First Look at Avengers & X-Men: Axis #3!


Fresh from the conclusion of Original Sin, Marvel Comics has revealed a preview of Avengers & X-Men: Axis # 3, their next title in the Earth-616 Universe. This issue was written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Leinil Yu.

Though they now stand united against a common foe, their fragile alliance is not enough to stem the darkness. Coupled with the powers of Charles Xavier, the Red Skull’s terror knows no bounds. Battered and broken, the few surviving heroes must put their faith in unlikely allies, and give rise to the most vile syndicate known to man. Can the Red Skull be defeated? And at what cost? Would you destroy the Red Skull if it meant losing the very last piece of Charles Xavier?

As one of the last remaining heroes, the Scarlet Witch is forced to join forces with Dr. Doom – the man who twisted and abused her power to cause M-Day. If she can’t, she’ll have to watch those she loves most die. And a twist of fate will return one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest villains from beyond.

Taking place after the tragic fallout from Avengers vs. X-Men, things are looking very bleak for the Marvel Universe. Will the Avengers and X-Men be able to defeat the Red Skull whose power has now been amplified by the brain of the late Charles Xavier? We can only hope and pray.

Avengers & X-Men: Axis #3 is slated for release this coming October!
