    Apparently six years ago in December.
    And it originally had a bit if an author rant attached. "Why is it bad Scott killed this guy?"

    Was there indeed a huge fan backlash against Cyke for killing Xavier at the time the Phoenix Force run was released (aka AvX)?

    More of a writer backlash than a fan backlash. Most of the negative fan reaction was from people who would find nearly any action wrong if Cyclops did it.

    What annoys me is that it didn’t have any consequences… If someone killed you, you would be a bit angry about it, wouldn’t you? Comics are usually full of melodramas and it’s unfortunate to miss opportunities…

    Instead what we got was people with much higher (and messier) body counts getting holier than though about it.

    I'm on my phone so linking isn't a thing, but the same comic from above also has one retelling Xavier's death, except that he telepathically kills himself in order to have Scott blamed for it.

    AvsX caused Goldballs and Tempus to get their powers, Xavier may consider it a necessary evil.

    At the end of the day there was already a Phoenix Five in a previous life of Moira.

    This... is a joke, right?
    Let your wallet talk.

    Never forget, Cyke fans~ https://twitter.com/i/status/1246248602768486402

    When will Logan call out Jean for drafting children in her X-Squad?

    The WatXM staff are clear hypocrites for supporting The Crucible~

    Logan lecturing Shulkie about Krakoa is the epitome of hypocrisy.

    Hickman is building towards AvX 2.0 but, this time, the X-Men are actually the villains~

    Hilariously, the X-Men have now fully embraced mutant supremacy and racism against humans.

    I think what they mean is there was never actually any closure between Scott and Xavier.

    Isn't AvX also the run that raised Cyke's popularity as a character?

    At the hands of Bendis, it definitely spent more time further villainising Cyke instead of tying off loose ends.

    I still haven't been able to read Excalibur #15 and XoS Destruction, but Scott has just as many panels as Apocalypse in X-Men #15

    Well, there was no way that could happen because Scott died a few years later and kept being demonized through the X-Books for, approximately, 5 or 6 years. By characters, writers and editors. Hell, JDW even had a little discussion with us, in this very thread, during Rosenberg's run, and said he really felt Cyclops still had to pay for something during that time, but it would end with Rosenberg. When Xavier came back, the writers absolutely refused to have any interactions between him and Scott until Powers of X #2. Hard to have any closure, unless Hickman decides to present their reunion in a flashback. I think the opportunity for that is long past, should have happened in Rosenberg's run.

    Cyclops was awesome in the final few chapters of X Of Swords today. This was definitely one of his and Jean's finest moments.
