Could Cyclops be a Avenger?

Posted by spiderguylll (620 posts) - - Show Bio

If he wasn't an X-Men could he be a Avenger? Could he lead them?

Yes, I mean he really could but that would really take him away from the X-Men. I'd say they would have to do something drastic in order to do that. Maybe if he wasn't a mutant anymore or his powers changed. Maybe if he was forced out due to a mistake and the Avengers took him back as a form of redemption.

No.  It would mean that he wasn't a leader any more... and what's the point in Cyclops if he's not bossing everyone else around & putting other people's lives in danger?

True I mean could you imagine what might happen to his psyche if he was forced to follow an honest to god good leader?

I think if he was not an X-men he can be an avenger.

I think Cyclops on the Avengers could work pretty well.

No, he shouldn't be.

I think Cyclops is the X-man that would be the absolute worst fit for the Avengers, he's just too closely associated with the X-Men. 
 
Now, if we removed most of his history with the X-Men he would probably fit in quite well there. But then he would no longer be Cyclops.

He could but he shouldn't

He would have to toughen up first, because the first time he looked at Sharon Carter to wrong way (after all the guy has a wondering eye for the ladies) Cap would beat his ass.

LOL good point has he ever had to follow a real leader?

I seem to recall an avengers/x-men crossover from a few years back where they followed Steve Roger's lead. As I remember, of course Cyclops was the whinny looser he always is in that story. Real heroes like Cap, Thor and Spiderman did most of the work.

That's awesome, but hey that's how Cyclops coasts through life. Letting others do his job for him.

You're preaching to the choir man. God, I find Cyclops annoying.

If you going to start putting X-men on the Avengers there are people that fit much better than Cyclops. 

#19 Posted by Jake Fury (17922 posts) - - Show Bio

 
I don't him being able to follow the orders of someone else. 

#20 Posted by Kain (197 posts) - - Show Bio

Sure. He could lead them as well. It'd be interesting for the Avengers to actually have a good leader with personality and depth that isn't such a whiny boyscout like Cap. :-)

During Onslaught guess who Cap and the Avengers were taking orders from? That's right, Cyclops. Cap was taking his marching orders from Cyclops and he liked it.

Cyclops is the definitive X-Man. X-teams without Cyclops as leader (or overseer) are always terrible. No Cyclops, no X-Men. You don't put him on the Avengers. It just doesn't work.

#23 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe. I'd rather see him operate as a solo hero though.

#24 Posted by Black Lantern Mar-vell (2015 posts) - - Show Bio

I could see it working, but I still hate the guy.  I'd rather see Iceman or Colossus as Avengers.
#25 Posted by N7_Normandy (2430 posts) - - Show Bio

Moot point; Cyclops wouldn't leave the X-Men

#26 Edited by duffman92 (49 posts) - - Show Bio

 Absolutely not. He's a natural born leader and he's arrogant, so he would try to lead the Avengers as he does with the X-Men, but Avengers aren't his family as the X-Men are and they wouldn't follow his order without asking explanations or contesting his decisions and Cyke couldn't tollerate all this "lack of respect". Avengers are a group of strong people whit strong personality and their strenght is cooperation not to blindly follow the orders of a leader, even if cool as Scott is. Cap is the leader of the avengers in the battlefield but he doesn't take decisions for the whole team on his own like Cyclops do. X-Men are a family lead by a singol person, like in a monarchy, avengers are a democracy.
 
BTW this is one of my first posts, I'm a new user and I come frome Italy (sorry for the possible mistakes)
 
P.S. this doesn't mean I don't like the x-men, I do.
 P.P.S. I really like the site

One would hope during a mutant based story arc that someone from the XMen took charge.

He could but I doubt he would after the short end of the stick they and other groups have given him and the mutants over the years.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WE DONT NEED A FLOP GUY  in the Avengers.

The Problem here is if you put him and Iron man in the same room the place would explode from sheer douche baggery

I now change my stance.

He'd make for a great Avenger. They might actually appreciate the sacrifices he's made, unlike the X-Men, who act like a bunch of sanctimonious twelve year olds with their eyes shut and their fingers in their ears.

#34 Posted by Kairan1979 (15739 posts) - - Show Bio

It could be funny to see Cyclops following orders from Cap.

#35 Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt (11701 posts) - - Show Bio

i think so, but i doubt he would actually WANT to be. he sticks with the x-men out of neccesity
#36 Posted by Rosencrantz&Guildenstern (275 posts) - - Show Bio

It might be beneficial to him for a short time, getting away from the burden of leadership and finally taking some well due chill pills.

well.... how should i put this?....

  
  actually that pretty much sums it up!

I'd rather see him hit by a bus. Now Iceman that would be a good fit

Say what you will, but I'm loving Cyke atm. And Iceman needs more exposure altogether.

that was hilarious and it should be used to replace the facepalm because it is that epic.

Cyclops doesn't take **** from anyone if he joins the Avengers, he is the leader.
