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."

So wait I thought the X-Men were all fighting the X-Men right now because someone killed someone and it wasn't Wolverine and killing people is only okay when it's Wolverine.

If I'm following this stuff correctly (and I can't say for sure that I am), Schism was just about the morality of whether or not the X-men should you use minors in the daily combat zone that is their lives. Cyclops said yes, Wolverine said no...and after a quick fight, they agreed to disagree....conveniently splitting into two titles.

Wolverine is like the Punisher...when he first killed a dude (like in 1981, I think), it was shocking. Now he's racked up a body count that rivals that of third-world dictators and everyone just sort of ignores it. I think there was some stuff about Wolverine's X-force killing baby Apocalypse or something, but I don't really understand any of that, either.

Like it's less that they ignore it than they go like "oh well it's Wolverine who killed that guy, it's okay" but then if a non-Wolverine xman killed the same guy it's all like TWELVE ISSUES OF TORTURED SOUL-SEARCHING.

Fuck it's like the explicit reason they added him to the Avengers.

I'm pretty sure at this point that "kills people and everyone is okay with it" is Wolverine's actual superpower.
