Avengers Vs X-Men Are In The Marvel TL;DR Spotlight

Avengers vs X-Men or A vs X a the logo said, was Marvel's big crossover even of 2012 written by Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Jason Aaron, Ed Brubaker and Jonathan Hickman with art by John Romita Jr, Olivier Coipel, and Adam Kubert. It was a game changing event series in that part of the purpose was to undo the events from another game changing event series. Where House of M lead to Scarlet Witch cutting the mutant population down dramatically… this involved Hope Summers using the Phoenix Force, with the help of Scarlet Witch, to recreate a boatload of mutants… thus creating a redemption arc for Scarlet Witch and turning Cyclops into a murderer. Which means that he will be redeemed in an upcoming event series coming soon.

Avengers Vs X-Men

This week's Marvel TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read) recaps the whole series in 2 minutes by writers Noah Sterling, Max Dweck and artist Jina Noh. This is great for the casual reader who wants to quickly understand why there are suddenly a lot of mutants again, why Professor Xavier is dead and why everyone hates Cyclops. I mean, Wolverine always hated him, but everyone else kind of liked the guy. Now, what the video doesn't answer is stuff like, who is Hope Summers? When did Namor become a mutant? And why exactly is Cyclops wearing a codpiece? Those are questions we'll have to get answers to from elsewhere.
