You disagree? Feel it goes against the history? Fine. Dislike that aspect of the story.
Doesn't mean that the characters are lying or the comic told another story when it didn't. But this story and the creator stated the Phoenix would have destroyed the world if the heroes did everything Scott wanted.
But with the help of the Avengers, she DID learn ton control it and was able to do good with it.
So I think in the end there was a definate balance there.
Interviews and such are mostly for that 1% of comic readers that essentially need everything spelled out for them.
He should have worked with Captain America and Meet the Phoenix in space, it would have at least been better then meeting it on the Earth at least. I mean the 616 Universe has Space Ships that can easy travel the Planets like we travel in Cars, it was really not that hard to consider that you would think.
Comics will often convey exposition using characters. But sometimes a poster will argue that a character is mistaken, or flat out lying. And that's when you need an editor or writer to claffy. As a crude hypothetical example:
Iron Man in his book: Coke Zero has zero calories.
Poster X on the CBR: Iron Man is LYING!
Tom Breevort on Formspring: No, Iron Man isn't lying. In the Marvel Universe, Coke Zero has zero calories.
Poster X on the CBR: Tom Breevort is LYING!
That's just how it is on the internet. Nothing you can do.
One Thing I don't Like in the end with AvX is that both Summers at the beginning and the Writers at the end of the Series said that The Phoenix came back to restart the mutant gene. The thing I don't get is that when it was on its way why in the process of restarting 1 species of Humans on a planet does it have to go and destroy other planets on the way?
Also, if that was it's intent, why did it make itself so hard for Hope to control, you think it being an all divine Cosmic Being that some believed it was that it would try to make itself easier to control for the sake of the mutants. Finally, when the P5 where born and it is believed that the Phoenix was influencing thier actions, why did it not just lead to to restart the gene or at least been saying to them in whispering influence "Restart Mutants, Restart Mutants, Restart Mutants, Restart Mutants, Restart Mutants, Restart Mutants, Restart Mutants." Instead they where creating "Pax Utopia" at the UN and saving the spotted bug or some species on the planet, but not their own?
Sorry, but those where some BIG Plot Holes in the story to me. I have my theories to them as well, but still seems like Big Plot Holes.

Cap: We need to take Hope into protective custody
Cyke : Because...
Cap: The Phoenix Force is headed to Earth and all our experts feel its headed towards her.
later Cap says "There's a destructive force headed to Earth and we need to find a way to stop it"
I don't have a scanner so I cant scan the exchange, but I suggest you re-read the issue. Cap absolutely mentions the Phoenix heading to Earth and Destruction.
