Yea, I'm a bit hype.

#2 Posted by McKlayn (1078 posts) - - Show Bio

finally we get to see some one call cap out on his half of the entire mess,

btw i love the way the kids are being written, totally freaking out by the presence of the avengers, also like to add how ballsy it is of Cyclops, Emma & Magik to be standing there all calm with some of the more uh 'elite' avengers ready to take them in.

#3 Posted by IllyanaRasputin (1116 posts) - - Show Bio

I love how gutless Emma, Cyclops and Magik are, why the hell are they so calm after being confronted (once again) by Captain America? Doesn't he understand he doesn't control the X-Men by now? I mean he tried taking Hope into custody look what happened, is he going to really try and do the same right now?

That being said, does he even have any jurastriction in Australia to arrest them or take them into custody? I don't think so.... step off Cap.

Feel like Scott will imminently start getting on my nerves. 'So do you' is just irrational.

...which is why he wouldn't have said it if he hadn't had something to back it up.

I'm as curious as Hawkeye on this one.

Ok first page is working now. LOL @ Hawkeye.

Bendis took who could've been an overly tense situation (which I was hoping for) and injected it w/ a ton of humor

Bravo.

Totally agree with a comment above would love Emma to have at least used the word darling once - I get that Bendjs is trying to make her more civil and "innocent" or whatever but don't forget she's not a totally different person!

Gotta admit, based on what I heard from Avengers fans, I was expecting Bendis to ruin the X-Men. I have never been so happy to be proven wrong!

#22 Edited by GonnaRain (752 posts) - - Show Bio

This books just keeps getting better and better. I actually love that it's not a fight, at least physical, from the start, and that Scott's plan from a beginning is calmly running away, not getting involved in a fight against the Avengers. And the fact that everything is getting recorded, like most of us knew would happen, I'm guessing it will make the Pro-Mutant crowd even bigger.

Emma, Scott and Magik are really shining, and the new kids are getting more and more likable, at least in my opinion.

Finally, LOL at Hawkeye not helping Tony at all, and Emma and Scott calling the Avengers out on their bs.

It depends, because the X-Men know that what they did was wrong, Scott accepted on killing Xavier since the beginning, but the Avengers were the ones playing Nuns the whole AvX event, and they still do. Tony did cause the disruption that merged the Phoenix with Cyke and co., and they keep pushing and pushing the P5 to the point that they needed to fight back. So, I agree with pretty much everything Emma and Scott are saying (minus the Cap being responsible for Xavier's death as well, I really want to know what arguments Scott holds to support that claim, because if someone is to be accused of being somewhat indirectly responsible would be Tony, not Cap).

The Avengers STILL chasing Cyke and co. around is a waste of time, at it seems hypocritical to call them out for "violence" against the police, when the actions of the police against mutants have always being everything but pacifical.

#25 Posted by TheCowman (461 posts) - - Show Bio

@GonnaRain:

Eh, I'm not arguing whose more at fault, I just don't think Cyke is actually making an argument to the Avengers. I think he's mainly just BSing for the cameras in an attempt to drum up support for his team. Trying to assign blame when it comes to things like the Phoenix Force is pretty useless in the long run.

And don't get me wrong, I'm not being condescending about BS. For heroes like Spidey, Hawkeye, and others, BS is one of their main weapons.

Well, I actually share most of your points. The way Scott is looking at the camera, it's kind of obvious that he knows that video will help their cause, so yeah, I'm with you that he's also making a show for the camera, trying to play his cards right. Still, I just think it's not all BS, trying to share the blame for Prof. X's death certainly is, but the X-Men do have some points.

Not really, look at it this way, if Tony would of never divided the Phoenix Force Scott would of never become Dark Phoenix, so how is cap Responsible, lots of ways if you read the entire series and it's tie ins. Most importantly he continued an underground group to fight the phoenix, constantly attacking them when they were still doing good, he also called a meeting on the illumanti to bring Professor X into the Fold, he tried several times to convince Professor X to help before the professor finally joined up (which if that would of never happened then he would of never died, Cap wanted professor X cause he knew he could press Scott's button's) So cap's direct actions honestly seemed like an attempt to get Cyclops to go all dark phoenix just so he would be right, so yea he killed Professor X just as much if not more then Cyclops (when you consider Cyclops was possed by a cosmic entity and he wasn't) so i don't think it was a big leap,.

It has been my opinion from the start that both Scott and Cap were equal parts responsible for EVERYTHING AVX including the fall out, the return of the mutants and the death of professor X, it just seems that Cap doesn't want to take any of the blame, so this issue really does my heart good :D

Well, let's keep in mind that Cyclops was still the deciding factor in the end. I'm not saying Cap maybe shouldn't have been so aggressive, but in the end it was still Scott who pulled the trigger, so to speak. When it comes to murder, the "this guy kept bugging me about it" defense doesn't hold much water. Of course, there's also the Phoenix corruption to address as well, but I think you have to be careful not to assign TOO much blame to Cap. I mean, if you're trying to take or talk down Scott Summers you'd go to those who know him best. That's either Jean or Charles, and Jean wasn't an option.

Prof. X decided in his own free will to try and handle Cyke. I won't deny that the Avengers, and specially Cap, were the ones trying to make him take part in the whole mess, but Charles rejected them at first, and if IIRC, the one that managed to convince him at last was Erik. Still, at the end Charles got into all the Phoenix business because he chose to.

So, anyways, a lot of people are to blame indirectly for his dead, like I said before Tony should be one of them, but like said, it was Scott who pulled the trigger at the end.

Anyways, I was, and still am on the X-Men's side, and I believe that the Avengers did screw up big time in some occasions during AvX, but Cyke did as well, and Charles dead is the biggest example, even with the Phoenix corruption.

a shadow figure of what was supposed to be jean grey did tell scott to let go of the phoenix force but why couldnt she do that before charles xavier died and i guess jean's spirit is taking care of prof.x in the white hot room or something
