Avengers vs X-Men #3

Writers: Aaron, Bendis, Brubaker, Fraction, Hickman
Artist: John Romita Jr.

As expected, the arrival of the Phoenix and the battle between the prime teams of the Marvel Universe take a back seat so the spotlight can go to the one who was always meant to be the center of the story: Wolverine. Wolverine recovers from his injuries, Wolverine realizes that the X-Men have an escape plan, Wolverine gets betrayed by one of his own, Wolverine gets in a fight with Captain America, Wolverine takes upon himself to fix things his way. Five writers, and none of them can think of something more creative to do with the story than make Logan the star, and barely in its second month, it is so diluted among the many tie-ins and companion titles, that almost nothing is left to tell in the main series. John Romita Jr. is not having a good streak with this run either; it could be the bi-weekly installments, but his artwork here is just a shadow of what he can truly do.
