As you might have guessed, there wasn’t a lot of new news at the Avengers Vs. X-Men panel. Nobody wants to spoil the ending. There’s definitely an epilogue in the form of the Consequences mini-series, which will also point the way to what comes next. (The next Event? Marvel Now relaunches? I’m not sure what they meant by that.)
In fact, the only thing I took as news was that the Consequences mini-series will be structured a bit like the Schism mini-series for X-Men and have a different artist each issue.
What actually happened at the panel? Let me pull some tangential quotes from Marvel’s own liveblogging to show what was being discussed.
The Phoenix Five (with a new member, not Namor) will be joining Alliance this fall, with their own take on the story.
So AVX will be entering the world of Marvel’s Facebook game (a really entertaining facebook game, as it happens).
New line of Avengers VS X-Men hats coming this fall!

This all takes place within the Marvel Universe. We do not open a portal, or go back in time. This is all in the Universe post AvX.” – Axel
“Friends go into a comic shop and want to buy a book, but it is just so daunting. Now you can tell your friends to download the AR app, point their phone at a comic, and they get a recap.” – JoeThe recap page will still be there for those who don’t have the app or a smart phone.” – Arune
