So what will a battle between the Avengers and the X-Men entail? Since the event centers around the return of the Phoenix Force, with Scarlet Witch and Hope both playing pivotal roles in the battle, Comic Booked wants to know your opinion. Who deserves the honor (or curse) of being the vessel for the Phoenix? Who would win in a smack-down, drag-out battle between Scarlet Witch and Hope? All of our speculation will be answered soon enough, but in the meantime, let us know what you think in the comments, or you can really get into detail over in the forums.
