I liked that shot to the head because once again it showed Scott being distracted. Didn't he just ask for a status report on Hope?
Captain America's shield almost proves my point.
@Guy Gardner...Hope has tapped into the Phoenix Force before. Not the Phoenix Entity. As was shown at the end of the book the away team Avengers encountered the Phoenix Entity which is still making it's way to Earth and Marvel has stated it will choose a new host. I think the obvious belief is that it will choose Hope.
I wonder if the writers have forgotten that Jean Grey is supposed to be regenerating in the White Hot Room and became the White Phoenix at the end of Greg Pax's Phoenix End Song?
