2. Avengers vs. X-Men #3 (by Ed Brubaker, John Romita Jr. and Scott Hanna, based on a plot by Brubaker, Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman, Jason Aaron and Matt Fraction)
So the Phoenix Force is headed to Earth and the X-Men think it is coming for Hope Summers to help restore all mutants. The Avengers don’t want to let that happen. Wolverine, meanwhile, thinks the best solution is to just kill Hope. The Avengers want to capture her, but not kill her. So Wolverine betrays the X-Men and sides with the Avengers. But when they go to find Hope, Cap decides that he can’t have Wolverine around because Wolverine will just try to kill her again. So Cap has to get rid of Wolverine before they get to Hope…
Very cool sequence, although it’d have been interesting to see it conclude. Hanna’s inks look good on JRjr’s pencils. Brubaker certainly “gets” Cap.
1. Captain America #404-405 (by Mark Gruenwald, Rik Levins and a bunch of inkers)
So Cap is investigating a town that turns out to be filled with werewolves. Other “feral” superheroes are drawn to this town, including Wolverine, who gets brainwashed into attacking Cap…
The fight is broken up by one of the bad guys knocking Cap out in the middle of the fight.
However, the NEXT issue, they have a re-match, and this time Cap is a freakin’ WEREWOLF!!
Anything involving Capwolf is automatically pretty awesome, so this fight has to be #1.
Okay, that’s the top five! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
