The Original Extinction Team

Avengers vs X-menEdit

During the Avengers vs X-Men where X-men fought the Avengers for Hope Summers to become Phoenix but five members of the Extinction Team became The Phoenix Five. As each one of them falls the portions goes to those who were not deafened and make them stronger. Cyclops was the last one and became Dark Phoenix and killed Charles Xavier. Thanks to Hope and The Scarlet Witch and some help from Jean Grey, the Phoenix left him and became one with hope who ascended as the White Phoenix and combined Wanda's powers and wish away the Phoenix and brought back the mutant race. Cyclops was sent to a prison but broke out with help of Magneto, Magik, and Danger but lots of the X-men lost their trust for him.
