I suspect that a big part of the problem is that the writers have spent so much of Hope's page-time writing her as a plot-point wrapped in an enigma instead of making her into an interesting character that when they try to do something like this, a lot of readers feel like they're sliding on sand trying to figure out what the hell is up with her, and not in a fun way. The sales numbers say that a large chunk of the readership emphatically Do Not Care about Hope or her Lights, and when she's supposed to be the mutant messiah, when she's already had two series and an event sprung up all about how important she is to the future of mutants and people still can't muster up the will to care much about her story, that is not a good sign.

I like some of the Lights myself, but I'd trade them all and Hope to comic limbo if it meant we got Nightcrawler back. I just don't feel Hope's worth all the fuss.
