" @Son_of_Magnus said:True I think if he has prep to set up traps of some sort he would have this but otherwise he is at the disadvantage of getting punched in the jaw and not knowing what the hell just happened. I can also see him taking this by spinning in a circle(as silly as that sounds) knocking QS off balance then he goes in for the KO" @Vance Astro said:Plus I don't think he would try and kill Quicksilver.

Most of their encounters has Quicksilver easily evading Cyclops' blasts.
Cyclops has gotten precision since the old days, he can bank a shot off a wall, but I think it's beyond his ability to predict Quicksilver's movements and predict the trajectory of a shot at the same time.
Quicksilver takes this.
Cyclops has hit Quicksilver before but probably not consistently enough to avoid a speedblitz pummel.
I think if Cyclops was in a situation where he could ricochet his optic blast many times like an enclosed space or where Quicksilver had to run in a linear trajectory in order to reach him he could take the win. But more often than not I think Quicksilver wins.
<--Devil's advocate. (Randomly I do believe Silver would win majority, however I want to play on a what if..)
Since the fight takes place outside of the X-mansion in the garden, it limits Quicksilver's maneuverability a little. An open space would be more keen for a curb stomp on his part. Depending on how far apart they start Cyke would know that a single fine blast would most likely be evaded. So this would not be a tactic to take, instead he should focus on trying to get off a wide area beam. This way it is severely harder for QS to avoid in this setting. Firing off a beam wider does weaken the impact, but it should be sufficient enough to stun or disorient him. Which he could later follow up with a more focused blast. Even IF he did not feel comfortable with that tactic or that QS could avoid it, then Scott could just blast the ground in front or near Quicksilver. This could knock him back, or even kick up debry that would hamper his sight and there for attack. If the blast managed to knock him back or down, then Cyke could follow it up just like the first tactic. But again this is all a what if.
I'm gonna say Cyke and here's why. Maybe he wouldn't try to kill Quicksilver right of the bat, but he would try to kill his footing. That's to say that Cyke doesn't attack Quicksilver, but rather he blasts as many random things as he can, the ground included maybe he even takes his visor off. Quicksilver wins this easily if he gets moving and swinging, but if he has to watch his step every other movement it slows him down considerably.
So if Cyke can make his own obstacle course I think he could pull this off.
"cyclops is so overrated quicksilver would rip his head off before he can even react. quicksilver wins 10/10 no questions asked. "

Speedsters in the regular marvel universe dont necessarily get the respect they deserve when it comes to battle feats. Most writers i feel write them weaker than their abilities make them.
(should have never been able to happen in my opinion)
I think Mark Millar in the Ultimates was one of the few persons i thought had an understanding of a speedsters ability when he wrote for marvel. (although i think the ultimate version of quicksilver has a power upgrade in speed than his marvel 616 universe counterpart)
Cyclops has been written to KO two of marvels more famous speedster, northstar and quicksilver once or twice. However i dont think it would really be possible based on a speedster's ability to move, think, react and perceive at high speeds.
Though i think Northstar is quicker than quicksilver, i think the same way the fight went when northstar fought cyclops, is the same way it will go with this fight. So my vote is on Quicksilver.
Also some of marvel writers forget that quickilver, being a speedster, can make his blows hit like jackhammers at the speed and amount he lands. He should be able to KO cyclops
