The series focuses on the return of the Phoenix Force, the cosmic entity of death and rebirth, as it looks for its new host, believed to be the teenage mutant Hope Summers, who will possess all of its power. Cyclops and the other X-Men want to protect her and prepare her as if she's to be the mutant savior, while Captain America and the Avengers want her handed over to them, so they can figure out what to do with her and keep the world safe from a potentially deadly fate.
Marvel's editor-in-chiefAxel Alonso said “You've got two populations whose motivations are simple and understandable and defensible. In the series, Cable learns something's going to happen to his daughter, Hope Summers, and he has been tipped off that the Avengers are responsible.
Lobe said “It's a story about a father and what he's willing to do in order to protect his family. There are lots of Easter eggs that will give you hints of this cataclysmic thing that is on the horizon.
But by the same token, it is a story that is really driven by Cable and what he has learned in his journey through time”. The prologue Avengers vs. X-Men #0, illustrated by Frank CHO, published in March 2012, offers two short stories, one starring Scarlet Witch by Avengers writer Brian Michael Bends, and another starring Hope Summers, the girl who many feels is the next host of the Phoenix by Wolverine and the X-Men writer Jason Aaron.
Bends wrote Avengers : Disassembled, where Scarlet Witch lost control of her magical powers and turned on the Avengers which led to the alternate-reality event series, House of M and her repowering of most of the mutant population. Bends said in the series, “ faced with a situation that could either redeem her, which would be crazy awesome, or make things worse, depending on the choices she makes and the sides she takes and the moments she chooses to interact with the story... Now Hope is the same way but there's kind of a flip: She has everything to lose.
In April 2012, Marvel debuted the six-issue tie-in series AVX: VS which focused solely on fight scenes. Marvel's executive editor Tom Report described AVX: VS as “the fight book”.
The first Infinite Comics is Avengers vs. X-Men #1 Infinite, a tie-in story starring Nova, written by Mark Said with art by Stuart Immune and Mate Garcia, available on the Marvel Comics app or included with the digital version of Avengers vs. X-Men #1. Infinite Comics will be bringing you some stories that may have fallen through the cracks or haven’t been dealt with in great detail”.
A five-issue limited epilogue series, AVX: Consequences of writer Keaton Gilles and artists Tom Reyna, Mark Brooks, Steve Kurt and Dale Eagle sham debuted in October 2012. Gilles stated the series explores the emotional conflict between the major players left on the board once the battle dust has settled.
In March 2013, Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso announced the launch of What If? AVX, a 4-issue limited series by writer Jimmy Pavarotti and artist Jorge Molina in July 2013.
Alonso said, “If you've ever wondered what might have happened if the Phoenix Force had found a different host than Cyclops, Emma Frost, Enamor and Colossus ... then you'll want to read What If? The battle is interrupted by the arrival of the Phoenix, the threat that Alexander came to warn against.
Terra is seemingly destroyed in the aftermath as Alexander escapes, resumes his mission and travels to Earth, the next planet in the Phoenix's path. Avengers : X-Sanction Cable (who was presumed dead after the Second Coming event) returns from a desolate future after having been informed by Blacksmith that the Avengers are somehow responsible for the death of Hope Summers and the terrible future.
To prevent Hope's death, he devises a plan to take down the Avengers one by one before they can harm her. Cable first attracts the attention of the Avengers by shooting down a prison transport plane.
As the Avengers round up the escaping prisoners, Cable kidnaps the Falcon. Believing that Cable has gone too far, Blacksmith sends in Cyclops and Hope to stop him.
Cyclops and Hope to plead with Cable to release the Avengers, but are interrupted by the arrival of Spider-Man and Wolverine. While Cable is distracted fighting Spider-Man and Wolverine, Hope (guided by Blacksmith) frees the captured Avengers, while the Red Hulk burns the techno-organic virus out of his body.
Cable succumbs to the combined efforts of the Avengers and his own infection of the techno-organic virus, and is brought to Utopia. Blacksmith tells Hope that she can still save Cable by absorbing the techno-organic virus with the Phoenix Force.
Once fully healed, Cable informs Cyclops that Hope is indeed the Phoenix, and that he needs his help to protect her when war comes with the Avengers. On Utopia, Hope Summers sneaks out to fight crime in San Francisco against Cyclops' wishes, where she stops the Serpent Society from robbing a bank.
At the X-Mansion, Wolverine tells Captain America that he believes the Phoenix is coming for Hope Summers. Captain America then travels to Utopia to ask Cyclops to hand Hope over to the Avengers so that they can place her into protective custody.
