I debated putting this in Pro Wrestling, but ultimately it belongs in Print.

CM PUNK wrote the introduction to the Avengers vs. X-Men hardcover edition. Here's an interview from Marvel.com with the reigning and defending WWE Champion. (marvel.com)

“To say I'm flattered to write the intro for the biggest comic book crossover EVER would be...well it wouldn't be me,” said WWE Champion CM Punk. “Don't get me wrong, it's super cool, but it also makes sense.

This unprecedented assembly of acclaimed writers is joined by a cavalcade of the industry’s superstar artists including John Romita Jr (Avengers); Olivier Coipel (The Mighty Thor); Adam Kubert (X-Men: Schism) and others.

“There is no better person who understands the theatrical nuances of a good rivalry than WWE Champion, CM Punk,” said Marvel Editor In Chief, Axel Alonso. “We couldn’t be happier to have him to share his praise of our biggest event yet with his fans, and ours.”

With a limited print run, the Avengers vs. X-Men Hardcover includes a number of bonus features that enahnce the Avengers vs. X-Men experience even further including:

· Exclusive (to the collection) behind the scenes extras utilizing special augmented reality technology with the Marvel AR app powered by Aurasma.

· A code for a free digital copy available exclusively through the Marvel Comics app & Marvel Digital Comics Shop!

The Avengers and X-Men have learned that the all-powerful embodiment of both death and rebirth known as the Phoenix Force is on a crash course for Earth…and it needs a new host to unleash its immeasurable power. But what is the shocking decision tied to the Phoenix’s return that will pit the Avengers against the X-Men? And when good friends become bitter enemies, what does this mean for the future of the Marvel Universe?

You’ve heard It’s Coming—and this November witness every punch thrown, every shield slung and every blast blown out in the Avengers vs. X-Men Hardcover!

All your favorite super heroes enter the fight—and only one team will emerge victorious!

I have seen complaints about Punk, a wrestler, writing a comic intro. Where do those folks think he got the "it's clobbering time" bit for his intro?

In theory, Punk writing an intro is no different than getting a musician or novelist or anyone else from popular culture to try and boost sales.

The funny thing to me is that I have always seen Punk as more as a DC guy than a Marvel guy.

I don't think Punk is a DC guy or a Marvel guy. He's stated in Tweets in the past he's more interested in writers he likes than the characters. He's a fan of Scott Snyder in DC and Ed Brubaker, late of Marvel, for example.

Late last year, he liked the idea of working with Jill Thompson on a Marvel book. (robot6.comicbookresources.com)

Hey Raven wrote one of my favorite Spider-Man stories, so I've got no problem with wrestlers giving it a shot. I'd love to see what Punk or Daniels could come up with.

I wanna be optimistic, but Marvel needs to cut titles, not rename/number series. The X-Men comics relaunched just over a year ago with, what, nine books?
