Hi,

Just a question, I bought Uncanny X-men # 1 and was wondering if this is the first appearance of cyclops' new costume?

To a degree, I would say yes. His other visor kept flying off of his face easily in ANXM. This new one looks built into the cowl and seems more stable.

@god_spawn:  Ha Ha Ha  Ha... You would think he would figure that problem out a little bit sooner. I don't know who lost their eyewear more Cyclops or Thelma from Scooby Doo?

Thelma/Velma did. If CYCLOPS was losing his eyewear on a regular basis, they'd start treating him like the Hulk: "What's that? Cyclops is heading towards a city? Signal evacuation, everyone out before he gets there. If he loses his glasses, we're ****ed."

On topic: Yes, this is the first appearance of the new costume. The explanation appears to be: Well, the visor keeps getting blasted off his face since he can't control the blast (Hence why in the past, when he decided to go '**** this thing, I'mma nuke it', he generally removed his visor first before opening his eyes fully) so he built the visor into the helmet to help mitigate the damage. Still can't control his output, but he can better control where that output goes.

Sounds like a good enough explanation. still... would have thought it would be explained in some way in the pages of Uncanny or ANXM.
