    And instead it will probably be the event that brings Jean Grey back to life.

    I'm calling it. Cyclops is going to cause all of this by being a massive dick... again.

    I was wondering about that, but I wonder what would happen to Hope as a character then.

    :lolol  "When I look at Hope I see JEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAN!"

    Oh, now that you brought that up, will this "solve" schism?

    NVM: looks like Wolverine is on Avengers side.

    It isn't just Wolverine, Beast and from the looks of it, Storm, are also on the Avengers side. It's really a funny bit, because those 3 are 3 of the most prominent/recognizable X-Men ever and you put them with the Avengers?? Plus, when you're a bystander looking at Cyclops lineup of X-Men, they're all villains or sometimes villains (Magneto, White Queen, Namor, Juggernaut - okay it's Colossus, but with the helmet, a lot of people wouldn't know.)

    That actually got me thinking, who the heck is left with Cyclops that's really a well known X-Man that someone who hasn't read comics in a while would know? Jubilee? Psylocke (who's actually on both teams)

    Gambit, Rogue, Nightcrawler, Iceman, Shadowcat are some more well known X-Men, and they're with Wolverine, and most likely will side with the Avengers. This somehow feels a bit similar to Civil War, Seems to me we're going to get a lot of skewed characterization in this coming arc.

    Isn't this somehow also tying back to Hope Summers as well?

    I think it was mentioned it will, and hopefully it will resolve the entire "Is she or is she not a/the Phoenix" that they've kept teasing us the last few years. Honestly I feel like Marvel doesn't know what to do with her. For a mutant "messiah" she's done very little.

    Those 3 were also Avengers.

    I don't agree that they would side with Wolverine if Wolverine fought on the side of the Avengers. That just wouldn't make sense. I mean I know they went with Wolvie in schism, but I don't think they would fight against the x-men.

    I know those three are Avengers, I just find it funny that in a crossover event, your lead image features 3 very prominent X-Men not being X-Men but being Avengers.

    I know it wouldn't really make much sense but Marvel has a way of twisting characters. Look at Civil War! Heck 30 years ago, Cyclops helped form X-Factor because he saw the X-Men allying themselves with Magneto, didn't like the extreme direction they were taking and thought someone should be there teaching young mutants to use their powers in peaceful co-existence with humans. Where are we now?

    Yeah, you'd think these guys would have learned from the recent Civil War. With heroes like these, who needs villains?

    :lol

    I'm getting tired of all of the events. What happened to just having a single comic, with the occasional crossover with another comic, and the SUPERRARE major crossover event.

    I actually like the story behind this "event".

    - The Phoenix force is returning to Earth.
    - Everyone assumes that it is Hope Summers, the Mutant Messiah and "hope" for the future of mutantkind that will become the next Phoenix
    - Cyclops and Magneto decide they want to protect her
    - - Cyclops because why? Reminds him of the Jean situation?
    - - Magento why? To use her to finally, FINALLY, take over?
    - Avengers do their normal "We are the GREATER good, must protect the world!" speel
    - Avengers and X-Men square-off, also alludes to more "Schism" events with Wolverine siding with the Avengers against Cyclops.

    But I agree, this is just a big stunt to bring back Jean Grey (her descendant Hope Summers is already here, Rachel Summers is here as well), etc.

    Watch the Phoenix pick someone totally random ... probably Rogue, they like to put her in the spotlight all the time.

    Marvel needs to pull a DC and just reboot their entire universe. These "events" are quite annoying and hard to follow. The real problem is every time they get a new writer in charge, he/she wants to leave their mark on the comic industry and/or try to make the characters their own and it's really conflicting when every writer/editor wants to be "God" of a comic universe, it just causes chaos.

    That's what I like about manga, one artist/writer through the whole series, the story actually evolves, the characters grow and the series actually progresses.

    Ugh, another Marvel Civil War idea.


    Why can't they just make a Marvel VS DC comic?

    Case in point, Cyclop's X-Men features a whole cast of reformed villains! Magneto, White Queen, Namor, and Colossus (and he's more villain-like now that he's the new Juggernaut) :D
