Operation Phoenix part 2: Sacred Ground
The Avengers "away team" finds itself face to face with their old ally Captain Mar-Vell...but disbelieve his presense, as they'd seen him die years ago.

This issue grabbed me from the cover--I think this is probably my favorite of the tie ins' covers for AvX
so far, and though various internet news sources have given me enough information to have a good idea how this turns out, I love seeing Captain Mar-Vell back. Unlike other supposed returns of the character, this one sorta makes sense, given the presence of a cosmic entity of rebirth.
The issue opens from Mar-Vell's point of view, recalling his death, and then finding himself back among the living, though he had no proactive inclination to ever live again. He quickly gets over this when he sees Carol, and the two (lovers?) are reunited. Meanwhile
