    I'm sure that the actual crossover event is really interesting, based on what I'm reading about it, but this volume is kinda awesome too. Okay, a bit too much of the female characters' breasts, but epic amounts of snark and some cool fights. And. And. A-Babies vs X-Babies, which I've seen some scans of, but never the whole thing. Yay for Bucky Bear! This gets four stars mostly on the strength of that.

    Ugh. Even less point to this than the general A vs X crossover series. Each issue consists of a couple of battles. That's it. Nothing more. Each battle plays out for a few pages and then the next one starts. It's like a video game or board game with many-sided dice where various matchups of characters are put together. Who would win in a fight, Iron Man or Magneto? If that sounds interesting to you, you might like this. Otherwise, it's hard to imagine a bigger waste of time, space, and the artis Ugh.

    Is it weird that I found the irreverent nature of this book a little too irreverent? Or like, I would prefer my Avengers vs X-Men irreverence to be a little more nuanced? All this ROUND ONE FIGHT! stuff was really well done when it informed the conclusion of X-Statix -- but brother, you ain't no X-Statix. Nonetheless I'm a fan of the whole A v X saga, and cannot begrudge this well-drawn book for its inclusion of more face-punching into the already liberally-endowed facepunchingness of Avengers v Is it weird that I found the irreverent nature of this book a little too irreverent?

An utterly superfluous, but very pretty batch of herotoons.

    A refreshingly simple idea: when a crossover is based around two sets of characters punching each other, have a spin-off which is all punching, no plot. Except they messed up slightly, because some of the joke strips here accidentally make more sense than the 'because we said so' plot and the characterisation shifts necessitated thereby in the main series...

    I vaguely understand the Avengers vs X-Men crossover, which kinda forgot that over the years, many mutants were members of the Avengers, as they fought over the Phoenix force or something like that. This is not that story. Instead, it's a bunch of brawls between members of the Avengers and members of the X-Men. As such, there's very little substance, some really strange outcomes, and vague references I didn't get. But it features Ben Grimm wisecracking as he fights Namor, Captain America clobbering I vaguely understand the Avengers vs X-Men crossover, which kinda forgot that over the years, many mutants were members of the Avengers, as they fought over the Phoenix force or something like that.

It also includes Skottie Young's A-Babies vs X-Babies, which is a cute parody of the entire series. Nothing to write home about, but I got some laughs out of it. You might, too.

    Just worth of a 5*, like the book says in issue #1, more about fighting than plot, but fighting is like the reason we read these books so... and the plot🙄, we read it for many different reasons but honestly it had plot, so I loved it. A-babies vs. x-babies was also a smashing good time mates!

    Reading anything with Avengers vs. X-Men just gives me whiplash because it’s just the Avengers being mutantphobic while Clint and Gambit flirt.

    This was interesting enough to keep me amused. The 6th issue was very funny and the A v X - babies were hilarious. All in all a quick and fun read.

    Great hero vs hero battle scenarios, and a fun X-babies vs Avenger babies battle at the end. Highly recommend to any Marvel fan.

    Have you ever wished for less story and more fighting? If so than this book is for you! This volume is a collection of just the AVX fights with none of the Marvel Event context, it's a bit like sitting back and watching people play Marvel VS Capcom only with less Capcom and the fighters skill and abilities don't matter...

This volume is a collection of just the AVX fights with none of the Marvel Event context, it's a bit like sitting back and watching people play Marvel VS Capcom only with less Capcom and the fighters skill and abilities don't matter... Some of the fights were mildly interesting and tied directly to the AVX event while others were short little humorous takes on the battles. The final story recreated a huge Avengers vs X-Men battle but with babies... baby Marvel characters...which is cute-ish...I guess? Some of the fights were absolutely ridiculous. For example there was a 1 page story where Toad "fights" Jarvis...I mean really? Even though it is supposed to be comedic I couldn't help but feel bad for Toad, I mean he can't even beat Jarvis? I also didn't care for the Spider-Woman vs Women of X-Men in which Hawkeye is basically imagining Spider-Woman in sexual comprising positions with Emma Frost and Storm... I found it annoying and demeaning but maybe that's just because I'm NOT a Hawkeye fan. I guess if it were Green Arrow fantasizing about Black Canary taking on Wonder Woman and Batgirl I'd be fine with it....TEAM GREEN ARROW! What I really find unforgivable was the battle between Black Panther and Storm. Who wants to watch a man punch his wife in the face? Even if she is a superhero it is a little tough to watch. I think they still could have fought without hurting each other, something a little more clever than beating each other in the face maybe.... Some of the final results of matches were a bit questionable...The Thing beat Namor...underwater?! Nevertheless it was a fun read with some interesting matches, I particularly enjoyed Thor vs Emma Frost and Daredevil vs Psylocke. I highly recommend this book if you love shutting down your brain or are looking for the thrill of AVX without all the baggage.

    Vs was a mini series made up of 6 issues. Each issues contained 2 battles. These weren't comics driven by plot and complex ideas. They were comics driven by battles. Some are really good, and have incredible art. The final showdown between Hope and Scarlet Witch comes to mind. This one was done 'Marvel Style' by Kieron Gillen and Jim Cheung. Jim Cheung on interior art is always a good thing, and him working 'Marvel Method' (or Marvel Style) really gives him freedom to breath with his art. There's Vs was a mini series made up of 6 issues.

