    It's not a matter of connecting the dots for me. It's a matter of narrative quality. It's a matter of internal logic for the characters. Show, don't tell. Writing 101.

    They can co-exist, sure. But we're not seeing much of the pre-Krakoa Scott he has been consistently portrayed as for most of his existence as a character. And that is the problem.

    You're right, Kingdom X. As I told other friends who are Scott's fans too: this portrayal is consistent to Krakoa Scott. But it doesn't mean it's a good thing... :(

    I don't see Scott as gleefully beating up anyone, even villains. Angrily? Yes. Some of them. But gleefully? Never.

    You thought that joke while he was being "hugged" was in character?

    'Cause I saw it and I - non-ironically - asked myself if he had forgotten how to ricochet his blasts.

    Scott doesn't need to move the plot to read like Scott, though, does he?

    Was there anything in his portrayal that made you think: "that's very in character for Cyclops"?

    I don't think so either. Not for them as a couple. And individually, while Jean has been like the rest of the run (decent but not great), Scott has been lackluster at best.

    Yes! Even though she's superlative in so many ways, she does feel real and that's because of how complex she is - like a real person.