Cyclops refuses, believing Hope to be the mutant messiah, and orders Captain America to leave. As war breaks out between the Avengers and X-Men on the beaches of Utopia, Emma Frost takes Hope inside the compound and leaves her with members of the Lights for her protection.
Hope knocks out the Lights, believing that she is the cause of the war and insisting she is the one that must end it. Spider-Man and Wolverine infiltrate the compound and find Hope, but are defeated by her growing Phoenix powers.
Meanwhile, in deep space, Thor leads the Secret Avengers as they prepare to encounter the Phoenix Force. After convincing the Avengers that they have surrendered, Cyclops's Extinction Team escape from Utopia in order to track down Hope.
Wolverine is rescued by Hope, who asks for his help to reach the Blue Area of the Moon. On Earth, the Avengers and the X-Men search for Hope in Wakanda, the Savage Land, Wundagore, Latvia and Tabular NASA.
The X-Men arrive soon afterwards, after Emma Frost scans Captain America's mind. As both sides begin to fight, a nearly-unconscious Thor falls to the lunar surface and points out that the Phoenix is coming.
While both teams fight, Hope starts to lose control of herself and, fearing she was wrong about her ability to handle the Phoenix, asks Wolverine to kill her. Meanwhile, Iron Man and Giant-Man prepare a disruptor weapon to kill the Phoenix.
Iron Man uses the weapon to shoot the Phoenix, but instead of killing it, the blast separates it into fragments, which bond with Cyclops, Emma Frost, Enamor, Colossus, and Magic. The five mutants defeat the Avengers and head back to Earth with Hope.
Hope agrees to go with the Scarlet Witch, as Cyclops vows that he will no longer tolerate the Avengers. During a confrontation between the Avengers and the X-Men, the Scarlet Witch injures Magic, while Emma Frost severely burns Hawkeye.
As the Phoenix Five heal Hawkeye, Cyclops reprimands them for their use of excessive force, but Magic demands that they must kill the Scarlet Witch and Enamor reminds him that they are at war. In Wakanda, Hope tells the Avengers that the X-Men fear the Scarlet Witch.
As both teams keep fighting and taking prisoners around the world, Scarlet Witch injures Enamor. Furious, Enamor goes against Cyclops's orders and leads the Atlantes into war against Wakanda.
As Enamor attacks Wakanda, Iron Man takes Lei King to join Wolverine and Hope in K'UNIL'UN. Captain America then assembles every Avenger he can muster and manages to take down Enamor in a hard-fought confrontation.
Several X-Men feel uncomfortable about the way the Phoenix Five are treating their prisoners. Storm arrives in Wakanda in the aftermath of Enamor's assault and tells Black Panther that the captured Avengers are being held prisoner in a volcano in Siberia.
The Avengers then lead a rescue mission with the help of Storm and Professor X to break out their comrades but are stopped by Magic and Colossus. Spider-Man baits Magic and Colossus into taking each other out, allowing the Avengers to escape.
As the Avengers arrive back in K'UNIL'UN, they are surprised by Cyclops, strengthened after absorbing Magic's portion of the Phoenix force. The Avengers stall Cyclops as Hope retreats to find Lei King, who tells her that he has one final lesson and presents Shaw Lao the dragon, the source of the Iron Fist energy.
Hope absorbs the dragon's energy and manages to stave off Cyclops's advance. She falls back behind the Scarlet Witch and with a combination of both their powers, Hope sends Cyclops to the Moon.
On the Moon, Cyclops comes to the realization that he will need Emma Frost's power as well in order to defeat Hope. Meanwhile, on Utopia, Magneto asks Professor X for his help as Emma Frost's rule becomes more tyrannical.
Seventy-two hours earlier in K'UNIL'UN, Hope takes her frustration over the war out on the Scarlet Witch, but Captain America mediates, suggesting that their only chance to win is if they work together. As a last resort, Captain America sends in Hope and Scarlet Witch, who together manage to take down the Dark Phoenix.
In the aftermath, Cyclops is placed under arrest, but willingly accepts this, so he can begin his eventual desecration of humanity, and Captain America decides to put together a new team of Avengers in order to mend the bond between the two sides, while Hope joins the Jean Grey School. AVX: VS During the battle on Utopia, Iron Man gains the upper hand in his fight with Magneto by siphoning magnetic energy from Jupiter.
Magneto attempts to counter by pulling in other interstellar objects and as a result senses the destructive force of the coming Phoenix. Iron Man then stops the fight in favor of helping others in their search for Hope.
As he is leaving the scene, Magneto tells him to find his daughter, Scarlet Witch. In the Savage Land, Captain America fights Gambit, who kinetically charges his suit, causing it to explode.
