If you've been keeping up with the AVENGERS VS. X-MEN then you know there are currently five X-Men who have been granted the power of the Phoenix. As you probably expected, this is not going to last. Only one person will be able to hold on to the power of the Phoenix Force -- the question is, who will that person be? And does this news in any way relate to the rumor that Jean may be making her return to the Marvel Universe? Check out the preview image for the third act of AVENGERS VS. X-MEN which launches this August, below.

AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #9 (JUN120592)

Written by JASON AARON

Penciled by ADAM KUBERT

Cover by JIM CHEUNG

FOC – 7/9/2012, On Sale – 8/1/2012

This August, the comic book event of the year – Avengers VS. X-Men – reaches critical mass as Earth’s Mightiest make their last stand against the Phoenix Force. But when the Phoenix Force yearns for a single host, who will it choose? There can only be one! Act Three kicks off in Avengers Vs. X-Men #9, hitting comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this August.

Which team will reign supreme? Join the conversation on Twitter with #AvX!

I'm thinking Iron Fist would make the most sense considering the story they just told in New Avengers 25-26.

Not gonna lie tho I think it would be cool to see Cap, Stark, or Spidery with it.

I wonder if Marvel would get sued if they had the "Only" and "Be" the other way round

I see Iron Man, Wolverine, Iron Fist and then Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch? I hope we're actually surprised by the pick, without having someone ridiculous get it.

~NEW AVENGERS AND AVENGERS VS X-MEN 6 MINOR SPOILS~

@Jonny_Anonymous: That like a hundred years ago or something like that. A red haired girl that looked like Hope became the first Iron Fist in thousands of years. And then the Phoenix came and the Dragon spirit that's inside all Iron Fist got in a fight with the phoenix and helped her control it enough to fly away from earth "because earth wasn't ready yet"

The line on the cover is also "There can only be one" which might be a reference to what Iron Fist said in New Avengers 25 where Hope asked if she was going to be an Iron Fist and Danny's response was "No I'm Iron Fist, and there can only be one" Then Iron Fist's master Lei Kung(The guy who's always on the team roster pages in the beginning) said "Maybe"

Not to mention that in Avengers vs. X-men 6 when they tried to get hope cyclops' black was blocked by a mystic shield that came out of Iron Fist, and they also reference the story a little in issue six.

also Iron Fist's hand is only one facing us and it's in the middle, so kind of looks like it's already in his grasp and everyone else is reaching for it.

Rachel Summers: "they call you the chaosbringer

the say phoenix was evil

that your power was too terrible to be controlled

and your human spirit too weak to witstand its temptation.

I say that´s wrong! I´m your daugther.. firstbron and only child

and I claim the power and the name of PHOENIX"

#24 Posted by bookerman20 (76 posts) - - Show Bio

Isn't that the same issue that has Spider-Man on the cover...??? That New Avengers issue was sick, and the fact the Iron Fist is becoming a focal point makes ths event better....

We already have our answer - Just not willing to accept it.

Who ever it is will probably end up dying at some point in a future arc and then come back a year later for no reason. You know.

I love Jean but please, she turned into an iconic character, Logan even named the school after her, if she returns, after the Scarlet Witch did, it would mean most of what we've seen in the X-series so far, will mean nothing.

It's going to be Cyclops, and then he'll turn evil. Then he'll fight Wolverine, Jean will come back to life, she and Logan will kill Scott, and then proceed to have sex on top of his corpse.

I'm dropping Marvel. They're out of ideas. The rumored relaunch better help them because their line is freaking stagnant.

Is now when Rachel Summers controls the Phoenix Force?

#45 Posted by Mr. Kamikaze (526 posts) - - Show Bio

Good time for Jean to just come back and tell them all to fuck off, absorb the Phoenix force, and then die. Problem solved.

Then next month the Avengers can go back to being hunted by Norman Osborn, or Wonder Man, or the media, or Ultron, or whoevers turn it is to hunt the Avengers and make everyone think they're evil.

I know hands are difficult to draw, but I'm not much of a fan of this teaser.
