How Does the Avengers vs. X-Men Buzz Compare to DC New 52?
Recently as we’ve gotten closer to the event, the traffic being driven to our site surrounding Marvel‘s upcoming event Avengers vs. X-Men has been increasing. Exploding is really the better term. But, this got me to think, how does the buzz around this mega event compare to DC’s relaunch? I decided to hit the tubes to find the answer.
I decided to seek out the wisdom of the Google to see how various terms were doing during their time periods. In this case the below is the amount of searches for “DC 52” vs. “DC Reboot” vs. “Avengers vs X-Men”.
You can see from the graph that all three caused buzz, but the sudden spike and growth with “Avengers vs X-Men” doesn’t compare to the sudden interest in DC’s relaunch. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out and whether searches can shed a clue if online buzz equals offline sales.
