The Avengers destroy buildings 24/7 and nobody ever complains.
Buildings destroy !=! Casualties in comic books
As long as there is no mention or concrete pictures (like f.E. when Namor attacked Wakanda) there is no proof he killed anyone.
And off course he contributed something. He was the one who was right the entire time about the PF recreating mutants.
If it would have gone like the Avengers (to whom Wanda belongs) wanted it, the PF would have been destroyed in space.

And- at the end of the day- Cyclops did nothing with the Phoenix power to restore mutants. That'd be the Scarlet Witch and Hope. So, pretty much FAIL all around once again.
1. I never said the X-Men never did it.
2. I didn't want to show examples with those links, I wanted to explain further by linking the tropes.
In short = Destroyed Buildings do NOT equal death in Comic Books.
3. Read better. What I wrote was
Bottom Line is just, Wanda did FAR more damage in her career than Cyclops ever could.plus he helped to re-create the mutants.
But she is always excused with the same nonsense all over again, while Cyclops is the bogeyman for things he didn't even willingly do.
That's what I mean when I say the Avengers are a bunch of Hypocrites.
This thread is still going on?! AvX is over people!
For the Wanda-Cyclops situation, put yourself in Cap's shoes. He knows Wanda a lot better than Cyclops. He trusts Wanda and knows that she isn't evil. He cannot say the same for Cyclops. Also, it wasn't just Cap's decision to lock up Cyclops (Consequences #3).
Oh, and don't you dare call DOOM a mere man!
There's no real preferencial treatment going on... all heroes basically go through the same thing when this sort of thing happens. Happened with Wanda. Happened with Hal Jordan. Currently happening with Scott. Give it a few years and Scott will basically get his free pass just like Wanda and Hal Jordan and every other hero who has been in a comparable situation.
Hell, in some ways Scott lucked out. Wanda and Hal were taken off the board for years.
Regardless, it'll probably play out the same way. They'll run with the story for a few years, then Scott will have his "what have I done moment," apologize, admit he was wrong, and rejoin the rest of his teammates like nothing happened. Not unlike Stark, or Hal Jordan. Wanda is in the middle of that right now.
For those that feel Scott deserves a pass, he'll get it... eventually. And for those that feel he was in the wrong, they'll get what they want too. It pretty much always works out that way in the end.
Pain shared is divided, joy shared is multiplied
So on some level he already knows. He just hasn't owned it yet, or really admitted it to the rest of his peers. Give Bendis a few years to run with the current status quo, and Scott will get there. Then he can rejoin his X buddies at the Jean Grey school and things will be relatively back to normal.
