    1. How is Cyclops risking the lives of innocents? If you are at war, and I do believe Cyclops believes he is at war, how do you defend yourself...especially on multiple fronts? At some point, you risk becoming General Custer...surrounded by the enemy and your forces (loved ones) are killed off. Slowly but surely, this was what was happening. Wanda's actions put Scott in that scenario. Again, I ask, when in this scenario, what do you do? Lie down and die or fight for your lives?

Well, for starters, he's risking the lives of 7 billion people on Earth for what amounts to an absolutely crazy and unfounded idea that Phoenix will restart mutants, which really have no right to continue. No group has that right.

Throughout the past several years, he has continually risked the lives of other people, like pulling X-Force out of a mission so they could stupidly travel to the future.

    2. I do not agree with your assessment that Cyclops was trying to kill friend and enemy and innocent alike. He was doing what I stated above.

Then you simply are not paying attention. The above statement IS doing precisely that.

    3. I see your point about shouldn't "have to" fight. But...I don't think Scott forced anyone to fight. I do think his judgment about how best to protect the younger X-Men was suspect. But as we will see in one month, the Original X-Men were children. Not much older than the 5 lights and other young mutants.

Cyclops was forcing them to fight. How on Earth could you have missed that very boldly stated point of Schism? That was the entire situation!

    4. How was his plan homicidal if Hope ultimately ends up becoming Phoenix? If Hope is so "not ready" or "unwilling", why are the Avengers training her?? Surely they are not planning on letting Hope battle the Phoenix...or are they? Tell me how this current plan of action is any different than what Scott would have done? I don't think you can. You don't know what Scott's plan was...but I would argue his plan was no different than what is happening right now.

We do know what Scott's plan is and was. He stated it very clearly. Emma even tried to talk him out of it in the beginning.