However, Captain America survives the explosion and manages to knock out Gambit. Despite his injuries, Spider-Man refuses to stop fighting, but flees when Daredevil informs him that Hope is not in Latvia.
During the battle in the Blue Area of the Moon, Red Hulk throws Colossus in the direction of Thing. Colossus in turn takes the Thing outside the Blue Area of the Moon.
Back in the Blue Area of the Moon, Magic drags Black Widow to Limbo, but she defeats Island's demon hordes and forces Island to take them back to the Moon. However, after they return to the Moon, Magic stabs Black Widow in the back with the Soul sword, rendering her unconscious.
In Ukraine, Thor shatters Emma Frost's diamond form, launching the shards into space. As the shards fall back to Earth, they rip through Thor's body and reassemble on the ground.
Thor, severely injured from the shrapnel, succumbs to Frost's Phoenix powers. While the Avengers and X-Men search for Hope, Hawkeye fights Angel in Wundagore.
The battle is interrupted when Locke arrives at the scene; Hawkeye threatens to shoot her head unless Angel stops fighting. In Wakanda, Black Panther and Storm fight while reflecting about their life as a couple.
In K'UNIL'UN, Hope Summers starts a fight against the Scarlet Witch, mimicking her powers. After both women nearly destroy reality, Captain America orders them to stop.
However, after both lower their guard, Hope punches the Scarlet Witch in the face, knocking her to the ground. Elsewhere, Havoc defeats Captain America, Domino knocks out the Red Hulk, Edwin Jarvis throws Toad out of a window in Avengers Tower, Hawkeye imagines Spider-Woman wrestling with Emma Frost, Storm and Locke, Iceman defeats Iron Fist, and Squirrel Girl and Pixie play with Avengers and X-Men figurines, before finding out that the figurines were created by Puppet Master out of mind-control clay, one day before the start of the hostilities between the Avengers and X-Men.
Due to lack of experience, he is unable to slow down when reaching Earth and crash lands in New York. Nova is rescued by the Avengers, but is unable to explain what is coming before passing out.
After the Phoenix Five restructured Utopia, Cyclops's mind is overcome by all the thoughts on the island and he goes to the Blue Area of the Moon in search for a quiet place. She points out that he cannot let the Phoenix make him lose touch with his humanity, and he heads back to Earth deciding that he needs to preserve the man that he has always been, not letting the Phoenix change him.
In K'UNIL'UN, Iron Man and Beast develop a mechanism fed by the Scarlet Witch's hex powers, which use her inner thoughts to consider all the data gathered on the Phoenix Five and the Avengers, in order to figure out their best scenarios to overcome the X-Men. The mechanism comes up with three scenarios, consisting of Iron Man, Thor and Wolverine, but all three end with Cyclops defeating his opponent.
However, as Hope enters the room and the Scarlet Witch sees her, a new scenario appears, in which Cyclops is defeated, making Iron Man realize her crucial role in the battlefield. The Avengers take out the base and arrest Monica Cappuccino and the rest of the A.I.M.
After the battle, Noh-Varr checks in with the Supreme Intelligence of the Free Empire who informs him of the coming Phoenix force and orders him to intercept and contain it at all cost... even if it means eliminating his Avenger teammates. Thor (equipped with Beast's device to contain the Phoenix) is able to force it away from Earth.
Before the team can celebrate, Noh-Varr declares that he will take the collected energy back to the Free. The Avengers meet him, take the energy, and declare him an enemy of the team telling him never to return to Earth.
Considering the Phoenix Five a threat to Earth, Red Hulk decides to invade Utopia by himself and assassinate Cyclops. Instead of imprisoning or murdering him, Cyclops sends Red Hulk back to the Avengers with an “X” carved in his chest.
Nevertheless, Red Hulk considers that Cyclops lost the war the moment he spared his life. In Indonesia, Rachel leads a group of X-Men in a fight against Wolverine and the Avengers.
Rachel finds Hope, but her mind is drawn to the psychic plane, where she meets Professor X. After realizing that he was just keeping her busy to give the Avengers an advantage, Rachel engages him in a psychic battle, knocking everyone out, except Spider-Woman and Professor X.
Later, he states that he cannot fight his own students and erases his presence in the battle from everyone's minds. Facility is invaded by Mister Negative and his henchmen, taking advantage of the war between the Avengers and the Phoenix Five, but Hawkeye and Spider-Woman defeat them while having a discussion about their relationship.
It is later revealed that they were informed about Mister Negative's plan by Madame Hydra, who wanted to get rid of her competition. Hercules, Tiara and Madison Jeffries try to stop him, but are quickly defeated.
