    The Marvel-verse gov't is willing to turn a blind eye to the occasional killing, accidental or even purposeful, IF you are a hero who has done a whole lot of saving. After all, the Hulk got a Presidential pardon when he saved the world.

    But when you do something so drastic as what Scott did, and it's effects are so wide-spread, they'll need someone to take the fall, they'll need someone to be the Villain they can make a face and example of. Scott is apparently willing to be that face, that villain, and I suspect when he comes to trial he'll tell the judge about how the Phoenix possess him and all the others, but that they need to let the others go because they didn't volunteer like he did, something like that, so that he can plea-bargain his way into being the Martyr that the cause needs and that the Gov't can have to assuage the masses.

Scarlet Witch killed hundreds of people. Her actions effected the whole world. And Scott didn't volunteer to become the Phoenix. He thought it should go to Hope until the Avngers intervened and he became the Phoenix Host by accident. Everything that happened after that was out of his control.

Wanda was responsible for a lot of deaths as a result of M-Day.

Issue is, no one in the government will care enough, as she was basically doing them a favor by eliminating 98% \(\?\) of the mutant threat.

Scott, on the other hand, is going to be viewed as responsible for bringing back mutants, or bringing back the mutant threat, regardless of who actually did it. Perhaps being the fall guy in this case works.

Chances are, this falls into Scott's master plan, which we won't even know he has until it comes time for that plan to be executed.
