'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
Are the Avengers now bigger than the X-men in pop culture?
Once they figure out the right choice of actual X-men to use, I'm sure the X-characters can be back on top again. I'm very curious for the new "The first X-men" book coming out. They maybe reinventing the characters ala' Ultimitize them a bit. Without the Ultimate influence, I doubt Avengers would be where it is today.
Still, the Avengers movies have been FAR BETTER then the X-men. This is the first billion dollar movie for Marvel! It was done by the Avengers, not the X-men! This is Avatar level movie with hype and sales. It's big.
The X-men have never been on this level. I'm sorry. That's the truth. Maybe fox will pull it together with 2nd Class and the Wolverine.
The Avengers is no were near the level of hype Avatar had, Avatar hype was crazy...people wanted to kill themselves because they couldn't live in the world of that movie. It's also got over another billion to go before it comes close to Avatar sales, so it isn't Avatar big.