After talking to Finesse, she witnesses the young mutants from Utopia, now joined by Ricochet, Wiz Kid and Hollow, confronting the Academy students. When Justin Seyfert and his Sentinel try to stop the young mutants, X-23 attacks the Sentinel and forces it to retreat, deciding that the young mutants should not be deprived of their free will to leave the Academy if they want to.
Before a battle between both parties can become serious, X-23 and Finesse warn their friends that Shaw's body language indicates he does not mean to hurt anyone, but wants to help the mutant children escape. After both sides agree that the mutant children shouldn't be confined against their will, Tiara suggests faking a battle in order to justify their escape in front of the cameras at the Academy.
After the fake battle, Surge and Dust invite X-23 to join them, but she declines. The young mutants leave, but LOA decides to stay at the Academy.
After the Phoenix Five return to Earth and start to reform the world, X-23 feels that Seyfert's Sentinel should be destroyed, as it still has the directive to exterminate mutants, but he argues that this directive isn't its primary one, and that it learned to overcome it. Justin refuses, arguing that it would be like erasing the individual that his Sentinel has become; Giant-Man, X-23 and the other students decide that he is right and attack Emma.
As the Academy staff and students fight Emma Frost, both sides discuss the ethics in her attempt to destroy Justin's Sentinel. The argument is interrupted by the arrival of Captain America who explains the impending threat of the Phoenix and war with X-Men.
Jessica then leaves the mansion while Luke heads off to Utopia with the Avengers to confront the X-Men. Centuries ago, the Multi Nu-An had a recurring dream associating a red-haired girl with the Phoenix and a dragon.
He later finds a matching red-haired girl named Fungi in the streets of K'UNIL'UN and has her trained as the Iron Fist. In the present, as Lei King reads this account, Nu-An tells him that those records have been sealed until the Phoenix returns, and now he must teach Iron Fist what to do.
In the past, Nu-An asks for Leonardo da Vinci to come to K'UNIL'UN in order to help protect the world against the Phoenix's arrival; meanwhile, Fungi is submitted to a hard training, eventually manifesting the Phoenix powers. Nu-An orders her to battle the dragon Shaula as established by the ritual of the Iron Fist.
Fungi is successful in her test and becomes the Iron Fist, shortly before The Vinci sees the Phoenix coming towards Earth. Fungi is able to bond with the Phoenix and remain in control of herself, but she feels that Earth is still not ready for its evolution and departs.
While being attacked by the Purifiers, Luke Cage thinks about his wife and daughter, and fights back. Meanwhile, a group of Free priests attempt to resurrect Captain Marvel using a shard of the M'Kraal Crystal, an act that draws the Phoenix away.
The Secret Avengers then travel to Haley (the Free home world) to regroup and encounter the resurrected Captain Marvel. Marvell, Ms. Marvel and Noh-Varr attack the other Secret Avengers, capturing part of the team.
The remaining Secret Avengers try to free the Free from the mind control, but are defeated by Captain Marvel. After capturing them, Marvell sees the Free soldiers killing the people who were freed from mind control and tries to escape.
After the Vision frees Marvell, Ms. Marvel and Noh-Varr from the mind control, and after the Trees posing as the Supreme Intelligence kill themselves, the Secret Avengers fight to take the Phoenix away from Haley. Uncanny X-Men Cyclops listens to Doctor Nemesis's report that Hope's latest flare up of the Phoenix force would be noticed and prepares a contingency plan.
After Colossus's defeat, Cyclops orders Kate Kildare, his public relations specialist, to send an email warning all humanity that they will pay for the Avengers actions. After the X-Men escape from Utopia, Cyclops defines which X-Men will go to each of the five locations where Hope may be hidden.
As Enamor, Sunspot and Hepzibah are sent to Tabular NASA, they come across Luke Cage, Thing and She-Hulk and a battle ensues. Eventually, only Enamor and the Thing are still standing, but their fight is interrupted by the Apex's Savage.
Afterwards, Magic teleports Enamor away, to take him alongside Cyclops's Extinction Team to the Blue Area of the Moon. On Earth, after the battles around the world, Magneto and Locke meet Storm and an unconscious Doctor Nemesis at one of their hideouts.
While they ponder whether they should go to the Moon to help Cyclops, the Lights escape from the Avengers Academy and go to Utopia, as Hope left them a note telling them to look for UNIT. UNIT explains to the kids that the Scarlet Witch's spell of “No more mutants” angered the Phoenix, and that in other planet he witnessed the Phoenix host needing its five acolytes to calm it and succeed in bringing evolution; however, he omitted such information from Hope because he wants to witness what would happen if the host doesn't have its acolytes to succeed in controlling the Phoenix.
