NO MORE AVENGERS? Marvel Teases AVENGERS VS. X-MEN Act Two

 

The Avengers are off to something of an early lead thus far in Avengers vs. X-Men, but Marvel's latest teaser suggests that might not be for long.

Promoting the second act of Avengers vs. X-Men, starting with June's issue #6, Marvel released a teaser Wednesday stating "No more Avengers" — calling back to Scarlet Witch's famous "No more mutants" proclamation at the end of 2005's House of M, which led directly to the "Decimation" era of a depleted mutant population. What type of affect this statement will have — and the identity of the person uttering it — remains to be seen.

Here's the full press release from Marvel:

Following the world changing effects of Avengers VS. X-Men #5, the Marvel Universe will face a dramatic change unlike any fans have ever seen before bringing the action packed first act to a close. Then, the comic book event of the summer kicks into overdrive as Act Two begins in Avengers VS. X-Men #6! Thought you knew everything about the Phoenix Force and what it’s capable of? Think again, True Believer!  Get in on all the excitement as Avengers VS. X-Men #5 and Avengers VS. X-Men #6, hit comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this June.
