Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 4.1


- These have been fun issues in the spirit of the old Marvel Team-Ups. There is a good bit of comedy and the entire issue seems lighthearted. The covers are all pretty much the same for this series a simple pose of the characters involved and the A+X logo. Some of the variant covers are a little more eye catching, although second doesn't really fit the comic because it's meant to be combined with A+X #1. I really enjoyed the art from the Black Widow & Rogue story but wasn't a fan of Iron Man & Kitty Pryde's. Overall the stories are fun, we see Black Widow trying to relax on her day off before she gets interrupted by a Sentinel attack. Luckily another Avenger, Rogue is available to assist in taking it down. The girls then treat themselves as the Spa. For the second story we see Tony trying to hire Kitty to work at Resilient. Issues arrive when some of the Brood from Wolverine & the X-Men #5 - Mutatis Mutandis, Part One: Congratulations! It's a Brood! were residing inside her nasal cavity. Unfortunately Tony has been working with Pym Particles and when Kitty sneezes they cause the micro-Brood to enlarge. Again these are fun issues and are not supposed to have any bearing on the events going on in other comics, I recommend them to anyone looking for a fun read.
