Can you feel the thunder? Avengers vs. X-Men, Marvel’s big 2012 Event is coming, and with it, the promise of those fights you’ve always wondered about. You know, Doop versus Rick Jones, etc. But until we get a teaser for that one, Marvel has been nice enough to provide a piece of art by Olivier Coipel.
In case you couldn’t figure it out on your own (and you probably can), that’s X-Men member Storm, Queen of the nation of Wakanda, and sometimes African goddess, who has the power to control weather; versus Avenger Thor, the Norse God of Thunder. The two parts that make this particularly interesting? Storm has just joined The Avengers in a recent issue, and Thor… Well, he’s kind of dead, having been killed at the end of the last big Event, Fear Itself.
Is this Round One Bout everything it seems? Does this mean Storm is falling squarely on the X-Men side of the fight? Does this also mean that Thor will wrap up the whole being deceased thing by April? We’ll have to wait and see, but we do know this: a storm is coming…
