  1. Predict the X-Men to take both these fights, but I don’t know much about Magik. Name seems to say it all though.

    Wish they didn’t reuse characters that have already fought in this mini.

  2. I really cannot picture a scenario where Black Widow wins against Magik. I really would have loved to see her fight against Dr. Strange though.

  3. i bet it won’t happen but i really want the thing to win

  4. Agreed with Scorpio on re-using characters, and i LOVE me some Thing, but …

    This is a comic I would have loved as a little kid.

    It’s fun in that way.

  5. I love the fun facts they have in these issues. These have been lots of fun so far.

  6. Glad to see the outcomes be what they were. That double page spread of Colossus standing over the Thing is pretty excellent 🙂

  7. Colossus vs. Thing: 1/5
    Magik vs. Blackwidow: 3/5

    Overall: 2/5

  8. I feel a bit guilty that I enjoyed “Colossus vs The Thing,” but I still believe this mini represents everything that’s wrong with comics. Magik vs The Widow did not make any sense and still can’t believe someone even thought this was the fight no one could wait to see.

  9. Did anyone else have problems with the AR app for this issue? The book stated the AR app could be used to translate the Russian dialogue, but it didn’t work AT ALL for me. Attempted multiple different panels/pages and nothing.

    • you have to hold it up to the individual panels not the full pages like it normally is.

    • I had problems with it too. The app would attempt to load the content, and then I would get an error message (can’t remember exactly what it said). I will probably try again today, and see what happens.
