http://marvel.com/news/story/17810/avengers_vs_x-men



This April, The Avengers and the X-Men—the two most popular franchises in comics history—go to war! Marvel is proud to announce AVENGERS VS X-MEN, a landmark 12-issue pop culture event bringing together the world’s greatest super heroes—Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, Magneto and more—for an unforgettable battle beginning in April 2012.
AVENGERS VS X-MEN is written by a team of the top-selling authors in the comic book industry today: Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Jonathan Hickman, Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction. This unprecedented assembly of acclaimed writers is joined by a trio of the industry’s superstar artists: John Romita Jr., Olivier Coipel and Adam Kubert.
The Avengers and X-Men have learned that the all-powerful embodiment of both death and rebirth known as the Phoenix Force is on a crash course for Earth…and it needs a new host to unleash its immeasurable power. But what is the shocking decision tied to the Phoenix’s return that will pit the Avengers against the X-Men? And when good friends become bitter enemies, what does this mean for the future of the Marvel Universe?

Shipping twice monthly, this epic 12-issue limited series will be available in comic stores and on the Marvel Comics app on the same day—additionally, each print issue of AVENGERS VS X-MEN includes a code for a free digital copy of the issue on the Marvel Comics app at no additional cost to fans or retailers.

“AVENGERS VS X-MEN brings together the most powerful forces in comics for a super hero war like you’ve never seen before and will never see again. We all want to see the best of the best go against each other—Lakers & Celtics; Ali & Frazier; Yankees & Red Sox; and in comics it’s the Avengers fighting the X-Men, ” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “We’ve brought together the biggest writers, biggest artists and biggest characters for the biggest story we’ve ever told. This is the kind of high-octane action-packed story that fans demand while also having a profound effect on every character involved—and reshaping the Marvel Universe in its wake.”

Plus, for the first time ever, fans can watch and take part in the groundbreaking AVENGERS VS X-MEN Live Kickoff beginning at 3:00pm ET, Wednesday, December 7, on Marvel.com and http://new.livestream.com/marveluniverse. A unique event produced in collaboration with Livestream.com’s cutting edge streaming services and the Hangout functionality provided by Google+, we’re bringing the writers and editors of AvX directly to the fans.

Even if you’re not part of the Hangout, your questions can still be answered via Facebook and Twitter. using hashtag #AvX—just make sure to send in your questions before the event ends!
You’ve heard It’s Coming—and this April the War Is Here in AVENGERS VS X-MEN #1! All your favorite super heroes enter—and only one team will emerge victorious!

Marvel must be really desperate with DC selling much more, but The Avengers and this event must be their secret weapon

This must coincide with the return of Jean. Theyve been building her return for years with the Phoenix collecting all of its peices.

It seems silly to just throw that out and have it return with no host.

The USA Today article where this was also announced says that the likely new host is going to be Hope, and the X-Men and the Avengers disagree about what to do with her. The X-Men want to protect and prepare her for its coming, while the Avengers want her handed over to them so they can try and figure out what to do.

i hope it IS Hope and that it burns her away into ashes..which in turn are spread throughout the atmosphere, re-powering all that were de-powered...

In other news..so i guess Cable is unsuccessful in his mission...as if it were ever in doubt

Janet is likely to return soon as well.

I find it funny that the Jean question was once again diverted to Hope. If she isn't in this just say no Jean Grey in this, too easy. It would save her fans time and esp money (but that's probably what they want).

I think the panel about this at whatever Con/event it was spoiled Children's Crusade.

http://www.newsarama.com/comics/marv...nt-111207.html

No point in reading the last issue of ACC then.

And from what we've heard so far, it seems that the Scarlet Witch will also play some role from the Avengers side of the equation. How does the event fold the questions hanging around her since "House of M" into the story of the Phoenix?

Alonso: Well, what I can say is Wanda is a key player in this story. She has a lot to atone for. Will this offer her a shot at redemption?

Hmm... that might actually be worth a look (before selling it on eBay).

I honestly don't know who to root for - or if I should root for anyone.

That was my first reaction too when I saw Emma VS Hulk, all I see is her getting Hulk smashed in diamond form. But thinking about it besides the physical size it could actually be a good fight. Emmas pretty powerful now, if Prof X could get in Hulks head easily, Emma can too.I dont know of many instances cause I dont read Hulk Comics but how does he usually do against Omega Telepaths?

theres no way Emma could stand toe to toe with Hulk. She cant use her telepathy if she's in diamond form and she needs to be in diamond form if he is close to her and even then we've seen it smashed in the past.

Some of these are just for promo ie Archangel. Some of the confirms are Magneto vs Ironman and Namor vs Thing. The main story will probably heavily involve Captain America vs Cyclops.
