    Well, if HCT hadn't happened, a recluse, an Alaskan fisherman, and a cadaver in that order.

    If you're going in assuming this is a Scott solo. To this point Hickman has done what he said: this isn't a solo, and the cast changes from book to book. I don't particularly like the voices his characters have or the stories so far, but he hasn't lied yet.

    He'd probably just focus on family life afterward.

    Also, maybe mentoring the Champions? I'm not sure on what he would do afterward.

    Either way, the X-men's fight seems pretty endless in the mean time.

    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.
    Oh? Is Green Lantern worth picking up? I kinda bailed once Soranik Natu and the Yellow Lanterns bailed from the book, and I didn't pick up Hal Jordan's book.

    A Cyke solo book in the current Dawn of X era, to me, would have him working with non-mutant characters, to be honest.

    But otherwise, I'd have either a slice-of-life book (sort-of like what we have now, just not labeled "X-Men") or an Extinction Team 2.0. Speaking of, where's Danger at now? Wasn't she bunking with Lorna the last time she was seen?

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

    She's not a mutant, even if she has the access to Krakoa she's not a citizen of Krakoa. Plus machines may not be welcomed in Krakoa.

    A Cyke solo should focus on his Commander duty and training.

    No way X-men feels like a Cyke solo, it's just a world building book, creating plots for other works.

    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.

    Danger is sort-of Xavier's neglected daughter, imo. Would love to see her (and the Extinction Team) return.

    And agreed-- X-Men is less Cyke solo and more Cyke-featured. A solo would imply character development for the protagonist. X-Men, for the past 3 issues, is more "hey, look! WORLDBUILD! LET'S SEND CYKE IN!"

    Apart from the first issue, we don't see much development from Cyke. He's just kinda... there.

    I don't know. I'm really just hoping there's more plot to this book. Otherwise, it's kinda a waste of money. Might as well just buy the other books for the full story and drop this one.

    Marauders seems like the book that'll matter the most in DoX.

    X-Force thus far has had the most important plot point happen.

    True. But Marauders feels like the true flagship of DoX.

    Yes! It's Grant Morrison. One of the best things, is that se getso much for issue, something that would take almost an arc in today's comics, Morrison does in one. And is Hall Jordan at his best, imo, Morrison tone down the trouble maker hothead in favor of the "experienced space cop".

    What I really want from Cyclops solo is to it be a solo, not line Coates Black Panther where T'Challa if off panel in half the pages and Shuri, Storm and the supporting cast does mostra of the work while Black Panther walks around feeling conflicted.
    I want to read something line Daredevil, Wolverine or Deathstroke. Something about the main charactet walk around having adventures and actually be the main character.

    I might pick it up, then. I always felt that Geoff John's Hal Jordan and Utopia!Clops were kindred spirits (and then Geoff John's Sinestro and AvX!Clops).

    Agreed. If X-Men were to be a Cyke solo book, then actually make it a solo book. Leave the world-building / plot teasers to the other books if that's where it's going to be explored. As things are, I feel I've been spending for a whole lot of nothing / filler. Like, the book isn't bad, but it feels like it's going nowhere, either.

    Not good. Not bad. Not even close to great. Just... alright at best. Maybe bland at worst.

    So, this is the last time we see Scott in 2019.
    What's your best and worst moment of Scott in 2019?
    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 liked him meeting with the champions as an adult. That was the best.
    Worst was probably on Rosenberg's run when he was shot in the eye by Hope.

    This. Both of them. I'd also add that Rosenbubbles' run is best forgotten.
