In anticipation of "Avengers vs. X-Men," Marvel Comics has provided CBR with an exclusive preview of Steve McNiven's interior pages for "AvX Vs." #2 featuring a major battle between Captain America and Gambit. While Salvador Larroca's cover for "AvX Vs" #2 was revealed in February, this is the first glance at the marquee fight contained within.

During the initial announcement of "AvX Vs." in January, Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort spoke to the rationale behind the sole tie-in series to "AvX."

"In the course of 'AvX' #2, there are about forty characters fighting in the very first skirmish and we aren't going to be able to spend more than a page or two on it," said Brevoort. "They're going to be pretty exciting pages, but there's a lot more you can do with any of these conflicts. All of these things will work in lockstep. You won't see bouts in 'Versus' that aren't in some way reflected in the main book, but you will see them in much greater depth."

Check out the pages below and stay tuned to CBR for more on "AvX Vs."
