    it's not like Scott Summers wasn't guilty of the same sort of skewed sense of justice

If it was so skewed, why was it that no one actually cared what he was doing before AvX. The only reaction he ever got from the other X-men was them walking away. Wonder if things would have turned out different if Logan, Beast, Rogue and Bobby had been next to Scott when the Phoenix broke up instead of the other P5 members.

    He let some really disgusting villains walk around

Yes there was Magneto and some former Acolytes among others. But it's not like it was a secret from law enforcement who was on the island. The Dark Avengers fight was televised. Wolverine could and probably did at some point give the Avengers a list of island residents. Not Scott's fault no one tried to serve any warrants on his citizens.

And let's not forget Frenzy, Toad and Quire are residents of the JGS.

    while locking up the truly repentant and heroic

Who in the world are you talking about? Everyone that comes to mind who was in Danger's prison was trying to destroy Utopia or its individual residents.

    And what passed for trial by jury was absurd, as well

Even Osborn deserved a trial, why he never got one was ridiculous though. Doesn't matter how you twist the events of AvX, Scott did not want to be possessed by the Phoenix, he was, it controlled and corrupted him. Being glad mutants are emerging and not regretting creating Utopia does not make him guilty in America.

    Poetic justice for Scott?

Poetic justice is for Captain America to experience first hand why the X-men had to prioritize their own moral guidelines and second (through fifth) chances for mutants rather than allowing the criminal justice system to do its job.
