The phoenix force took over Cyclops,Emma,Magic,Namor and Colossus. They have taken the new cosmic power and are reshaping the world into a better giant planet Utopia. Cyclops invited Professor X to see the fruit of their labors. At the end of a long discussion Cyclops simply stated "This was your dream professor, I have given it to you." Now the avengers are in hiding and conceiving plans on how to defeat them. But some of the avengers mutants are not seeing any evil deeds from the phoenix 5. Many conflicts of interest and now we have seen the return of Scarlet Witch, she has taken Hope under her wing for protection. Thats pretty much the gist of it so far.

I am so sick of AvX, especially of the Phoenix Five and how they've been written. This just takes the whole "corrupted by power despite attempts to hold it in check" shtick way too far--now more than ever I'd like to see THIS GUY beat the crud out of them:

@One_Eye: It's Dude, and thanks for the compliment. I myself am a GIGANTIC G-Fan. (Which reminds me, I need to start my G-Fan subscription back up...)

I don't like the idea of the Phoenix five at all, I think it's stupid ... My opinion.

"We are phoenix" rings a little hollow now huh.

I know it's trite and been used to the point of fans not caring but if it's explained that a revived jean is a dark/light phoenix shared reanimated corpse it works better then this bull**** IMHO.

This whole thing was a stupid idea. Phoenix Five, AvX. It's all pretty much garbage.

Pretty much. I was very amused to flip through one of the AvX tie-ins, "Avengers Academy 32" just to see Phoenix 5 Emma not be able to destroy Seyfert's Sentinel with a single thought. It seemed every character showed up to defend this Sentinel, X-23 slashed her and overall, their entire reaction was so ridiculous that I had to put the book down and back away slowly. Apparently, they argued that even though the Sentinel still has this directive in it's programming, the directive to exterminate all mutants was no longer it's primary directive so it had "overcome it's programming". Which doesn't make sense, since Emma offered to wipe it's programming instead of destroying it. Their reaction to that alternate option was that it would be like re-wiring the Sentinel's "personality", however isn't the issue at hand that part of it's personality contains genocidal urges? Just a mess and X-23's own decision to defend it was trite.

I had to put the book down and leave the store. Just ridiculous.
