While not as good as Issue 6, Issue 7 of Avengers vs X-Men is another welcome addition to this storyline. I only hope it can be sustained as it goes along.
Leave it to Fraction to write a sympathetic Cyclops. Out of all of them, Peter should be the most peaceful of them (although he's been largely ignored) with Scott behind him. It makes sense for Namor and Emma to be the most corrupted by the Phoenix's power.
Once again, the tie-ins seem to do a better job of explaining certain details, like why the regular X-Men are going along with the Phoenix Five. On the Avengers side, Black Panther is easily coming across the strongest while Steve still seems like a complete douche.
As for Hawkeye, well, he deserved a beatdown from all the years of his "my shit doesn't smell" attitude.
