So, I read Point One. Some intriguing things coming,

In no particular order:

  • In a future event, Ultron has taken over the world from the looks of it.
  • There's a race that wants to kill The Watcher since he sees horrors and does nothing.
  • Kaine is the new Scarlet Spider.
  • Just like everyone knew would happen, The Phoenix is back. It kills Terrax and his planet. However, no sign necessarily of Jean

Marvel Comics pits 'Avengers vs. X-Men' in 2012

It's probably going to be a long time before the Avengers face off against the X-Men on a big screen near you.

However, comic-book fanboys only have to wait until spring for a full-scale war between Marvel Comics' two most popular superhero groups and movie franchises.

Avengers vs. X-Men is Marvel's major event series next year, running 12 biweekly issues and featuring five of the industry's most influential writers: Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman and Matt Fraction.

"It's one of those legendary ideas: What if the Avengers fought the X-Men? It doesn't get much easier to describe than that," Brubaker says.

Kicking off in a special "zero issue" prologue in March written by Bendis and Aaron, Avengers vs. X-Men begins the next month with an extinction-level event barreling its way toward Earth, namely the cosmic entity of death and rebirth known as the Phoenix Force. It's looking for a new host who will possess all of its power, which may or may not be the mutant teenager Hope Summers.

Cyclops, Wolverine, Magneto and the other X-Men want to protect her and prepare her if she's to be the new Phoenix. Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man and their fellow Avengers want her handed over to them so they can figure out what to do with her and keep the world safe from a potentially fiery fate.

Suffice it to say, tensions — and fisticuffs — arise.

"You've got two populations whose motivations are simple and understandable and defensible," says Axel Alonso, Marvel's editor in chief. "That's part of the beauty of this. You're seeing a story that evolves out of 'What would you do?' "

Of Marvel's recent annual events, Fraction says this is the one that will most appeal to hardcore comics fans as well as mainstream pop-culture mavens who've seen all four X-Men movies and the films featuring Thor, Captain America and Iron Man that have been leading up to the release of The Avengers in May.

"They've become two huge franchises that the average Joe on the street knows just from movies and cartoons and everything else," Aaron adds.

But you won't see Avengers vs. X-Men on a movie poster anytime soon, Bendis promises. "If you want to see it, come look what comics does because there are things we do better than anybody. And this is one of them."

According to CBR, Brian Michael Bendis will be leaving The Avengers in 2012.

Personally, I think he should have left when Siege brought The Avenges books to a close in 2010. It seemed like a good place to end, in that The Avengers, though morning loses, were back on top of the world. What I've read since then (which is admittedly little) has seemed like he's running on fumes.
