Avengers #29 (A traitor to your own people Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Aug 18, 2012 10:04 am

This AvX tie-in is one of those ‘between the panels’ type-deals, where we see something from a previous story from a new perspective and find out something we didn’t know before. This issue basically takes the events of Wolverine & The X-Men #12 and shows them not from the X-Men and Rachel Summers’ perspective, but from the Avengers’. Spider-Woman comes to the realisation that part of the reason the Avengers are getting their butts kicked is that the X-Men have telepaths, and therefore know what they are going to do before they do it. The solution: take out Rachel Summers. What follows is the same fight we saw in W&XM, drawn very well by the legend that is Walt Simonson, but with the added twist that the Avengers have got Charles Xavier onside. This is a shock, the founder of the X-Men, the X himself, fighting against his students. Even though at the end of things he erases everyone’s memories so they forget he was ever there, it was still powerful stuff, especially when married with the events of the most recent New Avengers (and the last page of this week’s AvX). Professor X looks to finally be back to taking centre-stage in the X-Men Universe, which probably means he’s about to die (again). Oh well.

Y'know what was nice about this issue? We got a totally badass Chuck Xavier for the first time in years! Well played!

If he has to go out, it would be nice if it wasn't as a feeble chump. This was a big step in the right direction.

Or get crippled.. what usually means with Chuck being a bad ass. He'll either die or be crippled.

Bendis is clearly saving his A-game for the NA tie-ins. This issue (and the previous 3 as well) was ass.

Totally agree.

NA is probably the best it's ever been.
