Avengers X-Men 1993 Crossover Posters by Adam Hughes, Liam Sharp

Avengers X-Men 1993 crossover Marvel Age 129 cover by Adam Hughes

Today marks the release of Avengers vs X-Men #1, celebrated in comic shops all over the nation.  I read the first issue and it has as good an excuse for a fight as any that Marvel has produced.  The Avengers fought the X-Men during the 1980s in a mini-series that was forgettable.  But did you remember the 1990s crossover event?  Bloodties was the name and Marvel Age #129 featured this Adam Hughes cover marking the occasion.  I've always thought an Avengers X-Men conflict was rife with untapped potential, since many Avengers members (Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver) are also mutants.

Marvel Age #129 also featured one half of a poster drawn by Liam Sharp and inked by Mark Farmer.  I almost thought this was Silvestri at first but it wasn't quite right.  You can see the Jim Lee designed X-Men costumes.  Captain America's wings sticking out remind me of Rob Liefield.

Marvel Age #130 featured the second half of Sharp's poster.  Dig the Image-style 90s style here, especially Crystal.  She's wearing a jacket that can't possibly be buttoned around her massive chest and her waist is teeny tiny.  Never liked Black Knight wearing a leather jacket either.  I'm glad this look has faded into the past.  Nuff Said!
