Wolverine was thrown out of the plane by the Avengers over and into Antarctica; he wonders the ice cold terrain with only a polar bear skin (a fresh kill) to keep him warm, and then he finds Hope. At the same time somewhere out within the universe Thor and other superheroes try to keep The Phoenix energy at bay but fail in their endeavor, the Phoenix has consumed another world, next stop Earth.
Within several places on the Earth the members of the Avengers and X-men are fighting each other in order to find Hope Summers. Wolverine has found her but none of the others know that. Wolverine hates The Phoenix for what it did to Jean Grey, and now everyone expects The Phoenix to possess Hope.
Wolverine and Hope’s journey has led them to the headquarters at A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) in order to hijack a rocket to the Moon. It seems a little odd that they would want to go hide on the Moon but that is where the story is headed.
Wolverine and Hope land on the Moon in an area created by the alien race the Skrulls, it seems that it is a breathable environment because no one is wearing protective space suits. The Avengers are there waiting for them.
Hope expresses her disappointment at Wolverine for revealing their whereabouts but she should fell lucky considering Wolverine wanted to kill her in the first place. The X-men follow them there as well; they there teleported with Magik’s mutant ability but everyone is too late, The Phoenix has arrived.
This comic book issue is short and there is not too much more information given towards this story. However, there are some nice visuals during the battle scenes between the Avengers and X-men. No one in particular stands out in this issue; it seems that it is just there to move the story along for The Phoenix’s arrival to Earth.
