HUGE SPOILERS FOR AVX

#1 Posted by KainScion (2969 posts) - - Show Bio

i am done. i'm done. marvel you have killed it, you screwed the pooch. its was meh/ok up until this point now its just.........damn you. so avx has taken a really, imho, dumb direction. it a WTF moment.

so the avengers and the x-men are fighting on the moon for hope (2 things: how are they breathing they dont have anything and nobody is paying her any attention). she admits she cant control it, BOOM all of them get hurt by the Phoenix through hope, she asks wolverine to kill her, cyclops stops him (mutant hope bit again). while this is going on tony and hank pym make a huge robot, hit the phoenix (not hope, the actual bird which was in the background all this time for some reason just hanging) another BOOM more hurtiness. when they look around THIS:

and they say that they will do her job as the phoenix until she is ready. WTF marvel?!?!

The thread. As for the split, I don't really care much for it, but I haven't read it yet.

the thing that bothered me the most was the fact that they said they were gonna do her job for her. if they can do it like that what do they need hope for?

As stupid as this is, and it is VERY stupid, I can't help but like Cyclops' Phoenix costume.

i know right insanity! lol

also what happened to omega class mutants could only host it.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAA!!!

Namor has more clothing than usual, Cyclops looks like Nightwing, why does Colossus have belt-glove things, and Emma ALSO has more clothing than usual!

Also, y'know, the whole dumb PHOENIX IS NOT LIKE, ALL THE X-MEN THING. xD

is that MAGIC? why is she there, thought she's dead? I like cyclops' costume he's like a phoenix knight. emma's get up wasnt given much thought, so simply cloth white.

#14 Posted by JohnnyGat (1580 posts) - - Show Bio

I had a feeling something like this will happen, not exactly this but more on Cyke for some PIS reason being fused with the PF with the only basis of my theory is Scott's connection to Apocalypse (I know it doesn't make sense).

If anything I hope Scott keeps the visor it gives off this nice medieval feel to his bland uniform.

#15 Posted by XsPectre28 (739 posts) - - Show Bio

all of this just to not bring jean grey back...... me personally if there was to be Phoenix Acolytes then i feel it should have been People that were already linked to the Phoenix..... ( Emma, Rachel, Xavier, Jean, Cable, Nate, Quentin, Cuckoos, Korvus, Even Cyclops because of his telepathic links with Jean & Emma) i mean magik, colossus, emma, scott, nor namor are omega level mutants nor do they all possess psionic powers........ SMH

eh ill see how it goes.

Caught my interest with this twist.

(For those of you who are expecting Marvel Events to actually be good....on what did you base that on?)

#18 Posted by Twentyfive (2845 posts) - - Show Bio

I thought it would be Jean coming back.

#19 Edited by TheCrowbar (4286 posts) - - Show Bio

You know what I find funny?

Namor is STILL shirtless.

Edit:

Just noticed something:

Colossus has hair... does that mean the cytrorak isn't effecting him at the moment?

Edit2:

They're able to breathe on the Moon because they're in the Blue Zone, which some aliens created before to host a base and then they got routed.

Anyone notice the similarity between Cyclops' new outfit and Nightwing's in the new 52

The Phoenix is a sign of rebirth. Of hair.

I thought only telepaths can possess the Phoenix Force. I can understand Emma and Cyclops possessing it, but Colossus, Magik and Namor?

At the moment, yes... it's just ridiculous. It's kinda cheapen the power of phoenix IMO.

That explains why Professor X starts following Cyclops around he wants in on it.

I think it's going to be interesting, but it's not the direction I would've gone with the series.

This.

Besides displaying your abundant lack of knowledge, what was the point of this thread? No intelligent discussion here, just you summarizing/hating on a Marvel event, props for the originality. The forums are bad enough as it is without this drivel.

Non of the story adds up since the beginning. It feels like a rushed event trying to capitalize on two big Marvel franchises. I like the idea of the story, but it's just not well thought out. I'm just hoping when it's all over, they at least set themselves up in a direction to do something different with both the X-Men and the Avengers.

I agree.  I still don't understand how the Phoenix Force is able to possess Colossus, Magik and Namor when it can only affect telepaths (at least that's what I got from it). Hopefully, the next issue will make things clearer.

Also, I thought only FEMALES could wield the power of the Phoenix Force. SMH.

Xavier contracted the PF before during the DFS or was it in PR?

I agree. I always felt that his standard costume made him look like a roll-on deodorant.

facepalm /What happen to you have to be a strong mind to host the phoenix

To all those people who complain DBZ characters are over powered, I'd show them this article. Then let them see what video game based overpowered buffing really looks like.

W.T........

Oh this should be fun I can only imagine the mess it's going to make of the marvel U.

If there is a god pleas have jean come back in the last book and reclaim the rest of the PF parts and let the PF rest/lay dormant for the next decade.

Really don't understand scott's hope that the PF can help rebirth the mutant race since all it's done is destroy in the past.

@KainScion: So you're allowed to make a completely unoriginal misinformed rant about something that you don't like but I can't comment on something I don't like? Hmmmmm...

I have no problem with people disliking things, everyone has their different opinions but this is beyond that, this is you jumping on the Marvel/event bandwagon of hate, trashing someone's work for the most ridiculous of reasons, saying the characters shouldn't be able to breath when the book clearly states that the events unfolding are taking place on the blue area of the moon. I'm sure someone would have explained that to you if you asked nicely but instead you posted this unoriginal tirade of hate, that even if true serves no purpose. You're not sparking any conversation. Get off the bandwagon and grow up. They are books I don't like too but you don't see me acting the goat.

@Crimsonlord53:

I guess so far since Schism Cyclops has been shown to be stark raving nuts. And this whole "cross-over" event proves it.
