I'm calling it right now--there will eventually be a reference to the group of hosts chosen by The Phoenix in yesterday's Avengers vs. X-Men #5 as "The Phoenix Force," if not a miniseries or attempt at an ongoing, a la the Infinity Watch that sprung forth from The Infinity Gauntlet.
At any rate, Marvel Comics has made available a three-page preview of next month's issue, as well as the cover from the issue which was--for obvious reasons--previously kept under wraps.
With the status-quo altering events of yesterday's issues in the rear view mirror, how will it affect the rest of the story of Avengers vs. X-Men? And how will the Phoenix Force work, now that it has more than one host? Will it mean a more stable and controlled Phoenix Force or just five people running around, out of control and seething with power?
