The Phoenix Force, the spirit of destruction and rebirth, is going to Earth, and it is assumed that it seeks Hope Summers as its latest host. The X-Men are trying to protect Hope while Avengers want to safeguard her before Phoenix arrives. According to Marvel, this event will show Hope crossing paths for the first time with the Scarlet Witch, the person responsible for the mutant decimation in the Marvel Universe.
The story is preceded by the 4-issue miniseries Avengers X Sanction, in which Cable, presumed as dead after the Second Coming event, returns from the future to prevent Hope's death. In a desolated future, he is informed by Blaquesmith that the Avengers somehow harmed Hope and caused such future, prompting Cable to save Hope by exterminating the Avengers before they can get to her.Here's another snippet from Wikipedia on tie-ins for this event:
Marvel is going to release a 6 issue Tie-In namely Avengers Vs X Men Versus. Each issue will contain 2 fights from Av X in detail. Marvel confirmed that it'll be the only special tie-in book of the series.So Hope is going to meet Scarlet Witch? Ooh, I wonder if Hope is gonna chew her out for endangering mutantkind over Daddy Issues? It looks like Wolverine and Beast are on The Avengers team. Hey, maybe those two will have a proper fight with Cyclops this time! What do you think?
