His intentions are irrelevant if the result is extinction.
It's not like the X-men have less riding on this than anyone else. The Earth is where they keep all their stuff too.
and that is EXACTLY the point i think Scott was missing in all his "intentions". it didn't matter to him that the Phoenix is easily corruptible. it didn't matter that it's previously destroyed whole galaxies. it didn't matter that it was currently destroying civilized worlds ON ITS WAY to Earth. he is completely obstinate and completely IMO nucking futs to just completely disregard the idea that the "cure" the Phoenix brings may be, and probably is, worse than the disease he's facing now.
we now learn that Phoenix is the "patron saint" of mutation. OK, great...what if in its quest to champion mutation/mutants, Phoenix does intend to wipe out the rest of the population? what if homo superior isn't the end result of human evolution? what if it's just another rung on the ladder? does the Phoenix reignite the mutant gene only to later wipe all of them out when the next stage comes along? i cannot possibly fathom, based on what we know about this creature and its past history, that anything good it brings comes without a horrible cost...yet Scott simply ignores that fact, or simply doesn't care. either of those options is unacceptable to me, and it's why i side with Cap and the Avengers.
