COMICS: Marvel Debuts New Covers Of Avengers & X-Men: AXIS #4, #5 & #6 For AXIS Act Two: Inversion
Ready for Inversion? The newest covers to issues #4, #5 and #6 of AXIS are here! AXIS will continue with Act Two: Inversion, featuring inverted versions of multiple characters and the return of a few as well. Hit the jump to check out the covers and discover who is coming back.
This afternoon, Marvel.com held a live chat on their official website hosted by writer Rick Remender and executive editor Tom Brevoort where they announced the next stage of Avengers & X-Men: AXIS that follows AXIS Act One: Red Supremacy called AXIS Act Two: Inversion, "the recalibration of the Marvel Universe's moral compass".
In Act Two, many Marvel characters will get inverted versions of themselves, characters with different personalities. Some include Sabretooth feeling the pain of his victims and Carnage on a trail of redemption, despite still causing bloodshed. Carnage and Hobgoblin will additionally obtain AXIS miniseries starring their inverted counterparts. Other characters slated to appear in AXIS include Apocalypse and the Hulk's Hulk.
Inversion will also tell the story of how Tony Stark becomes the Superior Iron Man with his new series to be spun out of AXIS. He moves to San Francisco due to Remender's time living there, as well as being fascinated with the "Tech Junkies" versus the "Punkers" who live there. But not everybody is going to enjoy Stark's stay there, one of them being Daredevil.
During the live chat, Marvel released the covers of issues #4, #5 and #6 of AXIS by Jim Cheung.

"This is not mind control. These characters are making choices, but their moral alignments have been turned upside down. That leads to Act Three, the biggest X-Men showdown I can think of, plus big stuff for Spider-Man, the Avengers...everybody." - Rick Remender
"Huge changes coming for Scarlet Witch, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Sabretooth, Kid Apocalypse...huge huge beat for Loki." - Rick Remender
"I had a draft of this story where Sam Wilson was saving everybody from everything, but as I broke it down and talked to other people, his role shifted a bit. Like a lot of other characters, he pays a pretty heavy price. He has a big role in this. You will be seeing a pretty big fight between Captain America and the X-Men. It was nice to put Sam in that situation and see how the dynamics play out." - Rick Remender
"A really big part of issue #4 and that pays out in issue #7 is Cyclops. You'll see a re-shuffling of things with the X-Men in Axis. We've worked close with the X-Men office. What the X-Men do in this event is not something the world can forget any time soon." - Rick Remender
"At least one villain coming out of Axis will be getting a bigger spotlight." - Rick Remender
"The promise of an event this big has to be lasting ramifications that lead to more big stories. Look at the symbiote from Secret Wars that becomes Venom. That's what makes this interconnected universe fun. will lead to a whole new book I am writing with a number of characters who are very changed from this story. The inversion isn't going to be completely wrapped up with a perfect bow." - Rick Remender
"Axis is the end of my 'things to do with Apocalypse that make me happy' list for now." - Rick Remender
"Magneto, Quicksilver, Doctor Doom and the Scarlet Witch are the running B-story during the second act." - Rick Remender
"Luke Cage is part of a team actually called Axis. They are born of this. They're a band of people up to no good. They are the Axis of Evil. Medusa, Captain America and the former Thor and others we have seen are part of that group." - Rick Remender
"Steve Rogers plays a huge role in the story. If Steve and Sam were at odds, that would be an interesting story..." - Rick Remender
"Inverted characters have the same memories and all, but that moral compass is aligned differently. Sabretooth is not capable of killing the way he used to. Imagine a sociopath waking up with a sense of ethics. Same guy, likes pizza the same way, dances the same kind of mamba, but..." - Rick Remender
