The NEW Cyclops

#1 Posted by SaintJohn (143 posts) - - Show Bio

Now the thing that always held back Cyclops was his "boy scout" attitude. While noble it doesnt work for all characters and Cyclops is one of them. He was always mocked and ridiculed for years. The only thing he has in his corner was that he has Jean. and when he lost Jean they gave him Emma. Now he has risen has a character popular enough to become the new face of mutants rather than Wolverine. He is a person who truly is a leader. He makes decisions that no other person can make,decisions that if it was the old Scott would have lead to the death of the species. He understood that the old ways wont work the same when your enemies are united. He accomplished the goals of Xavier AND Magneto at the same time because he sees the bigger picture and he always have. There is a reason why he is the best strategist in Marvel. Cyclops has gained MORE fans than he ever had and they out number the "old" fans. I really have enjoyed this new Cyclops for years now. You don't see many leaders of teams who is as dark as Cyclops and willing to go as far as he will to win. I LOVE IT. And to have him escape and run around doing his own thing while saying screw you to the Avengers makes him an ultimate badass. Marvel, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave him like this. There are too many "boy scout" leaders as is. When Cyclops was the "good guy" Nothing seperated his views on things from Captain America. Let there be a big contrast on how he does things from EVERY other leader. Giving him the edge has given a second wind to this character.

I prefer the old one with bits of the new before he went off the rails.

What is considered "off the rails" because him having the PF wasn't his fault. Him forming X-Force, him creating the extinction team, and him making asking Dani to trade a favor for Hela was all him and all of those decisions made sense.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't start a new AvX argument. We know Cyclops is right so let's leave it at that ;)

Anyways, for sure Cyke is the man! And it looks like he'll be the face of All New X-men! Move out wolverine there's a new beast in town!

Just please don't have him flashing the cross arm X every issue. That would make him more a clown then a badass IMHO.

i like the X cross thingy, but it needs to be used wisely, HIm constantly doing it would get odd really quick and make him look stupid, but certain instances it could carry alot of weight

@McKlayn: Ya I'm sure he will only use it when he wants to make a statement in battle or to the public about his cause

I really like the way Cyclops is heading. Seems to me Scott and Logan are going to be the new versions of Magneto and Prof. X.

Everytime I see him in jail, I get the feeling he is that guy from Breaking Bad, except with fighting skills. The school teacher gone bad.
I don't know if thats an accurate comparison but is anyone else getting that vibe?
 
Also a little bit of Osborn, when he was in jail.
This is probably the first time Ive really actually liked Cyclops, he;s a mastermind with backup plans and fighting skills and a potential martyr etc etc (in AVX Consequences, which I thought would be a dumb mini, is actually making waves in the MCU)

@Metatron_Da_Don: Not until you said it lol

@SaintJohn: Not the teen boy scout Cyclops who yells "JEAN!!!" every other sentence. But the Cyclops who took on both the Avengers and the X-men, saved the mutant race, and willingly went to jail with his head held high because he was right all along

@TheCrowbar: Am I off though?I
I only watched 2 breaking bad episodes. But I find it funny, I never really liked Cyclops, cuz he was stiff, but now he's showing he is thinking 2 steps ahead of everyone and is a BAMF. He was ready to be a martyr in jail, then he blamed himself for a death in jail, and had some fights and if last AVX is any indication

Cooking Meth to help your family = Using the Phoenix Force to save mutant kind (at the expense of the Professor)
