On the eve of the biggest Marvel eventmaybe everEd McGuinness and I are thrilled to be the lead-in for Avengers VS X-Men, said Loeb. Hopefully longtime fans and first time Cable, X-Men and Avengers readers will be excited by a story that can be read entirely on its own -- and at the same time has lots of stocking stuffer-esque surprises just in time for the holidays.

It all begins with Cable versus Captain America...and only one will emerge victorious! The Avengers and X-Men are on a collision course...and the first steps towards war are taken in Avengers: X-Sanction #1, available in comic stores and on the Marvel Comics app next Wednesday!
