    Just for the Ororo vs. T'Challa fight alone, this issue is well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    AVX: Vs #5 is another good installment of the side-series and as Avengers vs X-Men wraps-up, it's nice to see both comic books start to reflect on the costs of this universespanningwar. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Anyways, next up, Black Panther takes on Storm in the biggest marital spat of the century. Black Panther's inner monologue justreeks of Bruce Wayne this issue. He even shows off some Batman-level contingency plans to take down Storm. Kind of a dick move, compounded by the act of pulling on her cape. For a master martial artist, BP isn't exactly honorable this fight. But Storm makes up for it by sucker-punching him after a kiss. The caption at the end says there's no winners but we all know who won that fight. Looks like that marriage is over. Read Full Review

    Ideally, AvX: VS should be able to offer a mix of effective character moments and big, dumb action. Unfortunately, this issue is an example of poorly handled character moments simply getting in the way of the action. Read Full Review

    This comic is what it claims to be: a fighting comic book. There is no context, no story, no continuity and very little dialogue. Unfortunately, in order for this to be a success it has to bring some different to the table and with fighting as a staple of super hero comics these fights have the been-there-done-that feel to them. This is a very ordinary issue. Read Full Review

    Fans of the Black Panther and Storm should steer clear of this story, which is not what you want to hear about the stars of a comic. But as a whole, there's not much more spark than throwing random sets of action figures together. Other installments of AvX: Vs. have managed to pull off some cool fights with quirky combinations " heck, Aaron and Fraction have written plenty of them " but this is worse than a dud. It's a bomb.
