    maybe it just depends on which one you read/seen first. The show felt bloated, missing the energy of the comics and lacking the crazyness (due to it being stretched out probably). Haven't even tried se2, even tho I'm kinda interested how they resolve the se1 cliffhanger, but not that much.
    Haven't read Vol 3 yet but I just ordered it so should read it soon and I'm very curious.

    I'm about halfway through the AvX: Avengers vs X-Men collection. I read it in singles when it was being released, and didn't care for it. Years of build-up for Hope as the mutant messiah all just kind of fell flat, and the whole event ended up being about Cyclops daddy issues.

    However, I'm enjoying it more this second time around. Maybe because there are no higher expectations...?

    I prefer the TV series. It had far better characterization, the comic feels rushed in comparison. The bonus for the comic is more superhero fare, and the story has progressed further.
