They have been attempting to pull of the crossover about 3 years. I initially thought it would be derailed when DC rebooted the universe.

Despite having not read many of the Captain America books, i'm in love with the character. I used to think he was cheesy, but after reading Civil War (over a year ago) the dude has jumped from not liked to one of my top five heroes. So far i'm liking what i've read of him in AvX. Unlike many I enjoyed the Captain America movie a lot as well and liked how Steve Rogers was portrayed.

I'm at "011 Avengers #25", btw.
no, i mean Cyc is a little out of character, but not much. dude has become pretty militant ever since scarlet witch and "no more mutants"

I think I'll start with the Civil War due to the high praise everyone's giving it. Might try 'Animal Man' and mabye a Batman title as well (favorite hero as a kid)

I still think my team worked better as a team(largely do to cable being able to turn into god cable in that situation) but his team was at least as good in individual battles. I think my team was the best team anyone's had in any of the drafts though(and would have been even better had my can trade not been vetoed)

Surprisingly excited for the upcoming Parker-Morales meet and greet.

ONLY if they do it right though. I know they're going to fight due to a misunderstanding (what a twist!), but if they have Morales just in awe of Parker's ability, and Parker commenting on the pure potential of Morales then it COULD work.

I also hope to see two clear perspectives on being Spider-Man.

Now as great as Spider-Man is they have stuggled with having multiple Spideys (Clone Saga) but also done some great, GREAT, GREAT stuff with it (no seriously if you haven't read Spider Island, fucking read it!).

But I may go ahead and find this issue, it's peaked my curiosity.

Oh, can't wait to check that out. Though i haven't read much of Morales in Ultimate and i'm about four issues behind on ASM.

Speaking of Bendis, anyone ever read Scarlet? I dig the overall style, though the sixth issue is forever late.
