Avengers vs X-Men #7
Written by: Matt Fraction

Released: July 4, 2012
This issue does a lot right, as well. Fraction does a fine job of capturing the growing tension on the Avengers side. The interaction between Black Panther and Tony Stark stands out particularly. These two have never had the warmest of relationships to start with, but here Tony’s latent death wish becomes a major source of friction for them both. With Wolverine continuing to fade into the background in Act 2, it’s really Panther of all characters that is stepping us as the neutral party and moderate voice of reason. Marvel has also been promising a major game-changer with this issue. While I’m not sure I would describe the final pages as “game-changing,” Fraction does deliver an impressive escalation in the conflict that promises a very memorable issue in #8. In all I would rate this issue a 7.5/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling!
