Avengers vs X-Men Infinite #2

Writer: Mark Waid & Yves Bigerel
Artist: Carlo Barberi

So, Scott Summers a.k.a. Nightwing Cyclops. Some argue he is just trying to save his people, but his detractors continue piling up by the minute. Ms. Marvel's speech was the one that convinced me; he is crazy. AvX Infinite #2 takes preventive measures in case fan reaction against this move on his character turns ugly; and if it does, the excuse will be "it was the Phoenix, not him!" There is no denying the stunning visual quality of this product; the art, the colors, the effects look simply beautiful in a screen -and the bigger the screen the better the experience. It is no coincidence, however, that the plot of this digital comic focuses on a single character just like the first Infinite focused on Nova. Personal, short, very specific stories seem to work great with this format, but could the standard 20 page comic book be translated into an Infinite version? That remains to be seen.
