Avengers Vs X-Men #1 (of 12)

by lucstclair on April 06, 2012

The Phoenix Force is heading towards earth obliterating entire worlds in it’s path. The Avengers have reason to believe it wants to merge with the mutant known as Hope Summers and they want to put her into their protective custody, but Cyclops & The X-Men will do everything in their power to stop them from taking Hope.


Marvel’s biggest event of 2012 is finally here so let’s get ready to rumble! Captain America & Cyclops have a tense discussion leader to leader that goes from bad to worse in a matter of minutes. Who will throw the first punch? You know in a movie when something climactic happens, then it slows down and focuses on the people’s reaction? That’s exactly what happens at the end of this comic.


John Romita Jr.’s illustrations look better than ever. With the help of colorist Laura Martin, The Phoenix Force looks white hot. Written by a handful of the finest writers Marvel has produced: Jason Aaron (Wolverine & The X-Men), Brian Michael Bendis (Moon Knight), Ed Brubaker (Winter Soldier), Jonathan Hickman (FF Vol. 1) & Matt Fraction (Invincible Iron Man). Nuff said! From Marvel Comics.
