Would Cap really just punch Logan for something so small?? Really??
StrangerX - 4/26/2012, 8:05 AM
Can't believe Cap just swung on him like that.
Odin - 4/26/2012, 8:06 AM
Cap has become a bully.
GUNSMITH - 4/26/2012, 8:06 AM
HERE WE GO AGAIN
tomasocelot - 4/26/2012, 8:09 AM
hey look its turned into a wolverine emotional story. Hmm last i remember wolverine wasn't married to jean, has no relationship to hope, cable, cyclops. Here we go poor logan boo hoo. I hope cap kicks the living crap out of him.
PaulRom - 4/26/2012, 8:10 AM
Yeah the punch felt very sudden.

The series is pretty good so far. Not near as memorable as Civil War, but it's rather fun. Art needs a lot of work though.
hush - 4/26/2012, 8:13 AM
Since when did Cap smack people for 'not listening'.

That's pretty poor.
MarkJulian - 4/26/2012, 8:13 AM
Sudden? Try completely out of nowhere.
ClarkFarley2012 - 4/26/2012, 8:14 AM
Damn Cap getting gangsta!!
BmanHall - 4/26/2012, 8:17 AM
I very against voting for Wolverine vs whoever-the-[frick], but Cap would definitely lose this fight.
bigkev12 - 4/26/2012, 8:17 AM
Wow this whole storyline is turning into a avengers bad x-men good type story, and now Cap one of the most noble characters in the marvel u the guy even gods will cede too pearl harbors an allie?? Marvel just keeps falling deeper and deeper into a hole
Gmoney84 - 4/26/2012, 8:18 AM
Dr. Strange looks like crap.
SuperAdaptoid - 4/26/2012, 8:18 AM
Uggghh. seems to just be getting worse and worse. if this doesnt get any better i wont be giving marvel any more of my money for these big cross over events.

QUITEMASSIVE - 4/26/2012, 8:20 AM
that dont make any sense that he would come out like that must be more to it
StrangerX - 4/26/2012, 8:24 AM
Wolverine's gonna teach Cap to respect his elders
HellsHammer - 4/26/2012, 8:29 AM
I really hate the art
kevberg - 4/26/2012, 8:30 AM
Don't see all the fuss...Wolvie is wolvie here-- doing whatever it takes to stop the phoenix force to save people and Cap fighting over the value of life.

If anything, the only out of character thing here is Cap PUNCHING Wolvie...he knows better than that. ( adamantium skeleton and all )
Ha1frican - 4/26/2012, 8:31 AM
Cover art is fantastic but just look at Rulk and Iron Man... awful
Reverend - 4/26/2012, 8:33 AM
This is completely out of character for Cap. This entire run is predicated on one well known Marvel character fighting another over a (let's face it) a flimsy plot. Here's the formula:

1) "Phoenix Force, Phoenix Force, blah blah blah"
2) "What? You bastard!"
3) -Commence fight-

How long will it be before Spider-Woman and Spider-Man fight? They will, at Latveria most likely before or after they fight Dr. Doom.

The marketing campaign should have been:

"AvX: Everyone will fight everyone else! It will be the Civil War times one thousand infinity!(please buy our books, we're running out of ideas fast like Fox)."

its probably just the Crap JR JR art Doc Strange's new costume looks pretty damn good when other artists draw it.
hoodedjester - 4/26/2012, 8:35 AM
somehow I have the feeling wolverine is gonna end up fighting for both sides. The artwork isn't fantastic either
DarthTesla - 4/26/2012, 8:41 AM
[frick] yeah, can't wait!

Even though I've seen Cap kick Wolverine's ass a couple times before.
SpideyQuad - 4/26/2012, 8:44 AM
This is just bad writing, Capt. America more than anybody should know you can't take out with a punch. It makes no sense to incite Logan in such a small area as a quintet. I haven't read the comics (or any for that matter in the past few years because I thought the story sucked, I see that hasn't changed) but I can imagine the other AvsX are just as forced. People or should I say heroes that have worked together so long would never act this way. They would no tendencies and understand they need to talk things through. In the old days the writer would've came up with something unique because the heroes to fight each other.

A shame what's happened the comics. The writing sucks, art stinks, and you have to pay through the nose. Thank God I was born in a different era otherwise I never would've enjoyed the day when quality ruled. My sympathies go out to you young guys. My advice to you is invest in the back issues, until the quality improves. Well, at least we have the movies to look forward to.
AlcoholicA - 4/26/2012, 8:45 AM
I can only handle JrJr in small doses. WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY GIVE HIM THIS UBER EVENT?
Wildaniel - 4/26/2012, 8:46 AM
I will be getting the variant cover by Sara Pichelli.

elessarundomiel2382 - 4/26/2012, 8:51 AM
@Gusto Spider Man is not wearing sneakers, Red Hulk's wearing pants that are not ripped. Personally they need to get back Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. This artwork sucks. I prefer artwork that looks believable and realistic.
MassExecutions - 4/26/2012, 8:54 AM
FORCED.
elessarundomiel2382 - 4/26/2012, 8:55 AM
I know its Romita but come on this typre of artwork was only hip in the 70s 80s
duncboy - 4/26/2012, 9:04 AM
What a completely dumb bit of writing here....
Capt: Let's go stop the flaming bird! Ya! Let's go Logan!
Wolv: Sounds good to me.
Capt: Logan, I won't let you kill someone.
Wolv: Then we'll all die
Capt: Drats! I have no other conceivable way to change your opinion on this now other than to PUNCH YOU IN THE FAAAAAAAAAACE!!!!

I mean really, this is the best Marvel can do for a big event? I've seen some pretty piss poor scripting before, but this is just flat out stupid and ridiculous.
uman347 - 4/26/2012, 9:06 AM
I have a level of respect for John JR, he used to be an amazing artist, look at his work in the 80's and 90's and early 00's even after he started his signature squared off box like style, it used to be really good, idk if he is getting tierd of the work he does are if he is being lazy, or he just has alot on his plate and has to rush things out..idk..his art has been bad here in the past few years....it makes me sad tbh, cause he is a great artist
elessarundomiel2382 - 4/26/2012, 9:09 AM
He did say "Damn it I didnt want it to come to this." so even Cap didnt appreciate what he was going to do. But someone that cant be reasoned with with words has to be punched. Cap doesnt slap.
JackSass - 4/26/2012, 9:16 AM
Agreed. pretty sorry writing.

I think they just wanted to have the two of them fight.
write33 - 4/26/2012, 9:20 AM
Cap hit him for not listening??

good thing he doesn't have kids....
PsyGuy - 4/26/2012, 9:26 AM
God Wolverine is annoying...

RolandD - 4/26/2012, 9:37 AM
How original-Marvel heroes fighting Marvel heroes.
ralfinader - 4/26/2012, 9:47 AM
I like it. Cap knows there is only one way to make a point with Wolvie.
KaneVonDoom - 4/26/2012, 10:22 AM
Please please fire JRJR
revloveR - 4/26/2012, 10:40 AM
wolverine looks tiny. he's short, but he's a brick shit house.
SpiderJerusalem - 4/26/2012, 10:56 AM
"art" by john romita
SamSpade527 - 4/26/2012, 11:02 AM
John Romita's art is so squared off and box-like. Its like a kid is drawing. This is not good enough for an event so hyped to be as epic as this one. Definately an eyesore and brings the quality of this series way down
