    Going, going, gone! The game is over and the winner may surprise you… or maybe not if you are aware of my bias towards a certain visor-sporting mutant. Find out how the game ended in epic fashion down below, but before that I’ll share the MVPs of our game…

  • Avengers vs. X-Men #11 – Review

    Position: Closer. The anchor of the bullpen. This is the pitcher who thrives under the pressure of a close game. This pitcher comes in to secure the win for his team, a lot of the times it’s with an explosive fastball or with guile and a great command of…

    Position: Designated Hitter. Not the most well-received rule change in baseball, the designated hitter gives the pitcher a respite from the offensive side of the game, at least in the American League. With all the heavy hitters in the Marvel Universe, it just makes sense to try to fit…

    Position: Right Field. It’s typically considered that the right fielder sees the least amount of action compared to the other outfield positions, but the right fielder is usually thought to have the strongest arm due to their distance from third base. The Avengers have one of the strongest arms…

    Position: Center Field. The Center Fielder is the leader of the outfield crew. They help coordinate the positioning of their teammates and tend to cover the most ground in the outfield. It seems only natural the X-Men would use their resident regal, mutant, Namor, as the leader of the…

  • Avengers vs. X-Men #7 – Review

    Position: Left Field. Outfielders are expected to cover a great deal of distance, and in this super-powered version of baseball, that includes covering the sky as well. There’s no shortage of high-fliers on both rosters in this game. The left fielder gets a lot of action, so the X-Men…

    Position: Shortstop. The shortstop position is primarily a defensive role, but over the last two decades or so, shortstops have also become a viable offensive threat as well. They have a lot of ground to cover behind the pitcher so being able to get to the ball quickly is…

  • Avengers vs. X-Men #5 – Review

    Position: Third Base. The hot corner! One of the most pivotal positions in the infield. The third basemen is expected to have solid defensive skills in order to prevent any balls hit down the line from ending up in the outfield. Who better to man the hot corner than the coolest…

  • Avengers vs. X-Men #4 – Review

    Position: Second Baseman. The short and gritty player on the diamond a lot of the times. Some of the best have been known for their determination and willingness to get dirty in order to make a play. For the Avengers, I went with Daredevil, whose radar senses should help…

  • Avengers vs. X-Men #3 – Review

    Position: First Baseman. This position tends to go to the big bopper a lot of the time. The home run hitter. Guys that don’t always need to be the best on defense, so long as they can catch and scoop a ball. Of course there are always first basemen capable…

  • Avengers vs. X-Men #2 – Review

    Position: Catcher. The catcher is usually the pitcher’s most trusted teammate. A rapport between the battery mates is crucial to rhythm of the game. On defense, they need to be a brick wall, blocking home plate preventing any runs from getting across. The Avengers have a good game caller and plate blocker in…

    …and the hoooome of the mutants! Play ball! It has started, and no time is wasted before tempers flare and tensions between Marvel’s greatest superhero teams get heated.  Since this is more of an X-Men story in my opinion, and Captain America brings the fight to Utopia, the X-Men…

    It’s coming! Well technically it’s already here. But the time we all look forward to has finally arrived.  No, I’m not talking about the annual Marvel comic crossover event. I’m talking about the start of a new Major League Baseball season. So to celebrate both the return of baseball,…
