To my knowledge it has never been shown to be that powerful.

It appears to be more powerful than Iron man's repulsors.

The marvel universe says that he can knock over a filled 5000 gallon gallon tank truck at a distance of 20 feet.

That's around 80,000 pounds meaning he is hitting with sufficient force to knock over a 40 ton vehicle from 20 feet away. Just another reason why Cyclops is soooooo underrated.

Didnt he blow away a whole mountain range in Secrwt Wars, or was it some other story?

I seem to remember that too. I don't remember which comic it was? Secret Wars (original) maybe?

I am not a cylcops fan at all, but I hate the fact that people think he is a chump. He hits a helluva lot harder than people give him credit for. ANYthing that is in his field of vision he can hit with "knock over 40 tons" power. He is, in my opinion, possibly the most underrated character in terms of power.

An optic blast will mess you up like a car crash. It will knock you to the ground like a hurricane, it will rip your ass in two.

I just checked my Secret Wars TPB. He didn't do that. The most he did was fire an optic blast into a volcano and cause a chain reaction to delay Galactus' devouring of the planet. He also fired the blast in a wide field. He fired it once before through a tall stone structure.

I agree with you. I always thought it odd that so many people disliked his character to such a degree. I guess it was the fact that everyone was always backing Wolverine in the little love triangle they had going.

I just don't like Cyclops. Something about his character.

I like Cyclops, he was probably the first character in the X-Men I liked. Only problem is, since I read the Physics of Superheroes, I know that every optic blast should take his head off. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

He probably has some kind of organ at the back of his head to absorb the force, after all he is a mutant and that means they are supposed to evolve to adapt to situations. When he is releasing half his full power, it causes him pain because even though you have a shock absorbing organ your skull still have to absorb some of the force.

Wow, I said all that but I still got a C in Physics.

Scott's head isn't ripped off for one reason, lol

  1. Scott is immune to his own power so his body absorbs the energy.

    Scott's eyes "acts as an inter-dimensional apertures between this universe and another." -Marvel.com-

In my mind that means the force is being released from his eyes and moves forward. "...it automatically shunts the other-dimensional particles back into their point of origin when they collide with his body." -Marvel.com-

Back on topic.

Slim's Optic Blast has never been measured just witnessed. Its been says he holds back regardless of who he is fighting because he is afraid of what may happen if he lets loose. In my personal opinion I believe it relies on how much energy his body has stored.

He holds back..

#22 Posted by EpicNinja (231 posts) - - Show Bio

Well that depends on what you mean by Kill. It certainly has enough power do dismantle Sinister's body, which would certainly kill most anyone else. But Sinister has the ability to reform his body.

The hardest i've seen from cyclops is destroying apocalypse with a sinlge blast knocking him out and the other is when he busted a whole threw onslaughts armor. He also said to cain marko the juggernaut that he could hit him with the force of a small planet. Cyclops may never be able to use it to his full ability due to the strain it would cause to his body but he can still pack a punch.

exactly, I never said it couldn't kill, I said it couldn't kill Sinister (and yet just a touch of Rogue's skin killed him)"

Rogue had the Strain 88 virus.

Anyhow....Cyclops Optic Blast is very powerful lol That doesn't mean though it can destroy everything.

Not really lol cause we all know mutants usually come in lvls cyclops may not be at the highest lvl but theirs no doubt hes strong but you can't say cyclops and hyperstorm are at the same lvl right?? Hyperstorm could feed galactus lol.

Well there is no official ranking system to say what the Potential of a Mutant is. They use the level "label" very loosely and have only described a select few characters with it. Vulcan, Chamber, Storm, and Jean Grey have all been referred to as Omega-Level or Possible Omega-Level Mutants... But no one has defined what that is. Most of Scott's edge in battle is not his Optic Blast, or his mutant level. It is ability to think on his feet and act just as fast. He is an amazing Tactician, and can accomplish most things by thinking it through. If you've ever read Uncanny X-Men #175 he takes on half the X-men (Including Storm, Wolverine and Colossus) alone with broken ribs. That made Cyke my hero XD lol

his blasts can overload bishop and he himself said he has enough power to split a small planet but he never uses the full extent of his powers because of fear the damage he will cause.

his optic blasts couldn't beat the Hulk. Sucks. Hulk is not Scott.

#42 Posted by danhimself (22630 posts) - - Show Bio

ok here's my problem with his optic blast....it can split a small planet but when he looses his visor he rips off a piece of his shirt and covers his eyes and that works fine...or how is it when he's just wearing his sun glasses that his blast aren't spilling out around the glasses...his power is always on...if he has his eyes closed then his power is blasting away at the inside of his eyelids

#43 Posted by Erik (33329 posts) - - Show Bio

We do not know the true full extent of Cyclops power. He even stated that he was not sure his power only comes out of his eyes.

when Cyclops was taken over by Johnny Dee, and was firing at his full power, Iron Man measured his output at about 2 Giga watts, which is the yearly output of a small nuclear reactor. so... they're damn powerful.
(all occurred in Civil War: X-Men.)

here's my dumb question. if scotty has all this awesome power how come the force of the blast(not the blast themselves) doesnt push his glasses of his face?

The ruby quartz visor diffuses the optic blasts.

He's one of the most underated characters in the MU.
