You can't read too much into the solicitations for future issues, but the upcoming AvX installment seems to have Wolverine and Hope working together; and the cover for an upcoming issue of WaTXM has Kid Gladiator throwing down against The Avengers.

VIVA KUSASAN!!! Morrison On Magneto: I made him into a stupid old drug-addicted idiot. CC had done a lot of good work over the years to redeem the character. And I went in and sh*t on all of it.
Holding out for a Peter/Miles team up.
Asking Rachel if she can use cerebra does not make any of these folks bad people, so what if it gives her a bit of discomfort she is an adult and the world/mutant race is on the line.
This issue wasn't nearly as epic as the last issue in terms of action, but it was still very enjoyable. I think this issue actually tipped the balance again after it looked like the Avengers were winning one too many battles. In this issue Cyclops outsmarted Captain America not once, but twice. First with Magik and then again with Rachel. If Cap is supposed to be a master strategist, it really didn't show in this issue.
But the highlight for me was Wolverine getting kicked out of the Avengers (literally) and defying Captain America. And you know what? He was right on some levels. The battle with him in Cap reminded me of the battle between him and Cyclops in Schism. It was a fierce debate where both sides had a point and there was no way to resolve it. In this instance I would say Wolverine has more credibility because he's dealt with the Phoenix. He's lost loved ones because of the Phoenix. Captain America thinks he knows how he's going to handle this, but he's shown he really doesn't. Kicking Wolverine off the jet may have helped him win the battle, but he just lost an important ally in the war.
I really enjoyed this issue, especially seeing Rachel Grey finally get a larger role. It didn't have the same epic battle as the last issue, but it moved the story along and really set the stage for some interesting developments. If I had to score this, I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 just because the scene with Hope was somewhat glossed over. Aside from that, this was another quality issue.
