Not long ago we caught the cover for issue #12 of AVENGERS VS. X-MEN by artist Jerome Opena and on it we saw a fallen Avengers team, seemingly defeated by the bearer of the Phoenix Force. Thing is, we never knew the identity of the bearer because the image appeared solely as a white silhouette of the character -- until now. The latest cover reveals Cyclops on the cover of the issue and a fallen Avengers team strewn on the ground beneath him.

No Caption Provided

Now, we know that he is currently a part of the Phoenix Five and that there are presently two of them left standing -- Scott and Emma Frost. So does this mean that Emma will be the next to fall and will Scott become the new bearer of the Phoenix Force? Will he succeed in taking down the Avengers? What about Nova?

== TEASER ==

Aside from what we see here in the teaser, we should not that Cyclops is supposedly appearing in UNCANNY AVENGERS starting this fall with the launch of Marvel NOW!? The image that appeared in the Diamond solicits is very telling of what might happen in the conclusion of AVENGERS VS. X-MEN and it certainly leaves us with a lot of unanswered questions. What will this mean for Cyclops? What will it mean for the Avengers? Will they be able to forgive Scott Summers and put him on their team, or is the Marvel NOW! teaser that shows him teaming up with Wolverine, Captain America and Rocket Raccoon not really revealing as much as we think?

wonder if marvel is going to end it like: cyclops sees the destruction and puts everything back the way it was. then reverts himself to a more simple version with 3 friends from the past.

no idea how this will end, but im pretty sure Cyclops X-Men team (as we know it will have Emma, Magneto and Magik) will become more and more into dark x-men team..

Between Emma and Scott, Emma showed that she was actually aware of the things Phoenix was making her do and tried to get Scott to stop her from doing those things. Whereas Scott has never once questioned what the Phoenix is doing to him and continue to swear by it. So, I'm willing to bet Cyclops will lose everything and Emma leads the X-Men or she just takes them all to Logan with her, and they just merge at the school. Which would explain the lack of Namor-ness. What would he be doing at a school? When New Atlantis is still under Utopia.

That...that is actually kind of tenable. But wouldn't that make Cyclops/Phoenix like Sentry/Void?

I'm REALLY feeling sorry for Cyclops right about now. He's really gone off the deep end. Hasn't he learned nothing from Jean Grey?

@handsome_stud: That's . . . a really good question! His arm is almost as thin as Cyclops', and Cyclops is much farther back. I thought we didn't have to worry about this kind of thing now that Liefeld is out of mainstream comics.

Sorry, I meant the original run of the Sentry, not the abomination of bringing him into central continuity.

my guess..Cyke goes crazy with power, and realizes the phoenix can't be controlled, he realizes what the Scarlet Witch has gone through trying to control her powers and her downfall, and he sees himself on the same path. SO he wishes for things to be simpler, and the leaves the door open for the original x-men to be brought to the 616 universe...something around those lines.

Cyclops and this cover looks so BADA$$. I like Cyclops as the new phoenix. His costume looks awesome and the phoenix has increased his power, so now he's stronger.

Very few of the AvX covers have been really indicative of the overall plot. While I like this cover, I doubt we can accurately infer much of issue #12's plot from it. Although, this cover makes me wonder where Emma winds up in this thing.

Way to spoil your event Marvel. Then again this is a variant cover. The past ones had no connection to the issue it is for, so maybe this one does not either.

Young Scott Summers had every thing it took to be a natural leader.

Just like Steve Rogers.

These writers should study a long lived characters' past before they play these "what if" games with heroes that have been around for decades!

He looks like Dr. Solar Man of the Atom!

I bought the first X-men comic because Cyclops looked that cool.

But, that was a long time ago.

Seems to me that Cyclops will end up burning himself out, similarly to how the pre-Phoenix saga in the 90' cartoon was that Jean "died", but then came back corrupted.

Maybe the opposite will happen that Scott will stop being insane?

I used to get offended when Marvel would make an awful X-Men story but I'm not anymore. I just can't bring myself to care now. I used to admire Cyclops too, and now I can't relate to him or understand him at all.

Agreed. I've been reading the old school xmen/xfactor (the clarmont/silvestri and simonson years). What a huge difference in character. Cyke used to be level headed, now he's some idiot who just keeps going insane. He was kind of a tool sometimes, but you expected that, it was just who he was.

Look, its the Phoenix's fault not Cyclops, with more power Cyclops gets the more he has trouble fighting the Phoenix. Everyone is saying it's all his fault, but i'm saying it's its only partially his fault. with what over 90% of the worlds mutants gone, his controversal relationship with Emma Frost, and that he has to lead the rest of mutantkind, it's kind of know wonder he's cracking.

everybody seems to be able to forgive Jean Grey for turning into/being possessed by the phoenix force, hell she ate a star and killed billions, why is it so hard for everyone to forgive cyke? sure he hasnt been the most fan friendly character over the last few years, but hes willing to be the bad guy so that his people could live on. without him we wouldnt have the new X-force or the uncanny X-force. the last 5 years would be drastically different for mutantkind without him and his direction. think about this, if cyclops wasnt in charge of the Xmen, there would be no X-force, without X-force then mutants would not have survived Second Coming. after AvX the Xmen and Avengers will have tighter ranks then theyve ever had, which will hopefully mean that less mutants die in the next few years. even if you hate his methods, you cant argue results

I honestly don't see any redemption for Scott here. Whether he does an about-face at the end or not, he's surely lost all trust and respect from humans and mutants alike. That's why I think he's going to more-or-less be the villain in All New X-Men.

Also, I'm trying to see if I'm looking at it from the right angle, but what is that on the far right sitting atop that stone slab? It looks like Daredevil with a 9-inch long neck.
