A+X #1 Review

Comic Reviews

Marvel, never one to shy away from capitalizing on their “epic events”, has staged a couple of new series to spinoff from Avengers vs. X-Men.  AvX Consequences is the mini-series and A+X is the ongoing series.  The setup is simple…take one Avenger and one X-Man and have them team-up in short stories.  In the first issue, we have Captain America “plus” Cable, and Hulk “plus” Wolverine.  I have my doubts on whether this lasts a year (12 issues), but we shall see.

A few years ago, the adjective-less X-Men title morphed into X-Men Legacy.  The book went from focusing on Charles Xavier to having Rogue as the main character.  Issue 275 is the end of this current run for the title, as it will be relaunched with a brand new #1 in the Marvel NOW! featuring Xavier’s son Legion.

Invincible Iron Man #527 Review

Comic Reviews

Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca have been paired together on The Invincible Iron Man since July 2008. I want to say that neither man has missed an issue. That is an INCREDIBLE achievement in today’s comic book landscape. Tony Stark has just finished his battled with the Mandarin. Stark’s left to pick up the pieces of his life while trying to move forward. But will he be able to?

AvX: Consequences #4 Review

Comic Reviews

 

I have to say it…..I’ve been totally impressed with the AvX Consequences mini-series. I normally avoid titles that spin out of event books. They are used to transition characters onto their next status quo and do not offer much in terms of story. AvX Consequences is no different, but the reason I care so much is because of my investment in the world of X-Men. I want to see what happens to Scott Summers and if he will travel down the road to redemption. As the story progresses, I now also want to see where the Phoenix Five and Extinction Team go from here.

Avengers Assemble #8 Review

Comic Reviews

Avengers Assemble #8 wraps up the first arc on the newly launched series following Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The series was launched to give fans of the blockbuster movie a title that looked familiar to them. It follows the members of the movie (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Black Widow) and also deals with Thanos, who was shown in the post-credits scene.

The Avengers are aided by the Guardians of the Galaxy, who also are receiving their own cinematic movie in Marvel’s “Phase Two” initiative. Both teams must work together to stop Thanos, who has gotten his hands on a cosmic cube.
