COMICS: Marvel Announces AVENGERS VS. X-MEN Limited Tie-In Series, "VS"
Marvel has released the first art and details for VS, a sister title to Avengers Vs. X-Men which will focus solely on the fights between the heroes. First up? Magneto vs. Iron Man and Namor vs. The Thing!
The six-issue limited series will kick off in April with rotating creative teams, the first of which will feature Jason Aaron/Adam Kuber and Kathryn Immonen/Stuart Immonen. The book will expand upon the various battles in Avengers Vs. X-Men and will serve as its only sister title. Here's how Tom Brevoort describes the series. "Not a lot of conversation, introspection or sitting around tables. Page one has somebody punching somebody, the last page has somebody shooting somebody else. his is the ultimate book for the quintessential Marvel fan. There will be fighting in the main AvX series, but there's not enough space to do justice to every conflict. That is the purpose of VS."
The first two battles in #1? Iron Man vs. Magneto and Namor vs. The Thing, and for those of you worrying that the main series will also be nothing more than the Avengers and X-Men knocking seven bells out of each other, Brevoort went on to make it clear that it's not quite that simple. "The positions of both the Avengers and the X-Men in AvX are hopefully presented effectively so that you think either side could be right. There will be moments where some Avengers break ranks and side with the X-Men and vice versa. Wolverine, Beast and Storm are conflicted. Hawkeye, Spider-Woman and Ms. Marvel might be as well."
