That's pretty much been my problem with the way that Schism has been handled. The people who should be refuting the Utopia kids ... aren't. Rogue and Logan shouldn't be trying to refute their point, it should be characters like Anole, Hellion, Mercury, Rockslide - you know, the people who actually made the choice to be minors rather than child soldiers. Having Rogue and Logan speak for them is pretty patronising, imo, and i'm surprised no-one has called them out on this.

I actually found the conversation pretty weird because those kids did already make their point, during the Schism follow up. This just seemed like another rehash.

Slightly annoyed that no one pointed out that Surge is still following the people who were on watch when the bus went boom and who pretty much abandoned the survivors afterward, tho.

I'm still surprised that they are ignoring what happened to the like Asteroid M, Avalon and Genosha. I don't see how a mutant nation makes it much more safer for them. Schism pretty much proved that and they were lucky to make it through that. School or Utopia, none of them are truly safe areas in the end.

Utopia just destroys the idea of human/mutant cohabitation or understanding that was one of the goals of the X-Men. Which makes Scott founding Utopia look like a hypocrite, as I know for one of the Asteroid Ms he was against it for that very reason.

Good points. I guess find it easier to think that the kids could overlook the larger historical precedents in favor of their immediate experiences if Cyclops had done more to rack up points in the "safe" category as opposed to "not dead yet". It's not like the deaths stopped after Utopia was founded either.

Cyclops has already explicitly said that he thinks Xavier's dream is dead. He's past hoping for coexistence and willing to do whatever he needs to in the name of survival. But I wrote him off as a hero a while back anyway.

He has? Okay that is explains some of his actions now that are borderline similar to what Magneto or even Namor would do.

Can we now have Storm take charge of the team? Out of those still on Utopia she is the only really levelheaded person with real leadership experience that everyone would get behind.

She was the one who questioned Scott not raising his hand when "Who here has been a supervillain?" was asked at the Extinction Team meeting.
