So after AvX we get some new costume designs for plenty of Marvel characters and on the Marvel now poster we get a look at (potentially) Cyclops' new costume. And I say potentially because there are plenty of rumors and speculation around him. Some include he may die after AvX or it may be O5-clops.

But say it is him. What is your guys opinion on it in advance? Personally, I've grown to think it is alright. I still like the dark blue and gold, but red or possibly black or blue (glowing red due to optic blast) doesn't look so bad. I think if it is his outfit then it kind of symbolizes both Magneto and Xavier's influence on Cyclops in physical form. The possible red and Magneto helmet-esque looking hood/mask looks like Mags' helmet and the X on the belt and X shaped visor symbolizes his connection to the X-Men. I'm still not in favor of the X shaped visor though.

Looks like Manga Cyke kinda nyah nyah.

that looks silly. He would shoot x shape optic blasts when they are better in rectangles.

Nay. I don't mind the red suit but the X shaped visor looks really bad.

That's really my only gripe about it.

That looks horrible.

Nay.

Before he looked like roll-on deodorant, now he looks like....I'd rather not say.

#8 Posted by Blood1991 (8098 posts) - - Show Bio

Soooo much Nay.

#9 Posted by FearTheLiving (3079 posts) - - Show Bio

Nay, should have kept the visor and just thrown in some black in the costume. Too much red and just not feeling the X.

#10 Posted by halpme (2 posts) - - Show Bio

Nay. Neither do I like the red suit nor the new X-shaped visor.

#11 Posted by Onemoreposter (4047 posts) - - Show Bio

He looks like Judge Dredd.

#12 Posted by AgeofHurricane (7297 posts) - - Show Bio

Nay.

That costume, imho, is horrible. Looks like Marvel is hell-bent on covering up more of Scott's face.

My initial reaction was 'Bleh, why would they do this?'

I've given it some time though and it has grown on me. Even the X shaped visor.

#15 Posted by Deranged Midget (17599 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't mind him wearing red, the visor simply looks ridiculous.

Of course its a no.

The helmet is really bad. I wish Cyclops would go back to when he didn't wear headgear.

I'm fine with it. I mean, after all the terrible writing Cyclops has had over the past few years, people are complaining about his f*cking costume?

ugliest sh*t ever. what did they do to cyclops? poor him.

#22 Posted by One_Eye (783 posts) - - Show Bio

@FadeToBlackBolt: @Deranged Midget: @ArtGamer: @god_spawn: Nay. I want a traditional-shaped visor as I just don't see the practicality of the X-shape as far as actual battle application. If he has an 'X' on his visor then why does he need one on his belt. That's the one thing that annoyed me about X-Men costumes of the nineties-era and early two-thousand was the over-saturation of 'X's" on the their costumes. One 'X' per costume please. Given the possible allusion to Magneto I can forgive the helmet and could even go with a visor that's literally circular-shaped as that's something that's only been explored in his Mangaverse self. Heh, it'd even be interesting if the helmet provided protection from telepathic attacks.

I'd rather his costume be blue as of now he just looks like Dare Devil. Red is already a strong enough color as is and at best should be used in moderate amounts. If I was to even go with a color outside of blue then I'd even incorporate the old-school black and gold motif of the Jack Kirby/Stan Lee. What better way to allude to his background with Professor Xavier than by taking his uniform back to its' roots. I'd go with an all black color scheme but add some gold trim for accents, then apply red in select amounts.

Really, the biggest offender to me,((And I know that this is going to sound weird...)) is the belt. I've never understood the purpose of a belt on a spandex suit. I'm sure that there's so purpose for the pouches but if Cykes didn't use them during the nineties then why would he use them now.

That's just my two-cents.

I think the X shaped visor is just visually awesome! I mean he's going to be shooting X shaped beams!

#24 Posted by God_Spawn (37877 posts) - - Show Bio

@One_Eye: Yeah. I don't understand the visor at all. And I agree with your sentiment on it, though I don't mind the design. A black or dark blue would be cooler, but we don't even know if it is red. That could just be the glow due to optic blasts.

Take away the stupid X-visor, and the costume is ok.

thing is if you combine bad writing with bad costume, what else can you root for?

@danhimself: i don't think it works in that way or i hope no, because just make it worse...

Personally, I always preferred this look to anything else. No hood, just the visor.

Lose the hood!

Nay, looks very silly, prefer his 90s and astonishing X-men Costume.

#34 Edited by fodigg (6146 posts) - - Show Bio

Big effing NAY. They're ditching Cyclop's best costume of all time--the Whedon Astonishing costume--for this? And for the silly "X" visor? The only way to improve upon his current costume is to throw a gray duster over it. This is KNOWN.

#35 Posted by fodigg (6146 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh, but I don't mind the belt-less X-shoulder variation they're using recently.

Those were relatively minor changes to the Astonishing one that I didn't mind.

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

No sir, I don't like it.

@ApatheticAvenger:

I quite like the costume actually, though I understand why I would be in the minority on that.

You still got me :D.

It looks like Cyclops is in a bad nightmare.

#48 Posted by BlackArmor (6141 posts) - - Show Bio

Nay I prefer his classic more iconic visor, it was instantly recognizable among comic fans and an integral focal point of most of his previous designs. Can we really say that this is Cyclops without the classic visor?

#49 Posted by shol (129 posts) - - Show Bio

Nay. The helmet looks beyond ridiculous and the outfit just has too many things going on (POUCHES!! NEEDS MORE POUCHES!!) in my opinion. I would have preferred his original Astonishing costume or the revamped version without the hood or something simple but distinct like his Age of X costume.

#50 Posted by Sveppi (20 posts) - - Show Bio

Nay. In general these Marvel Now costumes don't look to hot.
