If they wanted to make Cyke interesting, they should have just made him a villain without giving him Phoenix powers. All the crap the X-Men have gone through over the past few years, Scott has kept the faith through it all, but this last one could be breaking point for him.

- We've been told for 30 years how Scott is this master strategist/leader on par with Cap, as a villain he could prove it.
- Let's remember that Scott's powers are no joke when he cuts lose. He can level Sentinels, overpower Bishop with the sheer depth of his power reserve, etc. He doesn't do this sort of thing as a hero much, but as a villain, he could go and, say, level Detroit. No, he couldn't tank the Avengers or a full X-Men squad all by himself, but he could hold his own/get good shots in against any individual members.
- He's potentially got access to Shi'ar and/or Celestial level technology, allowing him to possess any number of deus ex machina escape devices.
- While he's not powerful enough to carry a Brotherhood-level team by himself like Mags can, give him a team with slightly more powerful members than Blob and Toad, coupled with some incredible plans and ruthlessness, and he could be a serious threat.

You could get 10 years easy out of Scott and his team showing up to kick some ass every 6-9 months, with Xavier/Logan/Jean(if alive)/etc all angsting about stopping Scott or finding the good left in him or wanting to kill him or whatever. It's the great betrayal of Xavier's dream, and hell, you throw Sinister or Poccy in the mix, you could even start killing him off and bringing him back all the time.

Bhasayate: I mean,if you're surrounded by healers, why not let one of them heal your damn legs yo


One of the most common* reasons that Xavier can't walk is that basically all of his brainpower is going into his psychic abilities. When shiat goes down that deprives him of his powers, the first thing he usually does is stand up and start running (usually away from a dinosaur or whatever stupid shiat is associated with the null-power trap). The amusing implication being that his powers do supernatural things to his limbs like keeping them in condition and balancing his motor and circulatory functions, but don't allow them to do natural things like move more than the absolute minimum to lift food to his mouth and take in oxygen.

Basically, he's got one of those powers with a severe downside. Phenomenal cosmic power, itty bitty living space.

*Most common because sometimes the explanation is one thing, sometimes its another because comic book writers are illiterate and apathetic and don't bother keeping anything straight ever.

FuryOfFirestorm: Bloody William: Sgt Otter: At least Negasonic Teenage Warhead* is still dead.

*Yes, that was her actual X-Men codename.

I'm sorry, is Monster Magnet too awesome for you?

It's funny, Grant Morrison named her after the song, and Monster Magnet constantly references Marvel comics. One of their songs is Ego, The Living Planet.

kid_icarus: Wait...Cyclops is the Phoenix now? Jeezuz....I'm glad I dropped the X-Men years ago.

Cyclops, White Queen, Colossus, Magick, and Namor became the Pheonix when Tony Stark's Phoenixkiller armor split up the essence of Phoenix before it could go into Hope Summers. That's the whole Avengers Vs. X-Men thing, and it won't be an ongoing idea.

Also, Scott's been cool ever since he started banging Emma Frost, and recently he's basically gone full Magneto, which makes him awesome.

Agreed. Cyclops stopped being a cardboard boy scout once he started putting his one-eyed shooter in Emma's diamond-encrusted cootch. Her awesome b*tchiness is rubbing off on Scott - figuratively and literally.


Cyclops used to be (and in all honestly, still is) one of my least favorite superheros. However, after delving into X-Men Legacy and the 2006+ Uncanny X-Men run, I've got to say that I've got a lot more respect for the character. And Bloody William is right, he's going full Magneto now, which is quite refreshing for his character. After the House of M story arc, SOMEBODY had to step up and save what few mutants were left in the world, and Cyclops (with a HUGE assist from Emma) is doing the job nicely. I haven't started reading X-Men vs. Avengers yet, but I can't wait until they put it up on the MDCU service. Sounds like a fun story.

Masso: steve-0: hey cyclops, Nightwing called and wants to know why you stole his costume.

[www.geekrest.com image 680x544]

Then he answered, "Hey you asshole, you know why I went with red? Because you are Nightwing, you're shtick is BLUE. You were BLUE in Teen Titans. You were BLUE when you're in Bludhaven. Why the fark did you go with red. Gawd, that's so stupid. fark that shiat."


implying cyclops' costume was ever red before as well? dick grayson started wearing red from day 1. and this red nightwing costume has been around a lot longer than cyclops' "redesign".

xanadian: I will say, though, that calling them "DC Comics" is a bit tautological...


Well, nobody refers to Detective Comics as "DC" and nobody calls the publishing company "Detective Comics." The company just wanted to associate lesser titles with the flagship title and over time the company became known as "DC" which years later became the name of the company.

I don't know much about comics but just based on the movies, Cyclops is kinda lame. And Wolverine was right, he was also kind of a dick. This could only help his character. But I am kind of a sucker for stories about good guys who go bad.
