Uncanny X-Men #13 Spoilers (AvX Tie-In)

Spoilers: Cyclops, Emma, Magik, Colossus and Namor go to the moon where both Hope and the Avengers are. Meanwhile, Psylocke, Magneto and Storm regret they couldn't be there as well. They suggest using Pixie to reach the Moon, but Storm says she escaped the Avengers Academy along with the other kids and don't know where they are. The kids come back to Utopia as Hope left them a note telling them to look for Unit. Back to the X-Men, Storm reveals her husband knocked her out. Psylocke says the Red Hulk broke her arm. They all contemplate the fact that the Gold side's X-Men joined Cyclops and that only Wolverine, Quicksilver and Beast turned against them. In Utopia, Unit explains to the kids that Wanda's spell of "No more mutants" angered the Phoenix and that Hope and her five acolytes were needed to calm it. The kids asks Unit why he didn't tell Hope she needed her Lights to tame the Phoenix, to what Unit replies that he wanted to see what would happen if Hope couldn't control the Phoenix. Magneto, Psylocke and Storm debate about ways to reach the Moon. They think of Danger, but they don't know her whereabouts. As the Phoenix comes closer and tries to bond with Hope on the moon, Psylocke suffers a momentary psychic breakdown. Unit forces Danger into fighting the kids, knocking all of them out. Danger places them on the beach of Utopia with no memories of what just happened. On the Moon, the Phoenix bonds with Cyclops, Emma, Magik, Colossus and Namor.

So it was the Red Hulk who broke her arm... good to know that Iceman gave that bastard a good beating!

I'm honestly scared by Cyclops and the other four X-Men becoming the Phoenix hosts... that seems to imply that the X-Men will be the villains in this event, and therefore they will be defeated by the Avengers in the end. This sucks.

Anyway, I wonder how the other X-Men will react to this. Magneto will surely like it, but I think people like Psylocke and Storm should feel wary about the Phoenix bonding with the Extinction Team. If the Extinction Team indeed becomes the villains in the end, I can see Betsy and Ororo siding with the Avengers. Which sucks, but at least is better than they being defeated and imprisoned as well.

As for the Lights, I loved this explanation for their existence! If we remember how Second Coming ended (with Hope awakening her powers and presenting the Phoenix energy signature during her fight against Bastion, and soon the five new mutant signals appeared in Cerebra), this makes a lot of sense.

I hope that the Lights (including Idie) will still play a big role in AvX. Although they may not be useful anymore, since one of the Lights (Kenji) is currently dead... or is he??
