Scratch everything that happened last issue, because this one changes course and goes on a different direction. The search for Hope continues as Avengers and X-Men randomly fight across the world, and the Phoenix finally arrives. The disconnect between the main title and its "supporting" tie-ins reaches a critical point in this installment, where it becomes hard to tell when things are happening with respect to each other, despite the fact that it is all being coordinated by five writers.

Going back to the initial statement, this chapter seems to invalidate everything that happened in the previous one, or at the very least renders it pointless; this becomes evident when the characters converge on the moon and the realization dawns that issue 3 and half of 4 have been for nothing. The art improves vastly as it looks less rushed, and is nicely colored. So far, the concept sounded much better than what it has actually been; the only thing that will make it even worse is another alternate reality a la "House of M."
