Pain shared is divided, joy shared is multiplied
Hope was special. Phoenix was going to Earth to correct the Mutant Problem. That part was correct yet people still argue about it.
Hell, I read more Avenger Books than X-Men but I can't see how in the world anybody can think the Avengers were right. The Avengers fked up. Royally.

Gillen said Hope wasn't ready and couldn't control the Phoenix on the moon... and on the moon Hope says the same thing. She says the same thing later in Wolverine and the X-Men.
The comments of Gillen, Breevort, and Hope herself all support each other. As do the statements in NA where we're told she needs training in Kun Lun to control the Phoenix... which she ends up getting and using sucessfully to control the Phoenix.
What in the books exactly disproves what Gillen, Breevort, and Hope all say?
And I'm not arguing that Phoenix wasn't necessarily coming to earth to fix mutants... what I'm arguing is that there were 2 paths. Again, NA tried to emphasis this point. ONE possible path was to restore the mutants... the other was to bring about the celestrial rebirth (which is just a fancy way of saying it was going to destroy humanity).
That's the half of the equation that you're ignoring. It could have been either... but the heroes prevented one and brought about the other. Like heroes do. This wasn't just about the Avengers "poking" anything (though I would still argue that's something they needed to do). Similar to what occured with Fongji, the outcome we got depended on Hope being ready. On the moon she wasn't... and that was the problem. But fortunately the Avengers were able to get her ready, and we ended up with the result we got instead.
