We recently reviewed the Avengers vs. X-Men (Hardcover) TPB and got feedback from a few of our followers that they didn’t know where to start to get to the events in the comic book. So this is a special post for these followers. Its also for those who are new to the Marvel Universe, in particular the Superheroes from X-Men and Avengers.

While many know the basic background for most the characters but the events that have taken place are a bit confusing especially if you joining the party so late. Nonetheless, you are here 🙂

We have put together a list of the (significant) comic books that will get you up to speed:
