Avengers Vs. X-Men begins its third and final act in August, and Marvel are teasing the event's big finish. No, Highlander isn't being brought into the Marvel Universe and getting the Phoenix Force, but "There Can Only Be One" host, as the Phoenix is tired of being split amongst five members of the X-Men. Interestingly, the teaser features the reaching hands of Avengers like Iron Fist and Iron Man alongside the hand of Wolverine and others. Will an Avenger wind up as the solo host of the Phoenix Force before all this is through, and what does that mean for the connection between the two teams? And how, if at all, is this connected to the Jean Grey image from earlier today? Find out in Act 3. Marvel's official description is below. Avengers Vs. X-Men – Act 3 Begins: THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!
This August, the comic book event of the year – Avengers VS. X-Men – reaches critical mass as Earth’s Mightiest make their last stand against the Phoenix Force. But when the Phoenix Force yearns for a single host, who will it choose? There can only be one! Act Three kicks off in Avengers Vs. X-Men #9, hitting comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this August.
