Spanning nearly 50 minutes, Marvel has made their "AvX" live event available to watch again in case you missed it earlier today. Plenty of details about the event are revealed and teased in the following video, while the conversations shared between the editors and writers are often very amusing (Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction in particular share a very amusing exchange in the last few minutes of the live blog). There is currently no embed code available so click on the image below to check it out.





The Avengers and X-Men have learned that the all-powerful embodiment of both death and rebirth known as the Phoenix Force is on a crash course for Earth…and it needs a new host to unleash its immeasurable power. But what is the shocking decision tied to the Phoenix’s return that will pit the Avengers against the X-Men? And when good friends become bitter enemies, what does this mean for the future of the Marvel Universe?

ah well, event looks good, will watch the vid when home from work later. good times. I will probably pick up the trade.

And this is how Norman Osborne takes over again....the heroes need to get their head out of their ass and focus on the real bad guys. I hope this isn't a big ass let down.
tomasocelot - 12/7/2011, 3:05 PM
if the x-men don't take the avengers then im done with marvel forever. and if this cross-over event is a lame ass wolverine event im also done. Can you please step it up and put the time and effort into your other characters. My dream is that cyke recuits sabretooth for his team.

Pretty cool. It's nice to know the people behind the comics.

@ joshw

nice one mate.

this definetly sounds like the comic event of 2012,five top writers with three top artists giving us a fight between the two greatest superhero teams ever!

count me in,i normally just buy trades nowadays but i might have to get the comics for this.

IRON MAN VS MAGNETO!!!

I don't get the whole premise of having superheroes fighting superheroes. Being they are using Magneto and Juggernaut I take it that they are looking at the whole X-Men title characters taking on the Avengers and not just the actual X-Men.

Thor and Hulk would be pretty tough for any X-Men to take down. If they have Silver Surfer aid the Avengers like he has periodically, then X-Men wouldn't stand a chance and it is only logical that Silver Surfer is part of the Avengers if Juggernaut is allowed to be part of the X-Men.
shadow314 - 12/7/2011, 4:39 PM
@ranger...

That juggernaut isn't Marko. It is Colossus. The power of the cytorak left Marko during Fear Itself and went to Colossus.

Colossus is an X-man

Therefore...

the "new juggernaut" is Colossus and an X-man

You know,with every other character in the damn pic,I can't tell who's on who's side!!!

LMAO Wildaniel. :D

Marvel may again be repeating this 'Team vs. Team' thing (already done with Cap vs. Iron Man in Civil War, and Cyclops vs. Wolverine in Schism), but I think this too will be epic.

And Team Avengers, anyway. :)

I like X-Men, but I like reading about the Avengers more. I'll be cheering for the Avengers. Besides, whatever side Spider-Man chooses is going to be the right side of morality. BOOYA!

Either way, haters can hate all they want, and complain about superheroes fighting other superheroes. I'm so psyched about this event. It's the sorta versus match that a typical comic book fan has always speculated on. Now we finally get to see it play out.
TheMaster - 12/8/2011, 12:02 AM
I'd like to see a book in the vein of Civil War: Frontline telling us what the villains are doing with the time that heroes are fighting amongst themselves - surely they don't just sit on their arses, they would surely see the opportunity for unopposed villainy - and the effects that it has on the population of the MCU and how they think of the heroes who have abandoned them for their own "petty arguments". Failing that, how about looking about how the second tier heroes react to suddenly having to step up and take on the big bads because their colleagues are too busy trying to kill each other... just a thought
pepe - 12/8/2011, 12:13 AM
Hope they show an epic fight. Not like the x-men vs the dark avengers where they didn´t show the fight between Arcangel and Dark Wolverine.
marvel72 - 12/8/2011, 4:40 AM
at the start of the video it looks the show some of the match ups.....

captain america vs wolverine
iron man vs magneto
hawkeye vs cyclops
the thing vs colossus/juggernaunt
daredevil vs archangel

& i think i saw red hulk vs rogue but i may of been mistaken.
IMerier - 12/8/2011, 7:24 AM
this will depend on who sides with which sides since a lot of members of both teams are mutants and have served in both like Wolverine, Storm, Namor, and Beast. All of these heroes have been on both teams at one time or another.
niknik - 12/8/2011, 10:25 AM
Seeing as we JUST went thru all this with The Avengers Children Quest storyline and them fighting over the Scarlet Witch, my money is on the Phoenix Force coming for Wanda.
niknik - 12/8/2011, 10:26 AM
Put Thor and Hulk back in the Avengers where they belong and it's no contest.