Danger, controlled by UNIT, knocks the kids out and erases their memories about the conversation. While the Avengers and the X-Men fought each other, Mister Sinister has built his own city (based on Victorian-era London) in the Solids' tunnels in Subterranean.
Colossus tries to get rid of Cyttorak's possession but fails; afterwards, during a meeting of the Extinction Team, the Phoenix Five reveal to Magneto, Storm, Locke and Danger (still controlled by UNIT) that Sinister is the one who told Hope about the Phoenix force, and ponder on the danger that his goals may represent to the world. The Phoenix Five leave their teammates behind and track Sinister to Anchorage, Alaska (Cyclops's birthplace), finding out that he built his city underneath it.
He is eventually defeated by the Madeline Pryor clones; shortly after, Magneto, Storm, Locke and Danger arrive at Mister Sinister's city and find out that their teammates were captured. As the Extinction Team tries to figure out a way of rescuing the Phoenix Five, UNIT suggests that Danger infiltrates Sinister's castle and let him get a closer look at the machinery of the clones.
Cyclops and Emma Frost have a psychic dinner and conversation while their bodies fight against the combined force of Avengers and X-Men, both noticing how each other is losing touch of her/his humanity. Meanwhile, Colossus and Magic escape captivity; while Piotr expresses guilt over the things he did and things he wished he had done, Island tells her brother that she succeeded in corrupting his soul, to make Colossus feel the same way she did.
After Emma confesses having a psychic affair with Enamor and inciting him to attack Wakanda, Cyclops proposes a toast in their minds; however, his body attacks Emma's, taking her share of the Phoenix and becoming the Dark Phoenix. Cyclops reflects about his power and his humanity during the battle against the Avengers and X-Men, until his conscience reaches the White Hot Room, where Jean Grey calls him an idiot.
He lets go of the Phoenix as Hope and the Scarlet Witch attack him, and wakes up handcuffed. Beast volunteers to join Captain America's team of select Avengers to intercept the Phoenix in deep space.
Wolverine warns the faculty of the crisis before joining the rest of the Avengers and heads off to Utopia to place Hope Summers (the Phoenix's likely target) in protective custody. Meanwhile, on the Shi'AR Throne world of Chandler, Gladiator prepares his ship to rescue his son Kid Gladiator (a student at the X-Mansion) after communications have failed and reluctantly ordering the Shi'AR Death Commandos to find and kill the Phoenix's host.
After the battle in Utopia, Wolverine returns to the school and is visited by Cyclops, who asks Logan for help. Both men discuss their stances regarding the Phoenix's incoming arrival and Wolverine refuses to join Scott's X-Men.
However, some of his staff members and Angel decide to join Scott in the battle against the Avengers. War bird takes Kid Gladiator away from Earth, but he escapes and engages in battle against the Avengers ; at the same time, Hope and Wolverine are attacked by the Death Commandos.
Hope is gutted by Flaw, but the Phoenix Force manifests within her, and she incinerates the Death Commandos. After the Phoenix Five return to Earth and the Avengers take Hope away from Utopia, Cyclops sends Rachel to track Wolverine.
War bird reminisces about her past and how the Shi'art aught her to be merciless, as she joins Gladiator, the Death Commandos and the Shi'AR troops against the X-Men. After the battle is over, she takes an almost dead Gladiator to be treated at the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.
Some days later, as the staff that remained at the school faces the difficulty of taking care of it by themselves, Colossus asks Kitty Pride on a date. She accepts, but at the dinner she expresses her concerns about the Phoenix Five losing control and criticizes the way they have been arresting the Avengers.
Furious, Colossus blames the school for changing her mind about him, attacking the staff and burning Kitty's arm before regretting his own actions and leaving. Brood helps Iron Man with the calculations for his mechanism to fight Cyclops and Emma Frost, while the Utopia teenagers adjust to the new school, Toad takes Husk on a date and Gladiator orders his son to return home with him, before telling War bird that she will remain on Earth to find her true purpose in life.
Kitty declares Angel as the school's first graduate and invites him to be a graduate assistant there, before Wolverine takes him, Beast, Iceman, Rachel, Hope and Professor X to join the Avengers in battle against Cyclops. Meanwhile, two weeks after being incarcerated at Rikers Island by the Phoenix Five alongside his inner circle friends, Made Kilgore tells the reader about his past and how he turned out to be the person he is.
In prison, he incites a riot and calls a helicopter to rescue him and his friends. Brew visits the church where Goya goes, noticing changes in her personality, and finds out that the Hellfire Club kids are manipulating her mind and planning an attack against the school, aided by Glob Herman.
