Maybe Bendis is teasing fans (similar to when he said he hadn’t read any AvX issues), but he says Emma Frost will meet Jean Grey in “All New X-Men,” which comes out November. And since some have been wondering about Emma’s fate in Avengers vs X-Men, this tweet could prove that she makes it out okay.
Teen Jean, meet…

Axel Alonso stated on CBR that part of the story is about the current X-Men coming to terms with meeting the younger team from the past, but “…there’s a third entity I’m not allowed to talk about yet that will also share screen time.”
Of course, that third entity could be someone non-X-Men related, but they’ve been keeping Emma off the pages of previews and solicits for a while, teasing her death, so Bendis’ possible slip could make us a little hopeful about Emma’s outcome in AvX.
Potential Professor X death
A “fatality” will occur in the upcoming “Avengers vs X-Men” #11, which shows Cyclops and Emma Frost fighting on the cover. Based on the preview and recent events, there’s a chance Emma will be the death in #11. But November’s solicits show that “X-Men: Legacy” will get relaunched with Legion, Xavier’s son, who “embraces his father’s legacy.” So, Professor X could be the one to bite the dust in #11.
It’s all speculation at this point, so we definitely won’t know for sure until the end of Avengers vs X-Men.
PS Emma Frost has been fixed in Marvel: Avengers Alliance. She isn’t as powerful as before, but she still deals a good amount of damage.
