So, this new Infinite Comics thing

When Marvel announced Infinite Comics, their new experiment with original digital comics, they made a big deal about how, even though they planned to take advantage of the storytelling techniques the different medium allowed, they were still firmly going to be comics. There wasn't going to be any of that "motion comics" stuff that just comes off as the poor man's animation it is.

Now the first Infinite Comic, an Avengers vs X-Men tie-in/prologue, has come out, and while Marvel's technically right that it's not animation, I don't know, it comes too close for my tastes. What does everyone else think? Is this just poor man's animation?
