Here’s a video of the AvX trailer you’ll get when you try it out with Avengers Vs X-Men #1.

Nova by Mark Waid and Stuart Immonen has been announced as a new Marvel digital title, Infinite Comics, which may tie in with Waid’s discussion of creating new kinds of digital comics. “The first marvel comics built strictly for digital.
