    My favorite Cyclops runs/eras will always be Grant Morrison's New X-men and Whedon's Astonishing. I know Scott continued to grow in the Brubaker and Fraction era but those weren't my fav X-men stories. The Bendis Scott definitely had some good moments and he did become a very complex nuanced character there.

    Cyclops became more of a radical and radicals tend to be polarizing figures. To some he was more of a mutant savior and to others his behavior and actions were too extreme so he became a type of boogey man which explains the Hitler comparisons. You see that with folks labeled as radicals, some love them and others demonize them.

    I know a lot of Cyclops fans resent the Hitler comparisons (and understandably so) but at least that era is completely over with. It is done. Cyclops has grown a lot since then and now he's in happier times with the rest of the Summers family. He's all in with Xavier's new dream. He is the captain commander and though some wish he had a bigger role, he still has a very important role in the X-books especially Hickman's book which is the flagship.

    Trust me: you're not the only one.

    Pretty much. Marvel (and especially JDW) had a meltdown over readers siding with Cyke.

    Then you had years of creative bankruptcy where the X-Books were only kept alive by hating on Cyke for one arbitrary reason or another. You really can't blame Hickman for wiping the slate clean, tbh, because those years were incredibly toxic and did no one any favors. Pretty much the only one that didn't end up a hypocrite (especially when the Supremacicst Nation of Krakoa has emerged), ironically, was Scott-- because the dude was a corpse for most of it.

    Still can't wipe the taste of Marvel having their cake and eating it too, however.
    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?

    You'd think the WatXM staff are clear hypocrites for supporting The Crucible~

    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 Magneto's philosophy of mutant supremacy XD

    I just remembered that it's been at least ten years since Scott was treated well in an event, and I really hope King in Black is a game-changer

    He'll be hardly in it.
    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.

    Cyclops question:

    What year/comic book issue did we find out that Cyclops couldn't control his optic blasts because of head trauma?

    Sorry
    I misread, and confused "mental trauma" and "head trauma"

    Not sure if this is right, but Marvel Wikia mentions that it was revealed in X-Factor #39 during Inferno.

    Hopefully exactly the same amount he was willing to give anyone not named Namor.

    I wonder if Hickman will bring back the Han and the children that are in the weapon x program.

    Its a Kirby style art and he's surrounded by other Kirby creations

    I also think this could be from his spotlight issue, as the story is supposed to be how the emergence of the first heroes affects young Scott before he meets Xavier. Not knowing where this cover comes from I have to guess.
