I’m not always a huge fan of these giant universe cross overs that happen in comics. I usually prefer books to go their own way for a while and let themselves develop their own characters. Lately, Marvel has had back-to-back-to-back-to-back mega events for what seems like forever.
I understand they’re good for marketing and the fallout of these crazy stories can be really interesting in the single books after the fact. Usually though, I find them irritating.
Avengers vs. X-Men though has somehow captivated my attention. I’m really excited to see certain heroes fight with other heroes and the drama of who is on who’s side is also interesting. Wolverine and Beast for example are on the Avengers side. I’m not sure about Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
I think this whole event will be pretty cool. With the recent upset in X-Men rosters, it will be sure to have an effect on the mutant universe.
