When we last checked in with our warring groups of heroes they were on the moon with the Phoenix fast approaching, and rather than drag it out, it actually showed up this week! It comes to the moon looking for Hope but is instead met by Iron Man in what I can only call “Phoenix Buster Armor”.
Tony fires his disrupter and everything goes boom with a bright flash of light blinding everyone. When it all clears up, the Avengers are battle damaged but all still alive.
And the X-Men?
The X-Men are the Phoenix.
