    =Referring to Tony's business as STARK ENTERPRISES was unforgivably premature or post-dated.

Pretty sure that's the point. This place is an abandoned part of Stark Enterprises, not Stark's current project.

    =Placing this meeting chronologically is confounding as usual. Presumably, after PF-Cyke said "NO MORE AVENGERS" but before the Avengers became fugitives onthe run (apparently) for weeks and definitely before PF-Namor is taken down in Wakanda. It's a little anticlimactic with this in mind and given where readers are 'IN THE PRESENT' a followup summoning of a depowered Namor by the Illuminati would have been even more 'must read'.

Definitely before Wakanda. Probably shortly after Xavier's meeting with Scott on Utopia.

    =Tony talked like a a$$. Now, he should not be the saint of the group but his inappropriateness went on for too long here and he offered nothing constructively which really was too bad. And BTW, that Wells Fargo statement better have been another half-a$$ed joke at everyone's expense.

I really don't like how the gems are being used by current writers. They are not uncontrollable. They are not things to be feared. They were used for ages with no problem, whatsoever, except for Warlock's Soulgem. They also do not abide not being used. Putting them away on some shelf should be impossible. They would go elsewhere.

    =Professor Xavier was a jerk. [Kitty Pryde was right all along! \:\) ] He had the inside track but failed to win over the Illuminati (or me). He selfishly offered no new insight, instead playing the anti-mutant card and ran off the wounded soul.

Professor Xavier was RIGHT! So, he completely gets a pass.

    =Reed Richards was no help. He makes no suggestion of Ultimate Nullifier, Cosmic Cube (real or homemade), Franklin and his sidekick Galactus, Uatu Consultations. Instead, he suggested NOT fixing the sitch or using the Infinity Gems 'cuz things were pretty good right now - save the AvsX bad blood. He is probably just peeved the FF were not invited to the party in the first place. ;\)

Well, I do kind of agree that he was not much help. He seemed kind of like an armchair quarterback. However, he was 100% correct. So, he gets a pass. Ultimate Nullifier would not work. Franklin would not work. Cosmic Cube would not work. Galactus would not work. Uatu? That's a laugh. Uatu soils his toga over the Phoenix. Phoenix is above all of those things you list.
