The story is called Avengers vs. X-Men. I don't think the FF or Doom or a bunch of villains need to be in it. It's like wondering why Thor doesn't show up in Ghost Rider or something and help him defeat his enemies.

Last time I checked, Reed still has being an Avenger on his resume. But that doesn't even matter. It's just asinine to show Tony struggling alone on how to solve everything, when there are numerous eggheads (Reed being the first and foremost) out there who would be more than willing to help.

Just a year ago Tony was in this exact same spot trying to figure out that Feat Itself nonsense. You'd think he'd have learned that two heads are better than one (or is hereally that arragant to think only he can fix it?).

Reed will show up in next week's New Avengers issue... and just because read WAS an Avenger doesn't mean he needs to appear... there are LOTS of former Avengers who aren't in the main series. Plus its not like Tony didn't have 3 other of the biggest minds working with him (Beast, T'Challa and Pym)

REALLY?!
Now I gotta read that.


And as for Storm and Black Panther end of their "author wish fulfillment-where the fuck did they pull that out?" marriage...Reginald Hudlin must be really pissed.

At least they didn't have T'Challa make a deal with the devil to get his marriage erased unlike some people whose names I will not mention( Cough: Peter and MJ).

Agreed, Reed doesn't 'need' to appear. But it sure is stupid not. At lest throw the old 'he's stuck in the Negative Zone' excuse out if you have to, just to cover it..

With this latest issues it's clearly stated that it's been 8 days since Namor visited Wakanda and in all that time Reed Richards, the man who just basically became T'Challa's brother in the latest FF, hasn't done anything? He's easily the most qualified person on the planet at this kind of stuff. And what good are Tony's 'other 3 big guns' when they really haven't done anything (Well, T'Challa did tell Tony that "science fails", so I'm sure that was more helpful than "have you called Reed"?) :lol:

After a few issues that were a little bit less than amazing, this one was a return to form. I’d definitely say that Jason Aaron has written the best parts of this event. The main focus of this issue was Spider-Man, a character who some fans still, after 8 years or so, don’t think should be an Avenger. Hopefully this issue will have changed their minds, he did as he said he would, he stepped up. I do question the reasons why he chose this particular moment to do so, it seemed kind of arbitrary. But that’s just quibbling, because when he stays behind to try and stop Colossus and Magik by himself, it’s just true heroism, and another example of why Spider-Man is one of the greatest characters in all of fiction, when he mentions Uncle Ben… man, that was emotional. I also liked that Aaron continued his excellent use of Colossus in this issue, even while he was beating the crap out Spidey, he still has his doubts, he knows deep down he doesn’t want to do this, but the Phoenix Force is making him do it. We even saw that with Emma Frost in this issue, she has seemed almost unrepentantly bad in this story at points, but the little bit where she asks Cyclops to stop her… it showed the humanity still within her. Of course, the most controversial part of this issue doesn’t involve Spider-Man or Cyclops, but the annulment of the Storm/Black Panther marriage. I’m not going to get all angry at this yet, because I think by the end of this event, they’ll be back together, Storm has switched sides back to the Avengers after all, and she’s the one who led the rescue effort to the Hell-Volcano. That’s how big this event is, it’s got a Hell-Volcano. Summer event comics done right. At the end, Magik and Colossus fight each other, and their bit of the Phoenix goes to Cyclips, who now has the ability to rip through the dimensions and break into K’Un Lun. Holy shit, it just gets bigger.
