See, a giant world-destroying force called the Phoenix was headed for Earth and it intended to possess and inhabit Hope Summers, granddaughter of Scott Summers and Jean Grey (sort of, let's not go there) and make her destroy the world. The Avengers thought she should be imprisoned, the X-Men actively wanted her to absorb the Phoenix, and Wolverine just wanted a beer.
I cannot tell you guys how fucking annoyed I am by the whole concept of the Phoenix. It was the only god damned plot Jean Grey ever got, and they did it to her over and over and over again, and when they stopped being able to do it with her they just shoved her grandkid into her place.
Deep breaths. Anyhow. I am here now to explain to you the funnier parts of AVX. I don't think anyone can explain it fully.
At least, not sober.

That's right. Avengers vs. X-Men ends with a Let's Be Friends speech.
