From Jason Aaron:“In the past, the typical Marvel thing when two groups of heroes cross paths was: They would meet, there would be some kind of misunderstanding, and they would fight. Then they would make their peace, and team up to save the day. This is not that kind of story. This is 12 issues of gigantic brawls for the fate of the world, where both sides really have a defensible position. Cap is the General of the Avengers. Cyclops is the General of the X-Men. Logan is that wild card in the middle. You don’t know where’s he’s going to go. As things start to unfold, Logan’s role will continue to shift and chance.
This is superhero comics at their biggest and finest. Even if we could make this movie today, nobody could ever afford to. You’d have to have a $20 billion special effects budget."
From Brian Michael Bendis: “It isn’t just two mindless armies smashing into each other. These people have very, very strong ideals. With a story like this, I want it to count. I can absolutely, whole-heartedly tell you that the Marvel universe will change for good and for all time. It’s my last Avengers title, and I’m going out with a blaze of Phoenix Force glory.”
Avengers Vs. X-Men or AvX is a limited series comic book crossover to be published by Marvel Comics beginning in April 2012, that involves the rebirth of the Phoenix Force, the subsequent war between the Avengers (consisting of the main team, the New Avengers, and the Secret Avengers) and the X-Men, and the emergence of a future Age of Ultron, as foreshadowed in Marvel Point One. It will be a 12-issue limited series following Avengers: X-Sanction and X-Men Regenesis story lines.
The event is preceded by Avengers Vs. X-Men #0, which will be published in March 2012. According to Marvel, Avengers Vs. X-Men is the end result of all the threads from the Fear Itself, X-Men: Schism and Avengers: The Children's Crusade stories coming together.
