And so it ends. The Avengers and a handful of X-Men -who also happen to be Avengers- witness the final stand of the Dark Phoenix against the combined power of Hope Summers and the Scarlet Witch. Wanda Maximoff finds redemption for her past sins, Tony Stark has an epiphany, Nova comes back to bookend the saga and to some extent accomplish his initial mission, the mutant race reignites, Hope finally gets to do something she wanted to do since issue #0, and Scott Summers... well, he loses more than the battle.

Going back and forth between the conclusion of issue #10 and the final confrontation, the former sequences take care of the characterization, while the latter are all about the action. If a winner needs to be picked, The Avengers probably would take the prize, and not because Cyclops ended up being the bad guy. From the start, the X-Men were set up for failure, had less participation in the story, and their most iconic or powerful members seldom appeared. Although the event found a solid footing on its final chapters, it was too little too late, and was not everything it could have been.
