A ticking neuro-bomb on board Standish's plane was all it would take to send as many people, whether they want to or not, to heaven before the super-powered blasphemy could drag their sells to hell, or wherever they popped out from in the first place, and Wolverine's kill crew was all it would take to stop it from happening.
With the widespread chaos and destruction around them, it's highly rational for normal human beings to regard everything with the potential to kill anything in its sight with exquisite, indiscriminating fear. The X-Force was no exception in this case. The issue depicted the recent Rapture affair with much violence and gore, which makes us somewhat grateful we only had a mob of normal narrow-minded human beings heralding the alleged end of times in everybody's faces, or rather, the instant those involved be raised to heaven, leaving the unbelievers to their demise with the destruction of the planet. The chillingly peaceful image of the Wolverine and his team standing in front of the cathedral where Standish was decapitated by Wolverine himself and after all that had transpired and was still in the process of transpiring was, for want of a better term, a poetic piece of imagery.
