    Because I've been reading the X-Men for 19 years and they are being painted as bad guys and that makes me sad.

    Not like the Avengers are being shown in a better light. I mean unless it's now heroic to throw kids into Sentinel camps.

    Exactly. The only way you can have those two groups fight each other is to make them both act like assholes, which is what Marvel did.

    I also fully believe that the only reason Thing got put into the Avengers this time around was so they could have him fight against Colossus.

    I'm not exactly thrilled about that either (although I don't think your second point is entirely fair based on what I've read about Avengers Academy upcoming story). But while I enjoy the Avengers I'm still an X-fan deep down.

    When I see Avengers vs. X-Men registration/rights arguments, I just want Reed Richards to show up, give a lecture about transhumanism as a choice everyone should be entitled to, and then reveal that he shipped out packages to everyone on the planet with a device inside and a big red button that, when pressed, will turn them into a mutant. Not just a metahuman but an actual Marvel mutant, remapping their DNA with terragen mist extract and nano-thingamabobs. Anybody who wants super-powers can have them.

    And then have a double splash page of Cyclops and Cap, mouths agape, while Reed smiles and shrugs. Tony is in the background pouring himself a drink.

    that would be awesome when are you going to do it?

    Well there's an explanation for why Rachel isn't taking a huge role in the story.

    Spoiler:
    Rachel ends up in a psychic coma caused by the Phoenix's return to Earth


    Though I wonder what that means for Quentin Quire.
