    So this issue was awesome. It tied in to the main "event" and to Wolverine and the X-Men #10 perfectly. There were a few continuity disorders as to who went to join Cyclops and who didn't, but who cares. As long as they fix it in the next few weeks, all is cool. Read Full Review

    With a nicely paced progression of pacifism to out-and-out combat, X-Men Legacy is definitely the best chapter of Avengers vs. X-Men to come out this week. Even though this book lacks the main players that most people want to see, Gage and Sandoval are really pushing their characters and testing their limits. While I'm not 100% sold on how this fight got started, the creative team on this book makes me want to see who finishes it. Read Full Review

    With Falcon and Redwing facing off with Kitty Pryde and Lockheed, I was hoping for some Pet Avengers magic to work through this issue, but it just didn't happen. What did happen, though, was a good story exploring the effect Captain America and Cyclops fighting in Utopia has on the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. The repercussions of the decisions made in this issue are certain to have a lasting effect on the outcome of "Avengers Vs. X-Men," and quite possibly the entire Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    And with that, my interest in this issue ends. Frenzy starts a fight, Rogue and the students join in, and the issue ends with a promise of more fight next issue. Bland and blander. And not nearly enough Mimic. We can only hope for more next issue! Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase May 9, 2012

    Instead of taking advantage of the ludicrous, panicky attitude leading up to most conflicts in AvX to point out similarities in the panicky reactions to tractable problems exhibited by average citizens in the real world, it almost endorses such a reaction. I actually felt more agitated and less rational after reading this book. Without a compelling storyline, deeper meaning, or even pretty pictures, it's hard to recommend this book to anyone.
