    It's funny how Cap tells Reed that using the gems were not even being hinted at when they were discussing just that before Reed walked into the room.

Well I took that to mean that Xavier was being sarcastic when he asked Stark why he didn't use an infinity gem. Tony had just asked "why don't you switch his brain off?" and Charles snapped back with "why don't you use an infinity gem on him?".     I think that Cap took it to mean that Charles wasn't seriously considering it.

    In addition, IMO, if Marvel did Thor right, Strange or Namor would be out of the Illuminati so fast, replaced with the God of Thunder. He's sacrificed so much more for the Earth than those two put together. Or maybe he would disagree with some (most) of the Illuminati's decisions...

There's an even better reason to keep Thor out of it.   Everyone else there is something of a leader in his area/world.   Thor is second to Odin.    The Illuminati probably doesn't want Odin involved with them, and keeping it a secret from him would be problematic if Thor were a member.
