Since this is a mutant issue and the X-Men have more experience with the Phoenix, Cyclops wants the X-Men to be allowed to handle the situation. Captain America doesn't agree and tells Cyclops that he wasn't asking. Cyclops blasts Captain America. Avengers Assemble.
All the while, Emma is in the background saying that they should really let Hope decide her own fate. So, currently both sides are being stubborn and Emma is kind of right. What does Hope have to say about all of this? Furthermore, why didn't Captain America offer to let Hope stay on Utopia if Cyclops allowed some of the Avengers stay to figure out an actual plan? Did he really think that going to the X-Men's home and demanding that they turn over one of their own when that person never actually did anything to warrant being turned over in the first place, was going to work?
The way these characters have been written this last decade, yes, they probably did think it would work.
If this story took place 10 years ago or longer, I'm sure Cap would have conferred with Reed Richards and the FF and brought a well reasoned, respectful and non-threatening invitation to Cyclops and the X-Men and together they would have worked something out.
But then there wouldn't be any brainless fighting.
