Cyclops will go too far in AVENGERS VS X-MEN #11

Someone dies in the finale of The Avengers VS X-Men #11. That's all you should know... if you don't want to look below the Spoilers sentence, which should be coming... now.


With the epic Avengers VS X-Men saga coming to an end, someone of course has to die. Unfortunately the death will be at the hands of none other than the now Phoenix crazed, Cyclops; but who will die at the hands of Summers? His teacher/father figure, Charles Xaviers.

For those of you who haven't been follow the AVX storyline, here's the gist of it: Hope Summers is destined to bring equality for Mutants, but in order to do this she must embrace the Phoenix Force (basically a symbiote). The X-Men want to train Hope to embrace it, where the Avengers wish to keep her safe and away from it.
The Avengers and The X-Men are now in a battle. Cyclops, Emma Frost, Colossus, Majik and Namor get possessed by the Phoenix and have now become The Phoenix Five.

This is what Marvel's editor in chief Axel Alonso had to say about the death of Professor X's death:

"He needed to be the casualty in this story. There’s no more oh-sh-- moment that you can bring than having a son killing his father. 
"He was this thing that was just floating around the X-books, with not the same amount of gravitas that he once had. I did point out that he would matter more in death. The moment is shocking, and certainly will be talked about by message boards forever and ever, but it’s really about what you get afterwards. What Cyclops has to do now, is dig himself out of the biggest, deepest hole in the history of comic books."

Here's the preview:

What do you think about the death of Charles Xavier? Has Scott gone completely mad? Will he mourn?
