I enjoy the old-time boxing poster motif, and this Stuart Immonen variant for “AVS Vs.” No. 1 homages that while still making it appear fresh and new. In the first issue, Iron Man faces Magneto, and Thing takes on Namor.
“That might sound like it would be a quick fight, guy in a big metal suit versus the master of magnetism,” writer Jason Aaron said at Planet Comicon in Overland Park, Kan. “But Tony Stark’s no dummy. He’s going to have a plan in place, he’s going to have a bunch of plans to throw against Magneto.”
“AVX Vs.” No. 1 goes on sale April 25, and is the battle-intensive tie-in to the “Avengers vs. X-Men” series.
