Also, there are better ways to bring realism into a story, like having well developed characters respond to a situation in a way that doesn't demand more than reasonable suspension of disbelief.

But for now, I do think it's interesting what they're doing with AoA Kurt. They've certainly gone out of their way to establish that he's not the Kurt the 616 X-Men know, and every time that's brought up it reminds people that Kurt is dead and at least some of the X-Men are still feeling that void. And then there's the bamf thing...

I don't know about Pixie, but it looks like AvX is setting up to have Rogue severe her ties with Cyke AND Logan once and for all. Just because you're not a fan of a character and a definite fan of another doesn't mean someone isn't allowed and/or capable of getting limelight.
The fact that every major arc has been about Hope Summers for years now is just Marvel pushing their own agenda
