    She-Hulk vs Rogue? Now that could be an interesting match up.

    EDIT: Lurg the Living Casino? HA!
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    didn't read the interview much, but i caught something about aaron's "big break"...

    who else remembers that wolverine writing contest thing? # 175. i thought aaron's story sucked, to be honest. i felt like i could have done better, would never had predicted his success based off of that.

    i honestly remember thinking about that contest and submitting something...

    it's strange to think about, that's all. props to aaron for doing what he's done.
    and i'm counting 1, counting 2, counting 3...

    Alonso: Spoiler alert: Does anyone really think the Hulk could sit this one out? [Laughter]
    So the Hulk's going to show up in this one after all - cool. I wonder if they're going to hold off until the big finale for him to leap in and save the Avengers.

    That was a great A-I-C. Jason Aaron seems to really love what he does, and it is more than evident in the tone that he has created in WATXM. I hope he can keep the momentum going while the book gets caught up in AvX!

    They've be hinting Hulk would be involved since this story was first announced. It will be cool to finally see him play a heroic role in one of these events. I kept waiting for him to show up in SI to save the day even though he was at odds with everyone at the time.

    Alonso: This is a long story with three HUGE acts, each of which ends with a game-changing moment. A characterís alliance -- a readerís alliance -- might change in the course of the story. If you check out the message boards, youíll see how X-Men fans and Avengers fans are already pledging their allegiance to their team. It'll be interesting to see how many of them stay on their side of the battle lines.

    How many times have we heard that. Marvels idea of game changing moments are weak at best. The last one was Bucky's death.

    The spout this about every bloody event and none of them has changed anything that hasn't been reset and if anything just sets up for the next event.

    The only one that has stuck is No More Mutants. Hell even Giant Man got replaced by his look-a-like nephew.

    It's all just empty hype. If anything Marvel seems afraid to change anything. I fully imagine the whole Schism thing to get resolved by then end of this too before it even got going.

    Why isn't Hulk in AvX?!

    He's neither an Avenger nor an X-Man at the moment.

    I'm more confused by the preview pages. They're all acting like the Phoenix hasn't been aorund since 'Jean' killed herself on the moon in UXM 137. Wolverine even says "Jean killed herself to stop it and that didn't even work". Umm.. that wasn't Jean. It was just the Phoneix posing as her. And not long after Rachel got possession of it and that worked just fine for years. Tony's been looking for the Phoneix force since the "Jean Grey incident"? He couldn't have been looking hard considering how long rachel had it and how often it's shown up in different people over the years.

    Because there was something of Jean in that Phoenix, even if just an echo of the real Jean. That's why she killed herself.

    If nihilism didn't take some delight in destruction one might suspect nihilists were an unnaturally morbid sort.

    I had seen the TomB comment before which is why I was surprised as well. I'm guessing when he said "... at the moment" this'll be the event that puts him on the road to joining the Avengers (AA).

    And Superman, Bruce Wayne, Hal Jordan, Barry Allen and Oliver Queen have remained dead, Barbara Gordon is still in a wheelchair, and the DC multiverse never returned.

    The idea that any change in comics is - or even needs to be - permanent is absurd. Some changes prove to last longer than others but what matters is whether the story in question is enjoyable on its own terms, not whether aspects of it won't be undone at a later date because (with few exceptions), given the serialized nature of comics, they surely will.

    Bucky's death led to a new status quo for both Bucky and Cap. And if Bucky hadn't "died," we wouldn't have the current Winter Solider comic, which looks set to be one of the best reads out there.

    Nothing you said makes anything they keep saying any less empty hype.

    I don't think it is fair to say "well DC does it too" or at least to use it as an excuse.
