As the battle on Utopia draws on, and Hope has already left, Scott tells Danger to activate the Avengers Protocol.

Scott just struck a blow across the Avengers bow of public opinion. They can say whatever they want now, but the word is out that they just invaded Utopia to apprehend Hope for doing nothing wrong.