X-Men : Legacy The staff members at the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning to have a meeting, where Rachel Summers and Iceman reveal their plan to join Cyclops's X-Men in their battle against the Avengers ; the other teachers opt to stay at the school to protect the students and prevent them from joining the battle. Later, She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Falcon (alongside his pet bird Redwing) arrive at the school to prevent more mutants from joining the X-Men against the Avengers.
Tensions arise between both groups, and although both parties try to stop a battle between She-Hulk and Frenzy, some students try to attack She-Hulk. She retaliates, severely injuring them (inadvertently), causing Rogue and other staff members to join the battle, while Redwing calls Iron Man to Westchester.
After watching Iron Man easily knocking Cannonball out, Rogue decides not to contain her powers and fully absorbs the Avengers powers; however, she starts to lose control due to She-Hulk's inner fury and Moon Knight's multiple personalities. After the unconscious Avengers are sent away from the school inside their jet, Rogue decides that she can't keep neutral in this fight, and asks Kitty to let Iceman know that she will be joining them in battle.
After the Extinction Team comes back to Earth bonded with the Phoenix Force, Cyclops sends Frenzy to Arabia to detain an armed militia. There, she saves a young girl forcibly married to a violent man which reminds her of her childhood, constantly beaten by an abusive father whom she accidentally killed one day while trying to defend herself.
After Frenzy destroys the militia's weapons, the Step ford Cuckoos volunteer to remove all the bad memories from Arabia's citizens, but Frenzy asks them not to do it arguing that the painful memories will help them resist when another warlord tries to subjugate them. Both women fight and discuss their points of view on the Phoenix Five; eventually, Rogue defeats and immobilizes Ms. Marvel, but she gets uncomfortable when Magic imprisons Ms. Marvel in a piece of Limbo brought to Earth.
Rogue regrets letting Magic put Ms. Marvel in her prison, thinking Island crossed the line, and returns to rescue the Avengers. However, Magic reveals that she let Rogue enter the prison as a test of her loyalty.
AVX: Consequences Seven days after Enamor's attack, Wolverine and students from the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning fly to Wakanda to aid in the reconstruction efforts but are warned by Storm that they are not welcome and turn back after being fired upon. Hope Summers decides to live as a normal teenager, while Iron Man and Captain Marvel search for Magneto to no avail.
Captain America convinces Wolverine to visit Cyclops, who is being held in a specialized private prison created for the reemerged mutant population, to learn where his Extinction Team might be hiding. Once returned to general population, Cyclops is joined by Jake, the only other mutant inmate in the prison.
The pair soon realize that all the guards have left as three inmates approach them brandishing shivs. Iron Man offers to help rebuild the mystical city of K'UN L'UN but Lei King turns him down and suggests that Iron Man focus on coming to terms with his own internal struggle of science and mysticism.
At the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, Magic informs Storm of Colossus's whereabouts, while Hope adjusts to life at a normal high school but still feels the need to search for Cable. In prison, Cyclops easily defeats his three attackers, due to his martial arts training, and rejects an offer to break him out, choosing instead to remain a political prisoner and not becoming a common criminal.
Storm locates Colossus in Siberia, but decides not to turn him in because of the guilt he is suffering. Magneto arrives shortly afterwards and informs Storm, that he also has decided to leave Colossus alone.
In prison, Cyclops allows Iron Man to study him for remaining effects of the Phoenix Force. As he is leaving, Jake is murdered by other inmates, prompting Cyclops to take up the earlier offer to break him out of prison.
The Avengers arrive to find the prison abandoned except for the prison warden, who delivers a message from Cyclops to Wolverine, stating that he will support Wolverine's school and continue to fight for mutant rights. Overall stating that “This series may have had its detractors, but it delivers a complete story acting as a concise set-up for Avengers Vs. X-Men and it has plenty of fun in the process.
Their interpretation of Cable's journey is complete, and they had a blast bringing that tale to light, something that particularly shines through in this closing chapter”. IGN's consensus is “If it was big, dumb action you craved, X-Sanction delivers well enough.
Trade-waiters may be better off skipping this book entirely and moving straight ahead to AVX #0 next week”. Typically, they're used as a chance to give a story two “first” issues and are either completely disposable or deceptively essential but with “AVX” #0, Marvel has found the right middle ground”, while giving credit to writers Brian Michael Bends, Jason Aaron and artist Frank CHO.
Issue #3 was given three stars with the criticism that it “is a nice looking comic that ultimately serves as little more than set-up for future fight scenes”. CBR's Doug Batista gave issue #4 three and a half stars and praised for Romina Jr's artwork, “The art seems to be John Romina Jr.'s brightest moments in this series to this point”.
