Back before Avengers Vs. X-Men began, Marvel held a live video QnA with good ol' Wendell Vaughn Quasar asking if any of the cosmic characters would play a part.
Of course, Marvel said they would, but in reality couldn't include them because another of their so-called "Best Ever Events" wouldn't be much of an event.
In their place, Marvel put together a team of "Secret Avengers" who didn't stand a chance in Hala of doing much to the Phoenix. This saw the "return" of Captain Marvel, who was actually only brought back to pass the Marvel baton to Ms. Marvel.
Well, Marvel Editor Nick Lowe, who hosted that live chat, apparently didn't know whether or not Quasar was still around. And then we have the architects making jokes as well.
Speaking of jokes, this week's Avengers Vs. X-Men #11 sees the death of a major character — written by the "architects."
By my count this is at least the third time.
By the time Avengers Vs. X-Men #12 hits next month, will we find ourselves saying is "X" man still around?
