However, it is fair to make comparisons on how this event is being sold. When one of your catch phrases is "Whose side are you on?", you're going to get questions as to how original this story is going to turn out.
Also, I have give Waid props for trying to sell this event on a deeper level then seeing the Avengers and X-Men fight each other in meaningless fights. I just hope that the themes he's talking about are present in a manner that doesn't make us roll our eyes.
