The Pull List (5/7/14): Cyclops goes solo

Posted By on Wed, May 7, 2014 at 2:31 PM

I'm a Cyclops apologist.

Since I first discovered Scott Summers, the visored X-Man, I've defended him against allegations of cruelty, cowardice and general lameness. Even with the recent hardships the writers at the House of Ideas have put him through, I've been able to somehow justify his occasionally cold and off-putting tactics. Now he has his own series. But wait, it's not that Cyclops. It's the one from the original team, which was recently plucked out of their time period by scribe Brian Michael Bendis.

If you need a story that challenges negative perceptions of the character, check out Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men run. It's one thing I always point to when facing off with the anti-Cyclops, pro-Wolvie contingent. Before that, Claremont's years at the helm of the core X-Men series.

Like solo series before it (mini or not), this one will likely fade away into obscurity. But with the talents of writer Greg Rucka, it has a shot at some justice for Cyke. And even though Wolverine is the only X-Man to maintain a solo series through decades of mainstream continuity, they are a few of us that will go straight to the Cs this week.
