Marvel Announces Avengers & X-Men: AXIS Corssover Event Focusing On The Red Skull

Jay Cochran - June 13, 2014

Marvel has announced a new X-Men and Avengers crossover event called Avengers & X-Men: AXIS which will be written by Rick Remender and will consist of 9-issues released over the course of 3 months starting in October. The story crosses over into several Marvel titles including Iron Man, Magneto, Loki: Agent of Asgard and Remender's own Captain America and Uncanny Avengers comics. AXIS is told over a trio of three-issue acts that lead to changes for the heroes that will be "lasting and natural and additive,'' Remender says.

The story will focus on Red Skull who if you have been reading Uncanny Avengers knows has obtained the powers of Professor X after removing the brain of the now dead X-Men founder and incorporating it for his own deadly use. I only mention this because it appears that in the AXIS story, the powerful Onslaught character who was a conglomerate of Xavier's and Magneto's powers will be returning with a Red Skull twist.

The story will also feature such characters as Captain America, Thor, Luke Cage, Storm, Deadpool, the Inhumans' Medusa, Havok, Kid Apocalypse and Quentin Quire on the Avengers/X-Men side. For villains expect to see Doctor Doom, Enchantress, Absorbing Man, Carnage, Hobgoblin and Sabretooth. Iron Man will also be playing a major role in the story and is in for a status-quo change, Remender says. "The Red Skull has seen things that Tony Stark is capable of, and seen value in them."
