There is no versus. the audience crossover is huge. most fans of one franchise dabble in or are a big fan of the other.
and 99% of comic readers are fans and are just having a good time and loving the constant chaos of the Marvel universe. 99% of us are here to have a good time.
my perspective of the small differences is a little skewed because while I was in charge of the avengers they were on a ten-year trajectory that led to the movie. so there was an ascension for the avengers franchise that was very exciting for the creators and the readers, and the publisher :-) I’m not taking credit for it I’m just saying it was there and it was exciting. so even the most critical eye had a lot to celebrate.
also, and I will take some credit for this, we were casting a spotlight on characters that were always perceived as C list but were revealed to be fan favorites for decades. that was cool. the reaction, to this day, is insanely cool.
the only real difference is that a small portion of the diehard X-Men fans, and I’m telling you it’s a small portion but sometimes a rather loud portion, are very paranoid about the books and their future and no matter what the evidence illustrates they won’t believe anything else. I never had that on the avengers. it is very odd.
it’s also weird that some fans of the X-Men books, which are about tolerance, are so intolerant to other peoples perspectives. I hear from people all the time who can’t enjoy a good conversation online about the X-Men because someone is always battering them for actually enjoying something published after 1987.
kind of missing the point of the entire franchise.

The caricaturist from last night used to be an animator for Warner Bros and he worked on Batman: The Animated Series.
That’s that, Adam. We’re hiring him for our wedding.
Where and how?

Sure, WCW managed to screw it up before the two even locked up by allowing the show to run long and the feed to be dropped by pay-per-view providers but when fans finally got to see the match, they were…

"I wish they would have kept the Prime Time Players together. They were charismatic as heels and faces. WWE was obviously interested in pushing them (giving them several title shots), and then they just disbanded for no reason. It’s a shame; they could have been pretty good tag team champions."
