This is the part that is confusing to me. Everyone knew where Magneto was prior to AvX, it was never a secret that he was a member of Scott's team and living on Utopia. If anyone was really interested in holding him accountable for his crimes, why not go for him then? Why wait until after AvX?
It still doesn't explain why his powers were messed up by the phoenix even though he wasn't part of the Five...
I wonder if they will ever get around to explaining this. It seems like a pretty big plot hole that is too blatantly obvious to ignore but here we are, 8 months later, without a real explanation.
