Avengers vs X-Men: Emma Frost vs Cyclops covers

The “Avengers vs X-Men” #11 variant and “Uncanny X-Men” #18 cover depict Emma Frost and Cyclops in conflict and in passion whilst they experience the force of the Phoenix.

Sarah Pichelli’s “Avengers vs X-Men” #11 variant will be available in sketched and colored forms.

As noted in the main Avengers vs X-Men #11 cover, the word fatality is especially marked. Who will die?! An Avenger?! Another student?! Cyclops? Emma Frost?! Or…what about Squirrel Girl?!

    I wonder where the other three of the Phoenix Five went?

  • TonezBalonez

    OMG. I love these covers!

  • airdreams

    Why are they crying on the cover of AvX 11……

    • Aimee

      They just found out they’re both comic book characters.

    LOL They’d better ask Sophie for her suggestion
    that how to escape from a fictional world into the reality. ;)

    Wow, these covers are really good. Of course hoping Emma doesn’t die (though I’d take her dying a hero over going back to villainy any day).

    I know it’s comics and often the most logical path is the one they DON’T follow, but if anyone’s going to lose control of the Phoenix, she should be the last person to do so. Not only is she a telepath and has better defenses against mind control and such, she has also received signs of the Phoenix a while ago (specifically at the end of Second Coming and when that Jean-like figure appeared before her and told her to prepare). I’ve read somewhere else that Marvel supposedly has been building this up for years, so that could be one of the plot points – though they probably just meant all the events centered on Hope.

    Also, if you look at the phoenixes’ outfits, you’ll notice everybody but Emma is in red… I know white is her usual colors, I don’t think it means anything in this case, but the others… Aren’t they supposed to “heal” the world before losing control? Aren’t they supposed to be the good guys, at least at first? Then they should all have green/white clothes as well.
    I don’t remember Illyana, Namor or Cyclops wearing red costumes, at least while in the X-Men, so having their phoenixes costumes red may mean something afterall. Not necessarily about the good/dark phoenix thing, maybe in regards of how much control they still have over themselves. Because if Emma could choose her signature color instead of the red uniform the phoenix made for the rest, maybe that’s an indication that she’s more in control than the others.

    … Nah. Probably the others just don’t care at all about whatever color they’re wearing. But I still find it interesting that the other four are all in red, or at least with a red phoenix symbol.

    I think she will confront Cyclops and tell him that he is EVERYTHING Charles’s didn’t want mutants to be and it ends up with one of them dying.  GO EMMA!

  • white phoenix

    Can emma do what jean never did,control the phonix force?
    In uncanny 14 sinister shows an army of jean clone!
    If the relation of scott and emma survive to this thing will be forever!
    Go Emma the best x-woman of all time!!!!

    I love emma frost (bitchy, confident, feminist, I’m french so no wander why), but I love jean a little more
    I loved the all Scott/emma psychic affair in new x-men, how she helped him, in her “sexual therapy” way.
    But I want jean back, and I think She and Scott belong to each other.
    I don’t want the white queen to die though, I’d rather see actual cyclops die. For we gonna have the young scott and jean (from the 60′s) back, after AvsX (via some kind of time traveling).
    So let emma express her true “queen” nature, beside namor, and let actual Scott and Jean be together in death/WHR/infinty or whatever, and young Scott and Jean rebuild a new life together, free from the heavy bagage the couple were caring on (phoenix, dark phoenix, madeleine, cable, rachel, wolverine, emma…)
    sorry for my english
