1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING! PRODUCT NOT AS DESCRIBED! April 15 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The paperback version only includes Avengers VS X-Men #0-12, not every issue in the series as advertised. Had I known this, I would have bought the hardcover version. Thanks for the lack of website management, Amazon!

3.0 out of 5 stars Goes On For Too Long April 16 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've had mixed experiences when it comes to buying collected comic books. You think you are getting more bang for your buck, but more often than not, you wind up wishing you'd spent your $20+ on something else.

Avengers vs. X-Men is not horrible, it's not even bad; it just goes on for far longer than it needs to. DC Comics' 'Flashpoint' managed to cover all the ground it needed to in just six issues and tell a pretty good story, too (which made the supplementary 'World of Flashpoint' comics rather unnecessary). Here, though, we get a twelve-issue (plus two bonus issues) tale that could have been told in half that.

Marvel's two greatest super-teams are duking it out over the ever-powerful Phoenix Force. The Avengers believe it should be destroyed before it can destroy them like it has so many other worlds, while the X-Men want to harness its energy to try and undo the damage done to mutants worldwide. Given their experience with the Phoenix, you'd think the latter would've reconsidered that plan, especially their team leader, Cyclops, who lost his wife to this thing years ago, but acts like a whiny version of Magneto for all of this crossover.

Although the story flows fairly well for the first five issues (or Rounds, ding-ding!), by issue six when the Phoenix takes its...host, everything starts to slow down and we end up with another seven issues of story that could have been told in three.

All that said, the writing and artwork isn't bad. I was afraid that with five different writers and four different artists that things would get pretty choppy, but that, at least, wasn't an issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end does justify the means Dec 18 2012
By Scott Flower TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I honestly do not understand the hate towards this crossover. I was reading it when it came out issue by issue and thought Marvel's Architects were doing an amazing job of bringing new and bold ideas I never would have ever thought of to the table and start things over fresh when it was done. When Marvel first announced AvX I honestly thought it was going to suck. I thought "This is the best you could come up with for this year's crossover? Seriously?" but I was wrong once I read the first issue. The reason my opinion changed in a matter of 32 pages was because (and this is the most important reason so pay attention) the Avengers and the X-Men actually have a legitimate reason to be fighting each other. The Phoenix Force is coming for Hope and everybody knows it's reputation for wanting nothing but destruction. The Avengers want to hide Hope so that they can figure out a way to get rid of the Phoenix Force before it destroys the world, while the X-Men are convinced that with this new power they could reignite the mutant population out of extinction. DOESN'T THAT SOUND LIKE A GOOD REASON?! Throughout the story things just kept getting more and more interesting that I just couldn't wait for the next issue to come out. And by the end of it, things have been laid out perfectly for all of the new series that Marvel has ready for us.

It was really cool to see Marvel's best writers taking turns every issue. You can tell who was writing which issues and how each of them brought something different to the pile of ideas. The art on the other hand is another story in my opinion. The core series has 12 issues and three artists throughout it, John Romita Jr., Oliver Coipel, and Adam Kurbert.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad event, bad crossover. Nov. 27 2012
Format:Hardcover
First off the book is alright in the sense that the bidding, the paper quality is top notch for for the price you pay you get a big amount of material that convers most of the crossover.

Sadly that's where the positives end. This is Marvel's best writers and artists at their worse. This is them trying to take a simple concept that could be summed up in a few sentence and extend and over saturate it endlessly and pointlessly with un-entertaining drama and boring action.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*

Here's what happens:

-The phoenix is coming for hope, the Avengers want to stop it/her and the x-men will stop at nothing to prevent that from happenning because according to them that'll turn her into Jesus Christ the second.
-They fight over that for a few issues until, rejected by Hope, the newly arrived phoenix instead divides itself into 5 x-men.
-The phoenix five kicks the Avenger's butts and them turn on each other to absorb the other's powers.
-With only douchy Cyclops left the heroes (the Avengers) figure out out to put him down but not before he kills Prof X (yeah, he dies, again).

And them, BOOM, you get Marvel now.

Makes me feel like all those great arcs (Messiah complex, messiah wars, second coming) were all for nothing. What started with a bang in House of M ended in a whimper.

My 2 cents, hope I didn't offend anyone.

Also I'm french, forgive me if I wrote something wrong.
