I am not reading AvX, who is the girl in the first picture that cyclops is shooting at?

Posted by JohnnyWalker

so much for chuck not interfering any more. and really marvel? storm vs emma? one very short fight. VERY short.

Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7

This is what I expected considering the ending of AvX #10. Maybe this happens towards the middle of the book.

Emma Frost

Well we all saw this one coming...looks like Emma's going to die. Eeep. Question is; How long is it going to last?

Posted by brucecapell

I'm over this event honestly with the Marvel Now titles coming. Xavier dies and Legion brings the original 5 x-men back to continue his dream.

emma dies and charles is going to be handicapped again.....

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Hay remember when the X-Men used to be the good guys?

Posted by RedQueen

Is it just me...or is it the more Emma is getting corrupted by the Phoenix, the less she wears? I swear her outfit is just getting smaller and smaller :p

Posted by EdwardWindsor

Looks like storm Emma cap and xavier bs cyke to me

Posted by Gonzo33

Charles won't end up in a wheelchair judging by the previews for WATX

Posted by Mucklefluga

im still not interested in this event. ill probably just read the last issue at my LCS to see how it concludes and creates Marvel Now

Posted by Dark_Vengeance_

Make you bets! how will she die? will she be killed by cyclops? cap? Squirrel Girl? or will it be an accident? maybe she will not die... or maybe somebody else will die...

Posted by Eclipse-32

Remembering Civil War, I think there's a chance that Xavier may die.

@PortlandsBatman:

thats storm attacking emma

Posted by illegal

the further this event goes the more cyclops is demonized by marvel smh

Posted by Lvenger

Although AvX is slightly better in terms of events that's not saying much. I'm sick and tired of the latest 'game changer' and I use that term loosely.

Posted by DATNIGGA

Looks interesting... i hope thor doesnt get beating down again lol

Posted by DarkKnight96000

Did Cyclops lose the Phoenix Force already, if not why isn't Captain America's shield destroyed (I know it's supposed be indestructible, but against the Phoenix Force that's pushing it).

Posted by cuddles666

Am I the only one who thinks everything is the Avengers' fault? If they would have left Utopia alone, the Phoenix Force wouldn't have been destabilized. Instead of five insane hosts, it would just be Hope and she'd probably just fix the mutant race. Even after the Phoenix Five took power, they probably would have been great for the world, if the Avengers hadn't been constantly attacking and undermining their authority. Sure, we're supposed to see Cyke as the villain now, but I still think he's the best possible Phoenix host (though Phoenix Magneto would have been really awesome too).

Posted by LordRequiem

If Emma dies and they temporarily replace her with this Jean Grey from the past, I will be angry.

Posted by Chibi-Iroh

I doubt that Emma is going to be the one that dies. Im hoping its Cyclops that gets killed and I hope its either Wolverine or Cap that does it. I hope Storm is fighting on the good side of this event.

@illegal: Same recipe with the civil war, guys. Back then, Tony became the "bad" guy. Now, this.

Actually, it looks to me like Cyclops and Emma are still working together in these two pages. It looks like Emma is fighting Storm, while Cyclops is fighting Cap and Prof X.

I was going by the cover (as the first picture) ;p

But yes, it does indeed look like Cyclops and Emma are still working together...Cyclops minus the Phoenix Force. (?)

Yaaay, Olivier doing art again.

Surprisingly this years event is going well and it picked up nicely too.

If Marvel kills off Emma.......

My bad.

Yeah, Cyke might not be using the Phoenix Force. I know in the last issue after Hope punched him, his speech was no longer in red, indicating that perhaps his portion of the PF isn't at full strength and needs to recharge. Just my guess.

Posted by RedQueen

On a similar note; I think Cheung has done a great job with the covers for this event :D

Posted by Super_SoldierXII

The series has a few honorable mentions;

Wolverine carrying Thor's prone body to safety while his healing factor struggles to keep up as Iron Fist takes notice that Thor's Phoenix fire coated body is burning him alive ... Wolverine gruffly replies "just keep moving".

Spider-Man, yes, Spider-Man ... doing what he does best, saving the day ... painfully awesome.

These issue # 10 moments come to mind as I try to forget the silliness of Wolverine being lured to the jet by Hope using *sigh* beer cans, Thor getting spanked every second issue (seems like he was used as the patsy to prove how ubber everyone else was), Captain America acting OOC a little too often ... the X-Men looking more and more like the fascists they struggle daily to overcome ...

Despite all ups and downs, I will definitely stick it out for the conclusion and am actually looking forward to the new direction coming this fall.

nope it should resist the the blast (cap's shield)...its indestructible...thats the cool thing about it

Both parties are at fault and have made stupid actions.

All those mentions were just as bad as this event.

If Avengers left everything alone Spider-Man wouldn't have been there to effect Hope like she needed and the world would have blown up.  Further supported by the fact when Hope was being infused by the PF on the moon she couldn't handle it. Also the reason supporting that the PF was even here to restart the mutants race was based on a  known lair an manipulator, Even in his version she didn't have Zero there to make the 5'th light.       Not saying the Avengers did everything right just saying staying out of it would have been worse.

Now, I think the Phoenix needs to reconsider its career. Its ability to instantly redeco its hosts shows me it could make a handsome living as a fashion designer. 
 
I mean, instant brands. C'mon. Use your full potential here, Phoeny.

Cyclops is such a jerk. And he actually thought that phoenix speedo was a good look.

Posted by Mega_spidey01

the art looks amazing ! i might pick the series just dor that alone in tpb.

@JoseDRiveraTCR7:

There was a mix of good and bad in 'those mentions' as intentioned. Did you distinguish? If you think the Spider-Man scene was bad, then you're probably one of those glass half empty kinda blokes who likes to piss on 'events' in their entirety without bothering to differentiate.

Or it's just more fun to gripe ... to each their own.

I thought the Spider-Man scene was over dramatic. Nice personal attack, though.

There's a difference between offering a reason to your responding to my post and contradicting my opinion by expressing you felt the scene 'over dramatic', an admittedly more intelligent and 'open to discussion' kind of response, then responding to my opinion saying 'it's all just bad'. Honestly? I'd rather someone leave me be than arrogantly contradict my opinion in a "you're wrong it's all bad" kind of comment that is completely meaningless to me, not to mention antagonistic in its own right.

Like your opinion somehow invalidates my own without bother to elaborate. So ya, I didn't like your two cents in the way they were proffered and clearly informed you of such. I have no problems entertaining difference of opinion, but not when slapped in the mouth with them without so much as a 'by your leave' let alone an elaboration as to the whys and wherefores.

Posted by Black_Vulcan76

When Cap's shield got destroyed during Fear Itself didn't they combine it with Uru (sp?) metal when they reforged it? That's the only reason I can think of it would survive a Phoenix blast

lol. Very True. Extra points for calling a practically omnipotent force "phoeny".

Marvel screwing with Cyke....they'd at least better make it respectable

Posted by Blood1991

Cap deflecting a cosmic Optic blast is bull and I'm a huge Cap fan. Oh and that Storm vs Emma image was epic. I want to see Storm, Ms. Marvel, and The Scarlet Witch go at her a little more.

Storm vs PhoenixEmma is awesomeness

Yes Storm. Its time for that payback you owe Emma for that comment. Its ON!!!!!

"Wolverine carrying Thor's prone body to safety while his healing factor struggles to keep up as Iron Fist takes notice that Thor's Phoenix fire coated body is burning him alive ... Wolverine gruffly replies "just keep moving"."

This just makes me think why they didn't just throw Wolverine and hulk at the phoenix. Obviously popularity is too strong for the PF.
