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!

The book only contains: Avengers vs. X-Men 0-12 and Point One (AVX story).

The following is not in the book: AVX: VS 1-6, Avengers vs. X-Men: Infinite 1, 6, 10. And the code for the free digital cpy is not in it either.

Underrated by many people. This is one of my favorite hardcovers which I keep coming back to over and over. Has some avengers moments that stand out above all else and stay with you long after having finished the book. It's always risky taking heroes and turning them into the story's villains in a cross over like this, but Bendis nailed it. I can't recommend this enough.

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.

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.
