    Except, Wolverine clearly caught on that something was up with Rachel. I think she tipped him off on purpose. Doesn't help now that Cap tossed him out of the plane, though.
    Wolverine clearly has a way out of wherever he was dropped off, if his muttering to himself was any indication.

    This is what I'm hoping for.

    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.

    Not only that but the main and tie-ins show that they end up in the same places.
    Rachael would not know that Caps intentions are different from Wolverines, he is toofar away

    We will have to see.

    do you think that Cap understands why Rachael is really uncomfortable? I don't think he would have had her do it if he knew about the "hound". He seems to believe that she is just in an uncomfortable position not reliving a nightmare. Cap has been corrupted but not nearly that far yet

    It seems that some Avengers are going to the school to watch over it. Can they really be that dumb?

    Or it could be that Kid Gladiator goes after them himself considering that the Avengers are still separated based on the solicits of the events going on in the main book. Just because it's in WatXM doesn't mean it has to happen at the school.

    They said that She-hulf Falcon and Moon Knight were going to the school. Moon knight at a school?

    I think that is an invitation to disaster.

    I like the sound of that. :)

    So how many teams do we have by now? Team Cyke, Team Cap, Wolverine's Solo, Team Cable, ... Team Rogue?

    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.

    I guess the problem is I have not been interested in either team in years and nothing about this story arc is doing anything to draw me back.

    no your not

    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.

    I know it's far fetched, but I'm still holding out that Wolverine has a alternative agenda and that Rachel has sent the two teams to busy themselves fighting each other while Wolverine and perhaps Cable hook up with Hope, constituting a third faction in this whole conflict.
    This is exactly what's happening. Not only did Rachel feed both teams of morons total bs, but she can pinpoint track Hope since it's been canonically proven that Cable's blocking/cloaking methods and technology don't work with her. She tracked Cable successfully when even Jean and Xavier couldn't.

    Don't think that will be remembered. From what has been shown anyway notice how Emma and Cyclops aren't on any team, so they're probably going to the right location while the X-Men distract the Avengers in those 5 locations which are all wrong anyway.
