From Newsarama more information is revealed about this falls event Axis that will have members of both the Avengers and X-Men facing the Red Skull and his team of other villains that will go by the name “Axis”.
The nine issues will be split into three 3-issue acts, and will change the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe in “lasting” ways, writer Rick Remender said, though he also calls the changes “natural” and “additive.” The story for the Avengers and X-Men will be “a nice cathartic chapter in [their] history at the worst moment in their lives.”
AXIS does have a double-meaning as well, with a group calling itself by that name, as well as multiple factions of heroes and villains forming throughout the series. In addition to the previously announced eclectic collection of heroes in Storm, Thor, Iron man, Luke Cage, Deadpool, and Medusa of the Inhumans, Marvel confirmed that Havok, Kid Apocalypse (no longer going by Genesis?), and Quentin Quire will be on the side of the angels. Absorbing Man, Hobgoblin, and Sabretooth were similarly added to the villains’ roster.
So, both the Green Goblin and the Hobgoblin are part of Axis along with Loki, Dr. Doom, Carnage and Sabretooth. This seems to be a lot going on in Axis, thoughts on all this? Thank you Newsrama for the story.
