I can think of a lot of story arcs that I couldn’t wait for issue 2, but for some reason this one is different. Marvel has said time and time again that only one team will be victorious. Don’t get me wrong, I refuse to believe that. I’m sure they will eventually work together to stop the Phoenix Force, because once again Scott continues to drift further and further away from Xaviers dream and continues the descent into becoming the thing he used to hate so much. When Magneto is second guessing your choices, you know you have seriously fallen off the path of righteousness. All of my life people have hated Cyclops as a character, and for the first time people are stopping to really see that Cyclops is not just some whiny baby. He is seriously and mentally disturbed; he seriously believes that the Phoenix Force coming to Earth is going to be a good thing. My number one hope with this whole event is that they don’t destroy everything Cyclops has become as his characters arc is awesome. With the images they released with it we can see that Magneto and Colossus don’t even let them leave the helicarrier as they take the fight to the Avengers. This is going to be one for the books, trust me.
