Admittedly, Sunspot and Manifold have kinda kept to the background, although that seems to be changing with the new storyline, where all sorts of weird stuff is going, including a time-jump of several months.

Well. There are four major sub-plots running through different titles which have to do with the time continuum being kinda effed.
There's this major storyline which had the main Avenger comic making a time-jump of several months, with huge personal changes for some characters (Sunspot bought AIM. Cannonball is married to Smasher and they have a kid, which make a lot of X-Fans go oO ). It's still quite mysterious where it is going, but sudden time-jumps with major shake-ups are always suspect of getting a reset.
There was the still very recent Uncanny Avengers storyline where the Apocalypse twins created a timeline where Earth was destroyed and the status was just reset by some of the Uncanny Avengers.
There is the whole "Multiverse Earths are colliding into each other" storyline in New Avengers, which has also now an advanced timeline, with the Illuminati on the run from other Avengers.
And there are new All-New X-Men, i.e. the original five X-Men, who have been brought to the present and are staying here.
Add to this that in some of the cosmic titles people like Thanos are commenting on how there is a major distortion in the time continuum centered on Earth and we got a mix which seems to point towards some Crisis of Infinite Earths type crossover/timeline reset.
I certainly don't hope it is happening, but Marvel are not throwing out all those storylines without a reason. There's something up, IMO.
