Two panels from AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #1. And some rambling afterwards.





Where do I begin?

Cyclops is looking through rose-colored glasses (zing!) to think the Phoenix Force coming to Earth might be a good thing. Phoenix will fix things for mutants exactly how? There will be mutant births? And (as I've said before) those mutants won't get their powers until they are teenagers (minus any time travel tomfoolery). Unless they just "activate" like the Five Lights, which STILL doesn't make sense, even by X-Men standards.

It would be nice if Cyclops said "It has to be Hope's decision." Except Cyclops doesn't want it to be Hope's decision.

Captain America can't be wrong. That was the point behind Civil War. And why things fell apart during Secret Invasion, which led to Dark Reign. Yes, it can be annoying, and is why Iron Man was turned into a fascist. But that's how it is. Captain America can't be wrong.

One point that Cyclops *might* have is Cap being too far away from everything. Grant Morrison's reveal that Project: Rebirth and the Super Soldier Serum was originally supposed to kill mutants, not Nazis, may be a factor. (Thanks, Grant! I say sarcastically.)

So, basically, Captain America can't be wrong and Cyclops is an idiot with some minor points. Well, that resolves A VS. X for me!

Really? ... seems better than the whole "Deadpool project" in the Wolverine movie... though making an unkillable super mutant to kill other mutants is pretty stupid on itself...

Around this time, I was kinda wondering if they're going to make like a "Rock Lee" character into the X-Men mythos, where a character is naturally super strong and fast but WITHOUT an X-Gene, basically a human boderlining between homo-sapiens and homo-superior (I hate that name, nothing eases tension between species when one is called "superior") WITHOUT the use of radiation, magic, or alien dna/experiments. Someone is caught between the middle of human and mutant conflicts.... some other than the Creed "love son" and Ink...

I think the 'Rock Lee' type of character you describe has basically already been done, given there was that Vargas guy who initially killed Psylocke way back when in X-Treme X-Men? The guy was meant to have all sorts of natural skills but wasn't a mutant, or something.
