A wise man once said, “Time travel makes my head hurt.” After reading the first two chapters of Marvel Comics new X-Men crossover event, Battle of the Atom, I think it may have been one of those uncanny mutant superheroes. The X-Men of the past are living in the now with the present day X-Men and now they don’t want to become them. The X-Men of the future show up and they’re sorry they were ever either of them. Confused? Me too, but only just a little, so meet me after the jump for my review of Battle of the Atom.
What happens when there’s just too much action for one series to contain? If you’re talking about Avengers Vs X-Men, the huge miniseries that Marvel Comics has been building up to for nearly a year, you create a separate series of rock ‘em, sock ‘em action called AvX: VS.
