You see, I thought Wolverine and the X-Men #10 made Scott look the best he's been in months. He doesn't go all crazy and talks about his hope for...well, Hope. He keeps things on the positive and makes a better argument for his side than Wolverine does, who still relies on the whole "You're all nuts" card.
The one knock I have about Scott's argument about the Phoenix being the savior of mutantkind is that he sure as hell hasn't acted like it is. He absolutely refused to talk about it with Hope, even when asked by her about it. He's supposed to be a strategic genius but anyone with common sense knows that you only make things worse when you refuse to acknoweldge a problem. The Phoenix is the savior and Hope is the likely host yet he refuses to tell Hope anything about it. Despite the fact that it could help prepare her. By doing so, Scott has made this situation with Hope a lot worse. Quite frankly, his refusal to tell her anything has been cowardly.
