One page from WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #11. One page shows three simultaneous battles between the Avengers and the X-Men. Both Ben Grimm and Peter Parker make amusing comments.

I hear you, Spider-Man. It was a better when heroes would fight and then team-up, and not fight if a redheaded teenager was going to destroy the world.

The issue also covers why Logan decides not to kill Hope. And it doesn't have to do with Jean, since Hope *doesn't* remind Logan of Jean (other than the red hair). It is that Logan has something like a conscience.

Who's the X-girl with the sunburst vagina fighting Spider-Woman?

Dazzler would be my guess.

Firstly I agree with Peter, I miss the old days when heroes could work past earlier fight. Sure they might be still ticked off at the other guy but they got the job done.

Secondly, love Ben's quip at Sunspot.

I love how Sunspot thinks he can talk smack to Ben. It's just cute. Like a newborn puppy gnawing at your fingers.

WatXM is definitely one of the better tie ins. Some of it seems kind of redundant (like the Wolverine and Hope stuff), but I do like the side story with Gladiator.

And I giggled at the bit about Hope not reminding Wolverine of Jean. Despite the fact that they keep repeating that over and over, they still made Hope an omega level mutant, with red hair/green eyes, a member of the Summers-Grey family, with a connection to the phoenix force. They even changed her costume to look similar to Jean's phoenix costume.

My geekiness may be showing, but why would anyone call Sunspot Volcano Boy, even in joke? He turns into a super strong silhouette, what looks volcano-ish about that? MAGMA would be the one who looks like the word volcano would apply from the get go.

And having your characters lampshade how bloody annoying the long, long, long slugfest is doesn't make it any less irksome of they're not doing anything about it.

I'm guessing more from his visual effect? The sunspot effect kind of reminds me of Magma in her full powered form. That or he's just intentionally tweaking him. Maybe it's a reference to a villain/hero I'm just not remembering.

It's still a great dig, though. :)

I confess I've never been overly struck by Sunspot having visible clothes when using his powers (Since New Mutants issue 61 or so IIRC, which shows what an old fogey I am), the whole point is his power is that he absorbs light from around him.

Magik can do that, too. Open up portals around the house that make small objects disappear. :)

I'm not sure whether I'd prefer Doom to show up and incapacitate all the Avengers & X-Men making a mess of his country, or chortle at the fact that his enemies are fighting each other. Although given how often that occurs, the charm probably wore off long ago....

Actually, here's a question, Why are they fighting in all of these incongruous locations? What are they defending/attacking?

Oh man, IKR. Maybe I made a bad decision in not keeping up with AvX--? Nah, that was totally the right decision.

These are the locations that Cerebra found Hope possibly at, I think.

Hope used her training from Cable to create a psychic jammer that split her signal on Cerebra to five different locations. Just to get all the Avengers and X-men off her back while she makes her way to the Moon to meet the Phoenix Force.

Ok, that makes sense, still seems a bit weird though.

Oh Pete, you so meta, in the best possible way.

Whatever happened to those days? You know when you could actually sympathize and enjoy yourself when reading? I miss them.

In this post-Deadpool era, that's being subtly meta...
