Everyone is in on the Phoenix racing across the universe, even the K’un Lun have been drafted into the drama with visions of the battle of the Iron Fist and the Phoenix engaged in a struggle of power.

New Avengers 25 investigates the power of the Iron Fist and the secrets behind the force known as the Phoenix, as few were aware, their group has manuals on taming the energy. There is little time to spare and Lei Kung has to race to master the knowledge to pass it along to the Iron Fist. It’s a huge chunk of side story to the AvX storyline but it keeps the momentum going for yet another potential showdown in this madness. Everyone seems to have a solution against the Phoenix Force but with so many contenders only a few will make it to that final platform for a fight.

For those hoping to see some battle details about the current conflict, this is a hard deviation that falls back to the earlier weeks for extreme side reflections. While some interesting pieces do come out about the Iron Fist legend it’s hard to say this is a must have to a library for the Avengers vs X-Men conflict going on right now. If you’re a hardcore fan feel free to check it out, otherwise it might be a safe skip that will get elaboration once the issue with Iron Fist arrives.

Story:★★★½☆

Dialog:★★★½☆ 
Overall:★★★½☆

Marvel is sending a lot of goodies out today, one of those includes preview pages and the cover for Uncanny X-Force issue #25. While limited to just 2 pages it’s still a nice look and it sets up some tension as that sniper scope looms over one of the residents. As usual no text is included with the panels so you’re left to come up to your own conclusions on what’s going on which only makes the tension that much greater.
