I am very new to the Marvel Universe, I suppose you can say. I have known about it basically all my life, but I have only recently started to delve into it myself. I know a good number of the Avengers team (thanks to the 2012 movie and the research I did afterward) and most of the X-Men team (thanks to the cartoon series X-Men: Evolution), so character wise it wasn’t to hard to follow, and the story itself is also really simplistic. Captain America’s teddy bear has been compromised by the X-Men and he will do anything to get him back, including calling for the Avengers to assemble! (Well, the ones that are not sick or grounded anyway.)
Honestly, I read this issue (a one-shot, monthly) simply because it looked adorable and it was. It actually brought tears to my eyes because I was being blinded by the cute! (Baby Iron Man and Captain America~ ❤ ) The action was also really great and the insults that were thrown around were definitely what I would expect to be said by a young kid. It was also fun to find some of the hidden treats too – like the little Spider-Pig doll.
The only complaint I have here is that it was longer. I could read this forever! Heck, make an animated series out of it, please. The fan base would probably be as big as the one for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!
I would recommend checking this out if you are looking for a quick and cute read. Also, if you know the characters to a certain degree (no need for expertise, but it would be more hilarious if you had some background) and wouldn’t mind your favorite heroes de-aged. To me, It was so worth the money!
However, if you are looking for something with a heavy and complicated plot (outside of babies fighting other babies) or extremely detailed art, or perhaps a blood bath, A-Babies vs X-Babies is probably not what you are looking for. The story is just one big explosion and the art is very simplified (though I still wouldn’t be able to draw it), but very easy on the eyes.
