Avengers vs. X-Men Archives
When Captain America led the Avengers to invade the sovereign mutant nation of Utopia in 2012, demanding that the X-Men hand over innocent teenager Hope Summers to be imprisoned on the moon for crimes she might one day commit under the influence of a bird-themed cosmic space god, The Phoenix Force, it kicked off one of the most infamous super-mega-crossover events in history: Avengers vs. X-Men.
Of course, that was only the beginning of the atrocities committed by the Avengers, who were treated by Marvel as the heroes of Avengers vs. X-Men despite being the clear villains. Iron Man caused the Phoenix Force to be split into five parts, each infecting different X-Men known as the Phoenix Five. Together, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Colossus, Magik, and Namor created a paradise and ended all war on Earth, but, jealous of their success, the Avengers battled to tear it all down. Unfortunately, at that time, rival movie studio Fox held the movie and television rights to the X-Men, necessitating that the X-Men be relegated to a second-class franchise, their characters defamed, a process which continued until Marvel's parent company, Disney, announced it was buying Fox in 2018.
An old saying goes: it takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a village of comic book creators to write a super-mega-crossover event like this one. Creators involved in Avengers vs. X-Men included Jason Aaron, "The Great One" Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman, Matt Fraction, John Romita Jr., Olivier Coipel, and Adam Kubert.
