Avengers vs. X-Men #9 Review
Only 3 more to go…
Avengers vs. X-Men, gets better with every issue. The Story is so intense and the artistry is so beautiful. The characters are so awesome. I’d almost hate to see it go in 3 issues. This is by far one of the best mini series events, I’ve ever read.
By the cover of this issue, it is evident that something is going to happen to Spidey. I’ve never liked Spider-man as a super hero. He makes too many jokes and at the wrong times. He always seems to be happy. The only time I’ve seen him show some real emotions is in The Amazing Spider-Man #120 and #121, where he looses Gwen Stacy to Green Goblin.
This issue has a good balance of drama and story. We know that the majority of Cap Am’s Avengers are in captivity of the Phoenix Five (Technically 4, as Namor is out). They have captured Thor too. This issue mainly focuses on Spidey. He talks about how some of the Avengers never return. That was a very sad scene. Then Once they go to get Thor back, there is a very awesome fight scene between Colossus with his sister and Spidey, this happens due to Spidey sacrificing himself for the team. And this scene made me love Spider man again. While fighting with them, he provokes Colossus to fight his sister. And in the end they take them selves out, and Cap brings Spider-Man back through the portal and Cyclops comes to take Hope back ‘home’
Kubert gives us some wonderfully detailed artwork. Jason knows how to use Kubert to his advantage. The scene where Colossus and Emma meet in the desert was just beautiful.
