COMICS: The New York Daily News Reveals Who Dies In AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #11
In the climatic final few pages of Avengers Vs. X-Men #11, Cyclops kills Charles Xavier and goes "Dark Phoenix" as the cosmic force finally sends him over the edge. "I got a little teary-eyed when we were scoping out the moment in the room with the series’ writers and editors," Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso tells The New York Daily News. "He needed to be the casualty in this story. There’s no more oh-sh-- moment that you can bring than having a son killing his father." The writer of this instalment in the series (which has so far received a mixed response from fans and critics alike) had this to say about the decision. "He was this thing that was just floating around the X-books, with not the same amount of gravitas that he once had. I did point out that he would matter more in death. The moment is shocking, and certainly will be talked about by message boards forever and ever, but it’s really about what you get afterwards. What Cyclops has to do now, is dig himself out of the biggest, deepest hole in the history of comic books." How do you guys feel about this?