There's also the opening battle between Magneto and Iron Man that stands out. This one was written by Jason Aaron and pencilled by Adam Kubert. You'd think a fight between these two would be short, but you'd be wrong. Both Aaron and Kubert do well with the situation. There is also a Captain America and Gambit battle, written and drawn by Steve McNiven. This is a very visual short, which shouldn't come as a surprise. It doesn't make it bad, it just stops it from standing out. The Thing vs Colossus, by Loeb and McGuinness, isn't very good. The creative team behind the hit Red Hulk fail to recapture the creative flow they've had on previous titles. Personally, I'd splash out for the 500 page Avengers vs X-men book, which includes this 'Vs' mini series, as well as the main AvX title. But that's just me.

    I read this after reading the main AVX storyline and honesty I think that some of the battles should have been in the main one as they literally are just not in it just so it's here for example hope and scarlet witch their battles the whole build up and aftermath is in the main story but cutting out the middle bit sucked. I thought it was funny and interesting but as it went on some of them were clearly starting to question it and so it became a little less epic.

I thought it was funny and interesting but as it went on some of them were clearly starting to question it and so it became a little less epic. I still enjoyed it, it was defiantly interesting, who would beat who, wasn't too keen on a lot of the dialog being in Russian I don't want to have to pull up something to translate what I'm reading, how hard is it to just say it's in Russian and write it in English? I rated it because as a companion to the main series I think it complements it really well. I didn't rate it as a stand alone thing. Honestly there is a lot of fighting in AVX already and this is a ton more so that might explain why they didn't want to include it all.

    Avengers Versus X-Men: Vs is a functional but uninspiring graphic novel anthology. The series shows several fights in detail within the context of the Marvel event series Avengers Versus X-Men. The original event series itself was a huge mess with too many different writers and artists creating a mostly incoherent and unwieldy miniseries. The same holds true for this collection. Some of the fights are brilliantly executed action scenes with clear emotional stakes. Others are lackluster affairs w Avengers Versus X-Men: Vs is a functional but uninspiring graphic novel anthology.

Some of the fights are brilliantly executed action scenes with clear emotional stakes. Others are lackluster affairs with no stakes and ho-hum action. Additionally, a few of the stories in this collection feature borderline objectionable depictions of women, which undermines the work's ability to reach the widely growing audience of female comic book readers. Most of the art is pretty good, but it is often nice window dressing for surface-level only stories. Overall, I would not recommend this volume.

    Don't think that you HAVE to read this in order to understand the whole point of Avengers vs. X-Men. It's really just an expansion of the overall war between the two teams to show what happened during other smaller battles between characters (Archangel vs. Hawkeye, Black Widow vs. Magik, Iron Man vs. Magneto, etc.). It's not a bad read, and some parts are pretty enjoyable and fun, but you shouldn't expect this to be something that's absolutely necessary to get what's going on in the full AvX sto Don't think that you HAVE to read this in order to understand the whole point of Avengers vs. X-Men.

    Just plain stupid, except for those portions that were stupid AND insulting. Strangely enough the x-babies versus the a-babies was one of the better stupid parts because it was supposed to be stupid. This issue continued the Avenger's way of random stupid combinations of characters for no good reason. And this book explained pretty much nothing, and really didn't move the story along at all. With art that went from fair to not all that bad. Just plain stupid, except for those portions that were stupid AND insulting.

    No. Just don't. Each entry is started with a note from the editors telling you not to worry about story. Plot is for the real Avengers vs. X-Men. This book is just about fights. Sigh. If you want me to read a comic, be it 22 pages for 160, you should care about story. Plot, motivation, character changes. Telling me at the start that fights are all that matter is an insult and a waste of time and talent. Nope. No. Just don't.

    This book is odd. It covers fights that happened in the series Avengers Vs X-Men. Over all I actually enjoyed this more than the series. It reminds me a lot of the TV show Deadliest Warrior. They have a lot of fun and silly pop up windows giving usually somewhat funny facts. Probably my favorite fight was with Daredevil. The book fizzles out though. By the 5th chapter it seemed almost filler material waiting for Avengers Vs X-Men to end. It's worth a read, but not a purchase. This book is odd.

    I totally enjoyed the artwork and the fights. The fight between Daredevil and Psylocke was the best in my opinion. I actually like I was there on scene watching it go down. The fight between Black Panther and Storm was heartbreaking. I say that bacause through the panels we saw their marriage and then it just ended in a few pages. That bothered me.

    I loved the different battle that they choose to highlight. I also really like the AVX facts that they added in there, which gave me some extra info on the characters that were fighting each other. I also like how each battle ended with a clear winner. It was a nice little addition to this whole event. I recommend reading this one as well. =]

    Didn't really see the point to this book. It's just a series of battles, two per issue. The art was very good. I didn't agree with the outcome of most of the battles. If you like action and not much story this book is worth the read. The cartoonish "babies" stories at the end are worthless so beware. Didn't really see the point to this book.

    This book is a series of close ups of fights that happen in Avengers vs Xmen. Some are exactly what you would expect. The highlights are Panther vs Storm, Daredevil vs Psyloke and the cute one with models. It's fun, don't expect anything that will add to your understanding of the main event or characters.
