It all comes to an end in October with the release of Avengers vs. X-Men #12.  Marvel sent out a new teaser image that puts Jean Grey and the Phoenix Force front and center.

Who will win?  Marvel wants you to take to Twitter with the #avx tag, though I think many of you will use the comment section below to fight it out… with words.

Avengers vs. X-Men #12 arrives October 03, 2012.

      I still don’t believe in Marvel. I’m sorry. Though I would really love to see Jean back, not an alternative teenage version, I still think Quesada is just mocking us. Again.

        Last time they did this when I was paying attention it would up being Colossus. Maybe this time it will be Nightcrawler?

    I might not be able to tell who wins, but the loser is obvious: The poor people who still had hope (not the Summers kind) when this series started.

    Are we sure that’s Jean Grey and not Hope Summers? Seriously, I have no idea how anyone could have followed this “event” due to the number of crossover issues and having to deal with a 12 issue series. Even if they put the series together in a full edition it’s still hard to follow. There is such a thing as “too much”.

    I have to say, I agree with Taz. The body-shape in that picture seems a lot more like a teenage girl than like old-school Phoenix.

      It would be nice, but Hope (at least the way she’s drawn in anything I’ve read with her in it, doesn’t have curly hair, nor is it that long. That being said, I suppose it could be a swerve to make us think it’s Jean. That also being said, I don’t hold that much faith in Quesada to actually give us something that would make more sense than bringing Jean back from the dead, except at a time/dimension/other-tired-gimmick when she was a teenager.

    Well, since you know everything has to go back to the way it was before the series started A.) What’s the difference? and B.) Who cares? Read about the death and resurection of Jean Gray so many time I got whiplash.

    What is Rachel Summers doing during all this?

    I’ve been wondering about Rachel Summers ever since they introduced Hope. Also: if that picture is supposed to be Hope Summers, she got a really nice set of hair extensions somewhere along the way.

    Its Emma Frost. Jean’s been inhabiting her mind since Emma and Scott got caught mentally doing “it”.

      Now THAT would be a good swerve. I can’t be the only one who despises Emma Frost as a character, can I?

    Scott finally loses it completely and starts dressing as his dead ex-wife. Bet you didn’t see THAT coming.

    Sure that’s not one of Scott’s other Reds?
