Apparently Hastings is a chain store that recently began ordering their comics from the direct market, and are now issuing their own variant covers on certain titles. That may make getting your hands on the following variant issue well worth your while, I guess it depends on how many Hastings there are in The US? Anyway, regardless of its value it's still a pretty cool cover, as Deadpool takes bets from the likes of Apocalypse, Mr Sinister and Red Skull on which team will win out in Avengers Vs X-Men. Who would you place your money on?



The two biggest franchises in comics history go to war! A 12-issue event written by the unprecedented team of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Jonathan Hickman, Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction with art by the blockbuster trio of John Romita Jr., Olivier Coipel and Adam Kubert, Avengers VS X-Men brings Marvel's biggest characters into conflict for an unforgettable battle beginning in April 2012!

that is pretty cool cover,i'm very loyal to the x-men so a part of me wants them to win.

but marvel have got a movie to promote this year so i can see the avengers winning this,just like when they got steve rogers back in the captain america uniform just in time for the captain america the first avenger release.

@marvel72 It would be awesome if one side could win.
But I bet they'll summon a greater evil by accident and will have to combine their strength to defeat it. (or something like that)

Notice the big [frick]ing Sentinel in the background trying to get in on the action? How would his big robot hands handle the little notes? So unrealistic!:)

@ bucht

yeah you're probably right about them teaming up for the greater good.

having one outright winner would be excellent.

I wonder what Wade's vig is....

Woo! Deadpool, wins!

This is another great cover for this book.

Bucht: In the spirit of this cover, put me down for twenty bucks that you're right about them teaming up to face some common foe or bigger threat for the "greater good". They don't really want a clear winner between the teams, because if that happens, they're really going to piss off fans of the team that loses.

Nice to see the real Red Skull again...

*sigh*

1) That is a sweet cover!

2) grif does have a point, though.

3)Tea - Ultron probably keeps his wallet where ever the hell he wants too. Not sure where he keeps it on his person (person?) but at home I'm thinking he keeps his personal effects in a hollowed out human skull. That's all people are good for.

@leeharveyoswld - his name is Paco Medina.

I will be getting this variant. Very creative.

Any particularly good reason why these teams are going against each other?

@Teabag- awesome gif!

@teabag - That's why Jocasta dropped that loser!

AND IN THIS ISSUE, VENOM BONDS WITH GHOST RIDER..

Ha! Sometimes I think the smaller the circle of people that get a joke, the funnier it is.

So if he's around to take bets I guess he didn't get his death wish like he wanted...

Ultron doesn't use a wallet, he takes your money and you say thank you Sir, would you like more?
NextHero08 - 3/1/2012, 8:46 AM
HA! I HAVE A HASTINGS UP THE STREET! OWN IT!
