After the events of Avengers vs X-Men

Xavier is dead

and Wolverine is pretty clear on who to blame - Cyclops.

But without the actions of Iron Man in Avengers vs X-Men #5:

The Phoenix Force would have gone into Hope, instead of the "Phoenix Five":

Was Iron Man ever really held accountable for this? I'm particularly interested in any Iron Man / Wolverine interaction.

Especially considering the resolution of Avengers vs X-Men was to get the Phoenix Force into Hope anyway.

No. (Or, probably not.)

There is no reference to Iron Man taking the fall for the mentioned actions in Avengers vs. X-Men.

There is no definitive reference, however, but it could be implied or a headcanon that Iron Man does take the fall. But, in no comics on the Avengers vs. X-Men timeline did Iron Man take backlash for the events of the timeline.
