After Monday's reveal of the cover to Avengers vs X-Men #1, which raised some questions on its own, Marvel dropped this cover in to us exclusively, along with the official solicitation text for this tie-in issue of New Avengers.
The crossover marks longtime Avengers writer Brian Michael Bendis's last hurrah with the franchise, as revealed last week during his conference call announcing Walter Simonson joining him for his final arc on Avengers.
We know the Phoenix Force is central to this crossover, and there has already been a lot of speculation about who will wind up hosting it, but it's safe to say no one saw this one coming.
