Interesting premise (villains exchange their traditional foes with each other so as to confuse the heroes) but poorly executed. Quite enjoyed the Byrne Avengers West Coast issues and the McFarlane-drawn Spider-Man issues and that one story where Magneto, who is Jewish, traps the Nazi Red Skull in a dark pit with no light and little water. Classic. But the rest? Meh.

Fun marvel event that was just editorial coming up with a gimmick, switching villains around so they attack heroes they've never fought before, and just letting the individual writers go nuts.

They then set up a framing sequence, which was the 'big story' and that occurred in the Avengers titles.
Nothing earth shattering, very little in lasting effects on the MU. Just the fun of seeing the various match-ups.

Devadesátkové eventy byly právem zapomenuty. Základní nápad AoV je super a i když jsou příběhy docela průměrné, bavilo mě to a akce je tu dost. Co bohužel drhne jsou samotní hlavní záporáci - každý z nich si má údajně nějakou skrytou agendu, ale pořádně nevíme jakou (a nedozvíme se to) a jejich slibované "kill for kill" se neuskuteční ani jednou. Celé to bohužel domrví naprosto příšerné finále =(.
Přesto koupě nelituju, po "Crossoverech" už ale nejspíš nesáhnu.

The variety of issues in this omnibus would have made it hard to rate higher than 3 stars. The concept was great especially for when it came out and some issues rate a 4 or even 5, but there are more than enough to drag it down as well.

Felt contrived and and didn't get in depth about most of the characters. Spider-man being one of the lone exceptions. Overall I'm glad I read it and it was a good idea but not to impressive.
