As fan anticipation for “Avengers vs X-Men” continues to build, Marvel has provided CBR News with an exclusive first look at Ed McGuinness’ third issue cover for “AvX” sister series, “AvX: Vs.” Billed by Marvel as “All fights, All the time!” “Vs.” #3 promises a throwdown between Black Widow and Magik as depicted by Chris Yost and Terry Dodscon while the Thing takes on a Cittorak-powered Colossus in a battle presented by Jeph Loeb and cover artist McGuinness.
During the initial announcement for the series, Executive Editor Tom Brevoort emphasized both the importance of “AvX: Vs.” to the overall “AvX” storyarc as well as the fact that it is where fans should expect to go for the hardest hitting asects of the summer event. “In a nutshell, as we’ve said in the past, in ‘Avengers vs. X-Men,’ we’re only doing tie-ins in our core Avengers and X-Men titles,” Brevoort said. “‘AvX: Vs.’ is the least essential read of ‘AvX,’ but it will probably be the most bestselling. It is literally the fight book,” he said, explaining that the series would expand the battles seen in the main pages of “AvX.”
