I don't know what Scott was on about in AvX #1, the X-Men have always been treated the same as everyone else.
Source: Hickman Reveals First Marvel NOW! NEW AVENGERS Details
Today, during a conference call that The Outhouse was not invited to, Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, writer Jonathan, Hickman, Editor-in-chief Axel Alonso, and James Viscardi from marketing discussed Hickman’s upcoming run on Avengers and New Avengers.
Over at that other site, it was reported that when asked what the coolest thing about writing the Avengers was, Hickman responded “The coolest thing is that I’m writing Avengers…It’s a special book. I’m getting to work with a small brigade of Marvel’s best artists.”
Hickman was then informed that there are actually fifteen Avengers books being published by Marvel: Avengers, New Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, Utimate Avengers, Avengers Academy, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Marvel Universe vs. The Avengers, Young Avengers, Avengers Babies, Avengers: The Untold Story, Wolverine and The Avengers, Avengers Assemble, Avenging Avengers, Avengers: Fuck Yeah!, and Wolverine and the Wolverine Avengers Featuring Wolverine. "Oh," said Hickman in response, looking dejected. "It's not quite so special then." He shuffled away, eyes turned toward the ground.
Avengers World, the first three-part Avengers arc is all about bringing the Avengers into the bigger Marvel Universe based on an up till now unknown plan devised by Cap and Iron Man. In the conference call The Outhousers had with each other, it was also disclosed that all three issues of Avengers World would end with an Earth shattering revelation that will change the landscape of the Marvel Universe forever!!!... And probably contradict the previous issues’ revelation.
Affirmative Action Man also plays a role in The Avengers as 12 of the 22 characters in the eventual line-up “are either female or minority” to better reflect the goal of having The Avengers look “like the world.” The Outhousers wonder how many of the Avengers will be starving, have AIDS, practice Islam, or be communists.
Moving on to New Avengers, we begin to see just how the justice system according to Steve Rogers works considering that Scott Summers is locked up and Namor (yea, that guy) is back to being an official Avenger (just like The Scarlet Witch). The rest of the lineup: Captain America, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, and Black Panther should look familiar since they make up the rest of the Illuminati set up by The Great One himself, so conspiracy theorists get ready.
Back at The Outhousers conference call there was a massive throw down fight about whether or not Namor belonged in jail with half of us saying “yes, if Scott is there and the others are being hunted (as seen in AvX #12) why the Hell does Namor get a pass?” and the other have saying “C’mon, its Marvel, you expect them to care about an event that happened a whole two days ago?"
The Outhouse is also convinced, though we are unable to offer concrete proof, that a large portion of the Marvel call was dedicated to talking shit about us. "Thank god those Outhousers aren't here," we imagine people were probably saying. "Nobody likes them." The Outhouse is hurt and saddened by these comments that were probably made at the call, and hopes that other websites and Marvel will act more mature at future calls, or at least say these things to our face so that we can defend ourselves.
Check out the link up top too see all the hard hitting questions from the sites that got invited and how they address the glaring discrepancies between X-Men and Avengers justice.

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
