[quote@Cylon1101 [quote@squirrel This actually looks like a good mini cross-over event. The first X-Avengers in a long while if I recall correctly. The dopeness is that this, I think, leads directly into the Dark X-Men title that is supposed to take over the Uncanny book (this summer?) soon. If you pick up X-men regularly, thi is probably gonna hold some integral storyline material so it would be a good idea to cop so as to not lose continuity, especially as it's it's written by Fraction and pencilled by Silvestri and Bianchi (the hands-down best story boarder in the industry right now)!!![/quote] I thought I read that Dark X-Men is taking over what is now X-Men: Legacy.[/quote] look for the Dark X-Men posts, a lot of input on that. but I read an interview (with Matt Fraction I think) somewhere that led me to believe it was gonna be Uncanny.

based from the cover, looks like Osborn will turn against Emma afterall.This should be exciting, who dies?Wonder if there will be anyone though.

Well, that cover is a LOT better than the other one. Man, I hope they release that as a comic shop poster so I can hang it up in my cubicle right next to Uncanny 500's Turner cover.

Really looking forward to this!!! So many characters from Osborn's Avengers and the X-Men are tied into this series that it should be a great read! :x-men:
