Marvel’s 2012 Event Revealed : The Avengers vs. The X-Men

Earlier at NYCC this year, Mike and I attended the Marvel Cup O’ Joe panel and saw this image on the screen:

Clearly, the Phoenix Force is making its comeback, but in what capacity, we hadn’t known since it was first revealed. Then, USA Today released this article today and all was revealed – Avengers vs. X-Men:

As you can see, the Marvel “architects” are set to write the entire 12-issue bi-weekly run, which goes into the following synopsis:

“Kicking off in a special “zero issue” prologue in March written by Bendis and Aaron, Avengers vs. X-Men begins the next month with an extinction-level event barreling its way toward Earth, namely the cosmic entity of death and rebirth known as the Phoenix Force. It’s looking for a new host who will possess all of its power, which may or may not be the mutant teenager Hope Summers.

Cyclops, Wolverine, Magneto and the other X-Men want to protect her and prepare her if she’s to be the new Phoenix. Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man and their fellow Avengers want her handed over to them so they can figure out what to do with her and keep the world safe from a potentially fiery fate.

Suffice it to say, tensions — and fisticuffs — arise.”

You can’t help but think Civil War as you read this, although not on the political and human rights level that the Mark Millar series was diving into. But we’re obviously a ways off from knowing anything more. Stay tuned as the details reveal themselves.

The real question to ask – will Wolverine make a guest appearance?

Comments

  • In a stunning move by Marvel, Wolverine will be killed off in February and sit out the entire event, only to be resurrected a week after it concludes. Marvel fanboys everywhere will panic when they realize that the Canadian hero will be completely missing. “Where will I get my Wolverine fix?” they’ll cry. “I rely on his 43 appearances every month! Marvel is removing him from the twelve teams he’s currently on? That’s MADNESS!”

    “What?! F*ck that noise! I’m out. If you need to get ahold of me I’ll be in Madripoor.”

    – James “Logan” Howlett, aka Wolverine.
