The Dark World, and splits it into three parts. Iron Man enlists the help of Spider-Man and the other Avengers — the Hulk, Hawkeye, Falcon, Black Widow, and Captain Marvel — to find the three parts of the cube, put it back together, rescue the mutants and save the world from the evil Loki.
The first act is a sort of snooze of exposition with some really cool effects, like a battle with a bunch of aliens on cars that seem to drive themselves around the arena and heroes flying on to the stage on wires. There are lots of motorcycle tricks and more than a few well-timed explosions that will scare the bejesus out of all the parents twiddling on their phones.
After a minute intermission, the second act picks up considerably, with four large battles between groups of heroes and a series of villains in increasingly laughable costumes. There are a lot more motorcycles jumping around on sets that are put up and taken down in between scenes while the audience is distracted by videos played against the ever-transforming back wall of the stage. The climax is a battle between about a dozen heroes and a couple of dozen villains and henchmen where people fly around the stage on various hovercraft, careen about on motorcycles, and Bruce Banner turns into the Hulk, the only effect that is actually very cool and the one that got the biggest cheer from all the kids in attendance.
Back in the s, long before Marvel was acquired by Disney, they signed an impressively tight contract with Universal for the rights to the characters in use within theme park attractions.
The contract limits the use of the characters on the east coast of the country to Universal Orlando with even tighter restrictions within a mile radius of the Orlando parks. The contract does have a few stipulations, like ensuring upkeep of the rides, but overall is definitely more favorable to Universal than Marvel.
Since that initial contract, Disney has bought Marvel, pumped millions of dollars into it and made it one of the most popular brands in modern film history.
With billions of dollars in sales annually Marvel has proven to be a cash cow for Disney. The company, long known for its theme parks tie-ins, has already announced a ride in Hong Kong along with a small exhibit at Disneyland in California. While Marvel is slowly but surely being rolled out into the Disney parks globally back here in Florida, that airtight contract from the s still blocks them from building anything at their most popular resort complex.
Almost everyone can agree that Universal and Disney are in talks of some kind regarding the use of Marvel. Doombut Disney has yet to do this outside of a short-lived meet and greet with Starlord and Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy that was featured during a special event last August. The lack of in-park attractions for updated Marvel characters such as Guardians, Ant-Man and others, point to larger issues with the contract, one that both sides likely recognize.
With Disney practically printing money with Marvel, many rumors of a buyout of the contract have been floating around. Parkscope, a tourism site that specializes in Universal, has stated The Hulk coaster will be getting a major update later this year or early next. Several X-Men feel uncomfortable about the way the Phoenix Five are treating their prisoners.

As the Avengers arrive back in K'un-L'un, they are surprised by Cyclops, strengthened after absorbing Magik's portion of the Phoenix force. Hope absorbs the dragon's energy and manages to stave off Cyclops's advance.
She falls back behind the Scarlet Witch and with a combination of both their powers, Hope sends Cyclops to the Moon. On the Moon, Cyclops comes to the realization that he will need Emma Frost's power as well in order to defeat Hope. Cyclops attacks Emma Frost to take her share of the Phoenix force, and uses the power to kill Professor X.
Cyclops then becomes Dark Phoenix. In the present battle against the Dark Phoenix, the allies lose ground swiftly as the Dark Phoenix starts to burn the world. The Phoenix escapes Cyclops's body and enters Hope. Together, Hope and the Scarlet Witch wish away the Phoenix, but only after Hope uses the power to extinguish the fires of the Dark Phoenix and restore the mutant population.
In the aftermath, Cyclops is placed under arrest, but willingly accepts this so he can begin his eventual desecration of humanity, and Captain America decides to put together a new team of Avengers in order to mend the bond between the two sides, while Hope joins the Jean Grey School. VS[ edit ] During the battle on Utopia, Iron Man gains the upper hand in his fight with Magneto by siphoning magnetic energy from Jupiter.

Meanwhile, Thing fights Namor in the sea beneath Utopia, and pins him beneath the teeth of a giant anglerfish. However, Captain America survives the explosion and manages to knock out Gambit.

In Ukraine, Thor shatters Emma Frost's diamond form, launching the shards into space. As the shards fall back to Earth, they rip through Thor's body and reassemble on the ground. Thor, severely injured from the shrapnel, succumbs to Frost's Phoenix powers.
The battle is interrupted when Psylocke arrives at the scene; Hawkeye threatens to shoot her head unless Angel stops fighting. He complies, but is still shot by Hawkeye, and later reports it to Emma Frost.

She points out that he cannot let the Phoenix make him lose touch with his humanity, and he heads back to Earth deciding that he needs to preserve the man that he has always been, not letting the Phoenix change him.
