Here's whats kind of fucked up about the whole Phoenix Five fixing the world thing.. if mutants ever actually cared about any of that, they could've easily done that before. How many weather controlling mutants are there? How many mutants capable of dismantling nuclear powers?
There've been mutants capable of controlling the entire world telepathically.. mutants capable of beind reality to their whims.. the Phoenix Five are doing something which, quite frankly, the X-Men could've probably done anyway throughout the years without the Phoenix force backing them. But they didn't.
They SHOULD be focusing on bringing mutants back, like Scott originally wanted, which started this whole fucking mess.. instead, they've become power hungry and want nothing more than to show their dominance over the planet.
Well only one mutant ever did that, Magneto. Twice he used his powers to blackmail the world: once into dismantling their nuclear arms. The other was to get his own nation (which he got in Genosha). But his actions were deemed EVIL.
Though I can take this one step further. The Phoenix 5 have the power of god. Yet, they decide instead of restarting the mutant gene they're redoing the world in "their" image. Now that's Dr. Doom turf.
It's funny how but a "month" ago the X-Men stood with the Avengers against DOOM who was doing this exact same shit. But that was BAD. Yet when the Phoenix 5 are doing this it's good. HYPOCRISY at it's finest.
