So tell me, should I start spending $3 a comic again for the New 52 stuff or is it really not worth that much for every tiny step in the story?

I've heard of a TV series being produced on HBO for the series.(OT)
If the serials are really good I might give it a try. Who knows maybe it'll end up a hit on HBO.

Yup I got it and good first issue. Cyclops responded to Captain America like we all knew he would. With one hell of a optic blast to start things off.

I read the preview that came with this month's Iron Man, and God, what did Marvel do with Cyclops? What a crappy character. Marvel's vision of nuance is not what makes a good character. At all. I haven't read any X-Men titles since that thing where Cable was on the run from Hope, and this just confirms how much I need to stay away from those titles (although that happened as soon as they made Magneto a hero).

What exactly was the last X-Men title you read? X-Men Schism, the storyline with Hope, and more were good.

I can see how someone might not pick up a X-Men comic because Marvel has too much going on at the same time with the different X-Men books. Somebody can easily get confused as to whats actually the main story going on.

Avengers vs. X-Men. And some random comics before that. I absolutely hated them. Boring, bland, no strong, good characters.

I bought Issues 1 and 2 of X-men vs the Avengers and they're pretty good.
I'm pulling for the Avengers.
Cyclops is being reckless (No shocker there)

Also, Wolverine chose the Avengers because Cyclops is acting on impulse like a child.

Cyclops is one of my favorite characters but I hate what Marvel is doing to him.

I second that motion. Well, I've never really liked Cyclops that much, but I definitely agree that Marvel is completely demolishing the character.

I don't know what to think at the moment really as both sides have a point. Captain America is right in the fact that if the Phoenix bonds with Hope they all could be screwed if things turn down south like they did with Jean Grey. However Cyclops is right that Hope bonding with the Phoenix could be the thing the mutant race needs.

Either way one side is going to regret there decision.

On DC's side the new 52 is great. Although the Justice League's attitude kind of needs to improve a bit. However I understand its them when they first formed so there gone be not as experienced and have different attitudes.

I read the first 3 issues and I'm pissed beyond words... X-Men beaten in a matter of four pages... Cyclops can't ricochet his beam it seems, because The Cyk I know would demolish Cap in a few short blast... But I guess Marvel is setting this comic up for Avengers fans via the Movie!!! I'm not happy!!!

Oh man I started reading American Vampire too AVP and its good. Avengers vs X-Men is a great read too. I love how Ironman told Cap he reminded him of how he was during Civil War and Magneto told Cyclop he reminded him of his past self. Its like both men are changed in this storyline. Cyclops knew Captain America would act like this as if you remember in the past I think they fought over Jean Grey as well as Scarlett Witch. You guys have to read the other issues which are good and are part of Avengers vs X-Men. In other issues Juggernaut beat the living hell out of Red Hulk to the point Red Hulk's face was f**ked up and other great stuff.
