YES! Thank you Mr. Hickman, Thank you! Ladies and Gentlemen, we finally have a worthy story! After a couple months of decent issues and pretty good tie-ins, Avengers VS X-Men #6 is a comic you should not miss.
In this issue, the Phoenix Five (sounds like a boy band, if you ask me), have gone to Earth, and are not destroying it. At least not yet. They’re actually making it a better place. To what ends is unknown, but it’s pretty cool. If you’re just joining us, the Phoenix Five are Phoenix possessed/empowered versions of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Colossus, Magik and Namor. It’s pretty cool stuff. They go as far as giving the UN an ultimatum: no more war, or else. That ‘else’ has everyone scared out of their minds.
As revealed by this cover, Wanda finally makes her appearance, and it’s a good reminder of why she’s not to be messed with. After a confrontation between the Avengers and the Phoenix Five about custody of Hope, she swoops in and forces a standstill. Until tomorrow. What happens tomorrow? If you’ve been paying attention, issue #7 is the long awaited (at least by me) “No More Avengers” issue. Should be exciting stuff.
For so long we’ve been waiting for Marvel to tell the story they’ve been wanting to tell. With Avengers VS X-Men #6, I feel they’ve finally begun that story. It’s a very worthwhile issue. Don’t miss it.