Issue #1 was also given a 7.0, comparing the event to Civil War while criticizing the portrayal of Cyclops. Schengen gave issue #2 a 5.0, carping that “Romina's work seems rushed” and “Aaron's distinctive voice is toned down to the point where the shift away from Brian Michael Bends' script is far less noticeable than might be expected”.
Schengen handed issue #3 a 5.5 and stated that like Aaron's work in issue #2, “ Breaker's voice feels crushed and diminished in order to fit the mold of a dull, empty blockbuster event”. Still, Fraction finds a stronger dramatic foothold in the story, and on the whole this issue manages to close out Act 1 in reasonably strong fashion”.
ENSAAMA gave issue #0 a 9 out of 10 stating that it “does less to set up the impending crossover than to introduce the players involved, showcasing Scarlet Witch, whose return to the pages of was touted as tying directly into the event, and Hope Summers, whose manifestation of the Phoenix Effect at the end of X-Sanction seems to be the ultimate precursor to what's coming”. Michael Moran of ENSAAMA gave issue #1 a 7 writing that “#1 is a perfectly competent comic book mind you.
The art by John Romina Jr., Scott Hanna, and Laura Martin is exactly what you’d expect from this veteran trio. David Depose reviewing for ENSAAMA gave issue #3 a 5 criticizing Ed Breaker's writing, “These characters just come off as dumb.
Whether it's the X-Men pulling a magic switcheroo to escape the Avengers or Captain America suddenly deciding he's going to punch Wolverine, it feels like Breaker keeps putting the cart before the horse. Issue #4 received an 8 from Depose stating Avengers vs. X-Men #4 is fun, thrilling, exciting, and most importantly never takes itself too seriously.
Compel's artwork was critically praised in this issue. Zawisza of CBR gave issue #6 four stars, writing Coipel's art, coupled with the script from Jonathan Hickman, refreshes this series”. CBR gave issue #7 three stars, stating it “is full of sound and fury, but unlike Macbeth I wouldn't say it's signifying nothing.
Rather, it's the soundtrack to the latest surround sound, IMAX, mega action flick. Batista awarded issue #8 four and a half stars, writing Adam Hubert and John Dell jump in for the art chores, rendering architecture collapsing under tidal waves, stunning battles scenes and lots of characters shouting... Everyone has a chance to take out some aggression and the end result is not pretty, even though Hubert makes it all look cool.
Schengen of IGN gave issue #6 an 8.5, the highest score thus far, giving praise to Oliver Compel, “Unsurprisingly, Compel really nails the epic and majestic scenes involving the Phoenix Five... But Compel also nails the smaller character scenes and necessary facial work as well, leading to what is by far the most impressive and well-rounded issue of the series to date”.
Schengen gave issue #7 a 7.5 writing, “As with nearly every chapter of this event, Avengers vs. X-Men #7 is guilty of glossing over certain vital parts of the story in its charge forward. It simply doesn't propel the conflict forward in the way a concluding chapter should”.
ENSAAMA handed issue #6 a 7 while stating, “Even though is an enjoyable read, it suffers from feeling too much like a prologue. Depose gave issue #8 a 6 stating, “Right now, the plan seems to be eliciting a specific reaction rather than focusing on story... this comic comes off more like a video game than a strong narrative”.
Kelly Thompson of CBR gave issue #10 three-and-a-half stars writing, “What I once feared was going to be one of the worst crossovers I'd ever read has slowly turned a much more interesting corner in the last month, and Avengers vs. X-Men #10 by Ed Breaker and Andy Hubert continues that positive turn”. CBR gave issue #11 two stars, criticizing the death of Professor X and the marginalization of Hope Summers but found praise in the artwork of Oliver Compel, Mark Morales, and Laura Martin.
Issue #9 was the second issue of the event to receive an 8.5 by Schengen, who praised Jason Aaron's plot, stating that he “manages that all-too-rare balance of character drama and spectacle that most event comics are sorely lacking”. This is one of those chapters that makes you wonder whether Avengers vs. X-Men really needed 12 issues to be told in the first place”.
Schengen gave issue #11 a 7.5 writing, “In terms of scripting, AVX #11 is neither the strongest nor the weakest installment of the series.... Bends largely steps back and allows Compel to go to town, making this a very brisk read. Focusing primarily on Spider-Man as the last man standing against not one, but two Phoenix-corrupted X-Men, this comic puts a face on a large-scale conflict, suddenly giving this crossover some real tension and weight”.
But really, it's all about seeing who wins the fights, appreciating the techniques of the characters (and creators) and getting invested in the outcome even though it's of no material consequence.” CBR gave issue #2 two stars, criticizing that “so far the crossover that this series is stepping away from also just feels like an excuse to see some knock-down, drag-outs between fan favorites, so the need for this title, even as just some between-the-panels fun, is severely hampered.
