Instead, it's Cap and the Avengers trying to tell him how wrong it is.. that's completely backwards, and just shows how out of touch Cyke is. He's got tunnel vision, and doesn't care about the consequences of any of his actions.
I am not trying to say that Cyclops is right. He clearly does have tunnel vision in regards to the Phoenix but the Avengers have absolutely NO right to come to Utopia and demand that Cyclops turn over Hope to their custody. They are not the experts on the Phoenix just because they are the Avengers and they currently have Wolverine on their side. If they had any interest in resolving this situation peacefully then they should have attempted a better strategy then "Let's go to Utopia and demand that Cyclops turn over Hope with no better argument than we're right and you're wrong." It was absolutely never going to work and Captain America should have known that.
Also.. the Helicarrier was cloaked. They were there for Cap's protection, which as Cyclops proved, was a smart choice. Cap did not attack Cyclops. He came to talk. Scott made the first move.
True the Helicarrier was cloaked, I'll give you that. Cyclops couldn't see
it or the Avengers that were standing on the deck. However, do you mean to tell me that Emma, the Cuckoos, or any of the other telepaths on that Island couldn't tell they were there? Plus, if there wasn't a Helicarrier there, then just how in the hell did Captain America come to be standing on their beach? Cyclops isn't stupid, he knew they were there.
Cyclops may have thrown the first punch but it was only after Captain America said that he wasn't asking
him to turn Hope over. Come on, what are you going to do when somebody comes you and demands that you give him your granddaughter because he thinks that she is going to become the host for something you know better than he does? Cyclops may have physically attacked first but Captain America threw down the gauntlet first.
