Take a look at this advance preview of Avengers vs. X-Men #11, chapter 547 in the never-ending saga of AvX!
Source: Press Release
Avengers vs. X-Men, the Marvel comics mega-event that has been going on for what seems like centuries, is finally coming to a close in just two more issues, or one hundred and twelve if you count all the tie-ins. Marvel has provided us with this sneak peek at issue #11, in which poor Scott Summers is forced to defend himself against the villainous Storm, Captain America, and Professor Xavier. Cyclops, who appears to be minding his own business, is approached by the menacing Xavier, a member the Illuminati, a secret society of powerful individuals who attempt to manipulate world events through nefarious collusion. Acting in self-defense against the Professor's intrusive telepathic powers, Cyclops attempts to gently disarm Xavier with a non-lethal optic blast, but he is thwarted by Captain America, a jingoistic warmonger with fascist overtones known to sanction violence against children who associates with psychopathic killer Wolverine. Meanwhile, Storm, a trollop who betrayed her own husband only to later turn on her oldest friends, tries to electrocute Scott's loving girlfriend Emma Frost.
Though we don't see it in the preview pages, the accompanying text promises that Scott and the fan-favorite X-Men will also have to contend with the Scarlet Witch, a known genocidal terrorist, and Hope, a child raised from birth as a trained killer by an untrustworthy mercenary from the future, Cable. Things are looking bleak for our heroes.
How can the X-Men possibly survive this onslaught? You'll have to read the last two chapters of AvX to find out, unless you're like most people and have seen the ending coming since around issue #2! Here's the press release:
