Big events are always a good time to catch up with the family

So much for that promise, Pietro.

Damnit, I hate those narration boxes. Sooo corny.

I'm not particularly impressed by how this plays up Wanda as spoooooooooooky and creeeeeeeeepy.

If it is the Phoenix amplifying Hope's powers beyond the impossible, then one could have Hope be unaware that she's been doing it, and instead is swallowing her own Mutant Messiah hype because the X-men are reinforcing it due to her influence that she isn't aware she's exerting, and on top of that, the Phoenix starts to take Hope's mindset, which means that it feels justified in amplifying those powers. It becomes an Ouroboros situation in which there really is no one truly at fault, yet there's a boatload of guilt and blame to go around.

It would also mirror Wanda's situation (was she influenced by Pietro? Controlled by Doom? Feeling forced into a corner by anti-mutant sentiment? Or did her powers unconsciously alter reality to make those things influence her into altering reality, which shows the utter incomprehensible nature of reality warping powers), in which there is a clear person to hate for all of it, but are they really to blame? They certainly aren't blameless, but were they truly responsible? What's the better course after all this? Punishment or preventing a repeat occurrence?
