Avengers vs X-Men is Finally Here!

Avengers vs X-Men #1 is Finally Here!Avengers vs X-Men #1 

“Round 1″

Arguably the biggest event in the comic book universe this year is here!  With one optic blast from Cyclops, the fight for mutant or human kind is on like Donkey Kong.  Avengers vs X-Men #1′s first page makes this battle look extremely lopsided, with the Avengers sporting 22 members and the greatly outnumbered X-Men standing with only 6 mutants. Wolverine and Beast sit in the middle like two kids placed awkwardly in a custody battle between divorcing parents.

The pissing contest between Captain America and Cyclops stems from the impending return of the Phoenix.  Captain America feels he’s protecting the best interests of Earth while Cyclops, sounding strangely similar to Magneto, wants the “rebirth” of an endangered mutant race.  This will not end quietly.

The art is decent,  it’s not brilliant, but that doesn’t matter since it’s overshadowed by the superb writing style of Bendis.  Events happen quickly and without warning, a lot of it that will make you say “whoa” out loud.  Each group puts up a strong argument, but I feel there’s going to be some turmoil between each group surround the idea of doing “the right thing”.  But what’s “the right thing”, will they follow their leader or question their ultimate motives?  I am really feeling this book and I can’t wait to see what directions this story goes.  There’s also this Augmented Reality thing that marvel is doing, download the mobile ap here and take pictures of every box that contains the AR logo for a little extra in depth look into this book.  It’s not much, but it adds a little extra to an already great book.

Pick the book up today at Cosmic Comics in Las Vegas, and see many of my other reviews for them there also.
