There's your "solid, unqualified win", Cap.

Here Tony makes one of those "you're starting to sound like me" speech that Magneto has been giving Scott a lot lately.

Scott plays dirty.

I like it.

The Phoenix was UNIVERSE-SAVING in the past, and the only time it went to the bad was after a concentrated effort on behalf of some throughly insidious mutants, most of whom are dead, or are reformed and working with Scott.

And what exactly is the Avengers guaranteed foolproof plan to stop this cosmic entity from doing what it wants anyway? Science based on a device that didn't work last time.

Past actions don't matter when current ones are evil. The fact is that the Phoenix is currently killing billions and is heading right towards Earth. There is no part of "Let it get here and hope that the teenager who is likely not mentally healthy to begin with can control it and restore the mutants" that even remotley resembles a reasonable plan. Even if they aren't going about it the best way, at least the Avengers have "save the Earth from destruction" as their top priority. The X-men cannot make that claim, and their leader is willing to needlessly risk everyone Earth's life on the chance his aforementioned plan will work.

Not to mention Scott was soccer kicking said mutant girl earlier in the series, not training in my opinion...but abusing. the cosmic entity, it might not destroy everything?

It's eating planets on its way to Earth. Regardless what it did in the past, that would make most reasonable people anxious, surely? it'd make me shit my pants and try to make it go elsewhere, if I were in that situation. Also, the mutant in question they're planning to bond it with has been raised with a messiah complex (no pun intended) from pretty much birth and is now severely screwed up as a result. What's the X-Men's guaranteed foolproof plan to take a planet-eating cosmic turkey, a messed up child with a god complex, and have that come out the other side without wanting to eat the planet/kill a whole lot of people?

you know technically each of those planets it's eating right now are in the past. Maybe it's eating them because there's not a suitable host there.

Yeah, well I'd rather not take that chance, if I were in that situation.

And that really bodes well, doesn't it? If the planet doesn't have what the Galactic Dodo wants, it burns it. Real heroic. Welcome to Earth, Phoenix! ! We'd like to be Rare rather than Well Done if you don't mind!

What is this "device" you mentioned the Avengers hope to use?

Is it the Ultimate Nullifier? I was wondering if it could stop the Phoenix if it was used successfully on Galactus. Unless the Phoenix is in a higher tier.

Man, Marvel's cosmology somehow confuses me more than DC's.

Not the UN, which probably would work on it. They're building a cage based on data gathered from the scrambler which Beast unsuccessfully used on Jean the first time she went Dark Phoenix.

Might want to call in Mr. Fantastic and ask to borrow an Ultimate Nullifer.

Oh wait. Is the War of the Four Cities deal still going on? Concurrent or near-concurrent crises are so confusing.

Last time the PF was near death, the stars started dieing. I think it's one of those integral parts of the universe entities, like Galactus.
