The Avengers and X-Men have learned that the all-powerful embodiment of both death and rebirth known as the Phoenix Force is on a crash course for Earth…and it needs a new host to unleash its immeasurable power.

Well Marvel is still changing the Universe with major event after event and this makes me wonder when they will do what DC Comics did and start all over. Well if they do it will be done the Marvel way with much fanfare and flare. Perhaps they will join the Ultimates with the original universe, wouldn’t that be something. Well before I let my imagination get away from me one thing in the Media publication caught my eye it said, “You’ve heard It’s Coming—and this April the War Is Here in AVENGERS VS X-MEN #1! All your favorite super heroes enter—and only one team will emerge victorious!” What that means I am not sure but you can bet we will be there for you our readers.
