With the debut of the Phoenix Five upsetting the balance of the "Avengers Vs X-Men" power struggle, its no surprise that the newly powered-up Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magik, Namor and Colossus are also taking over the covers of Marvel Comics' current mega-event. Today, that dominance continues with the release of Adam Kubert's variant for "Avengers Vs. X-Men" #8 featuring the Phoenix-powered quintet standing (floating?) strong with Cyclops bearing Captain America's battered shield in one hand and Thor's Mjolnir in the other.
