The issue starts off with Dr Nemesis analysing one of Hope's PF manifestations. Dr Nemesis describes it more as signal going outwards than a general energy burst. (i guess Hope's some sort of beacon for the Phoenix). Cyclops is happy as a fanatic can be. He tells Emma that they need to get ready for anything that comes because people will notice.
Unit talks to Hope and advises her not to be anyone's pawn. He also continues to manipulate Danger and reminds her of how a bad a student she is.
The issue then moves to the beach where the Avengers stormed Utopia and the narration is from Namor's perspective. He talks of how much he is impressed by Scott and would have his woman. Which (in his opinion) would be a complement to Scott.
The issue than moves to the fight between Colossus and Rulk underwater. Rulk tries to gouge out Colossus eyes but that just makes Colossus go full on Juggernaut/Cyttorak hybrid.
The issue moves back to the scene with Hope taking out Wolverine (like in AVX). According to the inner monologue, Hope is very much in control of herself and remembers that she had an agreement with Wolverine to take her out if "things got really bad".However, things aren't really bad and she owns Wolverine and runs away thinking that she's running towards a fight and not away from it (her inner thoughts).
Cyttorak Colossus is owning Rulk hard. Breaking his nose and his bones and knocking out his teeth. Cyttorak Colossus is about to finish him off when Rulk points to the Utopia pillar and how it might have been knocked down. Cyttorak Colossus powers down to normal Colossus and gets knocked the fuck out by Rulk!
Cyclops is looking for Hope and talks about the activating the Avengers protocol.
The office of Kade Kildare (PR Specialist for Superhumans) gets a text message "Avengers Protocol go". The world is not ending with a bang but with a press release!
The issue ends with a letter to humanity from Scott on how the US government attacked them and how they've been pushed e.t.c
Another excellent issue from Gillen. 9/10.

I love Scott went after what the Avengers love most. Their public image.
Colossus was the highlight of the issue. Only wish he would've removed at least one limb off that Rulk guy.
And Unit.<3 I hope he stays around for a long time.
Danger is not amused by that thread of yours. She is a mere shadow of her former self. Besides in the pic above no true villain will kill unconscious heroes on the ground as it goes completly against their nature to do so.
Danger wanting to be human killed Danger. Thanks Emma!
