It’s A Battle Royale On The Cover Of ‘Avengers Vs X-Men’ #1

Posted Monday, January 16th, 2012 06:00 pm GMT -5 by

A couple of days ago, Marvel released a handful of teaser images for the upcoming  2012 ‘Avengers vs X-Men’ 12-issue maxi-series.

Today, Marvel released the cover to the first issue of the series. The cover, by Jim Cheung (‘Young Avengers’), features the two teams facing off. And while, they’re not paired off with specific opponents as they were in the teasers, at least now we know which team Wolverine has sided with. And his decision cements my prediction that the Avengers will trounce Marvel’s Mighty Mutants without breaking a sweat.

Here’s Marvel’s official press release on ‘Avengers vs X-Men’ #1:

This April, prepare for the biggest super hero war in comics history as Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the jaw-dropping cover to Avengers Vs. X-Men #1 by superstar artist Jim Cheung! From the powerhouse creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Matt Fraction, Jonathan Hickman, Ed Brubaker, John Romita Jr., Adam Kubert and Olivier Copiel comes a groundbreaking event pitting Earth’s Mightiest against the X-Men with the entire Marvel Universe at stake. Cyclops and his team believe the arrival of the Phoenix Force will save mutantkind, but Captain America is convinced it will destroy the world! But who is right? Don’t miss out on all the action in Avengers Vs. X-Men #1 in comic shops worldwide and on the Marvel Comics app this April!

    My money is on the Avengers… at the very least they have 2 X-Men on their team.

    Sorry, but my vote is neither. Never been a fan of Avengers or X-Men. Come to think of it I don’t really like any superhero teams.

      That’s only because Frank Castle isn’t on any of them. :P
