Cyclops tricks the Avengers and the X-Men escape Utopia thanks to Illyana.

Cap sends the Avengers to various locations to look for Hope. Wolvie and Cap take a walk to compare half baked strategies and well this happens...

Additional Spoiler:

At first I was going to bitch about Rachel being Cyclops' mole in Logan's School, but then I remembered when Wolvie tried to kill her when she was the Phoenix's host. Which if that's what they end up using to justify her siding with Cyke is actually a) good writing and B) an astonishing nod to continuity.


If they believe the Phoenix's arrival means a rebirth for them, then it makes sense for most (if not all) of the mutants to side with the other mutants. But I don't get how the Phoenix arriving equates jump starting mutant baby births.

Cap and Logan both have flawed strategies about what to do about the Phoenix but at least their reactions to it make (some) sense.

Cyclops' doesn't. It's not like the Phoenix has been so helpful to him and his in the past. If anything he should be the first one trying to hide Hope and plotting a way to reroute/destroy it.

Lol. True. It still doesn't make sense. Just saying that I can understand why Giant-Man (I think that's his name ATM) was called in to intervene.

idk, maybe Cap wanted to wear Wolverine down a bit so that he would not stab Giant-Man in his giant feet? Sort of get Logan's attention focused on him then have Giant-Man blindside him?

And as for tricking Wolverine into position, I think that even prior to the actual fistfighting Logan and Cap were already suspicious of each other so Wolverine would have been savvy enough to tell something was fishy about being asked to "check out" a random door. Then again, characterizations/intellects for comic book characters are so inconsistent and altered to sustain the plot so who knows.

We're probably putting more thought into this scene than the writers and editors who produced it :P

Side note: is that door there entirely for the purpose of kicking people out of the ship? The way the door is leads to a small room with an exterior hatch in the floor makes it seem impractical for any other purpose.

I know the Avengers are sometimes seen jumping from an aircraft into battle but that room looks too small to hold the entire team. Then again I can't tell with the art style. Never mind XD

I think that's the problem, sigh. It's so by-the-numbers. (I'm not even sure why it was necessary to throw Logan off the plane. You could probably have just landed and he would have left?)

I suppose if that door exists solely for kicking people out of the ship, it would be more difficult to make Logan go stand in front of it...

Thinking of hilarious mix-ups for that door now.

W-"Hey Cap, mind if I use the bathroom?"

CA-"Sure Logan go ahe- NO NOT THAT DOOR!"

W-"@#%$!!!!" (falls from plane)

CA-"-sigh- Why did I install that?"

And then Cap is just... "yeah, I decided that Logan was a liability and kicked him off the plane" because he doesn't want to admit that door was a bad idea.
