I really like Cheung's cover. Makes me wonder how much will AvX be about the teams fighting each other rather than fighting the phoenix.

That Cap cover is grreeaatt.

Those are some great covers....my only concern though, I hope the quality of the covers carry on to the story...

I may be wrong, but that Frenzy cover looks as though she's punching Cyclops.

I think it's Binary Carol. An avatar of the Phoenix Force combating the Phoenix Force itself would be stupid.

@notarandomguy: No, that looks like Binary.

looks like everyone will be getting a go using the phoenix force

@Illuminatus: @TheGreyOutcastX: Pretty sure that it's PF, just like with the Iron Fist cover.

I hope Colossus pounds Ben Grimm real good.

Also it looks like Black Widow has slipped on a banana skin

Peeps may be gripin', but I be likin'.

Have to admit all the covers have been making me curious. The cover with Cap and the Phoenix Force is really wild and intense. All the covers are beautiful but that one just makes me go..whoa.

X-Men vs Avengers would make for a good video game weeeeeee!

@The Dark Huntress: There was a Phoenix Symbol on his chest though on that Cover. You don't see any of that on Carol's Warbird suit.

#19 Posted by Illuminatus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio
@The Dark Huntress: No way it's the Phoenix Force. I'm guessing it's Binary and they're fighting on Attilan. 
#20 Posted by tximinoman (178 posts) - - Show Bio

Binary.

Actaully, just for that, they have won me.

Doubt this match up is even going to happen. Covers (and teasers) are notoriously misleading.

@TheGreyOutcastX: You, sir, are correct.

Cap, Wolvy, and Cyck are definitely regretting their lives right now in that cover

@The Dark Huntress: Well, it's certainly not any city on 616 Earth, that much I know. The buildings look distinctly sci-fi, and my guess would be that Thor and Binary are sent to launch a preemptive strike on the PF before it reaches Earth/assist Black Bolt, assuming he hasn't already bailed.

I actually completely agree with this, especially after what we saw of the PF in the Point One issue.

What happened in the issue?
#28 Posted by TheGreyOutcastX (1992 posts) - - Show Bio

@Illuminatus: Phoenix solo'ed a planet and Terrax. If you saw the preview for AvX, it connects as they talk about Nova who saw this and raced to Earth to tell them.

@TheGreyOutcastX: OH, okay. I remember seeing it in my local shop but passing it up for Flash. Did Bendis write it?
#30 Posted by TheGreyOutcastX (1992 posts) - - Show Bio

@Illuminatus: No, It was Loeb.

#31 Posted by zackattack529 (1404 posts) - - Show Bio

wow...so im assuming colossus is going to be a big player in thsi event. so far ive already seen him fight 3 people in the previews lol thats good though i hope he pounds all those wuss avengers to the ground! GO X-MEN!!!!!

#32 Posted by TheGreyOutcastX (1992 posts) - - Show Bio

@Illuminatus: Forgot to add, that Loeb wrote one of a few stories in it. Bendis did Ultron War, Yost did Scarlet Spider, Fraction did Defenders, and I forgot the last.

#33 Posted by Illuminatus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio
@TheGreyOutcastX: Well, then I won't be picking it up. After Ultimatum, it takes a multitude of good reviews for me to even consider any of Loeb's work.

Binary Ms. Marvel returns. Yeah baby!

#35 Posted by pspin (886 posts) - - Show Bio

So Ms. Marvel's hair is the Phoenix Force... interesting, very interesting. That is definitely a new take.

@Deadcool: Yeah I reevaluate that one later but I was on an ipod so it was to much trouble to edit my post, it doesn't look as good on a small screen

Well, at least Binary is returning...

@BlackArmor: Would you read it? at the beginning I wasn't that coniviced, but this one looks cool, Heroes fighting, and in the middle of the trouble the real enemy appears... Reminds me WarCraft III trailer...

#42 Posted by BlackArmor (6121 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deadcool: I don't play Warcraft but that's an awesome trailer. I do plan to pick up the main book, I was originolly planning to avoid all tie ins but at this point I think that the Secret Avengers tie ins at least look much more interesting than the what we've seen of the main story

I play Warcraft 3 I really love it, what I don't play is WoW...

I have't read anything about it, as far as I know they are going to fight because the Phoenix Force would come back to earth and take Hope as it's host, the Avengers want to take her to avoid that, and Summers wants her to become the Host, Hope is like "F***K THAT" and goes away... But I haven't read the issues...

#44 Posted by BlackArmor (6121 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deadcool: Yeah what you just described is what made me loose some interest, how cut and dry the preview (which seemed to be half the issue) was just kind of turned me off the idea, it doesn't seem like it's being handled all that well.

#45 Edited by Deadcool (6809 posts) - - Show Bio

@BlackArmor: I like the idea, The Mutants have lost a lot, the militaristic mind of Scott would see it as an advantage, and also as a new hope to his race, Hope never wanted to be the mutant messiah, and she doesn't know what is the Phoenix Force so, she leaving for answers is ok for me... Why do you think that is not being handled well?

#46 Posted by BlackArmor (6121 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deadcool: It's reminded me of schism so far, not a bad idea but it's an ends to a means and writing will take a back seat to that means being reached. An example is how they're only looking at the militaristic aspects of Cyclops, sure it makes since that he would want that much power to help the mutant race but he's also had some really bad experiences with the phoenix and him quickly and completely deciding to use it ignores years of story telling. Like I said I don't think anything will be just outright wrong with it but I foresee Marvel conveniently forgetting or ignoring things in order to reach their goal as quickly as possible. It feels like it's going to be a very 1 dimensional story but when dealing with things like the phoenix force you know your cutting stuff out when it's that cut and dry. If this flops allot of people are going to act as if it was the worst thing ever when in reality I don't see this turning out worse than meh but I can't see it being great either
