Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

DC has their New 52, and Marvel has its NOW, an array of refurbished titles featuring its biggest characters. Precipitating that big event comes this big event, and for all the hoopla, Marvel has turned out its most engaging cataclysmic crossover since Civil War. The cosmic Phoenix Force is heading for Earth; the mutant X-Men believe it means a new lease on life for their dwindling species, while the planet-protecting Avengers thinks it’s just bad news. How do you solve this problem? By punching, kicking, slashing, and blasting each other in the face, of course. The assemblage of writers turns out a cohesive and interesting story featuring dire moral compromises and moments of heroism and desperation for several favorite characters, while a team of Marvel’s hottest artists showcase grimly determined faces and gleaming superhero visuals (John Romita Jr.’s Kirby-esque dynamism particularly stands out). The X-Men and, now more than ever, the Avengers are big crowd-pleasers, and with all the extras jam-packed into this edition (it includes the fight-centric VS. miniseries), you can’t go wrong. --Jesse Karp

I loved the hardcover version, and it was in Mint condition!!
S. Cusack
THere were 12 issues in the main story, but not much story really happened and at the end, things kind of went back to normal.
Mark Treitel
The story at times was a bit choppy, however and was too focused on action verses character development.

Avengers Vs X-Men is the culmination of a long and intricate Marvel macro-saga that started in the year 2004 with Avengers Disassembled and continued with House Of M, Messiah Complex, Second Coming and The Children's Crusade (and pretty much every other Marvel event from Civil War to Schism, though those mentioned before are the most relevant ones to AVX, as they deal directly with the Scarlet Witch and Hope). But AVX not only is the culmination of an entire age of Marvel events, it also sets the stage for a new era of storylines that start with the "Marvel NOW!" initiative.

This volume includes:

- Avengers Vs. X-Men #0 to 12 - This is the main series, where pretty much everything happens.

- AVX: VS #1 to 6 - Each issue of this series features two 10-pages long short stories "expanding" fight scenes from the main series. Nothing really relevant happens here, it's only fight scenes, some of them pretty good, but others a little weak and irrelevant.

- Avengers Vs X-Men: Infinite Comics #1, 6 and 10 - Now for the first time in print, this issues were originaly released only in digital form, serving as prologues to issues #1, 6 and 10 of the main series respectively, as those are turning points in the story. (NOTE: These three issues are the only ones ever created for the Infinite Comics series, don't mind the interrupted numbering, issues #2, 3, 4, etc, DON'T EXIST)

- Point One - A 7-pages short story introducing the new Nova character for the first time.

Format: Paperback
The paperback version of Avengers vs X-Men contains ONLY AVX 0-12 and material from Point One. Although the product information states that it also includes AVX: VS 1-6, AVX: Infinite 1, 6, and 10, and a code for a digital copy, these only come with the hardcover edition.
I purchased the paperback through preorder from Amazon Prime and received it the day of its release, like promised and it was fine, although I think Amazon should mail paperbacks with some kind of protection rather than just an envelope, but other than that, no complaints. I was disappointed that the hardcover material was not included, but for $20, more than 13 comics worth of material is still a steal especially considering the cover price of the book is $35. You'll get your money's worth purchasing the paperback, but if you want the other material you may want to invest in the hardcover.
The Infinite comics in the hardcover edition are especially interesting because they have previously only been available through the Marvel Comics app. I'm not sure how they would look in print, because the Infinite comics are designed to work more like animation than normal comics, but the stories in them may be worth reading even if the innovative format of the comics doesn't translate to print.
In regards to the AVX story, its pretty good. It seems like Marvel's most creative ideas happen outside the Marvel universe in the miniseries like Marvel Zombies or some of the other post-apocalyptic stories that take unusual turns and drastically change characters and plotlines. The writers are overly careful with the Marvel universe, however, and often reverse a lot of the impact some of the stories have, such as how major characters are always written back in to the universe (Captain America's death?).

To be honest this is one of the cases where I wish Amazon had a more robust rating system. I really feel this book is a solid C grade, 7 out of 10, 3.5 out of 5 stars, however you want to put it. Since I can't pick that option I have to go with the lower end of the spectrum.

Avengers vs X-Men doesn't have the most logical premise in the world, it is after all just an excuse to see the Avengers fight the X-Men. The Phoenix is returning to Earth and no one really knows what to do about it so the Avengers decide they should attack the X-Men and kidnap a girl who is the most likely host. With the Avengers decision making being as ludicrous as it is the X-Men aren't very happy about it and conflict ensues. The fighting eventually devolves into marvel characters chasing Hope across the globe, pretty standard for an X-Men event (see Messiah Complex and Second Coming). These issues are loud and fast, you get a lot of action but not much in the way of character development. If that's your thing don't get too excited because just 5 issues in Avengers vs X-Men changes things up...well somewhat.

Once the Phoenix finds its host you see an even bigger (but no less logical) divide come between the Avengers and the X-Men. The X-Men proceed to go about fixing the world's problems (whether the world likes it or not) and the Avengers continue with their strategy of attacking the X-Men based on nothing more than suspicion. From this point the X-Men are portrayed as the villains of the series though it could easily be argued every villainous action they take is a direct reaction to aggression brought on by the Avengers. These issues move a little slower (not much) and there are a few attempts at character development.
