Avengers vs X-Men #6
Written by: Jonathen Hickman

Released: June 20, 2012
All told, this issue does what a first issue should: it excites you for what’s to come. Hickman teases the reader by introducing some cool little plot elements. Are the Phoenix’s Five’s need to do good part of something needed to create that threatens to overwhelm them (they can never do enough)? What’s with Iron Fist’s relationship to the Phoenix and his out of nowhere defense against its powers? Why are the Phoenix Five so rebuffed by the Scarlet Witch? All are compelling plot elements that I can’t wait to see addressed. Moreover, it empowers and showcases two beloved characters: Iron Fist and Scarlet Witch.
If there’s one downside to the book, it’s that the last page would’ve been much more effective had Marvel’s solicitations not already used Scott’s words as a marketing tool, but that’s comics.
Against all odds, AvX #6 gives us plenty to be excited about. If you’ve been unhappy with AvX thus far, give this issue a chance; Marvel promised that this was the start of “Act 2″ and that last month really changed the game, and they’ve delivered. This is a very different book from what we’ve been getting for the past five issues. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on maveling!
