What I don’t understand is, why did he kidnapped Hope when all he needed was her help? I did a quick search on Crimson Commander and he seemed to be a hero. So why be a villain and take someone against their own will? I’m not surprised the feisty Hope gave him the headbutt. With his vast resources and military contacts, he could have easily went to Utopia and asked for help from Cyclops, maybe even lend his resources to the mutants for a fair exchange. Had that scenario played out, I don’t see why Hope Summers wouldn’t help a fellow mutant in need, an old mutant at that.
