This October, the Marvel Universe prepares for the biggest battle its ever faced, and today Marvel is proud to present your very first look inside the highly anticipated AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #1! Blockbuster writer Rick Remender is joined by the star-studded artist line up of Adam Kubert, Leinil Yu, Terry Dodson and Jim Cheung for an epic conflict that will require the Avengers and the X-Men to stand together like never before!

From the ashes of Avengers vs. X-Men, rises a new threat. the Red Skull – a monstrous force of evil, now possesses the extraordinary mutant gifts of the late Charles Xavier. Exploiting the powers of the world’s most powerful telepath, he has amassed an army and broadcasts his message of hate across the globe. Residing in the once proud Mutant nation of Genosha, he has enslaved thousands of mutants in his bid for world domination.

“This is the big one,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “Super hero comics at their biggest and boldest. With the powers of Charles Xavier, the Red Skull is the biggest, baddest villain in the Marvel Universe. Rick’s story is massive and will touch all corners of the Marvel Universe in new and interesting ways.”

All that stands in the Red Skull’s path is the fragile alliance of Avengers and X-Men. Even united, they may not be enough to stem the coming darkness. Earth’s last hope hinges on these fractured squads fighting as one. But as the Age if Inversion looms upon us – have they already lost?

There’s a fine line between good & evil. Find out how thin as the battle commences in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #1!

Plus, before Avengers & X-Men: AXIS kicks off, follow the events leading up to the blockbuster comic event of the year with Avengers & X-Men: AXIS – The Story So Far. Relive the war between Avengers and X-Men over the Phoenix Force, the Avengers Unity Squad’s first battle with the Red Skull in the pages of Uncanny Avengers and more.

FOC – 09/01/14, On Sale 10/08/14

What's the point of changing all the stays quos if we never got to see the old one? They just keep on changing for no good reason.

@dagmar_merrill: same answer. shake things up a bit then back to normal with little modifications. that's how comics are. everybody does it. just some companies don't make a big event out of it.

people say the same things about avengers vs x-men : "this event will be great" but in the end almost everybody upset and dissapointed with the event. Lets hope AXIS don't be like Avengers vs X-men

That video was great. Now that I'm up to speed I'm definitely going to read Axis at some point. This looks awesome!

Also, at 2:53 of the video, did anyone else notice that Magneto is shown as one of Red Skull's allies, even though Red Skull was killing mutants and stole Xavier's brain and IS A NAZI? Somebody please explain why Magneto would join Red Skull after all that!

DIdn't read it after the disappointment of Age of Ultron, AvX and other events. And I'm not a big Hickman fan.

Very interested in this, gonna be checking it out for sure. I haven't watched the little video yet, so I don't know if it gets explained, but are there any comics I should read before this? I'm not really caught up on any marvel series

Too confusing, but Original Sin is pretty damn good, however that just goes with having Jason Aaron as the writer.

Infinity wasn't that confusing thought. It was just two wars being fought on two different fronts.

Yeah and I could not follow any of it. Original Sin on the other hand has a much simpler premise, Watcher's dead, who done it?

Really looking forward to this. Love Remender's work on Uncanny X Force (1 of my fav runs ever) and now Uncanny Avengers. Love the idea of inversion and mixing things up. Tony Stark in particular will be awesome to see inverted. Also Thor's road to redemption will hopefully be a part of this. Hopeful this event will deliver the way Infinity and Original Sin did/is.

I agree. I honestly never noticed until now. I got a good look at it and soon after I see Iron Man breaking the 4th wall and I'm all like DAMN!

ON TOPIC:

I do not understand how users claim they don't "care" or could/n't care any less yet they click on the thread. I also don't get why users go on threads to "hate."

I would like to see someone show me a comment where I said something negative about Swamp-Thing on a Swamp-Thing thread. I'm not a fan of Swamp-Thing(ST); therefore I do not go on ST threads.

If you don't like Storm, Batman, MARVEL, DC, et cetera... then don't visit threads that focus on these subjects. Why add negativity in your life? (+)

Digging Thor without Mjolnir though. That axe is happening.

I'm sorry but, I just don't care. This tendency to throw us from one crossover event straight into another one, over and over again just burns me out. I need down time. Also, the Red Skull and no Steve Rogers... just feels wrong to me. Sorry Sam, get your own villains.

I can't wait for this!!Red Skull is the epitome of evilness with now the most powerful brain in the planet...I have the feeling that Magneto would be his ally because after all Onslaught was him&xavier together....
