There’s only one issue left of the epic Avengers vs. X-Men summer event from Marvel Comics and the company is teasing at major shifts in the Marvel Universe based on the outcome of this battle. After the fight is done, there will be a 5-issue weekly limited series from writer Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men) and five of Marvel’s top artists titled AvX Consequences, with AvX Consequences #1 coming out this October. The cover art is here below.
This series promises to tell exactly what the repercussions of Marvel’s two most powerful teams punching it out are and more specifically they will share what will happen to Cyclops.

Each and every week “YES! YES! YES!” MK2Fac3 and “Love Him or Hate Him” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of April 4, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Well, so a lot of things have happened over the past week. Most of them happened at WrestleMania. You see, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, and all of the fans got screwed out of a really good, fun match when WWE booked the match to end in 18 seconds. I know most of you don’t really care about wrestling (I actually don’t know that), but you should check out Daniel Bryan’s stuff on YouTube. Dude’s phenomenal! Anyway, now that the customary wrestling talk is out of the way, let’s address comics! Comics? Yes, comics, Hunter. There’s a whole lot of freaking books coming out this week that are newsworthy. Firstly, let’s address that this is the cancellation month for DC books, so if you’re one of the 50 people reading OMAC, you won’t be reading that anymore. Scott McDaniel and myself won’t be reading Static Shock anymore, and I’m pretty sure no one was still reading Mr. Terrific or Blackhawks anyway, but those books are gone as well. Along with these books, Men of War is getting cancelled, too, and it’s getting replaced with a war book in what I can only assume is a way to stop Viktor Kalvachev from making amazing covers for DC books. Nonetheless, this week’s Men of War features a guest appearance by Frankenstein and it’s written by Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt, so make sure that’s on your radar. Am I giving too much away in the intro? Maybe, but there’s still one more thing to hit on. What was it…? Hmm…. Oh yeah! Avengers vs. X-Men officially starts this week! So, if you want a complete rundown of this and all the other books you should be paying for and attention to, keep reading because that’s what The GoD List is all about, mother lovers.
Marvel Comics announced on Friday that acclaimed writer Jonathan Hickman would be wrapping up his 3-year Fantastic Four run in October.
While the future of the Fantastic Four title is surely not in jeopardy, it remains to be seen whether or not Hickman’s initiated FF series will continue with another creative team. Jonathan Hickman’s run with these characters has been highly praised by many within the industry and created a strong and rejuvenated interest in the characters. For example, when I was starting to get in to the Fantastic Four, many suggested Hickman’s run alongside Mark Waid’s, John Byrne’s, and Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s tenure with the title. Therefore, in many readers’ eyes, he’s placed amongst the greats. So, while this news may come as a shock to many fans, Hickman isn’t the only one who’s shifting creative gears.
