Marvel has released Patrick Zircher's cover for "Avengers Vs. X-Men: Consequences" #1, the first of the five issue miniseries exploring the fallout of "Avengers Vs. X-Men." Zircher's cover features Cyclops, who had previously been depicted as a chalk outline, defeated at the feet of Captain America, Thor, Spider-Man, Thing and Iron Man. The reveal of Cyclops as the defeated figure should come as little surprise, considering the events of "Avengers Vs. X-Men" #11 and the new fully-revealed "Avengers Vs. X-Men" #12 variant cover by Jerome Opena.
"In 'Consequences' some problems are solved and some get worse," Gillen told CBR in July. "The villains of the Marvel Universe don't really play a significant role in this story. This is a story about the internal shake down. The question of what a villain is was the heart of my 'Uncanny' run, and kind of the second half of 'AvX' as a whole, really. 'Consequences' is very hero centric. It's similar to books like 'X-Men: Schism' which was about the emotions of Scott and Wolverine. I'm hoping to achieve a similar intensity here."
