Woah..... Im re reading new,astonishing, and uncanny all from new xmen and I just noticed that after charles shoots cassandra nova after emma takes off hee cerebra helmet, he says "To me my xmen" and all the xmen are posed. Did uncanny xmen in the present reference this with Cyclops? Or is it just a coincidence

"To me, my X-men" is something Xavier used to say from since way back in the 60's. Cyclops first said it in Whedon and Cassaday's Astonishing run, but anyone saying it is a very deliberate nod to Xavier.

yes it is kind of like (if they had one) the X men's battle cry like uh "Avenger's Assemble" used alot with the original 5 but once the new group came in and Professor X kind of took a back seat to people like Cyclops and Storm it kind of faded, i really like that Cyclops used it almost as him saying I am the New Leader, the Sole Leader of the Real X men, (rather you agree or not his personality now seems like something he thinks and would say or do ) and i wouldn't mind if it became a regular thing with him during this run.

"To me, my X-Men" is the X-Men's version of "Avengers Assemble". It's the closest thing they have to a trademark battle-cry.
