Cap arranges for a meeting with the Illuminati.







There's also a nice scene with Cap and Namor at the end (this takes place before he lost the Phoenix), but that would go over the page limit.

Yea. "Remember what happened with you two, and maybe we shouldn't jump to conclusions on this, and I'm not just going to assume I have the answers."

Wait. Wait. Wait. What happened with the whole "I'm a futurist! I have equations and I know stuff!" Reed??

What I'm trying to say is that Reed always seems to find himself on the side that is not Captain America. I think he secretly enjoys preeching down at him. Well, I say "secretly" but...

Reed Richards does indeed make a valid point that Cap and Iron Man have been escalating things by provoking the X-Men and the Phoenix Five. But in light of what happens in Avengers vs. X-Men #8 and especially Avengers vs. X-Men #9, Reed comes across in this scene like Pierce Brosnan's character in Mars Attacks! who--like virtually every scientist in every sci-fi monster or alien invasion movie ever made--believes that the all-too obviously dangerous menace can be reasoned with, that they're not as dangerous as they appear, and that humanity can learn so much from what they have to offer. And of course, they turn out to be horribly, horribly wrong. Because let's face it, if this scene had been taking place after Ben Grimm got captured and sent to Magik's Limbo prison, or especially after Namor's destruction of Wakanda, and what Emma Frost is currently doing, there's no way Reed would be saying this in light of those events. Because instead of coming across like a voice of reason, he would look like a complete fool.

Shit, I'm sure Reed would be ready to go rescue him the moment he finds out what happened to Ben as well as come up with a device that will seriously fuck the Phoenix 5 up. For all his faults, Reed is the one person I can see who'd be able to do that.

Yea, but Doom's a case where it's the wrong hands getting ahold of it to begin with; cosmic power doesn't make him evil, he's already evil and cosmic power just makes him more dangerous.

Like Reed notes, they are allies and they are trying to help and the worry is they won't be able to control it.

Seriously Reed? You didn't learn after the last time? Remember how that ended? With Norman Osborne laying a siege on your place and threatening your kids while you were off in that "Look into parallel realities machine" or whatever the hell it was so you can see JUST WHERE YOU MESSED UP?

To paraphrase Will Smith, Reed is the dumbest smart guy in the marvel universe.

.... you know, with all things considered... did the Shi'ar EMpire, or those involved in the situation, actually offered ANY form of apology when they killed Jean's relatives out of pure fundamental fear that they may become hosts of the Phoenix due to bloodlines? I mean, the AVengers, members of a race of humans that constantly are being look down on (even by themselves) broke and "tame" the Phoenix without really killing anyone and did the earth, if not the universe, a solid... but a bunch of self glorified killed a bunch of people for a pointless safety percussion, leading to ALOT of things to get worst from that, and yet still feel high and mighty...

Why are you all saying Reed is making sense? This is complete bullocks. He's repeating the same facist justification crap he spouted to justify civil war. Reed Richards chastizing someone for 'bringing the world to war'?

HELLO? CIVIL WAR?

This is utterly, rediculous. The Fab Pheonix 5 are so clearly evil it's not even funny. Or has everyone forgotten not a few issues ago where Colossus is threatening and borderline beating Kitty? And threatening children?

Or Namor, whilst there's still 5 of them, Namor attacking and commiting genocide on Wakanda?

This is just Reed being a full out self absorbed idiot, i'm not sure why -anyone- is supporting him.

I can't buy Reed's argument and I can't figure out why Cap and Tony are going for it either. "Are you scared that the phenomenal cosmic power will destroy too much ... or are you scared you'll get your feelings hurt?" Seriously? I don't think they're quite that petty.

Tony's commentary is much appreciated though.
