Yes because she had no trouble at all dealing with Kenji Uedo/Zero in their first encounter right I'd say just in the short time she's known she's known she's a mutant & manage her powers it's pretty asinine to just assume she'll have no trouble managing the power of the phoenix.
She's done exceptionally well dealing with what she's had to so far but that doesn't mean she'll be able to have masterful control once the phoenix bonds with her.
I would hope you actually have proof from the comic that Cap is going against the constitution, and it's not just another made up argument to have something to complain about. I mean, you have the issue and page# that shows this, right?
Yeah, that's not completely contradictory at all- "WE SHOULD TRUST WHAT THE STORY TELLS US, unless we don't like what the story tells us then they're lying or ignorant!"
Have you missed the part where the Phoenix has already destroyed two worlds on it's way to earth? The Avengers know life has already been lost & when that happens you don't gamble on luck....How are people not understanding this
His plan is to get her & the phoenix away from earth so it doesn't end up just like the last two planets that got in the Phoenix's way.....I'm sure Cap will do everything in his power to protect Hope once he gets her off earth (wich admitteldy is not much) but his first priority is to the safety of everyone on the planet & he shouldn't & is not gonna gamble on that.
Are they making assumptions about the fact that it's destroyed two worlds already? No of course not & thats all the information Cap needs to be concerned about the thing coming to earth and endangering everybody on it.
He's an Avenger and as a member of the Avengers he has the responsibility of safeguarding the entire planet and everyone one it which includes but is not exclusive too Mutants.

One more day until we can argue over AvX: VS #1. Two more days until we can argue over the AvX #3 preview!

Because that is playing it safe. If the bonding turns out positive, she's off planet so she didn't risk blowing up the Earth. If it doesn't, she's off planet so she doesn't risk blowing up the Earth.It worked fine when people wanted to defend Captain America taking Hope into protective custody because "we didn't know" what he was going to do.
This isn't having it both ways.You can't have it both ways.
It's not giving Cap "the benefit of the doubt." It's playing it safe and not gambling with people's lives.If we had to give Captain America the benefit of the doubt, then the same applies with Cyclops.
We know both plans now. They're both out in the open. It's not having it both ways.
But the reader does.The "giant flaming bird of death" was still headed towards the Earth in AvX #1. In AvX 1 Cap made no mention of what he was going to do besides take Hope into protective custody. The bits about off world didn't come until the New Avengers issue. Cap still hasn't told Cyclops or any of the X-Men that in AvX 2, so they have no reason to trust him.
Because it's an entirely different situation now. We have more information to go on.Now when people try and defend Cyclops in the same manner you have an issue with it.
Except it has. Bond Hope with the Phoenix. She'll be their "Messiah." Compared to the "Get her off planet to save the Earth plan," that's more to go on.We don't know what Cyclops plans to do because the story hasn't allowed him an opportunity to say so.
