Despite the similarity of the titles, ''Avengers vs. X-men'' should not be confused with the 1987 miniseries ''X-Men vs. Avengers'', which centered on the character Magneto's (second) trial before an international court.

** During the tie-in with ''Comicbook/AvengersAcademy'', Wolverine more or less kidnaps the teenaged X-Men and imprisons them at the Academy. Comicbook/{{X 23}}, who had been attending since before the whole mess even began, ''immediately'' calls Logan out for dragging innocent children into the middle of an incredibly pointless fight. She later tells off Emma Frost for her attempts to destroy Juston's Sentinel, eventually forcing Emma to back down by comparing what Emma is doing to Juston to the persecution they've faced all their lives as mutants.

** On the Avengers' side, we have Spider-Man as this. While he is with the Avengers, it's clear he just wants to minimize any collateral damage while trying to figure out what is going on, all in the background. Perhaps because of this, fate would have him becoming Hope's teacher. In fact, one of his first lessons to her is on the ethics of "great power and great responsability" and how it could motivate someone when they feel overwhelmed. This makes sense as, since Spidey is no stranger to [[HeroWithBadPublicity being ostracized]], he has over the years generally shown more sympathy for the X-Men's plight than most of his fellows and as seen with Hope, he definitely strikes a chord to many a teen hero and the odds they face.

** Cable after [[UnexplainedRecovery miraculously]] surviving his last HeroicSacrifice, winds up in a future where the world is destroyed and his body is breaking down. Blaquesmith, one of his close friends, tells him that the world ends up this way because of something the Avengers do to Hope. Cable decides to travel back in time to capture and nearly kill the Avengers in his last 24 hours of life, rather than explain the situation or have Blaquesmith do so.

* SupermanStaysOutOfGotham: Invoked. Once the "war" starts the X-Men accuse the Avengers of never caring about mutants because they never took an active stance against the mess that Mutants have had to face since M-Day, which involves several wholesale genocide attempts, which include a school bus full of dead children, and Mutantkind in general being forced onto an isolated Island to prevent themselves being subjected to legislation that was meant to restrict them from having children.

Whether his accusation has a point (like Hawkeye's arrow on his neck had point) or if this was just further proof that Scott was just falling further off the edge is up to the reader.

** After Cyclops says that Phoenix could be used to "put the world back on track", Magneto points that Cyclops is starting to sound like him. It turns out this is a BerserkButton for Cyclops when this happens one too many times. For a while, people have been saying this to him when he gets particularly protective of mutant kind, and this bit is essentially him spitting back. [[spoiler: But, as he's now Phoenix powered and as such insane, he replies that the difference is "he's winning".]]

* BecauseISaidSo: [[spoiler:The High Priest of Wakanda grants Black Panther an annullment of his marriage with Storm. The High Priest being Black Panther himself.]]
* BerserkButton: Many buttons were pressed during the story. Storm when Comicbook/BlackPanther revealed he had plans to stop her powers (Which, considering how Shadow King loves playing GrandTheftMe on her, you have to admit is reasonable), Rogue and the other X-Teachers when ComicBook/SheHulk injured Hellion and Glob Herman (Who were attacking her), ComicBook/MoonKnight when Frenzy called him Marc Spector and X-23 and the rest of ComicBook/AvengersAcademy when Emma Frost came to destroy Juston's Sentinel. The event was a big button smashing event overall.
* BigBad: [[CosmicEntity The Phoenix Force]], which manipulates the majority of the Phoenix Five. {{Subverted}} however, while it indeed layed waste to other planets who reached a evolutionary dead end (which, as cruel as it sounds, is its job) it originally was ''not'' there to destroy Earth, all it wanted was to reignite the X-Gene. Things went downhill because it was repeatedly attacked. Captain America even admitted that.

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: At the very beginning both Cyclops and Captain America have valid reasons for leading their teams to take the actions they're taking. On the Avenger side they are taking preventative measures in case Hope can't control the Phoenix, which does wind up happening, to prevent catastrophic damage to the planet. On the X-Men side they have a better understanding of the Phoenix and a very valid reason to believe it is coming to restore Mutants as a species.

* BullyingADragon: The very reason why the Phoenix Five went insane. Even after making the world a better place and ''helping'' the Avengers on several occasions, the latter still thought it was a good idea to repeatedly assault them. When somebody is being possessed by a cosmic Entity that amplifies emotions (especially negative ones) and is capable of annihilating entire universes, this is not the brightest thing to do.

** The fighting started when Captain America turned up on Utopia and told Cyclops that, regardless of the X-Men's opposition, the Avengers were going to take Hope off-world in the event she couldn't control the Phoenix Force. Cyclops responded by optic blasting Captain America off Utopia, and prompting him to call in the rest of the Avengers to start fighting. The entire mess would've been avoided if the two leaders of the superhero and mutant communities had actually talked things over like adults.
** It's pretty much being volleyed back and forth between the two teams like its an Olympic sport. There are plenty of fights that could have been easily averted if both sides just acted maturely and rationally like actual adults.

* MoralDissonance: In he end, the Phoenix Five are punished, with Cyclops being regarded as a war criminal. Never mind the fact that they were mind-controlled by the Phoenix and shouldn't be held responsible, but many of the people condemning them for their actions have ''also'' committed crimes while not themselves, but also Cap's behavior during the whole debacle is very similar to the way Tony Stark acted during Civil War, which Cap was violently against. Add in the fact that the whole mess and every time it escalated was directly the Avengers fault, making Cap, the Avengers, and the X-Men that sided with the Avengers come off as very hypocritical.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Wolverine, as always. However it's not just him, Red Hulk also thinks that way and even says that the P5 acted foolish by sparing him.

** On the Avengers' side and more subtlety, Spider-Man. While he is with the Avengers, it's clear he just wants to minimize any collateral damage and tryign to figure out what is going on. Perhaps because of this, fate would have him becoming Hope's teacher. He ends up teaching her the values of power and the responsability that comes with it. This makes sense as, since Spidey is no stranger to [[HeroWithBadPublicity being ostracized]], he has over the years generally shown more sympathy for the X-Men's plight than most of his fellows and as seen with Hope, he definitely strikes a chord to many a teen hero and the odds they face.
