    Iron Man 2020 is a Marvel event coming out the same year as X of Swords with a ton of unnecessary tie ins.

    You don't need to read all of the 2020 tie ins in order to understand the main storyline.
    I doubt all of the X of Swords parts will be necessary reading

    One of these events is headed by Hickman, the other is not. 15 issues is a lot, and pretty pricey for something that's likely going to seeded with a lot of important stuff going forward. Events are generally not good for individual books, and the rarer and shorter they are the better. The End.

    I disagree. He put a lot of time and effort into his New Avengers/Avengers books especially breaking down the relationship between Tony and Cap as well as building up the animosity between Namor and Black Panther for it to be some sort of stealth FF4. I mean sure Secret Wars was his way of completing his FF arc I'm not disagreeing with you there and the story was better for it.

    Then don't buy them or collect them in trade? Like has been previously stated the number of parts isnt unusual for Marvel events and especially X-Men events.

    Sums up Fractions tenure very nicely, bold ideas and horrid execution!!

    That was just a promo cover and Jean doesn't have her own sword anyway.

    I'm still only buying the books I'm currently reading so if the story plays out in those books...fine. If the story plays out in the other books I'm not buying then...also fine.
    You never, ever, HAVE to buy anything you don't want to. Regardless of what ANYone says.

    It is an event about magic and magic works based on symbolism. It is more complicated to give a bad explanation than a good one.

    Most of the characters on that promo dont have their own sword. Jean at least has a TK sword which she has been manifested in the past

    I'm sorry, what? This is the worst thing ever? What about Rosenberg? Remender when he snapped from years of fan abuse and corporate pressure? The Faction years?
