          Remember how upset Beast got when Cyclops left him to sit in Osborne's prison for a few issues like he wasn't on that mission where Cyclops' entire plan centered around himself being murdered, hopefully resurrected, and tortured.

            pretty sure beast was let go, not saved, and when he got back, no one explained to him that magneto had suddenly join the x-men in beast's absence, and from then on cyclops was keeping secrets from beast and the x-men. cyclops made several moves in beast's absence that beast would not have allowed, and cyclops' actions and motives are what lead straight to krakoa bullshit

        It's honestly sad that the X-Men writers of the last 20 or so years would rather tell a story of Cyclops' downfall and failure than treating him as a genuine hero. I would be lying if I said that didn't make him stand out more than the fairly generic characterization from Claremont's run, but it's still sad to see people treat a character like this for the sake of a story. Although characters like Hank Pym and Scarlet Witch have it worse still.

          Claremont retired the dude to become a family man, which was the right call at the time. Then editorial decided to bring Jean back and to have Scott run out on his wife and son to frick his old gf instead. Claremont fricking hated that and didn't want to be involved so that plot was almost entirely told in X-Factor with only some of Maddie's parts appearing in X-Men. Eventually Claremont decided to bite the bullet and resolve the plot by revealing Maddie was a clone in Inferno, and then he begrudgingly took Cyclops back after X-Tinction Agenda for the launch of adjectiveless. But Claremont also left that title almost immediately.

          The original plan was that Maddie was the literal, actual Jean. The weird clone thing was something concocted by the editors and other writers

          You got your shit wrong bud. Hank is the star athlete. He was a promising college/ high school qb. Scott is an angry dejected teenager until Xavier gives him a purpose. It's part of reason where his nickname slim comes from because he's sort gangly when he's younger. He's only an in athletic chad later in life because he's a massive autist who deticated himself into being the perfect soldier. Beyond that Scott was a legit school shooter in the making. In Prelude to Schism there's a whole issue about Scott talking to Xavier about if he ever just thought about letting loose and hurting people with their powers.

    Anonymous

    Scott Summers is a guy who has been training to lead super powered teams since he was a young teen. More than that, since his powers come from a genetic mutation that makes him the target of violent prejudice, he was educated to be an example to humans of what a 'good' mutant was and to other mutants of what they should be. His mutation is to emit a 'beam' of 'force' through his eyes whenever they are open. The beams are essentially kinetic force torrenting out of his eyes as if they were portals to a greatly pressurized red universe. He cannot control it enough to shut it off while his eyes are open, so he either closes his eyes since he is immune to the effect or he wears special visors or glasses that can stop the beam.

    Scott is a good leader. His the first one in the building, past to leave. Trains hardest. His 'vision' of spacial trajectories and tactical workings is prodigious, he is an excellent planner and when fighting his aim and battlefield calculations are dead on.
    He is wound tight, as leaders tend to be. His powers psychologically reinforce the notion of self control.

    In his older years, Scott has been radicalized, he is not interested in how humanity sees mutantkind but is only interested its survival above all else and in his sole role as leader of all mutants second to that. He is ruthless and righteous in his pursuit of mutant survival. He has put the survival of humanity at risk to give mutantkind a better chance at survival and this has made him a controversial figure. The gambit I mentioned over the survival of mutants worked btw, but it is still not looked upon kindly by non mutants and some mutants too.

    Scott loves Jean Grey, another mutant he's known since he was a kid.

    I hope this helps.

He is also somehow the only man who most epitomizes the Incel stereotype in demeanor and mindset so totally despite being able to get laid whenever the frick he wants with both his ex whenever her boyfriend isn't using her or a surgically altered turboprostitute who had to suck dick to get every job she's ever had and got really really good at it.

          I say that because Storm has never really been an interesting character. Claremont's Storm is "she is the perfect all-beautiful goddess who's better than everyone at everything and who everyone admires" and then what little character she had under Claremont was subsequently lost once he left so she could just look/talk imperiously and occasionally call a younger hero "child" or something.

