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."

No, Marvel just prefer to *avoid mentioning* the body counts, by coming up with bullshit like 'the Hulk never killed a soul on a rampage!!' and then blatantly ignoring what would be high-end body counts in events like Civil War, Secret Invasion, and Fear Itself - the latter of which had the entirety of New York and a good portion of DC annihilated. Marvel just put the blinders on and use a body count as a number, not a visible thing.

But then, acknowledging said body counts would make anyone living in 616 New York look fucking insane..

And that's what's making the semi-annual "events" look increasingly unbelievable. There's no broader consequences. At least when Doctor Who did it, they mentioned things like people clearing out of London for Christmas and increasing suicide rates. There's nothing like that in Marvel.
