Am I the only one missing the hair?

#1 Posted by ssejllenrad (12847 posts) - - Show Bio

OK here's the deal. LAte 80's to 90's X-Men was my fave in both comics and cartoons and Cyclops is my fave character. And so my fave look for him was this:
 

Honestly, anything from his X-factor to New X-Men look was fine for me. Now all my friends are rebuking me for concerning myself with such minor matters but I'm a sucker for details. And everyone of them prefers the covered-head look cause it was more true to the original. I'm not really wanting his old costume to come back, I'm just saying I preferred them. Am I weird in preferring the old costume? Is it too much of a nuisance to care for his hair? (Ok I know the answer here.. YES)... Or are there others like me?

I think for me it's nostalgia, but his is one of the few where I'd prefer the older costume.

personally lve always loved the full cowl just because it was the first time that i had seen him it being his x-factor garb

i like the hair better but the cowl aint bad

I like the hair out but I think thats because his costume with the full cowl is just a one pice suit which makes me think of hooded footie pajamas

I prefer the free-hair look instead of the full-body blue condom :p

I like Cyclops' hair in AoA

Yup, I prefer the 90's version as well. The new look has never done it for me, basically a wet suit..

Yeah, the long hair to cover up the missing eye was a nice touch. A lot of the AoA designs were better than their regular 616 counterparts ;)

I miss the look with the hair. It's more natural. I guess people can say that the blue body condom is more aerodynamic, but as he's not a flier (and looks like a total idiot when lying around with a jetpack), then there's no need to smooth him over from top-to-toe.

I prefer the hair, when you can't see Scotts eyes its creepy enough but in that full body condom of his, he looks even less human. . .

I prefer the cowl. I don't mind the jetpack. He's always been the primary pilot of the Blackbird.

@fodigg: Always made sense considering his father was an Air Force pilot and he possesses enhanced spatial awareness as a byproduct of his mutant power.

No, your not alone. I positively hate the fully body condom...like I know Scott has to be sweating bullets in that thing.

@angeldust616: Personally I thought the jet-pack was a welcomed and humorous touch. :) I mean 99% of the characters are already wearing capes, tights, and spandex. Wat's a jet-pack in the midst of all the other superhero costumes?
 
Heck,the jet-pack is even treated in a light-hearted manner. When Cyclops first shows up in it he demands that the Hammer soldiers, "takes him to their leader."
 
But I digress. As stated before I like the full cowl. I actually wouldn't mind Cykes visor being giving a more look more in line with an actual cyclops, personally.

I never said you said I wasn't allowed to like it, lol :P

With you on some of the AoA designs being better than the 616 counterparts, the AoA style Nightcrawler and Magneto are personal favorites. Personally, I didn't like the long hair on Cyke, I prefer his hair the way it was during Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing.

I've always dug the black and yellow X-Men outfit on Cyke.

While I do like Cyclops's current look, I wouldn't mind seeing him switch over to the black and yellow outfit he wore during Morrison's New X-Men and Whedon's Astonishing (as seen in my avatar). Though I suppose that was more of a "casual" appearance and not really meant for superhero shenanigans.

Why does everyone give Cyclops so much grief over the "blue condom" when characters like Spider-Man and Daredevil wear costumes that could just as easily be mocked in the same fashion? Spider-Man wears a red and blue spider-condom. Daredevil in particular wears almost EXACTLY the same style of costume. His is just red instead of blue, and has little devil horns.

Am I the only one who though the jetpack was awesome? Probably. x]

I feel so alone, as if I'm the only one that doesn't mind his current costume.

@god_spawn: His current costume is fine, he just needs his head visible, like this;
 
Perfect Cyclops Look. The shoulder design looks great too.

Yeah that does look pretty cool. The shoulder desiign kinda looks like one of those old armor shoulder pads.

Yeah! Exactly this! The costume's great, but definitely lacks hair.

I've always liked the costume he has now, the hair is good though, reminds me of the series.

@maikkywin: Yeah, I hate how he always goes, bursting into a character's specific forum just to talk smack about that character. Yep, that's what I call a douche.