This is a great superhero slug fest comic, but it's also easily forgettable and doesn't make a strong case for re-reading”. CBR gave issue #4 four stars stating, AVX: VS #4 comes out a winner due to the sheer level of fun and wow factor on each page.
There is no real story and both writers find a way to make this work to their advantage. CBR gave the final issue four stars as well, saying “It feels like unhelpful shorthand to praise a comic for being fun, so even though that's what “AVX VS” #6 is, let's instead praise its other qualities: it's humorous, inventive and routinely gorgeous”.
Jesse Schengen of IGN gave issue #1 a 6.0 out of 10 stating AVX: VS does exactly what it sets out to do. Schengen gave issue #2 a 6.5 and wrote, “the two match-ups this time are so random and bizarre that only hardcore fans of the artists involved need apply”.
Schengen gave issue #3 a 7.0 writing Yost's segment at least strives for more dramatic depth, but it's still over and done with almost as soon as it begins. If meatier, more character-driven tales aren't in the cards with this book, then maybe what VS. needs is either more than two segments per issue or a lower cover price.
Depose gave issue #3 a 7 stating, “With one fight feeling a little old hat and the other ready to knock your socks off, the end result of AVX: VS is still a win, albeit not the cleanest one”. Depose gave issue #5 a 2, the lowest score of the series, criticizing that “With a lackluster opening act followed by second act that needed to go completely back to formula, this issue is one ugly fight, and not in a good way”.
With a strong focus and momentum already moving forward, this feels in some ways to have the drive that the parent series could have benefited from, too”. CBR gave issue #2 three stars, exclaiming “Only about half of this book works.
CBR gave issue #3 three-and-a-half stars, writing “As a direct epilogue to AVX, Consequences succeeds where the Fear Itself Point One issues and Fearless maxi series missed their beats -- it builds on the event as opposed to eradicating it, giving readers a solid followup story dissecting the ramifications AVX has had on the Marvel Universe's major players”. CBR gave issue #4 three stars, commenting that “as a de facto X-Men title between cancellations and launches, it's doing its job.
And crucially, it's leaving characters in a more interesting place than where it found them, which means it's doing its job well”. CBR gave issue #5 four stars, saying “In AVX: Consequences #5, Keaton Gilles and Gabriel Hernandez Malta do exactly what they should: deliver a strong and logical conclusion to this weekly mini-series”.
Schengen gave issue #2 a 7.8, writing “The second chapter of AVX: Consequences narrows the focus and picks up dramatic steam”. Schengen gave issue #3 a 7.2, surmising “AVX: Consequences #3 loses a bit of its focus but remains a compelling read for X-Men fans”.
Schengen gave issue #4 an 8.3 critiquing “if unfocused, AVX: Consequences #4 is still an enjoyable read with some great visuals”. #1 December 2011 93,380 5 #2 January 2012 58,586 15 #3 February 2012 53,723 17 #4 March 2012 55,682 18 Core miniseries Avengers vs. X-Men dominated the sales charts in its first months of release, and was only beaten to the #1 spot by The Walking Dead #100 in July 2012, and Uncanny Avengers #1 in October 2012.

The next morning, Baby Steve's parents find him sleeping peacefully with Bucky Bear, except now there is a giant hole in his room and a crater in the middle of the street.
As the Phoenix Force heads towards Earth, the Guardians of the Galaxy manage to send a warning before they are destroyed by it. Having received the warning, The Avengers send a team into space as a first line of defense, while others go to Utopia to take Hope Summers, the intended host of the Phoenix Force, into custody.
Upon arrival, Magneto, Hope, Enamor and Storm discuss the situation with the Avengers. After a heated exchange, Wolverine attacks Enamor and fatally injures Storm in the process.
As the helicarrier falls, Hope, Magneto and Emma Frost leave to intercept the Phoenix Force on the Moon. Once the transformation is complete, Hope sends The Avengers back to Earth while she considers her options.
Magneto convinces Hope that humans are a threat, over Emma's protests. After Emma warns X-Men and The Avengers, Black Panther attempts an unsuccessful suicide attack on Hope and Magneto.
Hope kills Emma for her betrayal and sends a meteor shower to Earth, destroying major cities. Hope and Magneto then confront the other X-Men, offering to spare their lives if they join them.
As the battle continues, the power starts overwhelming Hope, and she begs Magneto for help. As all the others die, Wolverine is saved by Jean Grey, who returns as the White Phoenix.
Jean takes Wolverine into a time bubble and together they watch as life is slowly restored. “Rapid reaction to Marvel's Revolution and Infinite Comics Announcement” .
