Be honest out of the two most most popular characters in x-men. who comes first in your mind when the topic of x-men comes up? Logan or Scott?

Cyclops

but I don't think of Wolverine as just an X-Man

Like Cap is to the Avengers

But Wolverine/Hulk are their own separate beings

Both. Cyclops is so iconic to the X-Men mythos but Wolverine, while being on more than one team, is more popular than Cyclops and is more known on the X-Men team than an Avenger.

uhh Storm. She's the Goddess and the True King of Wakanda.

No but seriously, Cyclops, Wolverine is at his best as a lone wolf. Not a Drill Sgt. with a heart of gold.

Always a fan of Cyclops but I want them to roll him back from the path they led him down. The only way to do that is to have him not be the leader of all the mutants by further breaking up the mutants as a whole. That way he will only be the leader of his team. 
 
The need to stop trying to make Wolverine be everything and go back to what he actually is

Tough question. I'm not sure I think of one character. I'd guess Cyclops because I think of the original X-Men and then flash over to the revised Claremont X-Men and Scott is on both teams.

#15 Posted by sinestro_GL (3282 posts) - - Show Bio

I guess Cyclops...but I think of Prof. X of course.

Cyclops

Wolverine is more of an avenger than an x-man. It's shocking that he is teaching in a school. who would want a serial killer teaching their children? IMO

#19 Posted by Rabbitearsblog (6020 posts) - - Show Bio

This is tough, but I guess I'll go with Cyclops since he was one of the original five X-Men.  Wolverine had more of a presence in X-Men than in Avengers.

Cyclops, the first of the X-Men. From day one he's been the iconic character of the team, going from being Xavier's golden boy to becoming the mutant commander we see now. Wolverine is certainly more popular, but Cyclops is the ultimate X-Man.

qft!

Same, Ororo may be my favorite, but Scott is the X-Men.

#25 Posted by TheThe (1752 posts) - - Show Bio

When i think about X-men, Cyclops is not the first to come in my mind. In order : Jean Grey, Prof X, Storm, Wolverine, Magneto.

#26 Posted by JohnnyWalker (821 posts) - - Show Bio

your options: wolverine. with no options: jean grey/ beast/ nightcrawler. cyclops is the last one that comes to mind due to douchness. ultimate douchness.

#27 Posted by TDK_1997 (15079 posts) - - Show Bio

Both.Because when I first heard about the X-Men I knew about Wolverine and Colossus only and Logan was my favorite X-Man.But when I got more into comic books I learnt which was the first X-Men team and who are the founding members.

#28 Posted by X35 (5981 posts) - - Show Bio

Professor X.

#29 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23334 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops, of course

#30 Posted by TheAcidSkull (18315 posts) - - Show Bio

wolverine, even though he is a lone wolf , he still comes to mind

#31 Edited by TheThe (1752 posts) - - Show Bio

It so strange when you think about it. Cyke is the first X-men, the leader and the one Marvel wants to be the "face"of the team, but he still doesnt have a stature or an iconic status. It's like, i dont know...he is here, but not really "present" in pop culture(or geeky culture). Why is that, despite all the place the writers gave him in the team? Maybe he doesnt have the mass-appeal or "Cool" attitude, or maybe he is lacking a defining story arch revolving around him only(like the dark phoenix saga for jean). If somebody ask me to name 5 defining things about him, my answers will always involving others characters, like if Cyke was a supporting character or something.

#34 Posted by JohnnyGat (1576 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops. He was the first X-men before the "First X-men" (by the way that comic is horrible).

Cyclops then Wolverine and Storm tie for second.

#37 Posted by KNlGHTWlNG (25 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops. The first X-man, the leader, the one everyone looks up too (well did look up to). However since the X-men movies Cyclops has been seriously downplayed. If you watch those movies and focus on Cyclops he completely gets screwed.

Movie 1 - Too busy showing Jean flirt with Wolverine for him to really do anything.

Movie 2- Gets captured, mind controlled, then gets beaten up by Jean.

Movie 3- "Dies" in first 5 minutes of the god damn movie.

What happened was they took the fan love for Wolverine and mixed it with Hugh Jackman's star power. And the movie can't have 2 male leads so sucks to be Cyclops.

I dunno why but I always immediately just see the whole team as silhouetted figures with glowing X's on their chests every time I think X-men.

#39 Posted by SoA (5111 posts) - - Show Bio

#45 Edited by lorex (958 posts) - - Show Bio

When I think of the X-Men I think of Cyclops the strong leader. Wolverine was always the reliable(in a crunch) soldier. I know there has been a huge editorial push in the last few years to further raise the profile of Wolverine, with him becoming a leader in Schism and now in the aftermath of Avengers vs X-Men his star is likely to raise further. He was already popular but his rise in stature among the X-Men has largely been at the expense of Cyclops. He has been continually portrayed to be more and more in a darker light and now as a host of the Phoenix force he is the 'bad guy'. Who does the establishment turn to, Wolverine.

#46 Posted by DADDY_XERO (76 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops has been given a raw deal by writers. he unifies his people when they are the brink of extinction and for his trouble he is made out to be a dictator and militaristic nut-case. Cyke gets a huge raw deal and he takes it on the chin and continues to try and do write by his people.

wolverine on the other, always a loner suddenly becomes the shinning light and greatest leader the x-men have ever had. pfft. whatevs

#47 Posted by slimlim (266 posts) - - Show Bio

CYCLOPS.

Wolverine is more "popular" and is probably in more X books than Cyke.

Yet...

When i see Cyclops i think of the X-Men

When i see Wolverine, i just think "Wolverine".

Cyclops is more central to the X-Men, whereas Wolverine is so spread thin he doesn't necassarily belong to anything now other than himself.

Wolverine, but its very close.

#49 Posted by clemj (817 posts) - - Show Bio

#50 Posted by PassionFlower (963 posts) - - Show Bio

I am far more a Wolverine fan (I actually liked stick-in-the-mud Scott Summers better but his turn has put me off the last couple years) but I think Summers over Logan.
