-AVENGERS VS. X-MEN:  YAY OR NAY?

I’m sure it’ll be asked, so I’m going to answer it early.  This is currently a good crossover.  It’s shaping up to possibly be an excellent one.  Right now my main gripe is that it’s two (or three, if you count #0) issues in and there have been no surprises in the plot whatsoever.  Otherwise it’s been well-written and fun to read, particularly issue 2.  If Jason Aaron scripted the whole thing we’d be in safe hands, but we’d be robbed of Hickman, Fraction, Brubaker, and Bendis adding their flavor to the page.  I expect it to take some unexpected turns and amp the hell up soon.  If so, with these five guys writing it, strap yourself in because it’s gonna be a heck of a thing.
