Versus – it’s not just an obscure sports channel

Were you worried that there wasn’t going to be enough action and fighting in the Avengers vs. X-Men 12-part series?  Well, worry no more.  Today, Marvel announced that there would be a 12-issue tie-in series titled AvX:  Versus.  Yes, spelled out that is Avengers versus X-men:  Versus.  Like the primary series, this series will also have a rotating team of writers and artists.  Two rotating teams per issue to be exact.  The first issue will have Magneto vs. Iron Man and be written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Adam Kubert.  It will also have Namor vs. Thing and be written by Katherine Immonen and drawn by Stuart Immonen.

I assume that this will also be a bi-weekly series, alternating weeks with the main series.  So, can Marvel maintain what will be a weekly book?  I’m doubtful, but maybe they’ll surprise me.  I was doubtful of DC’s ability to do a weekly series before 52, so there is always hope.  But, I’m still leery of having an Avengers vs. X-Men event, with a rotating group of creators.  What do you all think?