      Idgi, from the panels you posted it feels like Beast is being presented as "in the right" here, no?

      The first image presents cyclops as getting ahead of himself and making calls about things in a way that disrespects characters who he should be caring about.

      The second has him acknowledging that while everything may have turned out ok, his line of thinking and the actions he took to get there were lacking in humanity/compassion. He then goes on to solemnly praise Beast for sticking to a virtue he was lacking in during the prior events and to never change that about himself.

      Is there more context or?

        by telling beast to stay on cyclops' back, cyclops is baiting beast and basically telling beast he's going to do more bullshit. the fact that cyclops says that to just one person instead of all the x-men means he's placing the responsibility of his actions on to someone else. the opposite of what a leader does

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          I disagree with that interpretation (at least with this information available here). It seems to be Cyclops is acknowledging a fault he has, a fault that can be tempered by a quality another respected member of his team has in spades.

          While it's important for a leader to take responsibility and make the final call. It's also important for them to realize their limitations and delegate roles and responsibilities in order to make the team function as best as possible. I also don't think Cyclops was really placing a responsibility on Beasts back (not in an official capacity anyway), it feels more like he was commending him on his action (holding him accountable) and voicing his gratitude.

          It also felt like a form of apology. In first image, Cyclops has dismissed Beast's feelings on the matter without even consulting him, as if he didn't value Beast's feelings or opinion on the matter. The Second feels apologetic in how he voices how highly he regards Beast's virtue. He's making clear that he holds Beast in high esteem (which also explains why he directs that comment specifically at Beast).

            no, cyclops directly placed the burden of morality and leadership on to beast there, and he'd done it multiple times

              I'm just not getting that from those images... Again I could be missing something without context but on those two images alone I'm getting apologetic, acknowledgement of ones shortcomings, and respect.

              What would the bait even be for? Couldn't Cyclops had just said "if you care so much Dr. Virtue lead your own team." or something to that effect?

              Also how could Cyclops be putting the burden of morality and leadership on Beast if it's something Beast is already doing? Cyclops isn't telling him to do something extra or in addition, he's telling Beast to continue doing what he's always done (and seems to had did just recently) which is challenge him on the morality of his calls.

              let's assume it's an apology

              even so, cyclops (the alleged alpha leader) directly tells beast to keep challenging him. cyclops uses the word "CHALLENGE" to beast. that means he's goading beast in to a competition. it means that if cyclops continued to be the darling of the x-men, cyclops premeditated the types of actions he was willing to do and manipulate the x-men in to disliking beast and breaking beast's morale.

              which is exactly what happened, which means a) cyclops used his "strategy" and "tactics" to get rid of someone instead of work with them. if he's so competent, both are possible but he chose to alienate beast or b) cyclops is not as competent as he's made out to be and made the wrong decision or c) cyclops is not as competent as everyone thinks, he knows that, and wants to get rid of an actual competitor because cyclops can't stand to do anything but be a leader

              >that means he's goading beast in to a competition
              This isn't the interpretation I get. When I tell someone to keep challenging me on a quality, it means I'm accepting they're better than I am at exhibiting that quality and I need to rise to the occasion set up by them. It's both an admission of my own aptitude(or lack thereof) and praise of the other persons ability. A challenge can be a competition between two people, but it can also be a competition within yourself, even if the standards are being set by someone.

              Idk, does your image(3) come before or after the previous (2) posted? Because if it comes before, than the 2nd image posted feels like 'somewhat' of a resolution to the tension built up in the other 2 images. If it comes after then I can see how maybe the tone of image(2) is more sardonic than genuine.

        It's from Secret Invasion. The Skrulls hold San Francisco hostage and are taking out the mutants (this is during the island days when the X-Men were based there) so Scott makes the call to alter the Legacy Virus to affect Skrulls instead of Mutants then douses his people in it and has them all peacefully surrender to Skrull forces. Scott decided that making the call to kill them was right as it would save the most lives while Beast hated the idea of bio warfare.
