San Diego Comic Con 2012 Exclusive #48: Diamond Select AVX: Avengers Vs. X-Men Marvel Minimates Box Set

AVX: Avengers Vs. X-Men Marvel Minimates Box Set

The hottest comics crossover of the summer is now the coolest con-exclusive Minimate 4-pack! Hope Summers may be humanity’s destroyer or mutantkind’s savior, but whichever it is, three of the most powerful mutants in the X-Men army have united to protect her from Captain America and the Avengers. Hope’s first-ever Minimate 2-inch minifigure is joined by three brand-new Minimates of Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Colossus in his new Juggernaut-inspired look. Available from Diamond Comic Distributors (Booth #2401) and Diamond Select Toys (#2607).

Avengers Characters First Appearances

With The Avengers coming out today in the U.S., artist Jer Thorp had a look at character appearances, of which there have been 127 since 1963.

We can see a big cluster of major Avengers appearing in the first few episodes, with some other big names coming in the next few years (Vision, the Avenger with the 3rd most appearances in issues, doesn’t come along until #57). While there are a couple of major additions along the way (She-Hulk & Photon in 1982), we can see that the cast of characters for the team is defined pretty early.
