    So In new Avengers number 30 Emma in being transpoted to a prison because she's under arrest for all the crap shes pulled. So my first question is how much is Emma actually responsible for her actions while under the infulence of the Pheonix?

It's a good point and I think this could be said of lots of villains.

    Also Luke Cage decides to quit the Avengers because he feels like its unfair to be risking his life with a baby daughter at home? Is this the right choice? And if so, couldn't you then argue that cops, firemen, and soldiers should not have kids or find different lines of work?

Luke quitting is odd because the danger was never an issue before (his daughter was living with superheroes) and his ID is public anyway. Villains won't forget their grudges because he's not actively on a team.

As for the real world comparison, I don't think so. Cops and firemen don't endanger their lives on a daily basis and create enemies with the the power to destroy cities and the tendency to escape from prisons dozens of times. The soldiers case is a bit more complicated since their risk is less sporadic but more temporary. You just have to look at the risks and how badly you want to be with your family versus the merit of the cause you are fighting for. I know that I wouldn't leave me family to fight in Iraq, for example.
