  1. The “Consequences” of AvX are that not even the Phoenix Force could make me spend money on this.

    • Im only buying this cause ive only been reading comics for a year now. Otherwise, no. I can see how the whole AvX and Marvel NOW would turn off “veteran” readers.

  2. I’m actually looking forward to reading this. In a perfect world, Kieron Gillen would have had a long uninterrupted run on X-Men.

  3. Kieron Gillen is the fast rising star of Marvel, of that there is no doubt. However, “fallout” arcs are always, always, always not worth reading. If the stories involved were consequential, they would have been in the main event. This’ll probably be a mash up of various characters from both teams looking at the damage done and saying things like: “We have so much power… This is what happens when we lose control…” and nothing will change.

    • I bought this issue on a whim… but it’s not what you describe above.

      If this first issue is any indication, I think this mini-series is setting up Cyclops’ new situation for the foreseeable future, as well as introducing us to a human race that is ready for a new surge of mutants.

      Raney’s art was a bit erratic for my tastes, so I’m kind of glad this doesn’t have a regular artist, but I think Gillen did a very nice job giving us a glimpse at the post-AVX landscape of the Marvel Universe.

      In other words, I went in expecting very little and left pleasantly surprised. I’ll be back next week for #2.

  4. It was also nice to see an indication of a post-AVX direction for Hope. She’s been noticeably absent from any of the Marvel Now announcements I’ve seen so far. I suppose it’s possible that Marvel is putting her on the shelf for a bit, but I think that would be a mistake… she’s been mostly Plot Device Girl for her existence, so I’d love to see her get some real character development.

  5. Why wasn’t Cap wearing his horrible new suit in Uncanny Avengers?

  6. A dog pooped all over my copy 🙁 Oh wait that was the art.

  7. How many issues will this be?

    • 5 weekly issues, I believe. Gillen is writing them all, but the artists are changing (Mark Brooks, Steve Kurth, and Dale Eaglesham are the only names I can come up with at the moment).

  8. I liked the story more than I thought I would but the art looked like something I’d do with friends as “fan-fic” in high school. That being said, I liked our fan-fic stories and the art gave them character so this book was fun.
