When it was first teased at C2E2, it was noted that the upcoming Marvel event “Axis” was composed of the A from Avengers and the X from X-Men. It wasn’t that subtle.
But maybe it was too subtle for some.
Retailer orders for Axis #1 for September have been cancelled by Marvel, the comic will now be renamed as Avengers & X-Men Axis #1 and resolicited in August’s catalogue, for October shipping.
The title was on the original promo images. But now it’s on the actual order form for readers and retailers who can be left in no doubt that this comic will have both Avengers and X-Men in it, and so please can people order these titles like they did Avengers Vs. X-Men and not, say, Inhumanity.
And you know what? It will probably work.
Just no one call it Villain’s Month okay? It’s Villain’s Months….
