3.0 out of 5 stars AvX invades!
Goddammit, I hate "Avengers Vs. X-Men" so much! Like a black hole of crap, it's managed to suck in one of the Marvel U's brightest stars and cover it in its garbage. That means this once charming series now has that awful "AVX" logo on it and the funny, creative stories are replaced with the soulless tedium of superheroes beating on each other. It's soooooo horrendously...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent instalments in the latest X-Men series, 8 April 2013

This review is from: Wolverine & the X-Men by Jason Aaron - Volume 3 (Wolverine and the X-Men (Unnumbered)) (Paperback)
This volume reprints issues #9-13 of this strand of the X-Franchise, as the AvX event reaches Westchester, and the staff of the school have to chose sides. The Phoenix is on its way to Earth to collect its next host, and, while the main AvX action is taking place elsewhere, seen in cameos, we get to meet the Shi'ar Death Commandos who come looking for Hope and meet her and Wolverine; we see the back-story of the Deathbird who is trying to get Kid Gladiator off-Earth while there is still time; we see the Angel's next big step; and we see Gladiator himself taking on the new `souped-up' X-Men. It doesn't end well, and will hopefully be continued next issue, and not in another AvX title.

3.0 out of 5 stars AvX invades!, 2 Jan 2013

Goddammit, I hate "Avengers Vs. X-Men" so much! Like a black hole of crap, it's managed to suck in one of the Marvel U's brightest stars and cover it in its garbage. That means this once charming series now has that awful "AVX" logo on it and the funny, creative stories are replaced with the soulless tedium of superheroes beating on each other. It's soooooo horrendously boring.

Most of the book is taken up with both side's leaders, Captain America and Cyclops, approaching Wolverine to join their ranks. Phoenix is on its way (again) and the last time it appeared, Logan had to kill it so they're expecting it to play out the same way again. Having read "Avengers Vs. X-Men", the main story arc, I know Logan doesn't play nearly as big a role as its made out in this book so reading this with Cyclops/Cap both stating their boring cases, page after page, was immensely dull. Then there's some arbitrary fighting, and that's basically the book for 4 of the 5 issues.

The final issue unexpectedly and brilliantly delves into the backstory of a character who's remained on the periphery of this series - Warbird, Kid Gladiator's Shi'Ar Elite body guard. She's an unlikely choice to be the focus in the midst of a group made up of colourful personalities but Jason Aaron does a fine job giving her a personality, an intriguing backstory, and detail on the Shi'Ar homeworld. Beautifully drawn by Nick Bradshaw who is quickly becoming the best artist in this series, outshining Chis Bachalo's freewheeling kinetic style.

In keeping with the series' tone, this book has moments of levity and humour in between the overly serious, incredibly overbearing (overboring?) AVX storyline. But the event manages to derail the series' playful and interesting story threads to the side so Aaron and co. are forced to address it constantly. Some nice moments and a decent final issue aside, "Vol 3" is an unfortunate victim of Marvel's latest godawful event. Here's hoping normal service resumes soon.
