    I think that's what's irking me. I pick up the book looking for-- I don't know-- something like HoX/PoX that tells me where the story is going, but it's all been one-and-dones/set-up stories. And much as I enjoyed the Summers family stories-- and would willing subscribe for an entire series of it-- I kinda want a book entitled "X-Men" to move the plot along, rather than be an elaborate, what, advertisement for the other books?
    Don't like? Don't read. Let your wallet talk.

    When will Logan call out Jean for putting his clone and his clone's underage clone in an X-Squad?

    I also think Hickman said something like if there is a flagship book, it's Marauders.

    Which shouldn't happen.
    He is the rock that their island nation is built upon. The people of Krakoa know him and what he has done for them over the years, and they look up to him. He might not be RULING Krakoa, but he is definitely leading it.

    I hate that Hickman has a lock on Scott bc Im not liking X-men and his stiff voice for him. I wish he were at least appearing in other titles as his rotating cast seem to be

    He sorta is, I guess. He's the first responder to all the shenanigans. But, eh, maybe Scott's so efficient that he finishes problems in one issue XDDD

    Scott: I'm just the Captain Commander for fun.

    I agree with you there. Hickman's voice for Scott isn't terrible, but I'd like for Scott to pop up elsewhere. The captain commander role so far seems kinda vague and the X-men seem vulnerable to anything. At least for now, lol.

    Did I miss anything big?

    Actually he is só inefficient, that the other teams will have to solve the problems. Now, Hal Jordan in The Green Lantern is efficient.
    Cyclops need a solo asap, and Christopher Priest just finished his Deathstroke run, and one thing Prist remembers when writing superheroes ia that the are supposed to be efficient and good in what they do.

    I think a solo would be better than what X-men currently is but what do you think would be the supporting cast?

    X-men already feels like a Cyclops solo. The problem is that its not a particually well written one. Marvel Team Up featuring Cyclops. The current format reminds me of the Jean Grey solo but with less of a cohesive theme

    It is weird. he is the main character but he is just kind of there.
    The stories last one issue and are more about planting seeds than about Cyclops.
    So it feels like a solo but at the same time is not

    Cyclops is there just to pass a sense of continuity, imo. Hickman likes and excels in worldbuilding, and that ia what he is doing.

    Not really. A solo implies character development for the main character. Scott is just the point of view character for the books.

    It should be a real solo series, not a team book with his name on the cover, you know? I just want to see the character on his own, he is always in a team book, leading or following, but I want him having solo adventures, like Wolverine, Daredevil, Captain America, etc.
    For supporting cast they should avoid the usual faces, so avoid Emma and Jean for example. Personally would like to see Colleen Wing, Lee Forrester, Dr. Nêmesis, Corsair and Mister Sinister.
    For villains, I don't know, maybe try to create some new ones?

    That sounds nice.
    It is strange, Cyclops has been defined by the X-men for so long, the team has been the center of his life since he was a kid. I struggle to imagine him outside of it. What is Cyclops without the X-men?
    My opinions are my own
