Would enjoy it more if it had more feats
Yes uncanny x-men is the best also the x-force series that started after Messiah complex links to Seceond coming which is important and is a sequel to Messiaih Complex. So if you read at least uncanny you would be good but i recomend Messiah Complex and Second Coming they deal with Hope Summers who is key in AVX
For the record, I don't think they should be entirely segregated. I loved reading the older books and seeing random Spiderman cameos and so on. One of my favorite issues of New Mutants involves Magik stealing Captain America's shield. But I think the concepts that drive the X-men franchise and the ones that promote the Avengers don't coexist well together extensively. Something would have to give, and it'd have to be the 'hated and feared' thing, which is kind of a huge thing for the X-men, so...
House of M (where most mutants are depowered)
Messiah Complex (where the first new mutant, Hope, is born)
Utopia (where the X-Men face off against Dark Avengers)
X-Force/Cable: Messiah War (where Cable raises Hope in the future, while chased by Bishop)
Second Coming (when Cable and Hope return to present day and there is a big battle)
Schism (where Cyclops and Wolverine disagree)
Wolverine and the X-Men vol 1 (because it's funny and I laugh when reading it)
Then you would be well prepared for AvX.

Can you all remember to argue without resorting to childish responses please or personal attacks.
You should get useful responses.
But we know someone dies in AvX. You got me thinking though about how "Marvel won't kill Emma" and I just began to agree because it's so obvious that they want Emma to die, plus the "Fatality!" teaser that there has to be some other trick coming. Plus, at this point, Emma and Cyclops are both immortal, and Phoenix leaving a host never kills the host. I mean, does anyone think Peter and Magik were engaged in anything other than a serious fight to the death? Also, we talk about "fatality!" Emma will certainly be killing people will issue 10 is going on... maybe that's who the fatality is. Any superhero that dies, Marvel would call "one of its greatests." I'm sure plenty of posters have already told the Marvel Offices that Emma doesn't fit that bill, so maybe we can breathe a sigh of relief
Cyke hasn't shown a single hint of insanity/villainy yet. Short of Emma biting it, I just don't see what could trigger a Phoenix-level hissy fit.
Nightcrawler, Jean Grey, Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker, Professor X, Mar-Vell, Richard Rider- Bring Them Back!!!
Namor attacked a country. Emma has tried and succeeded in committing murder. Magik wants Wanda dead. Peter wants to marry Kitty. Cyke told the other P5 to stow the murderous s**t.
One of these is not like the others.
So while he hasn't gone crazy and killed or tortured people, Cyclops is complete jerk. Maybe he should've just listened to Hope and Emma? Water under the bridge. Another girlfriend dead, he's Cyclops, he'll put the mask on again, more resolved than ever to make the exact mistakes. And he'll feel proud too!
I actually think he's going to flip out at Hope and Wanda. I think he'll then get beaten up in Kun-Lun (messing with all the Avengers is a terrible idea) and I think he'll leave Kun Lun and realize what Emma has done and that will lead us to a fight. I think the Avengers will then try and take advantage of the confusion and set up Tony's device. I think an Avenger will die heroiclly, but as collateral damage. Although I can see Emma toasting an Avenger or an X-person hawkeye style saying "stay out of this." But I'd hope Marvel wouldn't be that crass to Emma fans! Although they've been pulling some... mess lately
So you are saying that Bendis will do to Cyclops what he did to Wanda? I was actually thinking he'd do to Emma what he did to Wanda. Since Wanda got messed up really fast. "Look at me this whole time I was utterly psychotic!" I felt sorry for Wanda fans (retroactively). I sorta see that happening with Emma and I'm hoping they'll avoid that. I think it's wrong to shutter a character like that. 0-unlikeable in 5 issues! Then death. And then fans can watch Marvel brag about it...
