On a story level, the focus of 2009's X-Men "Second Coming" crossover, Hope Summers, will once again be the center of attention in "Avengers Vs. X-Men," as the presumed host for the returning Phoenix Force. In fact, it's the threat of the returning Phoenix Force that will instigate the conflict in the first place, Alonso says. "The Phoenix Force is the spirit of destruction and rebirth. It razes worlds to create something new. It's bad news if you happen to be living on the world about to be razed. It's great news if you're what's going to be the outcome of that world."

Also taking center stage is the Scarlet Witch, who, in many ways, instigated this conflict years ago when she used her reality-altering powers to all but erase mutantkind from the planet. Bendis, who scripts her story in the series' prologue issue, told the newspaper,"She's been on a road of almost impossible-to-perceive redemption over the last few years and now is going to come face-to-face with the Avengers."

You haven't seen 'Source Code'? No, I see what you're saying. I was referring to the tendency of writers to latch on to a particular aspect of a character (especially something like 'crazy') and utilize it at every opportunity. Aside from Jean and Raven, there's also Alpha Flight's Aurora.

Or Pym being a wife beater...despite the fact he only hit Jan once during a psychotic episode and that the only reason they were married in the first place is because Jan knowingly took advantage of the fact that Pym was going through a case of chemically induced of dissociative identity disorder.

I would argue that that's different in that it was how Pym was incorrectly labeled, and not how he was portrayed (until Ultimates), whereas in each of the other cases the worst fears about the characters were in fact proven to be true. (I also tend to go easy on Jan. The Pym marriage occurred during the period where every female character was scheming to get married, and she had just been kidnapped by the soon-to-be-groom. She simply behaved the way female characters did at the time.)

I completely forgot about that little factoid of history. Certainly clears up a lot of aggravation had I with Jan, thanks.

Yes, and look at how well Paul Cornell handled Aurora. "I've got disassociative personality disorder, and I know how to handle it. I can handle you as well with one hand tied behind my back."

I have been mostly undercover; the laptop I am borrowing is not "scans friendly".
