Avengers Vs. X-Men #0 Cover Revealed!

The more I think about it, the more excited I am for Avengers vs. X-Men. I know some people are saying it's unoriginal, or been done before, or is easy entertainment plot fluff. But y'know what? That's what I read comics for! I love these characters and their powers and their goals and their families, and seeing them split down the middle, going head to head over the fate of their loved ones and the safety of the world? That's just good clean fun.

Plus it occurred to me that never in Avengers or X-Men history have their respective teams been so large. Even when the world had millions of mutants, there were never this many united and on the team and living and fighting together. Likewise, the Avengers have had multiple teams before, and reserve members, but never three active at once on top of a school run by veteran faculty. Besides, if you read a Bendis Avengers reboot, you'll see a double spread page with all the heroes Steve Rogers picks to join the franchise. And it turns out that man is not very picky. So the potential conflict is bigger and more widespread than I thought at first.

Anyway, the point is Marvel released the cover for next years Avengers Vs. X-Men prologue focusing on Hope Summers and Wanda Maximoff! Pretty cool, right? Hit the jump for the official press release.

This March, fans worldwide cannot miss the prologue to the biggest pop culture comic event of the year as Marvel is pleased to unveil the trade dress and cover to Avengers VS. X-Men #0! Just before the Avengers and the X-Men go head to head, superstar creators Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron & Frank Cho set up the crucial roles of the Scarlet Witch and Hope Summers in the coming storm. With all eyes on Wanda and the Mutant Messiah, both sides have already made up their mind on where allegiances SHOULD lie …but what about those caught in the middle? The drums of war are beating and fans should be ready for the essential opening to the event that will change everything you know about the Marvel Universe in Avengers VS. X-Men #0!
