Hopefully Epic

Here’s the cover to Avengers Vs. X-Men # 0, prologue to the 12-issue biweekly series scheduled for an April release. Looks promising. So the Scarlet Witch survives the Children’s Crusade mini. She and Hope Summers (who seems unaware that she’s linked to the Phoenix Force), will be key figures, according to reports. I hope the two X-Men teams set aside their differences temporarily so they’ll be strong enough to face the multiple Avengers teams. A definite winner will emerge, according to Marvel EiC Axel Alonso. The two teams fought a few times before, during the ‘80s Avengers Vs. X-Men mini and more recently, during Children’s Crusade, among other stories. Anyway, it’s a long series, so I hope that the creative teams cover every possible story angle (including Storm, Beast and Wolverine’s loyalties), and come up with only relevant tie-ins.
