Synopsis for "Avengers Vs. X-Men (Part Eleven)"

In Colorado, Captain America is talking carefully to someone, asking for his help, stating that he is needed by the Avengers to win this war against Cyclops. Finally, the mysterious person is revealed to be Hulk, who agrees, saying "Hulk will smash for you".

In Wisconsin, Rogue asks for asylum to someone, commenting that she is against what the Phoenix Five and Cyclops have done, a light flashes and Professor X appears, welcoming Rogue, along with the Avengers. While Iron Man asks if he is sure about what he is doing, more X-Men appears, saluting the Avengers, as Xavier states that in their minds there's nothing hidden from him. Iceman asks Xavier about what they have to do now, if they are going to stop Cyclops, what the telepath painfully agrees.

In Utopia, Emma confronts Cyclops about what both of them are thinking, to take each others portion of the Phoenix Force by beating each other up. And Emma taunts Cyclops to burn this world and start all over again. When both realize their corrupted thoughts, Scott notices something, who is Charles standing in the beach, claiming that he will fulfill its promise to help Cyclops, even if that means to stop him for once and for all. Scott refuses Charles' offer, leading the other to warn Cyclops he's about to shut him down. Scott starts to generate fire from his hands when Professor X uses his abilities to nullify Cyclops' power and force him to stand still. In that moment, the combined forces of the Avengers and the X-Men arrives, as well as Emma.

Captain America orders the Avengers to stop Frost and Summers, Scott struggles to get free from Xavier's control while Emma is attacked by Storm. Scott manages to launch an optic blast to Xavier, who's protected by Captain America's shield. The Scarlet Witch continues to attack Summers before being attacked with fire by Emma Frost, who is literally smashed by Hulk, who's double fist pound drives her through the ground into the ocean.

Cyclops rises from the ground and heads to attack Xavier, but is interrupted by Magneto, who tells him he brought Xavier to the island. This angers him, and tries to burn Magneto, but Max is protected by his daughter. Scott is then distracted by Thor, Hawkeye and Iceman until Professor X manages to confront him again, but he's overpowered by Cyclops.

A enraged Emma returns and attacks Hulk with her pyrokinesis. Knowing he will not be able to win this fight, Scott takes Emma's portion of the Phoenix Force. Xavier attacks him, trying to take him down. Scott states he will not take orders from Charles, and after he shouts "THAT IS ENOUGH!" Scott agrees with Xavier ("It is") by somehow killing him.

After a moment of silence, Cyclops, briefly in control, begins crying about what he was forced to do. Wolverine and Hulk make a fastball special, but it is ineffective, as Scott burns Logan. When Thor tells the Captain it is time to stop him, Rogers replies that it is too late: Before the eyes of all the X-Men and the Avengers, Cyclops willingly (because he wants to experience Jean Grey's pain) becomes the Dark Phoenix.
