Here's a question for you: who would win in a smackdown between the Avengers and the X-Men?

James McAvoy, who plays Professor X in the upcoming mutant extravaganza [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942), has an answer - but it might really annoy fans of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Speaking on the red carpet for the premiere for the movie, McAvoy said:

It’s good that ‘X-Men’s’ finally coming out so we can raise the bar again this year. Those guys [The Avengers] are good, but this is where it starts.

That's fightin' talk Mr McAvoy! And if it came to blows between the two groups of heroes, he's certain about who would win:

There’s like 40 of us, and like five of them. And one of them’s a half-man half-robot: you just turn off the power and he’s done. Another one’s a guy with a shield who’s a bit strong. I mean, come on. Guy with a bow and arrow? We’ve got guns and stuff, [Wolverine's] got claws. I could just go like ‘sit down,’ and they’ll all sit down… I could be like ‘take your clothes off, and they’d all be taking their clothes off.
It would be a disaster.

I'm staying neutral on this one, but I want to know what you think. Who'd win in a fight: The Avengers or the X-Men?
