good to know
I have familiarity with many Phoenix story-lines and the Phoenix has always been dissuaded from destroying the Earth by the people the Avengers took an army to "talk to"
To be fair, I've not assigned the "suck" or "awesome" designations to anyone here. And honestly, do the laws of physics really apply to the Marvel Universe (or any comic based universe, for that matter)? If so, I'm calling bullshit on about seventy years of stories.
Of course the Phoenix hasn't destroyed the earth. Guess what? Neither has Dr. Doom, Magneto, Galactus, etc., etc., etc... Why? Because Marvel wants to keep publishing comics, not because no one of their fictional characters hasn't actually tried. Phoenix actually destroyed an entire race in its first go-round. It's done it again in this current run. It certainly posed a threat in many appearances in between. That's all I'm saying. To deny it is putting your head in the sand, plugging your ears, and going "nah, nah, nah....can't hear you". It's on paper.
