. ;) You get the picture. There is something for everyone here!The second thing I enjoy is the story creates an interesting dilemma in which I'm [...]
I am surprised and thrilled to report that I actually really enjoyed a Marvel crossover! The first one in years! Now, I don't think this comes anywhere close to the narrative force of something like House of M or the scope and plotting of something like Infinity Gauntlet, but I was very happy with this.The opening is a little concerning. The Avengers learn that the Phoenix Force is returning to earth, likely to inhabit Hope, who's been built up as the mutant messiah for a couple of years now. So [...]
Oh boy oh boy where do I even begin?This was a mess.Reading everything I actually liked it and how the big crossover tied some loose ends together. Mostly satisfied about Hope and Wanda's part in this and how they developed and things made more sense.But the first half I seriously considered to put it down and not finish it at several points. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE was acting like stupid, immature, trigger-happy douchebags. When things were actually quite simple to solve, just through tal [...]
A promising start, but after a couple of chapters it's clear where this is heading, it's not really the Avengers vs. X-Men, but Avengers vs. Phoenix Force. So all the typical hype that goes with these Marvel events, and we don't even get what is says on the title. Grrrr, HULK SMASH. By the midpoint, the story get's confusing, that's some kind of achievement considering how thin the plot is. There is no meat to the story beyond the WWE style smash up, and disappointing when you look at the guys w [...]
It looks like the reviews of this are pretty mixed, but I thought it was actually really fun. It felt sprawling and epic, the characters had interesting things to do, the stakes were high, and the art was excellent. Jason Aaron's chapter 4 was written extremely poorly, and there was a giant timejump in the middle that felt like something was missing, but those gripes didn't complicate the rest of the story. It did feel a bit choppy at times, and I could definitely see where pieces that probably [...]
So, I had to jump on the crossover madness, and even though I've often been a fan of Bendis, there was just too much going on for me to care.I was slightly interested in the phoenix storyline because I've never read any of the previous incarnations, but it was such a mess that I wondered what I was doing in this little sidequest of a comic. I could have been reading Hulk or more Wolverine-Prof-X, both of which I was really getting into. Call this a learning experience. Move on.
It was an ambitious story that was done pretty well. Just not well enough. There are some really good parts I liked a lot. But a complete cohesive storyt so much. These stories are practically destined to be OK or just plain bad. They rely on a shallow concept and then try to shoehorn a story in somehow. But I'm enough of an old school X-Man fan to care :)
What a mess.Save yourself some time and just play Marvel vs. Capcom instead. It's more fun, and the plot you generate will be equally as meaningful.
Alhamdulillah I loved it. I hope there will be Avengers VS X-Men TV/film series in the future. Inshallah.There were lots of action in this comic.
That kind of sucked.Marvel, it's time to slow down with the big crossover events. They can be fun. They can be REALLY fun. But part of the fun is that you don't go from one huge crossover to another. You have to give us some time.However, it seems like you insist. So maybe we could lay some ground rules that I think would be mutually beneficial?1. Let's try to have the maximum number of characters in their default state when it comes to these huge crossovers. What I mean is that we have these bi [...]
Avengers vs. X-Men, simply put, was one of the better Marvel events I have ever read. The story is told at a quick pace from the get go, and it is told in a quick, concise manner that doesn't waste your time with melodrama.The art is brilliant, too; in fact, there were moments when I'd simply stop and just admire the great artwork. The fight scenes are cut from the main issues, but they are available in AVX VS, which is a "fight book" that I enjoyed a lot.I am currently following AVX: Consequenc [...]
This is the big one. The REALLY big one. I'm sure fanboys all over the net have been wishing for this for years, and it's finally here. The two biggest super-teams in the Marvel Universe, finally going head-to-head.With the mutant race on the verge of extinction, and the team divided in two, things look bleak for the X-Men. But when the cosmic Phoenix Force returns to Earth in search of a new host, Cyclops believes that Hope Summers, the so-called 'mutant messiah', can use its power to spark the [...]
This was such a great instalment! Mainly because one of my favourite characters Emma Frost had one of the leading roles! From about half way in it really takes off, and I had to finish it in that sitting!A great read and some of the illustrations are just incredible!
I'm going to go against the grain here, I know. I loved this book. Did it have the deepest plot? No. Was it something that changed the way comics will be written and created for years to come? No. Well, sort of. It's got a lot of impact on a lot of characters. First off, I approached this like I approached the Avengers movie: as a fanboy. If you have any appreciation for Marvel characters and books whatsoever, this premise alone should have you absolutely salivating. I've heard people complain t [...]
Jeepers Creepers!!(those words alone should tell you that I am not a cool person, a nerd, or have any real business reading this book. I just read it for fun.)This book was HUGE!!And HEAVY!!I think I've built up some great definition in my arms just by lugging this book around. Thanks Marvel!It's also pretty pricey! I found that out after my cat, Lucky, started licking the cover. Ahhh!! Thank goodness there was a plastic cover over it and he didn't start gnawing on the edge like some kitties do. [...]
"The Phoenix force is a chance for mutant kind to sustain on its own again."The main driving factor behind this entire saga where two major sets of super-powered good guys are pitted against each other. I must say before I state as to how the story fared in the eyes of I as a reader that the intention was right, sadly the interpretation was messed up. Instead of making it an awe-inspiring event, it ended up being a full on brawl between the Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the Mutant Champions. Phoe [...]
